Why a new library you might ask? I wanted to migrate my app's secrets from the host to the sandbox and neither secret-service-rs nor libsecret provides an API for doing so.
I spent the last couple of days working on a library to store your secrets safely using either the Secret Service or the file backend (backed by the secrets portal, compatible with libsecret): https://crates.io/crates/oo7
Huge thanks to Sophie for implementing the file backend format, @maximiliano for handling the encrypted sessions.
Okay, it happened - Shortwave 3.0 is now available! 🎉
Get it while it's hot!
Druid (https://github.com/linebender/druid/) now uses portals for file chooser under linux thanks to ashpd 🎉
very happy to see my dumb projects being adopted by pretty interesting ones out there
fun fact: Authenticator was probably the first app to be released using libhandy4 (aka libhandy for gtk4) what later became libadwaita. So no gtk4 port, it was already using it.
