Another Medium alternative on the Fediverse is Plume, which is also a federated long form text platform.

Plume's status is slightly unclear as the official website has a message on the front page saying the project is not currently maintained: joinplu.me

Can anyone give an update on what's going on there?

Updated to recent version of from @fdroidorg recently. I was surprised!! 😲 Glide typing has improved significantly. 👍

I can easily forget that Google's proprietary keyboard exists and enjoy swipe typing even on custom with Florisboard. 🎉 No or hacking necessary.

➡️ f-droid.org/en/packages/dev.pa

To enable glide typing, open up Florisboard and check Gestures tab.

The new #florisboard beta release is amazing!

Improved glide typing accuracy, and an extended symbol layout!
This replaces gboard completely for me in functionality.

I highly suggest everyone to try it out.

@privacytools had issues with not having access to all of its infrastructure. Domain name was one of the pieces not owned by PrivacyTools. Rebranding under a new name suggested by the community was in discussion. That discussion is now over and privacytools.io started to redirect its visitors to privacyguides.org/

Other services provided under privacytools.io domain should start migrating soon.
