Maintenance/upgrade done 

Aaand we're on Mastodon 2.4.0. There are too many features and fixes to pack in one toot, so please check out the changelog, if you're interested:

Maintenance/upgrade imminent 

We're upgrading to the latest version of Mastodon within the next half hour. There might be hickups, or not. Fingers crossed.

Our server was down for around 45 minutes, due to a power supply issue at our hosting provider. We are now back, we are sorry about the downtime

Regarding the timeline hickups: everything is back to normal. Thanks to @gregkare for jumping in and helping out.

Still having some trouble. We're investigating...

We're terribly sorry for home timelines not having updated for the last 11 hours. Our database connection pool got overloaded somehow, and we didn't notice. Timelines are being rebuilt as we speak, and you should see new toots coming in, either already or very soon.

Thanks to @rburns for the report! update notice 

You're now using Mastodon 2.2.0, which includes, among others, nice new HTML versions of all email notifications, and an important bugfix for the home timeline for users who have been away for longer than two weeks.

Full changelog: update notice 

We just upgraded to Mastodon 2.1.3, which contains only bugfixes. Smooth sailing, as usual.

Release notes: update notice 

We just upgraded Mastodon to version 2.1.2. Release notes:

We just updated to the latest Mastodon (2.1.0). ☄️

Sorry for the hickup, and welcome to Mastodon 2.0, everyone!

Upgrading Mastodon to v.2.0.0. Things might break...

We just upgraded to Mastodon 1.6.1, meaning we finally have up-to-date profile stats for remote accounts!

Also a new video player, more video embeds, and some other features, improvements and bugfixes. Full changelog here:

Heads up: we identified an issue with updating remote profiles' follower/followed stats, causing it to not work as announced for 1.6. It will need a bugfix in a new Mastodon release.

Aaand we're on 1.6.0, everyone! It's a fantastic release, including a new federation standard and lots of improvements:

Check out for the highlights, and for the full changelog.
