In case you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a new GNOME release – 3.24! The release is the result of 6 months’ work by the GNOME community.
The new release is a major step forward for us, with new features and improvements, and some exciting developments in how we build applications. You can read more about it in the announcement and release notes.
As always, this release was made possible partially thanks to the Friends of GNOME project. In particular, it helped us provide a Core apps hackfest in Berlin last November, which had a direct impact on this release.
I’ve just come back from the GTK+ hackfest in London – thanks to RedHat and Endless for sponsoring the venues! It was great to meet a load of people who are involved with GNOME and GTK, and some great discussions were had about Flatpak and the creation of a “FlatHub” – somewhere that people can get all their latest Flatpaks from.
As I’m writing this, I’m sitting on a train going to Heathrow, for my flight to LibrePlanet 2017! If you’re going to be there, come and say hi. I’ve a load of new stickers that have been produced as well so these can brighten up your laptop.
