⚠️ Mastodon 2.5.2 ⚠️


Security backport release. Please update as soon as possible.

@Mastodon wait but, I'm confused. What does "backport" mean? If I'm still on 2.5.0, do I need to upgrade to 2.5.2? I had these questions last backport but I can't remember, could we clarify in the release notes?

@ashfurrow @Mastodon Backport means it doesn't include everything that's been done towards 2.6.0, instead it only includes specific patches with minimal changes from the previous numbered version.


@Gargron @Mastodon Ah, that makes sense now (that's why `git pull` would not work). Okay, thank you.
