For now the fork is essentially "Mastodon 2.9.0 with benefits", but in coming months more exciting features will be introduced. But this is a big milestone - it is no longer "vaporware" 🤩
@TreacherousNexus exciting stuff!
@TreacherousNexus The only feature is configurable post/bio length?
…weird how we're so used to being screwed over and dismissed that that actually sounds REALLY GOOD
@flussence users can also decide if they want to see DMs in the home timeline, just FYI 🙂
But you are right. The main focus for this release I think was on getting a stable codebase and doing project-related things/ basic fork stuff.
It's worth taking a look at the issue list to see the kinds of ideas that are floating around. Here's the tracking issue on Github: https://github.com/florence-social/mastodon-fork/issues/2
This Mastodon instance is for tech workers, academics, students, and others interested in tech who are LGBTQIA+ or Allies.
