I just signed.
 
In today's Queen's Speech, the Government announced its rebranded and upgraded Snoopers' Charter with even more powers for the police and GCHQ.

Can you sign our petition against the new Snoopers' Charter then share it to your friends?

Best thing I've seen in a while. It doesn't solve the issue of identity, but getting reliable encryption to be the norm is a fantastic goal.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).

Been a busy busy last week for me .. ergo the relative quietude from my side. I am transitioning to a new job this month, which I'll blog about later in the week, which is giving me some exciting new opportunities to contribute to free software in meaningful ways.

I also pushed out the topic survey for next week's episode of Luminosity of Free software today to all the show's patrons to vote on, and I think this next episode will be pretty fantastic. Speaking of which, we're less than $15 / episode shy of a new goal I put up on Patreon due to viewer demand: an audio-only stream with RSS feed. If we hit the $100 / episode mark, I'll set up a stream of just the audio that you can listen to at your leisure, podcast style.

If you'd like to help make that happen, the link to become a patron of the show is below. Cheers!
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!

Here's what we're doing "next" .... help us spread the word, get involved and back the project to make Roundcube rock for the next 10 years!

I've been doing lots more work on Cubiquity for Unreal Engine 4 but it's definitely working towards a first release now. There's always more work to do though.
 
Matt updates us on the latest developments in getting #Cubiquity working with +Unreal Engine. Featuring explosions!

As a result of the recent European elections, the members of the new commission are all leaning to their right.
