On the other hand, after checking the open issues on github, I'm not sure I want to join... These are not the bugs you expect from the app that's handling money...

I'd love to check out Sphinx, but I'm unable to join. QR code is not detected and the join link brings me to this screen:

Please do not use 1.9.0 but use the just released 1.9.1. There is a severe bug in 1.9.0 which was found yesterday. 1.8 versions are safe. Details will follow today. (, , ).

Due to an implementation bug, v3 onion services were experiencing instability earlier today.

A bug fix is on the way.

Everything else in Tor works fine even when the consensus is a few hours old, and v3 onion services should too.

You can learn more here: gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/core

You gotta love these "free speech, but not really" folks.

Either you moderate your content, and that's ok, or you don't, which is also ok
But please don't pretend to act like a free speech platform when you're not.

Thanks to #FreeSoftware developers, the German #CoronaWarnApp for tracing #COVID19 risk contacts is available on @fdroidorg without any Google dependencies. This not only fosters software freedom, but also sets the ground for innovative features.

Funny thing is that people assume that tracking only happens over the web, in their browsers.

While Microsoft and company have been doing it for ages in their operating systems and office suites, many didn't think that some of the console tools they use did the same.

Whoops.

Here is why I am very hesitant about adopting new and flashy systems. You can't trust them.

@alex Hey, you develop a mastodon frontend alternative! That's pretty awesome. I've always wanted to host my own fedi instance, but mastodon installation guide is too intimidating for a hobby project. Pleroma + Soapbox looks easy enough. I might give it a try.

youtube-dl 

The youtube-dl team backed down, they removed functionality necessary for it to access some videos.
I'm not faulting them, maybe they live in a repressive country where their lives are under threat, they don't owe it to us.
But yesterday youtube-dl was accessible everywhere BUT Github, today partial-youtube-dl is accessible on Github, and from now on the main developed branch will be partial-youtube-dl. That's it, the boogiemen won.

Very important and serious website that you should carefully research:

bongo.cat

You can save notes on peoples profiles on mastodon! How did we live without this for so long?

#Fennec #FDroid based on #Fenix alias the latest #Firefox for #Android has arrived! Trackers have been removed, "about:config" is available. The version has not been marked as recommended yet, so you have to download and install manually. Thanks to relan, @Bubu and all who have made this possible. 🥳

Google removed K-9 Mail from the Play store with zero notice because the description of the app included alternate spellings of the app name we'd included to work around how bad Play's search is.
