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

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

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!

@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 mastodon.social sometimes. Don't know if that's the case with this one, too. I don't have an account there to test it myself.
@Mastodon

@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 mastodon.social/about/more, mastodon.social 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.

@Mastodon
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.
mastodon.beerfactory.org is now running 2.5.0rc1.

@Mastodon Need <3

When is the stable release planned ?
