#10 Making History

• Curated by Felix

Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from September 10 to September 17.

Third Party Projects


Matrix messaging app for GNOME written in Rust.

Alexandre Franke says

Big news in Fractal this week: history loading landed, thanks to Julian.


A Telegram client optimized for the GNOME desktop.

Marco Melorio reports

Telegrand has seen good improvements over this week! The outgoing messages now use the accent color (helpful to better identify own messages). Incoming messages have been made slightly lighter.

I added the support to show stickers and some events-related messages (like deleting the group or channel photo) in the chat.


Maximiliano announces

Introducing Emblem, a new design tool to generate project avatars for GitLab, GitHub and your Matrix room.

You can get Emblem at flathub, you can also read the accompanying blog post.

Circle Apps and Libraries

Sophie Herold says

This week Share Preview entered GNOME Circle. Share Preview allows to quickly preview the appearance of page links on social media. Congratulations!


Translate between languages.

Rafael Mardojai CM reports

Dialect now has localized language names, so now you can see 100% of the UI in your language! Translators don’t need to worry, those name can be generated automagically.

Déjà Dup Backups

A simple backup tool.

Michael Terry says

Déjà Dup got a small redesign to its default overview page, partly to allow the window to be resized much smaller but also to look a little more like standard GNOME design.

That’s all for this week!

See you next week, and be sure to stop by #thisweek:gnome.org with updates on your own projects!
