I'd like to solicit some community input for the (approaching) hubzilla release announcement. Consider this thread your chance to tell the world about hubzilla and what it means to you. Some or all of these comments may be republished.
Hubzilla es mi casa en Internet: puede ser ligera y nómada como la de un caracol o un castillo con fuertes murallas si necesito defenderme. Es como la Tardis del Doctor Who: más grande por dentro que por fuera. Tengo mi estafeta de correo, mis paǵinas personales que mis amigos o los viajeros pueden ver a través de los ventanales o una agenda para recordar las cosas, que me puedo llevar y traer en mi bolsillo...
También puedo quedarme en mi sala de estar, leyendo tranquilamente o departiendo en amables tertulias con amigos y vecinos. Una casa muy especial que se abre y se cierra con llaves invisibles, que, también como la Tardis permite viajar en el tiempo, y volver a ver los viejos álbumes de fotos o las cartas que uno ya había olvidado y que aquí nunca amarillean...
Hubzilla Is my house in Internet: it can be light and nomadic like the one of a snail or a castle with strong walls if I need to defend me. It is like the Tardis of the Doctor Who: bigger by inside that by out. I have my mail of post, my personal pages that my friends or the travellers can see through the windows or a diary to remember the things, that can carry me and bring in my pocket...
Also I can remain me in my living room, reading quietly or chatting in kind social gatherings with friends and neighbours. A very special house that opens and closes with invisible keys, that, also like the Tardis allows to travel in the time, and see again the old albums of photos or the letters that one already had forgotten and that here never are yellowish...
Thanks for this great piece of code. Proud supporter, even if the monthly donation is small.
Hubzilla is incredibly unique in what it is and what it does. You could compare it to Diaspora, but you could just as easily compare it to Drupal or OwnCloud - but it is more than any of those things. You can use it to make anything you want - a personal website, a forum, or even a full-blown social network. Every server running Hubzilla is capable of federation, meaning that users on one server can easily connect to users on another - this means that they can send messages, like each other's posts, follow each other, share files and events, and much more.
It has expansive privacy controls and cloud storage baked into the core platform. The best part? You can extend it to do almost anything. It's a CMS that comes with cloud storage and privacy controls, and can also be used to deploy a federated communication network.
regardless of the server.
Hubzilla is the new internet!
The combination of BBCode for beginners and Comanche for advanced users makes it easy to modify, customize, or completely rebuild the way that your pages are presented to the world. Like Drupal or Joomla, Hubzilla is an incredibly extensible CMS for those comfortable with CSS and the concepts of blocks, layouts, and menus. It is also observer aware, making it very easy to create a page that customizes itself based on the person that is viewing it. With a single page, you can show people that are not logged into Hubzilla information about the project while people that are logged in would see your blog or forum.
To top it all off, with the magic of Zot and the built-in nomadic identity that it enables, I can clone my account on multiple servers so that in the event of my main server suffering an outage, I only lose access to the files that I store. My blogs, forums, social connections and personal content is still available by simply logging into one of the servers where I have cloned myself.
Hubzilla is the promise of Zombocom made flesh.
Sharing and communicating online should not be any different, but the truth is that today these are almost completely the opposite of how they should be. Hubzilla brings some sanity back into our electronic lives and stands as a beacon of hope for the internet, enabling freedom and security using standard, tested web technology that is available now. Its robust communication protocol and platform architecture provide web developers the tools to build a broad spectrum of apps and web services with built-in authentication and decentralized access control.
Build websites for your organization with Hubzilla and get single sign on and identity aware content for free, using a platform that respects the permissions of site visitors. Power your next web app with Hubzilla so you can focus on the features that make it unique, getting decentralized secure data transfer and authentication services for free. Join the community of Hubzilla developers and be a part of something amazing.
Then, only after I had been on friendica for a few hours, reading old posts by mike macgirvin, did I finally find out about redmatrix. Finally! Something with an end goal that wasn't ANTI-something. It was an end goal on its own! This was what I was looking for all these years. It's still very far from what I would consider a 1.0. Even Hubzilla with all its improvements over Redmatrix is not what I would consider a 1.0. The versions are based on chronology, which is great for people unfamiliar with a project, but it hides progress and doesn't convey completeness very well. Hubzilla has a long way to go before it is what it wants to be. But unlike all the other projects, every single last one of them, hubzilla is the only one that actually wants to be something, instead of trying to be the anti-something.
Another thing that I like about hubzilla is the community. It reminds me of the old BBS and FIDOnet communities I used to belong to. The diversity is great, the people actually use the brains they have and try to contemplate things instead of regurgitating them. It reminds me of web communities I haven't seen since the old slashdot, long before it was overtaken by corporations. It's pretty night-and-day compared to the BoobTube/IdiotBox that the internet has become. It's currently crossing a very harsh badlands with no company. A chasm between the failed direction that major corporations have led everyone, and the promised land that the internet was heading towards before it was hijacked. Even if hubzilla is a long way from the awesomeness it will one day become, it has the heart and soul to get there, and a really good idea of where 'there' is. It is alone in that regard.
Hubzilla 1.0 code freeze
Hubzilla 1.0 code freeze
Code freeze begins for hubzilla 1.0 release. No new features added after this time and until release. Bug fixes only. All checkins (with the exception of daily version updates) must be thoroughly tested. We encourage all checkins after code freeze to also be reviewed by at least one other developer. Bug fixes which touch lots of code should probably wait until after release; depending on their severity and impact.

