v0.6.0 is here, and we’ve closed 41 issues!

This is the biggest release by far:

  • Avatars!
  • 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 2.0
  • 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, @felix@radical.town. Theyve created a better documentation system, implemented RSS feeds, simplified docker and project configs, upgraded actix, working on federation, a whole lot more.

Hey @dessalines@lemmy.ml I have an question about the mail, I’ve got an instance of Lemmy up and the mail works but it doesn’t send any mails if an new post is post in a community I follow even though I have checked the checkbox of “Email notifications”. Is this normal behavior?

It doesn’t send an email for posts, only for your inbox, which is things like comment replies, mentions, private messages.

If you want a feed, there are RSS feeds for posts.

You can tell people about it of course, but I’ll still always consider it beta until federation is fully working.
