In this update, several critical improvements have been made to enhance the system’s performance and security. The fixes tackle issues with partial cache entry in Files, auto-logout loop, brute-force protection for the federation endpoint, requests without read permission, and share status in WebDAV. These updates collectively contribute to a more robust and efficient user experience. Additionally, we handled issues with buffer chunked requests, storage background scanning, integer generation errors, preview generation, synchronization, file versioning. The capability for listing the root directory when using a case-insensitive option in SMB was also introduced.

Several improvements and fixes have been implemented to enhance the overall functionality and security of the system. Noteworthy changes include logging when crypto session data is lost for better tracking and troubleshooting. Additionally, there are fixes in migration processes, checkbox functionality, auto-logout loop, brute-force protection for the federation endpoint, WebDAV, error handling, and a PHP codebase update. Other fixes include work on handling admin defaults in sharing, preview generation issues, video verification, errors in nextcloud/files, and storage background scanning.

Version 28.0.3

In the latest update, several enhancements and bug fixes have been introduced to ensure a smoother and more secure user experience. Notably, issues such as successful authentication detection in Kerberos tests and the slow logout problem on Chrome-like browsers have been addressed. There are fixes made in user status feature, disabling of SSL checks for JavaScript modules, visual enhancements for icons, PHP codebase update, webdav default header fix, and various performance improvements and bug fixes, ranging from quota warnings to cache issues in WebDAV.

Additionally, the release addresses buffer chunked requests, handling admin defaults in sharing, storage background scanning, URL pulse decoding, Photos picker, fixes related to file handling, and security enhancements including bruteforce protection to email endpoints.

Desktop client 3.12.0

Nextcloud desktop client update 3.12.0 includes several bug fixes and feature additions such as client status reporting and file-locking enhancements. Additionally, we made updates to workflows and dependency bumps, and ran a code cleanup.
