News from GNOME Shell land

Jul 14, 2011, 11:00 (6 Talkback[s])

"The GNOME Shell crew are busy cooking up a tonne of improvements and new features for the next release. Plenty of things have already landed and there's much more in the pipeline, so I thought it was time for a bit of a review of what's been happening. This is also a nice sneak preview of what's coming in 3.2. :) Integrated chat and messaging

Amazing work going on here, largely thanks to Guillaume Desmottes. From 3.2, GNOME 3 will have fully integrated chat and messaging. This means that the system will be able to automatically log you into chat and messaging services without you needing to launch a separate application, and you will be able to take calls, reply to chat and room invitations as well as file transfers from the shell itself. Much of this has already been implemented, including a decent chunk of backend work."
