work in progress for #elementary #location
btw their #AppCenter crowdfunding reached the 8000USD goal, but it is still on, if you want to add some more!

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/appcenter-the-pay-what-you-want-app-store#/

something, that doesn't concern elementary, but #Mint. it is a very bad culture when you roll out a very successful project, and you don't give back to the original ..it is totally the #Ubuntu mentality

terribly sorry if i got that wrong, but i'm personally not aware of any contribution from Mint to #GNOME ..you can correct me if wrong!

but also for elementary! they should have done, their and GNOME apps interplay story, better.

and yes. GNOME holds responsibilities for it too (even for Ubuntu), but not on the same degree.

not sure if you recognize this, but it is #terminix ..again :p

what you may not know though, is that terminix is written on #DLang ..and if you haven't check on GTK-D the bindings are updated to #GTK 3.22, and include most (if not all) GNOME modules, like the VTE that Terminix uses

https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD

i dont know if #Rust or D makes more sense to write a GNOME application today, but D has a huge advantage. First bindings are more updated, but second the language itself looks lots like #C, so it comes easier to re-use (re-write) existing things from various #GNOME modules, something that +Gerald Nunn I think he heavily done, at least when he started terminix.

in any case, Rust or D, both languages for now have the disadvantage that come from single vendors (D is two people - Rust is from #Mozilla), so they are not like #C++, either haven't such large use as #Go, but I would give Rust an advantage over D, to get better community support ..plus Rust has insane active development!

Btw if you miss some things from Rust bindings you can try generate bindings from `gir`

https://github.com/gtk-rs/gir-files/tree/71d73f05707e0f4800274c6440a0d493fbe71646

saying because I just tried use #VTE and make a baby terminix in Rust :)

this is a fix, where Recent View on Files, wasn't actually showing recent

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=777507

the patches moved the sorting mechanism from `atime` to `recent::modified` on `glib/gvfs`

occasionally i've noticed 'wrong' sorting also to normal views, when we sort by modified date ..anyway!

btw you can disable Recent Items & Menu from Settings ➔ Privacy ➔ Usage & History

thats my Windows10 #GIMP and I want to share a comment by +Alexandre Prokoudine member of GIMP team

So I asked (2d ago) Alex if he can give some rough estimations when GIMP 2.10 will be out, and by rough I meant if it will be inside 2017 or we have to wait one more year.

Alex said
"so far it still looks like a 2017 release. Rewriting blending/compositing code while introducing linear workflow turned out to be a more serious task than expected"

if this happen is double exciting! First because after 5 years, a new major GIMP version will be out with all the new features, and second because after 2.10 release, it comes GIMP 3.0 ported on a newer GTK version, most probably on GTK 4.0+, so GIMP devs can use the graph scene for their custom widgets.

I say GTK 4.0+ because till the port will complete, will most likely have GTK 5 (1.5 years from now)

however when GIMP, which is the reason that GTK was written at first place (isn't it?) is still using an 6 years old & unmaintained toolkit (apart some bug fixes), then, GTK3 must have done something terribly wrong

in fact, 6 years with GTK3, I dont know not a single ..not one, professional or complex UI application using that toolkit ..what I do know, is porting to Qt ..and porting to Qt.. and keep porting to Qt ..and obviously not starting anything new on GTK ..not to mention internal companies software (mostly for tablets), that is ~exclusively Qt and ~zero GTK

edit ..forgot about #Darktable ..that was a successful GTK3 port!
https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable

therefore I'm waiting GIMP 3.0 as concept of proof that you can actually develop with GTK, you can actually port GTK in more platforms than Linux, and GTK isn't a toolkit for doing 5-10 GNOME core apps and thats all GTK is about!

..listen to description!
#Alacritty (written on #Rust) is the #fastest #terminal #emulator in existence. Using the GPU for rendering enables optimizations that simply aren't possible in other emulators

see? that speed is not possible on other emulators! btw you need #Tmux (or something similar) because there are no tabs or anything!
