Hubzilla 4.0 - What's New?
Hubzilla 4.0RC has been released today. I guess it's time for an (incomplete) overview about what will be new in Hubzilla version 4.0:
Hubzilla 4.0 will be able to communicate via the zot6 protocol. This means that we can natively communicate with Zap and Osada.
Photo Cache Addon
This addon provides the Photo Cache App which can be enabled per channel and increases anonymity in the world wide web. Photos from outside the zot network will be cached at your Hub.
Queueworker Addon (admin)
This addon implements an enhanced queue worker. This is only important for site admins. The addon is still marked experimental but does a pretty good job already. It has the potential to improve queue handling especially for big sites.
Enhanced Gallery Addon
This addon provides the Gallery App. The new version of the Gallery App now has vastly extended functionality: photos in posts/comments can now be viewed in the gallery directly from the stream, if a toplevel post has images at the beginning (before any text) the images will be converted to an album.
Deprecated Addon Settings
Addon settings have been deprecated in favor of the per app settings. This work has started in Hubzilla version 3.8 and has now been finalized.
Software Stack (admin)
Hubzilla 4.0 will require PHP7. Version 7.2 or 7.3 are recommended.
Uncountable usability improvements and bug fixes.
