"freieFarbe/freeColour is proud to have achieved a major milestone in its attempts to liberate #colour. Its CIE-based approach to #color #standardisation has been approved by by the German #DIN as DIN SPEC 16699 (freely available for download after registration under: https://www.beuth.de/de/technische-regel/din-spec-16699/295721446).
This means that, at least in countries that take DIN #standards seriously, there's now a truly open alternative to #Pantone et al. available.
Moreover, fF has created a new Colour Atlas with the addition "XL". It comprises 13283 FOGRA-certified colours. Most importantly, the Colour Atlas is being printed with inks and on materiel that are supposed to last as long as possible and to retain its reliability as long as currently technically possible. (The Swiss and German approach to products)
Each copy of the atlas includes a certification regarding its accuracy, which is very different from colour references produced by commercial colour vendors.
Digital versions of the Colour Atlas and the underlying data can be freely downloaded here: http://www.freiefarbe.de/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/HLC-Colour-Atlas-XL_Set_DE_v1.zip
Enjoy the #freecolour standard!"
Currently all male panel it seems but interesting to see how it #CIE unfold?
It features their official app and is a great move towards user rights and freedom. Sadly the app isn't free and open source software, although it's financed by taxpayers’ money.
If it is public money, it should be public code as well. #PublicCode

A report by Chris Rogers about the Inkscape Hackfest in Kiel is now online (with pictures!):
I just did the evaluation of our Kielux visitor survey sheets - an overwhelming 96% of submissions rated Kieler Open Source und Linux Tage with 'good' or 'very good' - and there were 9 new persons who said they would be interested in helping with organization.
We'll take that as encouragement to continue working for Kielux and with the additional help, we can hopefully make it even better for you :)
I've tried to sum up what happened at the Inkscape hackfest in Kiel every evening of the last couple of days on the Inkscape forum:
It's not very lyrical, and only contains a small excerpt of all that has happened - there was so much going on! And then I had not only Inkscape, but also Kielux on my mind...
