  • A little test

    2015-06-22T23:52:52Z via Dianara To: Public CC: Followers

    Hi there pumpers! o/


    This post is not a post! OK, it's a post... but it's not a 'note', it's an 'article' =)


    For all intents and purposes, they're the same, and you shouldn't see anything weird, either from the desktop clients, the mobile clients, or the web interface. If you see anything weird, your client displays some kind of error, or you can't reply to this post, or 'like' it, let me know. Thanks!



    P.S.- As a bonus test, there's a little "second title" which says "summary test", but you'll probably only see that from Dianara. Bonus points if your client displays that line ;)

    “OK, I need to implement that in Pumpa as well then :-)”

    I wouldn't worry too much about that. It's one of those mostly unknown things that no client shows, starting with the webUI, so we can't rely on it :p


    But for the future, it wouldn't hurt. A tool like Spigot might be able to make some use of this "summary" field =)

    pretty cool! yay for enhanced abilities on the pump!

    jrobb at 2015-06-23T12:15:03Z

    Eventually we might as well deprecate the client known as the Web UI and just use other clients. That may be the simplest developmental step forward.

    “Eventually we might as well deprecate the client known as the Web UI and just use other clients.”

    Why deprecate it instead of just making it better?

    As for using other clients... we can already do that, and I certainly recommend it to everyone all the time =)

  • Mageia 5 is out!!

    2015-06-20T18:00:44Z via Dianara To: Public , Mageia CC: Followers

    Version 5 of this great community-based GNU/linux distribution, centered around ease of use, was released yesterday! \o/

    What’s new in Mageia 5

    The main spotlight of Mageia 5 is the support of UEFI systems. If you are not familiar with the term, feel free to check our detailed article about it. In a few words, let’s say that most systems with recent hardware (3 years old or newer) are equipped with UEFI, so in order for our users to be able to install Mageia 5 easily on recent hardware, UEFI support was a must.

    [...]

    Of course this new release is not only about the installer changes; all packages have been updated, and we did a lot of work to ensure that all packages built fine against the new toolchain in Mageia 5.”

  • Change or set the e-mail for your Pump account

    2015-06-14T02:26:42Z via Dianara To: Public , Laura Arjona CC: Followers

    Pump.io accounts can have an associated e-mail address, for notifications and password recovery, even if that's not requested when creating the account.


    The web interface doesn't yet provide a way to add them later either, but identi.ca users have had e-mail addresses set since the migration from StatusNet to Pump.io, because those addresses were already configured in the StatusNet interface.


    So basically the problem is that users of other servers can't set an e-mail, and users of identi.ca can't change their e-mail to a new one. Until now =)


    Now the development version of Dianara supports setting your e-mail from the profile editor.


    E-mail activity notificacions are not the greatest thing in the world at the moment (they're more useful if people use titles in posts, actually!), but they can be useful, plus having the possibility of password recovery is always nice ;)


    This feature has not been very widely tested yet, but I've personally changed this account's e-mail, and set a new one in my other test account @microca.st, without any issues.


    Thanks to @Laura Arjona for encouraging me to look into this again! I hope it helps!


    Cheers! o/

    That doesn't matter, this feature works for everyone, and you get e-mail features as long as the server you use has an SMTP service configured =)

    >> sazius:

    “Oh, wow. I need to take a look at how to do this for Pumpa.”

    If you want I can give you some pointers directly. It basically boils down to creating a basic JSON with "nickname", "email" and "password" fields, and PUTting it (POST might work) to your /api/user/yourusername =)

  • What's coming with Dianara v1.3.1...

    2015-06-03T00:31:54Z via Dianara To: Public CC: Followers

    Hi there! o/


    Some highlights of what will be new in the upcoming version of my Pump.io client, Dianara 1.3.1, can be seen in the attached image:


    The "browse messages" option will appear in the drop-down menu that's available in any avatar, that is, in the Meanwhile activities, in all the posts and in all the comments. There's, sadly, a big catch: due to limitations in the information provided by the Pump API, you can only use this option with people in your same server. If you're jessie@microca.st, you can only browse posts by people @microca.st, etc. The feature loses a lot of usefulness at the moment due to this limitation, but still, it can be very useful when available.


