ownCloud Client 1.2.0 beta2

Yesterday the ownCloud Client team released the ownCloud Client 1.2.0 beta 2. It includes a couple of improvements compared to beta 1 which was released before Christmas.

The release of version 1.2.0 is planned for the next week if things go smooth.

New Sync Protocol Dialog

New Sync Protocol Dialog

In particular, the the following improvements were added:

  • Proxy authentication fixed (Basic auth, NTLM will not yet work)
  • The status dialog now provides statistics on the last sync run (via the info button). It will tell in detail which files have been synced, added or deleted.
  • Client will go offline while the server in in maintenance mode (feature available with ownCoud master only)
  • Improved SSL Certificate acceptance
  • All sizes of the new icons are available.
  • Support files > 2 GB on all platforms for uploading.
  • Fixed some minor memory leaks and again saved some server requests through optimizations.
  • Improved error reporting to the user.
  • Remove legacy theming support.
  • We would appreciate if you give this release a test ride. Note that because it is beta you should make extra sure to have have backups of your data.

    there is one thing i beg you to add/improve: uploading “big files” from the client to a owncloud server which has a timeout/maxsize limit
    with my connection (256kbps upload) I usually get myself to be able to upload only small files to owncloud because my hosting provider has a timeout limit o 120 seconds, which at max upload time would be ~3.75mb max I can upload. It would be great having some kind of resume or chunks uploading, I know that for the web upload it’s technically possible do something like that (I don’t know if it’s already implemented in owncloud)

    Chunked uploading is planned, but will probably not make it into 1.2.0.

    What about the CPU hogging every 30 sec to scan synced folders? Why is this still necessarily with the file system notifier implemented? I was hoping the next beta would have fixed this, but unfortunately it still happens..

    A 32-bit version for the Mac OS X Client would be so useful.

      Hi, i also needed a 32bit Version for my mac, so i compiled it. I’m no expert, so it wasn’t that easy for me, but now i have a version which seems to work so far. And to save your time, you can try my 32bit Version of Owncloud: http://rapidshare.com/files/206786915/owncloud_32bit_mac.app
