As I've had a few new followers, by way of #introduction:
- I'm a free and open source software developer
- I contribute to #gnome, typically in the core platform libraries
- I mostly toot about my History of the GNOME project podcast (every week, on Thursday) and about my #gundam plastic models
- I try to keep my software development ranting to the bird site, but it may end up spilling over here
GTK is at the heart of the GNOME application and software development kit. Learn more about what your support has helped the GTK team accomplish in 2020 and where we’re headed for 2021! https://www.gnome.org/news/2020/11/gtk-at-the-heart-of-gnome/
We want GNOME to be usable for everyone! In this post, Matthias dives into accessibility implementations throughout GTK (the foundational framework for GNOME UI), and updates coming with GTK4.
I’ve ported my (WIP) Fedi client to GTK4!
If you want another look at the porting process, see here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/Social/-/merge_requests/32
We're in love with this GUADEC 2020 group collage! Thanks to all our #GUADEC attendees for sending photos and to Jonathan Blandford for his masterful collage work.
Check out the full-size image for a closer look at all the photos included: https://static.gnome.org/guadec-2020/group-photo.png
FOSS boys: phew I finally got my emails working on my phone, it took me a week, involved a soldering iron, and I had to write a patch for a library
Also FOSS boys: people choose the convenience of Apple/Google/Microsoft because they're lazy and stupid, anybody can switch to Arch and PostmarketOS and self-host everything
We're excited to announce the official release of GNOME 3.38 "Orbis"! After months of work from the GNOME Community, this release brings many new features and improvements. It also brings us a new release video!
Now that #gnome 3.38 is out of the door, here's something to make the Internets explode: https://discourse.gnome.org/t/new-gnome-versioning-scheme/4235
general PSA, not about anything specific:
you don't have to sit and "listen" to everyone online. they are not entitled to your attention. blocking someone on the internet is not telling them to shut up. blocking someone is not censoring them. it is getting up and walking away and you are allowed to do that.
We're about to start day 2 of #GUADEC. Take a look at the schedule to see what talks are coming up: https://events.gnome.org/event/1/timetable/#20200723
#GUADEC has officially started. Check out today's schedule to plan out your day. And remember, Track 1 talks are shown in the left column, Track 2 in the right. https://events.gnome.org/event/1/timetable/#20200722
#GUADEC 2020 starts tomorrow, are you ready? Here's our checklist: registration✔️, view the schedule✔️, grab track links and access codes (check your email!)✔️, sign up for social hour✔️. Still need to check some of these off? Find all event details: https://events.gnome.org/event/1/https://events.gnome.org/event/1/
We also have changes planned to AT-SPI, to make it more efficient and work better, and more securely, in sandboxed environments.
The new #a11y API for #GTK 4 is taking shape in GitLab: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/merge_requests/2239
The new implementation drops the old abstraction layer called ATK, and it's heavily modelled on WAI-ARIA; on Linux, it will talk to ATs using AT-SPI, and on other platforms it will use their native API.
Let's say this one more time together, #blacklivesmatter
