Just a heads up. The time is slipping away and I would like to bring Zot6 to Hubzilla before the end of the year, but I'm now questioning if that's a realistic timeframe. There's much work to do and the conflicts between Zot6 and the way Hubzilla currently works are staggering to say the least. But here are a few things that may happen "soonish" and which *may* affect you...
1. The PHP minimum version is going to brought up to 7.0. Version 5.6 will be end of life on December 31st so this shouldn't surprise anybody, but I'm suggesting that this requirement is imminent. Please upgrade _now_ if you're running 5.6. Things will start to break if you don't. The longer you wait the more things will break.
2. Redmatrix backward compatibility will be terminated. I think everybody who wanted to migrate has done so, but in any event I'm pulling the plug on the compatibility code.
3. The way reshares work is going to be radically different. I'm hoping current reshared posts will still render, but if somebody comments or likes these in the future, those conversations may not federate. In ActivityStreams (on which Zot6 is based) and many other federated networks and projects, you can't actually add commentary on reshared content before posting. This is unfortunate because it puts everybody in the network at risk of copyright infringement and without a "fair-use" defense. I highly recommend everybody get in the habit of adding a comment to anything you reshare, even if it involves an extra step. The ass you save could be your own.
