Hot on the heels of the previous tarball

March 17, 2010

A quick note, dbus 1.2.22 is out, see the release announcement. OS vendors should use this for GNOME 2.30.

I also wanted to give a shout out to the cool patch from GNOME Shell contributor Maxim Ermilov, which lets you drag and drop windows from the “linear” workspace view, by temporarily zooming out. We had this in the “grid” view for a while, but hopefully this functionality will let us focus on making linear the central view.

Maxim did this in a few hundred lines of JavaScript. I’ve noticed a distinct lack of contributions from some of the old-school GNOME hackers, and I’m just saying…if he can do it so easily, well, you guys are getting schooled by the new kids on the block.
