May your day be Merry and Bright.
Not a question, but a statement because I know the Devs read this post!!
Continued appreciation for UT, and huge thanks for all the time and effort you put into making UT what it is.
I think the top bar is one of the really good design features of UT: it breaks system settings into logical groups, and they're literally one slide of a finger away.
It also goes beyond just being a settings feature, with the calendar, and the email/matrix notification functions. Personally I'd like to see that extended more, but I know I'm in a minority on that one.
Making the top bar itself customizable is an interesting idea though: I never use the Files or Language settings, for example, but I know that other people do. And they're always available under the settings icon, of course, for those odd times when they are needed.
I was thinking @CiberSheep that, since inevitably it will only display a subset of the entire app group, perhaps it only needs to be a partial screen? If we take the cue from Unity7, it has a list of apps: the icon on the left, and the app name on the right. And the "View All Applications" option there too.
As you've probably realized, I took my inspiration from the screen which precedes the one we're working on:
Subsequently, I had the idea to conflate the two screens, but it's a tad heretical! I think the "Properties" button ought to go on the screen that appears when you tap and hold:
The controversial idea would be to lose the "Preview" function altogether: since the OS comes with fully fledged music and photo apps, I think "Preview" is redundant. :o
Thank you for your continuing work on the Onion Browser, it is very much appreciated.
I was delighted when I saw that they did!
I would have thought that those who are conscientious enough to use the onion browser would expect links to open in it.
I just saw a toot saying that there's an app for Nextcloud Talk for Sailfish... Perhaps it will come to UT in the fullness of time...?
Arthur Schiwon layer8.space/@blizzz: "Here comes another update of #Nextcloud Talk for #SailfishOS! Alpha 4 brings support for message replies and comes with a few fixes. Enjoy!"
I think it should be, yes.
This topic comes up from time to time.
Then some defend the Ubuntu badge.
Then there's discussion of other names... None of which can be used for various reasons, and none which will be used because someone will have nabbed it, it having already been published here.
I just hope they settle for something better than lomiri.
@firstname.lastname@example.org said on Mastodon:
I guess #Lomiri won't be so lightweight. It's a phone operating UI, so stuffed with graphical effects. It will be possible to run native #Wayland applications and #X11 applications via Xwayland or Xmir. There will be a set of native apps (telephone, browser, etc.) that will run in a special sandboxed setup (#libertine).
I am in fact quite curious, what hurdles (in terms of Ubuntu'isms) we will stumble over... I hope to have everything in #Debian for the #bullseye Debian release.
Oh that's interesting. Thanks for the info.
