A few days ago I had an idea for a simple e-ink project and found Inkplate - an Open Hardware design with ESP32 and recycled Kindle displays.
Programmed it to wake up daily at midnight to download a PGM image over WiFi (https://gitlab.com/dos1/kartka) from a server which checks some stuff like trash collection schedule. Should last years on a single battery charge.
Check it out if you look for a super approachable way to build some e-ink stuff! https://inkplate.io/
#phosh 0.10.0 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.10.0
Besides plenty of fixes #phosh can now be a #geoclue agent (so location services can work) and has support for reboot/shutdown dialogs (which are used when e.g. gnome-software wants to reboot or when you shut down the system from the menu).
See above release notes for the full list of changes and contributors.
(it's 8-bit 4208x3120 GRBG - and you'll probably notice autofocus phase pixels that we don't handle in any way just yet :))
Here comes libadwaita! Read about our plans to make GNOME apps and GTK 4 even better, and about the future of libhandy: https://adrienplazas.com/blog/2021/03/31/introducing-libadwaita.html
Sneak Peek of the Next PureOS Release on the Librem 5
"With the next release of PureOS, code-named Byzantium, just around the corner, let’s give you a sneak peek of what you can look forward to."
However I often see people saying that they have almost the same specs: same CPU and same amount of RAM.
Why? Librem 5 has 30% faster CPU clock speed, 140% faster RAM standard, roughly double the GPU performance. More details: https://forums.puri.sm/t/comparing-specs-of-upcoming-linux-phones.

if you only want to disable that for the on screen keyaboard you can use

Can Librem 5 run Flutter linux desktop apps? Yep! I was able to successfully build and run my BodySculpting weightlifting workout app today on Librem 5 itself. Code once, build for Android, iOS, and Libremt5, how cool is that!
phoc 0.7.0 has just been released!
This version includes mouse based snap-to-edge for tiling and maximizing; window move & resize fixes for touchscreens; and **big** stability improvements - I haven't seen it crashing a single time for a while now :)
Here we can see a Plasmus Vulgaris specimen wandering outside of its regular habitat. Carefully testing the waters, encouraged by being docked, it slowly gets to know the unfamiliar surroundings of the phosh environment it found itself in - the other major part of the diverse ecosystem populating the Librem 5. #kde #plasma #gnome #phosh #gnu #linux #librem5
