Just discovered Flatseal on Flathub: flathub.org/apps/details/com.g

Along with other gems like Lollipop, Fragments, Icon Library, Colour Palette, Bustle, I'm really enjoying the renaissance in GNOME app development that Flatpak and Flathub have ushered in.

🦄 Geary 3.36.0 has been released! 🍃🍃

A new composer, undo everywhere, and finally no more accidentally archiving emails when you press the A key. 😅



Mmm, Dino is the kind of client that makes me want to spin up an XMPP server again: dino.im/

Yesss! GNOME Maps in 3.36 is going to start getting public transport directions: ml4711.blogspot.com/2019/12/ch

I wonder if it will work in Melbourne?

I (very occasionally) get asked what my dev setup is for Geary, so while `git bisect run` is running, here it is. In short:

* Emacs with vala-mode, dvc-mode and a minimal amount of customisation
* GNOME Terminal with custom per-project shell environments (".localrc")
* GDB for debugging
* Gitg for making git less terrible to use
* GNOME DevHelp/Web for docs
* The Open in Terminal extension for GNOME Files

Apologies for not using anything more fancy. :)


Deprecating IRC in favour of Matrix for Geary support and chat: mail.gnome.org/archives/geary-

I'd rather not have to do this, but we just get way too many people dropping in with support questions then leaving before anyone has has had a chance to answer.

Good to see Apple following GNOME's lead and using sane default application names: support.apple.com/en-us/HT2102

✨✨ Geary 3.34.0 out now! ✨✨

Improved contacts popover, autocomplete contacts from desktop address book, spell checker for the subject line, and a whole lot of bug fixes. It's the best Geary yet!

Now available on flathub.org

Teach coding? Teach coding with libre software? @GNOME and Endless is running a competition with $500,000 (USD I guess?) in prizes for you: gnome.org/news/2019/08/gnome-f

Wonder if I'll be able to install Debian and GNOME3 on the Fairphone 3?

How did I miss Glimpse being a thing?

Geary has just adopted the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct for the project's communication channels: mail.gnome.org/archives/geary-

If it hasn't already, maybe it's time your FOSS project did the same?

Another advantage of running Firefox on your phone (aside from working against the Google Chrome hegemony) is that you can enable sending updates to Mozilla Location Services, so GNOME apps that use your location tend towards being very accurate, even if you don't have GPS on your computer.
