Anybody know of a good C torrent library? Considering using Transmission but haven't decided yet.

Gonna write a wrapper for Rust to use in a side-project.

I've been hacking on the matrix client for the last couple of days as a form of procrastination.
It's been fun, I like QT quite a bit.

Also if anyone knows any decent Markdown libraries in C(++) that would be a big help! Cmark is just not cutting it.

Just released: KDE's Plasma 5.14 desktop comes with new features and a much polished environment

Plasma 5.14 simplifies managing multiple displays thanks to its new Display Configuration widget; global menus now work also with GTK applications like GIMP; a new safeguard feature warns you if other users are logged in when you log out; and Discover now lets you install Snaps from all available channels, orders software by release date, and shows package dependencies.

I wonder if the death of Google+ will cause people to move to the Fediverse.
Maybe not most end users but apparently some orginazations like GNOME had a big presence there that might translate well to say Diaspora.
