The One with the Thoughts of Frans

A recent update broke Enpass. Hopefully it'll be fixed again soon, but in the meantime…
As one of the maintainers of KOReader, a versatile a document and image viewer, I'm proud to announce the latest release.
Since I don't use Steam that much I don't know when it was added, but it's nice that Steam is no longer tiny on my UHD monitor.
Such a rare occurrence, how nice that I can resize it, I thought. Until I actually tried to resize it.
UX
A new stable release, with support for BQ/Fnac devices!
Everything to the right of the breadcrumbs is a giant button to activate location entry. Very elegant.
To use the composite and transform transition it needs something to composite to.
The simplest way is to add synclient TapButton3=2 to your ~/.bashrc.
Many improvements to crengine, new MuPDF, and much more!
Windows and Mac have added some conveniences over the past decade that I'm missing to some degree.
It's quite simple to do but surprisingly hard to find.
Resolve the weird "ERROR: Missing required OpenGL extensions."
It's quite simple. Open Settings → Window Manager → Keyboard.
Usability on non-touch devices, an automatic setting for warmth, Pocketbook Inkpad 3 and an AppImage for Linux desktop computers.
Thanks to gnome-keyring you won't get a useful error message. If you uninstall it, you'll get the real culprit right where it matters, but in retrospect ssh-add gives you the same error message.
The basic problem: the various mics I own are all pretty terrible in their own way. This is how to lift it from unacceptable to bad, but similar principles apply to better mics as well.
