Issue 132

This week… 2032 commits, in 167 projects, by 243 happy hackers (and 355 were translation commits).

  • Ritesh Khadgaray migrated xchat-gnome from libglade to GtkBuilder . (GNOME bug 588400)
  • Kristian Rietveld started implementing a CoreText backend for pango, to be used on Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.
  • Peter Bloomfield removed the usage of GConf in Balsa.
  • In Glade Juan Pablo Ugarte optimized project loading time by not updating progrebars on each object loaded, he also migrated code from GtkStyle to GtkStyleContext.
  • Shaun McCance added a Mallard xref link checker to yelp-tools.
  • The Board got webcam support in photo elements, thanks Lucas Rocha.
  • Alexander Larsson went on fixing a lot of D-Bus message leaks in gvfs.
  • Support for upload progress has been added to libsocialweb by Eitan Isaacson.

  • Richard Hughes added named color profile support to gcm-viewer.
  • Matthias Clasen got to improve struct packing for many objects of glib and GTK+.
