I found a way to make variable fonts with free softwares only. It requires Fontforge and two Python modules (AFDKO and fontmake). My code here: https://gitlab.com/ameliedumont/fonts/tree/master/ReHershey/Variable%20fonts/Contour%20VF

And we've got a new feature release! Krita 4.3.0 is out for Linux, Windows, MacOS and as a beta still, for Android: https://krita.org/en/item/krita-4-3-0-released/

Gotta say, it's kind of soothing to fix something that's been broken and/or missing in my Laidout software since around 2007, namely being able to fill paths with gradients comfortably. Gradients also now import well from svg.

There was a desktop open source application for making svg animations (not Synfig, Natron or Enve). Can anyone remember it?

@bastiansenst @imke FYI, the videos are being uploaded these days on our account at @lgm


I’m currently rewriting #Lufi’s frontend from scratch (using the mockup on https://framagit.org/fiat-tux/hat-softwares/lufi/issues/116), so if a designer wants to contribute to a free software which is already used (not widely, but by a good number of users) and wants to take advantage of the fact that I’m redoing all the UI from scratch, I welcome goodwill with pleasure!

NB: I'm starting to work on the mockup, but I don't mind using a different design, not at all!

@lgm so happy that the videos were posted on conf.tube so quickly, bravo!

@lgm Thanks very much for everything. The event was wonderfully organized. It was inspiring to see that this whole thing could run on free software so smoothly.
