Socialhome v0.6.0 released

.. and we have a logo!

The logo, which highlights both the "home" and the "grid" aspects of #Socialhome, is contributed by lightone - thanks a million! <3 The documentation brand page has an SVG and various PNG's for download.

Major changes

Other user facing changes in this release include the following:

  • Profile "All content" streams now include the shares the profile has done.
  • Unknown shared content shared by a contact is now fetched from remote if it doesn't exist locally.
  • Modified timestamp is now used for when federating out to remote nodes. This makes edits federate more reliably to some remote platforms that support edits.
  • Fixed various OpenGraph related issues.
  • Fixed poor performance of loading replies. This regression happened when introducing replies for shares.

Additionally there are some #API changes and various other tweaks mainly interesting for people who run or would like to customize a Socialhome server. See the full changelog.

For developers, #Docker files now exist to do development without installing all the complex components required. See the developing with Docker documentation.

Release statistics

A total of 7 authors contributed to this #release which is a record so far! #Hacktoberfest helped bring in a few authors. A total of 77 commits were made, affecting 134 files, contributing to 3864 insertions and 865 deletions.

Up next

Right now there is still a lot of work being done on the #VueJS streams, thanks to Christophe Henry again for working on these. Current estimate is that the next release will replace the current #jQuery based streams with the new rewritten ones. This will introduce some feature updates, but mostly it will be an internal rewrite. What it does do though is open up more features to be added. The current streams code is not going to be expanded expect to fix bugs.

Once the Vue streams work is shipped, we're looking to work on long standing missing features like tag streams and limited visibility content. #ActivityPub federation will likely be pushed to early months of 2018.

What is Socialhome?

Socialhome is best described as a #federated personal profile with social networking functionality. Users can create rich content using Markdown. All content can be pinned to the user profile and all content will federate to contacts in the federated social web. Currently #federation happens using the #Diaspora protocol. Federating using existing protocols means Socialhome users can interact with tens of thousands of other users.

Please check the official site for more information about features. Naturally, the official site is a Socialhome profile itself.
