Interesting addition to System Monitor

I just noticed this interesting addition to System Monitor

Although not particularly useful on my system it seems (it hasn’t picked up the hostname or distribution), the banner graphic down the side was what took me by surprise. I would link to the GNOME logo guidelines at this point for suggestions, but appears to be down again.

Update: Here it is:

Although, I suspect most distributions will just replace this graphic anyway?

Update 2: Corey filed a bug about this now. Looks like there are some quite strong opinions. v3

Lukáš Lommer has been helping out a lot with recently, including updating the site and writing patches. He’s also been writing about (amongst other things) some of the changes we’ve been making to the site. We’re now thinking of doing a “version 3” of the site, with all you favourite web 2.0 style features.

We have put some of our ideas on the wiki page, and Lukáš has sent a mail to the art-web mailing list. If you’re interested in helping and you’re a keen PHP developer, please get on the mailing list and let us know.


In case anyone wasn’t paying attention, we’re having a patch party tomorrow from 5PM UTC (that’s 6PM for most of Europe, and about lunch time for America). We will be going through all the un-responded bugs (129) and un-reviewed patches (89) in bugzilla, and making sure they’re up to date. This will also be the last chance to finish off any new features before the feature freeze on Monday.

If you’ve ever wanted to get involved in GNOME here is your chance! We really need more people to keep on top of things in the control center, so please pop along to #control-center on tomorrow and help out if you can.

It’s a mystery!

I have a very troublesome crasher in gnome-theme-manager right now. I would really appreciate if anyone could look over it with fresh eyes, as I still can’t figure it out. I have traced it back to something in gnome-theme-info.c, as somehow junk is getting put in the hash table of icon themes, but I can’t find out why or how.

The bug report is

, and it is fairly easy to reproduce.

Please please, someone help me solve this mystery!
