Hello everyone! We just released GoToSocial v0.4.0 Fancy Sloth, the fifteenth alpha release of GoToSocial! 🦥
This release contains a whole bunch of fancy new stuff, bugfixes, and updates :fireworks:
We have a user settings panel now! The panel is located at https://[your-instance.com]/user. The settings panel allows you to add/update a Bio, set your Display Name, upload a Profile Picture, and more! The user guide for the settings panel is right here -> https://docs.gotosocial.org/en/latest/user_guide/user_panel/
Better markdown posting support: you can set your default post format using the user settings panel, in order to produce richer posts using markdown. Check the docs for more -> https://docs.gotosocial.org/en/latest/user_guide/posts/#input-types
You can now clear old notifications!
Lots and lots of tweaks and bugfixes, check the detailed changelog for full notes.
