    0.6 (2018-03-04)
    - Basic activity stream for listening and favorites (#23)
    - Switched to django-channels and daphne for serving HTTP and websocket (#34)
    Upgrades notes
    This version contains breaking changes in the way funkwhale is deployed,
    please read the notes carefully.
    Instance timeline
    A new "Activity" page is now available from the sidebar, where you can
    browse your instance activity. At the moment, this includes other users
    favorites and listening, but more activity types will be implemented in the
    Internally, we implemented those events by following the Activity Stream
    specification, which will help us to be compatible with other networks
    in the long-term.
    A new settings page has been added to control the visibility of your activity.
    By default, your activity will be browsable by anyone on your instance,
    but you can switch to a full private mode where nothing is shared.
    The setting form is available in your profile.
    Switch from gunicorn to daphne
    This release include an important change in the way we serve the HTTP API.
    To prepare for new realtime features and enable websocket support in Funkwhale,
    we are now using django-channels and daphne to serve HTTP and websocket traffic.
    This replaces gunicorn and the switch should be easy assuming you
    follow the upgrade process described bellow.
    If you are using docker, please remove the command instruction inside the
    api service, as the up-to-date command is now included directly in the image
    as the default entry point:
    .. code-block:: yaml
          restart: unless-stopped
          image: funkwhale/funkwhale:${FUNKWHALE_VERSION:-latest}
          command: ./compose/django/  # You can remove this line
    On non docker setups, you'll have to update the [Service] block of your
    funkwhale-server systemd unit file to launch the application server using daphne instead of gunicorn.
    The new configuration should be similar to this:
    .. code-block:: ini
        # adapt this depending on the path of your funkwhale installation
        ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/daphne -b ${FUNKWHALE_API_IP} -p ${FUNKWHALE_API_PORT} config.asgi:application
    Ensure you update funkwhale's dependencies as usual to install the required
    On both docker and non-docker setup, you'll also have to update your nginx
    configuration for websocket support. Ensure you have the following blocks
    included in your virtualhost file:
    .. code-block:: txt
        map $http_upgrade $connection_upgrade {
            default upgrade;
            ''      close;
        server {
            proxy_http_version 1.1;
            proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header Connection $connection_upgrade;
    Remember to reload your nginx server after the edit.

    About page:
    There is a brand new about page on instances (/about), and instance
    owner can now provide a name, a short and a long description for their instance via the admin (/api/admin/dynamic_preferences/globalpreferencemodel/).
    Basic transcoding is now available to/from the following formats : ogg and mp3.
    *This is still an alpha feature at the moment, please report any bug.*
    This relies internally on FFMPEG and can put some load on your server.
    It's definitely recommended you setup some caching for the transcoded files
    at your webserver level. Check the the exemple nginx file at deploy/nginx.conf
    for an implementation.
    On the frontend, usage of transcoding should be transparent in the player.
    Music Requests:
    This release includes a new feature, music requests, which allows users
    to request music they'd like to see imported.
    Admins can browse those requests and mark them as completed when
    an import is made.
