Did you know that anyone can start the translation to a new language on Weblate? Just make an account and then click the "Start new translation" button on the project page:
Someone just started the translation to Indonesian! Thank you so much ❤️
@PixelDroid @davidoclubb I just implemented that api endpoint in https://github.com/pixelfed/pixelfed/pull/2761/commits/241ae0368fb772de50c7cbaa9e7ec17a5f36fc10 😎

And there comes the #app 🌧️ – this time 51 updates and 4 new apps:
* @PixelDroid is a client for our Fediverse friends at Pixelfed 🖼️
* Another notes app is – another notes app? 🎶 🤪 nope, 📔
* Instant Sound Effects is a fun app to make noises (no farts, though) 🔊
* unofficial Stud.IP-app is a… yes, unofficial app for Stud.IP 👩🎓
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
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!

Great news everyone! The #FediLab dev will resume development of his projects and now has some help!
Follow @apps to stay up to date and a message from Tom is available here https://framagit.org/tom79/fedilab/-/issues/498#note_872212
Just pushed a release, this one fixes some bugs introduced in last week's release, and overhauls the post creation process.
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.
🛡️ If you used PixelDroid with multiple accounts with the last release, please read the release notes!
This one has some various improvements, bug fixes.
There are also some big changes in how the feeds are handled internally: they are now cached and should provide better performance and make the app feel smoother. Might still have some rough edges but it's a much better base upon which we can build further.
Check out our latest release here:
Translations (weblate.pixeldroid.org) and issue reports (GitLab or here) welcome!
With ❤️, happy holidays!
We recently did another release, check out the changelogs here: https://gitlab.shinice.net/pixeldroid/PixelDroid/-/releases
Mostly some more polishing and bug fixing.
Bigger news to be expected in the coming weeks 😉
I just published a small bugfix release, adding images was causing the upload process to fail.
