Easily customizable Linux clock

Mirco Müller set on creating yet another desktop clock, but the developer chose to base his Cairo-clock on vectorial SVG images created with Inkscape. I was able to create a new skin in 15 minutes by editing some of the 12 layers, and it was so easy I plan to do several other skins.

Inkscape fit for professional environment

I’ve been working almost exclusively with Inkscape for the last 14 months. Version 0.46 now does a remarkable job at importing Adobe’s native AI and PDF, and exporting PDF’s. The AI format is still proprietary, but in July 2008, Adobe’s Portable Document Format became an ISO Open Standard, meaning that it is publicly available and that it can be implemented in applications for free.

For the sake of corporate compatibility, I am still designing my presentation layouts on Illustrator to save them in PDF, but I have to admit that Inkscape definitely rocks when it comes to flexibility. The SVG’s Alpha Transparency allows me to reach better coloud fading effects and I find Inkscape much faster in processing shapes with quantities of nodes in the three zeroes figures.

SVG Open 2008

6th International Conference on Scalable Vector Graphics
26th to 28th August
Nuremberg | Germany

The world conference on SVG, the versatile ‘HTML of graphics’ standard, this year takes place in the beautiful city center of Nuremberg. That is in the south of Germany, a country in which many people watch Football through SVG-enabled phones, or maybe pick the seat for their flights on SVG-enabled websites. Nueremberg does even have its own SVG Logo that can be seen here!

On this conference you can learn about subjects varying from specialized technical visualizations to interactive multimedia art. On the program there are presentations, beginner and advanced level workshops, a technical exhibition, and the opportunity to meet people from the SVG community, industry and the W3C SVG Working Group.

SVG Open 2008 is organised by examotion in affiliation with W3C.
