TeXstudio: Open-source LaTeX text editor for Linux

Filed under
Software

LaTeX is a handy document preparation system. For those of you who don’t know, it is a system in which you can specify the components of a document, without having to format it yourself.

You can take the analogy of an HTML document, where you specify the headings and paragraphs with tags instead of having to modify the page or text.

LaTeX is widely used to display text with mathematical notations. Since it is so important, there have to be programs dedicated to editing text files with LaTeX. We’re going to talk about one such program today, TeXstudio, which can be perceived as an IDE of sorts for LaTeX.

OpenShot 2.5.1 Released | Optimized Effects & Improved Performance!

Filed under
Software

With faster performance, huge optimizations with effects, and improved UTF-8 character support, OpenShot 2.5.1 is the best version yet, bringing powerful and simple video editing to the open-source world!

The OpenShot team has been very busy over the past few weeks, and we are proud to release OpenShot 2.5.1! While we don't normally release so quickly, we had a show-stopping bug with version 2.5.0 (mostly related to UTF-8 support of non-ASCII characters), and decided to put out a fix as quickly as possible. However, we were also able to "sneak in" some really awesome improvements at the same time!

GImageReader: An open-source PDF app with OCR capability

Filed under
Software

GImagereader is a front-end application for the Tesseract OCR engine. For those new to Tesseract, it is an Optical Character Recognition Engine (OCR) that makes use of artificial intelligence to search and recognize printed text on images. It’s an opensource library and one of the most popular OCR engines in the market.

Every day, be it in offices, home, etc., we find ourselves in situations where we need to extract text from an image. It could be a scanned document in image format, a piece of paper, or old research work. The outright option is to type the whole text with a text editor. But this process is time-consuming. Why not use an OCR to extract the text automatically?

Glimpse 0.1.2 Release Notes

Filed under
Software

This release iterates on our very first “minimal viable product” release. The primary objective was to improve the experience for Windows users and fix non-English translation files.

This is also the first release where we have provided a source tarball for Linux distribution packagers. Please note that you will need to mark libgimp as a conflicting package as there is a lot of code and file name refactoring we still need to do.

Blender LTS and 3.0

Filed under
Software

The first proposal is to do one Long Term Support (LTS) release every year. This release would be supported for two years with important bug fixes and updates for new hardware, while strictly maintaining compatibility.

A good reason to do an LTS now is the focus on fixes and patches of the past months. The next release (2.83) although big, will be relatively less experimental, thus a good candidate to keep supporting for a while.

LTS versions also will help to ensure that a project that started with an LTS version can be completed with the same version in a reasonable amount of time. Nice for studios with large projects, but also for add-on maintenance.

Shotcut Video Editor Adds More Export Options, New Audio Pitch Filter

Filed under
Software

A new version of the open source video editor Shotcut is available to download, and in this post I share some of the changes it includes.

For those unaware Shotcut is a free, cross-platform non-linear video editor built using the MLT framework and leveraging the power of FFMepg.

The latest stable release is Shotcut 20.02.17 (yes, the version number is a date) which adds a notable new feature: low resolution preview scaling.

Although rather grand-sounding, this change allows editors to preview video in the on-screen display in a resolution that’s lower than the one they plan to export in.

Previewing video in a lower resolution offers a number of performance enhancements as the computer isn’t having to work quite as hard.
