Goober in maintenance mode

I’m going to officially put Goober into a maintenance only mode. The framework I used to initially create Goober for Android has progressed such that I feel some significant refactoring is in order however I’m not ready to tackle it at this time. I’ve got another project spinning up which I’ll discuss more in the near future. For now though Goober will only being getting critical bug fixes.

pnut-matrix 1.0.0

The pnut-matrix bridge has now reached 1.0. It now runs using pnut.io app streams for improved performance, includes administrative controls for managing bridged rooms, and syncs pnut.io avatars and display names to matrix. You can find the latest release at https://gitlab.dreamfall.space/thrrgilag/pnut-matrix and join the chat at #pnut-matrix:monkeystew.net or https://patter.chat/room/999

Goober 0.7.0

The latest Goober for Android has been released to the Google Play store. This update adds the ability to hide images in the timeline by default and a new profile view allowing you to view a users posts, follow, mute, or block. I also added a couple of tweaks to the post actions menu mostly for myself but perhaps others might find them useful as well.

Ending BlackBerry 10 dev

I’ve finally reached the point where I’m ready to discontinue support for BB10 in my various app development efforts. Specifically those projects are Goober for BB10 (a native client for pnut.io) and Renamed Todo (a task list app using todo.txt format). I hope they’ve been useful for the handful of users I’ve had and interacted with over the years, I know I’ve enjoyed building them. But the time has come to retire them and allow myself to focus on other platforms.

monkeystew.social is shutting down

I’ve decided to retire my Friendica instance at monkeystew.social. Mostly to free up some resources from my server and have one less thing to worry about and manage. I’m not going away from the social web, just coming at it a little differently now. If you’re following me from Diaspora, I’ve dusted off my old profile: thrrgilag@shrekislove.us If you’re following me from GNU social or Mastodon: mastodon.social/@thrrgilag If you’re following me from Friendica you can continue to follow me at either of the two profiles linked above.
