Lexi dix disques, Congrès, tonite
Last week, the Inkscape team had a hackfest in Kiel and returned with a bunch of interesting improvements, some of them so very long overdue :)
Not very excited by the #Sketch killer approach of #Sigma, but the "Creating the first collaborative interface design tool" is more intriguing. More than 10 years after experiments of that kind by #inkscape.

The hardest problem in computer science is people actively believing there is no ideology or politics in computer science.
@rick_777 @frankiesaxx @crickxson some of the apps haven't finished their implementations of #ActivityPub yet, and are still federating with Mastodon via #OStatus. I'm hopeful most of them will roll it out by the end of the year (or at the lastest mid-2019).
