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

This version fixes the problem of comment context not loading properly. It also fixes a couple other bugs.

Support development

@dessalines and @nutomic are working full-time on Lemmy to integrate community contributions, fix bugs, optimize performance and much more. This work is funded exclusively through donations.

If you like using Lemmy, and want to make sure that we will always be available to work full time building it, consider donating to support its development. No one likes recurring donations, but they’ve proven to be the only way that open-source software like Lemmy can stay independent and alive.

Upgrade instructions

Follow the upgrade instructions for ansible or docker. There are no config or API changes with this release.

If you need help with the upgrade, you can ask in our support forum or on the Matrix Chat.

    Support development

    I’ve subscribed monthly, if you can afford it, you should too!

    There’s no present danger of making the development team rich enough to dismantle the capitalist state. The funding is yet to reach normal subsistence level. You can see the sums collected in each of the platforms.

    Does anyone else have an issue where the browser back button causes Lemmy to go back twice?

    In other words, if you click “next” at the bottom of your feed, open a post and press the back button, does it return to the original page?

    Or, if you choose a sort, open a post and press the back button, does the sort get reverted?

    It started happening to me in 0.18.3, but I don’t want to file a report if I’m the only one experiencing this

      I tried it and if I click next, I go to page 2. Then I open a post and click the back button on the browser. And then I’m back on page 2, as expected.

      Also tried to switch sorting method and it remembers the sorting method when I go back from a post as expected.

      I think probably you have some plugin that is interfering. Try with another browser or a clean browser profile.

        I can reproduce it on Android in Firefox Nightly, but not in incognito mode (even while logged in). It happens in Chromium as well, including in incognito mode

        In Firefox, I’ve tried disabling all add-ons and tracking protection and clearing cache and cookies, to no avail

        I could test on other phones and operating systems, but I don’t really want to spend more time on this. It’s not that big of an issue for me

          Hmm. That’s really weird. Hopefully someone else in this thread can test also so we get more info.

      When this happens, I reload, which seems to return me to where I was in the feed. It’s a workaround, but it would be nice to just press the back button

          You’re welcome. May I suggest to redirecting http to https? Even default nginx conf doing that as I remember.

              I don’t want to bother you more but I tried it on my phone, with a browser I never use, it shows nginx page 🤔 FYI

                  Yep. I tried with a web proxy too.

                  Is there a chance you forgot reloading nginx?

      thanks for the arm builds, I am currently using masquernya/lemmy-arm64.git for arm builds. How do you handle the lemmy-translations update in your build pipeline for lemmy-ui?

      I do not see you doing the following, or did I miss something

      # manual updates
      cd lemmy-translations/;
      git checkout "$TRANSLATION_COMMIT" || exit 1;
      
      

      also do you have to trigger the build manually when a new lemmy version is out ?

        Hi, Thanks for the hints, and yes I have to trigger the pipeline by editing and commiting the Version information here

        do I really need

        cd lemmy-translations/;
        git checkout "$TRANSLATION_COMMIT" || exit 1;
        

        even if I have

        git submodule init
        git submodule update
        

        See here and here

          You can run git submodule update, then it will pull the same translations as specified in the lemmy repo. Or run git submodule update --remote, then it will pull the latest commit from lemmy-translations.

            Thanks, so my pipeline should be fine in the sense that it uses the commit of the submodule, stored in the version tagged lemmy commit

          I just tested it, submodule init+update pulls the latest commit of submodules, this could be different from the commit used in the tagged release version

              This not a big problem I guess, if anything it gives you the latest translations 🙂

    Where’s the best place for feature requests? Would love to see a nicer way to subscribe to communities.

    Could we get some more feature parity in the old.lemmy by chance? There’s no ability to block users, and you should be able to block a group without going into it first. (Let’s give you an example here. You don’t wanna see horse porn. It shows up in /c/ALL. You have to… VISIT the horse porn group, in order to block it…)

      That’s developed by a third party so you’ll have to ask them.

      You can block users / communities in lemmy-ui by going to their profile.

        You can block users / communities in lemmy-ui by going to their profile.

        I’m not the user you’re responding to and don’t use the ui they’re talking about, but going to those profiles can be more upsetting than the original comment or post, especially if it’s set up with large images or gifs. It’d be a lot nicer if blocking could be done from other places, too.

    Any update on the 2FA implementation (I mean: are you going to implement a way that’s a bit more standard than the current one which is unusable for a lot of users?

        It doesn’t work with most 2FA apps. The links to apps that supposedly work (in the original announcement post) are dead (to me at least) and they were links to apps I had never heard about before (which is less than encouraging).
