- Intro to Krita 2.4
- Using a high resolution input device with pressure sensitivity
GIMP 2.8 is just around the corner. We'll have a look at several of the new features in GIMP 2.8 including the "Single Window" mode it offers.
Calligra (a fork of Koffice like LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice.org) recently released version 2.4 of all of their applications including Krita. Krita is an often overlooked bitmap image editing program especially well suited to original art composition. We'll take a look at Krita 2.4 using a VisTablet for input.

Jordan Schatz has volunteered to give a presentation on why he uses Linux... what software he uses and why. He has a long list of software he is going to talk about and it runs the range from desktop applications, to development tools, to server applications. Here's the list he gave me:
using curl to see headers and why you would want to,
firebug + developer tools,
ACE online code editor,
Gimp & Inkscape,
a cool memory usage measuring script I have,
maybe AB (apache benchmark).
Given Jordan's previous talks, this should be very interesting so hope to see everyone who can make it at the meeting.
David Boreham from NuevaSync will talk about the design, specification and features of the new servers they're deploying next month as part of a major service capacity upgrade project. The servers run Linux, have no hard drives, use less than 150 watts, cost less than $2500 and up to 80 will fit in a standard rack. David's planning to bring at least one server to the meeting and will demonstrate the machines' performance and remote management capabilities live.
Venue change: We will be meeting at Cosmic Pizza a the corner of 19th and Main (in the gas station next to Burger King) for this meeting only. No topic, just pizza, soft drinks and conversation.
