Another Shell update from the GNOME Shell & Mutter blog gets into UX changes in the works for GNOME 40. Read the whole article here: blogs.gnome.org/shell-dev/2021

A new major version of Authenticator, powered by Rust, GTK4 & GStreamer/ZBar is on Flathub! It has all you could need for 2-Factor-Authentication from QR code scanning to custom providers support like Steam.

Grab it while hot

I just noticed that there are actually a lot of developers using my Flatpak Github Action.
If you are writing a desktop application, hosted on Github and want to make testing your latest changes easier for the users you should definitely check out


I just published the first release of Decoder on Flathub ! It's a fancy toy app for scanning and generating QR codes.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! As we look forward to a brighter 2021, Executive Director Neil McGovern reminds us of all the wonderful things we accomplished together in this very unique year. gnome.org/news/2020/12/looking

I wrote a pretty dumb qr code generator while playing with Gtk 4's Paintable API, pretty fancy stuff

So I started porting my apps to GTK 4 and the first one is Authenticator. On the menu: GTK4 of course, a ton of new features & complete rewrite in Rust
The source code is available at gitlab.gnome.org/World/Authent

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

If you’re interested in gtk-rs, I just landed initial support for composite templates in gtk4-rs!


If you want to see how to use it, take a look at the example here:


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

Fedora 33 with GNOME 3.38 is here! Congratulations to our friends at on the release.
