Issue 54

October 18, 2009

This week… 2078 commits, in 184 projects, by 233 happy hackers (and 438 were translation commits).

  • The new GtkFileSystemModel worked by Benjamin Otte and Federico Mena Quintero has been pushed to GTK+.
  • Also in GTK+, a new GtkSpinner widget has been commited. (GNOME bug 319607)
  • libsoup was changed to allow multiple pending connections to a server at once, as only allowing a single connection attempt at once really slows down pages with lots of subresources on servers that disallow persistent connections. (GNOME bug 594768)
  • gdm has been converted from using gnome-power-manager to DeviceKit-power. (GNOME bug 596569)
  • Jason Clinton pushed the Clutter rewrite of the Nibbles game, done by Guillaume Beland during his summer of code.
  • Vinagre has been updated to keep the aspect ratio when using scaling mode. (GNOME bug 593192)
  • Jason Childs added support for transparent objects in dia, by adding alpha to the Color structure. (GNOME bug 591525)
  • Devhelp has been modified to look for an existing local copy of documents referred by their location. (GNOME bug 598598)
  • xml2po has been fixed to work with parallel builds. (GNOME bug 593175)
  • Balsa, Gimp and goffice were all ported to compile fine with GSEAL enabled.
