They’ve currently disabled the builds for jerboa on f-droid, because I use the newest version of android studio to develop, which requires a release candidate of gradle: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/commit/470c8f4d533e4c4abf80fbd4ff17d0378e301e50#note_1264308138

This will probably be many months without builds, as android studio requires gradle RC versions.

I suggest installing jerboa either from the github, or google play.

Thanks. Been a lot of bugs lately, I apologize for not testing this better.

Its an android app, not for iOS. There’s already an iOS app called remmel.

That error tells me nothing. Please ask in the matrix channel, I’m very busy with coding.

Just let me code, please. Ask in the support channels on matrix or here for assistance.

Anyone have a good recommendation for open source continuous integration (CI) ?
We have been using a self-hosted drone for a long time, and now they're telling us we need to purchase a license 💩

It can’t connect to the DB because you didn’t do the upgrade properly. Follow these instructions: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/RELEASES.md#upgrade-instructions

You’ll have to post your docker logs.

sudo docker-compose logs lemmy

There’s an open issue for that in Lemmy, we’re deciding the best way to solve it.

Could you open up an issue on the lemmy-ui github for this? With how to replicate it too. Thanks

No bc I don’t know the details of how your lectures get uploaded and titled.

Could you open up an issue on the github? Thanks.

You could make private torrents for the lectures, and have some internally accessible document that lists the magnet links.

Did the postgres upgrade script show any errors?

Did you do any manual DB editing before you ran this?

I ask because I tested this upgrade many times, on production DBs that have years of history, to make sure nothing got lost.

Open up an issue in on the lemmy ui github, with how to reproduce.

Its probably because you don’t have that language allowed in either your instance, or community settings.

Yes these are for new comments. Its comments within 10 minutes.

Yes this seems critical, I’ve opened up a bug in lemmy-ui to fix it.

These probably need to opened up as issues on the github.

Looks like the transphobic anti-vaccination instance shut itself down. They were advertising jerboa as a “native wolfballs client”.

The top level / home page.

It hasn’t been updated for lemmy 0.17.0, open up an issue on remmel’s github.

Hrmm not sure how that happened… you can go to your settings to change it.

They def should show up immediately…refresh your browser cache, and if it’s still a problem, open up an issue.

Also I apologize that the upgrade here took longer than expected. It was a massive conversion of comments to a different form, that had to work for several hundred thousand historical comments.

Lemmy Release v0.17.0
Its been a long time coming 🥳 . Excerpt from the link: ## Major Changes ### Language Tags Content can now be tagged to indicate the language it is written in. These tags can be used to filter content, so that you only see posts in languages which you actually understand. Instances and communities can also specify which languages are allowed, and prevent posting in other languages. In the future this will also allow for integrated translation tools. ### Comment trees Lemmy has changed the way it stores comments, in order to be able to properly limit the comments shown to a maximum depth. Included are proper comment links (`/comment/id`), where you can see its children, a count of its hidden children, and a _context_ button to view its parents, or the post. ### Featured posts Admins and mods can now "feature" (this used to be called "sticky" ala reddit) posts to the top of either a community, or the top of the front page. This makes possible announcement and bulletin-type posts. Special thanks to @makotech for adding this feature. ### Federation Lemmy users can now be followed. Just visit a user profile from another platform like Mastodon, and click the follow button, then you will receive new posts and comments in the timeline. Votes are now federated as private. This prevents other platforms from showing who voted on a given post, and it also means that Lemmy now counts votes from Mastodon. This release also improves compatibility with Pleroma. If you previously had trouble interacting between Pleroma and Lemmy, give it another try. We've extracted the main federation logic into its own library, [activitypub-federation-rust](https://github.com/LemmyNet/activitypub-federation-rust). It is open source and can be used by other projects to implement Activitypub federation, without having to reinvent the wheel. The library helps with handling HTTP signatures, sending and receiving activities, fetching remote objects and more. ### Other changes - Admins can now purge content and pictures from the database. - Mods can _distinguish_ a comment, "stickying" it to the top of a post. Useful for mod messages and announcements. - Number of new / unread comments are now shown for each post. - Lemmy now automatically embeds videos from Peertube, Youtube and other sites which provide an embed link via Opengraph attribute. - You can give your site "taglines", short markdown messages, which are shown at the top of your front page. Thanks to @makotech for adding this. - You can now report private messages. - Most settings have been moved from the config file into the database. This means they can be updated much easier, and apply immediately without a restart. - When setting up a new Lemmy instance, it doesn't create a default community anymore. Instead this needs to be done manually. - Admins can choose to receive emails for new registration applications. - An upgrade of diesel to v2.0, our rust -> postgres layer.

