cartulary v0.7.9 Release NotesRelease Date: 2020-05-15 // over 2 years ago
🚀 The primary focus of this release is alternative s3 support for multimedia assets and a mastodon timeline feed.
🍱 There is a new section in the preferences page for S3 Asset Storage. If you fill out the details here, when you upload large assets like audio and video files, they will be uploaded to this bucket instead of your main bucket. This is mainly for taking advantage of lower cost S3 compatible storage providers like Wasabi who doesn't charge money for egress. If you are supporting a large infrastructure with lots of downloads, this could save you a ton of money.
Also, on the prefs page, in the Mastodon section, you can now subscribe to your Mastodon timeline (toots, mentions, etc.). You can also put in a text string as a filter and only posts containing that string will be included in your feed. This lets you bring a tamed/focused version of your timeline into your workflow.
🛠 Standard improvements and bug fixes as always.
Previous changes from v0.7.8
🚀 The primary focus of this release is the aggregator and feed item scanner. This isn't a "sexy" release at all. It's all, boring, under the hood stuff that just needed doing for a long time. The feed scanner is now asynchronous like the feed puller is. This will make things go much faster. There were also a lot of edge cases I've been noting in cart'ing articles that are now fixed.
