1* Added support for laptops with multiple batteries.
2* Added a way to scroll through workspaces by using the scroll wheel over
3 the deskno plugin.
a5a4d42e
AG
4* Bunch of fixes for GTK+ 3.0 compatibility.
5* Fixed outdated lxpanel man page.
6* Fixed weather locations query (since YQL was changed recently).
ee3cd18a
AG
7* Converted space plugin into internal PanelSpace widget in liblxpanel.
8* Converted task button into widget class to avoid ambiguous code.
82b8b535 9* Added support for third-party plugins localized descriptions.
5e636e99 10* Implemented "lxpanelctl command ..." to send message to panel plugin.
230200de 11* Added APIs for PanelIconGrid to draw focus on drop.
c28f3a49 12* Converted launch button into widget class for more easy management.
4f059fb3
AG
13* Adjusted PanelIconGrid: min spacing is now 1, no_window flag is now
14 left unset by default, spacing is taken into account on overall size
15 to be consistent on chosen orientation.
a4492fd4 16* Implemented dropping file or folder onto launch bar to create launcher.
6473286a 17* Implemented dragging launchers around launchbars (between panels too).
4f059fb3
AG
18* Implemented dropping file or folder onto free panel space to create
19 launcher.
8ce0881f
AG
20* Implemented dragging launchers from launchbar to some free panel space.
21 When launcher dropped onto another place and former place's launchbar
22 becomes empty, it will not be replaced with a bootstrapping icon (as
4f059fb3
AG
23 it happens when last launcher is removed via configuration dialog)
24 but launchbar will be removed from the panel instead, that behavior
25 is more obvious and sensible.
26* Added stripping scheme from URI menu://applications/... when a launcher
27 is created, only menu-id itself should be used.
5782c9b5
AG
28* Implemented moving plugins across panel by means of middle button drag
29 and drop, i.e. middle-click it then drag, and plugin will follow the
30 mouse until middle button is released.
9d4601f2
AG
31* Merged 'volume' and 'volumealsa' plugins into single plugin which uses
32 the same interface but different driver, in dependency on how it was
33 built - either OSS or ALSA interface is used. Name 'volume' is used
34 for simplicity while 'volumealsa' is supported for compatibility.
895885e3
AG
35* Made default channel in 'volume' plugin definable in config. If there
36 is no config statement then plugin finds first usable one, the same
37 as before.
38* Made clicks for Toggle Mute, Show Slider and Open Mixer actions of the
39 'volume' plugin configurable. Defaults are the same: left-click shows
40 slider, middle-click toggles mute state.
589cd33a 41* Added support for 'PCM' and 'Headphone' channels for OSS mixer.
decc23e2
AG
42* Added support for other (not default one) ALSA cards in 'volume' plugin
43 via 'CardNumber' setting.
650d2ca5
AG
44* Added hotkey support into 'volume' plugin to be able to use multimedia
45 keys for volume changing directly by plugin.
8e846d71 46* Fixed missing libkeybinder initialization (keybinding did not work).
686ea6b9
AG
47* Fixed check for attempt to add a binding for the same hotkey which is
48 already bound elsewhere.
9fc4c110
AG
49* Added a configuration dialog to the 'volume' plugin with all the new
50 settings available to choose and set, including preset of discovered
51 mixers, with ability to type own command as well.
6840d253
AG
52* Fixed crash on action on task window which was deleted while task menu
53 is still opened.
15d3ecb7 54* Fixed "dynamic" panel width allocation.
40b67abd
AG
55* Fixed PanelIconGrid allocation in rigth-to-left languages, it was wrong
56 so some icons might be invisible or placed under other plugins.
