#102 Contextual Back Buttons

• Curated by Felix

Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from June 23 to June 30.

GNOME Core Apps and Libraries


Building blocks for modern GNOME apps using GTK4.

Alice (she/they) says

AdwNavigationView back buttons now support a context menu allowing to pop multiple pages at once. This works with nested navigation views and even with structures like AdwNavigationSplitView containing navigation views in both content and sidebar. Additionally, back button tooltips are now more reliable - they previously didn’t work in this situation and required the app to manually sync the sidebar page’s title with its navigation view’s visible page. Now it’s automatic like in other cases

Tagger is currently at V2023.7.0-beta2 !

After months of no updates, we are proud to bring Tagger back and better than ever. Tagger has received the C# treatment and has been completely rewritten from the ground up with a more stable and performant backend. To signify this great release, we even have a new icon thanks to @daudix-UFO ! Besides being written in C#, we also added some new features and fixed pre-existing bugs that you can read about below. Tagger is also now available to translate on Weblate !

We urge everyone who uses Tagger / wants to use Tagger to help us test the beta releases so we can iron out any issues before our stable release this Sunday. We hope you enjoy this release as much as we enjoyed making it :)

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Tagger has been completely rewritten in C#! With this new language comes better performance and more stable features. To signify this great change, we also updated the app icon!
  • Added a separate option in Preferences for overwriting album art with MusicBrainz metadata independently of the overwriting tag data setting
  • Added an option in Preferences for controlling how music files are sorted
  • Track values will now be padded into double digits
  • Fixed an issue where some file types were not loading album art correctly
  • Fixed an issue where applying unapplied changes would sometimes not work
  • Improved UI/UX
  • Updated translations (Thanks everyone on Weblate!)

GNOME Network Displays

Stream the desktop to Wi-Fi Display capable devices

Pedro Sader Azevedo says

GNOME Network Displays gained a DBus interface, that exposes the list of screencasting devices (also known as “sinks”) discovered in your network. This is part of the ongoing effort to allow GNOME Network Displays to function as a screencasting backend for other projects (e.g. GNOME Shell, GNOME Settings, xdg-portal, etc).
