v2.8.1 is out 🎉

Among numerous fixes, there are very nice changes around how sensitive media is displayed

Some people have reported problems installing Mastodon v2.8.1 due to gem compilation.

This and a few other small bugs have been fixed in v2.8.2:


Wait, you don't get to say if they're "Very nice changes"!

You make the changes.

We'll tell you if they're 'very nice' or not.

@Mastodon Unfortunately we can't upgrade our instance because the blurhash gem won't build here. Waiting for a solution...

@Mastodon has been upgraded.


I'm having problems upgrading from 2.8.0 to 2.8.1.

Lots of 500s when trying to load the front-end (no old toots work).

Have had to downgrade to fix. Using Docker if that helps...

@ij I have not seen that one before. What are you upgrading from?

@Gargron - 2.8.1 - ruby is:

mastodon@mastodon:~/live$ ruby -v
ruby 2.5.1p57 (2018-03-29 revision 63029) [x86_64-linux]

@Thib @Mastodon @Gargron - thanks... this seems to work... precompiling assets is now at "[6/6] Cleaning modules..." (for some time now, but at least it does not fail anymore...)
