Fun fact - the biggest difference comes from this single commit: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/commit/57e354c297e1703079c2bc6fb51211b24d884ac3
Then the new "ngl" renderer and fixes in the Wayland backend boost the performance even further.
#phosh 0.9.0 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.9.0
Now supports #GNOME's OSD DBus protocol, indicates microphone hardware kill switch state, fixes around the overview including long-swipes. Requires libhandy >= 1.1.90
Using the CPU we take 300% of CPU time, using the VPU instead we take 10% (and even that can be optimized further). Using the VPU also saves ~1.5W of power. Thanks go to the #gstreamer and #linux kernel folks for making this possible!
Receiving MMS on the #librem5 is working now, using #ModemManager and mmsd and #chatty, after some recent fixes including an addition to libqmi to allow sending ack for "transfer route MT" messages, see https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/chatty/-/issues/30 and https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mobile-broadband/ModemManager/-/issues/257 #phosh #UserFreedom #mobile #gnu #linux #freesoftware @purism #gnomeonmobile
"me in the morning, right after I turned the switches on"
This may not be the most impressive winter selfie (it's a 8M sensor outputting 0.3M after all), but you got to start somewhere :) #librem5
I did nothing but taking the photo (looped in a script with v4l2-ctl and dcraw; then displayed on screen using Eye of GNOME) - all the credit goes to Dorota and Martin, and the work continues there: https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-next/-/issues/43
Spent some time on getting my old Librem 5 port of Jumpdrive into shape, so it can get upstreamed. It's a super useful little recovery utility to have in your tool belt :) https://github.com/dreemurrs-embedded/Jumpdrive/pull/24 #librem5 #gnu #linux #mobile
I always wanted a simple way to do measurements on the #librem5 with a voltmeter or scope while still having most of the hardware like #wifi attached and being able to swap components quickly. Today i got an idea and it works fairly well. I can even flip the whole thing around fairly quickly to measure on the other side and put the whole thing away to free space on the desk:
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.
Just tagged phoc 0.6.0 - notable changes: filters out touch events on disabled touchscreens (thanks to @craftyguy), improves handling of tiled windows, includes plenty of bugfixes for mouse pointer support and tries a bit harder to fit windows onto the screen (which may help some Flatpak apps). Grab it for your distro while it's fresh! #librem5 #phosh #phoc #gnomeonmobile #mobile #gnu #linux @purism https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phoc/-/releases/v0.6.0