    The new Privacy category in the settings (if you've never visited this dialog, you really should) has two options, to avoid sending follow/unfollow activities to your followers, and to avoid sending add/remove (from list) activities.

    This basically means that if you enable these options, only the person being followed, unfollowed, added, or removed will know about it, and nobody else. Keep in mind, however, that letting your followers receive this information helps the network grow!

    Besides privacy, enabling these options helps if you are about to start following or stop following a lot of people. This way you don't flood your followers feeds with a lot of "Jessie followed JohnDoe", and the like ;)


    The third item is explained in the link.


    Not much to tell about the fourth one... since v1.3.0, when typing @ you get a list of users to mention. Now, if you have, say, 3 contacts named "Albert" (and nothing else), you can know who's who by their ID's. As a bonus, the new popup is better positioned and sized =)


    As for the fifth one, up until now, if you pasted a url-looking text, like http://something, a proper HTML link was created, and all was fine. But if you pasted, say, from a text file, something like "check out this cool link: http://cool-link", nothing happened and the link was not really a link, and not clickable. Now, something like the latter case will work, as long as what you're pasting is plain text.

    If what you're pasting is rich text (say, from a web browser or a rich text editor), links should already be links, so that works as always ;)


    This post has turned out a lot longer than expected... here's the current changelog, in case you want a more complete list.

    You can find the development version of Dianara at https://gitlab.com/dianara/dianara-dev.

  • May 19th - Open Discussion Day

    2015-05-14T13:29:10Z via Dianara To: Public CC: Followers

    “Since 2006, on May 19th, we celebrate the Open Discussion Day, a day to promote open communication systems and protocols.

    Imagine an internet where it is only possible to send emails to people who used the same email provider as you, or only view websites that are hosted on your internet provider's servers. Naturally, these barriers go against the principles of the internet, and thankfully those days are long gone. Well… nearly.

    Many people still rely on instant messaging and other networks which lock them in, and prevent them from chatting with their friends on other networks (except where certain “business deals” are made). This is against the spirit of freedom of choice, and works in favor of the network providers, not you, the user.

    So imagine an IM network where you are able to choose where you want your account, and who your contacts are. You are in control, and you can even run your own server if you want to!

    Thankfully such networks exist, they are free to use, and they don't restrict you to one provider or one client. XMPP (formerly named Jabber) is an example of a popular open network and protocol.

    Here you can learn why it's important to use open systems. You can also read about how Jabber/XMPP works and how to use it.”


    http://opendiscussionday.org/ 



    This is a good day to avoid using closed systems such as WhatsApp or Skype, tell your friends why, and use only libre/federated systems. Even if it's just for the day.


    And if you're interested, we have a jabber/XMPP room for pump.io at pump.io@muc.jappix.com, and a general spanish language free-networks-related room at redeslibres@salas.mijabber.es ;)

    And this is all year long!

  • Dianara v1.3.0 is out!!

    2015-05-01T21:08:19Z via Dianara To: Public , XRevan86 , Filipe Saraiva , Mònica , gregor herrmann CC: Followers

    Hi there, pumpers!


    As planned, here's the latest in Dianara-land, v1.3.0.



    The main change since v1.2.5 has been the refactoring of the way the timelines are handled, which makes updates much faster and the interface a lot smoother. The number of unread posts is not reset on each update anymore. If you get more new posts than what you have configured to show in one page, you’ll be notified of how many more posts are pending to be received in the next update. The posts opened from the Meanwhile feed via the “+” button will now be able to load the comments much more often.

    Other smaller enhancements are a few new options in the Configuration dialog, such as the options to highlight comments made by you, or comments made by the author of a post and to choose the size of avatars, or more obvious “frames” for shared posts.

    There’s also an option to hide duplicated posts; that is, posts which were already visible in the timeline will not be shown again when someone shares them.

