accessibility, all developers read this 

You as a developer need to test and improve your applications support for assistive technologies. The simplest way to do this is to install Orca or NVDA and use your application as normal with a keyboard. If you want advice on this, please direct message me to ask me questions about improving your applications.

I'm currently working on a new version of the F-Droid Privileged Extension which will work on unrooted phones using Androids Device Owner mode. Requires adb though.

There'll probably also be a seperate version which uses a root install mode instead of requiring install as a system app.

⚠️ #Mastodon v3.1.2 is out with an important security fix:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Likewise, v3.0.2 and v2.9.4 have been released to port this fix to older versions.

For those looking for a floss archive manager for android this supports creating and extracting zip, tar.xz and 7z archives and can additionally extract tar.gz files. Hit the little clipboard icon that pops up after selecting the archive to extract and it'll output the files into the current folder

Friendly reminder that we use A LOT of pretty cool open-source/free software projects and tools for Funkwhale (both the app itself and our collective).

If you cannot support us directly, supporting these projects is a good way to help us on the long run!

After two years of not using Facebook - I logged in today to check out this new tool that shows what Facebook has been tracking. Despite this, they have seen my every move on the Internet - this is creepier than I had imagined.

🎉 First release candidate for #Mastodon 3.1.0 is out for testing:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

There are security-related fixes, improvements of admin functions like search by IP, announcements, bookmarks, and more.

This morning I quickly built an Android app that allows to handle Twitter and YouTube links[1] to transform them into #Nitter and #Invidious links. Then it delegates the action to another app of your device.

It's open source.

Project: framagit.org/tom79/nitterizeme

The app is ready to be published on #Fdroid but I will proceed to more tests. You can use the debug apk.

LibreOffice 6.4 is nearly here – and in the meantime, our documentation community has been updating the guides! For instance, the guide for the Math module is already available: blog.documentfoundation.org/bl

Sonos states on their website that "sustainability is non-negotiable," and that they design products to minimize impact, but I work at an e-waste recycler and have demonstrable proof this is false.

Sonos's "recycle mode" intentionally bricks good devices so they can't be reused.
