Pushed out some updates to Sublime Ads today. Happy to finally get them out. A little out of time now, but will write a small post about the changes a little later and update the "Updates" page with even more tweaks/details that are not yet documented for embeds.

Gluon 2021.2 has been released for Android 🥳 Release notes are here.

Gluon is ready for the Micro.blog October 2021 Photoblogging Challenge. Enjoy and happy picture taking! ✌️❤️ 📷

Just released a new Gluon beta for Android, 2021.2 build 47. There is now the ability to edit replies for paid accounts (find it in the "more" screen) amongst many other changes from the last beta.

Hope to officially release this next week ✌️

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.
