Give me a stopwatch and a map…

It looks my posts are as punctual and frequent as the GNOME releases… one every 6 months.

With GNOME set to be out in October (well, end of September, but bear with me) and including a new Maps application, we just needed a stopwatch

GUADEC was once again great and Brno turned out to be a beautiful (and hot!) location.

Clocks is a small pet project, with a tiny and clean codebase which makes it fun to work on, so during the conference I decided to rework the stopwatch and timer tools, which in 3.8 were a bit dull. After a few iterations with Allan, here is what will be in 3.10

Clocks 3.10Clocks 3.10

In the video you can also see that at start up a world clock for my current location appears automatically: this is thanks to the geolocation support implemented by Evgeny during his Summer of Code and which I still hope to sneak in for 3.10.
