> Please don’t get acquired ~~by Apple~~
So that would be the biggest danger then of not being open-source: being bought, taken apart, and die in favor of an inferior competing software. It's a common business tactic.
Didn't the newly arrived CEO write an entire post about how he wants to continue Obsidian as it is right now?
See RedHat for an example of CEO praise for the way things are, followed by swift acquisition.
It's a negotiation tactic. Hopefully it's nothing tho.
Don't worry, we don't want that happening either.
That would be sad, but not the end of the world: emacs and neovim have good plugins to emulate pkm pretty well
The only problem with them is the learning curve
Where is everybody seeing Apple? i didnt understand
For those of us on the Apple ecosystem this would be lovely. Though I understand the concern.
I’m in the apple ecosystem and this would be a nightmare. The first thing they’d throw out would be the simple file system that underlies the whole thing.
Apple would destroy this software. They don't take something that exists and make it work better with Apple products, they take a few cool features from it and add it to their own app; then they delete the original app from the internet. See: Dark Sky. I don't want some linking features in Apple Notes, I want to keep Obsidian.
L has nothing on obsidian IMO maybe it was just the web version but when I tried it it felt like an unpolished UI class project

i’m “on the apple ecosystem” and don’t understand how this would be “lovely”? obsidian as it is works perfectly on my apple devices and i’d rather keep it exactly the way it is right now.
Handwritten notes 0.0
I would kill to have something like Xournal++ within Obsidian.
I wish. I've tried a plug in for writing but it's just not the same.
If it's this it's yet another time I wished my handwriting wasn't god awful. I've typed everything except my signature since my junior year of highschool, my writing is completely unreadable and so slow.
Happy for everyone else if it's true though, I'm sure it will be popular.
I love my Remarkable but it's no Obsidian.
I would be so happy!
Pre-alpha demo internal local network release
Finally. The Stabby Knife Update
Sideshow Bob will be pleased.
Been waiting for this one
My guess is handwriting in the next update
If this is right (write) i'm finally buying a tablet
If this is right (write) i'm finally installing on my tablet
And I was wrong lol 😂
old logo is sharper though lol
People on Twitter were saying this but it looks like a new logo since it has a rounded sqaure as the background, and one person guessed its supposed to resemble a pencil given the point and the phrase "stay sharp."
I hope they don't change the logo, it's so unique and iconic. And certainly not for some boring generic pencil icon...
It could be a diamond but you're right actually.
My guess is - it might be something related to Apple Pencil
handwriting / pencil support as part of a deal to buy them
Maybe they are working to support handwritten notes?
I'm getting No Man's Sky vibes with those twitter posts.
My only concern here is that Obsidian won't get too bloated with new features, if possible I'd prefer to have big things delegated to official plugins.
The app is really good though, keep up the good work!
Handwriting or widgets?
My guess is a simple new logo. Nothing more than that.
Would be super milquetoast if it’s just some ChatGPT / AI integration like every other notes app right now
New logo? I don‘t know about you, but I really love the Obsidian logo…
Ahh yes, my favorite type of video player, twitter.
Not Obsidian too...
Really out of the loop. What’s this about?
I'm sure nobody except the team knows. Just really dislike those kinds of hype.
Comes with the new version of iOs too.
If it referred to the new logo... that was anticlimactic.
