#Mastodon v2.7.3 is out 🎉
It's various fixes!
@Gargron Thanks for the ultra quick response! Yes I think that's what I mean. Previously when the user would click on "show more" the content of the page viewed would extend like with infinite scrolling whereas now the amount of content shown stays the same. I don't like infinite scrolling too in most cases, but in this case it's the better option. #Mastodon
#Mastodon v2.7.2 is out 🎉
It is a backport release, which means if you are running from the master branch, it's not for you.
@rysiek In German: Aufruf an alle #Fediverse Admins von Instanzen in der #EU. Die #CopyrightDirektive kommt und wir müssen unseren EU Parlamentariern zeigen, wie sehr europäische Internetseiten betroffen sind.
Bitte kontaktiert mich. Ich brauche nur euren Domainnamen, den EU Staat in dem die Seite gehostet wird und das grobe Thema der Instanz. Die ungefähre Nutzerzahl wäre hilfreich, ist aber nicht nötig.
Bitte helft mit, das ist wirklich wichtig!
Contactez-moi. Je n'ai besoin que du nom de domaine, du pays et de l'objectif général de l'instance. Un nombre approximatif d'utilisateur est le bienvenu, mais pas indispensable.
Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.
Please help. This is important.
I made up my mind: I will no longer attempt to contribute to or promote #mastodon .
After a few days I cannot get any specific information why one of my features was reverted : https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/9988
This is the last straw after:
➖ missing dev documentation
➖ paywalled -dev discord channel
➖ unclear requirements
➖ loads of bad communication.
I respect the maintainers for what they have created so far, but I will not waste any more of my time trying to help.
They went through the full review before merging. I was not asked to fix them, test in another browsers afterwards. No one contacted me. Just deleted a feature that I really wanted to see and decided to create for everyone.
Experimenting with #ActivityPub, I discover that after a few failed attempts to post to a #Mastodon instance (wrong signatures, things like that), Mastodon replies 500 (plus HTML) to POSTs. Using a fresh identity on the same instance solves the problem. Does it ring a bell for someone? (No, I didn't file a formal bug report, I need to collect more traces and log entiries first. This is a toot, not a technical report.)
Well, above RFC has been superceded by https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986 , but that says the same thing, that URLs should be delimited by angle brackets or double quotes or whitespace.
"It's ugly" isn't a good enough argument. Sorry. "It's not easy to use for some people" on the other hand is.
Even i, being not impaired or whatever, have trouble to differenciate links from plain text in standard themes.
Help test, improve and join the global social network!

Great set of new features in #Mastodon 2.7! Thanks @Gargron and all the other developers! My favorite one: group multiple hashtag searches in one column. Also great that Mastodon now includes an API for scheduled toot's. Hope a web UI to schedule toots and manage them will come in one of the next releases. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.7.0
