If anyone is interested, I'm very slightly tweaking web interface using a user stylesheet, that you can apply with extension (privacy minded fork).

The stylesheet is in a github gist, which you can add to stylus and it will be periodically updated from there.

If you like like drawings, Josan Gonzalez's are really good.

Ok, this is creepy. enticing me to go back to using its official calendar app (I'm using ).

Seems will soon get a redesigned interface. Just today thinking about how standards imposed by Google become features we look elsewhere.

Just found out that does not support sending using third-party SMTP, as I'm used to do on gmail.

While still doesn't officially support Linux with its IMAP/SMTP bridge application (there is a beta, though) and it requires a paid account, there's an interesting open-source third-party bridge called Hydroxide.

Please watch episode "Friendface". Very contemporary indeed.

Episode intro here:

So it appears that the editor is now considered "legacy" and a new version is being tested as a beta, but it will be closed source. Also not entirely sure if it will be standalone or not.

I'm starting to thing it was not a good choice to write the book using Gitbook. Luckily it is still mostly Markdown in the end.
