  • add dgedit (editor for drumgizmo)

Audio Core

Audio Plugins

  • add drumgizmo (new valuable plugin, but also standalone application)


  • replace gnome-color-manager with dispcalgui (GCM is not desktop agnostic, and does not work on XFCE, as contrary to dispcalgui - also REMOVE GCM desktop files from -default-settings)
  • replace agave with gpick as a color picker and scheme generator. Better features both for artists and design. (note: agave will still remain as it is a dependency).
  • add makehuman. We have no other program that does this. Has export that blender can use.
  • add mandelbulber. We have no other program that does this.


  • add calibre. has a very well designed epub editor. There are currently no ebook editors in our graphics package.
  • add pdf-shuffler basic pdf editor to glue pdf files together, split them, rotate pages etc. Useful for artists or anyone doing an art application that requires everything to be in one pdf.
  • add plume-creator (specifically focused on creating stories, with workflows connected to that - we currently do not have anything like it - not strictly connected to "publishing", rather to "writing", or the freedesktop category "office".



  • replace recordmydesktop with vokoscreen (better application)
