#154 Pride Day!

Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from June 21 to June 28.

GNOME Core Apps and Libraries

Libadwaita

Building blocks for modern GNOME apps using GTK4.

Alice (she/her) reports

as a last minute change before libadwaita 1.6.alpha, we landed a new alert/message dialog style/layout. It covers AdwAlertDialog, AdwMessageDialog (minus a few features) and even GtkMessageDialog/GtkAlertDialog (as best as it can). It’s now using standard button styles, fixing the long-standing issue where suggested and destructive buttons would look the same when using red accent color, and generally refreshing the look

GNOME Shell

Core system user interface for things like launching apps, switching windows, system search, and more.

Bilal Elmoussaoui says

After various necessary cleanups in both Mutter and GNOME Shell, you can finally build Mutter as a Wayland-only compositor. GNOME Shell will automatically detect at build time whether Mutter was built with or without X11, with or without Xwayland and adapt to that.

GNOME Circle Apps and Libraries

Apostrophe

A distraction free Markdown editor.

Manu (he/they/she) says

Today is the international LGBTIQA+ pride day. As a queer person myself I wanted to celebrate, especially in a moment where our rights are questioned more and more. It’s available now on Flathub a new release of Apostrophe, with some small fixes and updated translations, but first and foremost new pride styles for the save animation. Thanks to Fina Wilke for the original implementation! Check Apostrophe on Flathub and, if you like it, donate to your favorite local queer association 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️

d-k-bo says

Televido 0.4.0 is available on Flathub.

Televido is an app to access German-language public broadcasting live streams and archives based on APIs provided by the MediathekView project.

As a major change in version 0.4.0, the mediathek search field now uses MediathekViewWeb’s advanced search syntax. Additionally, support for removing and reordering live channels and an option to copy the subtitles URL have been added.

Izzy (she/they) reports

Binary 0.3 is officially out!

New features and improvements include:

  • Conversions to and from octal (base 8) numbers

Caroline Henriksen reports

GUADEC 2024 is only a few weeks away! Make sure to let us know how you’re attending by registering.

Remote Registration

If you plan to attend from home or at a satellite event such as in Berlin, please remember to register as a remote participant at https://events.gnome.org/event/209/registrations/181/. Knowing who participates in GUADEC (and where they take part) helps us make events as relevant and engaging as possible, and helps explain the reach and impact of our events to sponsors. Knowing how many remote participants we have also helps us continue to make our events accessible with a lower carbon footprint by justifying costs such as AV Teams and live streaming.

In-Person Registration

If you are joining us in Denver, Colorado make sure to register as an in-person attendee at https://events.gnome.org/event/209/registrations/177/. Signing up ahead of the conference helps ensure you receive all the important updates and information we email to registered participants. It also allows us to print your conference badge in time for early pick up at our July 18th pre-registration party!

That’s all for this week!

See you next week, and be sure to stop by #thisweek:gnome.org with updates on your own projects!

That screenshot for the new message dialog… I don’t know what font it is, but look very good on that images!

It’s Inter, the potential new default font of GNOME.
