[release notes] 2.0.4/Fiskarsinjoki [released] -

It took a long time before we delivered the previous update (2.0.2). Our goal now is to start providing updates in shorter intervals.
This update, 2.0.4 alias Fiskarsinjoki, introduces quite a few new features and bug fixes. One of the key new features is the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card. This helps to keep the Phone Memory from getting cluttered and in good shape. Another long-awaited new feature being introduced is conference calling. You can now rotate the device to landscape in Calculator to access the new scientific mode with support for high-precision, brackets and trigonometric and exponential operations. And, you can use Gallery edit options to adjust brightness and contrast of photos. You can also launch the synchronization of Calendar in the app itself, and share files from the File manager of Storage page (in Settings). Last but not least, we have upgraded the Browser engine.

So I will be at FOSDEM also this year! :like

Looks like it'll be boring this year: (nothing in schedule, at time of linking :)

Heh, well, it would be surprising to have a schedule if the calls for proposals are still open.

FOSDEM 2017 - Accepted developer rooms

I see there is a "Decentralized internet" room for the first time, great news! Anyone from #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #GNUSocial, #Pumpio, #Mediagoblin or other #decentralized social network project peeps planning to submit talks? Doesn't look like the call for proposals is out yet for this room. Will be sure to spend some time in this room in any case.

@MediaGoblin (Christopher) - maybe a good chance to push out #ActivityPub if you're planning to attend this year, hmm?

Static types in Python, oh my(py)!

Over the last few years, static type checkers have become available for popular dynamic languages like PHP (Hack) and JavaScript (Flow and TypeScript), and have seen wide adoption. Two years ago, a provisional syntax for static type annotations was added to Python 3. However, static types in Python have yet

I would say indiscriminate site-wide blanket security measures.

And still, plenty of people thinks that app stores are good, and are the way to go, and that is normal to pay for the privilege to develop to grow the visibility and the profits of companies behind this stores... funny people...

App Stores are a good idea; as are package repositories :-P but they should not be the only way to install software on a device.

Elena ``of Valhalla'' 3 settimane fa
There a huge difference between a package repository maintained by a community with the aim to provide free software to the community itself and an apple store maintained by a company with the ultimate aim to gain money (directly through the sale commissions, by improving the perceived value of something they sell or with other less honest methods).

Of course a system that provided a community maintained package repository but didn't allow alternative methods of installing packages, even to advanced users, would have serious issues, but I don't really see a reason for it to happen.

new OStatus implementation:

There are several versions of the salmon spec and none of them are compatible with each other. They were all legal versions of the spec when they were created. Unfortunately there is no versioning in salmon so the only way to maintain backward compatibility is to send a message and see if it bounces. If it does, try another version of the spec until you've exhausted all known versions of the spec. So it looks like we'll now need 4 variants of salmon for StatusNet compatibility. Somebody should take the high ground here and if salmon won't provide versioning, OStatus can certainly tell you which version/signing-format it uses. This would be much better than poking around in the dark and wasting bandwidth trying different salmon flavours like we do now.

The problem could also be at the key transmission. Then the signing would - of course - fail.
