Sugar 0.110 Release Cycle

Hi All,


I will be doing the release management for the 0.110 cycle.  Please see the timeline [1]. I would appreciate any comments on the timeline.

I've also setup a COPR for sugar, which I hope to maintain throughout this cycle. Are there any other packaging services that we should have to push testing releases to? Is there a service for automatic building of live SoaS images? XO images? Let's make this the most tested sugar release ever!

Thanks,
Sam

[SLOB] meeting reminder (note time change)

After consulting with the members of the Sugar Labs oversight board, we have agreed to move the regular meeting times to 19:00 UTC on the first Friday of each month. (The 16:00 UTC time was conflicting with the work schedule of several board members.) Ergo, the next meeting is Friday, 3 June 2016 at 19:00UTC (See the timer link [1] below.) Please join us at irc.freenode.net #sugar-meeting The meeting agenda can be found in the wiki [2]).

regards.

Today's Work
  1. Normalized the glyph drawing code
  2. Made a renderGlyph Class for drawing the glyph inside a specified box size
  3. Made a glyphGridInstance Class for drawing a grid of glyph from a given list 
code available here 
screenshot is here 

Great progress from yesterday! :D
 
Tomorrow's target 
  1. Make a complete class for the character View
  2. make buttons on the side of the grid that allows the user to see all of the characters or make a scrollable grid view

Sounds good!
 
Questions 
  1. <at> Dave what should we use buttons on either side of the grid or a scrollable grid view for the character map
Lets start with "pagination" buttons that shift the whole grid when clicked, and then look into scrolling it :) 

I would expect that there are GTK class methods for both of these already... :)

I suggest looking for activities that do what you want and checking out their source code :) https://sugarlabs.github.io/edit-fonts-activity/screenshots-of-other-activities

I wasn't able to normalise my glyph rendering code so I used Eli's example ;)

[DESIGN] Instant palette popdown - a usability improvement

Hi All,

A while ago, I dropped a mention on the list to how many users found the palette system confusing, at least in my usability testing experiment.

I recently wrote this up, with a more detailed rational;  https://www.sam.today/blog/sugar-with-instant-palettes/

I invite you to comment on this.  This could be an interesting change for sugar (0.)110.

Thanks,
Sam

GSOC Day 3

Hello Abhijit,


How is it going?

Did you fix up the icon for the project view?

Did you fix up the keyboard input handling?

Thanks,
Sam

Have a laptop you can spare?

Hello Sugar community,

Recently, in a rainforesty thunderstorm, we had a power surge that
damaged a few items, including my Laptop. In addition, our classmate and
XO laptops are suffering some kind of humidity-related keyboard problem
that we haven't been able to resolve, so we're working out of our kid's
laptops with external keyboards.

It would be really helpful if you had a spare laptop (old is fine) that
you could destine to us.

Peruvian customs is problematic for shipping gadgets but currently a
close relative is visiting family in Florida, USA.

Please write to us, we can take care of shipping if it's convenient for
you. :-)

Thanks in advance,

Sebastian
