New SoC has been chosen for the next generation of SBCs, the Rockchip RK3566 and it sounds like a very nice choice. Lots of IO built in and up to 8GB RAM! Oh and even has a built in eink interface :-O.

I have to reiterate how incredible this @starlabsltd@twitter.com Star LabTop Mk IV is. Running stock @elementary@twitter.com OS 5.1 out of the box. Extremely smooth trackpad—both physically and in software. Exceptional packaging, unboxing experience, and hardware quality. Super solid and well-built.

Are there any PeerTube clients for iOS?

A package I discovered today: pkgsrc.se/pkgtools/rc.d-boot
