The Gnome-Control-Center (aka g-c-c, aka "the settings app") is a pretty central piece of mobian. In our unstable distribution we have now upgraded it from 3.36 to 3.38, which fixes a whole bunch of bugs. (the now working wifi-hotspot via GUI is my personal favorite). Thanks to all contributors!

@talkpine @Ezra @linmob Thanks for the kind words for Kasts! Good to know that someone else also likes it. :)

... and yes, it should be smoothly scrubable. Even from the lock screen or from the media controls.

In the eighth episode of , @Ezra and @linmob discuss news on the keyboard accessory, InfiniTime 1.0, progress, 1.0 and answer three community questions. They also share their minty-fresh first impressions of Pine-y wrist-wear.

Kudos to @NGIZero for the funding of my work 😋

I was hoping to publish the progress report for March and April today, but that will happen tomorrow, just like 008.

I did add a lot of appdata.xml/metainfo.xml links though, which is vital for the future of /#LinuxPhoneApps.

Another change, that I made happen today is working appstream:// links on linmobapps.frama.io/. Now, if you tap one of these links, software like Discover or GNOME Software may pop up and allow you to install the app right away!

Worked on adding a listview style for the app drawer! I personally prefer the larger touch areas entries in lists over grids.

@normandc @be @jalcine Not sure what you guys are saying, Flatpak is available on pmOS. It's just not preinstalled by default. `apk add flatpak` and then the usual `flatpak install <whatever>` (or do it via the graphical software stores even) work just fine.

one step closer to a working Matrix client: Fractal-next now sends text messages 😎
