Hello there! 0.21 is almost out. We've published our first release candidate this morning, and we encourage you to try it.

All the instructions to test it can be found at governance.funkwhale.audio/d/S (and you can also share your feedback / issues there)

If everything goes well, we should have a proper release published around April 21 🎉

Dear , we're about to release a new version in ~10 days. We've pushed the new translation strings to translate.funkwhale.audio/proj, and we'd really appreciate it if you could have a look at it ❤️

We've also updated our Weblate instance to the latest release, to ensure you have the best translation experience.

If you you're not a translator yet, but want to help, you can get started at contribute.funkwhale.audio/gui

Thank you so much!
