Hoping to make a small dent into the Gluon Universe this week and finish the Android update that’s been waiting for me...

Asking for anyone using Gluon, that app for Micro.blog… what is the one feature you would like to see improved in the next release (that reads… existing feature and not anything I haven’t shipped). Let me know.

If you’re running the Gluon TestFlight build for iOS, please download the App Store version. It’s due to expire and there won’t be a new build for another few weeks.

BTW, I was totally kidding about Gluon being built with Electron for the Mac. The dev team of one had a talk and decided it’s not worth the dev resources. No further long blog post required to talk about my reasoning.

Gluon for Mac, and other systems that do actually exist, will be powered by ELECTRON.

Starting next week, I’ll be removing Sentry from Gluon. It served a purpose at the beginning, but I just prefer real feedback from people using it. Plus it’s one less data point I need to worry about.

Have added Micro Camp info to Gluon. Wish I could have implemented it in a way that allows for a bit more free text… but, just follow the link to go to the site.

Planning a smaller release for Gluon on iOS in the coming month. Just a little tidy up here and there. No new features.

Also would love to add a "be kind" condition of use for the app, going beyond the Micro.blog guidelines.

Most important is documentation though.

New Gluon beta release for Android. 2021.2 Build 46.

There is a new beta release for Gluon on Android. It’s 2021.2 Build 46. It’s propagating on the Play Store at the moment. If you noticed, there was also build 45 which came out earlier this week.

Release notes:

A few more bits for me to do, but hoping to release this soon.

Enjoy it, and give it a go. It’s available as a open beta test so feel free to test it and let me know any feedback.

Making a start on the next Android version of Gluon 🥳
