Forwarding message from Martin to the correct list address:
Dear Developers, Translators and affable Users of Inkscape,
The Inkscape website at inkscape.org will be down for upgrades soon.
This is dependent on when bryce is available for DNS change over.
The process involves moving the website to the new CentOS 7.6 server
from OSUOSL which is now setup, you can reach this new server by
manually setting your /etc/hosts for inkscape.org to 18.104.22.168 and
Everyone is invited to visit the new site, it looks exactly like the
old one. To see if it's still working correctly. It now uses python3
and django 1.11, so there's quite an upgrade planned for all the tech.
But so far it's holding steady.
The plan is to display this message to users, English only.
http://22.214.171.124/ while we move the database and sync up the media.
Best Regards, Martin Owens

This is to announce a new extension /Chipscratches/
It generates a rectangle of visual noise: chips, scratches, and specks.
These come from a library written by C R, my co-author.
This is a beta version, so feedback is requested, especially about the
value of existing features and some new ones mentioned in the description.
