Starting a phone call from the terminal on a Birch. This call is to the good old "Fröken ur" speaking-clock service telling us the current time in Swedish.

One of the things I've been personally looking for on the was USSD support in Calls. No need to wait anymore, as it was recently implemented by Mohammed Sadiq just in time for the Evergreen release :) @purism

Based on @craftyguy 's -sdl work i added cryptsetup-initramfs support to the 's image-builder so one can build encrypted images too.

SuperTuxKart played on a Librem 5 phone using an external keyboard and a 1080p TV. So this is this "mobile gaming" they keep talking about, huh? :D

0.6.0 is out 🚀 : source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-

Besides more fixes for docked mode, the most visible change is @exalm 's work to close apps by swiping up. This needs 1.0.2.

@purism

0.5.0 is out 🚀 : source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-

This adds more keybindings, "docked mode" (for usage with external screen/mouse/keyboard) and more fixes with multiple screens.

You need recent 0.4.4, 1.10.0 and git master (or backported fixes) for this to work.
