Issue 148

August 7, 2011

This week… 1642 commits, in 165 projects, by 217 happy hackers (and 223 were translation commits).

  • Jesse van den Kieboom added pre-commit and post-commit hook execution to gitg.
  • Stef Walter implemented GTlsDatabase into glib-networking, an abstract object implemented by the various TLS backends, which is used by GTlsConnection to lookup certificates and keys, as well as verify certificate chains. (GNOME bug 636572)
  • Stef Walter also ported libcryptui to use GSettings.
  • In Rygel Luis de Bethencourt made the AVC_MP4 and AAC_ISO_320 transcoders configurable.
  • Guillaume Desmottes changed Vinagre to default to 8 bit color depth for Telepathy tubes, as those connections are often slower than local connections. (GNOME bug 655415)
  • Vincent Untz ported gnome-panel to use the new gnome-menus API. (GNOME bug 649327)
  • Fabien Parent contributed support for user defined assembly syntax in Nemiver.
  • Richard Hughes added a backlight helper to the gnome-settings-daemon power plugin, as xbacklight isn’t always present.

  • The new Evolution documentation, in Mallard and written and assembled by Andre Klapper has landed.
  • Shaun McCance added support for a “button” style on link, in yelp-xsl.
  • Support for rich text in legends has been added to goffice by Jean Bréfort.
  • Cosimo Cecchi removed the built-in hover audio previewer from Nautilus, as there is now sushi.
  • Joaquim Rocha added support for exporting to PDF in ocrfeeder.
  • Bastien Nocera added a plugin to rotate videos to Totem. (GNOME bug 589399)
  • Morten Welinder excised usage of libgnome* and bonobo from Gnumeric.
  • In evolution-data-server Philip Withnall added support for getting and setting photos on contacts from Google Contacts, including caching support. (GNOME bug 619135)
