Warm gray's liberation is officially delayed


Even if our earlier post was based on a real and outrageous e-mail exchange between Gimp developer David Neary and the marketing department of Pantone (trying to find a solution so that FLOSS softwares could use the copyrighted colorsystem)... and even if the Color Universal Design (CUD) organization does exist (and is interesting!)... the liberation of twenty new warm grays was only one of the many dreams that OSP had on this sunny Belgian 1st of April (and we hoped the same for those 1866 other jailed colors). A well-known colorblind OSP co-author of the hoax confirms: "Adding shades of gray is not a solution. Instead, give the vision defect preview in Scribus a try".
