Hubzilla-2.6 Released!

Mario Vavti
  
This release marks a huge leap forward in regard to bridges to other networks (mainly Diaspora and GNU-Social/Mastodon). Here is a summary of the most important changes:

  • Several fundamental changes to federation mechanisms with external services. This removed the need to provide separate server roles for communicating with separate networks. There is now one server role ("pro") and features peculiar to other server roles have all been consolidated. Notice: As a result of this change, 'techlevels' now apply to all server roles. If you find the interface and feature choices too simple for your tastes or needs, visit your account settings and change the tech level to something you're happy with.
  • Federation connectors completely reworked. Implemented Diaspora Version 2 federation protocol and performed major cleanup of the Diaspora protocol addon. GNU-Social and Mastodon compatibility was greatly increased and a "fetch conversations" feature added to try and locate missing contextual references and maintain conversations in posts from those networks. ActivityPub protocol connector is in progress.
  • Ability to re-order apps in the "app tray". Additional there were lots of changes in the app tray and navbar to increase general usability.
  • Improved file sharing mechanism.
  • Automatic language selection added to help, webpages, and wiki content for multi-lingual uses.
  • For new MySQL installations, we now default to UTF8MB4 and InnoDB tables so all text fields will be emoji and fully Asian language capable going forward.
  • Text search now includes webpages that you have permission to view. Tag and category searches now accept wildcards.
  • Syntax highlighting of code blocks moved to plugin. Without the plugin a normal code block will be presented.
  • Discovered some issues syncing photos and files to clones, which were fixed.
  • Added the ability to upload large files (such as videos) to conversations directly. It was memory limited previously.
  • Allow channels to accept moderated comments from unregistered members (like WordPress) if configured to do so.
  • CalDAV/CardDAV server moved from addon to core to facilitate closer integration with the native calendar and addressbook.
  • Upgrade to bootstrap-4 beta
  • Improved installer

For a detailed change log have a look here.

As always a big THANK YOU to all the translators and everybody who is helping to improve Hubzilla with each release.

If you installed Hubzilla via git and running master branch, you are only a git checkout 2.6RC away from the latest and greatest Hubzilla ever. Do not forget to also update git checkout 2.6RC the addons (yes i am looking at you nerd face).

Please help us test this RC (especially install, upgrade and core components) and provide feedback in form of bugreports or pull requests on issues you might find. Also testing of addons/plugins is highly appreciated.

You can follow the progress of RC testing in this wiki. Keep in mind that the wiki is not yet complete. Please PM me for write-access if desired.

For the changelog please have a look at the git history for now.

A condensed summary will follow with the version 2.6 release announcement.

Happy testing!

So far all known issues in RC branch have been ironed out. Let's hope it stays that way so we can release at the beginning of next week grinning face with smiling eyes

If your hub is on dev branch and you have the Diaspora addon with the Statistics addon enabled, update your hub (core and addons) ASAP.
See the related issue: https://github.com/redmatrix/hubzilla/issues/831

Bump.

Please UPDATE addons and core ASAP if on dev branch.
ZWE needs your help!

ZWE is a jazzcafe in Vienna, Austria which gives many young (and also not so young) musicians a platform to present their music. It would be a big loss if this unique place would have to close its doors forever.

Please support and reshare!

Hubzilla-2.4 Released!

Mario Vavti
  
After roughly two months of development we are proud to present Hubzilla 2.4
Here is a summary of the most notable changes:
  • More work on consolidation of caldav and carddav with the Hubzilla Addressbook and event system (ongoing). In the latest round we provided a way to use iCal as a base event federation format, and the ability to fetch/import vcards from remote profiles.
  • Simplify the 'allow-code' system privilege. Remove the per-account setting and only make it available per channel. Provide a way to implement HTML purification of Markdown content without breaking things like code snippets.
  • Zot 1.0 insecure communications are now refused. They have been blocked since January 1 and should only affect older Redmatrix/Hubzilla sites that have never upgraded as both repositories were patched in May 2016 (a year ago). The standard zot encryption algorithm is now AES256CTR. AES256CBC is now deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Crypto negotiation is now supported for all server roles.
  • Provide core support for client side E2EE for both posts and private mail. This is in addition to the web-based E2EE provided currently and allows easy integration with PGP and S/MIME (for example), and/or custom crypto techniques.
  • Enhanced envelope privacy. Private communications now have a reduced visibility envelope so rogue admins on any one destination site cannot see the entire privacy distribution (after decryption), but only recipients on their own site.
  • Emoji emoticons moved from core to plugin.
  • Bootstrap upgraded to version 4, several other core libraries (markdown, simplepie, etc.) also updated.
  • Various enhancments for the redbasic theme. New toplevel posts (not older than 12 hours) are now highlighted.
  • Profile tabs (aka channel apps) have been moved to the app tray.
  • Lots more work on Travis and automated test integration.
  • Channel import required two passes and this caused a number of other issues. This was fixed.
  • Widgets have been moved from a singe procedural file to an object based directory of discrete widgets.
  • Several postgres fixes.
  • Some more work on Mastodon compatibility (ongoing) and a wider range of GNU-Social server versions.

For a detailed change log have a look here.

@Christian Vogeley i am afraid you will need to purge the DB and recreate it to test those changes...
You might need to export it and import it again after recreating it if you don't want to do a plain reinstall...
