We have just made available a release candidate of the Nextcloud Desktop client with a large number of fixes and improvements including a rework of our login flow. The new login flow uses the system browser, which should improve compatibility with many servers, especially those with tight security settings or non-standard authentication mechanisms.
Talking of authentication, the client now fully supports Client-side SSL Certificates for authentication and the new Windows build also supports TLS 1.3! You can grab the new client now.
Second, today we’ll make available a new test version of our Virtual Drive build of the client, and we’re looking for feedback on the progress we’ve made!
As always, a big thank-you goes to our community of contributors. Note that we are still looking for new people to join our team!
