The GNOME Open Desktop Day

,----[ Quote ]
| With the upcoming release of GNOME 3.0, 
| software development interests will focus 
| increasingly on improved user experience, 
| accessibility and application use. While 
| the GUADEC 2010 conference aims to prmote 
| all of these ideals through the work of 
| the GNOME Foundation, the GNOME Open 
| Desktop Day will place important attention 
| on the desktop in government and 
| education. 


Four Great Gnome Panel Applets

,----[ Quote ]
| Gnome is the most popular Linux desktop 
| environment and one of it's key features 
| that makes it so wonderful is the "gnome 
| panel". For those unfamiliar the "gnome 
| panel" is the bar that is typically 
| located at the bottom (and top sometimes) 
| of the screen where your menu, task-bar, 
| and icon tray are located. If you have 
| never done it, try right clicking on some 
| blank space and click "add to panel". You 
| will be presented with a list of applets 
| you can add to the panel. While there are 
| a good number to choose from by default, 
| there are piles of other applets you can 
| find online to install. The following is a 
| list of my four favorites I use on my 
| various Linux systems around my house.


Mobile, desktop or cloud: Where does the future of open source lie?

,----[ Quote ]
| In the following Q&A, OSCON speaker and 
| GNOME foundation executive director Stormy 
| Peters discusses the risks of cloud 
| computing, the continued importance of 
| desktop computing, and the interesting 
| relationship between new mobile form 
| factors and free software adoption.



GNOME Training confirmed!

,----[ Quote ]
| A few days ago, I took the risk of setting
| off alarm bells on the GNOME developer
| training sessions planned for GUADEC this
| year. It was a risk, and comments from the
| naysayers reminded me that itâs easier to do
| nothing than it is to take a risk. Iâm happy
| to say that the risk paid off.


New module decisions for GNOME 3.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Following some lengthy discussions within
| the GNOME community, release manager
| Vincent Untz has published a summary of the
| new modules to be included in the next
| major release of the GNOME desktop
| environment for Linux and Unix. GNOME 3.0,
| scheduled to arrive in September of this
| year, will not include the GNOME Activity
| Journal, formerly known as GNOME Zeitgeist.
| The Activity Journal allows users to locate
| documents chronologically and supports
| tagging and relationships between groups of
| files. According to Untz, it will not be
| included because it "needs more integration
| with the rest of the desktop and the
| overall GNOME design; right now, it feels
| too much like a stand alone application."


Clutter Advances In-Step With GNOME 3.0

,----[ Quote ]
| With the GNOME 2.31.2 release (an early
| GNOME 3.0 development snapshot) due out
| soon and various GNOME packages being
| checked-in for this milestone, the Clutter
| developers have made available their first
| post-1.2 release. Clutter 1.3 is the
| development series that will lead up to
| the Clutter 1.4 release that's expected to
| be released in tandem with GNOME 3.0. The
| just-released Clutter 1.3.2 release is
| this first step forwards.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
