TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.7.5

Hello all,

Many of us were at FOSDEM and we failed to send the announcement
before but you knew it was coming, here's the call for tarballs
for GNOME 3.7.5!

Tarballs are due on 2013-02-04 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.7.5
unstable 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 3.7.5. 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 3.7, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.7
page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

For a quick overview of the GNOME schedule, please see:

Cheers,

        Fred

Hi,

I'll be performing an upgrade of our wiki tomorrow that will take our MoinMoin from version 1.8.8 to the latest stable release 1.9.6.

The wiki will be taken down to prevent any data loss during the upgrade. 

Have an awesome sunday,

GNOME 3.7.4 Development Release

Hello all,

This got delayed by a few days as we were waiting for tarballs but here
is GNOME 3.7.4, it has many new things, if you didn't yet, you should go
and read Planet GNOME, recent posts by Allan Day, Matthias Clasen, and
Cosimo Cecchi all cover improvements that made it in this release.

Still this is a development release and we had to do it while missing
some important tarballs, most importantly we had to do with an older
tracker tarball, and that makes building gnome-boxes, gnome-documents,
and nautilus impossible :/

More details about changes and news are available here:

   core: http://download.gnome.org/core/3.7/3.7.4/NEWS
   apps: http://download.gnome.org/apps/3.7/3.7.4/NEWS

The GNOME 3.7.2 release itself is available here:

   core sources: http://download.gnome.org/core/3.7/3.7.4/
   apps sources: http://download.gnome.org/apps/3.7/3.7.4/

If you want to compile GNOME 3.7.4 by yourself, you can use the
jhbuild modulesets available here:

   http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.7.4/

The next release is 3.7.5 and planned for February 4th, just after
the Developer Experience Hackfest and FOSDEM (don't miss it!).

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

This release is a snapshot of early development code. Although it is
buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking
purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development
status.

For more information about 3.7, the full schedule, the official module
lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colourful 3.7
page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

Happy coding and testing,

GNOME 3.7.3

Hi all.

GNOME 3.7 development is well underway, with the 3.7.3 snapshot
that is marking the third release of this development cycle [1].

To compile GNOME 3.7.3, you can the jhbuild [3] modulesets [4] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official release). A slight
complication is that gnome-control-center 3.7.3 does not build against
network-manager-gnome 0.9.6.4 (you need current master), so the network
panel can not be built.

Fosdem 2013 - Crossdesktop devroom call for talks

Hello,

The Call for Talks for the CrossDesktop DevRoom at FOSDEM 2013 is now officially open. Please do not wait till the last minute!

--8<---

FOSDEM is one of the largest gatherings of Free Software contributors in the world and happens each February in Brussels (Belgium). One of the tracks will be the CrossDesktop DevRoom, which will host Desktop-related talks.


We are now inviting proposals for talks about Free/Libre/Open-source Software on the topics of Desktop development, Desktop applications and interoperativity amongst Desktop Environments. This is a unique opportunity to show novel ideas and developments to a wide technical audience.


Topics accepted include, but are not limited to: Enlightenment, Gnome, KDE, Unity, XFCE, Windows, Mac OS X, general desktop matters, applications that enhance desktops and web (when related to desktop).


Talks can be very specific, such as developing mobile applications with Qt Quick; or as general as predictions for the fusion of Desktop and web in 5 years time. Topics that are of interest to the users and developers of all desktop environments are especially welcome. The FOSDEM 2012 schedule might give you some inspiration:

https://archive.fosdem.org/2012/schedule/track/crossdesktop_devroom.html


Please include the following information when submitting a proposal:


  • Your name

  • The title of your talk (please be descriptive, as titles will be listed with around 250 from other projects)

  • Short abstract of one or two paragraphs

  • Short bio

  • Requested time: from 15 to 45 minutes. Normal duration is 30 minutes. Longer duration requests must be properly justified.


The deadline for submissions is December 14th 2012. FOSDEM will be held on the weekend of 2-3 February 2013. Please submit your proposals to crossdesktop-devroom-RyYwo1q5J+qnN4Z36m+rXQ@public.gmane.org (subscribtion page for the mailing list: https://lists.fosdem.org/listinfo/crossdesktop-devroom )

GNOME goal for 3.8: Python 3

In the last release team meeting we've accepted the Python 3 porting
goal for GNOME 3.8.
https://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/Python3Porting

Meaning: During development phase of GNOME 3.8 (3.7.x) we will depend on
Python 3.

Maintainers/developers: Please visit above URL and assist with the
porting. If as module owner you want to still support Python 2 as well
as Python 3 that is at your discretion.

Distributions: Please check what impacts this has on your tools. Please
notify about impact or required assistance on
desktop-devel-list@... Please assume that all modules will *only*
support Python 3.

Olav
