I was kinda expecting Budgie Desktop View development to span a few days. Nope. Last night I implemented Drag & Drop and today I already implemented the items for 1.2. Ahead of schedule substantially so gonna be working on usysconf-dconf instead!

Stream with Bryan is in about 1h30min! Be sure to head on over to or use the multistream link to watch us both!

GTK 4.0 was just released by and I've been tinkering with the demos. I'm excited to see the next generation of this toolkit finally arrive and look forward to experimenting with it more for the GTK4 port of budgie-desktop-view! Congrats all those involved in this release!

Was busy with Linux 5.10 yesterday so wasn't able to get around to this, but now cooking Firefox 84.0! Release notes aren't up yet so if you want some coverage on it, check out 9to5Linux's coverage of it at 🎉

Linux 5.10, as well as updates to firmware, nvidia-390-glx-driver, open-vm-tools, openrazer, and virtualbox are now in the unstable repo. Assuming no blockers, should get landed into the stable repo this Friday. If you use the unstable repo, we encourage you to update and test!

I finally settled on @Solus for my desktop a month or two ago and it's been rock solid and a joy to use. The community is welcoming and I haven't got a single qualm about it. Certainly my distro for 2020 and beyond 👍


Solus :budgie: :solus: boosted

Cooking 5.10 for @Solus at the moment. Looking forward to pushing this out to unstable in the next few hours. 🎉

We are proud to announce our newest iteration on our flagship desktop environment, 10.5.2, with a diverse range of new features and bug fixes! :budgie:

Breaking prior record of 1836 tracked jobs on the repo server during this sync with 1988 (few jobs completed before I could take screenshot) 🏆

Note: Doesn't mean that's how many packages changed, just how many deltas for them and their sub-packages we're creating. Still though!
