Issue 65

January 3, 2010

This week… 1259 commits, in 144 projects, by 148 happy hackers (and 191 were translation commits).

  • Empathy will now display the protocol icon in a corner of the status icon of the contacts. (GNOME bug 603877)
  • Kupfer got support for Triggers, Ulrik Sverdrup explains it in detail in his appropriately named Kupfer gains Triggers post.
  • Debarshi Ray (who took over maintenance of gnote) added a “note of the day” addin. (GNOME bug 590589)
  • Gian Mario Tagliaretti wrapped many GSocket and GResolver functions for pygobjet.
  • Epiphany was fixed so that notifification of completed downloads doesn’t rely anymore on the presence of the status icon. (GNOME bug 604599)
  • The mixed state of toggle buttons has been changed to be drawn half in the normal and the other half in the pressed state. (GNOME bug 502165)
  • Jesse van den Kieboom improved menu integration of gedit on Mac OS X; this now uses the latest updates done on the ige-mac-integration library, with additional patches.
  • Josh Tripplet added support for XTerm bracketed paste mode to VTE, this allows programs to distinguish pasted text from typed text. For example vim could automatically use paste mode for pastes, avoiding unwanted duplicate indentation or formatting. (GNOME bug 605299)
  • Sebastien Granjoux added a new project backend to Anjuta, to open a directory as a project.
  • Cody Russel added a GtkOffscreenWindow implementation, to make it much easier to take an arbitrary widget and render it to an offscreen buffer without having it displayed anywhere onscreen. (GNOME bug 604901)
