Solus Budgie Next Desktop integrated with GNOME Session

Solus Budgie Next Desktop released with GNOME Session integration, with multilib update. Budgie Desktop is a lightweight GTK3 desktop session and its the default desktop environment for Evolve OS, a new desktop Linux distribution released early this year

Work has progressed well on the rewrite of Budgie.

  • The rewrite is now integrated into GNOME Session and uses its phase initialization system, so Budgie starts in the panel initialization phase and the window manager in the WindowManager phase.
  • Information such as whether dark theme is enabled, your widget theme, and icon theme are now integrated into Raven.

Also, work on the panel editor has now begun. A screenshot is available below.

As you may (or may not, in which case you should really tune in more) know multilib has been a large item on our path to 1.0. Ikey has been working extensively this week on the multi-stage process for landing 32-bit libraries, and we are happy to report that 32-bit enabled GCC is now landing in the repositories.
