With phoc being a phone compositor and touchscreen being a primary input device, mouse pointer handling has been a bit neglected - but it's going to change soon! Fixing some pointer-related bugs and adding quality of life improvements in :) @purism

With latest updates, GNOME Web (Epiphany) can play YouTube videos on the Librem 5, so you won't have to switch to Firefox to do that anymore. And you won't believe where the bug was located[1]! ;) Call `sudo apt install gstreamer1.0-libav` or wait a few days until it's installed by default with the next update and enjoy. @purism

[1] it was in glibc...

Ok, maybe it's not that impressive for a regular person in 2020, but right now I'm playing Neverball in VR mode using cardboard headset with fully FLOSS GL driver (etnaviv) on a GNU/Linux phone (Librem 5) and it's damn amazing! :D @purism

Librem 5 phone + Steam Controller + TV + Polish Radio Experimental Studio + couch

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

@purism ...and here's Kao Challengers played in PSP emulator (PPSSPP) at 3 times the original resolution. All on free software drivers! :)

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
@purism

Just made my first mobile payment with my bank app straight from the Librem 5 - via Anbox. The last reason to occasionally boot an Android phone just went poof! :)

Kao the Kangaroo works pretty well under PPSSPP on the Librem 5 :D

Thanks to @exalm taking care of Webkit's packaging, Epiphany's GPU acceleration can now work on the ! Before (no acceleration) and after (GPU accelerated):

Librem 5 phone + USB keyboard + USB touchpad + Bluetooth speaker + HDMI screen + Firefox + YouTube video

External screen, keyboard and mouse attached to my phone running my favorite IDE - Qt Creator. Looking forward to try this setup on the first post-pandemic game jam :D @purism

...and finally Animatch, written by yours truly :) Mali400 does around 20 FPS, while GC7000L manages nice 60 FPS (although it drops with lots of particles on screen, but that's on the game's code I'd say :D)

That's of course a pretty heavy track, on lighter ones the difference is smaller (but still noticeable)

PS. It's hard to steer two karts at the same time :)

6 hours 7 minutes of idle time with modem on and fully reachable on Birch! That'd be about 10h for Dogwood's battery!

The only caveat: SD card reader needs to be disabled (for now). Power management comes together pretty nicely on the Librem 5! :)

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!

That's how the Librem 5 performs with all the GPU acceleration in place :) @purism
