Adding upstream version 0.8.0.
[debian/lxpanel.git] / ChangeLog
1* Added workaround for crash in gtk-run with old libmenu-cache.
2* Core functions are separated into a private library to allow reliable
3 linking of modules using -Wl,-z,defs.
4* Added macro LXPANEL_CHECK_VERSION() for third party pluguns API check.
5* Added CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL support for lxpanel_generic_config_dlg().
6* Implemented property "aspect-width" for PanelIconGrid to allow using
7 non-square tray sockets.
8* Added support for monitors "All" to span panel over all monitors (i.e.
9 to allow pre-0.6.0 behavior).
10* Implemented monitors hotplug support.
11* Fixed popups positioning in multi-monitor environment.
12* Fixed updating panel size if appropriate monitor changed its size or
13 position.
14* Implemented disabling for "Reserve space" button if another monitor
15 lies beyond the edge so reservation will cover it. Also reservation
16 will not be applied in such cases even if set in config manually.
17* Some edge and monitors selections in panel configuration dialog may be
18 insensitive now if appropriate edge and monitor combination is not
19 available, to avoid panels stacking one over another.
20* Fixed bug with hidden panel disappearing after resolution change.
21* Add lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to replace another (obsolete) API
22 _gtk_image_new_from_file_scaled().
23* Added API panel_config_hotkey_button_new() to use as CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL
24 widget to allow configure global hotkeys for plugins functions.
25* Added API lxpanel_apply_hotkey() as a convenient libkeybinder interface
26 to use in modules that also use panel_config_hotkey_button_new(). Now
27 LXPanel requires libkeybinder too.
28* Added API panel_config_click_button_new() to configure mouse gestures
29 and panel_config_click_parse() to parse its output.
30* Added "icon-size-changed" signal to LXPanel which is emitted when icons
31 size in configuration dialog was changed.
32* Improved lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to follow panel icons size
33 changes, not only theme changes. This way calls on lxpanel_image_*
34 APIs on theme or panel changes may be eliminated, i.e. code becomes
35 simpler.
36* Added new lxpanel_image_change_icon() API for simplification reasons so
37 other lxpanel_image_* APIs can be replaced completely.
38* APIs lxpanel_button_set_icon() lxpanel_button_update_icon() now don't
39 require setting icon size since created button already follows size
40 from panel settings. Also it doesn't require refresh after the panel
41 configuration change.
42* Disabled scaling up small icons in the taskbar: scaled up icons look
43 bad due to pixelization (patch from Anton Lobashev).
44* When adding new panel, now correctly edges of monitor where popup was
45 are tried before any other monitors.
46* Correctly open 'netstat' plugin own menu on leftclick since rightclick
47 should open panel context menu instead.
48* System critical temperature level in 'thermal' plugin now is properly
49 ignored if manual levels are active.
50* Fixed click on 'menu' plugin, only image was clickable, not whole area.
51* Added API panel_config_int_button_new() for generic plugin config spin
52 button with custom range, not just generic 0...1000.
53* Fixed wrong behavior with PanelIconGrid constrained width after child
54 was removed: size wasn't always renegotiated correctly.
55* Fixed range of space reservation in multi-monitor setup (reservation
56 might cover another monitor).
57* Numeric-only string will be saved now double-quoted to distinguish it
58 from number in config.
59* Implemented flashing on task with urgency in grouped task list menu.
60* Disabled flashing on urgency hint if window has focus, most of window
61 managers do the same on window decorations.
62* Fixed border of 'batt' plugin, it should correctly use panel settings.
63 Also 'Size' setting of it doesn't include border width.
64* Allowed default alarmCommand on 'batt' plugin be translated.
65* Implemented sorting plugins in Add plugin window in alphabetic order.
66* Fixed font in the weather plugin to use panel settings.
67* Added new API lxpanel_button_compose() for future usage by plugins.
68* Added optional volumealsa plugin volume mapping from alsamixer (patch
69 from Peter).
70* Added new API lxpanel_button_set_label() to change label of button that
71 was created using some lxpanel_button_*() API.
72* Added "panel-font-changed" signal to LXPanel to be able follow settings
73 change in font configuration of panel using lxpanel_button_*() API.
74* Fixed nasty bug with autohidden panel after unhide appeared for short
75 time somewhere at the screen.
76* Fixed calendar and configuration windows blinking on their appearance.
77* Fixed panel update when background image changed in configuration.
78* Changed to use persistent background image for panel and Cairo. This
79 way updating background should be faster, and also fixed background
80 of plugins when image is used, both placement and alpha color.
81* Urgent window is now always visible on the taskbar irrelevant of the
82 desktop number on which it appears, because urgent window requires
83 user attention (patch from Andy Balaam).
84* Moved bit of code that is used out from src/bg.c and discarded src/bg.c
85 from code used.
86* Dropped setting members of Panel structure: workarea, wa_len, bg.
87* Replaced GtkComboBoxEntry in netstatus plugin window with GtkComboBox.
88* Simplified plugins background setting - they should never use any own
89 background but either use one from panel or from theme (depending on
90 panel configuration). This should improve performance.
91* Don't update a whole panel background anymore after some plugin was
92 resized, only update the plugin itself to improve performance.
96* Fixed unhiding panel if it becomes empty and height_when_hidden is 0.
97* Fixed invalid X protocol word size: despite of stating it 32 bit, the X
98 server uses unsigned long which is 64 bit on 64-bit architectures.
99* Adapted to use libmenu-cache >= 1.0.0 - it could show empty folders in
100 the desktop menu.
