I'll keep the Intel and Apple Silicon builds as separate / non-universal for now because my distrib scripts as pretty simple.

In theory, it might be possible to merge the separately built binaries together, although not entirely sure what ramifications that has. Something to investigate on a later date.

Got a bunch of bug fixes for you in v1.0.3:

- Improved font glyph caching (more robust, faster, uses less memory).
- Percent-encoding URLs copied to clipboard.
- Trimming feed entry titles.
- Quotes vs. empty lines.
- Redirection in a background tab.
- macOS: "gopher:" scheme handling.

- Omit default port from Gemini URLs.
- Added a build for Apple Silicon (macOS 11.0). Note that this is a separate download.

Some M1 goodness. 🍎

I'll probably make a separate arm64 build for Big Sur and later, in addition to the current Intel 10.13 build.

Hello everyone! I'm happy to announce that the KONPEITO Winter 2021 tape is now available on gemini:// - this marks the one-year anniversary of the KONPEITO project.

Thanks for sticking with me, and thanks for your support of the Gemini protocol, it has really made huge strides since this project began.

I released v0.12.1 today.

- Artifacts in Unicode box-drawing characters.
- Show 'text/*' as plain text.
- Truncated tab titles.
- MIME hook issues.

Amfora's subscriptions feature is now in master! This is very exciting. Documentation will be written soon. Anyone savvy enough to compile Go code is encouraged to use, test it out, and report bugs.


⭐️ Pro tip: Subscribe to new headings on "about:version" to see Lagrange change log entries in Feeds.

Heading subscriptions use the same system as Gemini feeds, except entries are dated based on discovery time.

On the first refresh it just stores all the existing headings without creating any feed entries.

If you look in feeds.txt, URI fragments are used internally to keep track of headings text, so this'll only work for uniquely named ones. (Internal only: fragments won't work anywhere else.)

MIDI music is a good example of how MIME hooks are useful.

- Each OS handles MIDI differently, if at all.
- It's niche so adding the FluidSynth library could be considered bloat.
- A default soundfont would have to be included as a resource.
- Personal preferences vary wrt soundfonts and effects — would need a complex config UI?
- Nice to control music playback in the inline audio player.

I elaborate on the mechanism here:
