Pleased to report that Hometown v1.0.5+3.3.0 is now released! This release adds no new features, it simply brings Hometown up to date with Mastodon v3.3.0.

I feel bad that it took me 4 months to make this happen, but updating software in a pandemic is hard. I am now optimistic about my ability to get Hometown bug fixes and features done in the future.

@darius don't worry, you did a good job, now i can once again poke @Miaourt with a proof that it's alive :blobcatNomCookie:

@darius the amount of energy that I need to work up to do a merge on a "fun" project is immense. I recently put off a merge for 2 years on a project that I only changed 2 lines of code on :0

@darius please don’t feel bad, you don’t owe anyone anything and the reason why is especially understood. your work on this is very appreciated by many.

@darius we always appreciate your time and effort <3

@darius Amazing work! Don't beat yourself up about the timeline - the pandemic has been (and continues to be) very hard on all of us. 😔

@alex @darius so delighted to learn that Dad Mastodon exists and has an excellent domain

Awesome! Gonna see if I can migrate from Mastodon this weekend! Thank you so much! 💕💕💕


I'd love to have the features this fork have added. Really great project!

@darius Thank you very much for your hard work! Very much looking forward to the update over here. :ms_smile:

@darius So I'm kinda new here and have managed to miss Hometown until you posted about it on Patreon earlier. Looks like some very nice features you've got added though; I may have to migrate!

And hey if you think four months is bad, you should see my git repos...I'm trying to clean it up right now...meaning 90% of the stuff in there is probably going to have every commit it will ever get all within the next week xD
