Linux News Today: ownCloud Desktop Client Updated with HiDPI Improvements, Better Syncing
Today, February 10, 2016, ownCloud Inc. was proud to announce the release and general availability of new versions for its ownCloud Desktop and ownCloud Android clients.
Looking at the release notes both clients, it would appear that the ownCloud developers managed to implement a great number of features. For example, the ownCloud Desktop client now works a lot better on HiDPI displays, offers improvements for RTL languages, and brings in better syncing.
On the other hand, the team responsible for the ownCloud Android client managed to add a lot of significant changes to the way the mobile application handles files from and to an ownCloud server. Basically, it will try to avoid file duplication during file uploads.
“Today, we published an update to the ownCloud Android client which introduces improved file upload handling and UI improvements; and an update to the ownCloud Desktop client bringing updated HiDPI support, networking improvements and better syncing,” said Richard Ahlquist.
Available now for Linux, Mac, Windows, and Android
Below, we’ve attached the changelogs for both the ownCloud Desktop client, which is now available for download on Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems, and the ownCloud Android client, which users can install from the Google Play Store.
As we reported a few weeks ago, the ownCloud team is preparing very hard for the next major update of the powerful, cross-platform and open-source ownCloud 9 Server, which should be available later in 2016 with a great number of improvements and new features.
Also, let’s not forget about the cool ownCloud Mail app, which received a new update a few days ago, as reported by Softpedia, bringing features like image blocking support, direct display of inline images, a much faster unified inbox, as well as better overall performance of the front-end.
