The next beta version of #Signal will be version 7.0.0.
There's a good reason for the round number. This will be the first version where usernames and phone number privacy are available outside of the staging environment.
From this version on, you'll be able to talk to people on Signal without revealing your phone number, and also, you may use Signal without revealing to people who have your number saved that you do.
This is huge.

Most people following probably know some of this.

For the rest of us, @itsfoss has a great break down and more detailed look, at the differences between VS-Code and VS-Codium.

In basic, both are free and open source. However, Microsoft owns VS-Code, which has telemetry elements enabled by default and contains some non-open bits.

Unfortunately, it never gets too repetitive to remember: this #Vivaldi browser is **not** #FreeSoftware ( #FreeAsInFreedom for users), nor even #OpenSource (a more practical technical approach), and claiming this program is such a good thing, literally under a "It's FOSS" title, does not help uninformed users understand possible consequences, even with a simple warning line at the end. There are plenty of #FOSS browsers to write about, many of which deserve much more praise.
