ownCloud Introduces Version 4

May 25, 2012

The latest version of ownCloud includes file versioning and improved OpenDocument support.

ownCloud has released version 4 of its open source file sync and share project. According to the announcement, this version includes innovations and enhancements that make the project more flexible, secure, and innovative.

ownCloud 4 now includes file versioning, which actively saves files and lets users “rollback” to previous versions, and a new API, which lets developers easily create applications on top of ownCloud capabilities.

The latest version also allows users to view OpenDocument Format quickly and easily without having to download them. ownCloud 4 also includes an “experimental” feature for mounting of external file systems – including Dropbox, FTP, and Google Drive – which allows users to have all their file sync and share tools in a single ownCloud interface.

Other major improvements include drag  and drop file uploading, shared calendars, and file encryption.
