A long-overdue

Hello! I'm Ivan, I live in Moscow, Russia, and study in the MSU.

In my free time I hack on various FOSS projects and play (vertical scrolling) rhythm games (4K, 7K, SV, LN, bars). My favorite programming language is . My main is Quaver, which I am helping to develop.

I use (), (), .

I'm quite interested in tool-assisted speedrunning. I've created tools for Half-Life 1 and studied it extensively.

I've also made a Minecraft mod.

@liw It reminds me of the old joke: Debian has three versions, obsolete, boring, and broken :-)

Fully automatic repaint scheduling on Mutter shows signs of life! This is weston-presentation-shm. Look at f2p. f is frame callback (application, now's a good time to draw), p is when that buffer was physically shown on screen. f2p is 4–5 ms, which is less than 1000 / 144 = 6.9 ms = one frame. Less than a frame of input/presentation latency with zero configuration. :)

We're excited to announce the launch of GNOME Circle! This new initiative supports apps and libraries that use the GNOME platform. Learn more about how GNOME Circle works in our news article:

If you’re interested in gtk-rs, I just landed initial support for composite templates in gtk4-rs!

If you want to see how to use it, take a look at the example here:

Did Matthias's talk during the Linux App Summit make you want to try the GTK4 demo? Jordan explains how you can give it a go in just a few steps.

@bugaevc I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux,
is in fact, GN...

I'm very happy with the progress made on GTK4 Rust bindings lately. I would appreciate if more people gave them a try to report broken/missing stuff. The bindings are available at & the docs at

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.

Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?

The EU Council is pushing for encryption backdoors to messenger apps such as WhatsApp and Signal to fight terrorism (German article):

Despite the fact that errors of investigation in Austrian authorities had made the attack possible in the first place and not a lack of digital surveillance powers. Politicians must start to understand that more surveillance will not lead to more security. That's why we fight any attempt for an encryption backdoor:

- I've shot myself in the foot and my foot doesn't work anymore
- Why would you shoot in your foot?
- Have you seen feet, it boggles me that you don't want that, there are other reasons which you cannot comprehend, you're implying i didnt deserve freedom

Now that there exists way more open hardware, it would be nice if we could come together and agree on a symbol for the super key. As a software platform, it’s not practical to use the company logo of every hardware company

I'm surprised at how Archive Manager consistently manages to do the exact opposite of what I want
