GNOME presents Upscaler among this week's news

Upscaler in GNOME

One more weekend, and let it continue, the most adept must be thinking, GNOME He has published an entry with the most outstanding news that has taken place in his world. Article number 70 has been given the title of "Useful Progress Bars", as GNOME Software now has progress bar reports for rpm-ostree downloads. It should be noted that GNOME Software is the original version of Ubuntu Software, which is nothing more than a limited version and which prefers Canonical's snap packages (and is not compatible with flatpaks).

On the other hand, and as always, they have talked about news in applications, among which I would highlight the arrival of Upscaler. It has appeared during this week, and it serves to improve the quality of some images. Below you have the news that there has been in GNOME in the week of November 11 to 18, 2022.

This week in GNOME

  • Dynamic Wallpaper v0.1.0 is now available. This software is an application that helps to create a dynamic background that changes depending on whether we use light or dark mode. The new version has a cleaner design, allows you to name the backgrounds you create and choose which file will be used for light mode and which in dark mode with a new “Create” button.

  • Black Box 0.12.2 has come with fixes for some annoying bugs related to selecting and pasting text.
  • nautilus-code v0.5 has arrived this week. The software is an extension that adds a right-click context menu and displays options for opening the file in a code editor or IDE, such as VSCode or GNOME Builder. This version adds support for GNOME 43 and fixes an issue where paths to folders with whitespace in them were not handled correctly.
  • Upscaler 1.0.0 has been released, and is available on Flathub. This is an application (header capture) that will improve the quality of images, and it is written in GTK. It is basically a front-end (GUI or user interface) for Real-ESRGAN ncnn Vulkan, artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to retouch images and improve them. I have tried it and the results can be very good, although it is also true that sometimes you can tell that there have been touch-ups, or at least you can tell if you know they exist.

    • Add groups to an account and associate transactions with the groups for a more accurate financial management system.
