Hey Users!CasaOS v0.4.4 Alpha Released now!

CasaOS - A simple, easy-to-use, elegant open-source Personal Cloud system, Community-based open source software focused on delivering simple home cloud experience around Docker ecosystem. The people involved are CasaOS users. That means CasaOS will always need contributions from community members just like you!

In order to continue to uphold the open source spirit of CasaOS, we have redeveloped the entire app store and application management in the CasaOS v0.4.4 version, adopted a new app store based on Git repositories, and brought native Docker feature support based on the application format based on docker compose, which made it easier for developers to launch the process and customize the features of the app store, and encouraged more developers to participate in the construction of CasaOS.

New App Store Features for CasaOS v0.4.4

Upgrade the old API-based app store to the new app store based directly on the Git repository

  • App submission process = Git PR process
  • Git syncs to local, eliminating the need for network connection when loading the app store, and improving the stability of app store loading.
  • Enabling the deployment of third-party app stores significantly improves the fulfillment of user-specific needs.
  • Application format based on docker compose

    • Standardized the application import and export format in the store, significantly simplifying the developers to customize and launch applications.
    • From the old app store with single English to the new app store with multilingual support, benefiting CasaOS users around the world.
    • Brought the support of native Docker features, such as: access to GPU, multi-container applications, etc.
    • Existing community standards replace CasaOS’s own appfile format

      • Reduce the barrier of learning to launch applications in the app store
      • Can directly import original docker compose without modification (No need Icon and description)

We are very happy that as of now, we have received two APP applications contributed by two developers - Memos and MineOS. Memos is a flash note APP that can help users think at any time and build their own knowledge system. MineOS is a Minecraft server management tool that allows users to easily host Java or Bedrock servers.

Happy New Year, CasaOS users!

While everyone is excited to kick off the new year, we want to disclose a hidden beta feature that was shipped in CasaOS since version 0.3.8, for advanced users who love to try new things.

This feature in CasaOS integrates with MergerFS, a union filesystem that allows you to combine multiple storage devices into a single virtual storage device. With this feature, you can easily access and manage the combined storage space of all your underlying devices through the /DATA directory.

Please note that this feature is currently in BETA and may still have some bugs or issues that need to be ironed out. There is also a risk of data loss and running apps resetting when using this feature, so please use caution and consider making a backup of your data before enabling it.

If you are ready to enable the feature, simply run the following commands after backing up your data and apps:

sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install mergerfs
[ -z /var/lib/casaos/files ] && sudo mv /DATA /var/lib/casaos/files
sudo rm -rvf /DATA && sudo mkdir /DATA
echo "EnableMergerFS=True" | sudo tee -a /etc/casaos/local-storage.conf
sudo systemctl restart casaos-local-storage.service

Once enabled, you can access the feature in the Storage Manager from the CasaOS dashboard.

We would love to get as much feedback as possible from users who are interested in trying out this preview feature, before we officially making it generally available for all users. If you give it a try, please let us know how it goes and share any feedback or suggestions you have at

Thank you for your continued support of CasaOS. We hope you enjoy this new feature and we look forward to hearing your thoughts on it.
