Phoronix: GNOME 3.11.2 Has Many Changes
The GNOME 3.11.2 development release made it out a few days ago and with it comes many new features as developers work towards the stable GNOME 3.12 release in March...
Look at the OpenBSD crew, they managed to port 3.10 over before most distros offered it in their repositories, and without logind support.
So we'll be seeing Gnome on non-Linux for a while yet
Looks good, on paper, but considering the piss poor state of the 3.10 branch in Debian I expect GNOME 3.12 to hit experimental broken into a half-usable installation for about 6 months after its release, like very other 3.x GNOME release.
How about first letting people build a .plist/xml list of pathways stored in a shared preferences locally that allows one to reference their own workflow of photos to be visible as Desktop wallpapers? That would seem obvious.Integrate Facebook photos in GNOME Photos
Status: in development.
Currently GNOME Online Accounts supports Facebook to access photos, also a GNOME Online Miner for Facebook photos has been developed using the GFBGraph library, which is a GObject library to access the Facebook Graph API. We should allow the user to view his Facebook photos from Photos.

I have nothing against Systemd as an "init", but I hate their bully-methods to get it on every system.
Also, learn to ignore Honton. He's worse than BO$$, and that's saying something. If you try to ask him a direct question, he'll try to answer it with either unsupported data from his head (AKA opinions), or deflect it with a "Gnome > KDE" post (yes, on threads that have nothing to do with KDE) *shrug*
I said I hated their methods to force people to use it. There's a difference. I suggest you learn to read.
Also, I love how you slipped "Hating Systemd is like hating Linux" in there, like they have anything to do with one another, like the Linux kernel cares which init system you use. I've got a friend who uses an init system they wrote themselves in BASH. They recently had to switch to eudev though, since udev (DESPITE RUNNING JUST FINE) required Systemd to be installed on their computer.
Odd how a piece of software requires another piece of software that it doesn't seem to call to in any way...
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux....9/focus=187553On OpenBSD we just dropped the features that need systemd for now. There was some talk about porting some
systemd interfaces but the path GNOME is currently taking made us stop for now since it seems clearer each
day that systemd will be a hard requirement at some point (not just 'some' interfaces). Even if they do not
call it a hard requirement, you will loose 1/2 of what makes GNOME interesting which would render it
useless to us.
So for now it works ok enough I would say, but in the middle term, I don't see any future for !linux+systemd in
GNOME. While some people are really opened about keeping fallback code for ConsoleKit or portability
patches, some don't care at all or are even getting in our way on purpose.
Don't get me wrong, Gnome can be dependent on what they want, I don't care. But they should just stop with the obvious lies about portability and how they are not dependent on systemd. If they don't have the balls to do that they should at least bring those developers back in the line that are actively going into the way of Gnome's self declared goals. They can't have the cake and it eat, but in their case it seems that the cake is a lie.
