Documents App 9.1.0

9.1.x
help

#1

I've just upgraded my FreeNAS based oC installation from 9.0.3 to 9.1.0 but have lost the Documents app.

It's not in the App list when I went to add in the others disabled during the upgrade, and when I've copied across the /documents folder from the 9.0.3 install it says it's only compatible with 9.0.

Is this going to be coming back in 9.1 or do I need to roll back?

Thanks

Server configuration
Operating system: FreeNAS
Web server: nginx
Database: mysql
PHP version: 5.6
ownCloud version (see ownCloud admin page): 9.1.0
Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install: 9.0.3 > 9.1.0

See:

If you rely on a specific app it always worth to check if an compatible version of that app is compatible before doing an upgrad.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I thought Documents was one of the Approved apps now, so had foolishly assumed this would be up to date :frowning:

Although I don't use it very often, I liked the fact multiple users can collaborate on a document. I'll leave things as they are for the time being, although its a worry this hasn't been updated, especially considering the situation with 'the otherCloud that shall not be named'

Hi,

in this case approved doesn't mean that the app is instantly compatible with a new major release. This is only valid for "official" apps. See this docs for a definition of these therms:

https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.2/developer_manual/app/publishing.html

Concerning the "otherCloud":

The documents app is a community maintained app (AFAIK by a single developer) so this is completely unrelated

Thanks for explaining the difference. I'll try and bear this in mind for future updates.

On the otherCloud point - I think it is relevant as this is an uncertain time, and the likelihood of both being around in 2-3 years is pretty slim IMHO. Picking the wrong horse could be more painful in the future, whilst at the minute it pretty easy to switch between whilst the code is so alike. I even set-up an otherCloud server last night and linked to a copy of my ownCloud files and database. When an app isn't updated, it begs the question if that developer has already picked their horse and it's not the one you've backed!

The main developer of the App https://github.com/owncloud/documents/graphs/contributors is still quite active for oC:
