Tobias Mueller is a lead member of the GNOME Bugsquad for the last years and thus responsible for managing the bug database as well as the team around it. He is involved in deciding on effective policies for the bug database, actually dealing with the bugs in the database and recruiting new members who will help triaging. He also got elected to the Board of Directors in 2012 where he serves the GNOME Foundation to achieve their goals of creating and distributing great Free Software products. Besides being a Free Software and GNOME lover, Tobias is involved in the German security research community around the Chaos Computer Club. Topics of interest include Platform- and System-Security, Cryptography and Security Protocols.
With the GNOME 3.16 release in April many visible improvements were delivered to users around the world.
While many people already excitedly use GNOME 3 with the new user experience, some feature of the new and elegant desktop like a new update notification or ebook support are not yet wildly known. We also did many things on the plumbing layer such as allowing GNOME to run Wayland.
The talk will introduce to some of the design philosophies inherent in GNOME 3 as well as the main changes brought to users and developers. Also, since GNOME 3.16 is another step of a long lasting incrementally improved user experience, the future of GNOME's development will be speculated on.
