If you are using mobile linux with T-mobile/a T-mobile MVNO, you may have noticed that sending MMSes stopped working recently.
I figured out the issue and released a new version of mmsd-tng to fix it:
1.x uses libsoup2 and 2.x uses libsoup3, there shouldn't be any differences between the versions besides that.
Quotient 0.7 is out! Containing a few years of work, this releases makes it possible to use end-to end-encryption with NeoChat and bring other nice features and improvements with it. You can read the full release announcement here: https://github.com/quotient-im/libQuotient/releases/tag/0.7.0
Huge thanks to KitsuneRal and all the other contributors for all their work on this release.
The German state of Hesse has banned the use of #Microsoft365 in its schools, citing concerns over privacy violations.
#CollaboraOnline is designed with privacy in mind. We offer discount pricing for educational institutions! 🧑🎓
I finally got around to updating mmsd-tng to libsoup3 and I released a beta edition here!: https://gitlab.com/kop316/mmsd/-/tags/2.0.beta
What I will say is it works for me (tm), but I would like to make sure it works for:
1) Verizon Wireless USA and,
2) a carrier that has an MMS proxy.
I would sincerely appreciate anyone that meets those categories and can test to please do, and let me know if it works.
Yesterday, we moved the fractal-next branch to main. This means we will get now nightly builds. 🎉
So the main reason I wrote the Visual Voicemail App for mainline linux phones is because my mother leave voicemails if she can't get a hold of me to check up on me and gets worried if I don't call her back.
I'm glad to share that my mom can still do that since I switched to a #librem5
(and yes, I did call her back both times!)
UPDATE: Another Librem 14 laptop manufacturing run has arrived at our warehouse, as we massively increase our stock to weather any future supply chain issues. Good time to order your new machine, we say ➡️ https://shop.puri.sm/shop/librem-14/
Got to play (as in only tested, and did none of the work), with a couple merge requests in #phosh to improve VPN support in #phosh
Top bar shows a VPN padlock symbol, and the openvpn connection worked. In this case using Librem One. And Duckduckgo thinks I am in the US.
One note: this was only for adding better support for VPN in #phosh, the VPN settings panels in #GNOME Control Center still need to be made adaptive. But again: “hey it is progress”. Kudos to @agx for this work!
Our team works hard to maintain support for the Librem 5 phone. Check out the progress on mainline support for the phone and its development kit. Kudos to the team 🎉 https://puri.sm/posts/purism-and-linux-5-16/
Chatty 5.0~beta is out!
This is the first Chatty released with integrated MMS support!
I’ve been making veiled comments about a situation in the Linux desktop community for a while, and I think it’s finally time to lift the curtain: https://blogs.gnome.org/christopherdavis/2021/11/10/system76-how-not-to-collaborate/
System76 has not been kind downstream, and they’ve made a habit of talking poorly about their upstream projects and then using that as a jumping point to market their own projects.
