GNOME Journal Issue 23, GNOME 3 edition, now out

We’ve now published a new edition of GNOME Journal! This one focuses on the launch of the 3.0 version of your favorite desktop environment. You can read these now at :

* “Letter From The Editor”: Editor-in-Chief Paul Cutler celebrates the release, and discusses innovation, pain, and history.

* “How We Got Here: A Design History of GNOME 3 & the Shell”: Daf Harries asks designers Jon McCann and Jakub Steiner the hard questions.

* “PyGTK, GObject, and GNOME 3”: Sumana Harihareswara interviews Tomeu Vizoso and John “J5” Palmieri about PyGTK, GObject, introspection and PyGObject. What’s new, what’s been surprising, and what’s next?

* “The Two Most Urgent Tasks: Simplicity and a Keyboard”: Cathy Malmrose of Linux hardware firm ZaReason asks the GNOME community to solve the two biggest pain points she sees.

* “Fonts in GNOME 3: Cantarell, Tweaking, and Trailblazing”: Nicolas Spalinger explains why Cantarell is more than just a font — it’s a symbol of a whole new design process. And he shows you how to tweak the font settings in GNOME 3.
