See you soon!
Hi friends and foes, what.
There's been a lot of questions about #ForkTogether and yes, it's been on ice, and quite dead.
After 6 months, and a few spokes in the wheel, I'm taking back my rejection of any managerial positions, and getting my hands dirty.
More info to follow soon™
hey, in case you didn't know already @funkwhale is looking at setting up their org as a Non-profit.
@eliotberriot reached out to me in regards to diversity concerns, but I'm not the right person to answer those questions.
If any of you are though, feel free to reach out to him here, or check out their discussion here:
You can browse tens of thousands of music tracks that are legal to download and share at:
Open.audio specialises in #CreativeCommons tracks and other #Libre music, much of it from the Free Music Archive (http://freemusicarchive.org/). The FMA has been under threat recently, so open.audio is a sort of lifeboat for the content.
We now have a handful of Funkwhale instances with open registrations running on the 0.18 version!

Let me introduce the brand new #Funkwhale Network page!
It's a magical place where you can:
- Browse data about the network
- Submit your instance for inclusion in the statistics
Collected data is made available at https://network.funkwhale.audio/dashboards/. More dashboards will come in the future, but you can already have an idea of the number of instances, active users, and the growth!
If you own an instance, simply visit https://network.funkwhale.audio/ to have it included :)
If you like what you see, want to support our work and can spare a buck or two, remember we have a donation page at https://opencollective.com/funkwhale!
Apart from those visible features, there are countless enhancements and fixes that will improve user experience:
- Audio progress bar gives more feedback about what's going on (loading, playing, etc.)
- Support for multi-disc albums
- Huge performance improvements on the front-end (loading time, data usage, reactivity, etc.)
- Lots of accessibility improvements (especially for the player)
- Better results returned when searching
I'm going to highlight some of the changes in the release in a thread.
First of all, #Funkwhale Naomi includes three new exciting features:
- Storing displaying licensing information about uploaded tracks
- Embedding tracks and albums on third party websites via an iframe (and oembed)
- Transcoding of audio files to support a wider range of browsers and clients
- Instance-level controls to understand and change the way your instance federates with other instances and accounts
TanukiTunes is now on @funkwhale 0.18. Thanks to the team for their stellar work on this!
#Funkwhale 0.18 “Naomi” is out!
And it's huge (check out the changelog if you don't trust me ;)
This release is dedicated to Naomi, an early contributor and beta tester of Funkwhale. Her positivity, love and support have been incredibly helpful and helped shape the project as you can enjoy it today. Thank you so much Naomi <3
Bon, ça a l'air de passer avec ma connexion en mousse d'aujourd'hui, donc le stream de la release de #Funkwhale démarrera d'ici 20 à 30 minutes sur https://www.twitch.tv/eliotberriot. Stream en Français à moi qu'il y ait une forte demande pour l'anglais :)
I'll be streaming the 0.18 release on https://www.twitch.tv/eliotberriot starting in 30 minutes. I plan to do it in french unless there is an actual demand for english ;)
