RT @0x8DEB
Ongeveer twaalf weken geleden kwam ik op het gekke idee om een API te bouwen met de informatie van van Volksvertegenwoordigers. Samen met enkele vrienden maakten we hiervan uiteindelijk ook het project voor ons vak (gegeven door @BartMesuere). 1/8

RT @Pieterjanvl
Dit lijkt me vreemd.
Iemand in een gevaarlijke buurt heeft zo minder recht op privacy. En zorgt dit niet voor bias? (als je in verhouding 3X een regio controleert, gaan de cijfers daar dan ook niet 3x hoger liggen?)

RT @Nextclouders
De Solid integratie in Nextcloud kan het begin van success voor Solid zijn, volgens de uitvinder van het web. De Tijd sprak met Mitzi László (Nextcloud) en Ruben Verborgh (Inrupt/Universiteit van Gent).

RT @braam_martijn
1.0 is released, bringing GPU acceleration for the preview and proper rotation support

#fluffychat 0.30.0 has been released today 🎉🎉🎉 with a big refactoring under the hood, a lot of bug fixes, better room alias management, minor design improvements, Linux desktop notifications aaaaaaaand Linux arm64 support. 🐧

In theory it should run on #pinephone or #librem5 but I have no device to test it. Anyone here who wants to try and send me screenshots? 🙂


We did it! We've just released #InfiniTime 1.0!

Please read the full announcement on the blog of @PINE64 (pine64.org/2021/04/22/its-time) and have fun with your #PineTime!

Release note : pine64.org/2021/04/22/its-time

What's new in this version : step counter, wake up on wrist rotation, UI redesign, more user settings, user settings stored in flash memory, and many more features and less bugs!

#megapixels running on a #purism #Librem5. Credits go to the devs who have been working on enabling the cameras on the #librem5

Did you know #postmarketOS supports a few smartwatches? Well, now you do!

However, up till now we didn't have a proper UI for them. Since I put a lot of work in the Mer stack to get it running for #Glacier, it was only a few more packages to get #AsteroidOS up and running on #postmarketOS as well!

Merge request coming in real soon!

Before I started working on #postmarketOS I was a (relatively happy) #SailfishOS user. However, after my Jolla Phone just became too slow for my taste I choose to move back to Android for my next phone rather than choosing another SFOS phone, and help out postmarketOS instead. The proprietary nature of SFOS scared me away.

I'm clearly not alone and this blogpost by our newest pmOS core team member lists a few reasons that also applied to me which is worth reading!

Geary 40 release candidate has been released, at long last! It is available to install as a nightly build for testing before the final release: wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/GetI

Please do test it out, and let us know if you find any show stoppers: wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/Repo


#Geary #GNOME

After months of working on this, we are proud to announce the second beta release of , based on 3.13! 😀 :postmarketos:


Here comes libadwaita! Read about our plans to make GNOME apps and GTK 4 even better, and about the future of libhandy: adrienplazas.com/blog/2021/03/

is pushing towards more for smartphones: 7 years of updates, open sourcing when support drops, public repair manuals and diagnostic tools. To reduce the horrible environmental impact of mainstream phones, we need all of this, yesterday!

"For ultimate flexibility, smartphone manufacturers should enable users to install alternative operating systems such as @e_mydata or PostmarketOS."


Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.

Boost if you get it ;)
