Toot, toot!

Tusky has opened an Open Collective, where you can support the development, translations and support work!

We offer a $12/ year tier, which is the symbolic "if everyone who uses the app can pay $1/month".

As well as, a backer tier, and a sponsor tier!

It's time to make this official:

Hi, I'm @maloki, and I've joined the team.

My main focus will be answering you questions here, (check out our pinned posts), working on a FAQ, and figure out funding avenues.

I'll also work with the rest of the team @ConnyDuck , @charlag and other contributors, to move the project forward by listening to your feedback and trying to make your experience even better.

So, the full plan for #Tusky 8 is:
• fix them bugs
• fix more bugs
• refactor the shit out of that old codebase
• fix even more bugs
• animate avatars
• i guess some bugfixing won't hurt

Hey! For #Tusky I've decided to work on delegating instead of taking on work myself.

So, that said who wants to help us write a comprehensive FAQ?

We are really happy about everybody testing and helping to make better. Thank you so much, this open source project would not be possible without you!

If you encounter problems with any version, please send us a bug report! We prefer GitHub, but telling us here on Mastodon is also fine. A good bug report includes a detailed description and the instance, Android & Tusky version used. If you can include the steps how to reproduce the problem, its usually very easy for us to fix the issue.

We also have a more experimental "nightly" version that gets updated after each feature or bugfix we finish. It may contain untested code and quite a few bugs, use it at your own risk. It is a different app so it can be installed alongside stable . Nightly is on Google Play and there is a custom F-Droid for it

If you want to help testing , there are two options for you:

Prior to every major release, we make a beta version available for a few days. It contains all changes for the release and should already be quite stable. You can sign up for beta versions on Google Play:

Nice : @Tusky 6 drops support of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 (anyone ever used this one ?) and add support of TLS 1.3, which is supported by 👍😍

To all blind Android users: The #Tusky Mastodon client has been updated to version 6.0 and brings a big step forward in usability with TalkBack. Toots in most timelines are now single entities, and they have actions for replying, boosting, accessing profiles, links and other tapable items within a toot. This means that going from toot to toot only takes one swipe now instead of 5 to sometimes more than 10 in previous versions. Happy tooting!

6.0 beta has been released to the beta channel on Google Play. New features include custom hashtag tabs, filters synced with server, and list editing! Read the full changelog here:

Any opinions on this pull request? (changing the icon for CW on the compose screen) #tuskydev

Yes, #Tusky 5.2 is crashing when you have polls in your notifications.
1. We are aware of the issue, a fix for the crash is already in the Tusky nightly. You can use it until Tusky 6 is released. Tusky 6 beta will start in about a week.
2. The polls feature is not even a in a Mastodon release candidate yet, maybe wait before running it in production?
3. No Mastodon does not coordinate such breaking changes with app devs.

Just submitted my first expense report to #Tusky on Open Collective!
