A myriad of new features have been added to Tuba, the terrific open source Mastodon client for Linux I took a look at a few months ago.

Avid fans of this Fediverse-friendly app will find that Tuba 0.3.x is crammed with new features, functionality, and refinements, including support for custom emoji (server dependent), language selection in the composer, image preview zooming, and more.

Additionally, the performance of the app is notably improved. The app feels less lethargic on startup (to me, at least) than it did with in previous builds.
