#47 Counting Items

• Curated by Felix

Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from June 03 to June 10.

Core Apps and Libraries


The low-level core library that forms the basis for projects such as GTK and GNOME.

Philip Withnall announces

Benjamin Otte has just added a GListStore:n-items property to GLib, to make it easier to bind UI elements to whether a list store is empty


Lets you install and update applications and system extensions.

Philip Withnall reports

István Derda has added an --uninstall command line option to gnome-software, to allow starting the uninstall process for an app from the command line. This should allow easier integration of gnome-software into other things.

Circle Apps and Libraries

Sophie announces

This week, Amberol joined GNOME Circle. Amberol just plays your music folders and files. Congratulations!


Simple application for generating Two-Factor Authentication Codes.

Bilal Elmoussaoui announces

Authenticator 4.1.6 is out. The new version includes:

  • Google Authenticator restore support by Julia
  • Disabled GTK Inspector in release builds
  • Redesigned account details QR code

Third Party Projects

James Westman announces

I’ve released blueprint-compiler v0.2.0, the first tagged release! If you’re using blueprint in a project, I highly recommend using this tag instead of the main branch, to avoid any breakage as the language develops toward 1.0. You can do this with "tag": "v0.2.0" in your flatpak manifest and revision = v0.2.0 in blueprint-compiler.wrap.

  • Include all icons from icon-development-kit

  • Fix error when importing files



A pure wayland shell for mobile devices.

Guido says

phoc 0.20.0 and phosh 0.20.0.beta1 are out adding swipe gesture support for top and bottom bar, reworked quick settings (which are now also accessible on the lock screen), a switch to latest wlroots (0.15.1) and much more.


Track your time without being tracked

Ricky Kresslein says

Furtherance v1.5.0 was released and it now has a button to repeat tasks (instead of right-click), CSV Export (thanks to Felix Zwettler), a centered timer when there are no saved tasks, and local date formats.

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!
