The Kdenlive team released the 19.04 "Refactored Edition" version of the popular video editor today. Look forward to automatic audio-video splitting, configurable timeline layouts, different layout modes, and much more in their biggest release ever.

If anyone knows #Go and is looking for a project to help out with, Go-based #Signal protocol implementation library and a native #SailfishOS Signal client using it are in dire need of love:

Yes, I also prefer truly decentralized protocols, but Signal is where it's at currently with a lot of people, and it's way better than other popular options... So, we need independent clients.

We've reached a point where we'd like to start #hiring developers to work on the #WriteFreely roadmap 💻 :writefreely2:

This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.

I'll have more details soon, but especially if you're a #Go / #Golang developer and want to work on a growing #fediverse project, I'd love to hear from you!

@alcinnz Fair!

Now you have me idly wondering how much power a 5G cell tower draws, and whether it's dramatically more than previous generations...

I have the impression that any improvements in battery power density in the mobiles themselves, are are going towards processing power and nicer displays (and maybe the comms), not longer battery life.

This was long overdue but super cool to see nonetheless, nightly will now allow you to disable addons when in private mode.

It's possible to even do it on an one-by-one basis, meaning you can leave your ad blocker running, but disable the rest.

Great work !

I meant to say scriptability, not serviceability, damn autocorrect. :-)


@kingu_platypus_gidora Even when they do contribute, it's them who gets to define what's 'worthy' of solving or how far you're allowed to go in solving world's problems. Far different than if they actually paid their fair share in taxes.

Also, this in particular might have something to do with them noticing the Yellow Vests and trying to distract by this one-off gesture.

Yes, only Firefox for now. As for serviceability, not yet, but it's on the radar. One thing to note is that multiple profiles still work with containers, so it might be a complement, rather than a replacement as well.


Aaah, yeah, I meant the addon. I think it's worth a try. It sounds like it might be more convenient than profiles for you.


Fair. What I like about containers is that I don't have to launch a new instance of the browser. I can just open a particular tab in a new container.


@alatiera What annoys me most about this sort of attitude, is that there already is a 'single' desktop on & - if you're afraid of making a choice and want it made for you, fine. But what I really hate is when people want everything to be the same as they know. No, I don't want FLOSS desktops to be like the Windows desktop, or macOS, I like my choice. Thanks.

Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
