"We will be creating something that could be - depending on your use case - a possible replacement for an Indesign server and that by only using open source software."
In the second part we will take what we have learned in part 1, but this time build a webservice around it. In essence we will be creating something that could be - depending on your use case - a possible replacement for an ...

The program for Libre Graphics Meeting 2016 has been up for a few days. If you are around London at the end of next week, do drop by to meet developers of free graphics software :)
First there was Flippaper, a project between a drafting table and a pinball. Take a few felt pens, draw a few shapes, press SCAN and ta-dah!, your drawing lights up. And it doesn't stop there: with the help of smoke, mirrors and a bit of tech, a ball appears on your drawing and reacts to it.

@tonroosendaal That's really cool. I personally don't use freestyle very often, but this looks very impressive. Will give it another whirl. Phil Nolan フィル · Jan 6. Phil Nolan フィル @PhilNolan3D. @tonroosendaal @clipstudiopaint What he really needs is LightWave.

If you own a K-Board from KMI (https://www.keithmcmillen.com/products/k-board/) and use Linux, you might find this editor useful. Spencer Jackson writes: 

"This is a simple editor for the kboard, primarily intended for linux users. Well, really it's intended for myself, but anyone is welcome to use it. The only functionality this offers over the official editor from KMI is opportunity to set bend to separate ranges for up and down, and some sensitivities can be set to a larger range. That and linux compatibility."

A fantastic feature in FreeCAD: calculated fields f(x)
You can define global features in you document and use this features to make your geometries parametric.
For example you want to build a box and you don't know the thickness of your material or you want to change the thickness later.
Or you want to change the outer size of you box... and so on.
The main thing: think about your model first: which parameter is fix and which parameter may change later.

Define your model features:
1) create a python object 
>>> a=FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.addObject("App::FeaturePython","DF")

2) add all of your model properties to that object (in my case all length properties)
like
object.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","property name","group name","help string")
e.g.:
>>> a.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","thickness","Box","thickness of wooden board")
>>> a.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","box hight","Box","Box hight")
>>> a.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","box width","Box","Box width")
>>> a.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","side hight","Box","side hight")
>>> a.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","side length","Box","side length")
>>> a.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","box length","Box","Box length")
>>> a.addProperty("App::PropertyLength","short side length","Box","short side length")

3) Make your model with calculated positions and dimensions.
You can also use the properties in sketcher.
If you calculate, only the first time auto completion works well. You have to remember your property names.
Keep on mind for upper case and lower case characters. White spaces are converted to underline:
"box hight" is the property "box_hight"

PS: of course you can use the document features  or object parameter directly. It's not necessary to use the calculated fields.

After much pain, suffering, and plugin code rewrites, darktable gets a liquify tool.
Most modules in darktable are working on changing pixels color, lightness, etc. Few modules are moving pixels and when they do they are doing it in a very constraint way like to rotate, fix the lens' distortions or remove spots. The liquify module offer more ways to move pixels around by ...

What's new in the world of free design and photography applications
Introduction
Libre Graphics World is a kind of an online magazine. No, really.

We write about all things related to free/libre software for design, photography, 3D modeling, and rendering. We also favor personal fabrication and open hardware.

As if it wasn't quite enough, we also cover free apps for video and music production.
