#introduction This is the freshly-made Fediverse account for the Kasts podcast player.
Kasts is part of KDE Plasma Mobile but works equally well on desktop. It has a play queue and sleep timer, and supports sleep suspend, saving play positions and syncing them using the GPodder API (e.g. with AntennaPod).
It's available through distro packages or FlatHub.
PS: This account is administered by @mogwai.
#PlasmaMobile 22.09 Gear ⚙ is here, and offers an improved home screen, improved features, and an overall improved experience for your phone...
KDE's Plasma 5.26 Beta desktop is now out! Get an advance peek into what is to come in October, check for bugs 🪳, and help the devs polish the features and code!
Shown: Plasma Big Screen, Aura browser, and Plank Player
Since people kept asking: we have a merch site up now, where you can get sustainable, stylish piece of clothing featuring the postmarketOS logo in quite a few variations.
A huge THANK YOU to all contributors working on projects helping out #MobileLinux.
The low level devs, hardware makers, issue testers, app coders and so many more.
It's a long road, and just like the early days of #DesktopLinux many are impatient, critical or can't imagine the success that one day is possible. The fact that you persevere and keep working to help our #privacy, soverignty, #DigitalRights and help keep technology under user control, inspires me daily.
You're *all* my heroes.
Update: It arrived! Yesterday, in fact. Went super fast.
My first impressions are good. I managed to get ShiftOS-L (Google-free, based on Android 10) and postmarketOS both installed at the same time so I can dual-boot. I also unlocked the bootloader and all this without voiding my guarantee.
Thanks to the #postmarketos wiki and matrix crowd for helping me figure things out. Look forward to playing more with this thing.
Just dropped my phone for the 256th time and the glass finally cracked. Looks pretty bad, there are splinters coming out, etc.
Guess it's finally time to move on. I had a Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge which served me surprisingly well for five years (thanks to /e/ OS from @efoundation for the software support while it lasted).
hey hey, the SDM845 kernel fork in @postmarketOS just got upgraded to 5.19 😎
Finally adding speaker support for the 6T and enabling the OnePlus 6 notification LED! Let me know if you've given it a spin

This is something Linux on mobile enthusiasts should consider seriously, and require from manufacturers :)
lmao @ManjaroLinux really can't help themselves but ship unmerged patches, this time they broke Chatty again by including 3 merge requests in Chatty on their STABLE branch! One of which is actually closed...
