ownCloud upgrade to version 9 completed

ownCloud logo with background_1_0.pngWe have upgraded our ownCloud file sync and sharing servers to version 9 series (9.0.2 to be specific)

This is a major version upgrade from ownCloud 8 series and includes 3 main improvements:

  • Collaboration has been improved.  Comments can be added to files that you are working on.  Files can be organized via tags and makes searching quicker and easier.  The Activity app keeps you informed of any changes within your cloud via RSS or in the web client.  Notifications will pop up if files are shared.
  • A new storage API improves scalability for large clouds with terabytes of data
  • If your organization would like to integrate with other ownCloud consumers, full federation capabilities are now supported.  Connect and share securely to other ownCloud servers.  Search conveniently across servers with auto complete.

If you are already a user of ownCloud, you can install the latest desktop sync utility by logging into your account on the web client and visiting your personal settings area.
