ac5ee186
AG
9* Added support for laptops with multiple batteries.
10* Added a way to scroll through workspaces by using the scroll wheel over
11 the deskno plugin.
a5a4d42e
AG
12* Bunch of fixes for GTK+ 3.0 compatibility.
13* Fixed outdated lxpanel man page.
14* Fixed weather locations query (since YQL was changed recently).
ee3cd18a
AG
15* Converted space plugin into internal PanelSpace widget in liblxpanel.
16* Converted task button into widget class to avoid ambiguous code.
82b8b535 17* Added support for third-party plugins localized descriptions.
5e636e99 18* Implemented "lxpanelctl command ..." to send message to panel plugin.
230200de 19* Added APIs for PanelIconGrid to draw focus on drop.
c28f3a49 20* Converted launch button into widget class for more easy management.
4f059fb3
AG
21* Adjusted PanelIconGrid: min spacing is now 1, no_window flag is now
22 left unset by default, spacing is taken into account on overall size
23 to be consistent on chosen orientation.
a4492fd4 24* Implemented dropping file or folder onto launch bar to create launcher.
6473286a 25* Implemented dragging launchers around launchbars (between panels too).
4f059fb3
AG
26* Implemented dropping file or folder onto free panel space to create
27 launcher.
8ce0881f
AG
28* Implemented dragging launchers from launchbar to some free panel space.
29 When launcher dropped onto another place and former place's launchbar
30 becomes empty, it will not be replaced with a bootstrapping icon (as
4f059fb3
AG
31 it happens when last launcher is removed via configuration dialog)
32 but launchbar will be removed from the panel instead, that behavior
33 is more obvious and sensible.
34* Added stripping scheme from URI menu://applications/... when a launcher
35 is created, only menu-id itself should be used.
5782c9b5
AG
36* Implemented moving plugins across panel by means of middle button drag
37 and drop, i.e. middle-click it then drag, and plugin will follow the
38 mouse until middle button is released.
9d4601f2
AG
39* Merged 'volume' and 'volumealsa' plugins into single plugin which uses
40 the same interface but different driver, in dependency on how it was
41 built - either OSS or ALSA interface is used. Name 'volume' is used
42 for simplicity while 'volumealsa' is supported for compatibility.
895885e3
AG
43* Made default channel in 'volume' plugin definable in config. If there
44 is no config statement then plugin finds first usable one, the same
45 as before.
46* Made clicks for Toggle Mute, Show Slider and Open Mixer actions of the
47 'volume' plugin configurable. Defaults are the same: left-click shows
48 slider, middle-click toggles mute state.
589cd33a 49* Added support for 'PCM' and 'Headphone' channels for OSS mixer.
decc23e2
AG
50* Added support for other (not default one) ALSA cards in 'volume' plugin
51 via 'CardNumber' setting.
650d2ca5
AG
52* Added hotkey support into 'volume' plugin to be able to use multimedia
53 keys for volume changing directly by plugin.
8e846d71 54* Fixed missing libkeybinder initialization (keybinding did not work).
686ea6b9
AG
55* Fixed check for attempt to add a binding for the same hotkey which is
56 already bound elsewhere.
9fc4c110
AG
57* Added a configuration dialog to the 'volume' plugin with all the new
58 settings available to choose and set, including preset of discovered
59 mixers, with ability to type own command as well.
6840d253
AG
60* Fixed crash on action on task window which was deleted while task menu
61 is still opened.
15d3ecb7 62* Fixed "dynamic" panel width allocation.
40b67abd
AG
63* Fixed PanelIconGrid allocation in rigth-to-left languages, it was wrong
64 so some icons might be invisible or placed under other plugins.
27e891a8
AG
65* Removed call to gtk_widget_set_style() from volume slider to fix colors
66 of current theme.
bc10a6da
AG
67* Changed icon size handling on task bar - it may now maintain the same
68 size as rest of icons. It may affect users who are used to have them
69 smaller, it's why this feature was made configurable, corresponding
70 config variable is UseSmallerIcons and default is 1 (old behavior).
bd32289b 71* Changed volume slider popup behavior - it now hides when loses focus.
e28af97a 72* Fixed invalid memory access in weather plugin.
b780053a
AG
73* Fixed incorrect reporting units on "Feel" value in weather plugin. YQL
74 always reports Fahrenheit degrees there.
0a92dd7c 75* Added a safeguard on menu cache returning items with empty Exec line.
c5834533 76* Fixed maximizing windows using task bar, GDK functions not always work.
d7022af2
AG
77* Fixed wrong bind of preferences dialog to the panel, which resulted in
78 other dialogs appear on the same workspace where preferences was.
36951942
AG
79* Expanded launch buttons active area to launchbar borders so if clicked
80 even into desktop corner, it should activate button at that corner.
cf07fc23
AG
81* Fixed few memory leaks in 'batt' plugin.
82* Removed unwanted conversions with energy for charge in 'batt' plugin
f10625d7
AG
83 which will mess up tooltip indications, and may make rate/percentage
84 calculations invalid.
01eabc96 85* Replaced Xclimsg() with Xclimsgx() to be screen aware with X11 message.
