The GNOME Project thanks Red Hat for their recent donation of two new servers. The donation is part of a wider plan aiming to consolidate the location of the various GNOME servers around the globe into one single datacenter. This will help ease day-to-day operations and reduce intervention time in the case of network disruptions or outages.
GNOME Project's Matthias Clasen sent us an email today, April 29, 2016, with information about the release of the first snapshot towards the upcoming GNOME 3.22 desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating systems.
Yes, we're talking about GNOME 3.21.1, whose launch was expected a couple of days ago, on April 27, 2016, as the GNOME app maintainers have been informed at the end of last week that the GNOME 3.21.1 unstable tarballs were due Monday, April 25. For those of you not in the loop, the development cycle of GNOME 3.22 happens under the 3.21 umbrella.
GTK+ 3.20 was released a while ago; we’re up to 3.20.3 now. As I tried to explain in earlier posts here and here, this was a pretty active development cycle for GTK+. We landed a lot of of new stuff, and many things have changed.
I’m using the neutral term changed here for a reason. How you view changes depends a lot on your perspective. Us, who implemented the changes, are of course convinced that they are great improvements. Others who maintain GTK+ themes or applications may have a different take, since changes often imply that they have to do work to adapt.
GNOME is helping you to improve security by wiping away that breadcrumb trail. Instead of having to manage these issues in various places such as display settings, file manager, and location settings, the developers of GNOME put these security-centric settings in one location: the GNOME Privacy tool.
development of the next GNOME release, 3.22, has started, and the
first snapshot, 3.21.1, is now available. This is a very early snapshot,
and not too much has landed yet; I expect that to change soon.
To compile GNOME 3.21.1, you can use the jhbuild  modulesets 
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).
I talked a bit with Mattias Bengtsson before, and since he had been contemplating using OpenTripPlanner (OTP) for his GSoC project a couple of year ago and found it didn't scale too well for general turn-based routing, he was quite excited about my idea of combing GraphHopper and OTP, using OTP with just transit data (loaded from GTFS feeds).
GNOME Software Update That Fixes Installing Third-Party Deb Files Lands In Ubuntu 16.04 Proposed Repository
A GNOME Software update that fixes the issue with installing third-party deb files was pushed to the Ubuntu 16.04 Proposed repository a few minutes ago.
GNOME Software is a new software center ('add/remove programs' application) for any GNU/Linux system using GNOME desktop environment. At this time, there are just a few third-party reviews about GNOME Software. This article is a general beginner guide about how to use GNOME Software. For this purpose we use the GNOME Software in Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus. Thanks to the developers who created GNOME Software. We hope this article helps new users.
Hats of for making it happen in India again. Most of the information regarding conference available at web. Though i am using Gnome almost 10+ years, this is my first Gnome summit and also mine first conference as a Keynote speaker.
I was recently asked how to make 3rd party repositories add apps to GNOME Software. This is relevant if you run a internal private repo for employee tools, or are just kind enough to provide a 3rd party repo for Fedora or RHEL users for your free or non-free applications.
ORINDA, CA. Recently, the GNOME Foundation sent out a request seeking donations of ARM build server hardware so that the GNOME project could improve the support and quality of the GNOME desktop on ARM devices.
The Outreachy page has announced the interns for the May-August 2016 internship. There are five interns who will work with GNOME. I look forward to working with Ciarrai, Renata, and Diana on usability testing for GNOME. Congratulations on being accepted to the internship!
