Issue 112

November 28, 2010

This week… 2827 commits, in 163 projects, by 220 happy hackers (and 223 were translation commits).

  • Cosimo Cecchi started porting the “removable media” preferences tab of Nautilus to be a new control center panel.
  • A limit to the number of times gnome-session will try to restart an application has been added by Jon McCann; it’s still missing the display of en error dialog when such a situation happens. (GNOME bug 634762)
  • Johannes Schmid added a new code analyser plugin to Anjuta, it uses clang and the results are displayed in the message pane like compiler errors.
  • Pedro Castro improved the support for FAB Subtitler files in gnome-subtitles.
  • Gabriel Burt added back a podcast browser to Banshee.
  • After months of work TLS support has finally landed in glib, many thanks to Dan Winship, it adds an extension point into gio, and glib-networking provides a gnutls-based implementation. (GNOME bug 588189)
  • Lucas Rocha started a nautilus extension for the-board; at the moment it allows adding photos to The Board.
  • Alexander Larsson landed a “broadway” branch into GTK+, this adds a HTML backend to GTK+; he had written about this before in GTK+ 3 vs HTML 5.
  • Maxim Ermilov made links in message banners of gnome shell clickable. (GNOME bug 610219)
  • The “About GNOME” dialog has been removed, a new “System Information” panel should arrive to provide similar functionalities.
  • Jon Drufresne added a “Show whitespace” preference for the comparison of files in meld. (GNOME bug 622342)
  • A complete API break happened in libgrss as all object and function names have been moved to the “grss” namespace.
  • Brandon Lewis maded it possible for the viewer widget in pitivi to be (un)docked.
  • The gutters in GtkSourceView (typically used to draw line numbers on the side) have been improved by Jesse van den Kieboom, to remove some limitations in sizing and accurate user control.

    The link to the anjuta bug points to a gnome-session bug

    The influence of Unity on the Gnome Shell

    The Gnome developers know that 14 million to 16 million will be using the Unity.Eles will not want your users lost in Unity. Then copied the layout. Below is a screen that shows this.

    Today we can see the force of the decisions of the developers of Ubuntu. What we have with the new Gnome Shell, a replica of the Unity. It seems Unity with a new theme.
