Version 14 of Nextcloud has been released. With this program it is possible to run cloud storage in-house. Nextcloud arose after a large number of developers at ownCloud have run away and started again. All components, including enterprise functionality, are offered as open source and the earnings model is equal to what Red Hat does, namely providing paid support for large customers. Nextcloud also promises a so-called drop-in replacement, which makes it possible to easily switch from ownCloud to Nextcloud. In version 14, video verification has been added, and two-stage authentication can be used. The complete release notes can be found on this page this is in short the changelog.
