In 3.0, it is time to remove OStatus from Mastodon. Mastodon has not been designed as a multi-platform system and supporting a legacy platform creates messy and confusing code. Furthermore, the OStatus code has not been receiving the same performance and security improvements, in many parts because the OStatus protocol is inherently less secure in some aspects.

Pleroma, Misskey, Friendica, and Hubzilla have already switched to ActivityPub, the only software that still hasn't is GNU social. If that's where your friends are, then yes. But we can't hold off on it forever.

@Gargron no, was just curious because I run a node, so I know people will ask me eventually.

GNU social ActivityPub support is supposed to be ready in 3-4 months. Would it be so hard to wait until then?

@dalmemail this is just something planned as part of the 3.0 milestone. There isn't anything imminent about this ticket.
