It has been a week of releases with Monday our Outlook Add-in, yesterday our Desktop Client and today we’re making available an update to Deck, our team planning Kanban app part of our Groupware suite. This version integrates Activities and improves on comments on cards, introduces a REST API, undo, shortcuts and much more.
What is new
With a major Nextcloud release coming (Nextcloud 15 Beta 1 is already out! while Beta 2 is coming later today), many apps are preparing updates to be compatible with the latest and greatest from the Nextcloud team. Deck takes the opportunity to deliver a number of improvements. Let’s walk through them.
User interface & collaboration improvements
The main area of improvement has been around further facilitating team work. The new Activity integration makes it easier to keep track of what is happening and users can comment on cards in the revamped sidebar, following the design style of Nextcloud 15. You’ll get notified when you are mentioned or when a card was assigned to you.
Editing and viewing
Editing and viewing cards has improved, with a new compact mode, inline editing of card titles and an improved view when printing a board.

The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
Minor Nextcloud updates are released, as well as an update to the desktop client.
As always, minor releases include stability and security improvements that are designed to be a safe and quick upgrade.
