Bugfix for communication problems in the develop branch released

A recent pull request to the “develop” branch introduced a nasty bug that blocked the background processing that is used to distribute messages, to import feeds and to do several more stuff.

Please update your system as soon as possible if you are running with the “develop” branch and the “worker” background processing isn’t enabled.

Friendica 3.4.2 released

Dear Federation,

we are happy to announce the availability of Friendica version 3.4.2, which is mainly a bug fix release for the “Lily of the valley“. Apart from fixing many small issues and improving the communication layers with the rest of the federation, we have started to implement ways to improve the accessibility of the supported themes. You can find a list of the access keys in the help files of your node. This is not done by now, but first steps on the way for better accessibility are taken. If you want to help us with it, either as coder or from the perspective as user who needs these features, please contact us in one of the developers or support forums. Your help would be much appreciated!

For a full list of changes, please see the CHANGELOG file.
