GNOME 2.14 & Stuff

GNOME 2.14 released!

After six months of hard work of contributors from all over this beaultiful planet, GNOME 2.14 is released! Big thanks to all the people who contributed to this awesome release! GNOME is powered by multitude!


I and Carol bought the recipes book. So, we tried to cook some nice home-made bread. Our plan was to prepare some basic french bread and fogazza. Well, this project really failed. The result was a lot of hard-definitely-not-tasty bread! Some days later, we prepared a delicious chocolate pie which made us keep believing that we’re capable of doing some nice food.

EOG and Zenity

I released EOG and Zenity 2.14.0 yesterday. Working on these litle GNOME modules has been very nice and funny. I’ll bring some 2.16 plans for them soon.


As most of you probably already know (from the front page), the III Fórum GNOME will happen as a community event of the 7th Fórum Internacional Software Livre (FISL) on April 19-22, at Porto Alegre/RS. FISL is the biggest free software event in Latin America. GNOME dudes, this is a very good motive to come to Brazil! For this 3rd edition, the Fórum GNOME will have talks from GNOME popstars Jeff “perky pants” Waugh and Nat Friedman and of course from other vivid brazilian contributors. See our official site.

GNOME Journal & Behind the Scenes

As you probably saw, I launched the Behind the Scenes series on the latest GNOME Journal issue. The idea is to bring to the public the “human” side of our community with funny and informative profiles from people who contribute to GNOME. I created a wiki page to organize ideas about the interview itself and the potential interviewee candidates. As always, I’m accepting contributions. GJ had more than 120.000 visits on march! See GJ stats page.

III Festival Software Livre Bahia

The III Festival Software Livre da Bahia is the event of the free software addicted/enthusiasts people from Bahia. It will happen on August 24-26 at Lauro de Freitas/BA, a city near Salvador. There’s an open call for papers (in portuguese). See the event website.

New Me

I’ve got some new glasses! Now I look like a modern designer! Good bye Harry Potter look! :-)

Nice web things

Two weeks ago I started to use some well-know services on web: Digg (story sharing), (bookmarks sharing) and (music profiling). See my profile here. The profile says that my favorite genres are jazz, acid jazz and brazilian music. Oh, that’s totally right! My latest listenings:

Lucas Rocha is just a brazilian guy who loves hacking and music. He lives in the frozen lands of Finland with his lovely wife Carol. He works for Nokia in the development of Hildon and Maemo. In his free time, he's a happy GNOME contributor. He has a mustache, a beard and big smile in his face.
