Jabberia and the Pumpiverse
Developer of the Dianara pump.io client. Mageia GNU/Linux + KDE Plasma user. I also use Debian GNU/Linux and Archlinux. Jabber/XMPP chatter, Pumper, C/C++/Qt coder. Pump.io User Guide: https://pumpio.readthedocs.io/en/latest/userguide.html This is an alternate account to email@example.com =)
The pumpiverse is a better place when we use titles in posts
Please, use them whenever possible, they really help =)
>> Jason Self:
“Update the web UI to include an option for a title when posting a note. It'd go a long way to what you're asking.”
Believe me, people often don't use the title field when posting images (which allows titles), or when using almost any other client (which often support titles on anything).
Hence the 'whenever possible' =)
This is mostly addressed to people who don't realize that using titles has advantages. We don't necessarily need to have a "Meanwhile" full of "a note, a note, a note", it can be much more useful.
Obviously if someone has something against using titles, by all means, don't use them...

The little things...
I've spent some time today polishing a feature of Dianara that will be appreciated by 1% of its users, 1% of the time xD
Now, posts which have a non-media file attached (that is, not 'image', 'audio' or 'video' types, but the generic 'file' type), will show the icon matching the file type, taken from your system's iconset of course =)
Also, when clicking on the icon or the Download button to save the file to your computer, the suggested filename will have the proper extension. Until now, these kinds of attachments always suggested the ".bin" extension due to a server limitation.
Sadly, Pump.io's capability to attach audio, video and other files is rarely used by people at the moment, but when the time comes, this will make these posts look better!

Auralquiz 1.0.0 released
The big 1.0!! ...is basically 0.9.0 with minor updates and some completed translations :p
It's also the last version to support Qt 4. Next releases will support Qt 5 only.
Auralquiz is a simple music quiz game.

I'm looking into building a Qt-based ActivityPub library for the future Dianara (my Pump.io client), and hopefully, any other client (Pumpa!), bot, utility, etc which wants to use it =)
I've wanted to split Dianara's Pump networking logic into a library for a long time, but now this will make more sense. We'll see!
Having a Qt-based library is a great idea! That's something I've been thinking as well for some time. It wouldn't make sense for us to implement it separately. And frankly, given my lack of free time these days, I probably wouldn't have time to do it anyway.

If your website greets me with a popover covering the whole content, urging me to "subscribe" or "follow" you on some social silo, chances are I'll close that browser tab and never visit your site again.

Dianara 1.3.7 is out!
Hi there, inhabitants of the pumpiverse! o/
I've just released a new version of Dianara, my Pump.io client for desktop computers.
Not much new, mainly a reworked image viewer that now allows zooming the image with the mouse wheel (or equivalent touchpad mechanism), dragging the image around also with the mouse, shows the zoom level, and actually rotates animated images correctly =)
- Fixed case-insensitive sorting of contacts in auto-completion lists, when typing @ while creating a post. This means that “Person A” will appear next to “person b”, not after “Z-contact”.
- Your server's version will be shown in the log.
As for the future, this will be the last of the 1.3.x series. Next release will be 1.4.0 and will not support Qt 4.x.
Don't go bending your graphics card!
Just don't =)
