We just released a new patch which fixes an important federation problem. Due to a mistake in the code, activities were only sent out once, even if delivery failed (e.g. because the target instance is down, or a temporary connection issue). Instance admins should definitely upgrade.

This problem is fixed, so that failed deliveries are retried up to 9 times, with exponentionally increasing intervals. The only limitation now is that it will not keep retrying after Lemmy is restarted, but that case should be less common.

this isn’t the best data but it seems like on feddit we still don’t get federated likes. Other posts are like this as well.

I’m glad to know it’s not just my instance.

which instance is that btw?

Thanks a lot for this, I’ll be updating right away :D

I’m still having federation issues after the upgrade. At this point I wonder if it’s my firewall or something. I watch the lemmy logs when upvoting for example and my server doesn’t even see the request come in.

Damn, it looks like there are additional problems with federation. We will release 0.16 in the next days which will include additional logging, and allow me to debug this.

To rule out the firewall, the main thing you need to ensure is that POST requests to /inbox go through.
