Apparently there’s a new mailing list for release reminders, so here’s a late tarball for gnome-backgrounds in the usual place. Just a few translation updates, nothing more exciting.

I am still undecided on whether to gather together some new backgrounds for the GNOME 2.12 release, so if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

  1. I was going to ask about SVG Wallpapers too, it seems like a great idea but I cannot understand why it hasn’t happened yet. A lot of the abstract artwork people use for wallpapers looks so much like vector graphics I’m sure the idea must have occured to a lot of people (every time I see the mandrake screensaver artwork I wonder if it is available as SVG). I was thinking SVG Wallpapers could be made once at 1600×1200 and scaled up/down cleanly and efficiently as needed.

    Perhaps the Artists of encouraged to create some wallpapers
    and the Inkscapers at Deviant Art have been creating lots of great work for the Inkscape splash screens so they might also be interested in creating SVG wallpapers.

  2. I think there were some SVG wallpapers in gnome-backgrounds at one point, but I’m not quite sure where they ended up. A lot of backgrounds were taken out with the 2.10 release though when it was tidied up.

    I think there may be SVG versions of several of the “translucent” wallpapers, so I’ll have a look into getting hold of them and replacing the PNG versions where appropriate.
