I’m aware of a bug affecting the toot composer in Mastonaut: If you try to reply to a status while the composer is uploading an attachment, it might corrupt the upload, even if the icon shows it as “uploaded.” I’ve already identified the issue and it should be fixed in the next update. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Version 1.2.2 of Mastonaut is out now. It includes fixes to several bugs and crashes, plus some new features.
A big thanks for all the users who reached out with reports of this issue. It is very easy to miss obvious bugs like this when you’re the only tester. I do work to improve my testing checklist, but it’s a work in progress. Thank you for your understanding, and I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
If you were having issues logging in after the previous update, I do apologize. I’m happy to announce that the update that fixes this has been approved and should show up on the App Store anywhere from now to the next couple of hours.
If logging-in fails again, try a second time, because Mastonaut will now refresh its credentials after a failed login.
Mastonaut version 1.2 is out! This is a major update that includes two big features that have been requested a lot:
∙ Search: You can now search the mastodon world for accounts and hashtags right from Mastonaut (status search is coming soon). Access it from the “File > Search…” menu, or by hitting ⌘F.
∙ Polls: Vote on polls right from your timelines in Mastonaut, and compose your own from the toot composer.
Get it from the Mac App Store!
Version 1.1 of Mastonaut is out! Some of the new features include:
∙ Custom emoji picker: Select from the list of custom emoji in your instance when composing a toot! You can even search them.
∙ Mention auto-suggestion: Just start typing a mention using the @ character and Mastonaut will lookup users with that handle.
∙ Delete & Redraft: You can now re-draft your toots. Mastonaut will even reuse the original attachments so you don't have to upload them again.
