#16 Card-Carrying

• Curated by Felix

Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from October 22 to October 29.

Core Apps and Libraries


Building blocks for modern GNOME apps using GTK4.

Alexander Mikhaylenko says

libadwaita has new style classes:

  • .card to help style standalone widgets similarly to boxed lists as seen in Software, Shortwave or Health
  • .opaque for making custom colored buttons

and a demo listing most of the available style classes (both the ones that it adds and the ones from GTK) that can be used as a reference


Configure various aspects of your GNOME desktop.

Georges Stavracas (feaneron) announces

the gnome-bluetooth library was ported to GTK4. The GTK4 version can be installed in parallel to the GTK3 version.

GNOME Builder

IDE for writing GNOME-based software.

Marco Melorio announces

I’ve added a GTK4 Rust template to GNOME Builder. Compared to the GTK3 template, it features composite templates, subclassing, about dialog, gactions and accelerators.

Circle Apps and Libraries

Sophie Herold says

This week Mousai entered GNOME Circle. Mousai can identify playing songs via microphone or from you device audio. Congratulations!

NewsFlash lost support for feedly due to the API secret expiring. The new release of version 1.5.0 removes the feedly option from the flathub builds. But the code is still present and custom builds with developer secrets are possible. As an alternative to feedly NewsFlash 1.5.0 now offers support for Inoreader. We are still looking to find a maintainer for the Inoreader integration who dog-foods NewsFlash together with Inoreader.


Easy to use BitTorrent client.

Felix announces

This week I implemented queue support in Fragments v2 (the upcoming Rust/Libadwaita rewrite). The torrent queue can be reordered so that torrents are downloaded in the desired order. Maximiliano added support for automatically detecting magnet links from the clipboard.

Third Party Projects


A pure wayland shell for mobile devices.

Guido announces

We released phosh 0.14.0 featuring

  • Launch splash support
  • An improved media player widget with seek buttons
  • Less flicker on startup

and much more. Check the full release notes for more details and contributors.

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!
