    Except it isn't open source. It's open core. The best stuff is closed, and only available in the close source, paid version.

        Hopefully they have fixed the problems with the contact app. Also, does anybody know how to upgrade to 9.0 from 8.2.2? All documentation is 404 at the moment.

          Have been using Syncthing for the past couple of months. Incredibly nice, still needs some polish but works very well and uses much less resources than the dropbox client. The way it works is pretty cool aswell. I don't need all those extra features that ownCloud has, i just want file synchronization that is reliable and easy to use.

            I also find Syncthing speeds to be much faster than owncloud since it does not rely on any central server (even though that central server is under your control). All clients use their upload bandwidth like in BitTorrent.

              I didn't know it wasn't fully open source. We use Kloudspeaker at our company. It's not as fancy or feature rich but it does the job and is near perfect for what we need.

                If you rely on contacts/calendar/tasks syncing to Android - do not upgrade! Everything is incredibly broken. I had to downgrade to 8.2.3 and use contacts and calendar from 'owncloudarchive' GitHub repo. Now everything is great, and I intend to leave it this way for some time.

                  Darn, do you have some examples or bug tracker entries? I really hoped they would fix this mess with the 9er release.

                    Meanwhile, a really useful/killer feature is still pending from being implemented since 2013 ... https://github.com/owncloud/client/issues/230
