Starting in a few minutes, I'm going to be doing some server maintenance for our instance and upgrading to Mastodon 2.8.0. 🤞
We're back up, and everything looks fine. Let me know if you notice anything not working properly.
Here's a changelog for the new version: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.8.0
Makerdon is a Mastodon instance focused on Makers, Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and STEM/STEAM. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is a likely topic as well. If you're interested in making things, allowing others to build on your work, and/or teaching others about making things, you might like this instance.
