SVG-edit, a web based SVG editor

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.

Pencil project - Sketching and Prototyping with Firefox

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).

Image with rounded corners (using CSS3)

W3C added nice new options for creating rounded corners of elements to their CSS3 working draft. Engines like Gecko, KHTML and WebKit already implemented these functions, but they use vendor prefixes in the keywords (-moz-border-radius, -khtml-border-radius and -webkit-border-radius respectively), because the feature is not yet fully standardized. That’s also the reason why Opera and Internet Explorer decided not to implement this extension for now.

Popcorn - Popularity Contest (for RPM)

A few days ago I came across Feature #305877. What is it about? Well, Debian has the Popularity Contest, which tracks installed packages, how often they are used and sends an anonymized report once a week to their server. This maps the usage of Debian packages and as a nice side effect Debian guys can estimate the size of their user base on various platforms and releases. This also gives information about the community structure (e.g. how many users use development tools or graphic applications). This would be a very neat thing to have in openSUSE too!
