Finally, a new version!

This one has lots of stuff in it. I'm not going to be adding any more features now before the 1.0 release, and just focus on bugfixing and some minor polish for a little while.

New in this version

* Search! The top-right button now opens a menu with a few options, one of them being search. It currently works just the same as search in the web interface.
* Username autocomplete. When you type an @ on the posting screen, the app will now auto-suggest users for you to address.
* Deleting toots now works.
* Links to toots and users pasted in toots are now opened in Toot instead of opening in the web interface.

* Pinned toots are now shown on user timelines.
* Profile metadata is also shown in the user profile.
* Finally, user profiles are now no longer abbreviated.
* Bug fixes for some of the view transitions and timeline positions jumping around when navigating around.
* Super bouns: Once Mastodon 2.6.0 is out, and your instance has updated, you will be able to read timelines both forwards and backwards in time! The “Load more” cell will show you which way it is intending to load toots.

@tootapp omg loading in both directions is gonna be a game changer

@tootapp This is all super awesome stuff! Thanks for the update!

@tootapp Really looking forward to the new "Load more" cells! Thank you!

@tootapp Thank you for an awesome update! Short bit of testing and it looks like the timeline doesn’t jump around anymore when swiping back from viewing a toot/media. Yay.

@tootapp could please have swipe to open the toot like in Tweetbot?

@tootapp This is so nice! I noticed the difference immediately.

@tootapp is there a way for an iOS app to see if another app has registered a URI like you can on android? I wish twitter and YouTube links would open in their respective apps instead of the web view

@tootapp or really in general I’d rather links be opened with the system browser rather than an embedded web view

@tootapp Oh, neat! I didn't notice that. Although the 'open in safari' label could be a little more clear.

@fluffy @tootapp For app probing into what they shouldn't reasons, there is no way to ask the OS if it can open an arbitrary URL, with some very narrow exceptions. However, apps can try opening a URL in an app, and fall back to Safari if they can't.

Swift:
```
UIApplication.shared.openURL(url, options: [.universalLinksOnly: true]) { done in
if !done { UIApplication.shared.openURL(url) }
}
```

@Admin Same way as the web interface does it: It actually just calls search with the @-string, and shows you the accounts returned.

@ashfurrow Does your interest in @tootapp mean we can expect a speedy update to 2.6.0 on m.t? Can’t wait to read from oldest to newest. 🙏

@sentience @tootapp it’s always a balance between my desire to be on the latest and the risk of being the first admin to run into some problem. I wait at least a week after the release before planning my upgrade – this has helped m.t avoid a few problems and, on occasion when I’ve upgraded right away, I’ve sometimes run into serious problems that put the stability of the instance at risk. Thanks for understanding!
