"About this project
The course was funded in less than 12 hours! For every 1,000€ above the goal, you get a stretch point. Each point means extra tutorials, chosen by YOU!
For more details, please read this update post.
On top of that, there are extra milestones. Each unlocks big personal contributions to Godot 3.0!
In this course, you will learn to create your own top-down game inspired by Zelda, using the Free and Open Source game engine Godot.
Godot has everything you need to create great 2d games
It’s going to be much more than a step-by-step series. You will learn the best gamedev practices, explore fundamental programming concepts and become a better designer along the way!
You’ll get at least 40 tutorials to learn Godot, and 10 game creation assignments in the premium version. It will cover the full game loop, from the core mechanics to the user interface, including simple monster AI.

The higher the funding goes, the more you get! And that, regardless of your pledge. Every single cent will help to make the course as good and comprehensive as possible.

The training will be DRM free and available on Gumroad, where I already released 3 products, including 2 courses.

"Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 stable release (LTS)
Dear Init Freedom Lovers,
Once again the Veteran Unix Admins salute you!
Many of you might remember November 2014 when we announced that we were going to fork Debian. Well, we have done exactly that. It has been a long process, but now over two years later, we proudly present Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable.
There have been no significant bug reports since Devuan Jessie RC2 was announced only three weeks ago and the list of release critical bugs is now empty. So finally Devuan Jessie Stable is ready for release! As promised, this will also be a Long-Term-Support (LTS) release. Our team will participate in providing patches, security updates, and release upgrades beyond the planned lifespan of Debian Jessie.
A lot of appreciation has been coming our way in the last few weeks. And now with this Stable release we anticipate that even the most skeptical among private and enterprise users will finally be ready to jump on the Devuan train.
Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable is a major milestone in the new path drawn by the Devuan project and its development has provided an opportunity to lay down a strong foundation for the Devuan community. In the last two years we have put in place a powerful infrastructure to support the development and growth of Devuan, which now includes:
Source management git.devuan.org
Continuous integration ci.devuan.org
Bug tracking bugs.devuan.org
User forum dev1galaxy.org
Package statistics and analysis popcon.devuan.org
During the Jessie release cycle we have strenghtened and optimised these services and also migrated to more powerful hardware to cope with the increased loads we have experienced.
The ambitious plan to provide a no-nonsense universal GNU+Linux distribution does not stop here — it extends beyond this release.
Our main development efforts will now turn to Devuan ASCII (Minor Planet #3568), which will be the next stable release. We are confident that the preliminary ASCII ISOs could be available for testing soon. Beyond ASCII — the saga of Beowulf (Minor Planet #38086) appropriately mirrors the path we have taken. :^)
Please find below instructions to try out or install Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 Stable on your computer and to upgrade from Debian 7 (Wheezy) or Debian 8 (Jessie). If you are already using Devuan Jessie RC2, a simple apt-get update && apt-get upgrade will be enough to get the latest updates."

"Today, I want to highlight a derivative Pepper&Carrot video game and open-source project named "Pepper&Carrot — Endless Runner Game", made by WinterLicht. A first alpha build was released not long ago for both desktop computers and Android devices:
Desktop computer: PepperCarrotEndlessRunner_v0-1alpha_for-desktop.jar
(Java, MD5checksum: 287777fd9a2c797c2a8fe0e6cb710684)
Android APK: PepperCarrotEndlessRunner_v0-1alpha_for-android.apk
(Android , MD5checksum: e69b06b0b93f2b887adc01777e7d50b3)
All the code and assets of this game are Free, Libre and Open-Source (code under GPLv3 and assets under CC-By 4.0), and are available on GitHub. But I'll also host here a snapshot ZIP just in case. (sources, MD5checksum: a76ca1a32ff0585e174c1f316ec87c43 ).
WinterLicht is looking for new contributors! (musics, sound-fx, code, packaging, graphics, website, etc...) So, if you have related skills and want to help a beautiful project, feel welcome to improve something. This little open-source game deserves love and attention :-) Thank you WinterLicht for all the work done so far!"

Это просто праздник какой-то: linux.org.ru
"Состоялся первый публичный релиз системы управления версиями Pijul 0.3, написанной на языке программирования Rust. Pijul объединяет в себе производительность git и простоту использования darcs. Основанная на модели теории патчей, система Pijul направлена на то, чтобы сделать операции слияния и забора определенных коммитов (cherry-pick) более интуитивным.
Pijul можно установить при помощи Cargo (пакетного менеджера для Rust): команда cargo install pijul соберёт самую последнюю версию. Минимальная для сборки версия Rust — 1.15.1."
