Today we have made available updates to Nextcloud 15, 14 and 13, which aim to improve the stability, security and reliability of your server. We restrict minor updates to bug fixes and minor, non-intrusive improvements because both home and enterprise users need to know that these upgrades are safe and reliable. Customers can rely on the stand-by upgrade support from Nextcloud GmbH if needed.
As usual, we’d like to remind you: Don’t forget to update your app regularly too. Up to date = more secure!
Improvements in this release
As always, the changes are small and will make for a safe and reliable update.
With 40 new changes, Nextcloud 15.0.5 brings UI improvements, fixes in link shares and improves the brute force protection security feature. Nextcloud 14.0.7, with a bit less than 20 changes, shows to be a very mature version.
The list of changes in Nextcloud 13.0.11 – only 4 changes – is even smaller. As it gets really close the end of its public support cycle, we strongly recommend users to migrate to Nextcloud 14. If you are still on Nextcloud 13 and want to continue to keep your data secure, request access to the Long Term Support service of Nextcloud GmbH for further security and stability updates.
As usual, here are some highlights from today’s release. The list is, of course, much longer, and you can find a full overview of the changes we released in our changelog.
In all versions:
The delay brute force protection was slightly reduced to be below 30 seconds, thus improving the solidity of clients and reducing the risk of creating timeout issues.
The casing of LDAP attributes was fixed
The SMB library wrapper was updated
In Nextcloud 14.0.7 and 15.0.4:
The owner of files or folder can now be correctly determinated when shared external storage is used
The recent files list was fixed
In Nextcloud 15.0.4 only:
The original path of files in the trashbin can be shown
The expiration date changes for link shares were fixed
Uploads of empty files on S3 primary storage were fixed
PHP 7.3 incompatibility issues were corrected
Many UI 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 painless and reliable. As the updates not only fix feature issues but also security problems, it is a bad idea to not upgrade!
This is, of course, also true for apps: Keeping them updated has security benefits, besides the new features and other bug fixes.
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 system administrator.

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.
Today, US-based file sync & share vendor Kiteworks announced their acquisition of ownCloud and Dracoon. Kiteworks points out that their customers now have access to their file-sharing application. It is to be expected they will not maintain 3 similar products, but customers will have to migrate to the US firms‘ platform or look for another […]
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.
