  • Based on a patch from Mark Starovoytov Dan Winship fixed libsoup to catch overflows when parsing very distant expiration dates in cookies. (GNOME bug 643462)
  • John Stowers added a user-theme extension to the gnome-shell-extensions repository. (GNOME bug 644271)
  • Ray Strode made it so that gdm runs the gnome-session acceleration helper script, to preload the GL stack and figure out ahead of time whether or not gnome shell can run on the system.
  • Marek Kasik updated the printers plugin of gnome-settings-daemon to show notifications for selected printer state changes (things liek “tuner low”).
  • Jakub Steiner worked on the Cantarell font, fixing all ~ accented glyphs. (GNOME bug 642396)
  • Steve Frécinaux enabled Python support for eog plugins. (GNOME bug 639597)

  • GObject Introspection support as been added to libcheese by Luciana Fujii Pontello.
  • Dan Winship changed gnome-shell to use the new libmutter-wm library, to build a real gnome-shell binary (GNOME bug 641724)
  • Bastien Nocera added some code to reorder date widgets in the date/time panel, to be based on the locale’s date format, rather than only supporting the US-centric version. (GNOME bug 636896)
  • And William Jon McCann ripped GNOME Screensaver of its theme and job support.
