I recently discussed on IRC with dwcares from Miscrosoft who wants to
help us simplify precesses on windows.
Here is his email:
David Washington from Microsoft here. Earlier this afternoon I had
conversation with Marc about potentially publishing the Inkscape app to
the Windows Store, the app store for Windows 10 PCs.
The Windows Store now supports publishing Win32 Desktop apps with little
or no code change using the Windows Desktop Bridge. Taking advantage of
the Windows Desktop Bridge and Distributing through the Windows Store
also provides simplified options for automated updates, easy install
and uninstall, and provides a new distribution path for folks who may
have not found Inkscape before.
Our team has identified Inkscape as a top desktop app that we’d love to
see in the Windows Store. Given this we have some resources to help with
the process of getting this ported using the Windows Desktop Bridge and
published to the Windows Store. The process itself is lightweight, and
our team is equipped help walk you through getting it ported and
published. We’ve done some early investigation on the Inkscape binaries
and we haven’t identified any issues getting it published.
If this is something that seems interesting to you, we can get together
on the phone and talk through the details for the next steps of getting
this published. If you’d rather make progress in email/IRC, we’re happy
to accommodate what works for your team. We’re prepared to work with
you on getting this published as early as next week.
I look forward to working together. I’ve included some folks from my
team who will be helping you.

Eduard, Nicolas or Partha, iirc you're the ones doing stuff on windows,
could you take it from here if it seems interesting ?
It's been known for a while that rendering when zooming in on an area
with filters is slow. This is due to Inkscape breaking the canvas into
tiles and rendering each tile separately. Filter effects are
recalculated for each tile that they touch. A typical canvas for
maximized Inkscape window on a 1080p monitor is broken into about 25
tiles. If you are zoomed in so that the filter extends over the entire
visible canvas, you are recalculating the filter effect 25 times.
I've added a preference under the "Rendering" tab to change the
relative tile size (Rendering tile multiplier). Please play with
changing the value for your most complex drawings. I am most interested
in cases where a large multiplier has a negative impact. If there are
no cases with a negative impact, I'll set the default value higher (it
is currently 1).
It's Gurdit Again, I had requested the community to give feedback over the
proposal which I had proposed yesterday. I would like to thanks the members
who gave the feedback.
I have worked on the suggestions which where provided in the comments.
Here is the proposal link again. Along with the grammatical mistakes, the
second page(about inkscape) has been updated. I would again request a
feedback over the given proposal.

Hello! My name is Diana Causevic and I'm applying for the Inkscape GSoC. Just a few project ideas I had in mind. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
List of project ideas
- Bug Fixes
- Developing new widgets (or at least conceptualizing new possible widgets)
- Adding on to existing widgets (draw, erase, trace bitmap, etc)
- Creating more image effects
- Increasing runtime
- Creating more in-depth tutorials
- If profit is an issue perhaps create a purchasable version with exclusive additions.
It's Gurdit Again, early I have opted to go for ""Development Project
Management System" project under GSoC 2017.
Now, I have drafted a proposal for "Development Project Management System".
I would like to receive feedback on the proposal.

Hi all, I just wanted to make a much belated announcement. As many of you
know, I got involved with Inkscape as a result of the need to design labels,
etc, on a very very tight budget for products I was seeking to launch. Well,
as of this year, Lava Brew™ ( http://lavabrew.com -
https://twitter.com/lavabrew ) has officially gotten off the production line
and is now available in stores in the Greater Toronto Area (in Canada)! All
graphic design for Lava Brew was done in Inkscape (photo touch-ups in gimp,
and some CG elements in blender for promotional material).
Thank you so much to everyone involved in the Inkscape project, and
especially everyone who helped me toil away at all sorts of bugs affecting
my usability and all the questions I had.
Thanks again everyone, and if you are in the Toronto area and want to meet
up for samples, or wish to import/distribute Lava Brew™ to your country or
region, please feel free to contact me.

I posted a draft proposal about extension system a few days ago. But
afterwards I realized that it may not fit in with the roadmap very well and
is not complete. So I would like to switch to the slice toolbar items
project. The problem is I don't get the project description very well.
What's the difference between it and the eraser? It seems that slicing can
be achieved through erasing already.
