After long months of doing only bugfix and security releases, we are finally releasing the long-awaited 1.0 release. No more nines!
As you may already know, Pleroma is high-performance and low-resource fediverse server mean to run even on small devices like a Raspberry Pi.
Still, there is one part of Pleroma that is wasteful to the extreme…
So where did we go wrong? I think the problem goes way back. We made a deal with the Devil when we accepted free-form HTML into our systems. The best solution is to not make this mistake anymore, and go back to the future to a better alternative.
And that’s why, today, I’m announcing Gopher support for Pleroma!
In my last few posts I talked a bit about Pleroma. Since then, we had a lot of questions about what Pleroma is, how it is different from GNU Social and Mastodon, why you should use it and so on. This post will be an introduction to Pleroma, so read on if you are interested.
