Also in #fedbox, the generic #ActivityPub service, we have now better handling of BCC and Bto fields, which are used by for generating the public timelines.

Sketched out what I think would be a fun alife system to test genetic programs in this morning, and most importantly, fun to watch. If only I had time to explore it... I definitely don't, though.
