The new version of ownCloud includes enhancements that make it easy to edit your files. […]
With the Web Application Open Platform Interface (WOPI) support, the Microsoft Office Online Server collaboration tool can be integrated into your ownCloud in the future. Users benefit from increased compatibility with MS Office formats and the presentation of the customized Office interface on their own. Likewise, the new file lock feature prevents, simultaneously processing a document, a conflict version. In addition, the tagging function is supplemented by so-called. "Static Tags" that can be used to define specific guidelines for individual files. OwnCloud 10.1 and its apps are now available for download at www.owncloud.org/download and marketplace.owncloud.com.
Office system collaboration
With a new release, development engineers point out the demand for further development of file sharing software into a comprehensive collaboration tool, focusing more on productivity and collaboration in the future. Integrating Microsoft Office Online is an important step in this respect. In earlier releases of open source solutions such as Collabora Online and ONLYOFFICE have already been integrated. Business users can now edit documents stored in ownCloud using Microsoft solutions. It enables organizations to run an office environment with a familiar user interface and full compatibility with all available Office formats on a private, secure server.
Smaller file-lock conflict
With support for Microsoft Office Online, ownCloud 10.1 with "WebDAV Locks" provides another useful document editing feature. For example, if a OwnCloud user edits a document using Office Online, other users can only make changes if they collaborate on a document in Office Online. This prevents other users from making controversial changes to this document over a period of time. This prevents conflicts when editing documents. Locked files can be recognized on the web interface in the symbolic lock.
More tagging options for administrators
For even greater automation in file management, ownCloud 10.1 has been enhanced by the Collaborative Tags function. In the future, administrators can create so-called "static tags" and make them available to specific groups of users. In applications such as Firewall for Files, Document Classification, or Workflow App, these tags can be assigned specific rules so that, for example, certain files can only be opened by individual user groups (eg business leaders, department managers, etc.). Static tags are visible to every user. Only certain groups of users will be allowed to assign or remove tags, allowing them to connect files with predefined rules.
Cloud Federation with OpenCloudMesh 1.0
ownCloud 10.1 supports open standard "OpenCloudMesh 1.0". This allows you to link instances on your own voice and to achieve mutual exchange of information. This creates a world network of many decentralized nodes, each of which is subject to complete control and individual rules of compliance of the respective operator. The development of OpenCloudMesh in collaboration with other open source suppliers includes a clean interface and better stability, creating the foundation for future improvements.
Semantic version creates more clarity for administrators
In combination with the release of their own club 10.1, there is a transition to semantic versions. This is a great relief, especially for administrators, because the version number of each future release allows a quicker review of content and process upgrades following the Major.Minor.Patch (or Breaking.Feature.Fix) logic.
Large versions therefore contain great innovations, such as architectural changes, which can also lead to incompatibility with the interfaces. Less versions bring new features and may include changes to the database. Patch issues, however, resolve vulnerabilities or bugs and can usually be captured with minimal downtime.
