GNOME MultiWriter 3.15.2

I’ve just released GNOME MultiWriter 3.15.2, which is the first release that makes it pretty much feature complete for me.

Reads and writes are now spread over root hubs to increase throughput. If you’ve got a hub with more than 7 ports and the port numbers don’t match the decals on the device please contact me for more instructions.

In this release I’ve also added the ability to completely wipe a drive (write the image, then NULs to pad it out to the size of the media) and made that and the verification step optional. We also now show a warning dialog to the user the very first time the application is used, and some global progress in the title bar so you can see the total read and write throughput of the application.

With this release I’ve now moved the source to git.gnome.org and will do future releases to ftp.gnome.org like all the other GNOME modules. If you see something obviously broken and you have GNOME commit access, please just jump in and fix it. The translators have done a wonderful job using transifex, but now I’m leaving the just-as-awesome GNOME translator teams handle localisation.

If you’ve got a few minutes, and want to try it out, you can clone the git repo or install a package for Fedora.

  1. Btw, does Chrome include appdata?

    I submitted a patch to the Debian JOSM package to install the upstream appdata file correctly (there was some special install rules to install the .desktop and icons from the upstream tarball).
    I was checking some other packages, among others Chromium where it seemed like there was currently a .desktop file shipped as part of the packaging (inside Ā«packagedirĀ»/debian/), so I thought maybe the upstream tarball had left these things up to downstream packagers. Didn’t Firefox have such an approach?
