A small victory: An hour after we sent a cease & desist letter to #Gab's legal team on Oct 21 regarding their failure to publish up-to-date source code in compliance with Mastodon's AGPLv3 license, they have uploaded a new version.

That is not all that we demanded in the letter, but it is nevertheless a victory in upholding the AGPLv3 license of our project, and a signal to those who doubt that we are willing to show teeth to those who ignore it.

So much software on other people’s computers!

QT dannymoerkerke: Photoshop is now on the web
VS Code is now a PWA
Outlook is now a PWA
Teams is now a PWA

It's hard to overstate the importance of all this.

The web was already moving into the territory of desktop with GMail but Photoshop is a whole other level.

Shoutout to the great folks over at @fdroidorg! Thanks to some kind advice on my MR, I was able to get configured for "beta" releases.

It's too bad that I still have to manually add the build config to publish a beta, but still nice to at least have some way to make it happen!

#NewPipe updates are back in the main @fdroidorg repository.

You can get the latest version 0.20.11 from f-droid.org/packages/org.schab.

We went back to the "normal" #FDroid build process, so these APKs are signed by F-Droid again. If you installed an APK signed by us, you either need to uninstall the APK or add the official NewPipe repository to F-Droid: newpipe.net/FAQ/tutorials/inst

Current development progress for Alpha 24 is fluctuating between 98% and 99%. A few more bugs still need to be ironed out before the final packaging of the game, and then we're ready to go... One thing to look forward to in Alpha 24 are the totally reworked horse models and animations by Alexandermb. This graphic by wowgetooffyourcellphone illustrates the improvements quite well. #opensource

Samuel Pepys was an important public official in 17th Century London, who helped to run the English navy and reported to the King. He also kept a secret diary where he was surprisingly honest about his personal life between 1660 - 1669.

You can follow the diary in real time (currently 1668) at:

Well, despairing of ever getting private groups in Mastodon (github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/) I have finally bit the bullet and forked my fediverse presence into public and private accounts (so that I can interact "privately" with family using the followers-only visibility on one account and interact publicly with this account).

Given my luck, now that I have done this I expect Mastodon to add support for private groups shortly. You can all thank me later!
