twtxt.net v0.0.7 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-07-25 // almost 2 years ago
  • This is a BIG release! Contains lots of bug fixes and new features and improvements. If you haven't tried out the software yourself yet by installing it and running your own instance I would encourage you to do so! If you don't have the time or expertise then just jump on to the freely available (first of many) public instance at twtxt.net ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Here are the highlights:

    • ๐Ÿ†• New [Reply] feature where if you hit reply on a post it automatically starts out your post with @user so you can start replying to someone straight away! ๐ŸŽ‰
    • New special twtxt feed that automatically publishes internal events. When someone follows you (or unfollows you) you get notified by this feed. Follow this special feed if you want to discover new followers and followees both local and external! ๐Ÿ’ก
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed some poor spacing in the timeline view between posts on larger devices! Thanks @Evil_Bob for reporting! ๐Ÿ˜‡

    For Developers:

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed the CI builds
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved the Docker builds so they are much faster.

    ๐Ÿฑ Enjoy and happy twt'ing ๐Ÿค—
