You 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 RC.zip 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 10.0.2RC2.zip and 9.0.55RC2.zip 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!
