Issue 90

June 27, 2010

This week… 2629 commits, in 209 projects, by 282 happy hackers (and 315 were translation commits).

  • GSettings ports again, nautilus-sendto, gcalctool were both switched this week to use GSettings. nautilus-sendto has also been ported to GTK+ 3.0, and Rygel as well.
  • OpenID support has been added to Snowy, the web companion of Tomboy.
  • Daniel P. Berrange added support for colourmap based pixel formats to gtk-vnc, his patch implements full support for rendering from colourmaps, this should improve performances in low bandwidth situations.
  • The notification-daemon got support for multiple screens and monitor changes (GNOME bug 622552)
  • Christian Persch ported the SVGZ support in librsvg so it can use GZlibDecompressor instead of libgsf. (GNOME bug 621699)
  • Damon Chaplin worked quite a lot on a new API for goocanvas, in the new-api branch of goocanvas…
  • GNOME Shell got support for icon buttons in notifications, thanks to Matt Novenstern. (GNOME bug 621014)
  • Morten Welinder fixed the excessive memory usage of gnumeric related to column styles when reading xslx files. (GNOME bug 622365)
  • Michael J. Chudobiak switched the documentation of gthumb to Mallard.
  • In Empathy support for importing old Missing Control 4 accounts has been removed.
  • Bastien Nocera ported the sound preferences dialog to be a panel in the new control center; and Richard Hughes ported the preferences dialog of GNOME PackageKit.
  • The GNOME Panel got support for gobject-introspection, for its panel applet library. (GNOME bug 622341)
  • In Vinagre Jonh Wendell implemented the “take screenshot” command for the SSH connections.
  • In the land of GSOC students Jamie Nicol finished off the profile view (screenshot), Stéphane Maniaci added some informations about the photos imported from Flickr (titles, descriptions, authors), Michel Hruby started a Totem plugin to allow searching for recent media, and other students were also hard at work.
