TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.12.1

Hello all,

Isn't running 3.12 sweet?  Did you see the comments?  Christian
Schaller collected some, full of superlatives, have a look:
http://blogs.gnome.org/uraeus/2014/04/02/gnome-3-12-release-comments/

But it doesn't end there, the new step is the 3.12.1 update release,
and we need tarballs on Monday:

  Tarballs are due on 2014-04-14 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.12.1
  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 3.12.1. 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!

For more information about 3.11, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.11

The GUADEC 2014 Call for Presentations is now open

# GUADEC 2014 Call for Presentations

GUADEC is the annual conference of the GNOME community, held in Europe
since 2000. GNOME is a free software project which drives user
interfaces of many GNU/Linux-powered devices, ranging from smartphones
to laptops and personal media centers. GUADEC is the world's largest
gathering of users and developers who are involved with the free
desktop and mobile user interfaces. GUADEC is expected to draw
hundreds of attendees who will discuss and direct the future of the
GNOME project. Developers, artists, translators, users, and
representatives from government, education, and businesses, and anyone
else who shares an interest are welcome.

GUADEC 2014 will be held in Strasbourg, France. The conference will be
held between July 26th and August 1st; the first four days are the
core conference days, and afterwards there'll
be extra days for hackfests and BoF sessions.

The schedule of the conference mirrors the ongoing development of the
GNOME project:

  * Design of the core user experience (core applications, shell, tool kit)
  * Design of the developer experience (tools, documentation, services)
  * Integration and extension of the operating system plumbings into the core UX
  * Application development and deployment
  * Integration of web technologies into the GNOME user experience
  * Improving the user experience on different form factors
  * Improvide the documentation of the user experience and the applications
  * Outreach to new contributors
  * Organization and governance of the project

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.12.0

Hello all,

With 3.11.92 out, it's time for 3.12.0 tarballs. Let the translations
flow into your modules then get your tarballs out.

Tarballs are due on 2014-03-24 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.12.0
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 3.12.0. 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!

GNOME 3.11.92 Release Candidate!

Hello all,

A bit late on the schedule as we were waiting for some extra tarballs
(we recommend using a git snapshot of cogl at the moment), but here it
is at last, a GNOME release candidate for you to test, and your chance
to make 3.12 the best it can get.

  Have fun downloading, building and testing it.

To compile GNOME 3.11.92, 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/
  https://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.11.92/

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.

More details about changes and news for this beta are available here:

   core: https://download.gnome.org/core/3.11/3.11.92/NEWS
   apps: https://download.gnome.org/apps/3.11/3.11.92/NEWS

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.11.92 release candidate + HARD CODE FREEZE

Hey all,

Here comes the 3.11.92 release candidate, last stop before 3.12.
Tarballs are expected on Monday, this is the last chance to get your
fixes in, we will then enter the hard code freeze, and you will need a
big bunch of approvals to get changes in.

Let's repeat, tarballs are due on 2014-03-17 before 23:59 UTC for the
GNOME 3.11.92 rc release, which will be delivered on Wednesday.
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 3.11.92.

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!

We will be entering the HARD CODE FREEZE: 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.

module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.11

Hi,

the first beta release of the GNOME 3.11 development cycle is here!

release team and notification to gnome-doc-list gnome org
- Feature Freeze: new functionality is implemented now, for exceptions
please again consult the release team
- API/ABI Freeze: Developer APIs should be frozen at this point;
- String Change Announcement Period: All string changes should be
announced to both gnome-i18n gnome org and gnome-doc-list gnome org

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.11.90, The Freeze, and other things

Hello all,

We are now at 3.11.90, you should publish your tarball on Monday, so
that the release team and friends get enough time to assemble and test
it all.

Also we are reaching "The Freeze", API/ABI changes, UI changes, and
new features should now be well in place and stop moving, details are
available in the wiki[1], and of course you can reach the release
team, by mail or on IRC, if you have questions.

  [1] https://wiki.gnome.org/ReleasePlanning/Freezes#The_Freeze

Another thing, we will be entering the string change announcement
period, e.g.  string changes can still be made (e.g. for typo fixes or
translatability improvements). All string changes must be announced to
both gnome-i18n <at>  and gnome-doc-list <at> .

Writing of release notes will begin and there will most likely be a
call for help, we are counting on you.

  Tarballs are due on 2014-02-17 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME
  3.11.90 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 3.11.90. 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

GNOME 3.11.5

The fifth release of the GNOME 3.12 development cycle is here. See [1] for the new features that have been proposed for this cycle. See [2] for some visual impressions of GNOME 3.11.5.

To compile this release, you can use the jhbuild [3] modulesets [4] (which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

[1] https://wiki.gnome.org/ThreePointEleven/Features/
[2] http://blogs.gnome.org/mclasen/2014/02/06/a-quick-glance-at-gnome-3-11-5/
[3] http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
[4] http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.11.5/

The release notes that describe the changes between 3.11.4 and 3.11.5 are available. Go read them to learn what's new in this release:

core - http://download.gnome.org/core/3.11/3.11.5/NEWS
apps - http://download.gnome.org/apps/3.11/3.11.5/NEWS

The GNOME 3.11.5 release itself is available here:

core sources - http://download.gnome.org/core/3.11/3.11.5
apps sources - http://download.gnome.org/apps/3.11/3.11.5


WARNING!
------------------

GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development.

This release is a snapshot of ongoing development, and you should expect a few hickups when trying to build it. A few I noticed include:
- The gnome-control-center network panel team support requires unreleased NetworkManager APIs
- telepathy-mission-control does not build against upower 1.0. Use the --disable-upower configure option for now
- libpeas does not build with js24

But don't let these stop you from testing and reporting the issues you find.


The next release, 3.11.90 is scheduled for February 17, and will mark the being of our freeze period.
