Good morning Fediverse! Expect more posting about MUDs from me today, I'm taking full advantage of it being Sunday and no one being home.

It feels good to start a branch of GNOME's #Epiphany web browser where the first commit is a big removal that kills the old, memory-hog ad blocker. Next up: add the new ad blocker, using #WevKit's built-in content extensions support.

The new code only needs to care about downloading the filtering rules and using the new API to compile and make WebKit use them.

For testing I have EasyList (what Ephy uses now) converted to the JSON format, and using @aral's Better ruleset is the final target 🧐

Only 40 hours to go in the fundraiser though, people have to be fast if they are interested in snagging a account!

I'm so old that when I was at university we still believed in the "semantic web".

Only two bug-free releases in the default install, in a heck of a long time!

The Pleroma project produces a FREE, multi-platform ActivityPub-based GNU Social-like social networking server. Our efforts emphasize portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security and integrated Finland memes. As an example of the effect Pleroma has, the popular federated emoji comes from Pleroma.

Pleroma is freely available from our download sites.

@ben That's a really nice idea! I'll do the same!

I will add three gift subscriptions to the pool, let me know if you want to join!

@ben Let me know if you have to turn people away!

For anyone interested in slower, more deliberate news coverage, consider subscribing to The Correspondent. They are in the last day of their pre-launch crowd funding campaign, and have a proven track record as a Dutch publication, and are expanding to the US.

If it sounds interesting, consider backing: thecorrespondent.com?ref=56e05

If it sounds interesting but you can't afford it right now, let me know and I'll gift you a subscription (as my finances allow).

So, I'm gonna toot about this one more time.

The beta for version 3.0 of the fish shell is out now.

I've worked on this thing for over a year, and there's a bunch of stuff in there I'm quite proud of. This feels quite great!

If you want, the release notes and tarballs and stuff are at
github.com/fish-shell/fish-she.

The #federated #blogging engine, #Plume, has got a fresh new website: joinplu.me.

It is one of the most complete #activitypub projects still in alpha stage, and looking very neat too.

Things to do to help the project:

- contribute financially
- make a translation
- launch an instance

There are already some stable and updated Plume #instances running right now: Fediverse.blog, or plume.mastodon.host, or plume.hostux.coffee, as well as plume.oa-dev.com, more soon.
