New release candidate for the next minor version is out! As any release candidate, we hope it doesn’t contain any bugs, but it very well might do. If you have any general feedback, feel free to submit it here (bug reports, as usual, are preferred on GitHub).

The focus of this release is the long awaited upgrade to ActivityPub.
We are planning to follow up the 1.6 release very quickly with 2.0, which, as a breaking change, will stop delivering private toots over OStatus.
If you are a translator, the release candidate phase usually lasts about a week. If nothing goes wrong for a week, it becomes a finished release. We don’t wait for any particular translations, unless you ask us to. If you are planning to add translations and need more than a week, let me know.
