As the NSS-5.0.0 Project Release Manager, I’m happy to finally announce the Solid Server 5.0.0-beta.6 release!
The server is still a prototype, so it isn’t ready for sensitive data, but I’d like to draw your attention to it and ask if you can help test it.
Myself and the NSS-5.0.0 Project Contributors are looking to fix things that weren’t breaking in the 4.x series (i.e. regressions) before we release it, but it also contains so many important other fixes that more long-standing issues are something we would look at after the 5.0.0 release. Note, also, that some issues may be security fixes, it is possible though unlikely that apps have been relying on insecure behaviour, and so with tightened security, may break. If you find anything that used to work, that is now broken, please report it on github. If you report a regression the NSS-5.0.0 Project Contributors will try to address them before the final release of NSS-5.0.0.
You can get a full overview of the changes on the NSS - 5.0.0 project page.
You’ll find it on Github and NPM!
