GNOME 3.10 is Here

Filed under
Software

In a post to the GNOME Announce mailing list just a few minutes ago, Matthias Clasen announced the release of GNOME 3.10. It was almost a month ago we were looking forward to the release with some of the upcoming highlights. It seems most of what was introduced then made it into the final release, with perhaps some surprises as well.

Probably the most significant to outsiders looking in is the experimental support for Wayland, "which allows GNOME as well as GNOME applications to be run using Wayland." The announcement said, "This is an important milestone on the road to full Wayland adoption, and will let developers test their software with Wayland." Bastien Nocera posted a screenshot of GNOME under Wayland using multi-screens, one of which is a television set.

An open source, e-commerce friendly CMS

Developers Peter Ivanov, Alex Raikov, and I came up with the idea for Microweber about five years ago, when we were all having problems building sites with the existing solutions. Microweber aims to take the complexity out of building a website, online shop, or blog, through a combination of drag-and-drop UI and real-time, WYSIWYG site edits. From the beginning, it's been an open source project. The earliest versions were licensed under GPL, but we switched to Apache License version 2.0 to allow the developers to protect their work and have commercial merits. Read more

What is open source? Licensing, history, and more

Another example of open source: You wouldn’t buy a car with the hood welded shut, so why do we buy proprietary software? If you can’t see what’s going on and see what’s happening under the hood then you’re stuck with the car exactly the way it is and that might not be so great. While some people are fine with that, computer geeks shouldn’t be. We should want to get in there and tinker with it. Read more
