Website update: current status
by Maren Hachmann
Martin, Bryce and Travis from our friendly hosters at OSUOSL have worked
on switching the inkscape.org website to the newer version this evening.
In some parts of the world, due to DNS propagation, you might not yet
see the new page, but you will soon (it looks pretty much the same,
though, just the backend is newer).
It now features a new shiny django (yay!).
Unfortunately, it currently has problems with page edits, news edits and
Please hold off editing anything on it, to not lose any work.
Martin is working on fixing things, and will let you know when it's good
for editing again.
Downloads and viewing the pages work as usual (except for viewing pasted
texts), so most people won't be affected by the issues.

I had suggested updates for the old doc on Floss Manuals and Maren let me know about the new project.
I’m a technical writer and have been using Inkscape more and more recently.
I see there are a number of open proofreading issues, I could certainly help with these but if there are higher priorities, let me know.
I’ve glanced at the new manual, I’ll take a more in-depth look to familiarise myself with the style/layout etc.

Vector vs Bitmap page
by Antoine Vanderschueren
I'm a Belgian CS-student at the UCLouvain and for our open-source course we're asked to contribute to such a project.
While I'm figuring out how the source code is put together, I'd love to help make a webpage explaining the differences between vector graphics and bitmap graphics (as requested here: https://inkscape.org/contribute/to-do-list/).
Since the Github issue is stale I wondered if this was still necessary.
Thanks in advance,
