Woohoo, #HomeTown is up to date with v3.3.0 🎉

Thanks @darius !

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.

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.

Really mad about this Linux kernel - academic research kerfuffle. See: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-nfs/YH%2FfM%2FTsbmcZzwnX@kroah.com/

Wtaf were these researchers thinking? How did the IRB not consider this human subjects resaerch? How did someone think this was an ethical thing to do?
