Nextcloud is a owncloud fork created by many of their founders. It could be a replacement in the future for owncloud, because many owncloud developpers left to go to Nextcloud.

You will find the updated shar archive for Nextcloud first release

Comment 6 Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2016-06-16 10:25:09 UTC
I had a look at nextcloud's web site, and I could not see why people left owncloud or why one should switch...

Mathieu, we will see, but many owncloud core dev lefts, including the major founder Frank because ownCloud company think with business mode before user usages. 

This port is not a replacement for owncloud (it's not conflicting with it) but it permit users to have the chance to look at nextcloud themselves and choose it without integrating the app
