Matt, That's exactly the way it happens. People hang out on IRC all day, and we do schedule meetings everytime one is requested. We discuss things in gtk-devel too. The reason more cross-platform support doesn't happen is simple, none of the developers run Windows or Mac, so none is taking care of those backends. It's hardly going to happen unless people step up to do the work.

And not the kingdom of Spain unfortunately (unfortunately because I miss it and because it's still a kingdom). In a few months (not sure about specific dates yet, probably in early 2015) I will be moving back to the United... Continue reading

That branch is a work in progress. As per GObject, I think Evo would be a hard place to start if you want to learn. I would recommend you to have a look at these documents/tutorials: https://developer.gnome.org/gobject/stable/howto-gobject.html https://developer.gnome.org/gnome-devel-demos/unstable/c.html.en And if you think you get the handle of it feel free to show up on IRC and I'll be more than happy to assist you on where to start :-)

Hey Alexander, There's mainly two reasons, one is that Thunderbird is going end of life from Mozilla, so they are only doing security bugfixes, a lot of corporate environments have custom POP/IMAP email setups so webmail is not an option for a lot of them so we need a mail client for Fedora and RHEL. The other reason is that a lot of customers of Red Hat use Microsoft Exchange and Evolution is the only email client with decent MS Exchange support through EWS. Check out Fabiano Fidencio's blog for the progress on EWS support in Evo http://blog.fidencio.org/

We are working on a WebKit2 composer/renderer for 3.12, if you want to help in that front let me know :-)

Yeah I was about to comment, though evolution-exchange/mapi is somewhat deprecated, evolution-data-server is not marked as done, so help there would be more than welcome!

Hey Cody, The issue is that such property can only be set manually by a GitHub sysadmin, those were added manually by them, it's a bit of a long story, will set it right eventually.

GNOME has just launched its official GitHub mirror! This is an idea that has been in the back of my head for quite a while, my motivation started after I found out that someone fixed my webp pixbuf loader out... Continue reading

Hello Julien, Right now 3.8 was the last stable release and 3.10 is coming up soon, nothing too exciting about those two releases. All that I mentioned in my post are plans.

Depression and hopelessness are things that are within itself, one can be happy in the tinniest place of earth if one makes the effort. I've been in enough places to know how to handle that.
