📣 Outage Notification: On Tuesday 23rd May 2023 between 7.30am to 5pm, there will be an outage of undefined length with no known start time due to planned power meter upgrades on the premises by the energy company.

You know, it’s one of those things where they give you a ~12hr window 🤦‍♂️ I will post here again once the technician is on-site and power down. I will power back up as soon as the work is complete.

According to the information I’ve received, the outage should be no more than ~1-2hrs.

Apologies for any inconvenience 🤗

📣 **NEW:** For those that run a Yarn.social pod (_an instance of `yarnd`_) for their Twtxt needs for themselves, family and friends, please be aware of the following change/commit in `main` or `edge` (if you use the Docker image):

```
* f3f1e429 2022-12-21 | Add configurable front page (anonymous discover view) behaviour (HEAD -> main, origin/main) [James Mills]
```

Be aware that this change will by default make the front page of your pod display "local" posts only. This only affects the front page for anonymous viewers, this does not affect the _actual_ "Discover" view (once authenticated).

If you want the old behaviour, go to Settings -> Poderator Settings and change the "Front page displays" option.

📣 **Release:** yarn v0.15 - Phosphorus Phoenix

Hello Yarners! 🤗

It's again been a long while since our Last Release yarnd v0.14 over ~6 months ago! 😳 Sorry about that! 🙏 I guess we got a bit busy with a few other things going on...

First of all a big thanks to everybody who has given all of their time and effort to help Yarn.social become a better platform every day.

A _special_ thanks to our new contributors @tkanos and @eaplmx who recently started contributing to the project! Thank you! 🙏

Without further ado, here are the highlights for the 0.15 release!

## Highlights

- **Twtxt Search Engine** -- The much improved Twtxt Search Engine
- **NEW** Sync API 🥳 (see below)
- Add Block Quote button to the Postbox.
- Add official "Feed Types" (see below)

Its a bit of a small(ish) release with no that many "big" new features (sorry!) mostly just bug fixes and little improvements. So if you're curious please see the full Change Log below.

### Twtxt Search Engine

The **much improved** Twtxt Search Engine is out which improves the index greatly, performance and overall functionality and UX.

Help pages have been improved and overall searches are "just better".

Check it out!

### Sync API

For a long time we've talked about the possibility of "syncing" a local feed with your feed on a Yarn.social pod. This is now possible with a 3-way Sync API `/api/v1/sync` and a sub command of the `yarnc` command-line client. Usage is as simple as:

```console
$ yarnc sync twtxt.txt
```

See `yarnc sync --help` and the Sync API (https://dev.twtxt.net/doc/api.html#sync) API endpoint documentation for more details.

### Feed Types

In order to better improve the code and manageability of different feed types such as automated feeds (bots) and RSS / Atom feeds, we have defined a set of [Feed Types
namely:

- `rss` -- A Twtxt feed whose primary source comes from an RSS / Atom feed.
- `bot` -- A Twtxt feed which is fully automated by some script or automation.

These are the **only** feed types currently and we do not expect any more really. The way this works is ti simply add `# type = rss|bot` to your feed if the feed you are publishing is a non-human/non-user feed. Omitting the `type` Metadata is completely fine and optional. The default for all feeds is a User / Human feed.

This helps us categorize and filter out noise feeds, automated feeds from views like the "Discover" view on Yarn.social pods and serve as a way to "filter" for these types of feed in the Twtxt Search Engine.

# yarnd v0.14 Silicon Sphinx

Hello Yarners! 🤗

Long time no release! We have a pretty big 0.14 release and we are already prepping our 0.15 features!

First of all a big thanks to everybody who has given all of their time and effort to help Yarn.social become a better platform every day.

Without further ado, here are the following changes for our 0.14 release!

* Replies to users or feeds who have been muted will display a 'muted' message.
* Realtime feed fetching using WebSub.
* Added additional metrics and debugging API for WebSub.

If ever you weren't sure wtf Yarn.social even is, or why it matters, you are more than welcome to play around with the Demo Pod, just be aware that it is isolated from the rest of the network, and we will wipe it at any time without warning or notice, it's just a demo 😅 (probably we'll wipe it only once per release of `yarnd` -- the software backend).

📣 **NEW:** I realize we're still in a "code freeze" for Yarn.social's backend `yarnd`; however I wanted to share a new feature that just got built this weekend.

WebSub

This means the following two experimental features are not complementary and can hopefully both be promoted soon™ 🤞

- moving_average_feed_refresh
- websub

I would encourage anyone that normally runs `yarnd` from the `main` branch or the prologic/yarnd:latest Docker Image to give this a try and report any issues you come across!

You can enable this feature `websub` or both `websub` and `moving_average_feed_refresh`
in your Manage Pod UI and entering the features there one per line and
hitting "Save".

Thank you! 🙇‍♂️

📣 **NEW:** Releases - yarn - v0.13.0 - Aluminium Amarok

Hello Yarners! 🤗

What a month (_and a bit_) it has been! 😅 During this time we've closed out
78 Pull Requests, 55 Issues from the hard work of 8 contributors over 174 commits!

This release `yarnd v0.13` is **special** because this will be the last release
for a while. The project will be entering a "feature freeze" whilst the developers
and active contributors slow down a bit and work on some other much-needed components.

