GSettings and you


with the GLib 2.25.1 and GConf 2.31.1 releases that I've made
yesterday, the results of last weeks GSettings hackfest are now

Some pieces of the puzzle are still missing:

 - Dconf is still being worked on

 - Support for lists of settings (like a lists of accounts, or
/desktop/gnome/url-handlers) is not there yet

 - The handling of enums is not very convenient yet

But we have more than enough in place now to let you start porting applications:

- Several fully functional backends

 - API documentation:

 - Man pages:

 - A porting guide:

 - An example:

Playing around with what we have now would be very helpful for
discovering the (undoubtedly existing) oversights and omissions in the
GSettings API. We recommend to use the GConf backend (see the

GNOME 2.30.1 stable tarballs due

Hello all,

Tarballs are due on 2010-04-26 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 2.30.1
stable 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 2.30.1. 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 2.31, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 2.31

Translation Project structure change

Dear GNOMErs,

The GNOME Translation Project (aka gnome-i18n) would like to inform you
about some changes recently made in the project structure.

The SpokesPerson status (two leading members) have been obsoleted in
favour of a larger Coordination Team.

For string freeze break requests, you now always need two approvals from
the Coordination Team. We'll also try to improve the responsiveness
about requests.

Thanks for keeping GNOME rocking!

Claude Paroz
