🎮 libmanette 0.2.6 released! 🎉

It mosly is an in-depth code cleanup, but hey, who doesn't like clean code‽ 😄


@bilelmoussaoui has been doing incredible, awesome work not only on gtk-rs but for GNOME in general. We owe him several cool applications, and at least in part the ability to write GTK applications in Rust.

If you can support him, even by just buying him a coffe, please do!

Thanks for all the invisible work behind the scenes Bilal

I have been working a lot lately on gtk4 rust bindings (with over than 180 commits in the last 2 months). There are still a lot of things to be done if we want the bindings to be in a very good shape (they are very usable though) by the release of gtk4.

If you would like to support the work I do to improve the Rust & GNOME <3, you can do so on liberapay.com/bielmoussaoui

James has been contributing to several GNOME apps, but he loves GNOME Maps! Read about his last contributions and what he plans to work on:

#phosh 0.6.0 is out 🚀 : source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-

Besides more fixes for docked mode, the most visible change is @exalm 's work to close apps by swiping up. This needs #libhandy 1.0.2.

#librem5 @purism #gnomeonmobile

RetroGTK — the Libretro
frontend framework for GTK
— has a new website: gnome.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/r

Nothing fancy, but at least we have a central point for anything related to the library. 😄

If you’re interested in writing a GTK app or want to contribute, I have one bit of advice I highly recommend: Don’t use Glade. It’s usually wrong, and will make more work for you in the future. Especially if you plan to port to GTK4.

UI files are great, but if you want to use them write and edit the XML by hand. Glade is not your friend.

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.

Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?

🔄 boosts welcome

Almost did a release on Fri, 12 Nov 2020. I wonder how many people would have noticed if it wasn't fixed.

⬆️⬇️⬆️⬇️🔫🔫🔫, @GNOME Games gained Dreamcast support! 🎉️ It is powered by the Flycast Libretro core and it supports both the .gdi and .cdi formats. 😄️

You will be able to use it in the next stable version to be released in March 2021.

- I've shot myself in the foot and my foot doesn't work anymore
- Why would you shoot in your foot?
- Have you seen feet, it boggles me that you don't want that, there are other reasons which you cannot comprehend, you're implying i didnt deserve freedom


(topic changed to protect the guilty)

And this approach doesn't work anyway, it will have to be on web process side if it's gonna ever handle scrolling correctly.

Dialect is a cool new translation app available on Flathub and running on the Librem 5. 😄️


I'm way more excited about GTK4 expressions than I should be. So many things that required code before can be done through UI files now.
