Filed under
Software

Matthias Clasen proudly announced a few minutes ago, November 15, that the second and last maintenance release of the GNOME 3.6 desktop environment is now available for download.

GNOME 3.6.2 is a necessary upgrade for all users of GNOME 3.6, bringing many enhancements, squashing numerous bugs and updating lots of translations.

An interesting thing to mention about this release is that it comes with a greatly improved GNOME Shell, Nautilus, NetworkManager and GNOME Control Center apps. Also, the Empathy IM client has a few interesting changes, as well as the GNOME Online Accounts and GNOME Settings Manager.

On the boundaries of GPL enforcement

Last October, the Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) and Free Software Foundation (FSF) jointly published "The Principles of Community-Oriented GPL Enforcement". That document described what those organizations believe the goal of enforcement efforts should be and how those efforts should be carried out. Several other organizations endorsed the principles, including the netfilter project earlier this month. It was, perhaps, a bit puzzling that the project would make that endorsement at that time, but a July 19 SFC blog post sheds some light on the matter.

Based on the blog post by Bradley Kuhn and Karen Sandler, though, it would seem that Patrick McHardy, who worked on netfilter, is the kernel developer in question. McHardy has also recently been suspended from the netfilter core team pending his reply to "severe allegations" with regard to "the style of his license enforcement activities". Read more
