2008-01-12: For, indeed, the best medicine in life is a friend

AelredWelcome back to the Metacity Journal; it’s been a month, and Christmas got in the way a little, so this will be rather a highlights reel.

Havoc has sorted all source files into subdirectories by purpose, which makes the structure of the program a lot cleaner.

Iain has fixed some bugs in the compositor about drawing shadows and other things.

Thomas has made a start on documenting every function using Doxygen. The current state of things is already quite useful for debugging, because you can use it to see which functions call which other functions. For examples of parts which are fully filled in, see:

There is an unstable release (2.21.8) due tomorrow. Also, is there anyone out there who would like to lend a hand with triage? As always, we love to hear from you about this or anything else.

(Post title thanks to Aelred of Rievaulx, who died on this day in 1167.)
