Couldn't decide between Foster's Complete Guide and Tyler's Complete Companion. So I just bought both!

Excellent news! Inkscape is moving to Github, which will only ease the collaboration process.
 
Hackfest 2016 Day 3

More hacking! About 70 commits were made to the Inkscape code tree during the hackfest, some just a line or two but others quite large. The main success was fixing the GTK3 flickering bug which took quite a few iterations. It was good to have so many testers in the room for instant feedback while Krzysztof was working on the fix. After the 0.92 release we'll make GTK3 the default build in trunk to get more developers working on the many additional fixes that will be needed. Alex and Martin already got a good start on reducing the literally thousands of lines of deprecation warnings when compiling the GTK3 build.

The other major effort, fixing the GMake build is almost there. GMake works fine on Linux but on Windows, there remains a linking problem. The folks from Semiodesk are eager to get this done as it is necessary in order that they can use the C++ extension system on Windows.

We also spend some time discussing infrastructure issues. The consensus is to move our code to Git. This will have some real benefits. Git is more familiar among the developers so it will be easier for new developers to start contributing. Git also allows "submodules" which means that Inkscape  can move code into separate libraries. We won't need to keep a duplicate copy of lib2geom in our tree anymore.

We have decided on GitHub as our host. There is a bit or reluctance to use a closed source host but they offer the best CI (continuous integration) for testing. We don't have a lot of developer time to manage a more complex solution.

We want to move our mailing lists to our own servers and to upgrade from Mailman 2 to Mailman 3. This is a low priority for our host OSUOL but Martin has offered our services in doing the work to install Mailman 3.

We had a consensus for moving to C++11 after the 0.92 release. Some of the libraries we depend on have already made the move. There are real benefits to C++11, especially in code simplification and code readability.

Overall it was a very successful hackfest. We would like to thank our contributors who made the hackfest possible!

Canonical being Canonical.
 
»Flatpak is the new name for GNOME’s XDG-App initiative, though ‘…95% of the commits come from one Red Hat employee,’ Shuttleworth cheekily noted. ‘We would be delighted if they’d work with us.'« – Sorry +Mark Shuttleworth, but this is FUD.
1. flatpack currently has 29 different committers, most of them not Red Hat employees; one is even a Debian developer.
2. +Alexander Larsson has 78% of the commits, not 95%.
3. snappy has 5 only committers, all of them Canonical employees.
4. If you want people to help you with your snaps, don't require them to sign Canonical's CLA, open all snap components (including the server side) and stop spreading FUD in first place.

Kthybye.
Ubuntu’s Snap packages will now work on other Linux distros. Snapd, the tool powering them, has been ported to Arch, Gentoo and Fedora among others.

Incredibly awesome! Went with some friends who knew nothing about the Warcraft universe and they love it (as did I, of course)!

I've noticed that in GNOME 3.20 File Roller (using both the program itself and the Nautilus contextual menu) doesn't extract the files in a newly created folder any more (i.e., you have random_archive.zip, and file-roller would extract the contained files in a folder names random_archive).

Is there any way to restore the previous behaviour? Otherwise it's just useless to me.

This mock-up shows how ImageJ (an open source image processing program designed for scientific multidimensional images.) could look if it used GTK+3 whilst vaguely following the GNOME HIG.

The main changes with the actual program is that the "File" menu has been reintegrated in CSD buttons (except for the printing options, but those could easily be put somewhere else), and a View Switcher has been added (sometimes working in a windowed mode is plain hell). My idea never was to go full CSD, as it is virtually impossible: ImageJ is a very specialised program that can't be really simplified.
