CPH officially 4.2 compatible

Our server-side software has now been fully upgraded and tested to deal with DSM 4.2. However, Synology deactived most features for 3rd-party-sources. We will contact Synology about these issues.

DSM 4.2 beta "announced"

Synology recently showed first information on its DSM 4.2 beta at an event in Taiwan.

We have made some changes to prepare the cphub-ecosystem for the upcoming news. Full integration will be made once we get our hands on the 4.2 software ourselves. Most notably, we are looking at "categories" shown inside package center.

  • packages cleanup - owncloud for instance.
    since the owncloud package is not maintained any more and the release has security issues i think it's better to pull it from this site. especially since synocommunity has it too but with a more active dev backing.
    imho not good to lead ppl into…
