Hey open source typography nerds! In the process of revamping our netlabel design template into fully -licenced open and libre material I'm looking for quality libre font foundries or collections. Any pointers greatly appreciated!
If you want to see some nice "release notes"* check out the wiki pages @darius put together for each of the new features in Hometown 1.0
I wish "release notes", as a category, deserved the content being linked. Maybe someday it will (again)!
I still find it faintly incredible that no group of scientists has gotten together and just made a damn set of free textbooks to cover the whole standard curriculum of their field. For uni physics, you'd need, roughly speaking and allowing for bits of overlap:
1. Classical mechanics
2. Single-variable calculus
4. Multivariable and vector calculus
5. Statistical physics
6. Quantum physics
7. Special relativity
8. Data analysis (a text most likely used as reference in a lab course)
9. Differential equations
10. Linear algebra
Education reform went haring off into MOOCs without really contemplating the possibility of making better resources for more traditional in-person teaching.

Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob

The #darktable UI rework is now merged in darktable 2.7 (dev version) and therefore planned for darktable 2.8 (released next Christmas)
"The speed with which technology develops often isn’t tempered by enough meaningful mindful reflection over what the consequences of the use of the technology will be for the communities.” says EFF's Stephanie Lacambra in @theappeal https://theappeal.org/chicago-electronic-monitoring-wiretapping-juveniles/
I've just released Converse.js 4.2.0.
Lots of bugfixes included, including a few OMEMO ones from the Berlin sprint.
This is a preview of my refactoring of #darktable UI after 2 weeks of half-time work (half-time = 12 hours/day).
GTK is making me crazy, but I think it looks better and, foremost, more consistent.
Also, I have removed some UI events that created lags.
Also, Pascal has introduced support for themes, and I'm almost done wiring widget to CSS nodes, so most of the UI will be theme-able very soon (colors and sizes). Hello grey theme !
Still work to do though…
Monal (iOS) hat nun OMEMO-Support. Langfristig wird dieser Client wohl ChatSecure auf iOS ablösen.
