@dansup is truly amazing and you're truly amazing for developing it and continuing to pour yourself into making it better and better.
@tklk is truly amazing for providing managed hosting for instances so that those of us without the resources and know-how can take part.
Definitely an amazing community with amazing people.

The big federation update will include some Settings improvements:

- Accessibility Settings

- Invites

- Moved Disable/Delete Account to Security Settings

- Bulk manage relationships (followers/following)

- Email Settings (opt-in to email notifications)

- Developer Settings (Apps, Tokens)

- Improved Privacy Settings

and more!

All hosted instance have been upgraded with the most recent federation updates.

We are getting dangerously close to remote follows in Pixelfed πŸš€

⚠️ Federation Update ⚠️

We have been testing remote follows and will be releasing a huge update very soon.

You will be able to remote follow a supported account (Pixelfed, Pleroma, Mastodon) on another instance. You will see remote posts in your Home Timeline.

The Network Timeline and support for other ActivityPub implementations will follow.

(If you run an instance, please update to the latest commits)

Ok, upgrades are now complete. As loops are marked as experimental they have not been enabled by default, but if you would like to try them please let me know.

Starting an upgrade of instances to 0.9.4. I will do instances individually, and if any downtime is required it will be minimal. Watch here for completion notice.

@mastohost any plans for another year in review post like the one from last year?

Thanks to @tklk ! They updated the s3browser plugin today and our download site is back to 100%.

Previously we found a small bug with nested folders and it's been officially resolved and deployed to our server.

We'd like to thank @tklk again for their amazing work on the caddy s3browser plugin.

It really saved us a TON of pain.

We can now have our download site hosted on bulk cloud storage with the plugin in front as a simple file browser. It works great and is incredibly nice to work with.

It also helped reduce our costs!

Yes... it says s3 on the tin, we are NOT using s3 for our downloads. We use minio + Azure Blob Storage instead 😁

Full disclosure: for it to work 100% you need to custom build caddy to get the s3browser directive enabled in the config verifier. If you're interested we have notes. Feel free to reach out πŸ˜‰

The above is NOT tklk's fault, it's a byproduct of the way the caddyfile syntax is validated in the main caddy binary. There is a code update in caddy that was accepted and it should be smooth sailing upon the next caddy release.

@tklk just pushed an update to the Caddy s3browser plugin that FIXES https://dl.lollipopcloud.solutions
