December 23, 2022

Mikaela Schneider

It’s been an incredible year at Nextcloud – thanks to our AMAZING community, partners, customers and users. We’ve hit some great milestones together, and have loved every minute of bringing you the best open-source collaboration platform. As 2022 comes to a close, we would love to share some of our highlights with you.

2 major releases: Nextcloud Hub 2 & 3

This year, Nextcloud announced 2 major releases of Hub 2 in May and Hub 3 in September.

Nextcloud Hub 2 introduced reactions and a media tab in Nextcloud Talk, undo and schedule sending email functionalities, as well as performance and scalability improvements in the back-end of Nextcloud Files.

Nextcloud Hub 3 is coming

Nextcloud Hub 3 was an even greater step forward where we announced our stunning new design, accessibility options and a bunch of new features to improve your digital well-being.

  • Nextcloud Photos 2.0: Photo editor, AI powered face and object recognition, tile view, album sharing and more!
  • Nextcloud Groupware: Mail 2.0 with improved performance and updated user interface. Contacts introduces organizational chart view
  • Nextcloud Talk: Polls, pasted links become widgets, more options –> more details in our blog!
  • Nextcloud Clients: updates available for Desktop, Android and iOS clients

One of our greatest releases yet, we hope it’s brought you joy, productivity and a healthier work life balance.

CloudComputing-Insider Awards winner

CCI_Award_2022_PLATIN_CloudContentManagement-01

For the 2nd time in a row, Nextcloud won 1st prize in the Cloud Content Management category of the CloudComputing-Insider Awards. The vote came from approximately 70,000 IT professionals and left behind Microsoft and Dropbox.

We’re very proud of this and we’d like to thank everyone who made this possible, that is, all of you! Especially all of you who voted, but also everyone else who consistently helps spread the word or improve Nextcloud directly with code, documentation, or helping other users on our forums. Every bit makes a difference!

Enterprise Day x2

Nextcloud held 2 Enterprise Days this year – in June and October – for our valued customers. Both events had a great turnout, led to interesting discussions and inspired the Nextcloud team to bring you even better features and functionalities for the future. If you got the opportunity to attend this year, thank you for your participation and those who missed it, we will announce next years soon!

In-person Nextcloud Conference

At the beginning of October, Nextcloud hosted its first in-person conference since 2019. Held over the weekend, we welcomed keynote speakers Maik Außendorf from the German Bundestag and digital rights and data privacy experts Felix Reda and Renata Ávila. From there were 2 panel sessions, 26 lightning talks and 4 workshops!

It was so wonderful seeing many of you in person this year and hope you had a great time meeting new people, listening to all the insightful talks and hacking with old friends.

Hackathon with the European Commission

In April and May this year, Nextcloud and the European Commission held the NextGov Hackathon that brought together 60 participants from 33 countries. There were 5 prize winners with 1st place going to a collaborative maps app by a participant from Germany.

Thank you to all the participants who contributed to our goal of building and protecting Europe’s digital sovereignty.
