Ubuntu Feisty is shaping up to be a nice release. I’ve been running it on my main machine since the start of the year and am relishing in the daily updates. I ran edgy from the first beta and it was great watching the new updates gradually mold Edgy into the release it became. And now that is happening in Feisty.
Yesterday, for example, we got the new GNOME Control Center.
Gorgeous isn’t it. Right now though.. it sure is annoying for me because i’m programmed to go in a sub menu and down a bit to get to synaptic! I think it would be cool if all of the applets were integrated into here. So that they had the same feel to them.. It feels kind of wrong that yet another window pops up. So then the control system would be like the “Manage my Computer” option on Windows, but way way way better.
I reported my first bug on launchpad, the python-gpod bindings in feisty don’t actually provide any bindings! (#79221) Someone beat me to it.. so it got marked as duplicate irksome that there is a package that is purposefully disabled like this… Grr. This and my general tiredness stalled my work on the iPod stuff for Conduit. It was made worse by the fact that I had the wrong versions of libglib-dev and couldn’t figure out how to get the right ones It seems the UK mirror is lagging a bit behind the “main” server? But hey, it’s only an alpha :-)!
