Finally, the official 1.0 of #Flatpak is out!

flatpak.org/press/2018-08-20-f

With Flatpak you get desktop apps using a layered filesystem with OStree and this way provide applications in a stable way on almost every distro.

There is already a big number of applications available as flatpak. See flathub.org for that.

One of the most powerful features is its GTK integration which makes sure your flatpaks use your system's GTK themes :)

Have a lot of fun!

Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!

(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)

(And loving Flatpak so far. Now if only I can figure out how to make the app icon appear as not the default gear. Oddly, seeing the same thing with the Wire app.)

@rodneyrehm A really good (and accessible) alternative for the "original UI" is pinafore.social by @nolan . I was never a fan of Tweetdeck and the user experience on pinafore is so much - in lack of a better word - calmer

Maybe the reason #Mastodon is so good is because the corporations that inhabit the #birdsite and other social media haven't made it here yet.

This hyper capitalisation of the social sphere is exactly why other #platforms feel so toxic. The fact that these platforms are run in the interests of capital and not the interests of their communities is surely clear by now.
