M.eik Michalke and his team decided to revive the Open Music Contest – a contest for strictly Creative Commons-licensed music:
It was organized by the “Musikpiraten” – a subdivision of the political party “Die Piraten” here in germany – for a couple of years now, operating under the name “Free!Music!Contest!” for bands localized in germany only. This year it will be the first time that this contest operates on a global scale – every Creative Commons musician in the world is invited to take part.
All of my bands joined the contest as long as it exists now and made it on the CD year after year. This time unfortunately I don’t have any band so my support in 2015 amounts to nothing more than announcing the event.
To get things up and running M.eik initiated a crowd funding campaign:
So if you feel like supporting free music is a cool attitude please donate a couple of bucks to them.
And now go on and rock the freaking house! At best with music produced exclusively in Linux 😉
The new level meters can be drawn horizontally and vertically. Additionally they can be styled and layouted in various ways (LED amount/width/height/border and the like). They are entirely drawn with Cairo now.

The Guitarix website is now available on a new domain:
And on another server of course which is much more responsive than the sourceforge webservers.
The forums got a smaller design update, too.
