Librsvg 2.40.9 is released

Dear lovers of blurry vectors,

This is a new release of librsvg, 2.40.9, everyone's favorite SVG
rendering library made entirely of FREE/LIBRE AND OPEN SOURCE BITS.
This is a bugfix release, but what bugfixes!

- Fixed bgo#738367 - V/v/H/h commands in path elements were not
  working.  Patch by Andrea Griffini.
- Fixed bgo#605875 - Gaussian-blurred objects were sometimes missing.
  Based on a patch by Eduard Braun.
- Fixed bgo#710163 - use _wfullpath() on Windows when canonicalizing
  filenames.  Patch by LRN.

The fix for bgo#605875 should be of special interest to Wikimedia, since
apparently Wikipedia has run into trouble with SVG graphics with
Gaussian blurs not getting rendered correctly.

You can get your fix(es) here:

The GNOME Project is proud to announce the release of GNOME 3.16.

This is another exciting release for GNOME, and brings many new features
and improvements, including redesigned notifications, a new shell
theme, new scrollbars, and a refresh for the file manager. 3.16 also
includes improvements to the Image Viewer, Music, Photos and Videos.
We are also including three new preview apps for the first time: Books,
Calendar and Characters.

The login screen is now using Wayland by default.

For more information about the changes in GNOME 3.16, you can visit
the release notes:

 https://help.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.16/

GNOME 3.16 will be available shortly in many distributions. Live images
of GNOME 3.16 are available too.

 https://www.gnome.org/getting-gnome/
 https://download.gnome.org/misc/promo-usb/gnome-3.16.iso

These images are based on openSUSE.

To try the very latest developments in GNOME, you can also use the
VM disk images that are produced by the gnome-continuous build system.

GNOME 3.16.0 newstable tarballs due (and more)

Hello all,

We would like to inform you about the following:
* GNOME 3.16.0 newstable tarballs due
* Hard Code Freeze ends

Tarballs are due on 2015-03-23 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.16.0
newstable 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 3.16.0. 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!

Hard Code Freeze ends, but other freezes remain in effect for the
stable branch.

For more information about 3.15, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.15
page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

We remind you we are string frozen, no string changes may be made
without confirmation from the l10n team (gnome-i18n <at> ) and notification
to both the release team and the GNOME Documentation Project
(gnome-doc-list <at> ).

Hard code freeze is also in place, no source code changes can be made
without approval from the release-team.  Translation and documentation
can continue.

Proposal to make GnomeLove official and move it to developer.gnome.org

Hi,

So after some work in GnomeLove and discussions in the gnome-love list, I would like to make this proposal.
Read more here https://wiki.gnome.org/CarlosSoriano/GnomeLoveMoveTask

So I would want to have feedback on this idea over this week, since I will take a intern from OPW for it, and the deadline
is next Monday.

What do you think? =)
Hope you like the idea.

Cheers,
Carlos Soriano

Another look at GNOME 3.16 blocker bugs

On the eve of the 3.15.92 release (which comes with the hard code
freeze), here is another look at whats left on the blocker bug list
for 3.16. Thanks for all the fixes - the blocker list has been
shrinking!

As a reminder, this list is only comprised of what the release team
noticed go by in bugzilla and deemed blocker-worthy and is not meant
to be exclusive. If you have other bugs or patches that you really
want to see in 3.16.0, don't hesitate to send freeze break requests
for them.

mutter

745335 Can't close non-csd windows (such as gnome-terminal) with touch

This one has a patch.

GNOME 3.15.92 rc tarballs due (and more)

Hello all,

We would like to inform you about the following:
* GNOME 3.15.92 rc tarballs due
* Hard Code Freeze

Tarballs are due on 2015-03-16 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.15.92
rc 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 3.15.92. 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!

This is a late freeze to avoids sudden last-minute accidents which
could risk the stability that should have been reached at this point.
No source code changes are allowed without approval from the release
team, but translation and documentation should continue. Simple build
fixes are, of course, allowed without asking.

[suggestion] Dash to dock, Workspace to Dock and more

Greetings,

Both extensions Dash to Dock and Workspace to Dock brings more useful
functionality in Gnome Shell such as autohide and ability to move the
direction the users desire. Will it be possible to include them on the
next Gnome release?

Gnome-tweak-tool seems to be one of requested features for customizing
the shell, it will be nice to include in control center as advanced
settings similar to Apple OS X Yosemite.

On Gnome-Control-center, some settings like Network mismatch the current
HIG look, it would be great to update them.

Possible data loss with Tracker 1.3.x

Hey,

Tracker 1.3.2 and 1.3.3 had a bug that made them fail to start:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=743727

However, after 1.3.4 fixed that problem, we caught a bug in the 
database migration code added earlier that didn't get uncovered until 
now.

Please refrain from using Tracker 1.3 if previous installations had 
Tracker 1.2 or earlier installed, as it will corrupt the database 
beyond repair:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=745737

Cheers
