I finally finished up and committed the search and sort features for art.gnome.org that I had been slowly working on the past 6 months. The site now has a way to search through all themes and backgrounds by name and/or author. The background and theme listing pages also now have the ability to be sorted by date and name to make browsing for what you want a little easier.

As for future enhancements to art.gnome.org, I'd like to make the focus of the site on system themes or meta themes instead of individual (gtk, metacity, etc) themes as it is now. This will integrate better with GNOME and the theme manager. Please email me with UI ideas/suggestions/mockups. We also need to work out a way to separate gtk2 themes and engines and find a way to list what gtk2 engines each theme on a.g.o requires, if any. Anyone looking to help, please contact me.

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted anything here. I've been busy working all summer doing hardware design and programming for a solar cell array.

In other news, I've decided that it's about time to do something about art.gnome.org. I've been working on some major changes for the last 4 months but haven't had time to finish them up and check them in. Hopefully this will get done this week.

After many long months, art.gnome.org has finally been finished.

I moved my GNOME 2 FAQ to the gnome.org server and added a few new sections and a list of all of the 3rd party apps that I know of that have been ported to gtk2/gnome2. The new address is http://www.gnome.org/~aldug/gnome2/

Over the past few days I have compiled a Gnome2 FAQ for users new to gnome 2.0. It's available at http://www.astrolinux.com/gnome2/. Comments, questions and corrections are welcome.

I've been building gnome2 every night with the vicious build scripts and it's getting pretty cool. Check out screenshots at http://www.astrolinux.com/stuff/gnome2/. Nice work gnome developers

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
