Pending (as of Friday morning)
Note: Not all new plugins are available in the community list yet, as they need to go through code review first. You can manually install plugins that aren't in the community list yet by using the Beta Reviewer's Auto-update Tool. Note, though, that this is not as safe as waiting for them to go through code review.

Food For Thought
- Kepano, the CEO of Obsidian, wants to know what questions you have about his workflow so he can answer them in an upcoming article.
- Here's a split system for digital vs. analogue knowledge management.
- Some folks are deliberately avoiding plugins, which sparked some interesting discussion.
- The MacStories Shortcuts contest's "best productivity Shortcut" combines Calendar data with a meeting template to create the skeleton of a note.
- This week's edition is a bit abbreviated, sorry about that -- my kid got some wild bacterial infection that completely wiped out my Thursday, and I'm visiting family for Memorial Day weekend, which blows my Saturday morning, so the timing was a bit pinched. If you saw anything on the internet that looked like the sort of thing I would normally include but I missed it, please reach out so I can include it in next week's edition.
Note: There are a couple of affiliate links & codes scattered around, but these always come from links I was already recommending and usually I share them because they benefit you too (i.e. getting you extra time on trials).
