Very excited about our new stable release; puri.sm/posts/pureos-rolls-on-

More to come - we're building a rolling release as well.

At least some hope: "The ratio of commits by female authors has grown steadily over the past 50 years, reaching in 2019 for the first time 10% of all contributions to public code." Thanks @zacchiro for your work here.

With GNOME 40, most core apps are going to have rounded bottom corners.

Many third party apps have already had them for a while but if your app doesn't yet, you still have a few weeks to get it in shape before 40 ;)

Relevant docs: gnome.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/l

I will be mentoring someone (might be you?) this summer as part of GSoC to port one of the design toolings apps to GTK 4.

It's also a great opportunity to get familiar with gtk4-rs & librsvg ;-)

@todd @kyle next time people ask why the L5 is more expensive than other Linux phones I will point to this toot. (Besides beefier hardware) Thanks for contributing to the *real* open ecosystem!

OpenPGP in Your Pocket

"Access to the smart card reader on the Librem 5 is something we at Purism have been looking forward to for a long time. That day is finally here..."

Coming soon to a Librem 5 near you: support for the internal OpenPGP smart card reader.

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 :) github.com/dreemurrs-embedded/

- Announcing the Librem Mini V2

"The Librem Mini v2 in just about all respects matches the Mini v1 including the same base price. The big difference is that we can now offer a new, 10th gen i7-10510U Intel processor. "

Librem 5 Mass Production Phone Has Begun Shipping

"Shipping the Librem 5 has been an immense multi-year developmental effort. It is the culmination of people’s desire to see an alternative to Android and iOS..."

So impressed with the work @johan Thelin has done with FOSS North this year despite all the challenges that have come. The schedule for the upcoming talk is pretty amazing and relevant. lnkd.in/gAgzqMd
So grateful for all of Johan's work to keep what I humbly feel is the best independent, FOSS conference in Scandinavia.

Specify Form-Factors in Your Librem 5 Apps

"As a user you also want to know which applications are relevant to run at a given time, so Phosh will let you run desktop-only applications only when the phone is docked."

More than 2,000 law enforcement agencies across every state now have access to technology that allows them to extract data from confiscated phones.

A new report by @TeamUpturn details the dangerous growth of these tools: upturn.org/reports/2020/mass-e

Microsoft got in antitrust trouble for bundling IE for free w/ Windows to compete with Netscape.

Now imagine Microsoft controlled whether Netscape could be installed or updated on Windows, and blocked them, and you are closer to the current situation with phones.
