Should you leave Twitter? Mastodon enters version 4.0


The decentralized social network Mastodon just upgraded to version 4.0.0 to become an even more potent rival to Twitter.

Mastodon continues its path while Twitter remains in a state of disarray. The decentralized network gains new users and is upgraded to version 4.0.0.

Mastodon 4.0.0 includes various new features and corrections, such as safety on all levels. The ability to translate posts, follow hashtags, and choose a language for trend displays will be mentioned first. The abundance of various filtration systems is also increasing, as is the variety of posts, which may now comprise new sorts ( WebP, Wave, AVIF, HEIC ).

Now, the online interface and the mobile application may be used to modify posts. When registering, a server’s rules are now shown. New icons and other minor cosmetic adjustments help the interface as a whole.

Directors will like the ability to create users’ positions since there have only ever been three preset jobs available ( user, moderator, and admin ). Enough to increase the given rights’ flexibility. Webhooks and other elements are also accessible via the administrator interface.

On GitHub, the components of this version, 4.0.0, are all listed. Furthermore, it is said that the NGI0 Discovery fund funds a portion.
