Gnote Performance

leave a comment »

Gnote becomes slow at creating, renaming and deleting notes if you have a large collection of notes, and users find this annoying.

So I spent some time this weekend trying to see what is actually going on and came up with a couple of patches — 660653 and 660663. I will be testing these over the next few couple of days to make sure that I did not break anything, and hopefully things will be much more snappy now.

Aurimas Černius is the new Gnote maintainer.

Aurimas has been doing awesome work over the last couple of years, and while I was not doing justice to the project he kept up with a steady stream of patches. Right now he is working on porting Gnote to Gtk+ 3.x and GNOME 3, which will hopefully improve the experience on Fedora 15.
