It’s finally here. Inkscape 0.47 has been officially released. A HUGE thank-you goes out to all of the Inkscape developers. Get it while it’s hot.
We received an email this morning from jEsuSdA (Jesús David Navarro) regarding a torrent that he has made. The torrent includes episodes 001 through 100. If this interests you then you can grab the torrent here (Google translated to English). Even though the description reads 85 it’s my understanding that all 100 are there. I didn’t know about jEsuSdA’s site until now and found that there are about ten other downloads that I found interesting too. He has some good stuff there. Check it out.

It’s finally done. Episode 100 has been published. This is the longest running and our largest file size screencast to date. So grab yourself a beverage while it’s downloading and prepare to hunker down for a bit. It’s an hour long.
Episode 099 is now available. Looks like I was able to get a screencast out in October after all thanks to Ubuntu Karmic Koala.
Episode 098 is now up. This episode demonstrates a few simple text treatments that you might find valuable in your next Inkscape design project.
It seems that I have broken some packages on my Ubuntu 9.04 system. Not sure if it’s RecordMyDesktop (which I have never had problems with in the past) or a few suspicious encoders that I installed from PPA a few weeks ago. Place your bets. Unfortunately it isn’t something I’m going to tear into an try to fix this close to the release of Ubuntu 9.10. That’s just a couple of weeks around the corner. I plan to format my system for that release since I usually end up installing a bunch of experimental thingies between releases anyway. I like a clean system.
I had episode 098 lined up and screencasted but it encoded so horribly that it’s unwatchable. Syncing issues, dropped frames…nasty. Unfortunately this post serves as an announcement that I won’t have any screencasts this month, at least not by me. So hopefully everything with Ubuntu 9.10 will be alright and I’ll be back in business.
See you then.
Episode 097 is up. Go do your thing.
HURRY! You’ve got until September 25th to submit your proposal/presentation for Libre Graphics Day. They need your participation.
I came across a rather interesting extension for Inkscape this morning found on InkscapeForum.com. It’s called PixelSnap, written by Mr. Brian Hoyt. In a nutshell it aligns all objects to the nearest pixel (without using that darned grid snapping method). I tried it myself and it works as advertised. It’s rather handy for correcting small web graphics by getting them as sharp as possible after exporting them to bitmap.
