Hello everyone,

As an official kick-off for the 0.108 development cycle [1], we have
released a new *UNSTABLE* version of Sugar. This first 0.107.x release
includes a fair amount of changes and fixes, so *please* help us testing it!

Tarballs:
http://download.sugarlabs.org/sources/sucrose/glucose/sugar/sugar-0.107.0.tar.xz
http://download.sugarlabs.org/sources/sucrose/glucose/sugar-toolkit-gtk3/sugar-toolkit-gtk3-0.107.0.tar.xz
http://download.sugarlabs.org/sources/sucrose/glucose/sugar-artwork/sugar-artwork-0.107.0.tar.xz
http://download.sugarlabs.org/sources/sucrose/glucose/sugar-datastore/sugar-datastore-0.107.0.tar.xz
http://download.sugarlabs.org/sources/sucrose/glucose/sugar-runner/sugar-runner-0.107.0.tar.xz

The major goal for the final 0.108 release is to get collaboration fixed,
but we just recently got some progress thanks to Sam and Walter, therefore
I have updated the roadmap [1] with new deadlines to make sure we have time
to work on this. Note that the work needed to reach this goal is not
trivial, therefore, I am willing to be flexible with our deadlines for this
cycle, depending on the progress.

Martin.

There isn't a change list or release notes for users?

All I can see is a highly technical

Sure, there's also the commit logs of the (many) git repositories, but
they are even more technical.

Available now are packages for testing of Sugar 0.107.0

http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/0.108/Testing

These are 0.107.0 plus some cherry-picked patches;

- in About my Computer show serial number for computers other than the
OLPC XO,

- don't stop a shutdown, restart, or logout just because an activity
is not responding.

Just a thought,
To the Powers That Be:

Given the recent Fedora F23 branching, would now be a good time for
Fedora's "rawhide" to make the jump to using 0.107 for testing with SOAS?
That should keep an eye on the future F24 release and what might crop up in
between.

thanks for reading,

Jerry

This is now in Fedora 24, sorry for the delay in pushing this.

I see "Catch up with more Gtk changes." as a goal too, the changes for
WebKit2 would be useful in this list, this affects only Browse but it
means we end up shipping two WebKit stacks which are LARGE! It might
be as simple as just detecting new bindings and doing "if v2 import X
else import y" for the bindings, I don't know webkit though :)

Hi Peter,

For porting browse activity, we need upstream changes. Part of them are
written, but not the bindings. We need a new api to save and restore
state. I should chase that up at some point.

Otherwise, the port will be very easy.

I'm not sure why we ship webkit2 though, because I'm not sure anyone uses
it.

Thanks,
Sam

There's things in sugar-toolkit-gtk3 that use it.

Oh yes web activities use it. Sorry about that.
