I couldn't agree more! It will change! Also, there is a lot of space for architecture related software to become better and get more users.
(#Fedi is ephemeral, so I'm reposting it occasionally)
Ok, second part of the animating water tiles post, this time about shaders in #godotengine:
Playing around with Raph Levien's new curve type that he presented at the last LGM, converted to C++. Also comparing to his old spiro type. The blue dots are after conversion to cubic beziers. Where the old spiro is more like having to keep up with a higgs boson gone mad, the new type is much more stable. These curves potentially help a lot to cut down on bezier handle clutter when working with paths.
Have you ever clicked on an interesting account on Mastodon but it was empty, with hardly any posts or followers?
It might be that the account is very active, but your instance just hasn't updated its data about it yet because it's on another instance.
To see the latest info about an account, click on its profile picture to open its public page. This is hosted on its home instance, so it's up to date.
For example, switching.social's public page is https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial
I finally got to meet and hang out with the one and only @prokoudine while at LGM this year and it was awesome! (My biggest fanboy moment!) Here’s an interview I did with him about PIXLS.US over at http://libregraphicsworld.org/
so there is GSoC project to integrate an OpenXR driver to #blender #b3d that's well in the making. This is great news that someone work on this together with the people from Marui
After #godotengine it would be the second software to get OpenXR compatibility.
the last bit would be to have OpenHMD to get positional tracking for the Lighthouse system so we could have a full stack on libre software not depending on unstable proprietary and intrusive middleware.
Last week, Mastodon adopted a beginner-friendly default interface 👍
So, maybe this would be a good time to spread the word about Mastodon to a wider audience?
If you're on Facebook/Twitter, you could do a little post about Masto with a link to https://joinmastodon.org ? And a link to a good instance running 2.9 or above?
(Also, I think some people were doing Mastodon posters?)
If people hear about Mastodon from many different sources, they are more likely to try it.
Hey #darktable users : since september 2018, I have added 14050 lines of code in darktable's core, being the 2nd most productive dev for 2018/2019, and father of filmic, color balance v2 and the new UI design, in addition of providing doc, tutos, advice and various bugfixes. I'm working full time on more cool projects (modules and R&D), but I'm still paid way below minimal wage. If you can spare a few €, you can help me to help you long-term : https://liberapay.com/aurelienpierre/
Happy Friday my lovely •ARTists!
Our instance had recently been updated to version 2.9, which gives you the option of using a new single-column interface. This new interface will be default for new users, but you can decide which version you want to use in your settings page.
More info on the update here: https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/06/mastodon-2.9/
Keep being awesome!
Woo! As you may have seen from that previous boost, Mastodon 2.9 is now out, featuring a new single column interface:
This is, IMHO, a huge step forward for getting non-technical people onto Mastodon 👍
Instead of the Tweetdeck-style interface, there's now a default single-column timeline which is much less scary.
(The multicolumn original is still an option in Settings, and those who currently use multicolumn will continue to see it by default.)
Plasma 5.16 is out! Check out all the new features and marvel at the improvements that now make working with Plasma smoother and more fun!
