Hi! I need to check up on this thing more. I just saw @marcozehe's blog post linking to some of the changes that happened with #pinafore and #a11y. Man is this client fast. The fact I can use it exclusively with hotkeys rather than screen reader virtual buffers is great. The fact I don't lose my place when looking at a conversation and then closing it is even better.
SVGs are smaller now (thanks to GitHub user alrra), the JS bundle is slightly smaller, and custom emoji now correctly show in polls. Enjoy!
Release notes: https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/releases/tag/v1.15.4
If you're using Firefox and having trouble updating #Pinafore to the latest version (the latest is v1.15.3, you can check in Settings -> About Pinafore, and normally a refresh will do the trick), then you can fix it with the following steps:
- Go to about:serviceworkers
- Search for Pinafore
- Click "unregister"
- Reload the page
Sorry for the trouble! You can track this issue here: https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/issues/1604
Another tiny release!
- Thanks to @vinnl, the title text on link cards can now be hovered to see the full text.
- Scroll-to-top in Chrome should be faster and smoother now.

Small bugfix release with some minor perf improvements, especially if you've used the "extract text from images" feature. Enjoy! https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/releases/tag/v1.15.2
@nolan You're welcome! Pinafore is for now by far the most accessible way to use Mastodon. I use it on desktop as well as iOS, both iPhone & iPad, too. So thank you again for getting accessibility in right from the start and making sure the new features you add are also accessible.
#Pinafore users: what's your preferred way of using Pinafore?
This release fixes some issues with:
- videos not playing correctly
- Pleroma replies containing too many at-mentions
- unnecessary cropping in options dialogs
#Pinafore users: if you are having trouble playing videos in Pinafore, please comment on this thread and describe your browser/OS/instance so we can get to the bottom of this bug. Thank you! 🙇 https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/issues/1590
A somewhat small release! The main new feature is hashtag autocomplete, which is shown when you start typing a #hashtag. Note that on Mastodon v3.0+ servers, this will only show hashtags approved by admins.

If #Pinafore were available as a mobile app (iOS or Android), would you use it?
New keyboard shortcuts! Left/right changes columns, 7 opens the compose box.

#Pinafore users: there is a known bug in search on Mastodon v3 instances such as dot social. In the meantime you can use https://dev.pinafore.social instead. https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/issues/1539
A small bugfix release related to how sensitive media is handled: https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/releases/tag/v1.13.1
- You can now mark media as sensitive even without a content warning.
- For locked accounts, the number of unhandled follow requests will be shown on the "Community" nav link.
- Clicking the avatar on an account page will show a full-resolution view.
- Hashtag links are now correctly case-insensitive.
- You can now set a focal point on an animated GIF.
- When autocompleting, the cursor no longer jumps to the end.
