New: Collabora Office for Android

Filed under
Android
LibO

We are excited to announce a complete new version of Collabora Office for Android, available now in Google Play, with the following main improvements:

- A great looking interface, easy to use with just one hand on your phone
- Editing of complex office documents, not just viewing
- Now re-uses the same technology as Collabora Online.

In common with other Collabora Productivity products, this new Android release enables people to edit their documents without compromising on privacy. There is no longer a reason to hand over your data to get rich mobile editing.
The new release marks the end of a period of rewriting important parts of the application. We now share much of the code and user experience from Collabora Online’s collaborative editor as well as Collabora Office 6.2 for displaying the documents.

Venturing out

Plasma 5.18 LTS Beta has been released, which brings many exciting new features to a computer near you, especially if you’re upgrading from our previous LTS release, Plasma 5.12. Of course for us developers this now means that a stable git branch has been created and we can work on new stuff on master to eventually become Plasma 5.19, scheduled for an early June 2020 release. This blog post is less about KDE code, though. Read more

Games: Planetary Sanitations Inc., Terminal Phase, The Humble Europa Universalis IV Bundle and Half-Life

  • Planetary Sanitations Inc, a free and open source world exploration mecha roguelike

    A game I completely forgot to cover some time ago is Planetary Sanitations Inc., a free and open source roguelike that has you exploring different worlds. As you explore, you piece together a mech unit from various modules, each of which can be destroyed individually. Thankfully, even though I forgot about it there was a big update to it recently which popped up in my feed so here we are. It's another game made with Godot Engine, with the source code available up on GitLab. The recent update to it brings in some first steps towards polishing the experience with a proper starting menu and a small tutorial.

  • Terminal Phase, a space shooter you can play in a Terminal window

    Ever wanted to play a space shooter in your Terminal window? Well, now you can with Terminal Phase which was announced recently. The developer, Christopher Lemmer Webber, is a name some of you might know as they're involved in the ActivityPub specification and they're the co-founder of GNU MediaGoblin amongst other things. Terminal Phase was actually released as a result of hitting a goal on their Patreon page, funding their work in the free software community.

  • The Humble Europa Universalis IV Bundle is live ready to take your time away

    That's a pretty ridiculously good deal, considering just how much playable content is included with all of that together. As usual though, there's higher tiers as well. If you pay more than the average there's also: Europa Universalis IV: Rights of Man, Europa Universalis IV: Mare Nostrum, Europa Universalis IV: The Cossacks, Europa Universalis IV: Common Sense and Europa Universalis IV - El Dorado.

  • The original Half-Life games are now free to play until Half-Life: Alyx launches

    Valve have made their original Half-Life titles all the way up to Half-Life 2: Episode Two free to play for a few months. This is to build up excitement for their VR-only title, Half-Life: Alyx, which releases in March. Which we still don't know if it will support Linux or not, I'll be speaking to Valve more about that closer to the time. It likely all depends on the state of SteamVR at the time.
