• Improved managing feeds for multi-user team blogs. When inviting a member, their author-specific RSS feed is added to their account.

  • Fixed allowing emoji in blog titles.

  • There’s a new beta of Epilogue for iOS with a crash fix on iPad. We’ve been working on a new Discover screen in the app to find books people are reading.

  • Increased the maximum text length of standalone pages.

  • We added a delay to the new user profile popups, so they are less likely to get in the way while moving the mouse over the timeline.

  • Added profile popovers to Micro.blog on the web. Hover the mouse over someone’s profile photo to get a quick look at their full name, bio, web site, and link to follow them.

  • Micro.blog for macOS has been updated with these changes:

    • Fixed dragging files from the Finder to the Uploads screen, which accidentally broke in the last version.
    • Fixed extra space at top of books list.
  • Micro.blog 2.5.3 for macOS is now available. This is a bug fix release with a bunch of fixes. Check out this page in the Help Center for a download link and release notes.

  • Fixed creating new categories from XML-RPC API for apps like MarsEdit.

  • Fixed an issue with the first reply from Mastodon to a post on Micro.blog not correctly threaded into the conversation.

  • Improved JSON API for /posts/discover/books to include book ISBN and cover URL.

  • Updated Micro.blog for macOS with improvements to the Day One export and a bug fix.

    • Changed the newsletter subscribers list to hide the email addresses by default. You can click to export the list or use a blank search to show them.
    • Fixed margins in the theme template editor.
    • Fixed not showing publishing status for some blog changes.
    • Fixed showing publishing status at top of screen because we have the new lower-right status bubble now.
  • Added a new “Publishing changes” status bubble to the lower-right corner of the web browser page when Micro.blog is still publishing a new blog post to your site. If a post takes longer than a few seconds to publish, this makes it more clear that Micro.blog is still working on it.

  • Added experimental support for excluding a user profile page from being indexed by search engines. If you’d like this enabled for your account, email help@micro.blog, because there’s no visible setting for it yet.

  • Added new Photos tab to Find Plug-ins page as a quick way to find photo-related plug-ins. It’s currently equivalent to searching “photo” in the title or description.

  • Fixed bug preventing some plug-in screenshots from loading thumbnail versions in Micro.blog.

  • Rolled out a few changes this weekend:

    • Improved keeping track of photo metadata for test blogs and blogs that are not added to the Micro.blog timeline.
    • Fixed wrapping of Gists in the posts web admin.
    • Fixed some other edge case errors with invalid URLs.
  • Fixed some issues with book cover URLs and Micropub errors when creating new very long categories.

  • Fixed some inconsistencies in the dark mode version of Micro.blog on the web, for popup menu highlighting and divider lines.

  • Added a new photos_with_metadata field to the front matter available for processing with themes and Micro.blog plug-ins. There are 3 fields in each item: url for the photo URL, width, and height.

  • Added blog post versions to keep track of previous versions of a blog post when it’s saved. Micro.blog will keep these extra copies for 60 days. It’s designed as a simple, short-term backup in case something is edited or deleted that needs to be restored.
