Issue 34

May 31, 2009

This week… 1881 commits, in 190 projects, by 250 happy hackers (and 279 were translation commits).

  • DBus support has been added to gjs . (GNOME bug 580948).
  • gnome-power-manager went back to use the original idletime code to fix backlight bugs, Richard Hughes explained in his commit that “The new IDLETIME code from gnome-session is very buggy, and the old code was much easier to understand. This should fix random DPMS off blanking and the fade-up-down-up on session resume.”
  • In Empathy Pierre-Luc Beaudouin added support to display the locations of contacts on a map widget (provided by libchamplain ). (GNOME bug 571667)
  • Vinagre gained a new “read-only” toggle button in its toolbar . (GNOME bug 583230)
  • Johannes Schmid removed the remaining libglade bits from anjuta, that is now using GtkBuilder . (GNOME bug 530740)
  • gdl, the GNOME Docking Library, removed its dependency on libgnome (GNOME bug 580860) and dropped libglade in favour of GtkBuilder (GNOME bug 582511).
  • xchat-gnome got rid of the deprecated GTK+ symbols it was using (GNOME bug 572239).
  • More than five years after it was first reported, thanks to the migration to WebKit, Epiphany will now set the Referer header when opening links in new tabs . (GNOME bug 120341)
