Note: There will be no more releases of Nextcloud Hub 2 (23.0.x). Upgrade to Nextcloud Enterprise to continue to get security and stability updates or move to 24.0.x or Nextcloud Hub 3 (25.0.x). Don’t forget that running web-facing software without regular updates is risky. Please stay up to date with Nextcloud releases of both the server and its apps, for the safety of your data! Customers can always count on our upgrade support if needed.
Note²:PHP 7.4 is no longer officially supported by the PHP community. Nextcloud has supported PHP 8.0 and newer versions for some time now, and we strongly recommend you move to a newer version of PHP. Version 8.0 is already out of active support (!) and has only 11 months of security updates left. Nextcloud Hub 3 (25.0.x) deprecates PHP 7.4 but still works with it. Still we recommend you use PHP 8.1 and our upcoming Hub 4 release will drop 7.4 support. This release is also on track to support PHP 8.2 which was released today.
Nextcloud Hub 3 was released last October and we highly recommend that you upgrade to benefit from the latest features. Check out the release announcement here.
End of public support for Nextcloud Hub 2 (23.0.x series)
Nextcloud Hub 2 (23.0.x) is no longer maintained. We will continue to release security and bug fix updates only for Nextcloud Enterprise 23 and older. If you are a home user, move to Hub 2 (24.0.x) or Hub 3 (25.0.x) as soon as possible. If you use Nextcloud in a commercial setting, check out our Nextcloud Enterprise as that is likely more suited for you. As always we strongly recommend you update to ensure you have a secure and reliable content collaboration platform that respects your digital sovereignty!
This is, of course, also true for apps: Keeping them updated has security benefits, besides the new features and other bug fixes.
Stay safe: keep your server up-to-date!
Minor Nextcloud releases are security and functionality bug fixes, not rewrites of major systems that risk user data! We also do extensive testing, both in our code base and by upgrading a series of real-world systems to the test versions. This ensures that upgrades to minor releases are generally painless and reliable. As the updates not only fix feature issues but also security problems, it is a bad idea to not upgrade!
If you are maintaining a mission-critical Nextcloud system for your enterprise, it is highly recommended that you get yourself some insurance (and job security… who gets blamed if the file handling system isn’t working as expected?). A hotline to the core Nextcloud developers is the best guarantee for reliable service for your users, and the job safety of you as a system administrator.
Our latest release supports a healthy meeting culture, introduces the Nextcloud Assistant and emphasizes user-centric design, transparency and user control. Thank you to our community! 💙 Nextcloud would not be the same without our dedicated, encouraging community. A huge thank you to the thousands of community members for making this release the best it can […]

Video calls and online chats are second nature for us at this point. Taking your work call virtually or communicating with your manager online can all be done from home and this style of working is generally accepted. However, what is not universally accepted is the fact that Big Tech firms are ambiguous about what […]
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 […]
Data Loss Prevention, or DLP, is an essential security tool for any business or organization. Since you never know when you may be at risk of a data breach, it’s important to adopt some form of DLP. A typical example are anti-virus scanners. Thanks to the new ICAP support, Nextcloud can now be made to […]
