Although recently I have heard an older (or more experienced) colleague say that he prefers a thousand words to a picture, the opposite has always been said, that a picture is worth a thousand words. That's why we add screenshots whenever we can, to graphically show what it's like whatever we're talking about. That is something that has been proposed to improve GNOME of your software.
Actually, this is not a novelty that improves the software itself, but its information, its details. What GNOME plans, for what also ask the community for help, it's showing updated screenshots of its software, and if it is considering it, it must be because until now they showed us images that were already months or even years old. That's something that have mentioned in the This Week in GNOME Note: Terrific Screenshots.
This week in GNOME
- The updated app screenshots initiative has been launched. Learn More.
- flatpak-vscode 0.0.21 has arrived with support for:
- New Flatpak manifest selector.
- Monitor changes to Flatpak manifests and modify status accordingly.
- JSON manifest support with comments.
- Better state management.
- New version of «Audio Sharing», with a new design based on libadwaita and some bugs fixed. It's an application to play music from one of our devices on others, but I have to say that I tried it a while ago and it didn't work for me.
- The first version of Workbench is now available, a closed space or sandbox where you can learn and experiment with GNOME technologies. It is also a tool for developers to test and build with instant feedback.
- Updated documentation, and can now be used to learn how it works GNOMEBuilder to write our own GNOME applications, among other things. The documentation is already prepared for GNOME 42 and libadwaita.
- The Desktop-Cube extension (header capture) has been updated with many new features. The most important is that you can now freely roll the cube by clicking and dragging. It works in the overview, on the desktop and in the panel. It also supports GNOME 42, touch screens and on-line translations.
And that's been it for this week at GNOME.
