I’ve just updated the Recent Files and Bookmarks page on Gnome’s wiki: some (long due) clean ups and typo checking, but I’ve also added a porting guide, showing how to use the
RecentChooser objects: addition, look up, display, sorting and filtering. If you are using the EggRecent code in your applications, go check it out.
As soon as Gnome 2.14 hits the mirrors, I’ll finally deprecate the EggRecent code – and won’t have to deal with the horrible EggRecentViewGtk widget anymore. Really, if there is a reason I wanted to implement the recenly used documents stuff, it surely must be to get rid of that code.
