The GNOME project has, after a period of contemplation, put forward aproposal to move to a GitLab installation on GNOME’s infrastructure.”We are confident that GitLab is a good choice for GNOME, and wecan’t wait for GNOME to modernise our developer experience with it. It willprovide us with vastly more effective tools, an easier landing fornewcomers, and lots of opportunities to improve the way that we work. We’reready to start working on the migration.” Thiswiki page describes the idea in detail.

A text editor is at the core of the developer’s toolbox, but many other useful pieces of software coexist along with it, such as Git and GitHub. Starting today, Atom adds Git and GitHub integration directly in Atom via the GitHub package. This is a new core package included with Atom and is available right now in today’s 1.18 beta release. Be sure to check out github.atom.io for more information!

A Bright Future
The Thunderbird Council is optimistic about the future. With the organizational question settled, we can focus on the technical challenges ahead. Thunderbird will remain a Gecko-based application at least in the midterm, but many of the technologies Thunderbird relies upon in that platform will one day no longer be supported. The long term plan is to migrate our code to web technologies, but this will take time, staff, and planning. We are looking for highly skilled volunteer developers who can help us with this endeavor, to make sure the world continues to have a high-performance open-source secure email client it can rely upon.
