Check out @kde #PlasmaMobile Gear 21.12! This release packs tons of new features and apps, improvements to performance and stability, revamped interface designs, and much more.

Highlights to look forward to: gPodder syncing in Kasts, MMS support in Spacebar, and the migration from oFono to ModemManager.

Here it is peeps, #Linux 5.16-rc1 + @postmarketOS up and running on the @shiftphones SHIFT6mq. Most things seem to work (including the modem) But unfortunately WiFi is having some issues.

Thanks a lot to @glundner (@shiftphones) for bringing up initial touch and display support.

This is afaic the crux of Drew's point.

For me, FLOSS is about working *together* to make things better to empower the users of the software.
I think that's also what Drew means.

Android is wholly controlled by G👀gle for the benefit of G👀gle.
They have no interest in (furthering) the freedom of their users, quite the contrary.

I abandoned chromium as that has the same problem. While several projects try to remove the worst part of it, it'll always be a losing battle.

Drew DeVault: "Android may be Linux in implementation, but it’s about as far from the spirit of free software as you can get."

I've merged a small user experience improvement which will benefit both @kde Plasma Desktop and @plasmamobile "About device" pages on ARM devices: . It will now show proper CPU name instead of blank line.

I just learned @calebccff has a Liberapay profile and I'm now buying them a weekly cup of coffee for their awesome work in mainlining devices on !
Please show your support so they can get more OnePlus devices to mainline and continue their awesome work!

A merge request was made for initial support for the #Fairphone4 just minutes after the device was announced, I think that is the quickest we got support for a device ever! And it's even (barebones) #mainline Linux!
