Another week, another weekly update - this time collected and edited on another continent: Ubuntu Touch 20.04 comes with a new release model (and keeps pumping out Q&A videos), improvements coming to Phosh and to PinePhone Pro with a huge update to rk2aw and u-boot, a FOSDEM special episode of the postmarketOS podcast, a great video about Genode on PinePhone, and more!

Addition: Also, a new release of LuneOS, the continuation of webOS!
