OpenInsulin is creating an open-source (freely available) model for insulin production that centers on sustainable, small-scale manufacturing and open-source alternatives to production.

In the US, insulin costs $300 per vial, while it's a fraction of that in other countries.

It was super nice to be part of this project, working with @Severin_b3d on Blender's new Asset Browser. Check the blog post below for MUCH more info!

RT @Blender
The Asset Browser will finally debut in Blender 3.0 🚀

Check out the current state of this major milestone and what is coming up next.

Weekly-ish recap is out: new @inkscape, @penpot, BlenderBIM and Ardour releases, development fund for @krita, Audacity shenanigans

On-canvas alignment guides aka "smart guides" are more or less functional in one of Inkscape's GSoC git repos.

I did not expect something so usable to be available in this year's GSoC projects this early. But hey, you live and learn! :) Parth Pant who made this possible is a real hero.

Not that I loved Glimpse at any rate, but the growing amount of Schadenfreude over its demise suggests that the FOSS community has a lot to learn.

#BlenderBIM has won an Epic MegaGrant funding increased development on fundamental aspects that will change the industry and offer new options for architects, engineers, cost planners, programme schedulers, sustainability analysts, and more...

Originally I was gonna write a post about how messed up it is that you can essentially go to the web site of any news organization and buy a logo-branded jacket & baseball cap that you could subsequently wear to pretend you work for them at a breaking-news disaster.

But then I was searching for old tourist belt buckles & realized you can buy 100% authentic used police-uniform stuff on eBay for anywhere in the world, so nevermind.

Gosh, this is so exciting. There hasn't been an Audacity shitshow for years, probably ever. Now it's dominating the news

Twitter peeps: Ardour ('has FreeSound integration') is more complex than Audacity and MuseScore and does not need corporate bullshit and CLAs

Also Twitter peeps: who the hell needs cloud services in a multitrack audio editor anyway?

So I keep hearing how CLA in a free/libre project is unheard of, a team of 30 people working on desktop app, mobile app, online service and edu is corporate overhead, and upgrading license from GPLv2 to GPLv3 is stealing from community. Just another day in the brand new Audacity world

Ardour 6.7 released:

- New “Recorder” tab/window
- New streaming presets for exporting (YouTube, Apple Music etc.)
- MIDI cue markers can now be imported as global markers
- Reorganized Preferences window

A new version of the LV2 glitch effect sequencer plugin B.Oops is just released.

What's new:
* Up to 16 MIDI-controlled patterns
* Import / export patterns
* Build B.Oops in your native language
* Add language packs: EN, DE
* Store GUI state

#GIMP 2.99.6 is out ! And a cool Wilber & co. comics strip by Aryeom under CC by-sa license, as usual ! 🙂

« GIMP 2.99.6 is out with new/experimental features. Highlights: off-canvas guides, pinch zoom on touchpads, improved Paint Select tool (unstable), and more. Flatpak and Win installer available, no news on macOS builds yet (we encourage contributions!) »


Ultimate Guitar launches Muse Group, transfers MuseScore and other assets there and then announces Audacity acquisition in the most unusual way — in another fun and to-the-point video by our lord and savior Tantacrul :)

With people at OSP we met #IgorNovikov at multiple @lgm conferences and he always amazed us with his dual activities, psychologist and passionnated developer of vector editing #sk1. We found other ways to process #cmyk #vector files, but his software was always a helpfull alternative. And we've liked a lot his strong eastern presence as an alternative posture amongst standard chilling western developers! Too young to die. Regrets!
