GNOME: GNOME 3.16 Released

The GNOME project has released GNOME 3.16, the latest version of GNOME 3. The new version is the result of six months work, and includes 33,525 changes by 1043 authors.

Speaking on behalf of the Release Team, Javier Jardón said: “It’s great to see the fantastic results of our hard work, and it goes without saying that this could not be possible without all the effort from great the GNOME community! I definitely think this is the best GNOME release yet.”

GNOME 3.16 brings a brand new notification system and updated calendar design, which helps you to easily keep track of what’s happened, and includes useful information like world times and event reminders. Other features include overlaid scrollbars, updated visuals, improved content views in Files, and a redesigned image viewer.

Major additions have also been made to the GNOME developer experience: GTK+ support for OpenGL now allows GTK+ apps to support 3D natively, a new GLib reference counting feature will help with debugging, and GTK+ Inspector has also had a major update.

The release notes contain more details on these new features, as well as the many other improvements in the new release. If that’s not enough, a live image is available, so you can try it yourself. Additionally, more information can be found in the 3.16 press release.

GNOME: GNOME supports GPL compliance through VMware suit

The GNOME Foundation supports the Software Freedom Conservancy in its efforts to ensure compliance with the GNU General Public License (GPL) through Christoph Hellwig’s lawsuit against VMware. Like the Linux kernel, the GNOME Project chooses the GPL (as well as the LGPL) to license our software. Working in Free Software is a collaborative effort where all parties benefit, but this outcome is only realized if there is cooperation. Both the GPL and copyleft make this collaboration possible. The GPL is an important tool for safeguarding Free Software and when other avenues for cooperation have been exhausted litigation is the only recourse.

Development: TARBALLS DUE: 3.15.92

Hi!

Please do your best to keep this Monday deadline, it really helps the
work of the release team.

Thank you all!
