Metacity 2.15.3

Metacity 2.15.3 has been released (yesterday, I’m a bit late on the announcement), and will appear as part of the GNOME[1] 2.15.2 release scheduled for tomorrow. Not as many changes as other releases, but still a couple nice improvements:

  • various code cleanups (Søren)
  • prevent long titles from “sticking” in the tasklist (Elijah) [#330671]
  • handle sync counter notifications in the compositor (Søren)
  • notes/documentation updates (Elijah)
  • plug a small leak (Paolo Borelli)
  • remove a lot of dead code obsoleted by the new edge-resistance stuff (Björn) [#341561]
  • prevent a crash when changing resolution (jylefort FreeBSD org) [#340847]
  • revert an accessibility module loading workaround from GNOME 2.6 (since it has long since been fixed for us in gtk+) (Elijah) [#123372]

[1] Yeah, yeah, I know. Jeff emailed me off list after the recent (what I thought was just humorous) thread and I discovered that spelling, for whatever reason, was really important to him. While I don’t like this version as much and think it’s inevitable that it will change to non-caps, I don’t care that much. Sure, I was somewhat persistent, but it was all in good fun. I really don’t see why anyone else would care that much; it just doesn’t make sense to me how it could be important. But, it apparently is to some. So, if it matters that much to him, I can use this spelling. *shrug*

    You mean “revert an accessibility module loading workaround from GNOME 2.6″

    Doh, oops. Some habits are hard to break, I guess. You caught me, Dude. I’ll fix in a second.
