Message of alpha1 follows, beta further down
We're proud to release the first Alpha version of the 2.4.0 desktop client. Among a ton of refactorings we've done to stay future-proof, there are also new features like OAuth2 support, a better error view, more sharing features and better file manager integration.

We consider it quite safe to use (the auto test suites pass!) but we encourage you (as always) to have backups of your data.

We also provide a build in the 'testpilotcloud' theme. This is an independent themed client (using ownBrander) that you can use with a separate sync configuration. You can install both from here: https://owncloud.org/install/#testing-development

Please see the ChangeLog and download links on https://owncloud.org/changelog/desktop/

Happy testing...

Please report any issues as soon as possible to us. Ideally here in the thread or directly on GitHub. https://github.com/owncloud/client/issues

As usual, thanks to all contributors.

Enjoy!

PS: https://github.com/owncloud/oauth2 is needed server-side for OAuth2. Will also be in the ownCloud marketplace soon.

A bit more than 1 month later, we're announcing the beta1. We have updated the ChangeLog and download links.

Since the alpha1 had a bug with regards to hidden files on Linux and macOS, we want to ask you to update! Thank you

Happy new year everyone!

The final was released. We're about to publish a blog post explaining some of the new things in detail.

You can check the ChangeLog and downloads at https://github.com/owncloud/client/releases

The auto updater for Windows/Linux was already activated (Linux updates as usually go through your distro-specific updating). For macOS we had a compile issue for older Macs that lead to crashing on those Macs. This is fixed now and we'll enable the auto updater for macOS too :slight_smile:
