A lot happened in #GNOME this week! 🚀

More Libadwaita design improvements, a new Text Editor color scheme chooser, new updates on Shell screenshot UI, new apps got ported to GTK4 / Libadwaita like "Contrast" or "Webtfont Kit Generator", ... and much more!


it's also using proper widgets instead of the fully hacked things we had in gtk3-rs, things got much better nowadays :)

It's mostly meant for developers that want to see what's possible to do with portals currently, test the library in a real case app, provide a proper example of how to use the various portals and also as a test case for a distributor.

I've been working on a little demo app for the rust portals library ashpd and I finally released it on Flathub.

Source code is at github.com/bilelmoussaoui/ashp

I started working on session verification for Fractal-next. Still a long way to go, but it's a start.

ashpd-demo looking great i guess ? i will hopefully find some time this week to finish up the latest remaining stuff and do a release

I've finally blogged about the dark style preference in GNOME. Took a lot more time to write about it than I expected. :)
