    Default Disk Improvements Within GNOME 3.6

    Phoronix: Disk Improvements Within GNOME 3.6

    While disk management improvements might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to a desktop environment update, the disk utility (Disks) and udev within GNOME 3.6 will offer some new features...

    I wonder what features they're going to drop though.

    Probably something trivial and non-touch-friendly like SMART data.

    Nice trolling. It is a shame you didnt RTFA. Now you just look silly. They added features. If you want to read about feature removals go check out Kwin. They started to rip out stuff in despair of bugs and umaintained cruft.

    I may have missed something but if I recall correctly it was just one feature: tile based window management. And yes in my experience it was a buggy mess that shouldn't have been accepted in the first place, but being optional there wasn't much harm for the few releases it lasted.

    He is not trolling, he _did_ read the article. He is fully aware features were added. His point is that Gnome actually added features for once since gnome 3. He is simply commenting on the usual behavior of the gnome development team. Adding features is a rare occurence. Removing them is often. His point about non-tocuh friendly is refrencing Gnome butchering nautilus because many features were simply not touch friendly. Anyone with 2 brain cells who has followed gnome development in the last month could figure out what he was referencing.

    It's called deprecation. Few people used tiling windows and it was buggy, so they removed it. It's kinda what gnome did to the entire gnome 2.x code base.

    You're making yourself look silly.

    It wasn't even a permanent removal, they said a port to the new kwin scripting framework is already underway.
