#X2Go is in the middle of doing a series of upstream releases. X2Go Desktop Sharing has been entirely reworked. The X2Go Session Broker has been ported to Python3 and seen many bug fixes. All components with GUIs are finally on Qt5. As components get released upstream, I do my best in getting the stuff uploaded to #Debian early enough in time for upcoming Debian #buster. Install a Debian 9, upgrade/dist-upgrade to testing and give feedback via Debian BTS. Thanks!

Oh, we've got some #librem5 news! I'm excited to play with the dev kit. What should I do first with it?
Since I couldn't find some active FOSS community on matrix, I created a channel on my homeserver, feel free to join ;)
Purism has an update on their progress with the Librem 5. If you're considering getting one, new information for you!

Reminder: International Day Against DRM this September 18th
It's International Day Against DRM on Tuesday the 18th of September!
Many DRM-free e-book retailers have sales on the day, so keep an eye out for bargains. Libreture is involved too, and will have it's own special announcement to support DRM-free books.

We have a new progress report on the #Librem5
Looks like the #Librem5 will be pushed back 3 months for an estimated release date in April.
Had a feeling they wouldn't be able to keep to their January estimate, but still very much looking forward to how it'll pan out.
#fosstodon is probably the best online community I've been a part of so far. People here are really nice and doing a diverse range of interesting and creative things. One day we'll figure out how to put coffee in a RAID configuration.
Give yourselves a pat on the head.
Mastalab crashed and gave me the option of emailing a report. Even though it was a trivial problem I sent the email.
I just got a reply, half an hour later, saying it's fixed. 💛
My delight and surprise made me realize Google/birdsite/whatever had trained me out of reporting problems, by never responding or fixing anything.
The fediverse is different. You're much closer to humans who care about these things and are able to actually do stuff. It's worth reporting users, bugs, crashes.
Comcast rant Show more
Up and down every minute! Oh Comcast, I'm gonna write a script to calculate my internet uptime and send you automated emails. Google Fiber would apologize for downtime, detail the outage, and send me credit!