27e891a8
AG
57* Removed call to gtk_widget_set_style() from volume slider to fix colors
58 of current theme.
bc10a6da
AG
59* Changed icon size handling on task bar - it may now maintain the same
60 size as rest of icons. It may affect users who are used to have them
61 smaller, it's why this feature was made configurable, corresponding
62 config variable is UseSmallerIcons and default is 1 (old behavior).
bd32289b 63* Changed volume slider popup behavior - it now hides when loses focus.
e28af97a 64* Fixed invalid memory access in weather plugin.
b780053a
AG
65* Fixed incorrect reporting units on "Feel" value in weather plugin. YQL
66 always reports Fahrenheit degrees there.
0a92dd7c 67* Added a safeguard on menu cache returning items with empty Exec line.
c5834533 68* Fixed maximizing windows using task bar, GDK functions not always work.
d7022af2
AG
69* Fixed wrong bind of preferences dialog to the panel, which resulted in
70 other dialogs appear on the same workspace where preferences was.
36951942
AG
71* Expanded launch buttons active area to launchbar borders so if clicked
72 even into desktop corner, it should activate button at that corner.
cf07fc23
AG
73* Fixed few memory leaks in 'batt' plugin.
74* Removed unwanted conversions with energy for charge in 'batt' plugin
f10625d7
AG
75 which will mess up tooltip indications, and may make rate/percentage
76 calculations invalid.
01eabc96 77* Replaced Xclimsg() with Xclimsgx() to be screen aware with X11 message.
6bff912e
AG
78* Added a workaround for WM like MWM which does not properly resize down
79 widgets of panel kind. It still leaves artefacts but is better now.
a5a4d42e
AG
80
810.8.2
82-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4d922895 83* Fixed crash in taskbar plugin after number of desktops was updated.
7129a2f9 84* Fixed incorrect panel geometry initialization.
bd653355 85* Fixed crash with invalid size of icon in _NET_WM_ICON property.
7f7a69a9 86* Fixed memory leak on 'indicator' plugin destruction.
a5a4d42e
AG
87* Replaced old commands:
88 - Use notify send instead of xmessage
89 - Use nm-connection-editor instead of network-admin
4d922895 90
5f289453
AG
910.8.1
92-------------------------------------------------------------------------
17d22719 93* Improved OSS headers detection a bit.
edd6656c
AG
94* Fixed expand setting on plugins with default_expand when more than one
95 is available on the same panel.
d84a9662 96* Fixed icon for task button that retrieved using WM_HINTS.
66f3dd36 97* Fixed wrong PanelIconGrid arrangement in vertical panel orientation.
26ddbcdf
AG
98* Fixed missing handlers disconnect when destroying Task structure.
99* Removed writing debug messages to file when 'indicator' plugin is in
100 use - it will write all the debug there and that changes the behavior
101 which was not intended really.
714670bf 102* Corrected background for 'indicator' plugin.
a4fdf966 103* Fixed update 'indicator' plugin on configuration changes.
d8a48b39
AG
104* Fixed battery status: if discharge rate is 0 then it's charged.
105* Fixed incorrect cycle in netproc_devicelist_clear() leading to crash on
106 resume (after suspend).
107* Fixed scanning for temperature sensors which failed with some kernels.
35e581ff
AG
108* Changed reconfiguring panel behavior: callbacks to plugins will be sent
109 on idle, not immediately to avoid "stuck" spin button (and eventually
110 even crash was possible).
111* Fixed initial icon on 'volumealsa' to show real state instead of muted.
fa2dfe65
AG
112* Fixed 'dclock' updating that it will show time on start, not just on
113 next second change. It would create impression it's slow otherwise.
486e7e56 114* Fixed wrong task button activation on not processed drag of button.
17d22719
AG
115
1160.8.0
117-------------------------------------------------------------------------
53eed543 118* Added workaround for crash in gtk-run with old libmenu-cache.
2a971699
AG
119* Core functions are separated into a private library to allow reliable
120 linking of modules using -Wl,-z,defs.
98c7671a 121* Added macro LXPANEL_CHECK_VERSION() for third party pluguns API check.
