I'm going to be taking on a rather large change of life in the very near future, and I'm having to dump a bunch of responsibilities and hobby-type things.
This lemmy instance falls in to that category. I would love to see someone with the technical know-how volunteer to pick up the domain, this database, and host this somewhere, keeping continuity going.
I've updated Lemmy to the current 0.14.5 release today - please let me know if you see any issues.
We're aware of federation issues to Pleroma & Mastodon and there's a couple of Lemmy bugs that have been reported regarding the issues.
Since Lemmy's 0.14.0 release a day or so ago, federation has been broken to other systems that had immediately upgraded (including lemmy.ml).
Now that we've upgraded, we should be on a path, according to their release notes, where we won't see this breakage again any time soon.
Here's hoping! Enjoy the new release.
If you've noticed that federated communities have stopped coming through to lemmy.ca, it's apparently due to known federation bugs that the Lemmy team is working on resolving for their 0.14 release.
However, after working through some logs today and posting to the Lemmy matrix chat, it sounds like they're going to push a 0.13.4 fix release (we're currently on 0.13.3) right away.
As mentioned in https://lemmy.ca/post/14086 there were some federation issues noticed recently. There was a fairly significant bug resolved in 0.13.0 so we've updated to that to ensure as good a service as possible.
As per https://lemmy.ml/post/83611 - there's now comment and post reporting enabled. As an admin, I get to figure out where the reports go, but I presume for now it's just to an admin.
The lemmy server process has been locking up at various points recently, sometimes to the point of no longer being able to service requests.
I don't know that it has anything to do with the latest version as the timing could just be coincidental, but, I have found some evidence that it's been too limited with it's file handles, so I've opened them up further.
Hopefully any apparent site outages stop at this point.
Happy after-Labour-Day Tuesday!
Lemmy 0.12 was released last week, and there's already been a couple of bugfix releases (part of why it's so good to have patience when a new software release that has major new features or rewrites come along).
So we've jumped to 0.12.2:
Announcement of lemmy 0.12: https://lemmy.ca/post/12783
Announcmeent of lemmy 0.12.1: https://lemmy.ca/post/12841
Release notes that include the 0.12.2 release: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/RELEASES.md
Updated to lemmy 0.10.3 today, which contains some bugfixes and tweaks. Much has occurred on the back-end so mostly out of sight for regular users.
If you notice any issues, please drop me a line!
