Thanks to the awesome work of @alexeymin, Discover now supports #apk (the Alpine Linux package manager)! Coming soon in a @postmarketOS edge upgrade near you, and also the upcoming v21.03 release!

I've received my #PinePhone #KDE community edition today, and I'm quite impressed by the hardware and software, congratulations to everybody involved!

Update is necessary immediately, as I was not able to close an app before it, but once it's done it's working well.

So this year I'll try to find time to port the #Libervia #XMPP client on #FOSS mobile OSes.

It was obvious but just saying again, @kde @plasmamobile does not have any control over what you can or can not install on your phone. ❤️

You might have read that Angelfish now has a built-in ad blocker. Today I wrote down how the implementation was done, since it involves Rust code in a C++ project:

More Xmas presents from KDE: Say hello to NeoChat, the new instant messaging app for the Matrix network. Find out how it works on mobile and desktops, learn about its cool features and how you can contribute to its success in the launch announcement.

Plasma Mobile news for Nov./Dec.: Across the board improvements to notifications and apps, a theme that increases speed while reducing RAM usage, chat with the NeoChat app and surf the web with a stabler Angelfish that includes a new ad-blocker.

I just added a new feature to NeoChat, a Kirigami based @matrix client. Now we have a fancy (but still simple) image editor build-in.

Pre-Orders for the #PinePhone KDE Community edition are open! Get a glimpse of the future of free and open mobile phones, experiment with all the new features, and help us turn #PlasmaMobile into a mature mobile OS.
