As software permeates more and more aspects of society, the FSF must expand our work to protect and extend computer user freedom. We launched our annual fundraiser with the goal of welcoming 500 new members and raising $450,000 before December 31st. Please support the work at the root of the free software movement: make a donation or – better yet – join us and become a member today. Now is a great time to give, because the next $10,000 in donations will be generously matched by longtime dedicated FSF and GNU supporters Cristian and Andreea Francu. (...)
The 0.92pre3 source package and the corresponding Windows versions have been released. The pre-release version contains a preview of a potential last minute new feature, that might be included in Inkscape 0.92, mesh gradients. It is our hope that raising visibility of this awesome feature will help motivate its inclusion in the SVG 2.0 specification, which is approaching finalization.
Please try the feature out, and if you like it, please advocate for its adoption by web browsers and other SVG using applications.
Whether we actually include it in 0.92 depends on hearing plenty of positive feedback. We'll also be paying attention to reports of problems. (...)
We are pushing to release Inkscape 0.92 with the Gradient Mesh Tool enabled, but to do this we need people to test it, give us feedback, and report bugs. Below are links to download the 3rd prerelease of 0.92. Please help, as users do tend to run into more issues/bugs than developers.

What is the GNU Hurd?
The GNU Hurd is the GNU project's replacement for the Unix kernel. It is a collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux). (...)
What is the mission of the GNU Hurd project?
Our mission is to create a general-purpose kernel suitable for the GNU operating system, which is viable for everyday use, and gives users and programs as much control over their computing environment as possible. (...)
The Hurd is a set of servers running on top of the GNU Mach microkernel. Together they build the base for the GNU operating system.
Currently, Debian is only available for Linux and kFreeBSD, but with Debian GNU/Hurd we have started to offer GNU/Hurd as a development, server and desktop platform, too. (...)
This is the Hurd. Welcome.
Welcome to the Arch Hurd website. Arch Hurd is a derivative work of Arch Linux porting it to the GNU Hurd system with packages optimised for the i686 architecture.
Our goal is to provide an Arch-like user environment (BSD-style init scripts, i686-optimised packages, use of the pacman package manager, rolling-release, and a KISS set up) on the Hurd which is stable enough for use, if not as a primary OS, at least as something to consider as a dual-boot option.
Currently we provide a LiveCD for users to install or try Arch Hurd for themselves, and provide an installation guide covering its use, as well as an alternate installation guide for users for whom the LiveCD is not an option, for whatever reason.
We are attempting to bring the spirit of Arch Linux to the Hurd, and if you'd like to help us achieve that, we'd love to hear from you on the mailing lists or IRC. (...)
There are several different ways to run a GNU/Hurd system:
Distrib - Distributions based on the Hurd
Xen - In Xen
QEMU - In QEMU
cloud - In the "cloud": OpenStack
chroots need a couple of tricks to work properly.
VirtualBox - In VirtualBox
