Hi Everyone,

Welcome to a new edition of Logseq Times. In the past week, we have had quite a few events, such as the Las Vegas F1 testing being stopped early due to the wrong type of manhole covers, AI looking like it will take over all aspects of our lives (although how knows what will happen to PenAI now that Sam Altman has been ousted), the Icelandic volcano and climate change. Still, at least we have the last season of The Crown to look forward to.

What we also have to look forward to is another week of eventful news in the Logseq World.

Logseq Release

No new release this week. You can download the latest desktop and Android app from here.

Lost a member of the Logseq Team?

In my Sherlock Holmes or Byomkesh Bakshi, for my India-based (or fans of Big Bang) friends, investigation, it seems that a member of the Logseq team has moved on to new pastures. Good luck with the new adventure!

I am sure there will be a more official announcement in due course, so I have kept details to a minimum as it is more water-cooler talk on my part.

Long Form in Logseq

@Luhmann kindly contacted me and let me know that Seth Yuan had created a long-form plugin to enable us to see our notes differently and give them the feeling of prose instead of an outline.

The plugin can be found here, so if you want to transform your notes into prose, be sure to check it out. It is a paid plugin, but in my opinion, well worth it.

If you have any other useful comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Logseq Performance

OP asks an interesting question: “Is logseq performance really terrible when you get a notebook up to 1000+ pages or are there just loud complainers with very crappy laptops?”

Some of the responses include:

  • Yes, performance degrades as your KB grows
