KDE and GNOME: ikona 1.0, KF5, Shortwave Goes Stable and How to Use Sysprof

KDE
GNOME
  • ikona 1.0

    this is where Ikona's meat lies—the application icon view. it displays application icons at a pixel-perfect size in an environment similar to a Plasma desktop.

    by default, it just shows Ikona's icon. the real meat is when you press “Create Icon.” this exports a special type of SVG with the suffix .ikona.app.svg. Ikona can process these SVGs to produce multiple sizes of the same icon from one SVG file, making wrangling with multiple sizes of icon simple.

    saving the icon will cause Ikona to instantly update its preview of the icon.

    once you're done designing your icon, you use the export screen to export your icon.

  • Scaling Barcodes in KF5::Prison

    In the past couple of days I tried to finally address an issue in KDE Itinerary where UIC 918.3 train tickets could be rendered in a way that they weren’t accepted by the scanner. That turned into a journey into the depths of high DPI rendering inside KDE Frameworks’ barcode rendering library Prison.

  • Shortwave – First stable release

  • Christian Hergert: How to use Sysprof to…

    First off, before using Sysprof to improve the performance of a particular piece of software, make sure you’re compiling with flags that allow us to have enough information to unwind stack frames. Sysprof will use libunwind in some cases, but a majority of our stack unwinding is done by the Linux kernel which can currently only follow eh_frame (exception handling) information.

    After being in development for two years, GNOME Shortwave has seen its first stable release shortly after this week's GNOME 3.36 desktop debut.

    Shortwave is a GTK-based Internet radio player that supports tuning into more than twenty-five thousand stations.

    Shortwave, the Gradio successor, had its first stable (1.0) release over the weekend after almost two years of development.

    Shortwave is a GTK Internet radio player written in Rust, created to replace Gradio (which is dead now). Being a GNOME-based application, it uses header bars, as well as libhandy to have its interface adapt to all screen sizes (it's compatible with Librem 5 by the way). Dark mode is also available.

How to write about open source software

But getting started writing is easier said than done. The two most common excuses I hear for not writing are: "I have nothing new to say" and "I'm not a good writer." I'm here to dispel both of those myths. Read more
