Desktop is designed to make most use of 1366x768 resolution of my laptop.

There are 2 panels:
=> Top panel: grey, contains user's full name, time and system tray. User's name is replaced with Window action buttons (close, maximise, minimise) as well as global menu (files, edit, view, about etc) to save space
=> bottom panel: transparent, application menu, running and pinned app icons.

Both panels are pushed off screen when an app needs that space or goes full screen.

By the way, we also made snap to guide, grid and path work off-canvas now (pushed last night).

Now that off-canvas viewing is possible (since 2.10.14), we are progressively making working off-canvas just as easy as in-canvas.

LibreOffice is free software - but that's means more than just zero cost. It's about having the freedom to use, study, change and share the software. Learn more here: blog.documentfoundation.org/bl (Oh, and how many free software project logos do you recognise in this image?)

Good morning, it's a beautiful day to remember that most people barely have their *basic* human rights guaranteed AND there *are* ways to do that.

Hi everyone. I'm Allen.

I'm a professor in digital humanities, a recovering Classicist (where I nerd-ed out in ancient Greek literature), and a Linux hobbyist I suppose.

I'm particularly interested in the intersections of FOSS, privacy, edtech, and k-12 and higher ed.

I do a mix of teaching and work in data science, web development, literature, history, and culture. Egypt in the morning; R in the afternoon. I also tinker with retrotech and play saxophone from time to time.

The team is confident that cross-signing and QR verif is ready for the Big Release, and that e2e can be turned on by default in Matrix #fosdem 🤔

For you guys using nextcloud, I created a python script to fetch talk messages and send them via a gotify server, so you don't have to rely on google push notifications. It's by no means Production Ready, it still has a long TODO list. Maybe someone of you would like to contribute.

@debacle I've actually only played with it; it's more hackish than Conversations. I saw the announcement about calls (just voice, no?). Gajim seems to working on the same. I shouldn't hope but can't help it.

@nurinoas @Jami It's worth trying the dhtproxy. You can set one up yourself (though I haven't done this yet) or use theirs. Obviously, using theirs you give up some privacy.

@trawzified @pv Sadly, some news sites are making their RSS feeds harder to find or only making the first paragraph rather than the whole article available. Specific to news, I've RSS to be much more overwhelming, since you end up with hundreds of posts a day, whereas on Twitter one can follow individual journalist.
