Well, the situation is that we are determined to push Hubzilla as our main publishing and communication tool instead of other social networks like Diaspora*. We are struggling with the timing and priorities of the Disroot platform as a whole, which means a lot of work that is not visible but is necessary to keep it alive.
At the moment, Hubzilla is still in test status though it's pretty functional, but you can test it by following the instructions mentioned by lugubris above.
Muppeth has been struggling big time with Hubzilla's Diaspora* addon for the last few months, which causes the instance to fall down after it has been activated. If we could solve that, I think we'd be pretty ready to put Hubzilla into production.
Additionally, we need to review the documentation we've written so far to find a way to make it less difficult for new users to get onboard to a platform with the amount of features Hubzilla has, because it's not user friendly right from the start.
So that's pretty much the situation.
