I was adding some new packages to our games repository in openSUSE Build Service, when I realized that we have over 150 games at this one centralized place! Wouldn’t it be great if there was an application which would allow users to browse through games, filter them by genres or names, view the screenshots and read the information about the games?
Opera Software unveiled today the new Opera build with a technology called Opera Unite. I updated the package in openSUSE Factory Non-OSS repository, so you can try it out. Factory package can be installed on older openSUSE releases too, because they are not built against particular libraries.
Last week I announced cooperation with Narendra Sisodiya on a SVG-edit project. The inscrutable ways of twitter allowed Jeff Schiller, a co-chair of the W3C SVG Interest Group, to spot our efforts and later he contributed with various patches and implemented some new features like selecting and moving objects.
Last weekend I was looking for a nice in-browser SVG editor. I found some alternatives, but no one was close to my ideals. :-) Most feature complete was SVG editor by Chris Peto, but it has complicated interface based on CGUI and is also pretty heavy. Then I stumbled upon svg-edit by Narendra Sisodiya.
Few months ago I tried to use OSC - our command-line client to BuildService under Windows. I failed because of the hard-coded dependency on python-rpm module, which is (of course) not present in Python package for Windows.
A few years ago, me and four of my friends were doing an university project, which was basically a web portal. While designing our application we needed a tool for creating mock-ups and screen prototypes. There are a lot of options like Wireframe Sketcher, Cleverlance Petra, but finally we ended up with Axure RP. Now I’m not sure why, but at least we had the motivation to finish the prototype early (trial period was only 30 days :D).
On Wednesday I attended the biggest Linux event in the Czech Republic called LinuxExpo (more particularly its first day). I also took some photos for your viewing pleasure :) Comments for each photo are under the enlarged versions shown after clicking on the thumbnails.
