With 2.0.3 we will introduce a special site which displays only your direct messages like it already is in and recommended in this NotABug Issue: but there's a important for you all about that: Should direct messages be filteres out of the home timeline and only displayed in the direct messages TL and notifications now or should the DM TL just be additional?Please answer here or in issue.Need your opinion

Many people had problems when installing because of a missing documentation and needed PHP extensions which weren't listed.Now we make more use of our Wiki page on NotABug and added detailed installation instructions as well as a troubleshooting page with the most common problems.You can view it here: If you find a mistake or want to add something,you can easily edit the wiki page.
