update time, is out

PP Pirate Praveen Public Seen by 221

Anyone volunteering to do the update? The biggest feature in this release is XMPP Chat. I hope our server can handle the increased load.

Final release is out as well. We need volunteers to pull the update.

Developers still don't recommend enabling chat.


Juan Santiago Mon 4 May 2015 2:39PM


Please put the link to that recommendation, it seems very strange to be included in the stable vercion and massively recomeinde not enabled, is one of the most desired features by many users.

Look at the end.

"diaspora* 0.5 includes a preview of the new chat feature, if you want to play with it, have a look at Vines. We do not generally recommend enabling this yet."

OK I think if the server can stand, might want to experiment with this, my opinion as a user: no problem if we suffer some momentary damages on behalf ofexperience :)

@balasankarchelamat thanks

I am also of the opinion we should try chat.

@balasankarchelamat @niteshajain did you folks try updating it yesterday?

It seems there isn't enough space on the disk to take dump backup of the database. @manukrishnantv and me are planning to setup mysql replication.. My internet is extremely flaky nowadays. Will try to do replication tonight (if I have a decent internet connection).

@balasankarchelamat Since all other sites in poddery server has been moved. You may remove the files and see if we can get enough space for backup now.

We can move the dumb and related files to Sooraj's Server, resize the hard disk and re-install everything.

Seems its better to go for database backup through replication after we run the 5.0 feature to remove old/inactive users/posts.

Ok. Will try it once I reach home (SSH is disabled in my college)
