#phosh 0.10.1 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.10.1
See above release notes for the full list of changes and contributors.
If you have a hard time calling me in the next days it's because we're reworking the way incoming calls are handled in #phosh / #calls - so you can jump back and forth between locked and unlocked shell (please excuse the video quality). Now we need to fix make it look pretty.
TIL there's a standard for bundles with markdown + linked images in a single file. It's such a slam dunk idea, why is this not more commonly supported by markdown apps?

The #safenetwork is on the hunt for experts in the following fields:
As well as a person proficient at writing technical documentation.
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/
Video: CryptPad is an open source privacy based cloud collaboration suite
CryptPad is built to enable collaboration. It synchronizes changes to documents in real time. Because all data is encrypted, the service and its administrators have no way of seeing the content being edited and stored.
CryptPad provides a full-fledged office suite with all the tools necessary for productive collaboration. Applications include: Rich Text, Spreadsheets, Code/Markdown, Kanban, Slides, Whiteboard and Polls.
In this video I explain why you'd want to use it, what it's key features are, and I do a tour around its user interface.

I added caching support to flatpak-github-actions today, it should reduce the CI time significantly. For example OBS Studio's Flatpak workflow went from ~30minutes to ~10minutes!
If you're using the action on your project: testing/feedback would be very much appreciated before the next release.
See https://github.com/bilelmoussaoui/flatpak-github-actions/blob/master/.github/workflows/flatpak-test.yml#L8-L20 for an example on how to set it up.
