Some exciting additions coming in today's v0.6 release, including support for SQLite, and an optional public timeline for your instance, à la @readwriteas.

Just opened a pull request for SQLite support on , meaning no more hassle setting up a separate database to run it. Would love any help reviewing and testing this big change!

Heh, this is pretty much what I imagined the "local timeline" on WF being -- a cross between a directory of users who wanted to be listed on it, and a stream of the most recent posts from them. mastodon.social/@Gargron/10119

Have been so caught up with development that I forgot to mention some of the improvements and fixes recently deployed on Write.as:

- Federation with works now 🎉
- Fixed RSS feeds for "Novel" formatted blogs
- Fixed em dashes and some other glyphs in the default font, Lora
- Moving an anonymous post to a federation-enabled blog now federates that post
- The API now accepts a `created` value when publishing a post -- great for maintaining post dates while importing posts

It's Release Monday! A new version, 0.3, is out now!

This includes a ton of stability improvements, as well as new features like an admin dashboard.