    One new feature that is not visible is nickname completion, a.k.a. “mentioning”. If you type ‘@‘ while composing a post, you’ll get a list of the people you follow. You can then type the first characters of a name and use the arrows and enter keys to select the contact you wish to mention. When creating a note, this will add that contact to the “To” list, which means they’ll get your post in their “direct messages” inbox. This was possible before, using the “To” and “Cc” menus, but now it’s simpler.

    Check the CHANGELOG for a more detailed list of changes.

    UEFI support – for real

    “Mageia’s developers have been hard at work during this release cycle to add UEFI support to our installer, while the QA contributors were thoroughly testing everything that they could on their hardware. We are now proud to announce that you can install Mageia on UEFI systems fairly easily, using either our Live media or the classical installer (except from the DualDVD which does not support UEFI).”

  • Testing Dianara v1.3.0-RC

    2015-04-19T17:06:37Z via Dianara To: Public CC: Followers

    I've been polishing Dianara-dev post-beta1 for a while, and now I've tagged it as RC in preparation for a release. Some broader testing would be great.


    The main change since v1.2.5 has been the refactoring of the way the timelines are handled, which makes updates much faster and the interface smoother.

    The INSTALL file has instructions on how to build it and dependencies.



    As usual, feedback is welcome!

    I hope to have a final release by May 1st.

    2015-03-25T15:20:16Z via Dianara To: Public , Bd Sn , a(n) person CC: Followers

    Due to the upcoming shutdown of the gitorious.org service, caused by the company behind it being acquired by GitLab, I've moved my Git repositories to their proposed gitlab.com service.


    This includes the Git repo for Dianara, which is now located at https://gitlab.com/dianara/dianara-dev.


    You can update your clone with this command in the dianara-dev directory:


    git remote set-url origin https://gitlab.com/dianara/dianara-dev.git


    ... and then just git pull as usual.


    Translators will probably need an account there for Pull Requests, but I'll be happy to just manually merge translation files sent by e-mail.


    The issue tracker is now here.


    Let me know if you find any issues with this move.

  • List of Pump users by language

    2015-03-18T18:01:05Z via Dianara To: Public CC: Followers

    I've created a new page under the Pump.io wiki, called Users by language.


    It's a manually crafted list of some Pump.io users grouped by the language they usually use in their posts. This is intended as a resource we can show new users to help them find people (and organizations) who post in their language.


    For now, I've added a few organizations I know, and a few users that gave their consent to be listed there. Anyone can help expanding this.


    You can add yourself to the list, if you have a github.com account, or ask someone to add you. If you leave a comment asking for it here, I'll add you when I get the chance ;)

    I'll just need you to tell me under which language you want to be, and a short description if you don't have anything written in the bio of your Pump profile.


    There are other means of searching for users, of course, such as this user search utility in a PPump service.


    If you know about some organization with a Pump.io account, such as the Free Software Foundation or April.org, you can add them to this list without asking, since they're public entities.

    If you use Dianara and your desktop environment is Xfce, you might have noticed that the "new post" notifications are useless when the notification style is set to "As system notifications" in Dianara's settings.


    It's due to this: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11706 


    In the meantime, just set the notification style to "own notifications". They're uglier, but at least you can read them ;)


    Thanks to @coyote for bringing this up =)

    I usually turn the notifications off as I've got so many weird things going on anyhow. I generally try to shut off notifications as much as possible...but that is just me.

    That's what the option is for =)

  • Dianara v1.3.0 Beta 1

    2015-03-06T02:26:55Z via Dianara To: Public CC: Followers

    Hi there! A few weeks ago I posted about Dianara-dev being usable again.

    Now that some of the rough edges have been polished, it's time for a beta.


    The main change since v1.2.5 has been the refactoring of the way the timelines are handled, which makes updates much faster. Also, the annoying "timeline goes to top on update" effect is mostly gone, though the timeline still moves around when updates are received, this needs fixing. The number of unread posts is not reset on each update anymore. If you get more new posts than what you have configured to show in one page, you'll be notified of how many more posts are pending to be received in the next update. The posts opened from the Meanwhile feed via the "+" button will now be able to load the comments much more often.


