#Fractal, the #matrix client for #GNOME, will release version 4.4 next Friday. Now is a good time to test the nightly version and check if it doesn’t break anything with your homeserver compared to 4.2. #translations are also welcome.

Georges Basile Stavracas Neto is a great contributor to no less than @gnome Shell, Mutter, Calendar, To Do, and Settings.

He will be streaming a live coding session when hacking about To Do.

The goal of the session is to hack around a new Inbox view.

The session is scheduled for Saturday, stay tuned!


I just can't get over how great StreetComplete is. It looks fantastic, is incredibly easy to use, and actually makes it fun to contribute data about the Real World for the benefit of everyone.

If you run Android, be sure to give it a try: github.com/westnordost/StreetC #OpenStreetMap #StreetComplete

I updated my blog post about how to navigate and work in the @element_hq desktop and mobile apps and the @matrixdotorg federated network using a screen reader. Updated to the new branding, better grammar, less spelling errors. #a11y marcozehe.de/how-to-use-elemen

Just received my @nitrokey FIDO2 and I can't believe how smooth the experience is. Tested it on Linux & Windows and it was just Plug&Play

We need a cultural shift in libre software, we need to name things and quit talking of "developers".

We need:
- Designers to think of how the project can elegantly solve actual problems
- Devs to share technical feasibility and make the software
- Translators so anyone can use it
- A feedback team to protect devs & designers from harrassment and show progress
- A community to use the project, give feedback, accept their opinion is not universal, and pay for what it uses. Everyone needs to eat.

I wrote about some of the ongoing GNOME Shell UX work: blogs.gnome.org/shell-dev/2020

There's some very cool stuff cooking in GNOME Shell land, stay tuned!

How to hide your homophobia:

1) Declare LGBTQ issues as 'political'.
2) Declare that 'political' things shouldn't be discussed.
3) ???
4) No profit. Homophobia benefits no one.

The @gnome lawsuit is over, and looks like a win for Free Software: gnome.org/news/2020/05/patent-

Sometimes the day does start with good news :blobcatcoffee:

We’re incredibly excited to welcome @automattic@twitter.com, creators of @WordPress@twitter.com, to the Matrix ecosystem with a strategic investment of ~$5M into @NewVectorHQ@twitter.com to support Matrix development and embrace decentralisation!

The latest #darktable #flatpak rolls lensfun back to a known working version of 0.3.2, but adds a mechanism to update the lens profiles when the flatpak is built.

João Vieira's adaptive metronome app is now available on Flathub!

I contributed some design ideas for the layout and the app icon, so I'm very happy to finally see it released :)


Ooops. I did it again. Backported filmic v4 colour science to the channel mixer and added a more accurate white balance adjustment in it, with gamut mapping options, so you get all your camera colour calibration in one place to start a clean editing pipeline :

What if—just a thought—we didn’t bludgeon gender stereotypes into our children literally from infancy?

Just tested flatseal, an app to modify flatpak permissions, and it is extremly helpful.
Thanks alot, @tchx84

So today we announce that thanks to a partnership with @Fairphone we have been able to port /e/OS to the Fairphone 3, and that we can now sell /e/-Fairphone 3 in the EU!
