@Seline Engel Falls Du die beiden Netzwerke vergleichen möchtest, empfehle ich auch ein #NeuHier mit dem anderen Account.

Ergebnis könnte sein, dass Du feststellst, dass Du neben #Friendica und #Diaspora auch noch andere Netzwerke erreichst - wie beispielsweise #Mastodon.

Dort gibt es ebenso interessante Leute kennen zu lernen und siehst mehr von der #Föderation.

 
Our #Friendica instance workers are now monitored via #Prometheus and alerts sent to the admin team if things are not working as intended, to stop the same problems from appearing again 💪

Yay! Embarrasing for an association that promotes #federation, our main #social platform #Friendica had a break down in federation that was not realized for some time.

The issue was something related to #MySQL configuration which for some unknown reason became incompatible a few weeks ago. Furious hours long debug sessions finally made things work better and we're federating again ✌

Extremely sorry about that for any users of this server.

Mastodon will demnächst das OStatus Protokoll rausschmeissen


Mastodon will demnächst das OStatus Protokoll rausschmeissen. Das wird die Netzwerke GNU Social und PostActiv betreffen. Diese werden dann für Mastodon nicht mehr erreichbar sein. Für GNU Social wird allerdings bereits ein Plugin entwickelt.

Ehrlich gesagt verstehe ich diese Eile nicht, Vor allem nicht von einem Netzwerk wie Mastodon, dass sich selbst nicht an das Protokoll Activitiy Pub hält, das es selbst mitentworfen hat.

Glücklicherweise geht Friendica da einen anderen Weg. Hier wird OStatus noch unterstützt. Ebenso das Diaspora Protokoll.

Es ist eine Sache, neuen Code für ein neues Protokoll zu entwickeln. Aber eine andere Sache bereits bestehenden Code rauszuschmeissen und damit andere Netzwerke auszuschließen.

The end is near: Mastodon plans to drop OStatus support

Sieht für mich so aus, als ob der Parser von #Friendica nach Kleinschreibung konvertiert und der Webserver von Heise damit nicht klar kommt. :-o
Ich hatte IMHO schon die korrekte URL eingegeben.

A bot is currently running on the #Mastodon network that regularly create accounts on different instances and spams comments and mentions. It's annoying, for sure, but I realize that I prefer cleaning the spam on my #Friendica node than blocking ad-running accounts on #Twitter.

Happy Birthday - 9 Jahre Friendica

Vor 9 Jahren, am 1. Juli fiel der Startschuss (git push) für das großartige dezentrale soziale Netzwerk Friendica. Seither arbeiten Entwickler, Tester, Übersetzer und eine sehr tolle Community an der Weiterentwicklung dieser Plattform, deren Philosophie es unter anderem ist, mit so vielen anderen Plattformen wie möglich kommunizieren zu können.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch und vielen Dank für dieses tolle Projekt und eure Arbeit. 🌻🚀🎊🎉

Happy Birthday Friendica!

Many thanks to all who have contributed, the active and the alumni! <3 No matter how big the contribution was.

Ich hab hier einen ganz seltsamen #Fehler. In den Posts von Bettina Schwarz (ebenfalls squeet.me) werden mir im Stream seit 2 Tagen keine Bilder mehr angezeigt. Vorher ging es wie bei allen anderen Profilen auch. Wenn ich bei squeet.me eingeloggt bin und das Profil oder einen Beitrag von ihr aufrufen will, bekomme ich die Fehlermeldung:

Fehler: Umleitungsfehler
Beim Verbinden mit squeet.me trat ein Fehler auf.
Dieses Problem kann manchmal auftreten, wenn Cookies deaktiviert oder abgelehnt werden.

Wenn ich mich auslogge kann ich das Profil aufrufen. Aber dann sehe ich natürlich nur die öffentlichen Beiträge.

Friendica 2019.06 Released


Thanks everyone who contributed, be it directly by committing patches or new features, doing translations or reporting issues.





And now, we happily announce the availability of Friendica 2019.06. It contains many bug fixes, enhancements of existing functionality and some new features. The most noteworthy changes since the last release in March are:
  • Added native two-factor authentication
  • Added reshare counts
  • Added mascot to error pages (thanks to @lostinlight)
  • Moved Friendica private message and contact request to ActivityPub
You can find a complete overview of the changes in the CHANGELOG file.

How to Update

Updating from old Friendica versions


If you are updating from an older version than the 2018.09 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version as there were several important changes in that version.

Please further note, that since Friendica 3.6 we use Composer for dependency management. If you are updating via git, you have to remember to update the dependencies as well.

Pre-Update Procedures


Ensure that the last backup of your Friendica installation was done recently. While testing, we did not encounter problems, but better safe than sorry.

With this release we raised the hard requirements to PHP 7. If you are still using PHP 5.6+, this version won’t work anymore on your system and we urge you to upgrade to PHP 7.1 at least.

