Welcome back to this multi-part tutorial in how to create xdg-app applications. In part 1 we installed everything we needed and manually created our first application. In this part we will build a more complex application, using the basic xdg-app tools.
dbus-glib debuted in 2002 and was the first usable D-Bus client library for GLib-based applications. NetworkManager used it since the earliest commits in mid-2004.
Being released a bit late today past the official GNOME 3.20 Beta is the v3.19.90 releases for the GNOME Shell and Mutter.
The Mutter 3.19.90 release adds basic startup notification support on Wayland. There is also now pointer motion, locks, and confinement support on Wayland.
As alternative to Google Summer of Code, applications are being accepted for the next season of Outreachy. Outreachy is open to "women (cis&trans), trans men, genderqueer ppl world-wide & ppl of color underrepresented in US tech."
