GNOME 2.4, stuff

GNOME 2.4 was released while I was on holiday. It was nice to miss the stress and just read the reviews when I got back. People seem pleased but unsurprised, and that’s how it should be.

I don’t understand any of that Ars Technica “spatial finder” article, and it’s not the first time I’ve tried to read it. I suspect that it’s badly written, and I hope that it’s just about opening folders in their own windows and not having back/forward buttons. If so, it’ll be more like classic MacOS and I’ll be happy. Anyway, I’ll have to try it before offering an opinion.

I found About Face 2.0 at Munich’s Computer Bookshop at the Obelisk. It’s rather dull and lengthy, but I want to read it so that I can help push the personas idea forward.

I’ll have very little cvs connectivity for the next few weeks, and there’s lots of things I’d like to do. I’d really like a month or so of uninterrupted time for GNOME/gtkmm hacking. Unfortunately it looks like my current contract will be extended until the end of the year, and I can’t say No to it without upsetting the agent.
