Whats? In short, daily GNOME OS Images!
GNOME 3.10 is coming September 25!
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 [...]
In GNOME 3.8, two new applications (Clocks & Photos) came alongside to existent new generation G-Apps: Boxes, Contacts and Documents. Whats following next? Notes, Calendar, Software, Videos, Music and the new-born just 8 days old Maps. Of course there is branstorming for even more core G-Apps, like Text or Email, but this is another story [...]
GNOME Foundation released its 25th version of the community driven OS inside 14 years (Mar 1999- Mar 2013) and maybe, just maybe, this this is one of the most hard-worked releases ever, in their history. Without bothering about the new features, what 3.8 really brings is speed. Speed ot doing things!
I think that bug only concerns Fedora 19 installations that come with Initial Setup or any other distribution that you have manually installed Gnome-Initial-Setup, like an upgrade from F18->F19. As a workaround of a broken GDM you could use lightdm instead, but it seems there is a second solution to use GDM and therefore the [...]
Many good things happens lately for Gnome users. The magnificent GNOME 3.8 is arriving next Wednesday (Yeap, just in a week from today!) and Fedora also is preparing a really awesome release! If you have some spare time, get the GNOME 3.7.92 ISO today, and participate to Gnome 3.8 Test Day all day tomorrow!
There was a discussion in GNOME Mailing Lists about the name of GNOME Classic Mode. The name remained Classic, but someone proposed to re-name it to Flintstones; What more classic than this? GNOME users in March 27 with the 3.8 release, will get two options in Login Screen (GDM), GNOME and GNOME Classic, or GNOME [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
As Gnome 3.8 is halfway through, we all get more and more excited by the new amazing features and improvements that we are going to reap soon, but what is going on with the eleven current Gnome goals? Are we going to have a more consistent Gnome in version 3.8, or are some of the [...]
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 [...]
The goal that Gnome board of directors set for the upcoming year is to improve the safety features of our favorite desktop environment by implementing and integrating special tools and features. To achieve this goal, Gnome is once again asking for the active contribution of the users in both participating in the development and in [...]
GNOME members launched a GNOME Community on Google Plus! They started it two days ago, and it counts 93 members. Current moderators are Allan Day, Sriram Ramkrisha and William Jon McCann.
Ellipsis or three dots character (…), is a core part of any User Interface Design and indicates to the user that additional information is required before the associated operation can be performed. Ellipsis is a Unicode Character (0×2026) and benefits controls like buttons to have more clear typography. It seems that Gnome just now adopts [...]
It has been known that GNOME 3.8 will support a GNOME 2-ish environment through extensions. What wasn’t clear is if that option would be included in Gnome Control Center (similar to Fallback) or in Gnome Tweak Tool. Neither will happen. GNOME “Classic” will start up a separate session, and that means we can choose it from [...]
Fallback mode is going away – what now?, is the question that Matthias Clasen does in Gnome Desktop Lists. The point is that Gnome wants to support a more “classical mode”, as many people requested it and now that Fallback is gone, Gnome do (or will) the best move. They will provide support for a traditional [...]
What a nice day to make some propaganda :) According to Ohloh.net Gnome is the most actively developed open source project (inside ~560.000 other projects) for Sep 12 – Oct 12, with 4068 commits from 308 contributors! The funny part is that Gnome overcomes the runner up Chrome/Chromium, just by one single commit!
Gnome outreach program for women internships, is a specialized effort to bring more women in to Gnome development for a few months, with the hope that the contributions and the development will happen equally from men and from women in the future. This year’s program will begin in January 2 and finish at April 2, [...]
