Gnome 3.32 is released and with it some new good things

Mar/14/2019 1 min read by Marco Monteiro

One of the reasons that made me change from the ubuntu version of gnome to the default one was to actually be able to get the updates for it faster. As of yesterday the new version was out. Version 3.32 contains six months of work by the GNOME community and includes many improvements, performance improvements and new features.

This release features a refreshed visual style ranging from an entirely new set of app icons to improvements to the user interface style. Many of the base style colors have been saturated, giving them a more vivid, vibrant appearance. Buttons are more rounded and have a softer “shadow” border. Switches no longer use the explicit ON and OFF text, instead using color to indicate state.

Check the release notes here.

I haven't really upgraded but I'm really excited about doing it.

My blog now lives at blog.marcomonteiro.net

Just dropping by to tell you that I moved my blog from a self hosted wordpress blog to a tumblr blog. And now I’m using a sub-domain for my blog.

The main reason behing this decision was just the fact that I was not happy with my hosting and therefore I’m moving all my stuff away from them.

Tumblr looks like a good free option to me.

ps: I’m sorry if all the feed are going crazy and they apear all marked as unread. That’s because all the posts have a new link now, there’s no need to update your feed though.

GitHub, Reactor, and v2.0.3

Aug/22/2011 1 min read by Marco Monteiro

If you are following CICON 2011 yesterday, then you no doubt already heard from the Reactor team: CodeIgniter is now using Git for source control, and has moved its home to GitHub. Also, CodeIgniter ...Core“ is not longer being publicly maintained. CodeIgniter ...Reactor“ is CodeIgniter, so we are dropping that suffix. In short: CodeIgniter is the framework, and Reactor is our community driven development program.

Lastly, version 2.0.3 was released today, download it here or from the release tag at GitHub. For full details of our switch to Git, head over to the EllisLab blog.
