Hi Team. I found this in the forums. @Richard suggested that perhaps it was a request for a "Geany" update to the repos. viewtopic.php?f=55&t=47665&p=477031#p477031

What think, ye?

Don't think it will fix any missing plugin issues, and I would prefer it show up in Debian first:

https://repology.org/metapackage/geany/versions

For now:

ffmpeg-4.1 because Handbrake needs it first.
Handbrake-1.2.0

@stevo... a quick question regarding adobe(anything but flash in particular). Do you recommend using adobe flash? I tend to avoid adobe like the plague because of their anti-linux posture and also the number of security fiascos they've had. I have removed Adobe from my MX installs and replaced the only thing I need with pepperflash (like I have used for years). I have not noticed any problem with that switch. Is there a potential problem I ought to be aware of?

I use BBC and their videos seem to work fine with pepperflash in Chromium.

Weather loops work fine as well (at least NOAA and Intellicast do).

Because I'm independently poor :eek: ... I don't need/use online banking (I know I'm a Luddite :p ).
