Notable Changes

  • The /public stream should be much faster now if you are using PostgreSQL. This is just the first step of many to come to improve the performance of all streams and tag pages.
  • The recent change to support full-resolution photos introduced issues with the thumbnails. This issue has been addressed.
  • The mobile-optimized interface now supports ignoring users.
