SixtyFPS became Slint

We skipped last week's weekly since we already had an announcement out: SixtyFPS became Slint and we released Version 0.2!

It was exciting for us to see the reactions on Reddit, HackerNews and even at Heise, a well-respected IT media company here in Germany. It was very interesting for us to see the reactions of people who had not heard of Slint (or SixtyFPS) before.

MCU progress

We continued progressing on the work to port Slint to work on micro controller. See pictures of our target device, the RaspberryPi Pico, which proves that we can run our demo on a device which only has 264KiB of RAM, and 2MiB of flash.
