To hell with 2020! Here is what you should be expecting to happen _this_ year in free/libre software for creative professionals:
I'm sunsetting Libre Graphics World to replace it with Libre Arts. Here is the why and how:
This is a shorter-than-usual week recap: new releases of Krita and Shotcut, new features in Siril, Blender, Olive, some interesting ongoing development in darktable (will land to dev branch after v3.4 release and after some heavy modification, apparently).

Font Manager 0.8.0 is out with Google Fonts integration, saved font comparison sets, Unicode 13 support etc. Linux-only so far :)
Subtitles available for the video. Might make a post though
Oh and another multi-week recap is out too:
New charcoals in Krita and more! Paper is also included ;) https://share.tube/videos/watch/ab7a3013-d0f4-41fd-a710-ba30e21a00c8
New video is out: a quick look at Scribus 1.5.6 and beyond.

If you are, like, puzzled whether you should switch to unstable v2.99 series, have a go at it.
