One of the most controversial features that is being discussed since Gnome Shell 3.4 is back again…
Gnome 3.8 has been released and apart from the various Gnome libraries, services and core parts that have been upgraded, we should take a look on the applications and utilities that are also part of Gnome. How did the tools that we will be using every day evolved? What new exciting features and improvements consist [...]
Gnome 3.8 has been released and apart from the various Gnome libraries, services and core parts that have been upgraded, we should take a look on the applications and utilities that are also an important part of Gnome. How did the tools that we will be using every day evolved? What new exciting features and [...]
There is no question what is the best new feature in GNOME 3.8. What was worst in 3.6 it now became the very best! Of course I’m talking about nothing else than the Pressure behavior to open Notifications Tray. Another great work from Jasper St. Pierre, who he also get us smooth scrolling support for [...]
I am placing the cursor on the top-left Hotspot, but nothing is happening, overview isn’t opening.What is going on? :( GNOME is trying to give us a bit of exercising, and Jasper port HotCorner to pressure barriers similar to Message Tray!
Two more new things arrived for Shell 3.8, no-matter the feature freeze deadline. The first and more significant is the partly-resolved fix of this annoying bug, that didn’t let you to use hardware keys while being in Overview. The second is a nice addition that shows us if we have new messages in Overview, since [...]
Florian Mullner submitted a patch that keeps Overview open when a Control key is held. This 19-only lines patch will be one of the greatest new features in GNOME Shell 3.8, together with the pressure sensitivity Message Tray. But there is much more to come, no matter the feature freeze. Shell is cool because is a [...]
This is one of my favorites new additions in GNOME 3.8. Okay, it isn’t very useful for single-account systems but is a nice feature when you’re sharing a GNOME box with your family or your friends. Assuming you are the admin of the system, you can monitor the log-ins/outs of the rest users from within [...]
This is a bit too early and I will probably will re-print this when GNOME 3.8 is out. However it seems many guys and girls are already using the latest GNOME which is great, as I guess they give some feedback. So in GNOME 3.8 categories were replaced by AppsFolders, and if you aren’t quite [...]
GNOME Shell 3.8 beta has been released yesterday and brings hundreds of changes and bug-fixes. Of course GNOME isn’t just Shell (or is it?) and the whole GNOME 3.8 beta brings probably thousands of changes in all modules. Personally I consider this release as 3.0, in the sense that this is how should 3.0 be [...]
And it arrived just few hours before the 3.8 beta release! However Shell will ask probably some more time before “features freeze” as there are more exciting things to come. Categories removed, application groups came, there is now a view for frequent use applications, and many new animations added. There is still some work going [...]
Magica put a spell on GNOME Shell and it seems that more and more users’ requests are getting fulfilled by Gnomers in this version . The latest addition is a context menu in GNOME background that is enabled by right click or by holding down/long press the left (for touch screens). I bet this new [...]
Testing and even using not-ready-yet technology of tomorrow is something that characterizes almost any Gnome user out there. Many of us want to see the new exciting changes that the 3.8 release will bring, test the new features and see how the new version our favorite DE is evolving in almost real time.
GNOME Release Team and Florian Mullner announced the immediate availability of Shell and Mutter 3.6.3 that closes 4+2 bugs and updates several translations. Speaking of bugs, yesterday sysAdmins of GNOME moved the 25GB Bugzilla database to another disk, and that caused bugzilla.gnome -and other services- to be down for some time.
Since today we could access our Settings-> Notifications Panel by typing “Notifications” in Shell Overview, or by launching Settings. Adel Gadllah pushed a couple of hours ago a context menu to Messages Tray that let us clear in a single click all attached notifications, and additionally Shell give us a fast access to modify notifications [...]
In GNOME 3.4 you could access the notification panel from right-bottom hot corner. In GNOME 3.6 you could access notifications panel by letting for 1sec the mouse pointer on the whole of the bottom screen edge. In GNOME 3.8 we will get a “pressure sensitivity” behavior to trigger Notifications Panel. The new design is possible [...]
Working on under the hood improvements is essential and vital for Gnome, but since so many new things were introduced for the upcoming release already, some polishing was certainly needed. The 3.7.5 release brings lots of fixes on the way many new things are displayed, and also raises the user experience quality through some smart [...]
We all know the plans of GNOME to release a more classic desktop that mimics the old GNOME2. So I gave it a try. I would like to screencasting it but GNOME’s video recorder is bugged in 3.7.4, so I just go with screenshots for now. I just used it for a couple of hours [...]
Gnome’s design playground is a happy place where everyone is allowed and encouraged to make a design proposal, discuss the possible problems of the idea or the implementation, and finally collaborate with others. As these ideas are not always good or very well thought out, many of them change dramatically till they get implemented, or [...]
Two more visual changes were pushed in GNOME Shell, one from Cosimo that makes a fixed width in GNOME Shell Search Overview and the other from Jasper who improves the algorithm of the Window Sizes in Overview. These changes will be included in 3.7.5 that is not yet released. Also Terminal has now an Application [...]
