Looking at Fedora 20 Design Suite and onward

The latest itteration of Design Suite was successful using the latest stable release of Gnome 3.10.x. This time the testing went much better with some fixes to address. The goal to include applications with the style of Adobe Creative Suite is nearly complete with: Gimp (Photoshop), Inkscape (Illustrator and Framework), Scribus(InDesign), Premiere (PiTiVi), Acrobat (Evince, PDFShuffle, Xournal), in addition of Paints, Blender 3D and Hugin. Looking at the future release, here are some possible updates to implements: Add more categories for Gnome Shell (see  How to enable categories in Gnome 3.8 Shell application menu ), More plugins for Gimp notably gimp-separate+ for rudimentary CMYK support although Scribus does a better job, Inclusion of Tweak Tools . I personally think that application should be part of Setting Tools and possibly renamed as Advanced Settings, More Gnome 3.12 features Stay tuned...

Using Bluetooth to listen phone music

I recently discovered it is possible to listen to a music from smartphone connected with a laptop via Bluetooth. The test was done using a custom cyanogemod for a discontinued Samsung Galaxy Mini Dart and an updated Fedora 20 beta using BlueZ5 . The sound is jerky probably due to probably the hardware limit.
