Notable Changes

  • If you enlarge a photo inside a post by clicking on it, you will now receive the full resolution version.
  • If libjemalloc is installed on your server, diaspora*s memory consumption should be reduced by a fair bit, and stay more stable at a lower level. For Debian and Ubuntu, you can install the libjemalloc1 package, and while it might be called slightly different for other distributions, you can probably figure it out. :) If you don't use script/server to start diaspora, have a look at the pull request and adopt your solution to use libjemalloc by setting LD_PRELOAD accordingly.
  • Podmins can now assign administration and moderation roles with a simple click from within diaspora*s admin panel.

Updating
