Issue 43

August 2, 2009

This week… 2195 commits, in 186 projects, by 288 happy hackers (and 328 were translation commits).

  • Now that gnome-doc-utils and yelp both have support for Mallard documents, Milo Casagrande converted gnome-hello documentation to the new format.
  • After some discussion on the gnomecc list the default toolbar style has been changed to “Text beside items”.
  • Sabayon was changed to use Xephyr instead of Xnest, as Xephyr supports the “new” X extensions.
  • gnome-session has been fixed to not exit when the system bus restarts. (GNOME bug 583345)
  • A new “ssh” plugin appeared in vinagre, which is becoming a universal tool to access remote systems.
  • Robin Stocker added to Totem the functionality to remember the current position of a stream when pausing or closing. (GNOME bug 164918)
  • After Hylke Bons posted some thoughts on the font viewer Thomas Wood started implementing the proposed ideas, in the “font-viewer-revamp” branch of the GNOME Control Center.
  • Anjuta Git plugin gained an option to initialize new repositories. (GNOME bug 566698)
  • Finally, during this 10th week of the summer of code, students were hard at work, some noticeable advancements:
    • Paul A. Bellamy successfully implemented syncing and a properties dialog for MTP devices in Rhythmbox;
    • Neil Loknath added streaming to Banshee using Telepathy, you can now stream a contact’s music after downloading their library info;
    • Paulo Cabido merged the plugin engine with Getting Things Gnome main development branch.

    So what does Sabayon distro have to do with Gnome?

    Sabayon is (also) a system administration tool to manage GNOME desktop settings.
