Pushed a new week recap last night, and it covers new releases of @Blender, MusE, Zrythm, MuseScore, new release of darktable shaping up, as well as improvements across multiple major projects like FreeCAD, LibreCAD, BlenderBIM, Siril, @krita

The messy part is that a few hours after posting, a new release of BlenderBIM was announced :D

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 :)

GIMP has quite a few features that are not very much visible to end-users and sometimes downright difficult to make obvious. Doing basic math calculations in the input fields is one of them. Basically, you can write '2467+7893', press TAB, and GIMP will compute the sum for you. So I did a video about this feature with slightly more details than that :)

Alright, added a gradient editor and connector lines... and merged it.

It should be in the next #krita nightly.
