2021/10/11: Some Progress / Jour Fixe
Zerocat Artwork ships new, simple screen backgrounds, which look very nice in conjunction with the boot menu provided by Zerocat Coreboot Machines.
The Jour Fixe moves from sundays to mondays. See Team Page. This gives room for family activities on week-ends.

- Logotypes and graphics are now shipped with Zerocat Artwork. Let’s go for new logotypes, screen backgrounds, as well as T-Shirt templates.
- Zerocat Project Template offers a simple project skeleton with markdown-based documentation system. It is meant as a starting point for new projects, and to ease contribution.
- Zerocat Coreboot Machines now comes with version “v0.15.0”, which in turn uses upgraded Coreboot, GRUB2 and SeaBIOS. The bootmenu has been refined to support encrypted disks behind USB-SATA-Adapters.
- Projects Zerocat Turning Hook, Zerocat PS/2-Keyboard and Zerocat Label Documentation have been cleaned up.

2020/12/23: Free designs become even more important these times, as we see that societies rely on solidarité rather than on commercial market in cases of emergency. The right way to go is to request free designs not only for software, hardware and seeds, but for immunology vaccine as well. — K. Mertens
