I wanted to be able to work on PixelDroid without having to uninstall the F-Droid build, so I finally got around to making the debug builds have a different applicationId, with a different icon. Behold, my artistic legend lead to this magnificent creation :

It seems I have identified the Pixelfed bug 🎉 (it was a typo). Sharing patch with @pixelfed devs now (I really don't want to touch GitHub if I can avoid it xD)

Show thread

Posting on Pixelfed instances from apps has broken, it seems across multiple apps. We think a change on the server is responsible, and will try to troubleshoot what went wrong.

Also, a new PixelDroid release is coming, we hope with a bunch of improvements, including blurhash and seeing all the posts on someone's profile. Soon ™️ (maybe this week-end? 😉)

The blurhash functionality will make the experience on a slow connection much better, and the app will feel smoother thanks to it 😊

Thanks @dansup for implementing this on the server side :)

Also coming soon: 1️⃣ PixelDroid will stop you from trying to put more pictures in a single post than your server supports, and 2️⃣ warn you if an image is too big (option to compress in those cases is on the TODO list). 3️⃣ You will be able to see all the images of a profile, instead of just the first images

Release time!

This one adds the ability to set image descriptions (good practice for accessibility reasons, but also handy to comment on each photo), and there are translation improvements (plurals are now supported, so languages like Russian with more nuanced plurals can translate things correctly).

Thank you for the crash reports, a regression caused by a change in the last release was fixed!

I am saddened by the news regarding tom79, it highlights a real problem in the fediverse. So far, our interactions with the community have been great though, so thank you for that ❤️

Small release with bug fixes, including one security bug fix.
