GNOME Activity Journal, along with the engine that powers it ‘Zeitgeist‘, both of which will form part of the forthcoming GNOME 3, has been gifted with a very awesome new look.

Hold on, GNOME Activity… What?!
The GNOME Activity Journal wiki describes the application as:

“…a tool for easily browsing and finding files on your computer. It uses Zeitgeist to get information on what files/websites/contacts/etc. you worked with and Tracker to get information about the current state of the files and all sorts of meta-data (including tags). “

Say you worked on a Document last Monday, but you can’t remember what it was called. No problem – open up teh activity Journal and navigate to ‘Monday’ and you’ll see a list of various things you did. Narrow it down to ‘documents’ and et voila! You found it!

New Look
The news today is that GAJ has gotten a really sexy makeover! Developer Seif Lofty posted the following screenshot of it – yes, not a mock-up – on his blog earlier:


It looks awesome! Well done guys!

For reference here’s what it looked like before: –
