Issue 53

October 11, 2009

This week… 1940 commits, in 179 projects, by 246 happy hackers (and 367 were translation commits).

  • Nautilus gained a “copy anyway” option in the error dialog it displays when there is not enough space on the destination. (GNOME bug 324361)
  • Richard Hugues probably added Super Cow Powers to gnome-packagekit, carefully hiding this fact in 50 commits with “Moo”, or a slight variation, as commit message.
  • Ryan Lortie merged the various dconf* utilities in a single “dconf” tool, also he added API documentation.
  • The gtk-2.90 branch was created and saw the removal of many deprecated widgets and functions.
  • Devhelp got a new fullscreen mode, mostly thanks to code from gedit.
  • In Evolution Matthew Barnes finally got pane size restoration to play nicely with maximised windows. (GNOME bug 593612)
  • gok has been migrated to use GtkBuilder instead of libglade. (GNOME bug 582504)
  • gvfs has been fixed to display the overwrite dialog when restoring already existing files from trash. (GNOME bug 596618)
  • Rhythmbox has been ported to use gnome-session for inhibition support, inhibiting the session to go idle (thus preventing gnome-power-manager from suspending the computer due to inactivity). (GNOME bug 596573)
  • Marina Zhurakhinskaya extented GNOME Shell application search to match on menu categories. (GNOME bug 597153)
