Issue 107

October 24, 2010

This week… 2246 commits, in 200 projects, by 225 happy hackers (and 297 were translation commits).

  • Colin Walters worked on porting gjs to xulrunner 2, including a port to use fast constructors.
  • Rodrigo Moya migrated many control center settings (accessibility, mouse and touchpad) to GSettings.
  • A “Remove attachments” command has been added to Evolution by Rex Tsai (GNOME bug 534453)
  • Brtfs has been made a normal part of gparted, it is no longer necessary to use the –enable-brtfs option.
  • A volume indicator has been added to GNOME Shell by Giovanni Campagna. (GNOME bug 629455)
  • Vitaly Minko added a new popup menu item in the Empathy chat window allowing to add words to dictionaries. (GNOME bug 550775).
  • Felix Riemann made “best fit” a toggle action in Eog, making it clear from the toolbar when the image will be rescaled with the window and when not. (GNOME bug 616890)
  • Tadej Borovšak added a GtkScollable interface to GTK+, and several modules (Nautilus, GNOME Control Center, gtksourceview, and gedit) have already been adapted to use it.
  • Also in GTK+ Matthias Clasen added a new GtkGrid widget, similar to GtkTable but without the legacy properties and unncessary restrictions.
  • GNOME Settings Daemon got a bridge plugin, listening to GSettings changes and propagating them to GConf.
