Happy to announce the first service pack of v21.03! 🎉
Users who have this release installed can upgrade to it with the usual mechanisms (GNOME Software, KDE Discover, or apk upgrade -a).
I wonder if there is an official date for the release of #BigBlueButton v2.3 planned. Is there?
Background: I need to upgrade one of my bbb servers as it's still on #ubuntu 16.04 - and is announced to be EOL at the end of this month. Although 2.3-dev runs pretty well, it would be great to go directly for bbb-2.3 final.
Btw. - the improvements in v2.3 are a huge step forward and highly appreciated, it runs really pretty fine on my test server since the early alpha versions.

Just watched this interesting talk from 2016 that gives good arguments for quitting social media:
Given today's times of the pandemic, such a step might sound drastic. Yet, I think the world could be a much better place if more people would use the time they lose on social media to do something more meaningful.
You have a #pinebookpro and ...
- want to run a stable version of #debian or #devuan,
- want to use only official mainline versions of kernel and u-boot without unofficial patches,
- don't want to use non-free software / proprietary blobs,
- don't want to use unofficial 3rd party repos?
Meanwhile, most of this is achievable. I've collected some bits of information on that and condensed them in an article I recently posted on my personal website:
Photo of the result:
Starting from a charge with 86% it lasted more than 4 days. Not surprisingly, the device's case remained cool during this time.
Although this is not as good as what you get from most Android devices (such as my Galaxy S3 running #replicant), I'm still very impressed about this progress. Many thanks to all who contributed to make this a reality!
Is anyone of you into RISC-V?
Finally, it looks like there is a (first?) MiniITX mainboard powered by a RISC-V CPU planned to be available in March 2021:
I would probably miss SATA on this one, yet I wonder if this is already usable in production, e.g. for a home server. Also, getting concrete data on power consumption would be very interesting.
@PINE64 Will there be chances to get revisions newer than 1.2b of the mainboard for braveheart / ubports owners at this special price? Or is this a "do it now or never" thing?
@postmarketOS I was wondering what the current state of your -stable channel is. The message in pmbootstraps says
> stable: Stable release channel (first beta v20.05, does not have many devices yet)
So does this mean it is still in beta? Or was it in beta in May this year and has steadily improved since then?

Wow, the Pine A64 LTS from @PINE64 draws less than 0.8 Watts in idle with network connected! This is impressive for a 64bit ARM Quadcore SoC with 2 GiB of RAM and gigabit ethernet.
I just feel sooo cheated spending 50 cents for the additional aluminium heatsink. ;-)
And best of all - this is while running #devuan with the stock and rock-stable kernel 4.19.
As a side note, migrating my installation from another hardware was as easy as reflashing u-boot and swapping the sdcard.
