[News] GNOME Steps Up Technically and GNOME Journal Released

Hash: SHA1

GConf - GNOME Desktop on steroids

,----[ Quote ]
| GConf is a system of storing preferences of most of the installed 
| applications, as well as the environment and desktop for GNOME for Linux. 
| GConf made its way into GNOME 2.0 first, but it also can be used in pure 
| GTK+, XLib, KDE or pure text mode. The tool so far isn’t very spectacular, 
| but its developers have quite ambitious plans.   


The GNOME Foundation Needs Your Help


Behind the Scenes: Stormy Peters

,----[ Quote ]
| Jayson Rowe interviews Stormy Peters, the Executive Director of the GNOME 
| Foundation. Stormy discusses how she started in open source, her role in 
| GNOME, her view of GNOME’s future and more.  



Next GNOME Foundation Elections

,----[ Quote ]
| As people probably remember, the current GNOME Foundation Board was elected
| to serve until June 30th, 2009. We changed the end date from December 31th to
| June 30th so that the new board could have a face-to-face meeting at the very
| beginning of its term, during GUADEC. This face-to-face meeting is most
| useful to energize the board and make things go faster, so it really makes
| sense to have it occur at the beginning of a board term.


GNOME 2.26: Fast & Stable, But Light On The New Features

,----[ Quote ]
| As I’ve used GNOME 2.26, I tried hard to find new things to make the overall
| release notable, but unfortunately I couldn’t really find anything exciting.
| Don’t get me wrong, GNOME is not a horrible desktop by any means; it’s fast,
| stable and gets the job done. However, this new release likely will not do
| much to convince users of other desktop environments to make the switch.


Changes to the GNOME System Administration Team

,----[ Quote ]
| We'd like to announce a formal system administration team. GNOME has long had
| an informal sysadmin team that has managed the gnome.org services. Putting
| this team on a more formal basis similar to the GNOME Release Team will allow
| us to involve and recognize contributors more effectively, and better
| coordinate with other parts of the GNOME project.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