6f4cf572 122* Added CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL support for lxpanel_generic_config_dlg().
9633d713
AG
123* Implemented property "aspect-width" for PanelIconGrid to allow using
124 non-square tray sockets.
ca4eee75
AG
125* Added support for monitors "All" to span panel over all monitors (i.e.
126 to allow pre-0.6.0 behavior).
51abba48 127* Implemented monitors hotplug support.
8fa1b626 128* Fixed popups positioning in multi-monitor environment.
b4bb3f6f
AG
129* Fixed updating panel size if appropriate monitor changed its size or
130 position.
131* Implemented disabling for "Reserve space" button if another monitor
132 lies beyond the edge so reservation will cover it. Also reservation
133 will not be applied in such cases even if set in config manually.
2d744915
AG
134* Some edge and monitors selections in panel configuration dialog may be
135 insensitive now if appropriate edge and monitor combination is not
136 available, to avoid panels stacking one over another.
12ddb4f8 137* Fixed bug with hidden panel disappearing after resolution change.
8a4622e5
AG
138* Add lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to replace another (obsolete) API
139 _gtk_image_new_from_file_scaled().
140* Added API panel_config_hotkey_button_new() to use as CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL
141 widget to allow configure global hotkeys for plugins functions.
f7a4447c
AG
142* Added API lxpanel_apply_hotkey() as a convenient libkeybinder interface
143 to use in modules that also use panel_config_hotkey_button_new(). Now
144 LXPanel requires libkeybinder too.
75d47917
AG
145* Added API panel_config_click_button_new() to configure mouse gestures
146 and panel_config_click_parse() to parse its output.
bf7645fc
AG
147* Added "icon-size-changed" signal to LXPanel which is emitted when icons
148 size in configuration dialog was changed.
8ec08843 149* Improved lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to follow panel icons size
6febec6d
AG
150 changes, not only theme changes. This way calls on lxpanel_image_*
151 APIs on theme or panel changes may be eliminated, i.e. code becomes
152 simpler.
5272f2d4
AG
153* Added new lxpanel_image_change_icon() API for simplification reasons so
154 other lxpanel_image_* APIs can be replaced completely.
88f6fc06
AG
155* APIs lxpanel_button_set_icon() lxpanel_button_update_icon() now don't
156 require setting icon size since created button already follows size
157 from panel settings. Also it doesn't require refresh after the panel
158 configuration change.
f7a4447c
AG
159* Disabled scaling up small icons in the taskbar: scaled up icons look
160 bad due to pixelization (patch from Anton Lobashev).
f7a4447c
AG
161* When adding new panel, now correctly edges of monitor where popup was
162 are tried before any other monitors.
5fcaaec5
AG
163* Correctly open 'netstat' plugin own menu on leftclick since rightclick
164 should open panel context menu instead.
0e614d34
AG
165* System critical temperature level in 'thermal' plugin now is properly
166 ignored if manual levels are active.
77067467 167* Fixed click on 'menu' plugin, only image was clickable, not whole area.
981461f6
AG
168* Added API panel_config_int_button_new() for generic plugin config spin
169 button with custom range, not just generic 0...1000.
7281b10b
AG
170* Fixed wrong behavior with PanelIconGrid constrained width after child
171 was removed: size wasn't always renegotiated correctly.
965980f0
AG
172* Fixed range of space reservation in multi-monitor setup (reservation
173 might cover another monitor).
45879f8d
AG
174* Numeric-only string will be saved now double-quoted to distinguish it
175 from number in config.
814756c1 176* Implemented flashing on task with urgency in grouped task list menu.
a47dfeae
AG
177* Disabled flashing on urgency hint if window has focus, most of window
178 managers do the same on window decorations.
4ebd3285
AG
179* Fixed border of 'batt' plugin, it should correctly use panel settings.
180 Also 'Size' setting of it doesn't include border width.
2bbdeeca 181* Allowed default alarmCommand on 'batt' plugin be translated.
