Hello and welcome to another edition of This Week in Solid!

Solid is a set of open specifications, built on existing open standards, that describes how to build applications in such a way that users can conveniently switch between data storage providers and application providers and take the data generated along.

This is a weekly summary of Solid progress.

Want something mentioned? Contact the Solid Manager at info@solidproject.org. This Week in Solid is openly developed on GitHub. If you find any errors in this week’s issue please submit a pull request.

Want to get involved? Contributions are welcome.

Every Thursday there is an hour-long public call where newcomers can introduce themselves, anyone can ask general questions about Solid, and we recap the weeks’ works on Solid.

Tune in at this line:

Solid Implementations

The Node Solid Server 5.2.0 was released. This includes a new version of the Solid Data Browser and a much needed fix to the handling of content-types.

If you have any new apps, Pods, or identity providers, or there are updates to existing Solid implementations, make sure to add them to the list so they get included in next week’s edition.

Until next week!
