Recipes turns one year old

I’ve given a presentation today and explained that recipes turns one year old at this GUADEC in Manchester. That is of course nothing compared to GNOME, which turned 20, so we send our congratulations:

Our slides can be found here.

Summer recipes

I just did a release of GNOME recipes in time for GUADEC.

While this is a development release, I think it may be time to declare this version (1.6) stable. Therefore, I encourage you to try it out and let me know if something doesn’t work.

Here is a quick look at the highlights in this release.

Inline editing

Inline editing of ingredients has been completed. We provide completions for both units and ingredients.

Error handling

And if something goes wrong, we try to be helpful by pointing out the erroneous entry and explaining the required format.


The printed form of recipes has seen several small improvements. Fields like cuisine and season are now included, and the ingredients list is properly aligned in columns.


All lists of recipes can now be sorted by recency or by name.

If you happen to be in Manchester this weekend, you can learn more about GNOME recipes by coming to our talk.
