Gameplan today:

1. Work on some package upgrades that are a bit more tedious or long-running (e.g. mozjs + gjs, libwebkit-gtk, libgtk-3 itself, etc).
2. Go to store to get goodies.
3. Stream GNOME 3.34 stack upgrade over on twitch.tv/joshstrobl πŸŽ‰

Still around 4 hours or so out from starting the stream, but feel free to follow me on Twitch and turn on notifications to get notified on when I'm going live! I'll also keep peeps posted on my socials with any adjusted ETA!

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.

I've gone ahead and created a dedicated thread on our Flarum to help consolidate support queries for those which are not familiar or yet comfortable with our Development Tracker. discuss.getsol.us/d/937-03-05- - Joshua

The sync is now complete! Please report issues you encounter to dev.getsol.us/T7902 or create a topic on discuss.getsol.us as I'll be keeping an eye on both to push out hot-fixes. - Joshua

One of the largest syncs we've ever done to stable is happening right now, this might take a bit folks! We have the GNOME 3.32 stack upgrade, MATE 1.22.1 stack upgrade, KDE Applications 19.04 stack upgrade, and a bunch of package updates coming to you! πŸŽ‰

We're thrilled to announce the availability of the latest 3.32 Stack in the unstable repo, now available to brave testers! Read more about it at getsol.us/2019/04/25/gnome-of-

Going to start pushing the GNOME Stack upgrade + Budgie git builds for tomorrow. Keep an eye on our blog for news about it, I'll put one out when the stack upgrade is complete!

That's a wrap on the streaming, stack upgrade is now complete locally! Will be testing it and updating Budgie over next few days, keep an eye on the Solus blog for further updates on it. Thanks to all that tuned in to the over 35 hours of streaming! πŸŽ‰
