Hi to all.

Its been quiet for some time here, but this doesn’t mean we have not done anything. The good news are that we have up to now, nearly all the needed stuff built up. This means that except for some packages which need python3 and some others which are a bit more complicated to understand why they want to work , we are going forward to the ALPHA state.

Up to now we have nearly all things in place. There are both installers for i686 and x86_64 architectures ready. You can get them from here. For now this will install all the packages and give you a quite working gnome 3.8 desktop. There are many issues we are fixing and a lots of new packages from gnome 3.8.3 which need to be updated yet.

Despite that, the desktop is quite stable and usable. If you wish to help us, please do not hesitate to enter in touch with us on the various channels we have.
You can also fill up tickets at our sourceforge.net page and help us develop and build a better desktop.

If you are in the graphics or arts area, we also need your help. To say it better, the project is big, and there is plenty of space for anybody and any kind of work somebody wish to help with.