Using Git


Updating from the git repositories should only involve a pull from the Friendica core repository and addons repository. Remember to also update the dependencies with composer.
cd friendica
git pull
bin/composer.phar install
cd addon
git pull
If you want to switch the branch (e.g. if you helped testing the RC code) please do so after the pull using git checkout master (or develop).

Be aware that the .htaccess file was removed from the git repository in the 2019.01 version. You might have to restore yours from a backup (if you have done local changes) or from the .htaccess-dist if you had not done it before.

Using the Archive Files


If you had downloaded the source files in an archive file (zip or tar.gz) please download the current version of the archive (friendica-full-2019.06.zip and friendica-addons-2019.06.tar.gz) and unpack it on your local computer.

As many files got deleted or moved around, please upload the unpacked files to a new directory on your server (say friendica_new) and copy over your existing configuration (config/local.config.php and config/addon.config.php) and .htaccess files. Afterwards rename your current Friendica directory (e.g. friendica) to friendica_old and friendica_new to friendica.

The files of the dependencies are included in the archive (make sure you are using the friendica-full-2019.06 archive), so you don’t have to worry about them.

Please be aware of the changes in the configuration format in the 2019.03 version. You should follow the instructions linked from your admin panel as soon as possible to move your configuration to the new location.

Post Update Tasks


The database update should be applied automatically, but maybe it gets stuck. If you encounter this, please initiate the DB update manually from the command line by running the script
bin/console dbstructure update
from the base of your Friendica installation. If the output contains any error message, please let us know using the channels mentioned below.

How to Contribute


If you want to contribute to the project, you don’t need to have coding experience. There are a number of tasks listed in the issue tracker with the label “Junior Jobs” we think are good for new contributors. But you are by no means limited to these – if you find a solution to a problem (even a new one) please make a pull request at github or let us know in the development forum.

Contribution to Friendica is also not limited to coding. Any contribution to the documentation, the translation or advertisement materials is welcome or reporting a problem. You don’t need to deal with Git(Hub) or Transifex if you don’t like to. Just get in touch with us and we will get the materials to the appropriate places.

Thanks everyone who helped making this release possible and have fun!

Friendica 2019.06 #Released

Thanks everyone who contributed, be it directly by committing patches or new features, doing translations or reporting issues.

The Tazmans Flax-lily in a word cloud from the titles of the commit messages

And now, we happily announce the availability of #Friendica 2019.06. It contains many bug fixes, enhancements of existing functionality and some new features. The most noteworthy changes since the last release in March are:

Added native two-factor authentication
Added reshare counts
Added mascot to error pages (thanks to @lostinlight)
Moved Friendica private message and contact request to ActivityPub

You can find a complete overview of the changes in the CHANGELOG file.
How to Update
Updating from old Friendica versions

If you are updating from an older version than the 2018.09 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version as there were several important changes in that version.

Please further note, that since Friendica 3.6 we use Composer for dependency management. If you are updating via git, you have to remember to update the dependencies as well.
Pre-Update Procedures

Ensure that the last backup of your Friendica installation was done recently. While testing, we did not encounter problems, but better safe than sorry.

With this release we raised the hard requirements to PHP 7. If you are still using PHP 5.6+, this version won't work anymore on your system and we urge you to upgrade to PHP 7.1 at least.
Using Git

Updating from the git repositories should only involve a pull from the Friendica core repository and addons repository. Remember to also update the dependencies with composer.

cd friendica
git pull
bin/composer.phar install
cd addon
git pull

If you want to switch the branch (e.g. if you helped testing the RC code) please do so after the pull using git checkout master (or develop).

Be aware that the .htaccess file was removed from the git repository in the 2019.01 version. You might have to restore yours from a backup (if you have done local changes) or from the .htaccess-dist if you had not done it before.
Using the Archive Files

If you had downloaded the source files in an archive file (zip or tar.gz) please download the current version of the archive (friendica-full-2019.06.zip and friendica-addons-2019.06.tar.gz) and unpack it on your local computer.

As many files got deleted or moved around, please upload the unpacked files to a new directory on your server (say friendica_new) and copy over your existing configuration (config/local.config.php and config/addon.config.php) and .htaccess files. Afterwards rename your current Friendica directory (e.g. friendica) to friendica_old and friendica_new to friendica.

The files of the dependencies are included in the archive (make sure you are using the friendica-full-2019.06 archive), so you don’t have to worry about them.

Please be aware of the changes in the configuration format in the 2019.03 version. You should follow the instructions linked from your admin panel as soon as possible to move your configuration to the new location.
Post Update Tasks

The database update should be applied automatically, but maybe it gets stuck. If you encounter this, please initiate the DB update manually from the command line by running the script

bin/console dbstructure update

from the base of your Friendica installation. If the output contains any error message, please let us know using the channels mentioned below.
How to Contribute

If you want to contribute to the project, you don’t need to have coding experience. There are a number of tasks listed in the issue tracker with the label “Junior Jobs” we think are good for new contributors. But you are by no means limited to these – if you find a solution to a problem (even a new one) please make a pull request at github or let us know in the development forum.

