I decided that I should blog about Ubuntu/GNOME cools changes, so for this week:

  • Some packages update:

    – glib/pango

    – metacity (constraints changes, with edge resistance)

    – gtk-engines (clearlooks using cairo, with nice animations)

    – xchat-gnome (sets away status when gnome-screensaver runs, uses libnotify)

    – packaged nautilus-actions

  • The menus have been reworked (simplification, MenusRevisited)
  • A GConf transition, following the Debian changes:

    – a package split to fix the circular Depends issue.

    – merge of the gconf directory trees for better performance,

    – a new framework to easily set up defaults in Debian packages

  • An Ubuntu Desktop Team meeting
