News and updates on core team and community development from the past week. As always, if we’ve missed something important, let us know!
It was a quiet week for big updates from the team, but this is a good time to remind everyone that Sia v1.5.5 came out recently.This release includes new download code that improve throughput and consistency, as well as the usual bug fixes and minor improvements. For more details, check out Matt’s blog post.

Skyfeed had a big announcement to start off the week.
Are you tired of having 10 different social media apps installed on your phone, just to follow the content you like? A brand new SkyFeed feature could fix that — introducing Bridges! Starting with the next major SkyFeed release, you will be able to follow users and topics (specific subreddits, Hacker News) from within the SkyFeed mobile app! This works using the combined magic of different APIs, RSS Feeds and some cutting-edge client-side scraping technology. It will even be possible to comment on or react to posts from other social networks and then other SkyFeed users following you will see them too! Please note that the design is still WIP and not yet approved by Julian, our design magician.
