Salmon Now Supported by StatusNet 0.9

StatusNet just announced the release of StatusNet 0.9, which includes support for Salmon and related open specifications:

Support for the new distributed status update standard OStatus, based on PubSubHubbub,SalmonWebfinger, and Activity Streams.

Salmon is used for sending cross-network @replies (@mentions), per the specification.  This is a great start because it's simpler than the full reply-to-content flow; it's just sending people notifications when you mention them in your status updates, in a verifiable way.  We're working to get a separate endpoint put up on AppEngine soon in order to try out interop.
