It’s sunday. Now what happened since last sunday?

Phosh 0.8.1, Calls 0.3.0, Sxmo 1.3.0 and more! Commentary in italics.

Software development and releases

Apps

  • Phosh 0.8.1 is out, as the number indicates it’s mostly a bug fix release. Head over to the full release notes for the details.
  • Calls 0.3.0 has been released, adding a few features, translations and bug fixes. Go read the full changelog.
  • Portfolio 0.9.9 has been released, adding support for the org.freedesktop.FileManager1 interface among other things.
  • A new version of Authenticator, powered by Rust and GTK4 is out. Sadly it did not work for me when I tried the Flatpak on postmarketOS.

Stuff I did

Content

I made no video. I published one blog post about scaling in Phosh, and it’s not really ready yet.

Random

I installed postmarketOS Edge with Phosh on my Librem 5 Evergreen last week, and reported on the battery life I experienced during the past week:

I have nuked that install today and tried PureOS Byzantium tonight (it’s really not ready yet), and might go Mobian next. Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, my Fedora on PinePhone video (the Odysee upload) went sort of viral on “Hacker News”.

I also published my first APKBUILD.

LINMOBapps

This week I added just one app to LINMOBapps, and some maintenance happened. I also added some more PKGBUILDs. Please do contribute!
