Transmageddon test release available

I have made a first test release of Transmageddon today, 0.23. It is the first release depending on GStreamer 0.11/1.0 and GTK3. It also features a little bit of GNOME Shell and Unity integration in the form of a notification message when its done transcoding and the menu has been moved into the shell. You can find the test release in the pre-release directory on Let me know if you have any issues so I can try to fix them before I make a final stable release when GStreamer 1.0 is released. Be aware that you want the GStreamer 0.11 releases from yesterday to try this release.

New GTK3 and GNOME shell friendly Transmageddon

So you figured out the whole GMenu thing too (apart from the whole F18 mess) !

Well not the whole, still haven’t figured out exactly how to add a gmenu entry with a switch in it, but yes basic entries I can now add :)

Nice demonstration of what porting to Gtk+3/GNOME Shell can bring to thirty party app :)

All nice so far, but “Transmageddon Video Transcoder” is a bit too long as a string in the Application menu.

Hmm, not sure what to do as just putting Video Transcoder seems like something that will cause issues if ever any other transcoder gets installed.

The title here says Transmagaddeon instead of Transmageddon ;-)

Oops, thanks for letting me know. Fixed it now :)
