GNOME 3.17.91 beta tarballs due (and more) (responsible: jjardon)

Filed under
GNOME

We would like to inform you about the following:
* GNOME 3.17.91 beta tarballs due
* String Freeze

Tarballs are due on 2015-08-31 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.17.91
beta 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 3.17.91. 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!

Viewing LibreOffice Documents In GNOME Will Soon Be A Better Experience

Filed under
LibO
GNOME

Viewing LibreOffice documents inside GNOME Documents (the Evince Viewer) will soon yield a better experience thanks to work accomplished this year as part of Google's Summer of Code.

Second-time GSoC student developer Pranav Kant focused this year on improving the LibreOffice support within GNOME Documents. His GSoC project summary explained, "Integrate gtktiledviewer into GNOME-Documents - Today, GNOME Documents spawns LibreOffice via a rather unreliable unoconv command-line that converts documents to PDF. It is not only unreliable but also the results are not good, for example, spreadsheet rendering results are quite bad. With this project, we would be improving the existing libreofficekit based gtk tiled renderer, which would, then, be a very good replacement of the unreliable unoconv command in gnome-documents."

  • First Beta for GNOME 3.18 Is Out and Ready for Testing

    The GNOME development team has announced that the first Beta update GNOME 3.18 is now out and ready for testing. There is still a long way to go until the stable version is released, but the project is now in software freeze.

  • GNOME 3.17.90 (first beta release)
  • GNOME 3.18 Beta Released, Now In Feature Freeze

    The GNOME 3.18 beta is now available ahead of the planned GNOME 3.18.0 release in late September.

  • Code has landed in Polari

    Polari now indicates the status of each connection next to the connection’s name in the sidebar. If Polari encounters an error, an error icon is displayed. Clicking on the connection in the sidebar, will show a popover with error details and an action which can possibly solve it.

  • Other Locations on Nautilus (GSoC final report)

    Yes, Nautilus now is able to display Other Locations view, and finally it caught up with Gtk+ file chooser! It’s already on master, so anyone can test it with jhbuild. Also, Nautilus 3.17.90 already includes it, so Fedora Rawhide users (and any other bleeding edge distro) will be able to test.

GNOME 3.17.90 (first beta release)

Filed under
GNOME

Hi all,

GUADEC is now over, we had a great time in Gothenburg (special thanks
to the local organizers!) and got home in time to polish patches and
merge branches, to publish the first beta of this cycle, GNOME 3.17.90.

First beta means we have now entered The Freeze:

- API/ABI Freeze (No API or ABI changes should be made in the
platform libraries),

- Feature Freeze (No new features can be added anymore, let's focus
on stability and give the documentation team time to document the
new things),

- UI Freeze (same idea).

GNOME 3.18's Mutter Will Fix A Longstanding NVIDIA Issue

Filed under
GNOME

Thanks to recent investigating by NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner and GNOME's Rui Matos, the NVIDIA screen update/flickering problems should be solved. Aaron earlier this month posted a patch for fixing a GL_EXT_x11_sync_object race condition within GNOME Mutter's compositor. Fixing that code in the compositor plus other work by Rui should fix things up for affected binary NVIDIA users.

Which Android phone Will Take The Crown For The Best Smartphone Of 2015?

Ascertaining the best Android phones for 2015 is a tough task primarily because of the huge number of measurability critirea that are needed to gauge that. It has to be first ascertained whether the list would include only high-end phones or would also include low-end (but feature-rich) phones. As per an IDC report, Google Inc's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android phones would constitute 80% of the smartphone market by 2020 due to the platform being the most popular for smartphone vendors who do not want to go through the labor of making their own operating systems.
