🐀 Building a federated alternative to reddit in rust - LemmyNet/lemmy

Lemmy v0.7.40 Pre-Release (2020-08-05)

We’ve added a lot in this pre-release:

  • New post sorts Active (previously called hot), and Hot. Active shows posts with recent comments, hot shows highly ranked posts.
  • Customizeable site icon and banner, user icon and banner, and community icon and banner.
  • Added user preferred names / display names, bios, and cakedays.
  • User settings are now shared across browsers (a page refresh will pick up changes).
  • Visual / Audio captchas through the lemmy API.
  • Lots of UI prettiness.
  • Lots of bug fixes.
  • Lots of additional translations.
  • Lots of federation prepping / additions / refactors.

This release removes the need for you to have a pictrs nginx route (the requests are now routed through lemmy directly). Follow the upgrade instructions below to replace your nginx with the new one.


With Ansible:

# run these commands locally
