Some awesome additions that people have been after for a while now:
- Add support for importing/exporting server-wide domain blocks
- Ensure exact match is the first result in hashtag searches
- Add support for editing media description and focus point of already-sent posts
- Add listing of followed hashtags
And the list of fixes inbound with this version is monstrous.
This is great to see, but please keep in mind that your particular instance will need to be updated to this version so not all instances will update at the same time.
Some apps may also need to be updated in order to support these new features.

Thanks to @buercher for building it.
It's opt-in, not opt-out. It respects Mastodon culture and doesn't index accounts that don't sign in.
That means the index might be small if we don't spread the word.
Moving lets you take your followers, follows and some settings with you.
1. Create a new account on the instance you want to move to, but DO NOT delete the old account.
2. Log into your NEW account, go to Edit Profile > Moving From A Different Account, click on "create an account alias" and follow the instructions.
3. Log into your OLD account, go to Edit Profile > Move To A Different Account, click on "configure it here" and follow the instructions.
4. On your OLD account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Data Export and download the settings and follows lists.
5. On your NEW account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Import and upload the lists you just downloaded in the previous step.
After doing all these, your old account will redirect to the new one, and your followers will transfer automatically (with a short delay).

At least if I'm about to boost a picture without, glitch-soc will warn me about it. If a picture has an alt text like "screenshot of my tweet", that's less than useless but it will slip through the alt text detector.
Write good alt text ffs. Describe the picture. Not a title or a TLDR, a proper description. If it's text, copy the text into the image description. If it's selfies, don't write "a selfie of me", describe your selfies. Describe film scenes, descripe paintings, descripe charts and infographics. You have, on this instance at least, 1500 characters to describe your pictures. Do it.
And if 1500 isn't enough, you can add a second picture to keep describing it.

If you want to "close" your DMs on Mastodon, it's really easy to do -- via the web client.
Go to your Preferences, to Accounts, then to Notifications. Put a check next to "Block direct messages from people you don't follow."
