To make "change the app" more clear: Riot had to change its package name in order to be able to sign the app with a new certificate. This results in a new app entry in Google Play.

@fdroidorg could theoretically keep the original package name with upcoming versions, but this would introduce a maintenance overhead on the already overloaded F-Droid maintainers. Therefore, F-Droid aims to be as close to upstream as possible which means in this case switching to the new package name, too.

Have you been thinking about making an app for the Librem 5 but didn't know where to start?

I wrote a tutorial blog post for getting started with designing apps for GNOME mobile (and desktop too).

The @blender community have done it again! Behold Spring, Blender's new film. Beautiful designs and fantastic effects show how you can create professional, Hollywood-grade CGI using Free Software. Congrats Blender!

If you are getting a Pepper and Carrot vibe, it is no coincidence: @davidrevoy, creator of P&C, used @krita to design the look of the film:

@kuketzblog @Digitalcourage Wir stimmen zu, Software sollte möglichst immer reproduzierbar gebaut sein. Aber Achtung: Entgegen des Zitats ist Software bei #FDroid und #Debian nicht immer reproduzierbar gebaut.

Seit die #Urheberrechtsreform im EU-Parlament verabschiedet wurde, sprießen Europaweit TOR Nodes. Bis zum eigentlichen Einsatz von #uploadfilter könnten es viele mehr werden ;)

Da kann die #ContentMafia am Ende auch nicht viel gegen machen, hauptsache #Artikel13 haben wollen.

Creí un deck para : en frases

Traduje la traducción alemana original a Español e Inglés. Espero que así más gente pueda aprender el Árabe con este deck.

I've created a for : in sentences

The original German text got translated into English and Spanish, in the hope that it's useful to even more people.

Ich habe ein Deck für erstellt: in Sätzen

Die deutschen Texte sind außerdem auf Englisch und Spanisch übersetzt.

@yisraeldov They are working on a headless desktop client which will be powered by a REST API demonstrated in this video:

It's easy to modify apps to include malware before they are published on those platforms. Therefore, users have to trust publishers. This is where reproducibility comes into play.

Draft text of images for visually impaired:

Free Software is a great thing, because it allows users to check that apps are doing what they pretend to do. But almost nobody compiles apps themselves. Instead, binaries are used which in case of Google Play or Apple's App Store are built by the apps' developers or in case of F-Droid come from the project itself.

Writing about on the road couldn't be much better than with and which generate a lovely preview and sync my drafts across all my devices. Thanks so much to their developers!
