Hatched on the evening of LibrePlanet 2012 (!!) and work-in-progress
ever since:

On June 8th, 2013 the developers of GNU social are pleased to announce
a merger with both the Free Social project and the StatusNet
project. Free Social developer and founder, Mikael Nordfeldth and GNU
social founder, Matt Lee will co-manage the project. StatusNet founder
and Federated Web pioneer Evan Prodromou, will remain active on the
project as an advisor and occasional contributor.

Effective immediately, GNU social now has a highly tested and
production-quality codebase, serving millions of social interactions
across the federated social web. We plan to continue to develop the
software, add new features and plan greater interoperability with
existing and future free software social platforms, including

A release (version 1.1.1) of GNU social is planned very shortly, which
will be the first release under the new project structure.
