Ubuntu might not be dropping 32-bit app support after all… https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/06/is-ubuntu-not-dropping-32-bit-app-support-after-all
Valve hires KWin core developer Roman Gilg for gaming-related XServer and KWin improvements. Roman seems to have a ton of cool projects in the pipeline, and this makes me happy. #KDE
I'm really saddened to see how many of my friends have left the #Fediverse in recent months, mostly due to various dramas.
Honestly, if I wasn't on a pretty terrific instance I'd have joined them too.
I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.
- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.
Looks like #Canonical screwed everything up again by making Ubuntu 64 bit only which is the reason why Steam is leaving Ubuntu. Very well done. 👏
Two posts I forgot to share here:
Wayfire brings Compiz effects (wobbly windows, 3d cube, etc) to Wayland --> https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/06/wayfire-wayland-compiz-bling

Free software is free as in freedom, not as in free beer, which is why @Framasoft raises funds through a crowdfunding campaign. There are still 19 days to go to collect the tiny 4.5k€ left, and to fully fund the project.
The developer of Librefox seems to have disappeared and the community is wondering whether Mozilla is behind it.
"Freedom browser" series part 3!
The developer of aforementioned Librefox seems to have DISAPPEARED.
The community is wondering whether Mozilla (makers of Firefox) is behind it.
Yes: Mozilla has been very sketchy on recent times.
They were supposed to be the big torchbearer for freedom but have in opinion of many actually turned against the people.
Meet LIBREWOLF. A forked Librefox, then.
Last week, Mastodon adopted a beginner-friendly default interface 👍
So, maybe this would be a good time to spread the word about Mastodon to a wider audience?
If you're on Facebook/Twitter, you could do a little post about Masto with a link to https://joinmastodon.org ? And a link to a good instance running 2.9 or above?
(Also, I think some people were doing Mastodon posters?)
If people hear about Mastodon from many different sources, they are more likely to try it.
