Filed under
KDE

The eighth bug-fix release of Krita 2.9! We’re still fixing bugs and adding improvements, but a lot of work has gone into the kickstarter goals and the Krita 3.0 porting work, too. Ubuntu Linux users can use the ” krita-lod-unstable” packages from the Krita Lime repository to test-drive the first version of the animation support and the “LOD” performance improvements. Check the LOD option in the View menu, and many brushes and other features will be perform much better on large images!

  • KDE PIM Sprint in Toulouse

    The KDE PIM spring sprint was held in Toulouse, France in March this year in Makina Corpus offices.

    The sprint was very important, because the team needed to decide how to continue from the current situation. At the previous sprint in Munich in November when Christian and Aaron introduced their new concept for next version of Akonadi it was decided to refocus all our efforts on working on that, which meant switching to maintenance mode of KDE PIM for a very long time and then coming back with a big boom. In Toulouse we re-evaluated this plan and decided that it is not working for us and that it will be much better for the project as well as the users if we continue active development of KDE PIM instead of focusing exclusively on the “next big thing” and take the one-step-at-the-time approach.

  • Interview with Pierre Geier

    If I remember correctly I’ve known about Krita since 2005, I guess, when I used KDE and there was this office stuff and a drawing program, which I never used. Until early 2015 I used only MyPaint and GIMP. And now I’ve been using Krita since April 2015.

  • KDE on Android: Cross-Compiling Docker Image

    For people never worked with Docker, I probably have to add slightly more information: Frankly, the Dockerfile is a recipe how Docker generates a system image that can be run as a virtual machine (for details, please use your favorite search machine). The virtual machine built by our Docker script provides a pre-configured cross-building environment for Qt applications on Android. Especially, our setup is very well suited to compile CMake-based Android projects, which use the cross-building toolchain from Extra-CMake-Modules. Using only 3 commands (see documentation at community.kde.org/Android), the virtual machine gets set up and one can directly start working.

Canonical releases Snappy Ubuntu Core Linux image for x86-based Intel NUC DE3815TY

The Raspberry Pi is a game-changing computer. While it was primarily designed as a low-cost base on which students could learn to code, it has proven to be much more. Some consumers buy it for HTPC purposes, but more importantly, developers embrace the little computer for other projects, such as IoT. Unfortunately for some developers, the ARM architecture and rather anemic performance make the Raspberry Pi a poor choice. While some consider ARM to be the future, I'm not so sure -- x86 has been surprisingly adaptable. Today, Canonical releases an Ubuntu Core image for the x86-based Intel NUC DE3815TY. Priced around $150, this NUC is more expensive than the Pi, but it is much more powerful too; a better choice for developers needing an x86 platform.
