GNOME: Students are busy improving GNOME this summer

GNOME is once again participating as a mentoring organization in Google of Summer Code (GSoC), which provides stipends for students to work on Free Software projects over the summer.

GSoC students will work on many improvements to GNOME, including: an image viewing widget for GTK+, additional event sources for GNOME Shell’s time and date menu and improvements to the Java ATK-Wrapper (with the aim to make the Orca Screen Reader fully function with Java apps).

GNOME is also participating in the summer round of Outreachy. Our intern for this period will be working with Jim Hall to conduct usability testing.

This summer’s students will be regularly posting to Planet GNOME, so stay tuned for updates.

GNOME is only be able to offer these internships thanks to Google and the sponsors of Outreachy. We wish the interns the best of luck with their projects!

Wesnoth 1.13.0: Development Release

The first release of the new development series, Wesnoth 1.13.0, is now available. Check the forum thread for a list of the most notable changes in this version.
As on previous occasions, we also offer two versions of the changelog: a trimmed-down players changelog including only those items considered to be relevant in regular gameplay, and a more technical full changelog for enthusiasts and content creators. Be warned that both changelogs are extremely long this time around, since this is the very first development release in the series and many changes have piled up since 1.12 beta 2 (version 1.11.11) was released.
The source code and the Windows installer are already available on the downloads page. You may also find packages for other platforms there as they become available.
Bear in mind that this is a development version — as such, it is likely to include a lot of new bugs, some of which are already listed in the release notes. If you encounter other issues, make sure to report them to us so they can be fixed for future releases.
You may comment on this release in the forums.
