GNOME Design Update, Part One

what to look forward to in Gnome3.6

Quote:
As always, the GNOME design crew have been hard at work of late. We helped to drive many of the changes you can see in the last GNOME release, including a new color picker, updated application designs, new scrollbars and updated spin button widgets. We havenít taken our foot off the gas though, and thereís plenty of work to report.

Itís an exciting time in GNOME design land right now. GNOME 3 is a big undertaking: weíre working to improve the entire experience, including everything from interface widgets and controls, through to applications and the core user experience. But we are making good progress, and more and more pieces are slotting into place. Slowly but surely, the design of the overall experience is starting to take shape.

It has been far too long since Iíve posted a GNOME design update. In fact, itís been so long that Iím dividing this update into two. In this first part, Iím going to detail design work that is focusing on the core GNOME user experience. The second post will cover application design updates, as well as application integration. Iíll post that update in the next few days.

Excitingly, many (though not all) of these new designs are planned as features for the next GNOME release. If you want to help implement any of these designs, just get in touch.

Lock and login screens
This is something that weíve wanted to do for some time. The lock screen plays much the same role as a screensaver Ė it is what is displayed when your device is idle. The difference between the lock screen and a screensaver is that the lock screen is really useful, of course, since it will display the time and updates about notifications (the notifications part will also be configurable).

notes

while there are notes apps for gnome, we donít yet have one that works well with gnome 3 look and feel. We think thereís an opportunity to provide a new app that is both highly integrated and more refined than what weíve had previously, and jimmacís stepped up to the plate to design a brand new application.

Design a brand new application. Not code one. Anyone see the blog post on planet fedora, about how F17 will corrupt flash drives because it looks like they're ready to be removed, but in fact there is still being data written to disk? The bug report goes like this "can't fix it because we don't have a design"... but it was fixed in previous version.."yeah but that was ugly and doesn't look good so we took it out" ... but this could lead to data loss ... "this isn't the place to discuss this!"

Could you provide the link to that bug report? I had a flash drive problem with F17 recently. But, it was just that only Fedora was unable to read that flash drive - Arch was able to - without hiccups. So, I did not investigate the issue very much.

By the way - how is that related to GNOME design though? I am not sure I understand (honestly)!
