Some of the most notable changes in Hubzilla 4.2
The Events and CalDAV frontends have been merged and streamlined. The Events and CalDAV apps have been deprecated in favour of the Calendar app which now comprehends both.Reply to comments
If the feature is enabled from the conversation tools (item drop down menu), it is now possible to directly reply to comments. The timeline view will remain flattened in the Hubzilla stream. In Friendica and Mastodon this kind of comments will appear beneath the commented comment.Administration
An admin option to store photo thumbnails on disk instead of DB has been implemented. This will reduce DB load and size. Also the DB upgrade tool has been improved to provide more info (source code of failed updates) in case of failure.Federation
Activitypub federation has been improved. We will now deal with profile changes on the fly with platforms that support that kind of messages. Also relaying of comments to activitypub servers has been improved. especially for Friendica and Mastodon which support comment relaying.Usability
It is now possibly to reset the profile photo to its default. Also the possibility to remove cover photos has been implemented.
