@martijnbraam I'd say awesome developers at Lima has done quite awesome job. From barely able to render wallpaper to proper and complete UI on GPU rendering. This is quite awesome work.

We have quite a few Ubuntu Touch apps flatpaked now. After the last build infrastructure problems are figured out they should be ready to use on Plasma Mobile.

I don't see a way for me to opt out of analytics being used, so the only option seems to be to move away from wordpress.com, which is something I can't promise to do anytime soon

Linux bros will tell you how great it is to have options and customizability and then tell you your software is unusable because you got the default wrong

About two months ago I decided to use my spare time to work on a Plasma Mobile/Kirigami podcast player. Mostly because I wanted to do a hobby project to learn qml. And also a bit because there seemed to be no (mobile) linux podcast players which were anywhere near what I wanted to see in a podcast player.

Two months later I suddenly find myself with developer access to KDE and a project under review for regular release through KDE / plasma mobile. 😃

I love the FOSS and KDE communities!

If you're going to shit on a FOSS project in public just don't. It achieves nothing of value but alienates the people putting hard work into it despite owing you nothing.

Oh, a post by developers talking about their new stuff, that's the perfect place to complain about some random padding issue

Also Khronos: "Ah, just sign this CLA before."

Also Khronos: "By the way, new extensions MUST have a test added to our test suite. Please send a patch for our private test suite repository you can't access because you're not a member."

Also Khronos: "By the way, the membership is $18,000."

Fucking Khronos.

i don't know about you, but i'm pretty sure most of my stress comes from the fact that fuckers like that are massively profiting from exploiting workers during a pandemic while tech bros are applauding their super deep aphorisms