101* Fixed crash in taskbar after visible task changed name then gone.
102* Ensured panel background update after some plugin was resized.
103* FileManager statement from old config should never be scanned again.
104* Fixed positioning of new created panel, the edge was not saved.
105* Eliminated hardcoded "xterm" in 'volumealsa' plugin - LibFM has enough
106 means to call terminal when needed.
107* Fixed crash if 'volumealsa' plugin initialization failed.
111* Fixed search for the gtkrc file.
112* Fixed search path for configuration - it should be not compilation time
113 path but paths using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS.
114* Fixed incorrect flag for 'launchbar' plugin which marks him expandable.
115* Fixed dragging of task buttons.
116* Corrected using $XDG_MENU_PREFIX to work the same way as libfm does.
117* Fixed using font description, font in gtkrc file was ignored.
118* Improved search for hw sensors in /sys/class/hwmon/ hierarchy.
119* Improved check for critical temperatures in 'termal' plugin, now each
120 individual hardware setting (if available) is also taken into
121 consideration.
122* Fixed parsing alias name in 'weather' plugin settings.
123* Got rid of all individual plugins/*/Makefile - those rules more easily
124 can be contained in the plugins/ Adding a simple plugin
125 basically would mean to add three lines into that file instead of
126 writing whole
127* Fixed invalid system config path search ("lxpanel" part was missing).
128* Fixed incorrect requirements in the lxpanel.pc file.
129* Fixed memory leak in the 'volumealsa' plugin.
130* Now 'volumealsa' checks for 'MixerCommand' setting in the configuration
131 before guessing it.
132* Fixed color saving in the configuration.
133* Fixed incomplete resources deallocation in 'volumealsa' plugin.
134* Fixed make uninstall (it left plugins installed).
135* Fixed monitor number set from GUI.
136* Fixed hang on netstatus icon in auto-hidden panel.
137* Fixed icon grid compilation with GTK+ < 2.20.
138* Fixed compilation without menu-cache.
139* Now man pages are included in the GIT and tarball, not just xml files.
140* Fixed incorrect printf arguments in 'netstatus' plugin.
144* New plugin 'launchtaskbar' with combined functionality from 'launchbar'
145 and 'taskbar'. For easy support codebase is merged instead of doing
146 duplicates but appearance is still the same in dependency from mode
147 chosen.
148* Integrated with LibFM, all launching and application selection in the
149 launchbar settings is done by LibFM now.
150* New simpler plugins API implementation, using LibFM plugins loader. In
151 new API some callbacks were simplified and some removed, see all the
152 detailed descriptions in the file plugin.h.
153* New plugins are GtkWidgets now, therefore there is no explicit destroy
154 for them or their data, all will be handled implicitly.
155* Changed config access with simple API similar to libconfig one.
156* Using icon caching from LibFM.
157* Applications properties in the menu are managed by LibFM API, no more
158 calls to lxshortcut application.
159* Setting for file manager is not handled on its own but XDG setting is
160 used now, i.e. default choice for "inode/directory" MIME type.
161* Setting for terminal is handled by LibFM, therefore it is the same as
162 in PCManFM now, no own setting anymore.
163* Replaced configure option --enable-cast-checks with --enable-debug.
164* Replaced 'pager' plugin with former 'wnckpager' one. The 'wnckpager'
165 name is still supported for compatibility but it is the same plugin.
166* Added new plugin 'weather', written by Piotr Sipika.
167* Using drag & drop handling from LibFM in launchbar. It is possible now
168 to use any kind of files as launchbuttons, and folders can receive
169 drops as well.
170* Allowed drag applications from system menu plugin so they now can be
171 dropped somewhere. The obvious example is drop on the desktop.
172* Using human readable sensor names if available (like 'Core 0', etc.).
173* Panel is allowed to hide completely (setting width when hidden to 0).
174* The IconGrid converted into GtkContainer derived class PanelIconGrid.
175* Allowed to use <USER_CONFIG_DIR>/lxpanel/<profile>/gtkrc for the panel
176 custom style setup.
177* The panel itself in not a struct now but a GtkWindow derived class so
178 no special API to destroy it is required.
179* Improved the layout of icons in panel, they will not align to the edge
180 of screen but appropriately to panel height. Some of them did that
181 already but some were aligned to the screen edge without any gap.
182* The button to configure plugin in panel plugins configuration tab is
183 renamed from 'Edit' to 'Properties'.
184* All logging is unified. The option --log is deprecated and isn't used
185 anymore. User can change logs appearance using G_MESSAGES_DEBUG and
186 G_MESSAGES_PREFIXED environment variables (see GLib docs).
187* Old APIs are in place still for backward compatibility with third party
188 plugins but will be dropped later, supposedly on next feature release
189 point. Old APIs are not present in public headers, compatibility is
190 on binary level only.
191* A whole lot of bugfixes.
2171. Add manapages of lxpanelctl.
2182. Supported HWAddr status in netstat plugin.
2221. Add manpages.
2232. reduce memory usage and delete unused functions in netstat plugin.
2271. Fixed compile errors in configure and
2282. Deleted unused files.
2293. Add a new network status plugin - netstat (testing).
2304. Fixed incorrect path of icons.
2315. Changed icon size to reduce memory usage.
2326. Add LXDE-specific configuration profile for LXPanel.
2337. Use "*.directory" file for the translation of categories if available.
234 #1875624 - LXPanel does not correctly show xdg menus.
2358. Fixed tintcolor bug (Request ID 1900678).
