Last week I covered the new GNOME project of Nuntius, an effort to send tablet/smart-phone Android notifications to the GNOME desktop. There was a fair amount of interest in Nuntius, including many forum goers asking why they didn't use KDE-Connect, among other questions. Those questions have now been addressed.

Paolo Borelli and Ignacio Casal Quinteiro are the developers that did the original work on Nuntius as a way to experiment with Android development and sending of notifications over to the GNOME notification area of the desktop. In a new blog post by Ignacio, he explains they didn't use KDE-Connect for this functionality because they weren't aware of it. Likewise, they didn't use a standard protocol since this was their first dive into this type of development and were just exploring matters as they went.

If you want to learn more about their reasoning for other design elements, stop by Ignacio's blog.

GNOME 3.16 is being officially released later this month.
