🎉 It is time! #Mastodon 3.3.0 is here! What's in it? Have a look:
@Mastodon a few other highlights:
- registration forms now have some rudimentary anti-spam measures baked in, which should get rid of most of the non-Mastodon-specific registration spam open and approval-based Mastodon instances get
- you can now select which replies to display in lists (any reply to people you follow, only to members of the list, or none)
- searching for a known private toot via URL is now much more reliable
- unread notification markers
- inconsistencies in followers between two Mastodon 3.3.0 instances get fixed automatically when processing follower-only posts
just see https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/#conformance
Most important : You need to support / bridge all "type"
I don't know. I have invited @Gargron to the official Conf 2019 and 2020 https://conf.activitypub.rocks/#home then we talked about the law https://www.w3.org/2020/12/11-social-minutes.html and now we have an assembly at #rC3 –
JUST COME BY SOMEWHEN …
with that out of the way, i thought it was commonly accepted that an application wouldn't have to handle the whole ActivityStreams 2.0 vocabulary. The meaning behind the various terms is often broadly-defined and does not always apply to microblogging, which Mastodon is for first and foremost
as for “Article” objects, they should display within Mastodon as the title of the article and a link to the full object. If that doesn't happen, it's not because we don't “support” Article objects but because there is another bug somewhere, either on your side on Mastodon's
this is NOT passive aggressive.
That was to say my friends and me are a bit disappointed that we (volunteers) try to organise about 4-5 ActivityPub events a year (Offdem FEB, Panel MAR/APR, Conf OCT and CCC DEC) since years and never anyone of mastodon appeared.
It was about to ask what we do wrong and what I can make better.
About “i thought it was commonly accepted”:
What gave you the impression if you do not speak to the other 50 software makers?
It was just the question, WHY nobody of you attended at least 1 of the last 40 Social CG meetings where we just want to specify the future and talk.
Next up in Social CG is
We are at rC3 still today and tomorrow and have to prepare the Spritely AMA! now,
open to anyone at 5PM
Also was in early contact with the EU Commissioners to fight for compulsory Interop but we are to weak alone.
And now the majors, that's much to handle.
are you jumping at Funkwhale's throat for not supporting Articles, Questions or Events? do you think it would make sense for Funkwhale to do so?
are you trying to claim i never reached out to other implementors or listened to them?
have you re-read any of your messages in this thread before claiming “this is NOT passive aggressive”? do you think any of those messages is going to make me any more likely to want to deal with you in the future?
I do not know, our events are free for everyone, I sponsored the Vlissingen event!
You would not have had any costs but a transport + nice beach appartement or room in the watertower. We cooked together.
Offdem was sponsored by refugees who shared their room with us.
Also the 2019 and 2020 confs were free, sponsored by several.
All was full very quickly which is why I tried in advance.
About mental bandwith: yes, this is _why_ we need more shoulders. We had silent rooms. 1/2
Well, spritely AMA! is running smoothly now, so
Yes, as a user:
Off course, I would expect from funkwhale as well that it does _not_ delete my content.
If people send me stuff, I just want to get it.
I describe the reasons and also solutions (Gestalt principles, a very small button opening a generic inbox is enough, wouldn't change the character of funkwhale) in one of my Talks for ActivityPub Conf, this one