    Other smaller enhancements are a few new options in the Configuration dialog, such as the options to highlight comments made by you, or comments made by the author of a post and to choose the size of avatars, or more obvious "frames" for shared posts.


    There's also an option to hide duplicated posts; that is, posts which were already visible in the timeline will not be shown again when someone shares them.


    One new feature that is not visible is nickname completion, a.k.a. "mentioning". If you type '@' while composing a post, you'll get a list of the people you follow. You can then type the first characters of a name and use the arrows and enter keys to select the contact you wish to mention. When creating a note, this will add that contact to the "To" list, which means they'll get your post in their "direct messages" inbox. This was possible before, using the "To" and "Cc" menus, but now it's simpler =)


    Check the current CHANGELOG for a more detailed list of changes.


    If you didn't already use the development version of Dianara and wish to try it out, you can find it here: https://gitorious.org/dianara 


    If you prefer, here's a source code tarball of this beta release:

    The INSTALL file has instructions on how to build it and dependencies.


    Feedback is welcome!


    Cheers! o/

  • Swift 3.0 Beta 1 jabber/XMPP client is out!

    2015-02-28T02:57:33Z via Dianara To: Public CC: Followers

    Swift is a great jabber/XMPP client application for desktop systems, very easy to use and ideal for new users. Check it out! =)



    The first beta of the upcoming Swift 3.0 has been released

    “We’ve just released a Swift 3.0 beta. A fuller list of new features is available on the download page, but highlights include file transfer support, keyword highlighting, nuisance user blocking and seamless multi-person chats. We encourage everyone to get the new build and try it out, and tell us about any bugs they should come across as we work towards release candidates and a final release.”


    Changelog:


    These are the main changes since 2.0:

    • Chats can now be seamlessly upgraded to multi-person chats by either inviting someone via the ‘cog’ menu, or dragging them from the roster. This relies on server-side support with an appropriate chatroom (MUC) service.
    • Highlighting of keywords and messages from particular users can now be configured (Keyword Highlighting Blog post).
    • Full profile vcards (contact information etc.) are now supported and can be configured for the user and queried for contacts.
    • Simple Communication Blocking is now supported (subject to server support) to allow the blocking of nuisance users.
    • Swift can now transfer files via the ‘Jingle File Transfer’ protocol.
    • The status setter will now remember previously set statuses and will allow quick access to these when the user types part of a recently used status.
    • Tooltips for contacts in the roster now show their vcard profile information
    • The top of the roster window now shows a tooltip with your vcard profile information in
    • Chatrooms (MUCs) can now be bookmarked by right-clicking on their entry in the Recent Chats list, or from the ‘cog’ menu for any room you’re currently in.
    • The tooltips for MUC occupants now show their affiliation and role in the room (e.g. Administrator)
    • A new “Compact Roster” setting removes avatars and statuses from the roster.
    • Support for ‘right-to-left’ languages has been improved.
    • A small number of emoticons will be automatically rendered when receiving text, e.g. :), this can be disabled from the View menu.
    • Swift now distinguishes between contacts who have chosen to show as ‘away’ and those whose clients have noticed they’re idle (requires support in contacts' clients).
    • Typing search terms with the roster selected will start to search for contacts matching the terms (useful for users with large rosters).
    • An experimental ‘Trellis’ view for viewing several chats and rooms at once has been added. This is currently hidden; contact us if you’re interested in testing this feature.
    • And assorted smaller features and usability enhancements.

    Pues mira, sera uno más, pero se ha puesto las pilas y por fin: "Swift can now transfer files via the ‘Jingle File Transfer’ protocol."


    Lo probare con Conversations.

    “Looks nice, I can find any mention of OTR support, though.”


    I doubt that will be a priority for them. Swift is focused on being very simple to use to Jane and Joe User. I don't think something like OTR can fit in that xD
