#33 Fabulous Screenshots

• Curated by Felix

Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from February 25 to March 04.


Sophie Herold reports

Chris 🌱️ and I launched the Update App Screenshots Initiative. Our short-term goal is to have up-to-date screenshots for all Core apps for the upcoming GNOME 42 release. So far, for 15 of 30 Core apps, merge requests are created or already merged.

If you are maintaining or contributing to an app, you can have a look at our screenshot guidelines, and if needed update your screenshots accordingly.

I have released an updated version of “Audio Sharing”. The interface has been adapted to the new Adwaita design, and some bugs that prevented streaming have been fixed.

In case you don’t know it yet - with this small tool you can stream the audio playback from your computer to other devices in your local network. You can find a more detailed description on the project homepage. It is available for download on Flathub.

GNOME Shell Extensions

Simon Schneegans says

The Desktop-Cube extension for GNOME Shell has been updated and brings many new features! Most importantly, you can now freely rotate the cube by click-and-drag. This works in the overview, on the desktop, and on the panel. The latter is especially cool if you have a maximized window!

Other changes include:

You can watch a trailer on YouTube!

That’s all for this week!
