GNOME 3.0 Rescheduled for September 2011 Release

GNOME Friends,

The release team met this week at the Bangalore hackfest, and after much
discussion, took the decision that it is in our best interest to delay
3.0 to September. We had a call with the Board to explain the
motivations, and the Board fully supports this decision.

This was obviously not an easy decision to take, but several factors
lead to this delay:

   - the number of freeze break requests
   - some modules seeing merge of branches with more than 10000 lines of
     changes
   - the constant changes in the design
   - a platform that is moving in new directions (with GTK+ 4 coming
     soon, for example)

To keep the focus on 3.0, we are not proposing to release GNOME 2.34
next week. However, a new module proposals period will open for 3.0, and
we are committed to carefully consider the forthcoming proposals,
including alternate desktop shells.

You can read the full press release about this:
  http://www.gnome.org/press/releases/2011-04-gnome-3.0-rescheduled.html

Thanks,

Vincent

TARBALLS DUE (before Monday 23:59 UTC!, don't forget translators!): GNOME 3.0.0 Final Release

Woo!

Thank you! I really want to start with that: everybody in the community
has been working hard for 3.0, and this makes a big difference. Of
course, there have been various difficulties, and the recent hardware
failure on servers did not help; but we were able to all go beyond that
and we are now about to write an important line in the history of our
project. So thank to everyone in the community for accepting to deal
with a difficult release cycle; be sure that now that we are entering
our 3.x life, we will go back to "quieter" cycles.

And of course, do not forget to take a break next week to celebrate
GNOME 3.0!

We encourage everyone to help with the smoketesting effort. We will
publish jhbuild modulesets on Tuesday at:
    http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.0.0/

If you find a bug that you believe might be a blocker, please send a
mail to the release team.

Tarballs are due on Monday April 4th before 23:59 UTC for our first
GNOME 3 release ever, GNOME 3.0.0, which will be released to the world
on Wednesday April 6th.

As a word of warning, there is absolutely no guarantee that your tarball
will be taken if you release after Monday. But the good news is that we
can help you release one if needed! Just ask the release team.

blogs.gnome.org: Wordpress 3.1, new IP address

Christer Edwards upgraded blogs.gnome.org to Wordpress 3.1. He also
moved it from window to a VM on combobox (209.132.180.177). Might take a
while before you notice due to DNS.

If you want to use blogs.gnome.org NOW, put the following in /etc/hosts:
  209.132.180.177 blogs.gnome.org

We don't pop up non-urgent notifications when the user is Busy, but rather just add them to the message tray
summary. If the user has not seen these notifications by looking at them in the summary or by switching to
the application, the notifications will pop up later when the user changes the status back to Available.

Here is the bug that discusses how sharing the status with Empathy got implemented:

We should totally be able to get both of these into a good shape for
3.2.

I've started a wiki page for the whole "Document-centric Gnome" project:
http://live.gnome.org/DocumentCentricGnome

A super-quick summary of the current status of things:

- The 'zeitgeist' branch in gnome-shell is in git.gnome.org.  It makes
gnome-shell use Zeitgeist instead of GtkRecent* when you do a search.
It has embryonic support for jumplists, as it shows you recently- and
frequently-used files relative to an application when you bring up that
app's right-click menu.

- The 'journal' branch for gnome-shell is in gitorious (URL in the wiki
page).  It's not usable yet.  It displays a journal-like timeline of
what got logged in Zeitgeist - files you visited, web sites, etc.  It's

Doesn't MeeGo have something like this already?  We should try to
resurrect some code from there...

No, they have an interface to setup libsocialweb accounts (called
Bisho). It doesn't help you create a single "Google" account (chat,
calendar, mail) for example.

I see chat, but I don't see twitter for some reason in the current setup.  Gwibber is our only answer correct for a twitter client?

Additional work that could be done for a document centric GNOME:

1. Integrate tracker-preferences as a control panel applet, maybe with
   some basic monitoring (index up to date/indexing files, time
   remaining)
2. Pursue work on Tracker/Shell integration (basic version proposed in
   https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=645326 ). As proposed by
   Martyn, Tracker could also be used for application search (less code
   for the same features since we'd remove the current application
   search).
