libhandy 1.0.0 released. 🎉

We released it a bit in advance to let application maintainers update their submodules in time for the GNOME 3.38.0 release. 😀 That being said, we expect distros to ship libhandy as any other regular stable library. 😉

GSoC intern Neville Antony has been working on empowering Games users by allowing them to create pre-defined and custom collections to stay organized the way they want.

Check out the final project report on their blog:

If you didn't port your app to libhandy 1, now is the best time. We even have a migration guide to help you!

If you ported to a libhandy 1 alpha, I also strongly recommend you to update to 0.90 as you are guaranteed you won't have to change a thing after.

So you think creating a @gnome application is necessarily done with C and you need to fight the compiler for hours before getting anything?

Quite the opposite! This thread shows you how to get started quickly to create a GNOME friendly GTK Rust app!

The hdy_init() documentation:

⚠️ If you use libhandy master: we reintroduced hdy_init() to replace the library constructor to fix many corner cases, please use it.

It isn't the same function as hdy_init() in the 0.0 version, learn how to use it here in the nightly documentation:

We need a cultural shift in libre software, we need to name things and quit talking of "developers".

We need:
- Designers to think of how the project can elegantly solve actual problems
- Devs to share technical feasibility and make the software
- Translators so anyone can use it
- A feedback team to protect devs & designers from harrassment and show progress
- A community to use the project, give feedback, accept their opinion is not universal, and pay for what it uses. Everyone needs to eat.

I wrote about some of the ongoing GNOME Shell UX work:

There's some very cool stuff cooking in GNOME Shell land, stay tuned!
