The KDE community is adding Matrix to its instant messaging communication infrastructure. Join our server, get a cool KDE handle and become part of the KDE conversation.
Matrix provides graphical instant messaging for desktop and mobile (with all its goodies: gifs, emojis, etc.), bridging for IRC channels, point to point encryption, file sharing, and more stuff that will help improve KDE's communications.
Why is this a thing? Like, I sort of get why this is a thing, but, like, why can't we just have compression on anything above a certain file limit and leave files underneath that alone?
Any painters/artists about? I'm looking to commission artwork to promote my new app. Find details at https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=308&t=157084! #krita #artwork #drawing #artists
Okay, so we have animation functionality that seems to be so intuitive that people keep getting stuck on the same three things: Onion skins, ram usage and animation export.
All of them would be solved if they looked up documentation / tutorials, but they do not because animation is fully intuitive until they hit those things.
Okay, I've put her some clothes on during #fosdem, but I think I'll quite working on her for now.
For now, this is a pretty decent turntable of Kiki, I attached 3/4th(because masto doesn't allow more than 4 images) of her turntable as sheet so others have a good Kiki reference if they ever wanted to draw her.
Over the last weekend, quite a few people pinged me about Akira, the upcoming free/libre interface design tool for Linux, and wanted it featured at LGW :) Well, here is the interview with the project's lead developer Alessandro Castellani:
Also the ora now contains a JSON file with 'mypaint-settings' for compositions. And probably what else.
Other than that: the convenience features are nice, brush engine seems it got extended, gotta play with that. It's got color blindness modes in. Would need to remember what was in the previous mypaint to begin with, I guess :p
Mypaint 2.0 observations:
1. Oof, linear compositing is made the default for mypaint, thankfully it is seperately noted in ORA, but very weirdly. (composite-op="svg:spectral-wgm")
2. The spectral color mixing stuff is really impressive that it is this performant(older versions required a 10gb look up table to be included, doesn't seem to be necessary anymore)
3. ... but it is waaaay less performant than mypaint 1.2 was.
#Mypaint v2.0.0-alpha released ^^
Please test our new test builds! https://krita.org/en/item/new-test-builds-changes-to-flow-and-saving-loading/ (note: it's still unstable, don't use it for any real work!)
