I decided to start sharing parts of #fediQuest as they become mature.
Today, I am releasing a #Golang library for decoding ActivityStreams 2.0 objects into native Go objects and also for encoding Go objects into ActivityStreams 2.0 JSON objects.
The usage is your typical Go Marshal/Unmarshal, (see tests for examples).
The license is copyleft (AGPLv3).
Your feedback (and a star) are welcome :-)
We're halfway through the year and it is a good moment to review what KDE's app developers have been up to these past months. Check out all the new stuff in Krita, LabPlot, GCompris, KStars, and more:
I need to rename this Emacs package before releasing it on Melpa:
The package goal is to organize git repositories in a single directory by a command allowing you to jump between git repos and clone new repositories from remote forges.
I’d like to find a descriptive name involving a terrible pun. The lamest, the better.
Do you have any fun ideas? (the pun will be properly credited if used of course!)
#Safari discussion on Hacker News:
OP: Safari's buggy and lags behind on web standards.
Response: Maybe you shouldn't be using all the newest features that Safari doesn't support in your app, Safari only supports features that make sense.
#Linux discussion on Hacker News:
OP: NVidia has a buggy support of Wayland in their Linux driver.
Response: Maybe you shouldn't be using Linux then.
Me: logs off to preserve sanity.

“Vetting the cargo”
“There are many ways to improve confidence in the security of a chunk of code. Writing that code in a memory-safe language is one such way […] But more than that is required and, in the end, there is no substitute for simply looking at the code and understanding what it does. […]
The cargo vet mechanism, built into Rust's Cargo dependency manager and build system, is meant to help with the task.”
This week in KDE: non-blurry XWayland apps!
For some reason Splinter Zone lost one review and is now again below the 10 review threshold on Steam.
If you've bought the game and enjoyed it, I would greately appreciate you leaving a positive review!

What if Firefox and Chromium placed a year-long moratorium on all new browser features unrelated to security, accessibility, and internationalization? Effort not spent on those initiatives could be re-directed towards bugfixes.
Defining the word “major” might be hard but I think it’s an interesting idea.
I’m not too worried about including Safari since it could spend those months catching up.
