We are an ethical alternative to Instagram.

Keeping people informed, safe and supported are important core values for Pixelfed.

We will be rolling out labels to posts related to COVID-19.

Release time!

This one adds the ability to set image descriptions (good practice for accessibility reasons, but also handy to comment on each photo), and there are translation improvements (plurals are now supported, so languages like Russian with more nuanced plurals can translate things correctly).

Thank you for the crash reports, a regression caused by a change in the last release was fixed!

We succeeded to connect a #Pixelfed account using 2fa with #Fedilab.
It will also bring fixes for stories. We should be able to offer these enhancements in the next release.

We need the assistance of the #Fedilab community to help with some decision making!

So below, we have a multiple choice poll..

Thanks for taking the time to help developing Fedilab, and boosts are always appreciated 鈽猴笍

What do you mainly use Fedilab for?

Added Polls support, they will federate and are similar to Mastodon polls with the exception of notifications when the poll closes.

New release of #Fedilab in the beta channel (2.37.0-beta-2)

We want to remind users of our new automated moderation tools.

I am saddened by the news regarding tom79, it highlights a real problem in the fediverse. So far, our interactions with the community have been great though, so thank you for that 鉂わ笍

The Laravel framework just released a security update, we recommend all Pixelfed instances update to the latest commits!

Pixelfed Labs will be sunset on June 14, 2021.

We learned a lot from Labs experiments and will focus our efforts on mobile apps, improving federation and core feature development.

Groups (aka Circles) is the next major feature in development.

It's been on our roadmap for awhile, and will be released in v0.11

Text only posts don't have to be boring!

You will be able to customize your post background, formatting and more!

The new Pixelfed website is much nicer and will include a federated forum, new documentation site, translation platform and improved instance picker.

It was a lot of work to built everything from scratch, but we'll be able to provide a better experience across the Pixelfed ecosystem for admins, developers and users!

Available soon.

Happy New Year 馃コ

We are preparing to release the next version that includes several new features and improvements.

The mobile app is almost ready for primetime, and we'll be shipping the Android version first (via @fdroidorg)!

PS - We have been working on text-only posts support 馃槈
