Issue 6

November 16, 2008

This week… 1363 commits, in 162 projects, by 184 happy hackers (and 164 were translation commits).

  • The getting-rid-of-libgnome-and-gnome-vfs quest continues with Ekiga losing its dependency on libgnome and Anjuta removing some gnome-vfs usage
  • Matthias Clasen added lockdown support in the gnome-settings-daemon keybinding plugin (GNOME bug 553434)
  • In rhythmbox Christophe Fergeau switched several g_timeout_add to g_timeout_add_seconds so it wakes up the CPU less often; and Bastien Nocera added detection of the new PSP-3000
  • Bedhad Esfahbod added pangocairo backend to vte, and made it the default; it is as fast as the xft backend.
  • NetworkManager got support for PKCS#12 private keys
  • Evince got support for PDF layers (but it doesn’t seem like such support has been merged in poppler yet)
  • Murray Cumming created, to host project pages that were on; he posted to devel-announce to explain the motivation and implications
  • Finally, in GTK+-land, Michael Natterer added the new orientation API to GtkRange
