Hey, y'all :)

It has lots of stuff, but my favorites are:

Hey folks!

I'm silencing mastodon.cloud because of issues with lack of moderation [1].
I will ban then in a week, if you still follow folks over there, you have this time to try to figure out a solution without loosing their posts.

Hey, y'all!
Due to paper that surfaced this weekend [1] which scraped posts from several instances without authorization, I'm enabling mastodon's "secure mode" which tries to add an extra layer of security for requests.
It might make servers pre-3.0 have troubles communicating with lewd.town.
If you have any troubles, let me know :)

- Dropped support for OStatus protocol, which means, there's no more way to talk to GNUSocial instances
- There's now an audio player in the UI

And a lot of more stuff, that can be seen over here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I'm still regenerating the search. If you see any troubles, let me know!
