Issue 34

May 31, 2009

This week… 1881 commits, in 190 projects, by 250 happy hackers (and 279 were translation commits).

  • DBus support has been added to gjs. (GNOME bug 580948).
  • gnome-power-manager went back to use the original idletime code to fix backlight bugs, Richard Hughes explained in his commit that “The new IDLETIME code from gnome-session is very buggy, and the old code was much easier to understand. This should fix random DPMS off blanking and the fade-up-down-up on session resume.”
  • In Empathy Pierre-Luc Beaudouin added support to display the locations of contacts on a map widget (provided by libchamplain). (GNOME bug 571667)
  • Vinagre gained a new “read-only” toggle button in its toolbar. (GNOME bug 583230)
  • Johannes Schmid removed the remaining libglade bits from anjuta, that is now using GtkBuilder. (GNOME bug 530740)
  • gdl, the GNOME Docking Library, removed its dependency on libgnome (GNOME bug 580860) and dropped libglade in favour of GtkBuilder (GNOME bug 582511).
  • xchat-gnome got rid of the deprecated GTK+ symbols it was using (GNOME bug 572239).
  • More than five years after it was first reported, thanks to the migration to WebKit, Epiphany will now set the Referer header when opening links in new tabs. (GNOME bug 120341)
