Issue 111

November 21, 2010

This week… 1927 commits, in 202 projects, by 209 happy hackers (and 400 were translation commits).

  • Christian Persch moved back the typing-break code from gnome-settings-daemon and gnome-control-center to its own drwright module.
  • Owen Taylor added a new frame type to mutter for modal dialogs. (GNOME bug 592382)
  • Much work happened around the gtk-style-context branch of GTK+, with many modules tentatively ported, including a transformation of the ClearLooks into a GtkThemingEngine.
  • Vinagre was adapted to the new G[tk]Application API by Jonh Wendell.
  • Colin Walters added support for gunichar as a new fundamental type tag to gjs. (GNOME bug 633199)
  • GNOME Power Manager has been cleaned of all its UPS specific UI, to just use the battery critical action for the UPS critical state.
  • Andoni Morales Alastruey updated Longomatch to only show players that are actually plaging, and to sort them on their numbers, not names.
  • A new Battery & Power indicator has been added to GNOME Shell by Giovanni Campagna. (GNOME bug 622451)
  • The GNOME Control Center got a new ‘Power’ panel, with appropriate power management settings.
  • Libsoup has been changed to make URI username/password override cached info; this allows a page to, eg, force a logout by sending an XMLHttpRequest using a bad password. (GNOME bug 631679)
  • Peter Hutterer added a wacom gnome-settings-daemon plugin.
  • Also Tomas Bzatek started porting Nautilus aurorun code as a new automount gnome-settings-daemon plugin.
  • Cosimo Cecchi started implementing a “open with” dialog right in GTK+, it is currently in the open-with-dialog branch.
  • Last but not least Arx Cruz added a new quite featured –form option to Zenity, making it possible to build more complex dialogs from a simple command line. (GNOME bug 412493)
