The newest game I've been working on, ODGŁOS, is finally available to play! A cute owl, the history of electronic music, shapeshifting snakes and intergalactic journeys inside the Polish Radio Experimental Studio - all in a stop-motion interactive story :) You'll need a browser, headphones and 30 minutes to spare. Have fun!

Being used to working with no ready-made engine this gives me very ambivalent feelings:
1. Yaaay, I can do this without fully understanding how it works underneath! Prototyping is so quick!
2. Oh no, I don't fully understand how it works underneath! Debugging is so hard!
But at least one could already play stuff like Animatch or Neverball at full res on the phone with no glaring issues.
Today, while still not ready to become the default (almost!), SDL got bunch of those missing parts filled in - mostly by Ethan Lee. I've managed to find and fix some bugs this time as well. So, grab SDL 2.0.16, test and enjoy its refreshed Wayland backend while it's hot!
More info on the Wayland backend state (by Ethan): https://icculus.org/finger/flibitijibibo
Back in 2018, putting SDL's Wayland backend into shape was part of my first project done for @purism. Before that you couldn't really use it without expecting it to crash; it was outdated and lacked support for basic stuff like high DPI screens. Got it to work well enough for basic use-cases back then (even fixing some compositor bugs in the process), but it was still pretty bare bones with tons of features missing and the rest held by duct tape.

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 🔋) .
Just published Google lawsuit evidence indicates that like always retained users' location data, even if disabled in user interface, to the extent that its own employees flashed LineageOS on their phones to avoid tracking. Full thread on https://twitter.com/jason_kint/status/1398353211220807682
