Aside from another Phosh release, we have roundups about SailfishOS, and good news regarding connecting USB peripherals to Snapdragon 845 devices! Have fun reading this one!

Editor's Note

Soon, on June 4th, 2024, it will be four years since the first Weekly Update, which won't be celebrated with a blog post, as there's another, more important, personal anniversary on that same day. With a vacation coming up, further blog posts will be written in trains, and only then, meaning, the next posts will happen on July 5th and/or 9th, and July 20th, taking a short, but necessary break in between. Of course, while not yet half-a-decade, four years are a good opportunity to have a short celebration; a good opportunity to do so will be at FrOSCon - I'll see to it and smuggle something into the dev-room schedule. If you plan to attend, and have a topic, please add your talkthere, too!
