We are wrapping up the summer contributions to Friendica for the upcoming release and are very happy to announce the availability of the release candidate in the git repositories.
If you want to help to find some bugs and rough edges in the 2020.09 release, now is the perfect moment to switch from the
development branch to the freshly created
2020.09-rc branch. To do so please run
git fetch git checkout 2020.09-rc git pull bin/composer.phar install --no-dev
in the root directory of your Friendica and the
addon directory. The command to update the dependencies (
composer) is only necessary in the Friendica root directory.
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.
Should the DB update process get 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 above.
