Issue 45

August 17, 2009

This week… 2799 commits, in 207 projects, by 314 happy hackers (and 707 were translation commits).

  • Nautilus has been changed to inhibit gnome-power-manager when copying files (GNOME bug 334806).
  • Simon van der Linden landed much of his summer of code work on pybank (using gobject-introspection to create dynamic Python bindings to gobject libraries) in the gsco2009 branch.
  • GConf has removed its libgnome dependency (which was casued by a test client) (GNOME bug 586435), and was ported to the PolicyKit 1.0 API (GNOME bug 585303).
  • Benjamin Otte ported byzanz (screencast tool) from gnome-vfs to gio, and from gdk to cairo.
  • Thanks to a change in libgweather it is now possible to add an UTC time entry to the clock applet. (GNOME bug 541145)
  • Jean Bréfort added a new cairo-based canvas to goffice, to be used in Gnumeric, to replace foocanvas.
  • Every little part of gnome-panel has been ported to GtkBuilder.
  • The gvfs gphoto2 backend and monitor were ported to gudev.
  • Most of the C++ bindings were transitioned to a new build infrastructure, using the new mm-common module.
  • In Yelp Shaun McCance added the possibility for ghelp: URIs to reference Mallard documents.
  • And an all-new Mallard documentation, mostly written by Milo Casagrande and Phil Bull, has been merged into Empathy.
  • Dan Winship ported SoupAddress to use GResolver, new in the latest GLib.
  • Finally Matthew Barnes added support for “Fifth Sunday *of the month*” to Evolution (in his kill-bonobo branch) (and it also works for other weekdays!) (GNOME bug 328361).
