Good morning desktoppers! 📢 We've released the Conveyor updates for May. Conveyor makes it easy to distribute Kotlin apps to the desktop. It handles packaging, code signing, creating self-updating packages including on Windows, uploading to servers or GitHub Releases, and can do that from your laptop or CI machine of choice. It has built-in integration for Compose and JavaFX apps, and can even be used to distribute servers (with systemd integration, debian packaging and apt repositories), and CLI tools (but ask us about that first if you want to do it, as that feature is in beta). In this release we've added support for uploading to the Microsoft Store. The MS Store is useful because it lets you be treated as a trusted/signed app but without code signing certificates. It costs only $19 for an individual (one payment lasts forever), or $99 for a company, which is much cheaper than buying from a CA. This brings distribution of open source apps well within reach of even modest budgets, and Conveyor is free for open source.

Congratulations! I think you can highlight the phrase "*Conveyor is free for open source*" in bold style.
