This week… 1396 commits, in 196 projects, by 161 happy hackers (and 354 were translation commits).

  • Vincent Untz commited his changes to session management (GNOME bug 552387).
  • gnome-disk-utility has been ported to the new DeviceKit-disks, that uses libatasmart.
  • Rhythmbox switched to using GStreamer decodebin2 instead of decodebin, that fixed playback of chained ogg streams.
  • Brasero split into backend (libbrasero-burn) and application was finished, the new library API now needs to be refined.
  • gpointing-device-settings got support for tap move and palm detection.
  • Sebastian Dröge started porting totem GStreamer backend to playbin2. (GNOME bug 542663)
  • gnome-bluetooth device chooser saw some merging of device types into categories (mice and keyboard in “input devices”, headphones, headsets and others in “audio devices”…), making easier to find a select devices.
  • libchamplain added a way to make visible a bunch of markers (GNOME bug 574809) and smooth movement to a new position (GNOME bug 557641).
  • Anjal saw many changes, such as working Delete/Junk, a formatting toolbar, and the possibility to open mails in new tabs.
