14K commits by 201 people since the last release! It’s been a lot of work but I think it’s a beautiful release. :-)
Found good vid about danmaku bullet patterns: https://invidio.us/watch?v=5COESs1_UyU
This is great article from BBC about huge mass surveillance system in Moscow: https://www.bbc.com/russian/features-52219260
- detect when you are at home or out of home
- detect where you are locating based on mobile geolocation
- detect when are you in subway (we have face recognition in much more places now)
- detect what sites you visit using public wifi networks

#GNU #Guix 1.1.0 release candidate available: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2020-04/msg00172.html Testing is a good way to help us, to try out a new GNU+#Linux distro, or simply to get into #freesoftware!
Gonna participate in lisp gamejam using Fennel and Love2d. I would like to use trivial-gamekit (and cl-bodge), but I'm not familiar with Common Lisp yet and basic setup doesn't work on my guix system.
I will try to make the mix of danmaku shooter and dungeon-crawler game. I don't have experience in gamedev and I lack math skills, but timespan is quite big, I hope I can handle it.
Join gamejam if you would like making games and lisp: https://itch.io/jam/spring-lisp-game-jam-2020
Looks like Leah couldn't solve financial problems. I'm thankful that I was able to buy librebooted thinkpad x200t on https://minifree.org. I hope he'll do fine and will bring more free software and free hardware to the world.
As alternatives libre hardware stores I can suggest:

Someone decomposed the app about Covid-19 situation from russian gov that tracks people movement. It is not limited by that, it sends telemetry using camera and tries to identify you. I think it also can look into your contact list. And the most important part -- it sends this info to russian gov site mos.ru without any encryption and mos.ru is not even using https. I guess there will be hard times for our privacy after coronavirus.
