Mastodon v2.5.0rc1 (release candidate) is out for those who want to test it:

Improvements include:

- New profiles
- MySpace Top 8 (not really)
- Remote interactions for toots
- Federation relays
- Admin dashboard
- tootctl command-line interface
- and more! :toot:

@Mastodon Speaking of MySpace features, this is the one that finally lets me pick a song to autoplay when someone clicks on my profile right?

@Mastodon please add some feature to hide the left menu thing

@Mastodon ooh, I'm definitely going go try and run this now. Definitely running into the problem of finding content. The remote favouriting is also nice!

@Mastodon the install went well, federation servers won't switch from disabled to enabled though.

@Mastodon For real tho, what's the deal with the void space in the area under the pic? Makes it so you have to go to the three dots to expand a toot if it's a pic with no text

@Mastodon Probably better explained as a blogroll than a top 8

@matilde Yeah but I was referencing what everyone was comparing it to.

@gargron I really didn't like it until I realised it was a blogroll lol

@Mastodon didn't see a big release coming so soon. Congratulations on your amazing work!

@lenincel @Mastodon

"Remote interactions?"

That's what I want to know...

@Mastodon The public profile endorsements is a nice idea

@Mastodon How is it possible to test the new release? I've never worked with Gitub yet

@Paddy_93_VfB I believe @Gargron installs RC builds on sometimes. Don't know if that's the case with this one, too. I don't have an account there to test it myself.

@marco Thank you Marco for your answer. We will see if there will be some changes on the website in the future @Gargron @Mastodon

@Paddy_93_VfB According to, runs 4.5RC1 (see version number near the bottom), so you should see the accessibility changes @Gargron put in recently if you use it directly, not through Pinafore.

Wow! Awesome work everyone! Will it be possible to whitelist instances either on the relays themselves or on your instance?

@Mastodon Very excited about the new features! 😁 Thank you for working on these!

@Mastodon Done. is now running 2.5.0rc1.

@Mastodon Need <3

When is the stable release planned ?
