Update on @BuddiesOfBudgie merch. Everything is set up, just waiting for Spreadshirt to approve one of the designs on the EU store that randomly got flagged, despite just being the Budgie bird with the circular background :D
Once that is approved, U.S. and EU merch launch!
Not saying I'm going through the process of creating @BuddiesOfBudgie merch.
But I'm going through the process of creating Budgie merch. 👀
Buddies of Budgie is now on OpenCollective, opening the door to financial contributions to enable a wide range of opportunities, such as compensated development, triaging, translations, hardware acquisitions, and more! 🎉
I added a few more goodies into Budgie Control Center.
I've ported over scaling patches that are typically only in Manjaro and Ubuntu's GNOME Control Center into Budgie Control Center, so if the OS has a Mutter with patched X11 fractional scaling, those options are now exposed.
Additionally updated Details to show Budgie version, rather than the GNOME version.
I just pushed a minor refinement to our GNOME Control Center fork for the Budgie 10 series, but we moved screen locking related functionality into the Displays panel.
Ya know...where the rest of the Display / Screen stuff is.
Also huge props to fossfreedom from the Ubuntu Budgie project for all the rebranding, gresource updating, etc. that he has done. Even got some niceties in like proper distro branding, which I can tell you as someone that's needed to patch that historically, is a big deal.
Significant Notifications Server rewrite just landed in Budgie Desktop thanks to EbonJaeger ❤️ This work enables us to provide a more generic notification system that can be leveraged not just in Raven, but in other parts of Budgie if desired!

To reduce user confusion on some functionality in GNOME Control Center, as well as ensuring that libadwaita and other theming-related issues aren't introduced, we have decided to maintain a temporary fork for Budgie 10 series.
As a reminder, we will have our own control center for Budgie 11 series that is not based on any existing solutions.
@BuddiesOfBudgie You will also notice that I only assigned myself to one of those items. Everything else is open for contributions from others! But that internal theme has been a thorn in my side for a long enough, I want the personal pleasure of fixing it xD
