Anybody know when we can expect to see this in the repos?

Re: Gnome 2.24

I'd imagine it'll have to come out first. wink If history repeats itself not too long after that though!

It's out. At least everything is appearing on the ftp trees as of yesterday.

Re: Gnome 2.24

Hm... Deja vu. Didn't we have a thread similar to this when GNOME 2.22 was released?

Yeah, and the 50 KDE4-like threads that followed... Yikes!

Not *that* impressive. Compact Layout looks quite nice though.

Well yeah... it's technically been available for a long time. But apparently it has still not been deemed stable (or something like that...)

Which is a pity, as it's one of the few gnome apps that tempts me every once in a while, but without webkit it is just not distinguished enough to justify me using it over firefox.

Re: Gnome 2.24

webkit as default backend was pushed back to 2.26, so actually fflarex is right.

Re: Gnome 2.24

didn't know that they hold up epiphany to 2.26. but this has been expected because the beta isn't stable enough. i managed to crash epiphany when i login to google mail

Re: Gnome 2.24

so usually it's about a month till gnome hits the extras repo?
that's about as long as it takes Cannonical to put out Ubuntu after each GNOME release.

I'll be patient smile

It depends on how different under the hood this release is from the last. If it's not a big technological jump, it will hit the repos soon. If it's a big one like last time, it could take a while. Or, the devs can throw into the wild and every thread in all categories will read something like this:

The Gnome upgrade killed my pet monkey!!!

Re: Gnome 2.24

ok, wonder and i have discussed the possibility of a gnome sub-community for arch (i wasn't really serious the first time around), we both agreed it's a good idea (obviously) and thought we should bring the discussion here, ideas and comments are welcomed.. smile

Re: Gnome 2.24

Most of the work for gnome 2.24 is prepared, but there's some things that need to be done:
- completely revised gdm package (the current one sucks)
- auto-start for dbus, in 2.22 gnome-session handles this, in 2.24 we have to do it ourselves
- make sure consolekit and policykit integration works 100% fine
