Delayed and with post-FOSDEM blues, this Weekly Update goes through what happened in the past week:

Phosh 0.36.0 and Ubuntu Touch 20.04 OTA 4 were released, new renderers in GTK4 are going to be good for performance, but not on slower Linux Phones, you can support Phosh's development directly now, an Update on Itinerary, progress on the new PinePhone WiFi driver, and recordings of FOSDEM talks showing up!

Commentary in italics.
