    Hawaii Desktop Environment 0.1.92 Released!

    Hello everyone!

    As a minor Maui Project contributor, I was extremely excited to see some of the progress that's been made over this way in regards to the Hawaii Desktop Environment that will be used for Maui. Pier posted up a YouTube video today to show off the progress that's been made.

    Hawaii Shell is now in a very good shape, it has the most important things a shell needs:

    • Application launcher
    • Panels
    • PolicyKit integration
    • Notifications
    • Lock screen

    More features will come from here to Hawaii 0.2.0.

    From clicking on the download at the bottom of this page. (It didn't redirect for me on first try).

    Announcement on the mailing lists earlier:

    "Hello everyone,

    The first public snapshot of Hawaii Shell is available.
    This release is limited to Hawaii Shell and the Weston plugin not the whole desktop.

    The strategy is to release one module at a time.

    For this release 30 issues were closed [1] and there are 215 commits between 0.1.0 and 0.1.92 [2] and 25 commits for the Weston plugin [3].


    A lot of progress were made in the last couple of months, including:

    - Improved multi screen support
    - Theming QML API
    - A lot of glitches in the AppChooser fixed
    - Modal dialogs
    - Lock screen
    - Logout, lock, restart, power off and suspend actions

    Themes can be written using QML which is a lot easier than the previous approach inherited from Plasma involving SVG images.
    The default theme is builtin for now, for 0.2.0 I plan to make external themes loadable but there's no API stability promise yet.

    You can build Hawaii sources from git. [4]



    Make sure you build qtwayland stable branch and revert 10652f8dd675aa0d12c11597c165831c8ba0b8b4 otherwise you won't see icons.

    If you are running Archlinux there are binary packages available. [5]

    Hawaii Shell is now in a very good shape, it has the most important things a shell needs:

    - Application launcher
    - Panels
    - PolicyKit integration
    - Notifications
    - Lock screen

    More features will come from here to Hawaii 0.2.0.


    Thus I am going to use Hawaii everyday at home, to better spot issues.

    Re: Hawaii Desktop Environment 0.1.92 Released!

    Looks like its not even a beta.

    A complete desktop environment is needed for testing.

    Without it, its just desktop vaporware.

    We're simply letting people know progress is being made; we had another thread floating around and people asked to be kept updated.

    Regarding your assumption regarding the project being vaporware, I'm inclined to disagree with the statement. You can easily check out the released modules thus far for Hawaii and check out Maui thus far on a Live CD with no issues. Nothing has been announced with nothing to show or made available to the public and there has been no developmental delays, and the process is completely transparent.

    Like always, you're more than welcome to stop by the mailing list and IRC and see what else is being worked on that's not readily available to the public yet.

    We do appreciate you taking the time to stop by, though. Hopefully we'll make some progress that will pique your interest towards Hawaii and Maui.

    I do wish your project the best.

    But I do think reviewers want to see something that they can compare against current distros.

    Keep us updated on your progress!

    The download is live 64bit only, no install yet.
    There is instructions on how to run it with Arch Linux, its also 64bit only.
