GUADEC 2017 in Manchester

Yesterday I booked housing and conference tickets for GUADEC 2017 in Manchester, so in July I am flying from Oslo to Manchester, meet other Free Software hackers from the GNOME Project, and fly back to Oslo via Malaga. It will be my only international trip this year.

Porting GNOME Internet Radio Locator 9.9.x to GTK+ 3.0

GNOME Internet Radio Locator 9.9.x was released in March 2017 and I have begun porting the program to GTK+ 3.0.

The new release ships with KCED (http://www.centralia.edu/kced/).

The initial GTK+ 3.0, libchamplain and GNOME Maps port of GNOME Internet Radio Locator is not yet functioning as expected, but the software tree is building.

Fedora Core 25 package is now available for version 9.9.1 (GTK+ 2.0): girl-9.9.1-1.fc25.x86_64.rpm

Fedora Core 25 package is now available for version 9.9.0 (GTK+ 3.0): girl-9.9.0-1.fc25.x86_64.rpm

Ubuntu 17.04 package is now available for version 9.9.1 (GTK+ 2.0): girl_9.9.1-1_amd64.deb

Ubuntu 17.04 package is now available for version 9.9.0 (GTK+ 3.0): girl_9.9.0-1_amd64.deb

Source package is now available for version 9.9.1 (GTK+ 2.0): girl-9.9.1.tar.xz

Source package is now available for version 9.9.0 (GTK+ 3.0): girl-9.9.0.tar.xz

After initial work on the GTK+ 3.0 port in GIRL 9.9.0, I realized that many people still depend on the GIRL 9.8.0 branch on GTK+ 2.0 with local stations, built automatically from git.gnome.org, so I decided to release 9.9.0 with initial GTK+ 3.0 support and backport GIRL 9.9.1 to GTK+ 2.0 in GIRL 9.9.1 with details about the GTK+ 3.0 port in GIRL 9.9.0. More details about the GTK+ 3.0 port is available from https://git.gnome.org/browse/girl/tree/GNOME3

Radio retransmitters MUST use GTK+ 2.0 (9.9.1) and not use GIRL
9.9.0, because this GTK+ 3.0 port not yet supports audio playback.
