gThumb 2.11.x Removed From Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx; Latest Version Adds Facebook Export

,----[ Quote ]
| This is a big hit to gThumb which adds a lot 
| of amazing features in the latest 2.11.x 
| series, such as Flickr and Picasaweb export 
| support. Even more, the latest GIT build also 
| includes a new extension to export photos to 
| Facebook.


Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx beta 2 - it's pretty snappy on the desktop

| I've been writing about such cockle-warming 
| subjects as how Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx beta 
| 2 and its 2.6.32 kernel handles such things 
| as turning off kernel mode setting for Intel 
| video that can't deal with said mode-setting, 
| as well as the ever-moving buttons on 
| application windows, and how the new gthumb 
| is the best damn Linux/Unix photo-editing 
| program for journalists.


They will hopefully drop F-Spot. Mono ought to go.

A Deep Divide



Is The New gThumb A Potential F-Spot Killer?


GIMP to go Mono to stay?


Mono sinks its claws into Fedora

| The project has been dogged by controversy
| because many people reason that, as many
| parts of .NET have not been released to
| ECMA, a private standards organisation,
| implementing those parts may lead to patent
| problems down the line.
| In June this year, the Fedora project
| announced that it had decided to get rid of
| Tomboy, a note-taking application dependent
| on Mono and replace it with Gnote, a port
| of Tomboy in C++/Gtkmm released by former
| Novell developer Hubert Figuiere.
| Earlier this year, when Microsoft made what
| appeared to be a promise not to sue those
| who implemented the ECMA-covered parts of
| .NET, de Icaza admitted that he had been
| developing parts of .NET which were not
| covered by the specification, even though
| he had been developing Mono for nearly
| eight years.
