Released #Mastodon v2.4.1rc1 (release candidate):
It includes some fixes, as well as trending hashtags.
@Gargron Great! Is the algorithm/methid used to determine trending tags documented somewhere?
@Gargron Thanks, interesting read!
Does it include usable search, btw? Search is awfully limited (at least in my pre-2.4 instance), you're only practically searching people you already follow. I'd love to search public conversations across servers without needing to use hash tags.
If not, when can we expect such a feature?
@rick_777 I don't think so, search is limited to hashtag only intentionally, to prevent user discovery as it is in twitter, I tried to find the discussion on github but I failed, if I do I'll send it your way :)
@Gargron surely you mean v2.5.0rc1
