CB Activity 6.0.0 Beta 3

Beta 3 is now available with a lot of great improvements and new features. Check out the details below!

Built in Notifications has finally arrived. I've implement ALL of the notifications provided by the system actions in CB Auto Actions in addition to quite a few more. Take a look at all the notifications available below.

As you can see the amount is substantial. Coming in at a whopping 37 built in notifications. In addition to this you can replace CB GroupJive Email/PM notifications with CB Activity notifications OR send both!

Another new feature to aid in self-moderation of content is post obscuring. When a post receives 3 reports it's marked Controversial. When a post receives 5 reports it's Obscured. When it receives 10 reports it's unpublished. All of this is customizable of course. The new obscuring functionality can be seen below.

There have been quite a few other improvements throughout the API and internal styling adjustments as well.

So what's next? CB Activity 6.0.0 RC1 is the plan. RC1 will contain the migration code from 5.0.0 to 6.0.0. I will do my upmost best to migrate all of your existing stream data as much as possible to the new database structures are configurations. If you are starting a fresh install then Beta 3 is considered feature complete and you are welcome to use it now instead of just for testing.

All core CB Activity database migrations are complete. Next up is migrating your menu items, profile activity tab, fields, and module streams into stored streams. This should cover most usages and migrate well enough, but it's likely there will be streams that are missed. Streams output by CB Auto Actions for example maybe difficult or impossible to safely migrate, but will attempt to do so.

CB Activity 6.0.0 RC1 migration code is progressing well. There are a few things that cannot be migrated. I will try to update you with any migration issues as they're discovered. Below are the current migration issues.

1. Global notifications no longer exist. Thus all notifications marked global will not have any recipients. It's possible to migrate these, but the queries to do so during migration would be far too heavy as notifications are now PUSH based and not PULL based. Meaning a row needs to be inserted to designate someone as a recipient.

2. Pinned activity, comments, and notifications no longer exist. So these will all drop down to where they belong based off their timestamp.

3. Suggestion icons for Actions are dependent on the old Emotes system which is migrated to Stickers. Since they're tied together these do not migrate well. Thus only the suggestion name will migrate and no icon will be migrated.

So far those are some notes to consider during migration. Additionally migration is being done in stages where it keeps track of which migration was completed. So should the install fail with a migration error it will resume migration where it left off. This is to deal with shared hosts that provide minimal resources to ensure your install migrates completely even if it requires an extra install attempt or 2.
