GNOME 3.14 is out! Congratulations to everyone who worked on this. There's always a lot of hard graft that goes into a GNOME release.
GNOME 3.14, the latest version of GNOME 3, has been released. Announcing the new version, Matthias Clasen said: “This is another exciting release for GNOME, and brings many new features and improve...

YES.
 
Here's a long text on what we are working on in +systemd recently, and are probably going to work on for the next year. It's a great read to start your monday with.

GNOME 3.14 will include a new and updated set of Human Interface Guidelines. From now on, everyone will be able to design their own apps, and I'll spend my time sitting by the pool drinking margaritas.
I've recently been hard at work on a new and updated version of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, and am pleased to announce that this will be ready for the upcoming 3.14 release. Over recent years, application design has evolved a huge amount. The web and native applications have become ...

The second post on application sandboxing for GNOME. This one covers the actual design.

Finished just in time for GUADEC! :)
This is the second of two posts on application sandboxing for GNOME. In my previous post, I wrote about why application sandboxing is important, and the many positive impacts it could have. In this post, I'm going to concentrate on the user experience design of application sandboxing.

The new GNOME release also means that the new GNOME Human Interface Guidelines are officially out. Have a read and tell us what you think!
The GNOME Human Interface Guidelines contain guidance on how to design an effective application using GTK+. The guidelines give access to a complete set of design guidance, from high-level design of your application, through to specific arrangements of user interface elements.

A sneak peek at some of the awesome things that are coming in GNOME 3.14...
I recently put the finishing touches to the GNOME 3.14 release notes, which means that the next GNOME release is getting pretty close now. I never cease to be excited by new GNOME releases, nor to be amazed by our community's ability to discernibly improve the GNOME 3 user experience release on ...

+Carlos Soriano Sánchez a new minor release of program XYZ is out, or maybe I build the latest git version of gtk3/mutter/whatever as a package; package manager removes all files belonging to the old package; then unpacks files belonging to the new package; gnome-shell sees that /usr/share/applications has changed; spends a few moments re-reading ~300 .desktops+icons.

I wouldn't mind staring at a spinner, but when the entire UI hangs it's different.

FPS-wise, though, it's been quite good with the open-source drivers. Latest gjs reduced memory usage as well, so I don't have to wait until the OS loads half of gnome-shell from swap that often anymore.

It's time that we talked about space.
One of the pieces of feedback I often get about GNOME 3 concerns the use of space. People repeatedly say to me that GNOME 3 apps use too much space, particularly in terms of header bars and their buttons. I find these comments about wasted spacing to be perplexing, because they seem contrary to ...

I've talked about space in the past (for the desktop shell itself), hope this helps: http://www.jorgecastro.org/2011/04/20/giving-space-back-to-applications/

GUADEC was awesome, as usual. Amazing photos here by +Garrett LeSage+Jakub Steiner and +Hylke Bons . (Plus a few less amazing ones from me.)

Was generally impressed with Mann Lettings: they are very friendly and efficient, and we liked them personally. However, we were promised one thing that never materialised, and the fees were on the high side.
