Fedora Update Notification
2014-10-31 00:58:19

Name        : owncloud
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 7.0.2
Release     : 4.fc21
URL         : http://owncloud.org
Summary     : Private file sync and share server
Description :
ownCloud gives you universal access to your files through a web interface or
WebDAV. It also provides a platform to easily view & sync your contacts,
calendars and bookmarks across all your devices and enables basic editing right
on the web. ownCloud is extendable via a simple but powerful API for
applications and plugins.

Update Information:

This update provides a few minor improvements to the ownCloud package. The check for new OC releases is now disabled - it's not really appropriate for a packaged app, as you'll be getting your updates through distribution channels. The check for whether .htaccess files are 'working' is similarly disabled, again it's not appropriate for a packaged webapp.

The database sub-packages no longer require the database server packages: it's fairly common to have your database on a different system from your webapps, so that requirement never really made sense. Now they just ensure the necessary packages for ownCloud to communicate with that type of database are installed.

The README file was updated, and the database subpackage descriptions improved.

A couple of unnecessary dependencies (php-gmp and php-pear-Net_Curl) were also dropped. As a note, you may want to keep php-gmp or install php-bcmath to replace it, though neither is strictly required. The crypto package ownCloud uses - phpseclib - will operate a lot faster with one of the native math libraries installed (if they're not available it falls back on pure PHP implementations of math operations, which are a lot slower).

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use
su -c 'yum update owncloud' at the command line.
