Minor Nexclout updates released for Hub 4 and 6

We’ve made available new minor releases for Hub 4 and 6. You can find the full changelog of fixes and improvements for these releases on our website.

New in version 26.0.10

Highlights in version 26.0.10 include security-related fixes, such as updating the CA certificate bundle and handling potential vulnerabilities in the WebDAV component. The release improves performance with SFTP enhancements and optimizations in components like the TemplateManager and brute force protection mechanism. And, as always, backports of fixes aswell.

New in version 27.1.5

Highlights in version 27.1.5 include updating the CA certificate bundle, addressing CSRF check failures at login, and handling potential vulnerabilities such as idn_to_utf8 returning false, and other security-related fixes. Performance improvements involve lowering the threshold for system address book sync, optimizing file-sharing logic, and avoiding file operations when disk space is low. Additionally, the release introduces various system stability and reliability fixes, such as proper version fetching from shared files and avoiding unnecessary deletions. And, as always, …backports!

Desktop Client 3.11.0

In other news, the Desktop Client team pushed out a minor release, 3.11.0, fixing bugs and improving performance. You can find the full changelog here.

Improvements include the ability to remove remotely deleted files locally in case of upload errors and Material icons used for folders. Plus, we added multiple improvements for macOS, such as better reply notifications in Talk and opening Nextcloud after installation.

Don’t forget the desktop client now requires macOS version 12.0+.

Minor Nextcloud releases are security and functionality bug fixes, not rewrites of major systems that risk user data! We subject our codebase to extensive automated testing, followed by validation on a series of real-world systems before releasing them to the public. This ensures that minor release upgrades are generally painless and reliable. As the updates not only fix feature issues but also security problems, it is highly recommended to upgrade!

If you are maintaining a mission-critical Nextcloud system for your enterprise, we also highly recommended Nextcloud Enterprise. With a hotline to the core Nextcloud developers, it’s the best guarantee of reliable service for your users and peace-of-mind for system administrators – maybe that’s you!
