Other Highlights For GNOME 2.31.1
Phoronix: Other Highlights For GNOME 2.31.1
As was mentioned this morning GNOME's Totem Movie Player is preparing for GNOME 3.0 by picking up de-interlacing support and a-synchronous play-list loading, among other improvements. Other packages are also being checked-in this week for the first GNOME 3.0 development release known as GNOME 2.31.1. Besides the updates to Totem and the major work going on to the GNOME Shell / Mutter / Zeitgeist, there is some other interesting new features too...
Oh those news are so much fun. I'd like to begin with saying that nothing really changed in the 6 months of development for the Gnome 3 series and that they probably only removed some features.
Well that's what I always do when it comes down to Gnome, so this time, I decided to stick with a: good job, developers, I appreciate your work
Why would you like to say nothing's changed in six months of development? Because you prefer to be a mindless troll instead of saying something with a grain of truth to it?

It depends what they're doing. Afaik they're in transition to Gnome 3, so the most of this is probably cleaning, converting etc. I suppose D2kx was talking about different things which are more useful for end users.

Whether I actually think that a lot of exciting stuff happened is another thing. Well, it's too late anyway, the war has begun, so let me get some popcorn and I'll join BlackStar on sitting back and having fun.

gnome = we like to stay always behind. we don't like to bring innovation. xfce existance makes more sense than me. I, gtk based that was created because kde was using qt closed at that time, now I use MONO.
Although I don't buy that gnome-shell/zeitgeist/mutter thing, there's lots of good stuff coming from Gnome devs these days. Even Yelp will become usable in Gnome 3.
lol....ur joking... if gnome shell himself is not a innovation, what is? te interface is interesting.. let KDE out of this, dont compare apples with bannanas!!!

And the latest Ubuntu theming quite pushes the limit (well, buttons at the wrong place, but that's beside the point).
