Cloudron v0.140.0 released

By Girish on Monday, May 15th 2017

We are happy to announce the release of Cloudron 0.140.0.

For those unaware, Cloudron is a platform that makes it easy to run apps on your server and keep them up-to-date.

HTTP/2 support

HTTP/2 is a major revision of the HTTP network protocol that is supported by most modern browsers. For the Cloudron, one main feature of HTTP/2 that really speeds things up is it's ability to load the entire website with a single TCP connection. This greatly reduces the number of round trips required to setup multiple TCP connections.

If you navigate to any app on the Cloudron and open up developer tools, you will see that it loads up using HTTP/2 (indicated by h2 in the protocol column below).

Appstore Submission Guidelines

The Cloudron Store is a mechanism to share your app with others who use Cloudron. Currently, to ensure that apps are maintained, secure and well supported there are some restrictions imposed on apps submitted to the Cloudron Store. See 292 and 327 for an in-depth discussion.

The following criteria must be met before submitting an app for review:

  • You must be willing to relocate your app packaging code to the Cloudron Git Repo.

  • Contributed apps must have browser tests. You can see the various app repos to get an idea on how to write these tests. The Cloudron team can help you write the tests.

  • For all practical purposes, you are the maintainer of the app and Cloudron team will not commit to the repo directly. Any changes will be submitted as Merge Requests.

  • You agree that the Cloudron team can take over the responsibility of progressing the app further if you become unresponsive (48 hours), lose interest, lack time etc. Please send us an email if your priorities change.

  • You must sign the Cloudron CLA.

As a token of our appreciation, 3rd party app authors can use the Cloudron for personal or business use for free.
