We have updated our instance configuration to default to excluding user profiles from search engine indexes. Previously, accounts were included by default. Now, they are excluded by default. This change doesn’t impact users who have modified this setting.
You can remain in search indexes in your user settings.
Existing user content may remain cached in search indexes for some time, but should be removed over time to match our new config.
Reach out with any questions.
Okay! ElasticSearch indexes are still being regenerated, but otherwise things seems stable.
We've upgraded from 2.9.2 -> 3.0.1. The release notes are here, you should look at the 3.0.0 notes for the most exciting features: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases
We've got trending hashtags, we've got new client-side OCR for image descriptions, we've got better search results UI, we've got better 2FA settings, we've got new spam controls... check it out, folks!
We have completed the migration from Cloudflare for mastodon.technology. It was quite a process, so @ashfurrow has a retrospective written up here: https://ashfurrow.com/blog/migrating-from-cloudflare/
Special thanks to @IzzyOnDroid for their help researching alternatives 🎉
Hmm, due to a quirk with Namecheap’s user interface, it appears that some mail servers have cached incomplete DNS records from the new nameserver. Email delivery (for notifications, password resets, etc) will have intermittent delivery failures while DNS completes propagating. Will monitor and keep you updated, retrospective blog post is coming 👍
Okay, reboots complete! We’ve moved our traffic over to use our new CDN provider. You may need to refresh browsers to receive a new Content-Security Policy response header.
The migration away from Cloudflare is still an ongoing project, since they are still DNS nameservers for m.t and we want this CDN change to stabilize first. But this is the biggest step. A blog post outlining the steps we took and lessons learned is forthcoming.
