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!
The #GNOME Stack 3.34 stack upgrade push to unstable begins!
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 ✅
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
Formal heads-up: Stream begins in 30 minutes from now over at https://www.twitch.tv/joshstrobl
1. Work on some #GNOME package upgrades that are a bit more tedious or long-running (e.g. mozjs + gjs, libwebkit-gtk, libgtk-3 itself, etc).
2. Go to store to get goodies.
3. Stream GNOME 3.34 stack upgrade over on https://twitch.tv/joshstrobl 🎉
Still around 4 hours or so out from starting the stream, but feel free to follow me on Twitch and turn on notifications to get notified on when I'm going live! I'll also keep peeps posted on my socials with any adjusted ETA!
