It appears that +SourceForge took over the control of the 'GIMP for Windows' account and is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP. They also locked out original owner of the account, Jernej Simončič, who has been building the Windows versions of GIMP for our project for years.

So far they haven't replied to provide explanations. Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for WIndows via its official Downloads page.
Source for version 2.8 (Stable). GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system. For instructions, how to build GIMP from source code, please see this page.

Sourceforge.net attitude is despisable. Shame on them, tell your friends to not entrust them with your code!

Today, we launched PathPicker that lets you easily pick files from a command-line output. You can then open these files in your favorite editor or run any arbitrary command. http://facebook.github.io/PathPicker/

Check out the project: https://github.com/facebook/pathpicker/
PathPicker is a command line tool to easily select files from piped input.

Oh but maybe it doesn't provide that. I don't see any mention of Sublime Text-like filename search in the website, so never mind.

Some great tips on what a good dev/build/deploy environment can look like, by +James Ward​. Targets Java, but much of it is language-agnostic, IMO.
I've been building enterprise Java web apps since servlets were created. In that time the Java ecosystem has changed a lot but sadly many enterprise Java developers are stuck in some very painful and inefficient ways of doing things. In my travels I continue to see Java The Sucky Parts – but it ...

Ten years ago this week Linus Torvalds emerged from his basement office with Git, another hole in one. Read this exclusive QA with him that reveals the behind the scenes story on the development of Git, as well as his perspective on its impact on software development: http://www.linux.com/news/featured-blogs/185-jennifer-cloer/821541-10-years-of-git-an-interview-with-git-creator-linus-torvalds

"Now, it was time for proof.  I was initially unsure whether I should actually give a proof, since these were just third-graders, after all..."

pgcli - A postgres client with auto-completion and syntax highlighting written in Python. http://pgcli.com/

Looks nice, but I get "pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: Pygments>=2.0" when I try to use it (and I have pygments 2.0.1 installed)

Why does he bother tagging all his posts with #gif and #processing if they all have it?

I was trying to explain to someone the difference between Java and JavaScript. "It is like the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars."

Java is Star Trek. It was first, and it is all uniforms, regulations, and red alerts. JavaScript is Star Wars. Grit, chaos, and mysticism.

Also, Java is based on a vision for a greater future, whereas JavaScript is an amalgam of ideas presented with an appealing finish.
