I am a G+ refugee newly signed up to Diaspora*. I’m climbing the learning curve and one thing that I am finding a problem with is the very small photo upload restriction of 4.2 mb. My main activity on any social platform is photography, sharing and discussing. Any picture I want to post I must go back to source and resize in order to upload successfully. Before I become too comfortable in this otherwise very interesting arena I am enquiring if there are plans for, and requesting, a significantly higher limit.
The next major release, 0.8.0.0, will introduce an automatic client-side resampling of image files larger than 4 MB, so that will make it behave like Google+.
Thank you for the information.
Can I ask what else you guys are planning for v 0.8.0.0??
What’s the ETA for this release?
There’s never an ETA for a major release; the release will be made when the relevant code has been implemented. Minor releases are made on a six-week rota, but major releases don’t follow a time-scale.
Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. In that case, I guess the question should be “How’s it going?” …
