GIMP has quite a few features that are not very much visible to end-users and sometimes downright difficult to make obvious. Doing basic math calculations in the input fields is one of them. Basically, you can write '2467+7893', press TAB, and GIMP will compute the sum for you. So I did a video about this feature with slightly more details than that :)
We've been asked if we could quickly implement new features in #Liberapay so that it could replace #Bountysource, which has been doing shady things. We can't and we don't want to. Encouraging people to pay for a specific issue to be solved is problematic, it creates bad incentives instead of providing stable funding for the proper maintenance and development of a project. If you still think bounties are a good idea, then you can try to revive https://freedomsponsors.org/
Just have published a quick video about the Vignette filter update and the new Focus Blur / Variable Blur filters in upcoming GIMP v2.10.20 (to be out really soon now). This is a very basic intro for now, all this new stuff clearly deserves a more in-depth coverage!
By the way, I hope the tilt-shift part wasn't too distracting. I think I really had to point out we are talking only about a subset of what the real gear can do :)

A terminal color scheme constrained to be near de-facto standards while providing internal contrast for for dichromats and contrasting text for all colors on both black and white background.
If this works well it can be used as a decent default palette; allowing color vision deficient operators to see contrast in TUIs and syntax highlighting using default colors.

Well, if you have classes that include quizzes on button positions, you have bigger problems than program names. 😿
I am all for forking, just won't recommend this fork for a few years. If it will be still around in a year or two, good.
Also please stop being this antagonistic I am not even against glimpse and you. 😅
I want a bot that crawls reddit and locks issues temporarly whenever somebody posts them in order to mob and harass the developers.
Let's be fair to #theyoungpeople who think that a floppy disk is a weird symbol for a "save" icon: lots of us have known/said that that was a terrible metaphor choice for decades; the UI-design committees stuck with it anyway. Because they don't like rockin' the boat.
A write up about and small gallery of results for the now titles "Color Assimilation Grid Illusion" I discovered last week that vent viral:
Playing around with Raph Levien's new curve type that he presented at the last LGM, converted to C++. Also comparing to his old spiro type. The blue dots are after conversion to cubic beziers. Where the old spiro is more like having to keep up with a higgs boson gone mad, the new type is much more stable. These curves potentially help a lot to cut down on bezier handle clutter when working with paths.
The GEGL image viewer, browser has gained a basic graph/property editor and a piecemeal migration of UI code to lua has begun for more see this post with screenshots of some of the UI pieces evolving: https://www.patreon.com/posts/non-destructive-24123574
There goes 2018, what a year right?
With this wonderful people we'll reap joy, love and prosperity in 2019. Wish you all the same. ❤️
