Behind the @gnome 3.30 Release Video
The release video is out! Check out the new features in GNOME 3.30.
Need a UX designer with roots in open source? I am looking for full-time opportunities in 2019. 🔥
Finally, the official 1.0 of #Flatpak is out!
With Flatpak you get desktop apps using a layered filesystem with OStree and this way provide applications in a stable way on almost every distro.
There is already a big number of applications available as flatpak. See https://flathub.org for that.
One of the most powerful features is its GTK integration which makes sure your flatpaks use your system's GTK themes :)
Have a lot of fun!
We have just done source code release of @GIMP 2.10.6 with vertical text, async layer preview rendering, new filters, usability improvements, bugfixes, and more changes. Builds for Windows and macOS are a work in progress, will be announced separately soon!
After sleeping on it, I think #Mastodon should rename ‘instances’ to ‘Communities.’
Instances feels too technical and I see even savvy people struggling to understand it.
I argue communities would make much more sense. It denotes much of the purpose behind _why_ this service has different instances, and many people will already be familiar with the concept from Reddit (the, what, sixth most popular site on the net?).
New @gnome Developer initiative update!
Had another Developer Center call today where we presentations of 4 different website prototypes. It was great! Blog post coming soon. :)

Fifth postcard of the series ^}^
As you can see I continue working with watercolour and ink. The lightness of the media made me want to do a bird. It looks like I am going more and more the figurative way, but that might change, or not?
I recently have been watching Jeff Watts drawing videos. It's great background stuff while drawing yourself (apart from his occassional ads).

Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.
#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.
#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄
(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)
I love Gitlab's emoji reactions to comments regardless of how "useless" it might feel in practice. Stuff like that brings a lot of social value.. we definitely need more of that in technology.
right... it is friday, I haven't done one of these in a long... long time.

Postcard 2 of 20
In my second postcard I tried to get to that style I was using for the illustration anthology I posted recently. As you can see in the process video, it didn't worked out. On top of that, when I tried to flatten the card it got heavily stained, so at the end I gave it a more 1980's indy comic style.

Working on release videos means that i need to occasionally remind myself to restart Blender every 40 minutes to free up 2900MB of memory and avoid system freeze. I'm happy there is a dedicated label to it in the UI so I can monitor it continuously.
