Glade release to include GtkHeaderBar?

Is this cycle's release of glade/libglade going to include
GtkHeaderBar?  I looked through the git history and I didn't see
anything in there that indicated that anytihng was done.

This:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=700914

shows some progress.  But it seems we have missed the cut off for
this.  If it is a problem with developer resources, perhaps I can try
to find someone who is willing to help out provided there is a mentor?

We're a little behind, from what I understand the following widgets
from 3.10 onwards have not been implemented.  From the TODO:

Glib
* GMenu/GMenuModel (<menu> GtkBuilder element)
Because GMenu is in Glib library it can not implement GtkBuildable iface which
is in GTK+ this lead to implementing GMenu object construction in GtkBuilder
using a custom element <menu>
Ideally we should move GtkBuilder and GtkBuildable to Glib and rename them
GBuilder and GBuildable so that we can implemet GBuildable in GMenu object
A way to avoid this would be to create a new object type in GTK that derives
from GMenu say GtkMenuObject (GtkMenu is already taken ;) and make it implement
GtkBuildable iface.
* GAction, GSimpleAction, GActionGroup
GTK+ 3.4
* GtkApplication (add buildable iface to support GMenuModel?¿)
GTK+ 3.10
* GtkHeaderBar
* GtkSearchBar

moduleset changes

One of the action items from the release team BOF at guadec was to
publicize jhbuild moduleset changes.

So, here is a summary of moduleset changes that have happened since
Guadec, brought to you by the release team (all pretty uncontroversial
and obvious, I hope):

configuration changes
--------------------------------

libxkbcommon builds with --enable-x11 - mutter requires xkbcommon-x11
adwaita-icon-theme depends on librsvg
gtk+ suggests adwaita-icon-theme

new dependencies
---------------------------

libxcb 1.10 and xcb-proto - xbkcommon-x11 requires these
qqwing - gnome-sudoku uses this to generate puzzles
xwayland - mutter depends on it

dependency version changes
------------------------------------------

WebKit 2.5.3
WebKit 2.4.5
gnutls 3.1
lcms2 2.6
appstream-glib 0.2.x
poppler 0.26.4

GNOME 3.13.91 beta tarballs due (and more)

Hello all,

We would like to inform you about the following:
* GNOME 3.13.91 beta tarballs due
* String Freeze

Tarballs are due on 2014-09-01 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.13.91
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 3.13.91. 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!

No string changes may be made without confirmation from the i18n team
and notification to release team, translation team, and documentation
team. From this point, developers can concentrate on stability and
bug-fixing. Translators can work without worrying that the original
English strings will change, and documentation writers can take
accurate screenshots. For the string freezes explained, and to see
which kind of changes are not covered by freeze rules, check
https://wiki.gnome.org/TranslationProject/HandlingStringFreezes.

For more information about 3.13, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.13

GNOME 3.13.90 releases

Hi all,

In the course of packaging up GNOME 3.13.90, I was advised to switch to
webkit2gtk-4.0 (version 2.5.x) as the new epiphany browser would be
making use of this.

So I jumped into the trouble, adjusted all the packages that depended on
webkit2gtk-3.0 (I try to keep the number of variations low if possible)
and basically everything is set...

BASICALLY: up to this date, there hasn't been a single epiphany release
in the 3.13.x cycle. Is this still going to happen? Or are we no longer
supposed to package epiphany for distributions? :) I'm sure it's just an
oversight, but it happened in all 3.13.x releases so far.

Looking forward to get a release of epiphany 3.13.90 to showcase to our
users!

Stable release policy

Hi,

Is there any policy about releasing updates to stable branches beyond
the .1 release or is it simply up to each project?  I couldn't find this
info anywhere on the wiki...

Thanks,

GNOME HIG: Feedback Wanted

Hi all,

A new version of the HIG is in the works, to be released along with
GNOME 3.14 [1]. I'm currently looking for feedback.

I'm particularly interested to know if anything is missing, confusing,
or incorrect from a technical point of view (like if any of the
recommendations are impossible or very difficult to do with current
GTK+).

To read the latest version, just clone gnome-devel-docs and open
hig3/C/index.page with Yelp.

Thanks!

Allan

gnome-screensaver closed for new bugs

Hey,

After triaging all the open gnome-screensaver bugs, we closed
gnome-screensaver
for new bugs[1]. gnome-screensaver is not used in GNOME at all since
GNOME 3.8, and
isn't used in recent versions of Unity either.

Users should still be able to get help about it from their distributors.

Cheers

GNOME 3.13.90, first beta release!

and exhausted, we polished patches and merged branches, and here we
are, with a new release out, and what a release!, it's 3.13.90, the
first beta release of this cycle.

It's full of niceties. Lookup the time of any place in the world
directly from a shell search thanks to Clocks new search provider.
Watch Boxes install a Debian VM all automatically (this is thanks to
Lasse Schuirmann, and the occasion to thank all GSOC students!). Or
simply spend the evening playing a new game, Hitori.

To compile GNOME 3.13.90, you can use the jhbuild modulesets published
by the release team (which use the exact tarball versions from the
official release):

   https://developer.gnome.org/jhbuild/stable/

3.14 Release Notes

Hi everyone!

The 3.14 release is approaching fast, and UI freeze is almost upon us.
Now is a good time to start thinking about the Release Notes.

Please add any features you have worked on over this cycle to the wiki page:

https://wiki.gnome.org/ThreePointThirteen/ReleaseNotes

They can be big or small improvements - it doesn't matter.

Thanks,

Allan
