"Support Open Animation projects! Because they cary a lot of potential for inovation."-- Julia
FSCONS 2012: "Open animation projects: state of the art, problems and perspectives"
We all know of the Blender Projects, like Elephants Dream, Big Buck Bunny and Sintel, but do you know of any more? Creating an animated movie is hard. Many enthusiasts start projects up that soon thereafter unfortunatly die off.
The state of this area of interest is what Julia Velkova has concentrated her resarch on. At FSCONS 2012 she gave the first part of a presentation, painting a picture of the state of matters, then followed by open animator Konstantin Dimitriev who introduced both the Morevna Project and the free and open source tool Synfig Studio.
At this presentation Konstantin showed the premiere trailer for his animé movie "The Beautiful Queen Marya Morevna", a modernized version of a traditional Russian tail. Both the trailer and Julia and Konstantins presentations are availible on YouTube.
Konstantin has used indiegogo to crowdfund a full time developer for Synfig Studio. He wrote: "I am mentoring a full-time developer Ivan Mahonin, who is working on Synfig code. We have funded his work in previous months by running similar fundraising campaigns for October, November, December, January and February." So go help them with the rest of 2014 as well!
Go help the Morevna Project and Synfig Studio, follow both Julia and Konstantin on Twitter to get updates on this very interesting part of the free and open community that I suspect we sometimes might forget.

In the news, Ubuntu backtrack on more design decisions, mobile news from MWC 2014, and thoughts about Linux Containers and the global server market.
Joe had a look at Madbox in First Impressions, and next show Paddy will again be in Arch territory with Bridge Linux.
An interesting and varied Feedback section this show – we really do appreciate the input so many listeners give us.
Great on your phone, but on the desktop? We tried Android-x86 as our main OS so you don’t have to.
Sitting down with a well earned pint, Joe idly wondered if anyone needs desktop Linux any more?

Uncut video version of this episode on YouTube
Hosts: Dan & Fab
Angela and Chase take a spin off of Unfilter and discuss some major news stories that go mostly untold and also some that are complete hoaxes.
It hasn't been that long since the last show, honestly. That lump of a duffus Pete released EP69 too early that's all. So what's the team found to lie about this time then? The guy's poke fun at The Show That Cannot Be Named and Pete whines that Bad Voltage seem to be permanently spamming him with notifications and then it descends into having a right laugh at poor old Jono Bacon's expense and especially that terrible book he wrote.
WhatsApp? WhatsApp? Facebook has bought WhatsAPP for a whopping $19 Billion but shouldn't someone tell them they already own an IM service? DropBox updates its terms and conditions but Matt is still bemused why Pete put it in calling it a "None story" This story sent to us by rubbish listener John Lewis should probably be titled "So much for security." as we hear that Apple's SSL certificate authentication is not been worth the paper its printed on for years! Oh and by the way here's the link for the test page to try out. Lets hope it fails for you too? Systemd, will this subject ever die? The team discuss the announcement that Ubuntu will ditch all the work it has been doing over the last four years and adopt systemd which makes Pete call Mark Shuttleworth a coward for not taking the chance to go his own way.

The forum is down! Matt has no idea when he will fix it, in fact he's not sure he wants to. :-(
