GNOME Calendar added to Fedora

I packaged Calendar for Fedora and today it’s approved for including in Fedora repositories. I’m building it right now.

It will be included only for Fedora 22+.

GNOME Builder added to Fedora

Thanks to Mathieu Bridon, David King who worked on packaging Builder for Fedora. It will be included in Fedora 22 (right now it’s in rawhide).

GNOME Calendar search-view redesigned

Georges Basile Stavracas Neto spent last days with rewriting search in GNOME Calendar. I tested this improvements as far as I could.

So, what has changed? So many, Georges added sorting, replaced page with search results to GtkPopover and much more. Just see screenshots.

Building GNOME Calendar on Fedora

If you tried to build GNOME Calendar on Fedora you’ve got error like this:

  CCLD     gnome-calendar
gcal-event-widget.o: In function `gcal_event_widget_is_multiday':
/home/brain/git/GNOME/gnome-calendar/src/gcal-event-widget.c:1033: undefined reference to `icaltime_days_in_year'

This is because bug in libical and fixed in 1.0.1 release (Fedora 20+ provides 1.0). What do you want? Update libical and libical-devel to new release. You can just enable my COPR repository (ignatenkobrain/gnome-calendar) and update/install that packages. Also you can install latest release version of gnome-calendar for repo, but it’s under heavy development and I’d recommend to try it using jhbuild.

P.S. We are going to have GNOME Calendar in Fedora 22+. You can track review request in RHBZ.

GNOME MultiWriter 3.15.1 released

Richard Hughes released first version of GNOME MultiWriter. He made post about project, but in release more cool features and changes.

GNOME MultiWriter can be used to write an ISO file to multiple USB devices at once. Once an .img or .iso file has been chosen it can be written to an unlimited number of USB devices simultaneously. Supported drive sizes are between 1Gb and 32Gb.

MultiWriter was originally written as part of the ColorHug project but was split off as an independent application in 2015.

People have used MultiWriter in a few different ways:

  • To copy a specific ISO for QA testing for a small number of users
  • To share a LiveUSB image of GNOME for a code sprint
  • To create hundreds of USB flash drives for the ColorHug project

Sure, package was added in Fedora 21+. You can install it from koji (f21, f22) right now and install just via yum/dnf in the near future.
