Thanks, but no thanks, Microsoft. True support for GNU/Linux requires supporting users' freedom, not just allowing them to run your proprietary program. https://u.fsf.org/35q
Calindori 1.2 is out, the first stable release as a KDE application.
If you are running Linux on mobile you will probably find it useful. But you can also use it on desktop, since it is based on Kirigami, the KDE Framework for mobile and convergent desktop.
Coder's IDE KDevelop had a new release tonight during #akademy2020.
"This release brings half a year of work, focused mainly on stability, performance, and future maintainability"
Python 3.9. PHP 7.1's syntax. Improved CMake project support.
Grab the AppImage or distro package.
Today I will be talking at KDE's Akademy about getting KDE Software on Android
If you are interested in mobile-desktop convergence, then you may also be interested in the talk I will be giving in a few hours in #akademy2020. Join me at 16.30 UTC.
I am looking for a #foss google forms alternative, e.g. limesurvey, nextcloud forms, offered as a service by a collective of volunteers. Any suggestions?

The level of stockholm syndrome among techies is fascinating:
"Google charges a few dollars for every 1,000 times the map is accessed by users. On the afternoon of the first day after the web site went live, Wu received a bill for $2,000. The next day, the total jumped to $26,000."
"Google also helped out by waiving Maps charges in the interest of fighting Covid-19."
If only there was some other, free, map. If only...
Α monumental moment of convergence.
I was testing Plasma Phone Book on my desktop when I realized that my Nextcloud contacts had been synchronized.
First, I thought that I had added
my NC account into the "Online Accounts" in Plasma Settings. But that was not the case.
Looking into ~/.local/share I found out that it was the KDE Connect plugin that synched the contacts from my mobile (where DAVx5 was doing the job).
