GNOME 3.12 Can Be Enhanced with the Beautiful Zukitwo Theme

Filed under
GNOME

The Zukitwo theme was one of the first to get GNOME 3.12 support, shortly after the launch of the new desktop environment. This theme only works with GNOME Shell 3.12 and GTK+ 3.12, which means that it might create problems on other systems.

According to the changelog, the progress bar has been corrected and the button border is now better focused. This should make the buttons much more visible.

INTRODUCING GTKINSPECTOR

Filed under
Development
GNOME

If you need to solve a tricky GTK+ problem in your application, gtkparasite is a very useful tool to have around. It lets you explore the widget hierarchy, change properties, tweak theme settings, and so on.

Unfortunately, gtkparasite is a tool for people ‘in the know’ - it is not part of GTK+, not advertised on our website, and not available out of the box on your average GTK+ installation.

At the Developer Experience hackfest in Berlin a few weeks ago, the assembled GTK+ developers discussed fixing this situation by making an interactive debugger like gtkparasite part of GTK+ itself. This way, it will be available whenever you run a GTK+ application, and we can develop and improve the debugging tools alongside the toolkit.

GNOME's Tracker 1.0.1 Gets a Ton of Fixes

Filed under
Software
GNOME

The Tracker developer took a very big leap when the GNOME 3.12 branch was release and they decided that it’s the perfect time to ditch the old numbering system, which advanced really hard (the last stable was 0.17.2) and to get to 1.0.

The package was stable to a long time, but it must have created some confusion to have something numbered like that.

GNOME: TARBALLS DUE: 3.12.2

Filed under
GNOME

Now is the time for a new update to our stable release, this is 3.12.2.

Tarballs are due on 2014-05-12 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.12.2
stable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which
were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable
schedule so everyone can test them. Please make sure that your
tarballs will be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded
later than that will probably be too late to get in 3.12.2. If you
are not able to make a tarball before this deadline or if you think
you'll be late, please send a mail to the release team and we'll
find someone to roll the tarball for you!

Mozilla Firefox 58

  • Latest Firefox Quantum release available with faster, always-on privacy with opt-in Tracking Protection and new features
    We accept things in the online world that we wouldn’t accept in the physical one. For instance, how would you feel if you popped your head in a store and that store now had the ability to keep sending you flyers even if you didn’t buy anything? Online, we often visit sites that track us, but it isn’t clear when this is happening or how the information is being used. Adding insult to injury, this often invisible tracking actually slows down web pages.
  • Firefox 58 Arrives With Continued Speed Optimizations
    Mozilla has set free Firefox 58.0 today as their latest "Firefox Quantum" release that continues work on being a performant web browser.

  • Firefox 58: The Quantum Era Continues
    2017 was a big year for Mozilla, culminating in the release of Firefox Quantum, a massive multi-year re-tooling of the browser focused on speed, and laying the groundwork for the years to come. In 2018, we’ll build on that incredible foundation, and in that spirit our next several releases will continue to bear the Quantum moniker. Let’s take a look at some of the new goodies that Firefox 58 brings.
