Friendica 2022.02 released

We are very happy to announce the availability of the new stable release of Friendica “Siberian Iris” 2022.02. This is the first release containing the work of the Arabic translation team – thanks a lot for your work! Other highlights of the release are
  • The video tab was removed from the profile, in exchange Friendica profiles now have a media tab, showing postings that contain more then just text.
  • An addon to allow usage of WebDAV for the storage back-end has been added.

For a detailed overview of the changes, please have a look at the CHANGELOG.

How to Update


Please note: With this release the minimal PHP version that Friendica requires is PHP 7.3 and later. Known issues with PHP 8 are collected in the issue tracker at github, though Friendica seems to work fine with PHP 8 now.

Deprecation Warning: Some old and unmaintained addons have been removed from the core addon repository. These addons are: blogger, buffer, jappixmini, notimeline, xmpp.

Updating from old Friendica versions


If you are updating from an older version than the 2021.09 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version.

Pre-Update Procedures


Ensure that the last backup of your Friendica installation was done recently. We had no problems reported during the upgrade process from 2021.09 to the 2021.12 release candidate, so hopefully you will have a smooth transition.

Using Git


Updating from the git repositories should only involve a pull from the Friendica core repository and addons repository, regardless of the branch (stable or develop) you are using. Remember to update the dependencies with composer as well. So, assuming that you are on the stable branch, the commands to update your installation to the 2022.02 release would be
cd friendica
git pull
bin/composer.phar install --no-dev
cd addon
git pull
If you want to use a different branch then the stable one, you need to checkout the branch before your perform the git pull.

Pulling in the dependencies with composer will show some deprecation warning, we will be working on that in the upcoming release.

Using the Archive Files


If you had downloaded the source files in an archive file (tar.gz) please download the current version of the archive from friendica-full-2022.02.tar.gz (sha256) and friendica-addons 2022.02.tar.gz (sha256) 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-2022.02 archive), so you don’t have to worry about them.

Post Update Tasks


The database update should be applied automatically, but sometimes 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.

Please note, that some of the changes to the database structure will take some time to be applied, depending on the size of your Friendica database.

Known Issues

  • After the update please make sure that the directory vendor/ezyang/htmlpurifier/library/HTMLPurifier/DefinitionCache/Serializer is write-able by your web server.

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 2021.07 released

We are very happy to announce the availability of the new stable release of Friendica “Siberian Iris” 2021.07. This release contains 219 pull requests from ten contributors and the work of the translation teams. While fixing some problems identified, we have added some nice features
  • support for right-to-left languages was added,
  • the API was expanded to have Mastodon compatible endpoints and
  • an addon was added to support SAML services like keycloak for login.

For a detailed overview of the changes, please have a look at the CHANGELOG.

How to Update

Updating from old Friendica versions


If you are updating from an older version than the 2020.03 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version.

In that version we introduced views to the database and some node admins reported that they had to adjust their MariaDB configuration (table_definition_cache). Also setting pdo_emulate_prepares to true in the Friendica configuration might be nessessary.

Pre-Update Procedures


Ensure that the last backup of your Friendica installation was done recently. We had no problems reported during the upgrade process from 2021.04 to the 2021.06 release candidate, so hopefully you will have a smooth transition.

Please make sure to use Barracuda as MySQL DB file format for your Friendica database. Change your database settings before you proceed with the Friendica update. This change will take some time depending on the size of your database.

Using Git


Updating from the git repositories should only involve a pull from the Friendica core repository and addons repository, regardless of the branch (stable or develop) you are using. Remember to update the dependencies with composer as well.
cd friendica
git fetch
git checkout BRANCH
git pull
bin/composer.phar install --no-dev
cd addon
git fetch
git checkout BRANCH
git pull
Pulling in the dependencies with composer will show some deprecation warning, we will be working on that in the upcoming release.

Using the Archive Files


If you had downloaded the source files in an archive file (tar.gz) please download the current version of the archive (friendica-full-2021.07.tar.gz and friendica-addons 2021.07.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-2021.07 archive), so you don’t have to worry about them.

Post Update Tasks


The database update should be applied automatically, but sometimes 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.

Please note, that some of the changes to the database structure will take some time to be applied, depending on the size of your Friendica database.

Known Issues


Please note, that one of the dependencies of Friendica is currently incompatible with PHP 7.0. If you are still running that version of PHP, please have a look at this forum thread for a workaround.

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.

Known Problems


Please note, that one of the dependencies of Friendica is currently incompatible with PHP 7.0. If you are still running that version of PHP, please have a look at this forum thread for a workaround.

Was ich wirklich als kritische empfinde, dass speziell die User von Mastodon (auch wenn sie schon länger da einen Account haben), die Grenzen von #Mastodon als die Grenzen des #FeDiverse wahrnehmen.

Auf so etwas bin ich sogar selbst mal reingefallen, weil ich gedacht habe, dass man nur dann einen Account auf eine Liste setzen kann, wenn man ihm folgt.

Habe dann aber mit meinem #MissKey Account gelernt, dass das nur eine Restriktion von Mastodon ist.

Deshalb empfehle ich euch allen, probiert mal eine andere Plattform aus, einfach um eure Wahrnehmung von FeDiverse zu erweitern.

Hier gibt es ganz viele Instanzen bei unterschiedlichen Plattformen zu Auswahl -> https://fediverse.observer/
