  • v0.6.0.1 Changes

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixes an issue with installing an running diaspora*, caused by a recent bundler update that fixes a bundler bug on which we depended on.

  • v0.6.0.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Warning: This release contains long migrations

    ๐Ÿš€ This diaspora* releases comes with a few database cleanup migrations and they could possible take a while. While you should always do that, it is especially important this time to make sure you run the migrations inside a detachable environment like screen or tmux. A interrupted SSH session could possibly harm your database. Also, please make a backup.

    The DB environment variable is gone

    ๐Ÿš€ With Bundler 1.10 supporting optional groups, we removed the DB environment variable. When updating to this release, please update ๐Ÿ‘ bundler and select the database support you want:

    gem install bundler
    bundle install --with mysql # For MySQL and MariaDB
    bundle install --with postgresql # For PostgreSQL

    ๐Ÿš€ For production setups we now additionally recommend adding the --deployment flag. If you set the DB environment variable anywhere, that's no longer necessary.

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Supported Ruby versions

    ๐Ÿš€ This release recommends using Ruby 2.3, while retaining Ruby 2.1 as an officially supported version. ๐Ÿ’Ž Ruby 2.0 is no longer officially supported.

    ๐Ÿ”ง Configuration changes

    0๏ธโƒฃ Please note that the default listen parameter for production setups got ๐Ÿ”„ changed. diaspora* will no longer listen on as it will now bind to an UNIX socket at unix:tmp/diaspora.sock. Please change your local diaspora.yml if necessary.

    ๐Ÿ‘ Redis namespace support dropped

    ๐Ÿš€ We dropped support for Redis namespaces in this release. If you previously set a custom namespace, please note that diaspora* will no longer use the ๐Ÿ”ง configured value. By default, Redis supports up to 8 databases which can be selected via the Redis URL in diaspora.yml. Please check the examples ๐Ÿ”ง provided in our configuration example file.

    Terms of Use design changes

    0๏ธโƒฃ With the port to Bootstrap 3, app/views/terms/default.haml has a new structure. If you have created a customised app/views/terms/terms.haml or app/views/terms/terms.erb file, you will need to edit those files to base your customisations on the new default.haml file.

    API authentication

    This release makes diaspora* a OpenID Connect provider. This means you can authenticate to third parties with your diaspora* account and let them act as your diaspora* account on your behalf. This feature is still considered in early development, we still expect edge cases and advanced ๐Ÿ”‹ features of the specificiation to not be handled correctly or be missing. But we expect a basic OpenID Connect compliant client to work. Please submit issues! We will also most likely still change the authorization scopes we offer and started with a very minimal set. ๐Ÿ“š Most work still required is on documentation as well as designing and implementing the data API for all of Diaspora's functionality. Contributions are very welcome, the hard work is done!

    Vines got replaced by Prosody

    ๐Ÿšš Due to many issues with Vines, we decided to remove Vines and offer a Prosody ๐Ÿ”ง example configuration instead. Check the wiki for more information on how to migrate to Prosody if you've been using Vines before.

    Sidekiq queue changes

    We've decreased the amount of sidekiq queues from 13 to 5 in PR #6950. โฌ†๏ธ The new queues are organized according to priority for the jobs they will process. When upgrading please make sure to โšก๏ธ empty the sidekiq queues before shutting down the server for an update.

    โšก๏ธ If you run your sidekiq with a custom queue configuration, please make sure to update that for the new queues.

    0๏ธโƒฃ The new queues are: urgent, high, medium, low, default.

    โฌ†๏ธ When you upgrade to the new version, some jobs may persist in the old queues. To move them to the default queue, so they're processed, run:

    bin/rake migrations:legacy_queues

    ๐Ÿ‘ท Note that this will retry all dead jobs, if you want to prevent that empty the dead queue first.

    ๐Ÿ‘ท The command will report queues that still have jobs and launch sidekiq process for that queues.
