Props to the kdenlive team, it's come a long ways. Spent several hours with it this weekend and it didn't crash even once. Used to crash every 10 minutes. Nice work!

Interested in trying out , but have a distro distributing outdated releases? Here's a small script to download and build the latest version (or supply a release number as argument to get a specific one): tyil.nl/scripts/install-perl6.

This week's hits earlier than expected. Thanks Zoffix for writing it this time around! p6weekly.wordpress.com/2018/02

was awesome, the and talks were interesting and the booth got quite some interest as well.

The interest in Perl 6 was higher than I anticipated. Once people hear about the cool features available, they seem genuinely interested. It was nice to see the public show some general interest, as Perl 6 deserves much more love.

Don't forget to check in on the latest ! p6weekly.wordpress.com/2018/01

Additionally, there's also a new star build available at rakudo.org/, if you want to get started quickly. This is the first release with OpenSUSE packages being made available for it.

Everything is fucked.

Firefox doesn't even run natively on Wayland. If it did I might be fucked to migrate to sway.

But it doesn't. And everything is broken on X11. And systemd is fucked. And everything is fucked. At least its not windows

Please rmemeber that Microsoft is sharing tons of patents with trolls who casually sue GNU/Linux when they will write another "we :heart: Linux" tweet.

If it is public money, it should be public code as well! I support @fsfe call for more : publiccode.eu/

@nause_marc & @TardisX I replied to you with a link to check the tutorial out.

"so Heracles when off to fight the 4-headed Hydra; he chopped off its heads, but two more grew out for each one; he chopped those 8 off and 16 grew out, then 32, then 64, then 128, and then the Hydra died because it was using a uchar"

@tardisx @nause_marc If either of you want to test out the tutorial I've been working, please send me a message at p.spek@tyil.work, I want one (or two) people to run through the tutorial so I can be sure it works for other people (with differing setups) as well, and is understandable for people with no prior GTK in perl6 knowledge.

Happy new year everyone!
