What's cooking in the Pleroma 1.0.5 maintenance release?
We are approaching the end of the merge window for the 1.0.5 release of Pleroma, which will likely be cut next Tuesday (August 13). I have been trying to aim for bi-weekly updates to the Pleroma releases, so that communities tracking stable have the latest security fixes as well as minimally impacting feature additions.
How to get features into the stable release branch?
As the stable release branches are largely frozen, you have to request that a feature be included into the
master branch. Stable releases are always cut from
master. To do so, open an issue on the Pleroma gitlab or comment on the relevant MR so that a maintainer may tag it with a backport request.
When cutting new releases, a branch is created, such as
release/1.0.5, which contains the proposed release. Users are encouraged to test this branch and report on whether any problems exist in the proposed release. These branches contain manual backports done by me at the time of preparing the release, and build on any backports done by others to
master, so tracking
master instead of a release tag will also get you some of the backports if they are done using the process of using an MR and feature branch for the backport.
Pleroma reports follower/following counts as 0 in the ActivityStreams 2.0 representations when the user requests to hide their social network. This change adjusts the Mastodon API responses to also return 0 when this setting is enabled.

Mastodon API: Return profile URL when available instead of actor URI for MastodonAPI mention URL by @Thib@social.sitedethib.com
Return the profile URL specified in the actor object instead of the actor's IRI when possible in Mastodon API responses. This makes our behaviour consistent with how Mastodon returns profile URLs.

Correctly style anchor tags in templates so they match the rest of the template design.
Pleroma's current internal representation (IR) uses a split log of activities (the
activitiestable) and underlying AS2 objects (the
objectstable). For storage efficiency, the IR refers to child objects by their stable IRI when stored in the IR. In some cases, updates of child objects would result in the child object being re-embedded in the parent activity.
Strip IR-specific fields including
likes from incoming and outgoing activities by @firstname.lastname@example.org
In some cases, IR fields would be shared with peer instances. This caused occasional problems, as some of the IR fields would be serialized in ways that would be inappropriate. Accordingly, we remove all IR-specific vocabulary from incoming and outgoing activities before processing them further.

Previously, MRF rejections would be logged to the error log as a crash. This allows for MRF rejections to be more gracefully handled.
