libhandy 1.0.0 released. 🎉

We released it a bit in advance to let application maintainers update their submodules in time for the GNOME 3.38.0 release. 😀 That being said, we expect distros to ship libhandy as any other regular stable library. 😉

By demanding encryption backdoors, Politicians are not asking us to choose between security and privacy. They are asking us to choose no security. Here's why: tutanota.com/blog/posts/why-a-
We must fight encryption backdoors around the world. 💪 #privacy #HumanRight

If you think that Linux can move to GitHub or GitLab and still be productive at scale, I want you to read through the MAINTAINERS file in the root of the Linux source tree.

git.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/linux/tree

Every one of those entries has a dedicated maintainer in charge of it, applying to a subset of the source tree. All 3,000 of them. Many of these have dedicated external trees, mailing lists, and policies. Almost all of this development happens away from the LKML. Each of those trees has a path upwards towards Linus's tree, often via other trees and other maintainers, or towards the -lts trees. These trees are not necessarily authoritative either, and the kernel you're running might be its own upstream maintained by your Linux distro, unique from any of the releases on kernel.org.

All of it is based on email. And it *works* to drive the most efficient and largest-scale open-source project in history.

I've never found much interest in emojis personally (you might be able to tell?😋️), but it's useful hype.

Because people did seem to like them even before Apple et al started hyping them (they were always available on 🇯🇵️japanese virtual keyboards), and it encourages western software developers to implement full Unicode support and complex text rendering.

Today I wish to describe how Gtk implements a UI for entering these emojis into your text, available from it's dropdown menu.

Naturally the new design still works great in Lynx

And pretty good on Mosaic, if you run it through mitmproxy to unwrap the SSL

Reflecting on writing a funding pitch for Hephaestus, I got a bit scared thinking through how much work it'll take and arguing that it is in fact a feasable project. It was only very recently I thought it might be! Before that I knew I had to try...

I don't feel a need to ask for funding for Rhapsode or Odysseus, those are nearing done. Though I would appreciate donations to liberapay.com/alcinnz , I just updated that page!

Aus gegebenem Anlass möchte ich nochmal auf die Studie hinweisen, dass die GKV um 145€/Jahr günstiger werden würde, wenn man die PKV abschaffen würde.

Die Studie kam dummerweise im Februar 2020 raus und konnte pandemignoriert werden. manager-magazin.de/politik/deu
