Switched To Linux: Dissenter Web Browser (a new open browser for free speech).

Gab released a fork of the Brave browser to integrate their free speech plugin. Today he has a quick look at this new "freedom browser".

Dissenter has the most popular Linux distributions covered & it is in the AUR for Arch and Arch-based distros such as Manjaro Linux.

Matrix 1.0, Synapse 1.0 and the Matrix Foundation





We are very excited to announce the first fully stable release of the #Matrix protocol and specification across all APIs - as well as the Synapse 1.0 reference implementation which implements the full Matrix 1.0 API surface.

This means that after just over 5 years since the initial work on Matrix began, we are proud to have finally exited beta!! This is the conclusion of the work which we announced at FOSDEM 2019 when we cut the first stable release of the Server-Server API and began the Synapse 0.99 release series in anticipation of releasing a 1.0.

Wow, ein modulares Smartphone mit Schwerpunkt #Datenschutz , #FreieSoftware und #OpenHardware . Dank Modularität kann man es sogar einigermaßen reparieren und an eigene Bedürfnisse anpassen.

Thanks all for this information, really useful. I imagine as more people search out alternatives there will be an increase in faux #opensource #privacy software, apps etc.
Any advice on how to research new things properly to protect against false claims by eager greedy liars?
Thanks
 
Unity is coming to linux!

It's not libre & opensource or anything but cool to have more stuff for linux natively! I've heard that ableton is going to linux too but can't confirm it yet.

Political satirist Christine Prayon was awarded the 10,000 Euro Dieter Hildebrandt Prize of the City of #Munich and donated the prize money to the Free Software Foundation Europe. She used her thank-you speech to put the finger on one of Munich's sore spots and criticised Munich's switch back to proprietary systems.

About #GitHub Sponsors


https://help.github.com/en/articles/about-github-sponsors

So, #GitHub launched their tool (in beta) to allow any GitHub user to sponsor another GitHub user. This is hardly unexpected, this fits into their needs to tie #developers deeper into their platform and also fits into the trends of #opensource project maintainers, in charge of software doing critical things on every computer, web site and mobile device, shouting for #funding.

Unsurprisingly also, a lot of people are criticising this move, saying it will "make dev... Show more...
 
Wow. Finally bumped from #Nextcloud 14 all the way to 16, while moving servers.

FOSS manifesto


To make it clearer on what our relationship as an organization is to FOSS (Free and Open Source Software), we recently created a "FOSS manifesto" to act as an additional guiding document for our committee and members. Any decisions, actions or spending of funds should align to not only the association rules but also the FOSS manifesto as well.

Every day I become more and more convinced that in our current global society, #FreeSoftware is a critical and non-negotiable piece of breaking the cycles of neocolonialism in the global south.

@riccomatx I think @freedomboxfndn is doing a great job proofing that in fact almost everyone can start #SelfHosting . It's mostly a #UX challenge and a bit of a motivation thing.

I also think #ZeroKnowledge hosting is an awesome approach for building trustworthy hosted services. @cryptpad are heroes in my book. I hope all #OpenSource and especially #Fediverse projects like #Mastodon , #PeerTube , #PixelFed , etc. will adopt zero knowledge hosting.
 
#Ledger is an open source command line financial reporter.

Ledger parses and process double entry #accounting journals written by the user. It can then create detailed reports on various accounts.

Ledger isn't a full validator and journal like #GnuCash, rather it is a tool to allow you to verify and overview hand made paper-like accounting journals. This allows for great flexibility.

I am close to having too many irons in the fire - again. commercial work, family and side projects are also eating my time, but I have decided that finally making my website available for others is a good thing to do now. First of all I need to use it for two other projects so it would be a good time to optimize the code. I also want other people to be able to use it - I have talked to other comic artists and the feedback I am getting is that they could use exactly a solution like this. Simple and durable.

There are a lot of things that can be done to improve it. So what is the first thing you do?

You make a logo.

I am pretty sure that this is not the normal order of things you see in most software projects, but you will always do things in your mother language first and I am not fluent in code, I am fluent in images,

I've completely replaced Google Maps with the open source alternative OsmAnd (Open Street Maps).

I love that you can download maps for offline viewing and even mark places on the map. I've used it while travelling too.

Highly recommend!

So I heard of this from somewhere and finally got the trial going for Lilia (my 8 yo). She's absolutely loving it. The interface is really nice and easy to use and the mixing of game building and light coding is a great idea (with the cute characters of course). Nice to see her building her own platformer levels <3

Will share some games once she gets more advanced :D Also nice that it builds (like Scratch) this culture of #opensource and sharing. She was already enthusiastically telling me how she played a level made by some random person and then started tweaking it and how cool that was.

After a free week trial, it's $7 per month, but well worth it I think.

The Big 1.0. – Riot


Riot, the default and most mature client for #Matrix just hit 1.0, with a huge redesign <3 If you have ever checked Riot before, but didn't like the looks - please give it another try! If you haven't tried it but like things like, dunno, #Slack for example, have a try and you might be pleasantly surprised.

#Opensource #decentralized chat and team tool with a no compromises #UI <3
 
@kde Can't wait for it to appear on my #openSuSE #Tumbleweed updates... :)

[I can't repeat it often enough: I am always in awe when it has been, like, just a week and I start "zypper dup" and get hundreds of updated packages... so much awesome work by #opensource creators going on all the time!]

My entire #FOSDEM journey has been worth it with this one brilliant piece of wisdom from Sage Sharp for newcomers:

Ask "what questions do you have" instead of "do you have any questions".
