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
It's going to be a long term job—especially because there aren't many people left in this area—so if you care about this, please consider donating to the @gnome Foundation who pays me to work on #GTK.

Ouch, forgot about Mastodon. New (side) episode of the History of #gnome podcast went up on Monday: https://www.bassi.io/articles/2019/02/24/history-of-gnome-episode-2-a/
A bit late, but here's episode 2.2 of the History of #gnome: "Release Day" — https://www.bassi.io/articles/2019/02/14/history-of-gnome-episode-2-2/
I updated episode 2.1 of the History or #gnome podcast with a version that doesn’t make your ears bleed: https://www.bassi.io/articles/2019/01/24/history-of-gnome-episode-2-1/ - the gods of recording audio in a hotel room were kind to me
The #GNOME design team wants your feedback for a potential visual refresh of the #GTK default theme: https://blog.gtk.org/2019/01/14/theme-changes-in-gtk-3/ — if you have an application that ships custom CSS, testing is appreciated!
Finally, a day late, the last side episode of the first chapter of the History of #GNOME — https://www.bassi.io/articles/2018/12/14/history-of-gnome-episode-1-c/
Sorry for the lateness, hopefully it won't happen again.
New side episode for the History of #GNOME podcast: this is a short one, about how language bindings for #GTK were made, back in the 1.x days — https://www.bassi.io/articles/2018/12/06/history-of-gnome-episode-1-b/
So, I guess the cat's out of the bag: I'm going to work on the #gnome platform libraries, thanks to the Foundation
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
Today is my birthday, so you're getting the last main narrative episode of chapter one of the History of #gnome a bit earlier: https://www.bassi.io/articles/2018/11/22/history-of-gnome-episode-1-5/
