Public Transport 0.1.1 was published 🚌
First up today we have Public Transport, a desktop and mobile app for tracking real-time public transportation information. It is Maeve’s first publication on Flathub, and is being used as a means to learn Rust. It currently only supports transport info from Germany, but that could change, especially if people in other regions contribute to the open source project.
Crow Translate 2.9.7 was published 🗣️
Crow Translate is a very handy open source translation tool which uses Google, Yandex, Bing, Libretranslate and Lingva to provide the translations. We tested Crow Translate on our system, and we’re very impressed by how functional and useful it is out of the box.
Simply type a phrase in the left box, configure which language(s) to translate to, and the right box will show the translated text. Even better, press the play button and you’ll get a clear audio rendition of the translation.
Meridius 2.4.16 was published 🎶

Floorp claims to be a “Firefox based browser with excellent privacy” and is developed by a Japanese community of students. Floorp has a more Chromium-like user interface, but built on the underpinnings of Mozilla Firefox.
utm_no 1.60.30 was published 🕵🏽♂
utm_no is a background application which intercepts the clipboard to strip tracking information from URLs. That’s it, it’s very simple and unobtrusive, doing exactly what it claims. It’s the second application from Stuart Langridge – we previously mentioned Pick earlier this week.
Solarus Launcher 1.6.5 was published 🎮
Crankshaft 0.1.4 was published
Crankshaft is a tool for managing plugins installed into the Steam client from Valve. Once installed there’s some additional steps required which are detailed on the Crankshaft website.

Plugins can also tweak the lock screen and supplement the Steam user interface with other useful information.
That’s all for today!
