A whole new round of releases on all platforms started rolling last week: apart from many little fixes and improvements we introduce two major things: *Disappearing messages* and *video chats* (via Webrtc). https://delta.chat/en/2020-07-30-summer-update

If you haven't joined the conversation, it's not too late. Come talk interface, features, and more NOW with the Inkscape UX team at: https://digimedia1.r2.enst.fr/b/vec-tz3-fi9
Well, guess what. Weekly recaps are back, at least for now :)
Some of the usual sections like 3D, CAD, VFX have been omitted this time, and some of the topics like releases of Inkscape, GIMP, and Krita are old news. But there's more :)

#EdwardSnowden rocks. 👍 Nothing special happened. Just occurred to me. Just now. Again.
@mray ...Then again, there are a lot of bottlenecks and over-centralizations in free software that I wish more orgs would step up to participate in. I wish community distros would offer Mastodon instances; I wish Mozilla would offer an email service; I wish EFF, OSI, FSF, SPI, and SFC would offer lots of communication services to the community. They don't, which is what lets GMail and Apple Mail and Office365 dominate....
I often forget how much cool public domain stuff out there on the internet, last weekend I spent multiple hours just browsing art on artvee.com, it's like you get to experience being a millionaire art collector but instead of money you just need time and free disc-space.
It's about time we stopped buying into the propaganda phrase "ad blockers", and started calling user-protection tools like #uBlockOrigin and #NoScript what they are; spy blockers. If I display ads on my website using HTML and CSS, spy blockers won't block those. As far as they know, the text, images, audio, or video that make up the ads could be anything. So what's really being blocked is not ads, but tracking. Thanks to the authors of this site, for pointing this out:
