Version 3 of ownCloud, the open source, cloud application that enables you to run your own cloud server from your computer, has been released. This comes roughly 47 days before the launch of a commercial entity that would provide products and services for ownCloud.
“Major new features in this release include: the ownCloud application store, which allows users to take advantage of the extensibility of ownCloud; and, directly edit text file capabilities from a browser.”
“The calendar application has a completely new and more user-friendly web interface. New features include repeating events and automatic time zone detection. The interface of the contacts application is also improved with thumbnails of contact photos, and the option to export address books or single contacts as .vcf files. It is now possible to create, edit or delete multiple address books in ownCloud.”
