Gnome 3 Will Be Amazing

,----[ Quote ]
| I am excited. I am really, really excited. 
| This should scare you. It scares me. But I 
| hope youâll bear with us; and by bear I mean 
| âhelp us carry the loadâ. Help us make this 
| real! Help us refine the bad parts! Help us 
| eliminate the bad sub-designs! Help us shoot 
| flames from our eyes and launch dragons from 
| our missile tubes. Help us break granite 
| with our faces. Descend with us, little 
| lambs, into the labyrinth of chasomagic.

GNOME 2.29.91 Beta Available


GNOME Shell 2.29.0 with new notification system

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 2.29.0 of the GNOME Shell is now 
| available for testing. The developers have 
| integrated a new notification system into 
| this version. An information bar at the 
| bottom edge of the screen informs users, for 
| instance, about newly connected devices or 
| about which track the audio player has just 
| changed to. Previous notifications are saved 
| and can be accessed via an info icon in the 
| bottom right corner of the screen.



Gnome-Shell, I changed my mind

,----[ Quote ]
| What is nice about the gnome-shell concept,
| is the use of virtual desktops, I know they
| have always been there, but it makes it a
| natural intuitive task. Switching
| applications from one desktop to the other
| is a pleasure, that makes it easy to
| configure your desktops the way you want it
| quickly...


Gnome 3 Usability Hackfest

,----[ Quote ]
| As the GNOME 3.0 approaches, the GNOME
| Community is going to hold a Usability
| Hackfest in London from feb 22-26. Those
| who are not aware about the usability
| project, it aims to make GNOME appearance
| more efficient and pleasant to the users.
| In this hackfest, they are planning to work
| and improve the design and usability of
| some new GNOME 3.0 components.


GNOME Revamps and Renews Outreach Program for Women

,----[ Quote ]
| The approach? Think Google Summer of Code --
| complete with internships, mentors, and
| sponsors -- with an emphasis on team
| contributions rather than stand-alone
| projects.
| GNOME ran a similar outreach program in
| 2006, and received one hundred applications
| within two weeks. Because funds are (always)
| limited, great projects (and talent) had to
| be turned away -- but Google was so was
| impressed by the proposals, it funded three
| additional projects. The 2006 Women's
| Outreach Program had six participants, but
| organizers are tentatively planning on five
| participants this season.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
