The Future Of Docky

Filed under
Software
Interviews

Since the news of Do and Docky's mutual decision to split to better serve users of both apps, a lot of readers have been left confused, worried and annoyed.

To clear things up, get some background on the decision to split and get some juicy insights on the future of Docky, I spoke to Docky developer and all-round nice guy Jason Smith.

Jason talks about the reasons behind the "split", discusses docklets and themes, why Docky will be in Gnome-Do for a bit longer yet, Gnome-Shell’s impact and even hints at a release date for the new standalone Docky!

Can you explain to those left confused by the decision to split just why Docky has decided to become it's own separate application and no longer be part of Gnome-Do?

And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
