Back to Helsinki. GUADEC was great but you already know that. Also, in no specific order: Actually my preferred topic of discussion was freedesktop.org and how to help the critical projects there. GTK+ 3.0 will come and break. Finally. I liked how the GNOME Release Team was there shoulder by shoulder. Chris presenting Gecko/Firefox and Alp presenting WebKit [...]

Summarizing things said here and there… Nokia is investing now more than ever in GTK+ and [...]

Thank Baris GUADEC is approaching and I will get a dose of Mediterranean again. You know, the smell and the rhythm.

I’m so glad lcuk has published this liqbase overview video. When Gary showed us his stuff in LinuxTag we were impressed. I told him: the world needs to know. He was totally humble, still calling himself a newbie in maemo development…
