Our ferryd and Help Center hackfest starts in about 1 hour! Tune in at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TUmsbvnKlc
With the latest goodies from the GNOME 3.34 stack in the unstable repo, we're going to be deferring sync until next Friday to ensure the updates you're provided are delivered in a manner which reflects our expectations for testing and polish. This will also provide us an opportunity to work out any issues related to Linux 5.3.1!
@fatboy Too early to say but I look forward to getting this in a final polished state and pushing it out to the repo so you can check 😉
I still have some tweaks I want to do, but here's both Budgie and GNOME Shell 3.34 under #Solus 🎉
Budgie: Works ✅
GNOME Shell: No regressions in extensions - Dash to Dock, Impatience, and TopIcons Plus all functional ✅
219 package updates into the GNOME Stack upgrade and I've finally found a competent developer that knows how to properly summarize changelogs of what happened between two major stable releases / series. Good job Epiphany developer.
Everybody else has the tendency to just say "Translation updates" or "new app icon" when in reality there could've been massive, fundamental changes that happened in the 3.33 dev releases that should really be noted when someone is updating between two stable series.
Hey all #Solus peeps, since Bryan and I are going to be doing the Solus hackfest tomorrow and I want to make sure I power through a bunch of these packages so I have less for tomorrow's stream, I'm opting to not do the gnome stack updates stream today.
Feel free to tune in tomorrow at 2pm UTC at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TUmsbvnKlc for the hackfest! Bryan will be working on ferryd and I will be finishing up the rest of the GNOME stack updates and maybe tackle upgrades for other parts of the stack!
Happy to announce our upcoming hackfest: ferryd, Reporting for Query Duty, for Saturday Sept. 21st at 10am Eastern, 2pm UTC! In this hackfest, Bryan will be working on report generation in #ferryd and Josh will be finalizing work on the #GNOME 3.34 stack upgrade! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TUmsbvnKlc