We will be working on improving documentation, deployment guides, builtin pages
and other supporting services and components in the ecosystem. In addition a
decision has been made to relicense all software components under a new license
(AGPLv3) going forward. We hope this will not affect contributions in any way but
will also serve to protect what we've all worked so hard to build.

But don't worry! We will still be committing to `main`, we just won't be adding
and new significant new features for a while.

Without further ado, here are the following changes for our 0.12 release!

## Highlights

First the important noteworthy bug-fixes: 🐞

- Fixed various rendering issues with `blockquote`(s) and code snippets.
- Fixed image alt and title rendering
- Fixed various Cache consistency bugs
- Fixed privacy issue in "Mentions" view
- Fixed support for WebMentions and cross-pod mentions
- Fixed weird behaviour when accidentally posting an empty Twt

And finally the new shiny new features! 🥳

- Pod Owner/Operators (_Poderators_) can now edit Pod pages in `data/pages/<name>.md` and changes are reflected live!
- Users that reply to someone they don't follow now correctly @-mention them.
- Users can now @-mention cross-pod as well as any Twtxt-supported feed using the now well supported syntax @nick
- Added first-class support for GIF(s) 🦋 Finally! 😅
- Added support for fetching feeds over gemini://
- Added support for Twitter Summary Card
- Added support for pressing Escape to cancel a Reply
- Added support for configuring Twts Per Page in Manage Pod

Hello Yarners! 🤗

Happy New Year! #2021 #NewYearsEve 🥳

For those of you that live on _this_ side of the planet, Welcome to #2022 🥳

----

This year in Yarn we have a brand new version of `yarnd`
for you all with exciting new features! 🥳 Some of you have already been using them! 😅

Highlights:

- **NEW** Peers _try_ to validate the authenticity of injected Twts between peers.This has _finally_ #resolved the issue with my Avatar that kept reverting back and forth 😂
- **NEW** New `refresh` Metadata field added to the Metadata ext allowing feed authors to _manually_ hint to clients as to how often their feeds should be fetched.
- **NEW** Moving Average Feed Refresh (_currently in experimental_) feature (Enable with `moving_average_feed_refresh`) that automatically backs off fetching/refreshing feeds based on an exponential moving average of feed's update frequency. This helps to reduce traffic to pods and external feeds but keep the network convergent within 60s to 10m (_on-pod are always instantaneous_) 🚀
- **NEW** Improvements to the `yarnc timeline` command to support `-r/--reverse` and `-n/--twts` 🧑‍💻
- **NEW** Support for pruning old dead accounts a multi-user pod _might_ accumulate. This sends an email to the Pod Owner on a weekly basis and uses a heuristic score ranges from 1000 (_every user_) to 2993 (_users who have never posted, never updated any part of their profile_). A Poderator (_Pod Owner/Operator_) is sent a weekly candidates of up to 10 users with a score `> 1200` for consideration. 👻
- **NEW** Active Users. Pods now measure two key metrics a Poderator can track, Daily Active Users (DAU) and Monthly Active Users (MAU). These are only accurate to a day. 📈
- **NEW** New followers tracking that is now _actually_ accurate and is pruned once-per-week. So now your "Followers" count, even across pods **will** be accurate and up-to-date 🥳
- **FIXED** Finally squished that annoying bug 🐞 causing profile data to flip-flop
- **FIXED** The `LookupHandler()` was fixed to support auto/tab-completion for external feeds! 🥳
- **UPDATE** Update Chinese and Taiwanese translations! 🇨🇳 🇹🇼

Big thanks to @gbmor for driving the need for some much needed network optimizations!
Thanks again to @ullarah for the many UI/UX updates and improvements! 🙇‍♂️

If you regularly run `yarnd` on `master`; please `git pull`, rebuild and enable the feature `converge`.

This will fill in missing twts found during a feed cache cycle by asking peering pods for the missing twt.

Testing so far has found the experimental feature `converge` to be working quite well 👌

Releases - yarn - v0.7.0

> This is _probably_ one of the biggest releases of `yarnd` in a while, there were a lot of bug fixes, improvements as well as a tonne of new features. 🥳

Highlights:

- Custom pages
The About, Privacy and Abuse pages can now be customised by Pod Owner/Operators.
To do so simply copy the builtin ones `cp -a internal/pages /path/to/data` or
just start creating matching pages in `/path/to/data/pages`.
Note that unfortunately at this time customising pages requires a restart of
the backend `yarnd` as page content is cached.
- Login via Email
Users can now login with their email address in addition to their username
and password (_if set_). This feature can be enabled by Pod Owners/Operators
with the `magic_link_auth` feature flag.
- Improved UX for Follow/Unfollow and Mute/Unmute buttons with graceful JS fallback!
- Pod-level Timezone, Time format and Open links in preferences.
- New `/custom` support for themes to serve arbitrary static assets
This new route allows Pod Owner/Operators to serve up arbitrary static assets
with any directory structure that cannot be easily served up by the existing
`/css/:commit`, `/img/:commit` and `/js/:commit` routes. Custom static assets
should be placed in a directory called `custom` under `/path/to/theme`.

> In addition it also adds "Feed Rotation" via a `RotateFeeds()` job as this has become necessary now (_@prologic filled his feed! finally after 16 months!_). Feed rotation is performed at ~2am on a Sunday (weekly) and is controlled by the `-F/--max-fetch-limit` pod configuration.

Enjoy! 🤗 As usual send feedback to @prologic 😅

Enjoy! 🤗
