After much deliberation, Christian Dywan, lead developer of our flagship browser Midori, along with his talented team have decided to make the jump and host Midori fully in Launchpad. What does that mean for Midori’s code, translations, and for contributors? You’re about to find out!
The elementary Human Interface Guidelines have recently been updated to include some newer widgets available to developers in the latest versions of Granite and found in the upcoming elementary OS Luna.
The number one question on everyone’s mind is, “When is Luna going to be released?” The answer is of course, “When it’s ready.” But how do we know when that is? You’re about to find out.
elementary utilizes Launchpad for everything from hosting code, collaborative development, specification tracking, translations, and even announcements. Oftentimes people miss announcements that are posted there, so I've decided to copy some here. Check 'em out.
Let’s throw this right on the table from the beginning: Contractor is not a sharing service. It is not about social networking. Contractor is not about tweets or Facebook or “The Cloud”. Contractor doesn’t even need an Internet connection at all to strut it’s stuff. Contractor doesn’t help users connect to each other. So clear your mind of all these thoughts and I’ll let you know just what exactly Contractor does do.
During this week's Contributor Meeting we covered some pretty interesting subjects; there was discussion ranging from a widget layer to focusing on the upcoming Luna release.
For the past few weeks, we’ve held our Contributor Meetings (previously referred to as "Developer Forums") via IRC. A bit of just about everything has been discussed, and there’s been a good amount of decisions made.
Lately there's been a lot of discussion in the IRC channel and I thought I'd clue everyone into some of the things we've been talking about. It's always great to have those times when everyone is able to actively discuss things all at once in an unofficial setting, and the past couple of weeks have been filled with those times. Follow along to hear what we've been talking about.
Community engagement is awesome. Not just for end-users, but also for developers.
