Special Delivery

I almost forgot – this should tell you how bad a maintainer I am ;-) – but Lennart’s blog reminded me: the ringchart code hit Baobab HEAD:

Baobab Ringchart

The ringchart view is really nice – even though I still very much like the treemap – but the real improvements are in Baobab’s user interface, which got streamlined and made simpler. Kudos to both Fabio Marzocca, Paolo Borelli and to all the people at Igalia who worked really hard in order to make the next stable release of Baobab rock.

I did not package a gnome-utils tarball in time for 2.17.1, as I’m still working on my development tree for both the dictionary and the screenshot tool; but since I got a couple of bug fixes (backported to the stable branch) I plan to do a 2.16.2 release this weekend and a 2.17.1 before the end of the month. In the meantime: grab a snapshot from CVS and test away!

    It’s nice, but shouldn’t be better a view for Nautilus that does this job?

  3. ebassi says:

    alan: it’s what the HIG recommends, since baobab does not deal with files in any way.

    gigo: why? baobab’s codebase does not belong in nautilus, but nautilus can be changed to allow the user to invoke baobab to show the on disk usage of a folder from a button inside the “properties” page.
