Release Notes for ActivityPub Application 1.7.2

Last modified by Vincent Massol on 2021/04/06

This is the release notes for ActivityPub Application 1.7.2.

This is a bugfix release that fixes two issues discovered on ActivityPub Application 1.7.1.
The first one is related to the compatibility with Mastodon v3.3.0. Starting from this version Mastodon has a check on a Digest header on the actions received on the actor's inboxes.
The second bugfix addresses an issue with the updates of the followed users list after a follow action, where the list was always empty after submitting a follow request.

New and Noteworthy (since ActivityPub Application 1.7.1)
