Weekly Update (12/2022): GNOME 42, Phosh 0.17.0, Phoc 0.13.0, Mepo 0.4 and Capyloon on Linux Phones!
A new PinePhone Modem Firmware release, updates on Nemo Mobile and GNUnet Messenger progress, Calls on the Poco F1, and a bunch of gaming centric PinePhone videos! And do try Capyloon on your Mobian-running Librem 5 or PinePhone Pro!
Weekly Update (11/2022): A RISC-V handheld, Fedora on the PinePhone Pro, Precursor shipping and new releases of SailfishOS, libhandy and libadwaita
Eight days of news, and still not a lot that's super Linux on Mobile specific. At least there's been another Ubuntu Touch Q&A, another postmarketOS Service Pack, and it looks like that really need to find the time to have a look at Capyloon.
Weekly Update (10/2022): Squeekboard gets a new look, Nheko 0.9.2, Dirty Pipes and Tow-Boot being released for PinePhone and PinePhone Pro
There's some good news and some bad news. Dirty Pipe is not a fun vulnerability, and our GNU/Linux Phones have new enough kernels to be vulnerable. At least that new Spectre variant does not affect Cortex A53 phones - having in-order cores only is not always disadvantageous.
Really, not much happened. But that does not mean that we don't have a nice collection of blog posts, podcasts and videos this weeks. Highlights include a post about the Librem 5 camera, which explains how it can be used and how it got to where it is, a nice guide for writing QML apps with Python, and a video tutorial that explains moving GPG private keys securely, so that you can use your key on your PinePhone.
If you are a PinePhone owner and have not been living under a rock, you will know that there's an exploitable vulnerability for the PinePhone Pro's Quectel EG-25G firmware that's been supplied with your PINE64 phone.
Weekly Update (8/2022): Phosh 0.16.0, Nemo Mobile's February Report and adding Kodi to Megi's multi boot image
Another boring week with just a few releases, I even had to reach for Steam Deck content to fill this one up.
Weekly Update (7/2022): Call and chat with +015550199999 or put Ubuntu Touch OTA 22 on your libhybris phone!
A rather boring week: People love handhelds with keyboards, an unofficial PinePhone battery case, a translucent backcover and a little bit of software news. Oh, and PINE64 shared another community update!
