Win a t-shirt by testing Nextcloud 11 RC1!

group-photo-smallYou don’t have a Nextcloud t-shirt yet? Here’s your chance to win one: we just released Nextcloud 11 RC1 and we are offering a t-shirt to anyone who finds a problem with the upgrade process from Nextcloud 10! On top of that, we also have RC’s of Nextcloud 10.0.2 and 9.0.55 and finders of upgrade issues in those will also be eligible for a t-shirt.

Upgrading and t-shirts

Nextcloud 11 is near to a release and today, we publish the first release candidate. This means we have tested Nextcloud 11, fixed all issues we found and can not find any more serious issues. Which means we need your help to find more!

As upgrading is the most critical operation with a new release, we’re offering anyone who finds a bug in the upgrade process from Nextcloud 10 to Nextcloud 11 a t-shirt! However, obviously any bug report is welcome, not only those about upgrading!

You can download the Nextcloud 11 file directly here or find it in the ‘Get Involved’ section (bottom right) on our install page.

Today we also publish release candidates of Nextcloud 10.0.2 and 9.0.55 and for finding Nextcloud 10.0.1 -> 10.0.2 upgrade bugs you are also eligible for a t-shirt!

Please, grab and and test them!

An alternative way of upgrading is choosing the ‘beta’ channel in the admin panel, we’ve now made Nextcloud 11RC1 available there. If you are on 9.0.x, you can upgrade to 10.0.2RC1 that way, and if you then go there again and set it to beta a second time, you will go to Nextcloud 11RC1.

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!

    How to be disappointed that your upgrade went fine :slight_smile:

  2. I have tried to upgrade from the admin page, but no updates were available, althought my update channel was on beta.

    Switching the update channel to stable and then back to beta seems to solve the problem.

    Best Regards

  3. That is actually the expected behaviour. While the menu entry in the top left was removed we consider this the accepted behaviour because:

    1. One can create Office documents easily using the New File tab in the top
    2. Removing this allowed us to drastically speed up the startup time of Collabora (especially if a user receives external shares)
  4. Updated from 10.0.1 to 10.0.2 in stable channel:
    - Everything works fine so far.
    - But two info files of OwnBackup didn't pass the integrity check, thou it was updated to 16.11.0 over the new nextcloud store. As everything is working fine I don't care and will wait for the next OwnBackup update to resolve the notification.

  5. too bad... :sweat_smile:
    my manual upgrade and migration from owncloud 9.1.2 to nextclouod 11 RC2 went on without errors... :+1:

  6. Damn, that's actually a nice shirt.

    Quick q before I go and do a stupid thing like update my 10 install to 11 the day before I go on a 3 week holiday;

    Is the collabora situation sorted yet? I was planning on working on implementing that while I was away.

    I will document what I can if I have issues. I had some minor issues wiht the webpage updater with >, so expecting some more for the 11.

  7. Nope, no issue here.

    Now to wait on the nice app devs to update their version support.
