Solus boosted

Just built my first desktop computer and gotta say it was a great experience. Installed Solus for my OS after a lot of research and haven't been disappointed. They're killing it with Budgie and the whole experience. I just found my go-to distro.

Translations now sorted properly. It'll now use our budgie-translations GitHub repository at github.com/getsolus/budgie-tra. Sorting out automatic repository pushing soon then I'll be updating the budgie-desktop repository itself. - @JoshStrobl

Indexing is done. Moved over new translations and going to perform a re-index shortly. Worst case scenario is I reset that and push directly to the GH repo, then rebase the Weblate one. - @JoshStrobl

Taking slightly longer than anticipated. Might've forgotten how long it can take for it to index all the languages.

First world "problem": Having so many supported languages that Weblate takes a bit and forces you to get up and go make some more coffee while you wait. - @JoshStrobl

⚠️PSA⚠️ Making some component changes in the Weblate for Budgie right now to facilitate the use of a dedicated translations GH repo. Your contributions will be retained, but things might be a bit finnicky for 30min or so. - @JoshStrobl

2019 is going to be a transformative year for Solus. Read about some of the things we have planned at getsol.us/2019/01/14/2019-to-v

Just a heads up, we're deferring our sync to the stable repo until sometime tomorrow to provide some extra time to validate a protobuf stack upgrade. If you use an affected package (Compiz, Mumble, VLC, etc.) and you're on unstable repo, please update and test!

Our blog post on what's coming up in 2019 is coming out on Monday so keep your eyes on that blog page! I'm even going to make a fancy roadmap page! getsol.us/blog/

We now have another new Global Maintainer! World, meet Rune (a.k.a ermo in IRC). He's been responsible for supporting, integrating, and documenting Samba, as well as supporting Kodi on !

If you'd like to read about him or follow him on his social media, check out our Team page! getsol.us/solus/team/

Bryan and I have another Solus Hackfest coming up! On Saturday, Jan. 12th at 10am EST, 3pm UTC we'll be working on the new Search APIs for the Help Center as well as continuing the Sysfs work for Linux Hardware Qualifier!

2018 has been an amazing year for our project. It's brought us new and improved tooling, fresh experiences in , and new faces to our community. Read all about our development efforts in 2018 with This Year in : 2018 Edition! getsol.us/2018/12/31/this-year

Okay, mini-vacation is over. But before I spill the beans on all things, we gotta round out the year with a This Year in Solus of all the accomplishments and development efforts of 2018. So I better get to writing!

So just a warning but once I'm back from this mini-vacation things are gonna be going crazy in land for the next few weeks.

Don't pay attention to our blog. Nope, don't do it. Also don't pay attention to the download page, nothing is gonna happen in Jan. there. Nope.

@codythedragonrude 2019 will be the year of the wrecking ball! Nothing shall be sacred.

@HobbySurgeon The instance auth code is presented in the web interface of your instance (like mastodon.cloud). The account setup in Tootle should open up a browser tab with your instance, follow the steps there and it'll present you with a code to enter into Tootle. - @JoshStrobl

Global Maintainers have been critical to our ability to bring you consistent and reliable package updates, resolving issues for our users, and helping expand our repository with well maintained, well integrated software!

I'd like everyone to give a warm welcome to our newest Global Maintainer, Friedrich (a.k.a Girtablulu in IRC). He's been responsible for supporting wide variety of packages and stacks like Brother printer drivers, Rust+cargo, and more!

@FortyTwo No. We only support IRC at this moment in time.

For translations, I've made a lot of headways on the Weblate deployment. I still need to write some daemons and deploy Celery to the server for background task processing (really needed for Budgie Desktop because of the sheer amount of translations will cause a timeout otherwise). Hopefully should have a usable Weblate up soon(TM) so translators can start updating the Budgie Desktop translations.
