FlightFeather Social Networking Platform, Release 0.3.3

This development release of FlightFeather updates the dynamic loading of certain modules
during server startup.

FlightFeather's goal is "social networking for everyone". This means that anyone should have a chance to run a popular social networking site -- on minimal hardware, and without wasting bandwidth.

Release 0.3.3 modifies the way the FlightFeather server loads the configuration, protocol, session, and storage modules on startup. The actual loading process now takes place after all options have been parsed. If the "-c" or "--command" option is present, the server does not import these modules at all, since they are not required.

The new approach submits the maximum allowed text, including any URLs encountered along the way. In the future, there may be an option to enable the old behavior, as well as other, alternative ways to process submissions.... read more
