  • Add rake task to check and purge accounts that are missing in origin (#6085)

    Usage: rails mastodon:maintenance:purge_removed_accounts will scan through all known remote accounts. If one cannot be re-resolved, you will be asked for confirmation to delete it from your database. If you don't want to be asked for confirmation each time, use the command rails mastodon:maintenance:purge_removed_accounts -- --force

    This command is not expected to be run frequently or systematically. Sometimes you may wish to preserve copies of accounts that have disappeared. Another fix included in this release will ensure that purposefully deleted accounts no longer leave behind anything on remote servers in the future.

  • Make some federation APIs cacheable by e.g. nginx or varnish (#6101, #6115)
  • Cache JSON of immutable ActivityPub representations (#6171)
  • Add more instance stats APIs (#6125)

    From the point of deployment, Mastodon will begin counting weekly numbers of active users, posted statuses and new registrations. These numbers will be available from GET /api/v1/instance/activity. Furthermore, the instance will announce the list of domains it has seen under GET /api/v1/instance/peers. Please mind that those domains are not the domains of users followed by the users of this instance, nor do domain blocks have any effect on the list. It is merely the domains of users the instance has previously resolved. The commonly known "connections" count metric has previously announced this exact data.

    Both of these new stats endpoints can be disabled from admin settings.
