imagine you're a queer employee at cloudflare. you don't agree with every decision mgmt makes but hey, capitalism sucks, maybe you can change things from the inside. you're in an ERG for lgbt employees and you're pushing to get mgmt to drop clients that are targeting trans people and violating the TOS. They won't, but you negotiate a lame compromise where at least they're not profiting from them.

then the CEO basically posts the name of your slack channel on their company blog

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://[]/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 ->

The GtS web frontend for profiles and statuses now uses a lightbox for displaying images. This is much smoother than the previous implementation, which just opened the image in a new tab. If you prefer to browse without javascript enabled, the frontend will fall back to the old behavior :)

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 ->

You can now clear old notifications!

Lots and lots of tweaks and bugfixes, check the detailed changelog for full notes.

Migration Notes:

This release contains a few database migrations, which will run automatically when you’ve started up the new version. Please allow somewhere between 0 and 120 seconds for these migrations to run, and don’t interrupt them.

What is GoToSocial?
