    ๐Ÿ”„ Changes

    โž• Added

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Support for DHT invites as generated by manyverse (#1246) added by @staltz. This is the headline feature of this release. DHT invites are one of the more promising ways to improve the onboarding experience without a pub. We invite everyone to test this feature out. Invite a friend or family member to SSB, tell us how it worked, we're eager to iterate on this!
    • ๐Ÿ‘‰ Show last user activity on profile pages and mouse-over popups (#1289, #1290)
    • โž• Add Dracula-inspired theme (#1294, #1295)
    • ๐ŸŽ You can now type /profile into the search bar to visit your own profile. (#1287) Handy in combination with using Ctrl+L (Cmd+L on MacOS) to activate the search bar.
    • When using Ctrl/Cmd+Return to publish a message, a second push of Ctrl/Cmd+Return will now confirm the publication, while Esc or simply Return (without the Ctrl/Cmd modifier) will cancel the publish and return back to editing the message (#1286)

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixed

    • Non-square profile pictures are no longer stretched/compressed in the private messages tab (#1276)
    • โšก๏ธ Update locales, especially French (#1275, #1278, #1280, #1281)
