Report from the Essen dev meeting
From 28th April to 1st May the QGIS project organized another successful developer meeting at the Linuxhotel in Essen, Germany. Here is a quick summary of the key topics I’ve been working on during these days.
New logo rollout
It’s time to get the QGIS 3 logo out there! We’ve started changing our social media profile pictures and Website headers to the new design:
Resource sharing platform
In QGIS 3, the resource sharing platform will be available by default – just like the plugin manager is today in QGIS 2. We are constantly looking for people to share their mapping resources with the community. During this developer meeting Paolo Cavallini and I added two more SVG collections:
Unified Add Layer button
We also discussed the unified add layer dialog and are optimistic that it will make its way into 3.0. The required effort for a first version is currently being estimated by the developers at Boundless.
The new TimeManager version 2.4 fixes a couple of issues related to window resizing and display on HiDPI screens. Additionally, it now saves all label settings in the project file. This is the change log:
- Fixed #222: hide label if TimeManager is turned off - Fixed #156: copy parent style to interpolation layer - Fixed #109: save label settings in project - Fixed window resizing issues in label options gui - Fixed window resizing issues in video export gui - Fixed HiDPI issues with arch gui
I may be wrong, but in QGIS 3, there’s no sign of the Resource Sharing platform. Did it make it?
I think it’s currently being updated
That’s great news!
