Issue 146

July 24, 2011

This week… 1607 commits, in 160 projects, by 208 happy hackers (and 269 were translation commits).

  • Damien Lespiau added a “camera” background type to pinpoint, “It’s awesome, it lets you put pull your webcam into your presentation.”
  • Gtkhtml was fixed by Matthew Barnes to get font settings from gsettings, not gconf. (GONME bug 655002)
  • Richard Schwarting added much documentation to the gxml library.
  • Ryan Lortie added new keyfile-based “dump” and “load” commands to the dconf cli tool.
  • Felix Riemann modified the map eog plugin to parse coordinate tags directly from the EXIF data. (GNOME bug 654650)
  • Some more Chinese poetry has been added to Pango test suite.
  • Cosimo Cecchi implemented a first iteration of an inline preview into gnome-documents.
  • Ignacio Casal Quinteiro updated gitg to show “gravatar” when changing the revision.
  • Nohemi Fernandez added a fullscale keyboard to Caribou, extending the US touch layout by including keys from the hardware keyboard (ie. Ctrl/Alt, etc).
  • Workarounds for Microsoft Excel ODF bugs were made in Gnumeric by Andreas J. Guelzow.
  • Robert Bragg added ColorMask support to Cogl, a color mask being a bit mask defining which color channels should be written to the current framebuffer.
  • Support for new org.gtk.GDBus.C.UnixFD annotation has been added into gdbus-codegen by David Zeuthen.
  • Paolo Bacchilega improved gthumb interaction with file-roller, now allowing to drop files from file-roller and get them extracted into the gthumb file list.
  • Jonathan Matthew replaced the metadata and encoder backends in Rhythmbox by GstDiscover, a decodebin2-based pipeline, and encodebin, fixing too many bugs to list in the process.
  • Arx Cruz added HTML support (via webkitgtk) into the –text-info option of zenity. (GNOME bug 598655)
