XMPP based tickets and merge requests with SàT - Salut à Toi
Lot of work has been done in the past months, letting little time to talk about the novelties. Let's have a look at the most recent one. For Salut à Toi development, we don't want to use proprietary or centralized software and we use Mercurial, so we have been reluctant to use current popular platforms. With the recent improvments of our SàT pubs...

Certificate has expired. So I am guessing that is why no directory is displayed?

futures of distributions
Seems Debian is talking about why they are unable to package whole categories of modern software, such as anything using npm. It's good they're having a conversation about that, and I want to give a broader perspective. Lars Wirzenius's blog post about it explains the problem well from the Debian perspective. In short: The granularity at which soft...
  
What is Debian all about, really? Or: friction, packaging complex applications
This weekend, those interested in Debian development have been having a discussion on the debian-devel mailing list about "What can Debian do to provide complex applications to its users?". I'm commenting on that in my blog rather than the mailing list, since this got a bit too long to be usefully done in an email. directhex's recent blog post "Pac...
  
Do the little things matter? | DanielPocock.com

In a widely shared video, US Admiral McRaven addressing University of Texas at Austin's Class of 2014 chooses to deliver a simple message: make your bed every day. A highlight of this talk is the quote The little things in life matter. If you can't do the little things right, you'll never be able to do the big things right. In the world of free sof...
  
Build a decentralized internet with Libervia (Salut à Toi) ! - Salut à Toi
Among many novelties of Salut à Toi in the next release (0.7), one has specially big potential: Libervia (the web frontend) is now a web framework. "Yeah but there already so many of them!" I 've heard you saying… That is true, but this one is decentralized. So, Libervia is based on SàT and XMPP in order to help you to build or rebuild the web....

Loss of connection function with my hub

  
@Hubzilla Support Forum+

For some reason, I am no longer able to make connections. When I enter a connection or click the connection button, I just get a blank page.

Here is an excerpt from the log, which to my untrained eye, looks like it is making a connection, but at the bottom is the word deleted. Can anyone see what is going on here?
from the log:

Oh and deleted only means something if it is set to 1 or true
  
After hitting the connection button, it takes me to a white page. Several other activities do the same thing, so I will take a look at the .htconfig.php to see if I can get any more info.
Thank you for the advice.
  
And yes, addons were updated when core was.

The end of Flash

  
The long-awaited end of Flash has come a little closer with this announcement https://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2017/07/adobe-flash-update.html from Adobe. "Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats."
