There are many projects that excite in the free software world, but few are doing as well as ownCloud, “your own cloud.” Yesterday presented its fifth version, which include innovative features plus many improvements in three key points for these software features: quality, safety and performance .
official announcement, which begins with an introduction “academic” (in my opinion), explains how thanks to a community of developers increasingly involved with the project and after two events has been polishing ownCloud quality depth . Also, the common push ownCloud has provided new documentation which will surely appreciate both ordinary users and the developers.
As for security , have been some changes to prevent vulnerabilities XSS, we have implemented a new vulnerability disclosure policy for rapid response to update the same way, have improved security controls by integrating known Open Source ClamAV antivirus , and of course have fixed a bunch of bugs .
About performance , a single fact: some tests determine that ownCloud 5.0 is 500% faster than ownCloud 4.5 . One improvement that will particularly benefit ownCloud facilities with a large number of users. All thanks to several internal changes, including having rewritten from scratch a few key components such as the file system cache.
What new features for the user? There is talk of a redesign of the interface , an option to recover deleted files , new search engine , and enhancements including the main ownCloud modules, including desktop client. Today is expected to publish an article giving a breakdown everything, but you know that you can try ownCloud when you want, without missing a beat (one try).
And finally, downloading ownCloud 5.0.
