Today I spent some time watching +Linus Torvalds on youtube, stumbled upon this particular bit. Considering the "unholy mess" we did with 3.0, I'm pretty happy hearing those words some years later.

Yeah so this happened, litterally the first isolated comment  :)
So now whenever someone says "Why are devs and contributors leaving?" I will refer them back to this little ray of sunshine.

I mean its no biggy on its own, its when this is the norm, when you just expect to get shit more than anything. It doesn't matter how good you are, or how hard you work. What matters is how long you can deal with it before you go "meh I can do other stuff instead".

Google be nice
 
+Google
Bad news Lollypop users, after "Google Web API", "DuckDuckGo API" is now restricted.

So, Lollypop 0.9.111 is broken, will release tomorrow a 0.9.112 fixing the issue (Using +Google Custom Search API).

But this API has limitations (100 searches a day)... So you will need to setup a custom API key.

Please +Google don't be evil, remove restrictions for «Free Software», I can't pay more than 2000$ for my users and getting an API key is a pain for them!

For those curious about the plans for a scene graph API in GTK, +Emmanuele Bassi has written the first blog post in a series about GSK and using the GPU to render GTK widgets.
Some people started noticing bits and pieces of GSK landing in the GTK+ repository, mostly in topic branches, so it's probably a good time to explain what I'm doing, how am I doing it, how long it's going to take, and what it means for everybody else who is waiting for a scene graph API, ...

Few weeks ago I posted Shaping the scenario tasks, where I shared a “draft” of the scenario tasks and promised to come back with some improvements as the “final version” of these tasks. And here I …

+Georges Basile Stavracas Neto The one doesn't deter the other: Obviously when we ask for online storage and sync, doesn't mean we remove the local.

Personally I think that GNOME has reached its pick, there is nothing left to do than online part. For sure you can upgrade graphics, and libs, improve performance, add some more features, but I believe the real improvement will be when ToDo (your app) will sync and store with GNOME Online Accounts and keep the Todo highscores online :)

Again? +Georges Basile Stavracas Neto please stop being that awesome! ;-)
 
A few days ago, I had access to an article [1] talking about GNOME. How it evolved during the last few years, and how mature is the latest release. Except for GNOME Calendar.

I was shocked.

The worst of all: I agreed with most of the author's points.

I had 3 choices: stop working on Calendar (it's bad anyway, whatever), blame the article's author or fix my application.

I obviously decided to go with the last one.

So, today I just landed another set of updates to Calendar. We have now a beautiful redesigned edit dialog with a new header button to select the agenda of the event. I just implemented moving events between agendas.
Alarms are now supported. Fixed a couple of crashes that were very annoying, and some other issues here and there. There is a Week view coming from a GSoC intern.

I could blame the lack of time, no payments for this work, whatever else. They're all valid reasons for not working, I can't deny. But please, please myself, the world goes on because of the hardworking people, not the ones who come up with excuses.

And that's what happens when a happy GNOME developer drinks way too much coffee, mate tea and coconut sugar.
In another of my (appearently common) insomnia nights, I decided to add a cool new to my pet application – Calendar. Something fast enough to be done in one night, but still useful. So, this …
