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.

GNOME 3.7.1

Hey,

GNOME 3.7 development is getting underway, with the 3.7.1 snapshot
that is marking the beginning of this development cycle. Features are
still being proposed and discussed [1]. This release allows some early
glimpses of whats to come [2].

To compile GNOME 3.7.1, 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 3.7.1 does not build against
network-manager-gnome 0.9.6.2 - see [5] for details and a patch.

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.

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.6.1

Hello all,

3.6.0 has been out for two and a half weeks now, and it's time to
publish a first update and offer our users a nice dose of bug fixes
and translation updates.

Tarballs are due on 2012-10-15 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.6.1
stable 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 3.6.1. 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 3.7, 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

3.7 development

Hi,

3.6 is out - congratulations !
The hard code freeze is now lifted, you can get the bug fixes in that
you've queued up for 3.6.1. Now is also a good time to make plans for
3.7, describe your ideas in feature pages, and dive into new
development. The schedule for 3.7 is up here:
https://live.gnome.org/ThreePointSeven. But please create gnome-3.6
branches first, so we keep strings and UI stable for 3.6.1.

GNOME 3.6 released

                    GNOME 3.6 Released
                 ====================

Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME 3.6, the
latest version of the popular free desktop, as well as the GNOME
developer platform.

GNOME 3.6 is the third major update of GNOME 3. It builds on the
foundations that we have laid with the previous 3.x releases and
offers a greatly enhanced experience. The exciting new features and
improvements in this release include a new login experience,
integrated input methods, a refresh of the message tray, support for
more online accounts, improved accessibility, and many more.

For more information about the major changes in GNOME 3.6, please
visit our release notes:

 http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.6/

GNOME 3.6 will be available shortly in many distributions. Live images
of GNOME 3.6 are currently being prepared and will appear soon at:

 http://www.gnome.org/getting-gnome/

This six months effort wouldn't have been possible without the whole
GNOME community, made of contributors and friends from all around the
world: developers, designers, documentors, usability and accessibility
specialists, translators, maintainers, sysadmins, companies, artists,
testers and last, not least, users. GNOME would not exist without all
those people.

Thanks very much to every one of them!

Our next release, GNOME 3.8, is planned for March 2013.

Until then, enjoy GNOME 3.6 !

Hello all,

It's the last step, it's the release candidate, it's 3.5.92 time!

So, what are you waiting for? Download it! Build it! Test it!

The more you are, the best we can make GNOME 3.6.

To compile GNOME 3.5.92, you can use the jhbuild [1] modulesets
published by the release team [2] (which use the exact tarball
versions from the official release).

 [1] http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
 [2] http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.5.92/

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.

The release notes that describe the changes between 3.5.91 and 3.5.92
are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this release:

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.5.92 release candidate + HARD CODE FREEZE

Hey,

How fast it came, coming Monday will already be the time to roll
3.5.92 tarballs of your modules, and that will be the last chance to
get your fixes in, after that: hard code freeze, e.g. you will have
to require a big bunch of approvals to get changes in.

Let's repeat:

Tarballs are due on 2012-09-17 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.5.92 rc
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 3.5.92.  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.

For more information about 3.5, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.5
page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable
