I was busy with other things when 3.2 was released, hence my only writing about it now. Having just started using the new release full time, I have to say that I’m really impressed with how it turned out. The rate of progress since the 3.0 has been extremely high.

3.2 was an important release, in my opinion. There’s a ton of minor fixes and incremental improvements in there, as well as some bigger changes, such as the new login dialogs.

Clocking on

This blog has been quiet for a little while now. I’ve been busy doing other things, mainly finishing up my studies, which are now complete (woo hoo!) I also took a well-earned break. Now I’m back, starting today as a member of the Red Hat desktop team.

I’m hugely excited to be taking on this role. It will enable me to step up a gear in my work on GNOME, and I’m also looking forward to working for one of the biggest supporters of upstream FOSS. So, watch this space!