A familiar theme in the collapse of historical empires has been the rise-up of the conquered, and their infiltrations to the heart of the conquering empire to exact revenge. The affluent cities of the empire are no longer affluent at this point, the environment has been destroyed, and the ruling cities of the empire are not only unhealthy but unsafe places to be as they continue to be attacked and revenge extracted.
The empire is not able to defend itself at this point as the populace has been fed large doses of entertainment and vice under the pretext of offering a better life and they no longer have any loyalty to the state. They have been conditioned to seek pleasure and to not confront power, nor promote the values of independent thought, initiative, and bravery which created the empire. At this stage these qualities are deemed to be rebellious and must be crushed.
Following these revenge attacks on the heart of the empire, the cities of the empire are often abandoned. The people return to a much more pastoral existence and the quest is for increasingly smaller centers of power to help ensure survival; a return to tribal and ethnic alliances which existed prior to the subjugation of empire. The state is now gone and its power vanishes with it.
parabéns Fred pelo niver e, como disse Sérgio , continue espalhando a semente do conhecimento livre ... no Brasil e no mundo

Announce: Hubzilla beta3
This is the third and final beta before the final release of version 1 of Hubzilla, our open source decentralised identity and community platform. We've taken decentralisation and community websites to a whole new level.
If you are interested in building online community websites or services, please check out what we have to offer. Our communities and their members can all connect together easily and share nearly anything simply and privately with anybody in the larger global space, yet each member and each community has control over their own privacy. Our cutting-edge nomadic identity, cross-domain access control, and global single sign-on brings you a range of enhanced community building services unlike anything you've experienced before.

1) don't set size, ie int(11), just write "integer" (or int for short). also applies to smallint(6), just write 'smallint'
2) there is no such thing as 'mediumtext', just put 'text'. (only three character types in postgres, character varying (mysql 'varchar', character 'char', and text)
these items cause errors on install.
What a long, strange trip it's been.
In the original implementation (if I recall correctly), approval used a slightly different form or form structure and now the approval is combined and integral with the regular form. As a consequence, we're getting permissions settings from the form and these are over-riding the perms we assign "if approving and no permissions have been set". Since the comment permissions aren't pre-populated on the form and the popup is "usually" submitted before viewing any other form elements, they remain disabled. We can't really calculate the union of the role permissions and any that have been manually set because some of these involve inheritance. We also can't pre-populate the form with the new-connection settings because those permissions will be installed even if we don't approve the connection.
I'm not sure of the best resolution of this issue; just thinking out loud while I try to come up with a plan.
I did a lot of testing and did not find any issues... There might be edgecases though...
You sure it's related? I don't remember anyone having issues before people started migrating their channels from redmatrix to hubzilla...
Anyway i won't have a chance to have a deeper look into it upcoming week...

In a collaboration that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago, Microsoft – the purveyor of the mainstream and proprietary Windows OS – has partnered with Red Hat, the champion of an enterprise-class iteration of Linux.
IMHO Digital Ocean is the coolest at the moment.
I started using Red Hat GNU/Linux in the 1990's and was a loyal supporter for years, Fedora, CentOS, RHEL. But I've lost interest, their business is centered around upgrades. From my experience paying a monthly fee for RHEL is a perpetual stuck-in-the-past and ends up in inevitable mandatory re-provisioning of servers. On my Linux machines I've been running mainline Linux kernel with Debian unstable userland. I've the mind of not ever installing RH on anything.
Back in about 2000 I had tried to install Debian but could never get X to function, but that was resolved by the time Squeeze was released.
I once tried Corel Linux, but couldn't get the networking to function.
Have played with Arch, Gentoo, YDL (on an old iBook), and numerous other distros (DSL, Vector, Canaima, etc.) at various times, sometimes just briefly in liveCD systems or Vboxes to play.
Have toyed with HaikuOS and GNU/Herd (only in Vbox).
Debian is definitley home now, and I don't see that changing any time soon or late.
@Mike Macgirvin Any view on the launch date of Hubzilla 1.0?
I see a white square box in my toolbar when the bookmarking panel is not shown, and when I click it, it changes to the three interconnected circles of the Hubzilla icon. From reading and checking my files I do not understand why there is a square box.
