Awesome: ownCloud has over 8 million users and more updates ;-)
We've got a blog on owncloud.org about how ownCloud has grown to 8 million users. I've updated owncloud.org/history with new statistics, too, see the top of the page. Exciting, right? If you're curious about the origin of the numbers, I gave some hints in the blog but let me just say that it helps that we know of some HUGE deployments in India and Brazil, over a million each and more of such government related deployments are in the works. Of course, home user growth and use at providers has also been impressive and ownCloud, Inc. has served over 300 customers now, that isn't insignificant either.
I had a blast last weekend at SCALE and am looking forward to FOSDEM this weekend, if you're there, come say hi! Will blog about SCALE and ownCloud later.
More ownCloud updates:
- we're working on improving the upgrade process
- We're also overhauling activities and notifications
- ownCloud mail is making progress
And I personally created some fuzz when I told people not to use distribution-provided ownCloud packages.
I also have tips on how to get started with ownCloud app development, the quick and dirty way and how to patch ownCloud easily and quickly with features and fixes from github.
Shoot if you have comments or questions!
