Hey and just to clarify, because it came up, when I say sponsors, I do mean patrons on Patreon (and OpenCollective). There is nothing else and anyone can become one. The logos are tiers on Patreon too.

So we wanted to find a good time for a blog post about 3.0 so it would have a higher chance of reaching link aggregator frontpages but it looks like someone submitted the raw change log to HN and it鈥檚 on the frontage so I guess I can鈥檛 complain

Expect all of the release fanfare (blog posts, social media announcements) to come a bit later but the release is out there ready to be installed

Okay, I am finalizing the 3.0 release now

Maybe it shouldn't even be called comment. Label? Title? I don't know of any prior art where you can give names to generated links

I think Mastodon would likely benefit from having a FAQ about certain functions right within the interface instead of on an external documentation website, but that's task for 3.1

Do you know, just from looking, what the "Comment" field on the "Invite people" screen is for?

Just to get a feeling, should e-mail notifications for mentions, followers etc be on by default?

The "off" default was a way to cut e-mail delivery costs early on and I haven't really re-evaluated that decision since. It seems favoured towards always-on power users...

I think this should be the last release candidate before the stable version and I sincerely hope that I won't need to change anything else and could just re-tag it
