=== Paris Developer Summit in Review ===

The Ubuntu Developer Summit in Paris has wrapped up and was a great
success. It was a fun week of meeting up with fellow hackers to
discuss new features to implement in the next Ubuntu release, the Edgy
Eft. Seeing the sights of Paris was fun too. Here are some summit

 * About 80 people were in attendance
 * The schedules for each day can be viewed at
 * There were 172 topics accepted for discussion, and the schedule was
generated automatically for each day, depending on which topics needed
more discussion and their priority
 * Topics included technical features, community building, artwork,
documentation, processes, and more

which keeps track of specifications describing our plans for the

developer's conference''' -

== Feature Of The Week - Pattern Matching in Nautilus ==

One of the strengths of the command line is the ability to search for
patterns in just about anything. Well, Nautilus can perform pattern
matching too. Just hit CTRL+S in your Nautilus window and you can
select your files using patterns. If you have some rar-archives packed
in multiple volumes for example you could use *.r?? to match all of
them. The Asterisk (*) matches all characters before .r and the
Question marks (?) represents one character each. Almost any pattern
matching rule will work, give it a try for yourself.

== Coming Next Week ==

We will soon have a complete list of features that will be worked on
for Edgy. Starting next week we will begin discussing one feature a
week in depth with commentary from the developer(s) working on the
features in order to keep everyone informed, in detail, about the
features and their progress. You can also look forward to getting to
talk to the developers themselves about the features... more on this
next week! We will also catch up with more attendees and hear about
their personal accounts of the summit once they get back home and
settle in.
