The merge of the
new-dictionary branch into gnome-utils HEAD is fast approaching: I’ve set the deadline to the end of the week – in time to write off the last bits of the preferences dialog:
Right now, you can’t add or activate a new dictionary source, unless you write the
.desktop file and drop it into
$HOME/.gnome2/gnome-dictionary, and then change the
/apps/gnome-dictionary/source key inside GConf – but I plan to have this nailed down in the next couple of days (the UI for both display and edit has already been designed using Glade).
The font selection thingy for the printed output is, instead, already working.
Known regressions: the text highlighting is still missing, and I don’t know if it’s going to make it not only before the merge deadline, but also before UI freeze.
