Core Apps and Libraries


A simple calendar application.

Adrien Plazas says

Calendar received a new sidebar containing a date chooser and an agenda view, which replaced the year view and the navigation arrows. It is the first step implementing its new adaptive design, but please note the application isn’t adaptive yet.

Circle Apps and Libraries

Fina announces

Warp 0.2.0 was released: It features many design improvements, lots of new translations, support for mobile devices, improved error handling and much more. Happy file transferring :)


Scan and Generate QR Codes.

Maximiliano reports

Decoder 0.3.0 is out, some highlights:

  • QR codes are always black on white for maximum compatibility
  • See the text contents of a newly scanned code
  • Scanned codes are automatically stored in history


Plays music, and nothing else.

Emmanuele Bassi announces

Amberol 0.8.0 is out: you can now search for songs in your playlist just by starting to type, even when in selection mode. Plus: Amberol can now run in the background through the sandbox portal; cover art is shared across songs in the same album, to reduce memory use; and the window size is correctly restored across sessions. Bonus news: if you use macOS, you can now build and run Amberol using dependencies from the Homebrew project.

Third Party Projects

noëlle announces

Bottles 2022.6.14 was released, bringing GTK4+Libadwaita, performance enhancements, and many smaller interface improvements.

xjuan says

Cambalache 0.10.0 is out! - Adwaita, Handy, inline objects, special child types, and more…


Matrix messaging app for GNOME written in Rust.

Marco Melorio says

Hi there! I’m Marco Melorio and I’m participating in this year’s Google Summer of Code, under the GNOME Foundation. I’m working on Fractal, the GNOME matrix client, with the help of my mentor Julian Sparber. More specifically, I’m working on implementing a media history viewer to the app.

To follow my progress on the project you can check out my blog here. I’ve already published a small introduction post about me and a first update post which includes a mockup and milestones about the project.

GNOME Foundation

Microsoft has awarded GNOME $10,000 for winning its FOSS fund #20 https://twitter.com/sunnydeveloper/status/1536744475979939841

That’s all for this week!
