April 25, 2010

This week… 1978 commits, in 233 projects, by 242 happy hackers (and 492 were translation commits).

  • Support for animated images (GNOME bug 335093) and scaling of SVG images (GNOME bug 108435) have been added to eog.
  • Many patches from Quentin Sculo have been applied to perl-Gtk2, bringing support for new widgets and methods the GTK+ Perl binding.
  • Much work continued to happen with regards to gsettings, Matthias Clasen for example added gsettings-tools, a command line tool equivalent to gconftool . (GNOME bug 616313)
  • Ignacio Casal Quinteiro created a gsettings branch to hold the port of gedit to GSettings.
  • In the same vein, Bastien Nocera ported gnome-bluetooth, and Milan Bouchet-Valat ported gnome-system-tools, and Shaun McCance ported yelp.
  • Ray Strode added a smartcard plugin to gnome-settings-daemon, it listens for smartcard insertion and removal events and then locks the screen or forces a log out (depending on gconf) when the card used for login is removed.
  • Lucien Langa added correct handling of the RSS media extension to evolution-rss, making it possible to download enclosures.
  • Łukasz Jernaś started writing the Giggle documentation using Mallard.
  • Jean Brefort implemented graph only sheets into Gnumeric . (GNOME bug 158170)