2272be09 182* Implemented sorting plugins in Add plugin window in alphabetic order.
68b588ee 183* Fixed font in the weather plugin to use panel settings.
a3cf67bf 184* Added new API lxpanel_button_compose() for future usage by plugins.
a46b378a
AG
185* Added optional volumealsa plugin volume mapping from alsamixer (patch
186 from Peter).
4a1ab23c
AG
187* Added new API lxpanel_button_set_label() to change label of button that
188 was created using some lxpanel_button_*() API.
ddf489b7
AG
189* Added "panel-font-changed" signal to LXPanel to be able follow settings
190 change in font configuration of panel using lxpanel_button_*() API.
2d3ad209
AG
191* Fixed nasty bug with autohidden panel after unhide appeared for short
192 time somewhere at the screen.
2c4d4abe 193* Fixed calendar and configuration windows blinking on their appearance.
66b88e31 194* Fixed panel update when background image changed in configuration.
d1a4f8ad
AG
195* Changed to use persistent background image for panel and Cairo. This
196 way updating background should be faster, and also fixed background
197 of plugins when image is used, both placement and alpha color.
70e7cc8a
AB
198* Urgent window is now always visible on the taskbar irrelevant of the
199 desktop number on which it appears, because urgent window requires
200 user attention (patch from Andy Balaam).
ab1c56ec 201* Moved bit of code that is used out from src/bg.c and discarded src/bg.c
0234f3a2 202 from code used.
c869ce34
AG
203* Dropped setting members of Panel structure: workarea, wa_len, bg.
204* Replaced GtkComboBoxEntry in netstatus plugin window with GtkComboBox.
205* Simplified plugins background setting - they should never use any own
206 background but either use one from panel or from theme (depending on
207 panel configuration). This should improve performance.
74c0ae5e
AG
208* Don't update a whole panel background anymore after some plugin was
209 resized, only update the plugin itself to improve performance.
53eed543 210
66b35a6e
AG
2110.7.2
212-------------------------------------------------------------------------
9a762e63 213* Fixed unhiding panel if it becomes empty and height_when_hidden is 0.
880d25d2
AG
214* Fixed invalid X protocol word size: despite of stating it 32 bit, the X
215 server uses unsigned long which is 64 bit on 64-bit architectures.
216* Adapted to use libmenu-cache >= 1.0.0 - it could show empty folders in
217 the desktop menu.
f90deeee 218* Fixed crash in taskbar after visible task changed name then gone.
50928868 219* Ensured panel background update after some plugin was resized.
c6cfaae8 220* FileManager statement from old config should never be scanned again.
59c0082e 221* Fixed positioning of new created panel, the edge was not saved.
936b5d2f
AG
222* Eliminated hardcoded "xterm" in 'volumealsa' plugin - LibFM has enough
223 means to call terminal when needed.
aaf3b569 224* Fixed crash if 'volumealsa' plugin initialization failed.
9a762e63
AG
225
2260.7.1
227-------------------------------------------------------------------------
aff777b0
AG
228* Fixed search for the gtkrc file.
229* Fixed search path for configuration - it should be not compilation time
230 path but paths using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS.
231* Fixed incorrect flag for 'launchbar' plugin which marks him expandable.
232* Fixed dragging of task buttons.
233* Corrected using $XDG_MENU_PREFIX to work the same way as libfm does.
234* Fixed using font description, font in gtkrc file was ignored.
235* Improved search for hw sensors in /sys/class/hwmon/ hierarchy.
236* Improved check for critical temperatures in 'termal' plugin, now each
237 individual hardware setting (if available) is also taken into
238 consideration.
239* Fixed parsing alias name in 'weather' plugin settings.
240* Got rid of all individual plugins/*/Makefile - those rules more easily
241 can be contained in the plugins/Makefile.am. Adding a simple plugin
242 basically would mean to add three lines into that file instead of
243 writing whole Makefile.am.
