There's a fairly new development in fedi software, that I haven't seen discussed by the people I follow here.
Akkoma is a hard fork from Pleroma, and is very much going its own way. To quote from the blog post announcing the project:
> Pleroma has ever been an uneasy alliance between “free speech” people and free software people, and as the project’s creator aligned more with the former group over time, it was only really a matter of time before something acted as a catalyst to break the alliance.
It's been a bit more than a month, and the project looks like it's going to do fine. It's distinguished by a focus on personal expression, better moderation/federation tools (to keep the gross bits of fedi at bay), and a focus on community instances as opposed to single-user instances.
