I can now turn on/off wifi from the pin entry lockscreen, see more detailed battery info, and various other widgets.
The biggest improvement is that I no longer accidentally trigger the app-switcher when trying to enable/disable the keyboard, as the app switcher bar is now a swipe-up gesture instead of a tap. Yay!
Nice little improvements, thanks #phosh developers!

If you're having trouble with your Gmail account in Thunderbird today, it might be due to Google now requiring OAuth 2.0 authentication.
Thunderbird SHOULD transition your account automatically, but if you're not able to connect, try going into your Gmail Account's Server Settings and manually changing "Authentication Method" to OAuth2 (it should NOT be "Normal.")

As you might have noticed, PeerTube has a plugin for chatting during livestreams (screenshot below). It's really nice!
If you do livestreaming on PeerTube, ask your server admin if the plugin can be added, it makes livestreams a lot more fun. There is more info about the plugin at https://github.com/JohnXLivingston/peertube-plugin-livechat
The creator of the plugin is @John_Livingston and they have a roadmap of more features they want to add to the plugin. You can help make this happen by donating to Livingston's LiberaPay account at https://liberapay.com/JohnLivingston

I recently announced that Sequoia has a web of trust implementation. Today, I piblished the first version of a specification. Incredibly neither PGP nor GnuPG specifies how they implement WoT! My document tries to address all of the details and includes implementation advice (an efficient implementation is non-obvious, but happily not complicated). #pgp https://sequoia-pgp.gitlab.io/sequoia-wot/
