Avatars, email notifications, and a whole lot more
Written by @dessalines, 2020-01-16
v0.6.0 is here, and we’ve closed 41 issues!
This is the biggest release by far:
- Optional Email notifications for username mentions, post and comment replies.
- Ability to change your password and email address.
- Can set a custom language.
- Lemmy-wide settings to disable downvotes, and close registration.
- A better documentation system, hosted in lemmy itself.
- Huge DB performance gains (everthing down to <
30ms) by using materialized views.
- Fixed major issue with similar post URL and title searching.
- Upgraded to Actix
- Faster comment / post voting.
- Better small screen support.
- Lots of bug fixes, refactoring of back end code.
Another major announcement is that Lemmy now has another lead developer besides me, @email@example.com. Theyve created a better documentation system, implemented RSS feeds, simplified docker and project configs, upgraded actix, working on federation, a whole lot more.