Contribution to Friendica is also not limited to coding. Any contribution to the documentation, the translation or advertisement materials is welcome or reporting a problem. You don’t need to deal with Git(Hub) or Transifex if you don’t like to. Just get in touch with us and we will get the materials to the appropriate places.

Nun sind alle #socialmedia Plattformen auf den neuen Server umgezogen. #mastodon #diaspora #friendica #pixelfed ... es lebt! :-)

 
NOTE: "direct messages" visibility was changed in #Friendica and #Hubzilla. Now when you send a "private" DM from Mastodon to these two networks, message's visibility in those networks will be limited (yay!)

Please, remember, that #OStatus networks - GNU Social, postActiv, as well as any malicious servers - will still show your DMs from Mastodon as public. 🔓

LUGS aller Länder, vereinigt Eurch!


Vor dem Urlaub mal eine kleine Idee:

Im Zuge der LPD-Organisation und unserer LUG ist mir aufgefallen, dass die meissten LUGs (aka #LUG / #LINUX-User-Group ) nur so ihr eigenes Ding machen. Von #Öffentlichkeitsarbeit keine Spur. Außerdem klagen so ziemlich alle über mangelnden Zulauf oder das sie in der Region nicht wahrgenommen werden.

Nachdem ich nun hunderte von Webseiten gesehen habe, liegt es meiner Meinung nach an fehlender Aussenwirkung.

Leute! Ihr wollt freie Software? Dann benutzt die doch auch! Niemand braucht: G, A, FB, ETC, PP!

Wenn Ihr nicht selber hosten könnt oder wollt, holt euch halt ein Konto auf einem der vielen FREIEN Server. Einfach Anmelden, Einrichten und Leute einladen/abonnieren.

Benutzt #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #Mastodon oder was anderes aus dem #Fediverse ...

Vor allem aber, #vernetzt_euch !

Nehmt doch einmal Kontakt zu euren Nachbar-LUGs auf und sprecht mal mit denen. Da ist viel verschenktes Potential drin um Sachen zu machen und mehr Publikum zu erreichen.

Fangt an mit einem Eintrag auf: https://linux-events.org/SL_LUGs ;-)

Einen Anfang macht die BS-LUG in ein paar Wochen: https://bs-lug.de/start#regionaltreffen_der_lugs /
Braunschweiger Linux-User-Group
Braunschweiger Linux-User-Group
bs-lug@hubzilla.fkn-systems.de
Braunschweiger Linux-User-Group


Wenn Ihr nun Interesse habt, schaut da mal rein und meldet Euch.

Oder diskutiert hier mit mir. ;-)

Und nicht vergessen: Weiterteilen! :-D Allen eine schöne Urlaubszeit!

 
Nun haben sich alle social media Plattformen doch auf einem eigenen physischen Server eingerichtet. Bei einer Spitzenload von 10-15 war der vServer doch irgendwann am Ende, nun ist es der neue Rechner fast gelangweilt dagegen. #friendica #mastodon #diaspora

 
76 user on my #Friendica server, I think not one of them is active and more than 75% didn't post anything at all.

forum.friendi.ca and XMPP support chat down


Hello,
the hoster of one of my servers seems to have severe problems. A lot of servers aren't reachable.
One of the affected machines is the host of the VPS our Friendica Community Forums are running on. Unfortunately, the XMPP support chat is running on that VPS too.

I'm sorry. Stay tuned for more information.

Theme Developers

Are there theme developers out there that want to create additional themes for Friendica?

It would be great to have some more crowdpower on that topic. If you are interested, just visit https://github.com/friendica/friendica

It's the first I've heard of this project and only from Paul's perspective. If it's how he tells it, it's worrisome, really. I have to read it slowly and contrast other sources when I can.

A critical FAQ about EUnomia

The #EU is currently funding a research with about 2.45 mio €, that includes a research within and about the #fediverse.

The project is called #EUnomia. Their overall goal as they claim is to counter #fakenews.

Their partner are involved within the sector of mass #surveilience, law enfocments, military and social control.

I've done some research about them and their partners, what I found is highly concerning me.

To make these information accesable for others, I've wrote a critical FAQ.

Deliciously light, with creamy theme inside.
Will not #meltdown like chocolate (and other unreliable things). Set up your node now.

Warum ich Friendica benutze – Freie Soziale Netzwerke
Bei den freien sozialen Netzwerken gibt es eine Reihe von Auswahlmöglichkeiten wie zum Beispiel Friendica, Hubzilla, Mastodon, Pleroma, Diaspora, GNU Social usw. Ich habe mir alle diese Plattformen angeschaut, einen Podcast https://besser.demkontinuum.de/category/das-fediversum/ produziert und entschieden habe ich mich für Friendica https://friendi.ca/ aus folgenden Gründen
