Its been a long time coming 🥳 .
Excerpt from the link:
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.
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.
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.
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. 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.
Feel free to announce new communities here.
Other than that, this is reserved for admin use only.
Mobile web browser, search bar magnifying glass isn’t registering clicks anymore but it does on desktop view
Could you open up an issue on the github? Thanks.
I found that now iframes don’t work on lemmy and it’s unclear how to embed videos or playlists. maybe you would consider integrating editorjs? Otherwise, creating comments and posts doesn’t look User friendly.
One of its revised versions is used on vc.ru , dtf.ru and tjournal.ru . This helps to improve user interaction with content generation.
🎉 thanks to the developers and everyone who helped!
one bug i noticed after the upgrade: my notifications page shows unread notifications for (what i guess is) every reply i’ve ever received which was later deleted. the count in the bell icon only reflected the actual new unread notifications I had received since I last looked, but when i click to view my unread notifications then all of these old ones about deleted messages appear to be unread now.
And yes… i didn’t say thank you to you and you work.
Lemmy is so cool.
And my part to make it better is to report bugs, if i find some…
Thank you so much, for your work!
Dont worry, we definitely appreciate your effort :)
I faced another thing…
Almost all of my joined communities are now not following, just pending…
I have to cancel the following-request and follow again. This happens after upgrade to 0.17.0
There’s an open issue for that in Lemmy, we’re deciding the best way to solve it.
First i see this and click to “Subscribe pending”
then i have to click “Subscribe”
and then, the subscription was successful.
but i was subscribed at all these communities before the upgrade.
Here is answering in “Deutsch” possible.
And searching for Peertube-Channels does not work any more. I created a bugreport https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ui/issues/920
Why do some comments appear white?
Is this suppose to highlight new comments? because if it is it does not seem to work OK, I only visited yesterday yet a comment from 23m ago is not highlighted.
Yes these are for new comments. Its comments within 10 minutes.
I can’t see how that is useful, is it just until the “real” functionality for highlighting the new comments since last visit will be implemented?

Oh… and another annoying thing…
I choose german as my first language. Writing a comment here, germsn is selected. Klicking on “Post” gived me an error for wrong language… an a spinning Button. No chance to change language and post it again. Clicking on cancle, deletes my comment…
I created a bugreport for this: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ui/issues/919
This is probably related to the language settings on your instance. Can you give the exact error message, and any errors which might show in the browser console or on the server?
Now i could reproduce it.
The errormessage was “Language not allowed” in the left down corner.
In the browser-console is maybe this:
That is strange… tried to reproduce it too… no way.
Did you change the language settings on your instance in between?
this comments are working in “Deutsch” again… in the same thread, as the complaining comment too…
Hallo @firstname.lastname@example.org Hier in Deutsch
There is a bug, when i’m writing a coment and get notification someone comment on one of my earlier comments, everything i’m just writing disappear for good. Lost few walls of text already to this.
Here is answering in “Deutsch” not possible.
Yes this seems critical, I’ve opened up a bug in lemmy-ui to fix it.
Here is the same. I can not create a comment, when setting for this comment is “Deutsch”. The errormessage on the server is:
Its probably because you don’t have that language allowed in either your instance, or community settings.
The same setting on a comment in the same community, the same posting, but other answer works… this is strange.
This error happens in THIS comment-thread. Sometimes i can answer with “German” and then i’m not allowed
This answer i made with setting “German” And here it workes.
which one is it?
Oh yes. This hapoened to me too, today.
What is considered the Front Page?
The top level / home page.
I’m a new user and it’s really exciting to see the evolution happening here. Thank you!
And i tested federation with pleroma. This is a Posting in Pleroma in my lemmys testcommunity
and this comes in lemmy
It works, but not very good. “TEST von pleroma” is set as “Subject” in Pleroma, but it ist not recognized in Lemmy. Pleroma has a Subject. Mastodon not.
the subject from mastadon can be handled by making it whatever is in the first sentence\paragraph. making anything after a line break become the body of the post
This is just a workaround from lemmy, to support Mastodon… 🙏
