The @Solus 40 Stack Upgrade: Day 4 (Finale) stream recording is now up on my Odysee channel! You can check it out at odysee.com/@JoshStrobl:3/GNOME

GNOME 40 is still set to land in the stable repo on April 30th. So far testing in unstable has been going well!

Going live in about 1hr for final day of GNOME 40 Stack upgrade, which involves me pushing it to unstable. It's like watching paint dry, except you are forced to sit there and continuously fan the air to dry the paint. If that is your thing, go to twitch.tv/joshstrobl

Expecting to start landing the GNOME 40 stack upgrade into the @Solus unstable repository on Saturday! Assuming all goes to plan, should be in the stable repo on April 30th per our usual sync deferring during these sorts of upgrades!

About halfway done with a libwebkit-gtk build. Once that is done, it's streaming time!

(This one is a chonker that deserves the cores I typically "reserve" for stream encoding).

Aiming to go live in a couple hours (and for a few hours) for GNOME 40 (local) stack upgrades for @Solus 🎉 Just trying to get some early packages out of the way before I do that. Be sure to follow twitch.tv/joshstrobl and enable notifications to know when I go live!

Good morning from Finland. Just enjoying some coffee by a mostly frozen lake before going back to doing @Solus stuff.
