libhandy 1.2 just got released! 🎉 It comes with new cool widgets and many fixes, more at https://adrienplazas.com/blog/2021/03/12/libhandy-1-2.html.
A quick update to the GNOME Maps info bubbles I recently redesigned--they're now adaptive for your favorite mobile Linux device! https://www.jwestman.net/2021/02/10/gnome-maps-adaptive-place-bubbles.html
Rounded bottom corners and the redesigned preferences dialog just landed in Nautilus 🎉
Thanks to @KekunPlazas and António Fernandes for making it happen!
FLOSS and accurate Mega Drive emulators are not just rare: there is only BlastEm by Michael Pavone.
I'm glad to announce that @gnome Games will include BlastEm after we fixed remaining issues in its Libretro core.
I'll finally be able to play my favorite console with my app. 🥰
GNOME Games now supports Nintendo 3DS games via the Citra Libretro core. :) Touch input and screen layouts are supported just like for DS, though there are no savestates.
It should be available in nightly builds very soon, but for now games can only be added via the Heavy plus sign button, until there's a new shared-mime-info release.
🎮 libmanette 0.2.6 released! 🎉
It mosly is an in-depth code cleanup, but hey, who doesn't like clean code‽ 😄
RetroGTK — the Libretro
frontend framework for GTK
— has a new website: https://gnome.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/retro-gtk/
Nothing fancy, but at least we have a central point for anything related to the library. 😄
Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.
If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.
Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?
🔄 boosts welcome
Another batch of fixes, now we can start merging new features for the upcoming 1.1. :)
