GNOME 3.8 Updates

  • As Piñeiro mentioned last week, Matthias sent a email about the fact that we have not-too-many weeks before API freeze.
  • So, please if you have any accessibility change requiring API change, take that into account.
  • Piñeiro is still looking to that gnome-shell crash related with focus changes.
  • Joanie was not able to reproduce it, Piñeiro has some problems compiling the stack.
  • Piñeiro will take a look to the clutter-gtk issue, and see if that would require any API change.
  • Joanie added the much-requested list-of dialog feature to Orca. She is still finishing it, but it's committed to master for users to try.
  • Joanie and Matthias got the egg-list-box accessibility issues sorted out and fixed. This is important because four new panels in gnome-control-center use this widget.
  • Joanie is currently looking into (and will finish) implementing support in Orca for the GtkLevelBar. She found one in the wild in gnome-disk-utility.

  • LINK:

  • Mike has been trying to track down memory/ref count leaks. Several are fixed with pygobject 3.7.5 and a recent at-spi2-core. There is still at least one ref count leak left (either in pygobject, at-spi2-core, or orca), so still need to track that down.
  • These last weeks there were several news and updates related to the new GNOME classic mode. Juanjo is worried about the migration path for the current fallback mode users.
  • Piñeiro thinks that the main focus is on the main "GNOME experience" and that we would need to wait until the situation became more stable, but agreed that is a good idea to not forget about this.


W3C Update

Miscellaneous Time

  • FOSDEM was last weekend.
  • Piñeiro gave a talk about accessibility, specifically about the "accessibility on/off setting is no more - a11y always on" thing.
  • More or less at the same time, the a11y call for bids was announced.

Action Items

  • (No new action items)

Ongoing / Rolled-Over

  • Joanie:
    • Do a full evaluation of the accessibility breakage in Evolution 3.6 and file bugs accordingly.
  • Juanjo:
    • Take a look at the current a11y material in order to make an action plan.
  • Piñeiro:
    • Take a look at clutter-gtk's accessibility support.
    • Create some usability-configurability related bugs, using Bryen's mail as a starting point.
    • Update the AtkObject:children-changed documentation, as this could be also used on ATK implementors.
