  • Hi there !

    Did you follow the part of the Librem 5/Purism work of libhandy :

    "The aim of The handy library is to help with developing UI for mobile devices using GTK+/GNOME."

    I understand that your goal is unity, but do you think it could lead to some convergences opportunities ?

    And again, thank you very much for your work !



  • What will be the future of the Ubuntu UI Toolkit (Ubuntu Components)? Will it get a new maintainer or will it become deprecated? Are Qt Quick Controls the future? For app developers its important to know which toolkit is best to use for the future 🙂



  • Any UT@FOSDEM activity planned?



  • Hi everybody
    So my question Is
    The openstore Is cool but have a big desorder that apps, example Facebook app ( existing that 5-6 ir More apps ) and the apps don't have (oficial app or something)
    So how about the openstore Will have More order?



  • I am curious about the Camera app. What functionality does it have or lack, compared with Android? I mean focus, compression algorithms, sharp mask, noise filter etc?



  • @krille @zlamalp makes the same point above



  • How's the progress of the new Unity 8 and mir? When will it land in the edge or even in the dev channel?



  • @zubozrout What do you mean Connectivity API is "not fully working" exactly?



  • @dobey Sorry, I was pointing this specifically at Flo who probably knows what I am talking about from the Telegram dev group.

    Anyway, for certain I should have made this more clear. I meant the following two issues we've bumped into:

    1. "limitedBandwith" property seems to be static, not changing based on the connection type.
    2. On start, "online" property is always set to false and only changes if connection actually changes. Afterwards this seem pretty much reliable but you can't get correct connection state info until you start the app and then change networks.

    I am not sure how "limitedBandwith" behaved when Canonical was still developing Ubuntu Touch as I was never using this but I am pretty sure I had issues with the "online" property even at that time. Sadly I can't remember if it was this issue or something else.



    1. What is the biggest misunderstanding that folks have about the project and what should be the communities response when they encounter it from others?

    2. What are one or two challenges (technical or otherwise) that if solved would be a huge game changer to help the project by leaps and bounds?


  • Infrastructure
