0.30.0 has been released today πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ with a big refactoring under the hood, a lot of bug fixes, better room alias management, minor design improvements, Linux desktop notifications aaaaaaaand Linux arm64 support. 🐧

In theory it should run on or but I have no device to test it. Anyone here who wants to try and send me screenshots? πŸ™‚

last time flutter wasnt usable on arm64. besides that i own the pinephone to not have dependencies to google for example.

@stereo fluffychat for Linux shouldnt have any google dependencies. The (opensource) programming language and the framework is built by google developers.

So I assume that you also wouldnt use software written in Go? πŸ˜‡ It is your choice. I try to avoid google too but I think there are no evil programming languages

@krille
i know, i know. having finally gtk and libhandy on the phone feels great. i think its a difference in effect between ui toolkit and a progr. language.

@krille I'll boost, there's probably someone somewhere on my follow list who might want to try it out.

@krille i have some problems with it; "** (fluffychat:2): WARNING **: 22:31:40.615: Failed to start Flutter renderer: GL-Kontext kann nicht erstellt werden" window remains white :( flutter on aarch64 is a little bit beta?

I'm curious, @krille, is on GNU/Linux does Flutter get translated to native UI framework (e.g. GTK+ or Qt) or is it Electron?

@mcsinyx flutter renders inside of a gtk window with glfw or something native. So it is a little bit like a gaming engine

@krille just installed on my pinephone, looks and works great 😁
@krille Screenshots didn't appear to attach to first post for some reason so here they are πŸ˜… (I'm using Phosh on postmarketOS btw)

@krille However, connecting to my server "7fach.de" still does not work 😞 β€” gives "Hoppla, etwas ist schiefgelaufen"

I suspect it chokes on the leading "7" in the domain name

@krille It's working for me on the PP with Manjaro phosh, installed via flathub. I can connect to my own homeserver without problems and send/read encrypted messages!

Awesome work!

@krille Avatars don't seem to load though, neither they do on the linux desktop version.

@krille Flatpak works fab on my pinephone running Fedora. Really well done!
