Today #Owncast released v0.0.8 focusing on chat. It lays ground work to allow us, and 3rd parties (including you!), to add more features going forward. Now users have persistent identity, allowing you to build much cooler things. It also means you can ban people.
Take a look at our release notes at https://owncast.online/releases/owncast-0.0.8/ to learn more.
Also, our next Owncast call is Thursday, the 19th, 1PM Pacific, so mark your calendar, and I'll send more details later.
