It's time to test the beta release for Plasma 5.19!
In this release, we have prioritized making Plasma more consistent, correcting and unifying designs of widgets and desktop elements; worked on giving you more control over your desktop by adding configuration options to the System Settings; and improved usability, making Plasma and its components easier to use and an overall more pleasurable experience.
Read on to discover all the new features and improvements of Plasma 5.19…
P.S.- It looks soooo much better with a dark color scheme and Oxygen themes... 😁

ActivityPub for GNU Social GSoC
Congrats to Diogo Cordeiro on getting a GSoC internship this summer to add ActivityPub to GNU Social! And thanks to GNU Social maintainer mmn-o for mentoring!
GNU Social is a social communication software used in federated social networks. In a federated social network user data stays in user's server instead of a centralized one. Given that, standards were created in order to make the communication between different softwares in a social federated context possible. ActivityPub is the newer and covers parts out of OStatus's specification, namely the app/client development. Because of this and other benefits, GNU Social is looking forward to support this new protocol. The project idea aims at developing a plugin (as GNU Social is true to the Unix-philosophy of small programs to do a small job) that will implement the ActivityPub Protocol in GNU Social.

Great compilation of all kinds of recent news about the Jabber/XMPP decentralized IM/VoIP network =)
ActivityPub guest post on the FSF blog
ActivityPub is a real standard now!
Let your social networks be free!
ActivityPub was basically 3 years of my life, and there were points were I wasn't sure if the time and energy I was spending on it was worth it. I'm sure it was today. Thank you everyone who participated in the standards process, have implemented... or are going to implement! You made it all worth it!Show all 5 repliesCongratulations!
On a related note, I stumbled upon a progress report of the FreedomBox project. In it they talk about integrating distributed social networks and in particular about Diaspora and GNU Social. How about someone bringing ActivityPub and accompanying implementations to their attention?

I'm back on the fediverse
Life and work conspired to make me not fix my pump & mastadon server for several months. They are fixed now. I'm hoping to start using one or both on a regular basis.

Dianara 1.4.1 released
Happy holidays, pumpers! 🎄
As announced some time ago, v1.3.7 was the last version to support Qt 4.x. Qt 5 is required since 1.4.0. The bad news is that, at this time, users of distributions such as Debian 9 can't build with the version of QOAuth present in their repositories, based on Qt 4. Current Debian Testing/Sid is fine though. Debian 9 might get the required versions in backports at some point.
EDIT: I've found this great information source to keep track of package versions across GNU distributions: repology.org/metapackage/dianara/versions Neat!
could qt be built from source on systems that don't have the packages
(or any system - the user might want a local install)
anyway these days I prefer to have local installs of applications just as the user rather than root.
less chance of anything breaking the system or anything making changes to libraries used by other unrelated applications or any other still-wanted applications disappearing or breaking
Cool, someone is working on getting Dianara into Fedora's repositories! Big thanks! =)
“could qt be built from source on systems that don't have the packages (or any system - the user might want a local install)?”
I'm not sure I understand the question, but I don't know either way, sorry.
Happy GNU year!! And thank you for this Xmas present!!
I think I remember talking about this feature but since you made to get this awesome one, I'm writting it down: any option to automatically save the drafts? like LibreOffice does: every X minutes your work gets saved. I think it would be very cool to have here :)
