I have recently upgraded to Gnome 3.12 on my Fedora 20 MBPr laptop via custom copr repo. Things are so much better compared to 3.10.

However, I noticed that applications like Web, Evolution, Geary and few other do not render fonts properly - they seem very blurry. See screenshot below.

Has anyone got similar issue? Any points how to solve this would be great. Thanks.

Please file a bug here : https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=gtk%2B and attach your screenshot.
I'm hoping to get a retina screen at some point, I would really love to see that fixed :)

I love gnome. I have been using 3.8 on my macbook air retina for some time now and recently decided to try the new 3.10 on fedora 20.

I have to admit that it looks ugly on retina displays. Maybe this auto dpi scaling by factor 2 might not be a good idea after all?

Have a look at the screenshots below and let me know what you think.

Are you a +Debian developer? Then you get a game! And you! And you! +Valve are giving away a pass for all Valve games on Steam to Debian developers, to say thanks for the base for SteamOS. (Goes without saying that we're really proud of the work +Collabora Ltd. have been doing there too ... plug plug.)

Someone like this, comes out of nowhere and is amazing. She's got a perfect voice for my #vocaltrance taste.

Is there a way to change window drop shadow depth/size? Any pointers would be useful. Thanks!

+Michael Heyns This is very useful. I tried it actually, but it only works on client-rendered gtk apps. It doesn't seem to have any effect on gnome-terminal window. I will play with this more.

An interesting read, and a good reminder that the process of putting together a Linux distribution works best when Volunteers and Corporate employees work together for common goals.

I've never understood how Canonical expected to find success by ignoring both their immediate community of volunteers as well as the wider community of FOSS projects.

Having an strong corporate goal is great, but neglecting the needs and desires of your volunteer contributor base is just going to send them elsewhere, which is going to make it a heck of a lot more expensive for you to reach your corporate goal.

If your project distinguishes between your corporate and volunteer communities, I can't see how that could possibly be healthy. In fact with +openSUSE I often lose track of who is a +SUSE employee and who isn't; and I think that's GREAT. It just doesn't matter, we're all contributors on equal footing, our contributions do the talking and decide our status among each other, as peers working together on an Open Project.

Indeed, some of +openSUSE's best successes have been when we've crossed the 'traditional' chasms - our various teams work together regularly on distro-wide issues like branding and software management so our users get a better experience.
Why waste time with "traditional" rivalries like +GNOME vs KDE when you can have both working together?

And decent collaboration isn't just internal to +openSUSE
Every time I've worked with various 'upstream' projects (eg. +GNOME ) I've always been struck by how easily its been to resolve our issues to the benefit of both projects.

I've never understood Canonical's need to fork or reimplement ideas which other people (often more of them) are already working on.

It's my experience that everything just works better when people try to work together, share ideas, find common solutions, and use discussion and consultation to find a solution, not appointed overlords wielding vetos to push a corporate agenda, I really think that has no place in a FOSS Project.
