Here comes libadwaita! Read about our plans to make GNOME apps and GTK 4 even better, and about the future of libhandy: https://adrienplazas.com/blog/2021/03/31/introducing-libadwaita.html
flatpak install --user org.gimp.GIMP.Plugin.GMic//2-40
P.S.: --user is not necessarily needed. This might work fine too:
flatpak install org.gimp.GIMP.Plugin.GMic//2-40
I think there is a need for a new copyleft license (which is compatible with the GPL) that doesn't require trusting the FSF to update it in the future to address new challenges.

Today I’m exploring black and white fills/strokes at https://toolness.github.io/mystic-symbolic/?p=creature . Right now it’s an inconsistent mess because we have no code automatically inverting colors; I just exported a few inverted ones to see how they’d look. Ideally you get a nice mix of black and white, like these.
@amolith Do you plan on running mobilizon on Nixnet? I know almost nothing about it yet but somebody mentioned it to me, and I figured I'd ask.
I just got asked by my local museum, which I volunteer at, to pick a lock on an empty display case so they could start using it. I was careful to make no promises because i havent practiced in 5 years.... picked it in under a minute. Eveybody was duly impressed and I tried not to let on that I was just as suprised as everybody else was.
Thank you, hacker conferences! Turns out that hours of sitting in lockpick villages has finally paid off!
