Today, one week in, we’ve found and fixed many low level issues and are starting to feel confident about this release. It is becoming harder for our own testing to find problems: our internal Nextcloud instance is updated, so are many of our private Nextcloud instances. We need help! And, as we still got a box of t-shirts (that is what happens if you keep ordering ’em) we decided we should throw one in for whoever finds a serious upgrade bug.

Upgrading and t-shirts
Nextcloud 12 is just 2 weeks from release so it is time to step up testing. We want this release to be as stable as Nextcloud 11 was, more even! And your help is crucial in making this happen: with the large variety of different setups and use cases out there, it is paramount to have a wide testing base to ensure stable functioning.
An alternative way of upgrading is choosing the ‘beta’ channel in the admin panel, we’ve now made Nextcloud 12 Beta 2 available there. If you are on 11.0.x, you can upgrade to 12.0.0 beta2 and if you’re on beta1 it’ll also be available as an upgrade!
And remember: if you’re brave enough to upgrade a production system, be sure to at least make a database backup!
A few simple rules for winning a t-shirt: it has to be a unreported, non-duplicate bug in the upgrade process; that is, something which goes wrong with the upgrade, not in normal usage. Also, we’ll generally consider bugs due to the same root cause duplicates.
smallprint: we reserve the right to decide who gets a t-shirt, no debates possible and if we decide to reward you with a hug instead of a new shirt you should be super happy with that as human contact is very healthy!
