NextCloud is the next thing after OwnCloud basically shut down.

OwnCloud (stylized ownCloud) is a suite of client-server software for creating file hosting services and using them. OwnCloud is functionally very similar to the widely used Dropbox, with the primary functional difference being that OwnCloud is free and open-source, and thereby allowing anyone to install and operate it without charge on a private server. It also supports extensions that allow it to work like Google Drive, with online document editing, calendar and contact synchronization, and more. Its openness eschews enforced quotas on storage space or the number of connected clients, instead having hard limits (like on storage space or number of users) defined only by the physical capabilities of the server.” – Wikipedia

Here some links clarifying the shutdown and  creation of the new fork NextCloud.

You should upgrade to NextCloud using the following guide, just like upgrading to a new OwnCloud version.

One thing that I am really looking forward to is the new WebRTC video conference integration Spreed.me.

“NEON is very similar to YAML. The main difference is that the NEON supports “entities” (so can be used e.g. to parse phpDoc annotations) and tab characters for indentation. NEON syntax is a little simpler and the parsing is faster.”

NEON offers PHP, Javascript and Python support.

RIPS is a static code analysis tool to automatically detect vulnerabilities in PHP applications.

By tokenizing and parsing all source code files RIPS is able to transform PHP source code into a program model and to detect sensitive sinks (potentially vulnerable functions) that can be tainted by user input (influenced by a malicious user) during the program flow.

Besides the structured output of found vulnerabilities RIPS also offers an integrated code audit framework for further manual analysis.
