Just two neat pieces of news related to the tools we used that I
thought would be good to share:
1) Alex Larsson has made nightly development builds of Inkscape and
Gimp available using xdg-app. The instructions to install them are
here (note for F22 you'll have to rewrite the "xdg-app add-remote
--user --gpg-import=gnome-sdk.gpg gnome http://sdk.gnome.org/repo/"
line to "xdg-app add-remote --user --no-gpg-verify gnome
2) Xaviju Julián from the Inkscape users list developed an extension
for Inkscape that will insert CC0 licensed placeholder images from
unsplash and CC licensed user avatars from uifaces into Inkscape
files, see the upstream link for instructions on how to download and
design-team mailing list
Cool. I notice there
is also the GTK3 version of Gimp development to try
it out as well. Only downside is the external plugins.
