Quite literally enabling "32bit" support in most of our packages is a single `emul32 : yes` entry in our package.yml. Worst case is we dynamically set different compile-time flags. It's all built from the same package.yml, same version, same source, as the main package.

So with all the news about Ubuntu's 32-bit / multilib future deprecation / reduced support, I'd like to remind people that is happy to provide multilib libs for Steam, WINE, and specific binary compatibility, and we're typically able to do it with such little to no effort.

The sync is now complete! Please report issues you encounter to or create a topic on as I'll be keeping an eye on both to push out hot-fixes. - Joshua

2. It's showing up as coming from SendGrid for me. Is it not for you? I re-checked the smtp settings on our Flarum (and hilariously enough broke it) and it matched SendGrid's recommended settings.