Works with the new lemmy version.

Lemmy upgrade tomorrow (or wednesday), and we’ll have a few hours of downtime.
We're getting ready to release a new version of Lemmy, which will require a database upgrade, so we'll have a few hours of downtime.

Apologies for all the translators that weren't able to sign up before (it was email issues), this should be fixed now.

This is the MessagEase layout for the MultilingO keyboard. Unfortunately MessagEase development (which is the fastest android keyboard), died several years ago, and we're in dire need of a replacement.

Did any of yall get this? Really annoying.

Idea for a Lemmy project: Create a stackoverflow style front-end for lemmy.
In the same way that Nutomic built a phpBB themed front end, it would be entirely possible to create a stack-overflow type one, as many of the same concepts translate over.

Someone made a RTL Arabic lemmy!
Could someone who speaks Arabic please contact them? I'd love to get those changes incorporated into lemmy-ui.

Pictures should be working smoothly now.
All the old pictures are restored from a backup, and should be working now. We've bought more hard drive space too, so we should be okay for a while.

Welcome to Lemmy, I'm one of the devs and admins for this instance. Being pro-piracy, and allowing torrent magnet links 🏴‍☠️ , is one of the original reasons I started working on lemmy ( even a lot of the better reddit alts refuse to allow magnet links, or be pirate-friendly). One of the best ways to keep the stream alive, is by decentralizing the ways we find and access content. Torrents do this directly for data, but I hope that lemmy, as a federated reddit alternative, can eventually serve as a platform to aggregate, post, and comment on pirated data in a decentralized way. [More info about Lemmy including docs, how federation works, and a good onboarding site.](https://join-lemmy.org/) Welcome aboard!

## What is Lemmy? Lemmy is a self-hosted social link aggregation and discussion platform. It is completely free and open, and not controlled by any company. This means that there is no advertising, tracking, or secret algorithms. Content is organized into communities, so it is easy to subscribe to topics that you are interested in, and ignore others. Voting is used to bring the most interesting items to the top. ## Major Changes A full list of fixes is below, but this patch release includes federation compatibility and bug fixes, as well as fixing vulnerabilities in our websocket rate limiting. ## Upgrade notes Besides the addition of a [search rate limit to the lemmy.hjson](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/config/defaults.hjson#L39), there are no config or API changes. Follow the [Docker or Ansible upgrade instructions here.](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/administration/administration.html) ## Support development We (@dessalines and @nutomic) have been working full-time on Lemmy for almost two years. This is largely thanks to support from [NLnet foundation](https://nlnet.nl/). If you would like to support our efforts, please consider [donating](https://join-lemmy.org/donate). If you'd like to support development, and make sure that we will always be available to work full time on Lemmy, consider [donating to support its development](https://join-lemmy.org/donate). We've spent hundreds of hours on Lemmy, and would like to be able to add more developers to our little open-source co-op as time goes on. ## Changes ### Lemmy Server - Federate user account deletion (fixes [#1284](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1284)) ([#2199](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2199)) - Dont federate initial upvote ([#2196](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2196)) - Add missing mod log entries for federated actions (fixes [#1489](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1489)) ([#2198](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2198)) - Make sure application questionaire is required.