6b697e41 244* Fixed invalid system config path search ("lxpanel" part was missing).
72312227
AG
245* Fixed incorrect requirements in the lxpanel.pc file.
246* Fixed memory leak in the 'volumealsa' plugin.
247* Now 'volumealsa' checks for 'MixerCommand' setting in the configuration
2e836237 248 before guessing it.
27d1361c 249* Fixed color saving in the configuration.
4b9bf724 250* Fixed incomplete resources deallocation in 'volumealsa' plugin.
8c590216 251* Fixed make uninstall (it left plugins installed).
6cc0426a 252* Fixed monitor number set from GUI.
60531c62
AG
253* Fixed hang on netstatus icon in auto-hidden panel.
254* Fixed icon grid compilation with GTK+ < 2.20.
2e836237 255* Fixed compilation without menu-cache.
e9463f99
AG
256* Now man pages are included in the GIT and tarball, not just xml files.
257* Fixed incorrect printf arguments in 'netstatus' plugin.
aff777b0 258

AG
2590.7.0
260-------------------------------------------------------------------------
261* New plugin 'launchtaskbar' with combined functionality from 'launchbar'
262 and 'taskbar'. For easy support codebase is merged instead of doing
263 duplicates but appearance is still the same in dependency from mode
264 chosen.
265* Integrated with LibFM, all launching and application selection in the
266 launchbar settings is done by LibFM now.
267* New simpler plugins API implementation, using LibFM plugins loader. In
268 new API some callbacks were simplified and some removed, see all the
269 detailed descriptions in the file plugin.h.
270* New plugins are GtkWidgets now, therefore there is no explicit destroy
271 for them or their data, all will be handled implicitly.
272* Changed config access with simple API similar to libconfig one.
273* Using icon caching from LibFM.
274* Applications properties in the menu are managed by LibFM API, no more
275 calls to lxshortcut application.
276* Setting for file manager is not handled on its own but XDG setting is
277 used now, i.e. default choice for "inode/directory" MIME type.
278* Setting for terminal is handled by LibFM, therefore it is the same as
279 in PCManFM now, no own setting anymore.
280* Replaced configure option --enable-cast-checks with --enable-debug.
281* Replaced 'pager' plugin with former 'wnckpager' one. The 'wnckpager'
282 name is still supported for compatibility but it is the same plugin.
283* Added new plugin 'weather', written by Piotr Sipika.
284* Using drag & drop handling from LibFM in launchbar. It is possible now
285 to use any kind of files as launchbuttons, and folders can receive
286 drops as well.
287* Allowed drag applications from system menu plugin so they now can be
288 dropped somewhere. The obvious example is drop on the desktop.
289* Using human readable sensor names if available (like 'Core 0', etc.).
290* Panel is allowed to hide completely (setting width when hidden to 0).
291* The IconGrid converted into GtkContainer derived class PanelIconGrid.
292* Allowed to use <USER_CONFIG_DIR>/lxpanel/<profile>/gtkrc for the panel
293 custom style setup.
294* The panel itself in not a struct now but a GtkWindow derived class so
295 no special API to destroy it is required.
296* Improved the layout of icons in panel, they will not align to the edge
297 of screen but appropriately to panel height. Some of them did that
298 already but some were aligned to the screen edge without any gap.
299* The button to configure plugin in panel plugins configuration tab is
300 renamed from 'Edit' to 'Properties'.
301* All logging is unified. The option --log is deprecated and isn't used
302 anymore. User can change logs appearance using G_MESSAGES_DEBUG and
303 G_MESSAGES_PREFIXED environment variables (see GLib docs).
304* Old APIs are in place still for backward compatibility with third party
305 plugins but will be dropped later, supposedly on next feature release
306 point. Old APIs are not present in public headers, compatibility is
307 on binary level only.
308* A whole lot of bugfixes.
