Byzantium continues to march closer to its release for the Librem 5 with UI changes and new apps being worked on.

Cellular, Wifi, and Bluetooth can now be software disabled with a simple tap; a long tap now takes you to settings.

Auto-rotate will allow you to flip your phone in any orientation. Including flipping the phone upside down.

Keyboard styles are being added. With a bit of css, you can completely customize just about every aspect of the keyboard’s appearance.

If you desire a different language, the keyboard now handles having a lot of different layouts.

Stream is a new app being tested internally. This Web Video Browser lets you search the web and returns video results without advertising, tracking, recommendations, nor comments.

Progress continues to make the Librem 5 more versatile by supporting more M.2 wireless cards. This will allow us to support additional M.2 cards with a variety of different specs.

The camera app Megapixels will soon find its way into our update repositories.

As more applications are made pixel-perfect on the Librem 5 they will be added to the default lineup of apps.

All the source for all these projects is conveniently uploaded complete with a searchable index that makes it simple to find projects, issues or individual contributors. Find out more at
