After participating in the Federated Social Web event in Berlin last year, we were eager to get down to work with federation. Its time has reached.
We believe this is a key feature in Social Stream. As a social network framework, every website built using Social Stream, such as the ViSH, would be able to speak to each other
This new version of Social Stream comes with federation capabilities. It is close to comply with FSW SWAT0 use case.
This release also uses Rails Engine Decorators, a new gem for extending engine’s models, controllers and helpers. Be aware that old ActiveSupport hooks have been removed, so you will have to migrate your code to generators. See the Rails Engine Decorators’ README for details.
As always, do not forget to run
rake social_stream:migrations:update on upgrade!
