Blog post week 2020-17: Funkwhale 0.21 is out!

What has happened since last time?

Funkwhale 0.21 is out

Funkwhale 0.21, codename "Agate", was officially published this morning! You can now upgrade your pod or install a brand new one, to benefit from the dozens of new features, enhancements and bugfixes shipped in this release, including:

  • Support for publishing and subscribing to podcasts
  • Brand new navigation, queue and player redesign
  • Browsing a library content through the UI
  • Federated reports
  • Screening for sign-ups
  • Enforceable email verification
  • More reliable and less resource-hungry CLI importer, esp. on large libraries

As usual, we recommend reading the full changelog before upgrading.

This release is dedicated to Agate, to thank her, for both having created the Funkwhale project, being the current lead developer, and for her courage of coming out. Thank you Agate from all the members of the Funkwhale community \<3

We are truly grateful as well to the dozens of people who contributed to this release with translations, development, documentation, reviews, design, testing, feedback, financial support, third-party projects and integrations... You made it possible!

What's next?

Now that 0.21 is published, we'll probably take a break and start scheduling tickets for the stable release.

Funkwhale 1.0 will focuse on stability, bugfixing, and building a solid, backward-compatible foundation for the project. You can expect to hear more about this in the upcoming weeks :)
