⚠️ Mastodon 2.5.2 ⚠️


Security backport release. Please update as soon as possible.

@Mastodon wait but, I'm confused. What does "backport" mean? If I'm still on 2.5.0, do I need to upgrade to 2.5.2? I had these questions last backport but I can't remember, could we clarify in the release notes?

@ashfurrow @Mastodon Backport means it doesn't include everything that's been done towards 2.6.0, instead it only includes specific patches with minimal changes from the previous numbered version.


@ashfurrow @Mastodon It also means the patches are not on the master branch, therefore you need to specifically git fetch --tags and git checkout the right tag (this is in the instructions).

Yes, you need to update. The only case when you wouldn't need to update is if you were closely following the master branch (unstable).
