The comments section to this PR to Audacity is unusually quiet :)
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.

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.

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! https://github.com/sk1project/sk1-wx/issues/282
