GNOME 3.9.5 Development Release

GNOMEtters & GNOMErs,

the latest development update before our planned freezes and beta
release for GNOME 3.1o is finally available.

I know, better and bigger things are now happening in Brno, but allow
me to introduce you one or two changes.
This is the first release including GStreamer 1.1 with feature
additions for the API and ABI of our favourite multimedia framework.
We have an updated geolocalization framework, with a rewritten
geocode-glib and the initial release of geoclue2 too. This means...
Yes, GNOME Maps is finally available for your pleasure and testing.
Other noticeable changes include support to RFKill for Linux systems,
no more password prompt for Google calendars, redesign for Universal
Access panel in System Settings and the ability for all your mortal
beings to win a GNOME chess game ;-)

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.9.4

Hello all,

Tarballs were due on 2013-07-08 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.9.4
unstable release. Yeah, that was yesterday, I'd suggest you subscribe
to the release schedule we publish as iCal.

  https://www.gnome.org/start/unstable/schedule.ics

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 3.9.4. 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 3.9, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.9
page:

ANNOUNCE: New mailing list for Infrastructure-related announcements

Hi,

lately I've been thinking about what could be the best way to announce Infrastructure-related maintenances, downtimes, outages. As of now I kept sending my mails to multiple mailing lists at once (foundation-list, desktop-devel-list, devel-announce-list) but I feel that wasn't the best way to achieve my goal.

As of today, a new mailing list exists for these kind of announces [1], someone could argue that this is yet-another-mailing-list but I'm completely sure that having a specific and targeted mailing list will definitely help everyone out. The improvements:

1. subscribing to the new list will make sure that you don't lose any maintenance, downtime, outage announcement
2. you can track when a specific maintenance will happen or has happened in the past and what was done.
3. the GNOME Sysadmin team has finally a place to send its announcements to making sure they reach the wider audience as possible.

Have an awesome day and please take a little minute to subscribe to the new list.
