Through a message on its own block and of the captures carried out by Alan Days within his own web space, the developer Georges Stavracas shows us the latest work related to the control panel of the keyboard, within this same environment. In fact, the work has been carried out over several months, starting from a re-engineering of the GNOME core itself to ending in each of the system components, which are gradually it will expand when version 3.22 is reached later this year.
Being a work still in development, it is likely to change over time but not in a radical way. Let’s take a look at the main changes introduced.
Although perhaps one of the system components we notice the least, the GNOME keyboard control panel is undergoing a reengineering process as a result of the evolution of the core itself in this environment. It will be the first of many changes that we will see over the coming months but for now, the work done is very good, with a clear completion, intuitive and clear mobile trends in a period when desktop interfaces and mobile phones are beginning to melt.
If you’ve already seen the video we showed you in the header, you’ll have noticed this first big tab change. Dialog boxes, buttons, and panels have also been redesigned to make their overall behavior much more consistent with the rest of the system.
Internally, Stavracas gives us an idea of the changes that have taken place in the source code of the environment:
- New programming tools have been developed with which GTK + and GLib have made a notable difference in terms of code readability and the final quality of the work.
- The work carried out with GObjects has surprised the programmer himself, not only by the new functionalities he provides, but also by his ability to document his own code.
What do you think of the changes introduced within the keyboard menu? Do you like the restructuring you are doing in GNOME?
