Bustle 0.2.5: now with statistics

Bustle 0.2.5—“Why go all the way to Glastonbury to not watch U2 when you can just not turn on the BBC at any point this weekend to not watch them?”—is out now. This release adds a sidebar containing statistics about the log: namely, method call and signal emission frequency, and total/mean times spent in method calls.

This code has mostly been sitting around in a branch since Plumbers in November. Sorry, dear users!

Shaving a yak with an angle bracket

Today I wrote an XMPP console for Telepathy, in the form of a little Gabble plugin plus a really terrible Gtk+ interface that lets you send an IQ and see the result, syntax-highlighted—mostly in bright pink—by GtkSourceView. Wocky, gobject-introspection and GtkGrid.attach_next_to are all great. In the highly unlikely event that XMPP consoles are something that interest you, and that the lack of one has been dissuading you from embracing Empathy, I hope this meets with your approval.

This has mostly been a diversion from debugging some weird alias, roster and presence interactions between Gabble and Prosody, which I still haven’t tracked down. But hey, the angle brackets look nicer now!

Bustle 0.2.4 released

Just released Bustle 0.2.4. Various bits of clean-up and bug fixes were kicking around in master that should have been released months ago. The viewer’s much more Postel-compliant, so if you’ve had trouble with your D-Bus logs being rejected with cryptic errors messages, you should upgrade. Also, Sergei Trofimovich contributed a build fix: thanks!

While we’re here: Bustle finally has a bug tracker! Bugs are in the Bustle component on freedesktop.org Bugzilla. And the Git repository has moved to freedesktop.org too. With luck, the next release will be more exciting. :)
