Sparkleshare – the open-source cloud storage (think Dropbox) alternative – has hit its first beta milestone.

Hylke Bons, Sparkleshare’s maintainer, had this to say about the release: –

“Aside from the usual bug fixes and behind the scenes work I mainly added features that increase productivity in the event logs. Not only does it look a lot prettier, each entry in an event log now has a clickable link for easy access to files. It refreshes automatically on new events as well. The Nautilus plugin now has the “Copy Web Link” context  menu item, which makes sharing links a whole lot easier.”



Aside from pushing out a beta release the team have finally produced some sterling user-friendly documentation on getting started with the application. Check out (no pun intended):
