It's been a while since a Pinafore update! The master branch is deployed to dev.pinafore.social though, so you can try it out there. The next update should include things like:
- a "reply all" icon to identify threads
- list of mentioned users in CW'ed posts
- smarter network timeouts for offline mode

The next dawn, as the shepherd lead the flock out, she noted there were now two unicorns - one considerably smaller than the other.
For generations after, the wool from that farm was exceptional.

There's a Richard Stallman message for every occasion.
Like, is it a standard? An idea? Or a library of some sort? To me it looks like something you implement yourself within your own code and make it work that way.
Perhaps I'm wrong, I dunno. Just ifnd it weird that theres no libraries out there!
