As of todays #linux-next (https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tag/?h=next-20210112) you can run the #librem5devkit without any additional patches using the default mainline arm64 #defconfig. This means distributions can enable it without trouble from #linux 5.12 onwards. The #librem5 itself needs some more work but it builds a lot on what we have for the devkit.

Libadwaita 1.0.0-alpha.2 is out!
It comes with a brand new flat and stylesheet whose accent color is settable by the app devs! 🌈
See our alpha.1→alpha.2 guide: https://gnome.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/libadwaita/doc/main/migrating-between-development-versions.html
Or start porting from GTK 3 and libhandy: https://gnome.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/libadwaita/doc/main/migrating-libhandy-1-4-to-libadwaita.html
Debian bullseye reaches final milestone and is now fully frozen! https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2021/07/msg00002.html
phosh 0.12.1 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.12.1
This mostly brings the bug fixes by @dos and yours truly into a release, updates translations and also no longer claims the accelerometer when automatic rotation is off (making iio-sensor-proxy sleep a lot more, helps 🔋) .
Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!
@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.
If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!
If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇
In order to handle incoming phone calls on #phosh's lock screen I initially started out with a copy of #calls's code since #calls and phosh need to act on different call objects.
But there was so much duplication so I moved the widgets (originally written by @rah and @KekunPlazas ) into #libcall-ui (meant to be used as a git submodule).
As of today it builds it's documentation using gi-docgen (https://www.bassi.io/articles/2021/03/17/more-documentation-changes/) at https://gitlab.gnome.org/guidog/libcall-ui/pages
My recent work on mouse and touch pad configuration (https://social.librem.one/@agx/106408337604589298) made it into #phoc 0.8.0 (https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phoc/-/tags/v0.8.0) released by @dos yesterday. Also contained is the idle fix needed for #gtk4 apps (https://social.librem.one/@agx/106551704433480573)
phosh 0.12.0 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.12.0
- Only enable proximity sensor during calls
- Unblank screen on incoming calls
- encrypted volume mounts via org.Gtk.MountOperationHandler
- Show adaptive only apps in mobile mode (this is toggleable in the UI and configurable via GSetting)
On my quest to land some more pending #phosh merge requests I finally reworked the mode based app filtering (https://social.librem.one/@agx/105004293674500101) so only docked mode shows all apps by default while only adaptive ones are shown in mobile mode.
This can be toggled manually via a button and also disabled completely via a #gsetting . Mobile mode gets more tidy this way (and you can always white list individual apps).
Today I learned (https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/issues/563#note_161059) that you can bring up the App Search bar on Phosh to launch another app with Super-a.
This is really helpful when using your Phosh running device with a hardware keyboard, e.g. for #convergence.
