The @SolusProject Patreon is now at 376 Patrons and $1,319 USD per month. Significant drop since our blog post (1200 USD) but I want to see both of those numbers hit zero! If you're a Patron, please cancel your donation ASAP and read

At present, Patreon has been taking upwards of 9 days to respond to my support tickets regarding Solus and they only are getting back to them after I practically necro the tickets.

In case you have missed it and you are currently a Patron of our Patreon ( ), please cancel your donation and read for more info.

Patreon has been unwilling to assist us despite multiple support tickets. - @JoshStrobl

Been working on improving iconography for the Software Center under Solus Plasma Edition (testing). Now using a solus-sc-icons package based on Papirus (without bringing in the entirety of Papirus) for Third Party icons, as well as a multitude of changes to component icons to maximize coverage. 🔥

New goodies coming to unstable at the moment, with a proper Samba 4.8.6 upgrade! Huge thanks to ermo for his constant maintenance, enablement, integration and testing of Samba! - Joshua

🗹 Updated artwork
🗹 Updated baselayout
🗹 Updated branding packages
🗹 Patched os-installer
🗹 Cooked test ISOs for branding validation

Guess all that's left to do is selectively sync these to stable, cook and test stable ISOs, then start our usual release process!

Update on our Developer Tooling migration and upcoming ISOs. Linking to Google+ since 500 characters isn't remotely enough:

Update regarding likely last phase of migration, which is new ISO. We're currently tweaking our solbuild images (used by the builder and packagers) and getting them updated to resolve likely the last developer-oriented tooling update. The goal is to focus on one item or phase, get everything resolved for that phase, then move onto the next. Once this is complete, we'll be updating branding packages and cooking new 3.9999 ISOs. Really looking forward to getting those out to everyone! - Joshua

Our package repo migration is now available via a system update! We strongly encourage you to perform this upgrade as soon as possible. Should you have any issues performing this update, don't hesitate to reach our via our support channels!

After a bunch of testing and some patches to our package manager, now in a much happier state with our migration. Going to be deploying this to shannon / stable repo after we all get some much needed sleep! Thanks to all our testers in Solus-Dev IRC! - Joshua

Ran into a snag during testing. Holding off pushing change to stable until we refine the process a bit. - Joshua

New eopkg/pisi update to switch over to new package repo should be incoming in next few hours. We'll have a blog up on it as well! - Joshua

Documentation for updating Arcanist and development package repos to the new Phabricator is now up

Users currently testing out the Phabricator URL switching script in IRC. Will have instructions up when proven successful beyond my testing. - Joshua

Update on Phabricator: Ran into a snag regarding some repo indexing that's now been sorted. New OAuth bits in place and git-http-backend up as well. Wanting to get docs up on moving to new Phab URLs before considering it "ready". - Joshua
