Choose a tag to compare

This is the first official release of Hometown! This release is up to date with Mastodon v2.9.3, so please check there for individual patch notes if you're upgrading from Mastodon 2.9.2 or lower.

Unique features we are launching with include:

If you're installing Hometown for the first time, please follow the instructions on the wiki. You should have Mastodon v2.9.2 installed, or v2.9.3 will work too.

Upgrading from pre-release

For those of you wonderful people who had already installed a pre-release Hometown from source, you can upgrade using the following instructions:

Use git fetch && git checkout v1.0.0+2.9.3

  • Install dependencies: bundle install
  • If you were relying on Puma and Node binding to by default for your setup, adjust your configuration by using the BIND= environment variable
  • Precompile the assets: RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails assets:precompile
  • Restart all Mastodon processes

Note: if you're upgrading from a very early pre-release you might need to do a database migration as well:

  • RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails db:migrate

A note on versioning

You might wonder what the version number means. The 1.0.0 part is the actual Hometown version number, and then the 2.9.3 after the + sign is what's known in semantic versioning as "build metadata". It just means that this release has all the Mastodon version 2.9.3 features in it.
