Issue 44

August 9, 2009

This week… 1813 commits, in 179 projects, by 261 happy hackers (and 401 were translation commits).

  • Totem has been updated to use its new logo in both the browser plugin and main player (GNOME bug 480200), and to display embedded cover images in audio streams (GNOME bug 581249).
  • Marek Kašík added SVG support to GtkPrintBackendFile, this allows printing to SVG 1.2 files. (GNIME bug 357655)
  • Gimp got a palette export script which allows exporting palettes to .css, .php, .py, .txt and .java by adding a Export to menu item in the palette context menu in the Palettes dockable. (GNOME bug 304399)
  • Paolo Bacchilega imported his “ext” branch to gthumb, that refactors much of it into a system of extensions.
  • In GNOME Shell Marina Zhurakhinskaya enabled hot corner for triggering the overview mode; to enter and leave the overview mode by just moving the mouse to the top left corner of the screen,
    and Owen Taylor added a desktop file, to allow making GNOME Shell the desktop default by adding it to the auto-start items
  • Empathy was changed so dragndropping contacts will move them from group to group, instead of duplicating them in both groups. (GNOME bug 585443)
  • David Zeuthen added a first usable version of the Create RAID Array dialog to GNOME Disk Utility.
  • A new display-configuration branch has been created in gdm, to pursue GNOME bug 536355, to get back the ability to start and stop displays dynamically.
  • Xan Lopez reimplemented a password viewer for Epiphany, that fetches the data from the GNOME keyring, which is where WebKit stores it. (GNOME bug 579217)
  • In his Summer of Code project Guillaume Beland ported gnibbles to Clutter 1.0, fixed a collision bug and added some nice animations and effects.