6bff912e
AG
86* Added a workaround for WM like MWM which does not properly resize down
87 widgets of panel kind. It still leaves artefacts but is better now.
65feec02
AG
88* Added a workaround on GtkBox behavior which does not send allocation
89 requests to children in some cases, so resizing of launchtaskbar on
90 panel height change was broken.
74c64ef8 91* Fixed PanelIconGrid layout on vertical panels with more than 1 column.
a5a4d42e
AG
92
930.8.2
94-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4d922895 95* Fixed crash in taskbar plugin after number of desktops was updated.
7129a2f9 96* Fixed incorrect panel geometry initialization.
bd653355 97* Fixed crash with invalid size of icon in _NET_WM_ICON property.
7f7a69a9 98* Fixed memory leak on 'indicator' plugin destruction.
a5a4d42e
AG
99* Replaced old commands:
100 - Use notify send instead of xmessage
101 - Use nm-connection-editor instead of network-admin
4d922895 102
5f289453
AG
1030.8.1
104-------------------------------------------------------------------------
17d22719 105* Improved OSS headers detection a bit.
edd6656c
AG
106* Fixed expand setting on plugins with default_expand when more than one
107 is available on the same panel.
d84a9662 108* Fixed icon for task button that retrieved using WM_HINTS.
66f3dd36 109* Fixed wrong PanelIconGrid arrangement in vertical panel orientation.
26ddbcdf
AG
110* Fixed missing handlers disconnect when destroying Task structure.
111* Removed writing debug messages to file when 'indicator' plugin is in
112 use - it will write all the debug there and that changes the behavior
113 which was not intended really.
714670bf 114* Corrected background for 'indicator' plugin.
a4fdf966 115* Fixed update 'indicator' plugin on configuration changes.
d8a48b39
AG
116* Fixed battery status: if discharge rate is 0 then it's charged.
117* Fixed incorrect cycle in netproc_devicelist_clear() leading to crash on
118 resume (after suspend).
119* Fixed scanning for temperature sensors which failed with some kernels.
35e581ff
AG
120* Changed reconfiguring panel behavior: callbacks to plugins will be sent
121 on idle, not immediately to avoid "stuck" spin button (and eventually
122 even crash was possible).
123* Fixed initial icon on 'volumealsa' to show real state instead of muted.
fa2dfe65
AG
124* Fixed 'dclock' updating that it will show time on start, not just on
125 next second change. It would create impression it's slow otherwise.
486e7e56 126* Fixed wrong task button activation on not processed drag of button.
17d22719
AG
127
1280.8.0
129-------------------------------------------------------------------------
53eed543 130* Added workaround for crash in gtk-run with old libmenu-cache.
2a971699
AG
131* Core functions are separated into a private library to allow reliable
132 linking of modules using -Wl,-z,defs.
98c7671a 133* Added macro LXPANEL_CHECK_VERSION() for third party pluguns API check.
6f4cf572 134* Added CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL support for lxpanel_generic_config_dlg().
9633d713
AG
135* Implemented property "aspect-width" for PanelIconGrid to allow using
136 non-square tray sockets.
ca4eee75
AG
137* Added support for monitors "All" to span panel over all monitors (i.e.
138 to allow pre-0.6.0 behavior).
51abba48 139* Implemented monitors hotplug support.
8fa1b626 140* Fixed popups positioning in multi-monitor environment.
b4bb3f6f
AG
141* Fixed updating panel size if appropriate monitor changed its size or
142 position.
143* Implemented disabling for "Reserve space" button if another monitor
144 lies beyond the edge so reservation will cover it. Also reservation
145 will not be applied in such cases even if set in config manually.
2d744915
AG
146* Some edge and monitors selections in panel configuration dialog may be
147 insensitive now if appropriate edge and monitor combination is not
148 available, to avoid panels stacking one over another.
12ddb4f8 149* Fixed bug with hidden panel disappearing after resolution change.
8a4622e5
AG
150* Add lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to replace another (obsolete) API
151 _gtk_image_new_from_file_scaled().
152* Added API panel_config_hotkey_button_new() to use as CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL
153 widget to allow configure global hotkeys for plugins functions.
f7a4447c
AG
154* Added API lxpanel_apply_hotkey() as a convenient libkeybinder interface
155 to use in modules that also use panel_config_hotkey_button_new(). Now
156 LXPanel requires libkeybinder too.
75d47917
AG
157* Added API panel_config_click_button_new() to configure mouse gestures
158 and panel_config_click_parse() to parse its output.
bf7645fc
AG
159* Added "icon-size-changed" signal to LXPanel which is emitted when icons
160 size in configuration dialog was changed.
8ec08843 161* Improved lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to follow panel icons size
6febec6d
AG
162 changes, not only theme changes. This way calls on lxpanel_image_*
163 APIs on theme or panel changes may be eliminated, i.e. code becomes
164 simpler.
5272f2d4
AG
165* Added new lxpanel_image_change_icon() API for simplification reasons so
166 other lxpanel_image_* APIs can be replaced completely.
88f6fc06
AG
167* APIs lxpanel_button_set_icon() lxpanel_button_update_icon() now don't
168 require setting icon size since created button already follows size
169 from panel settings. Also it doesn't require refresh after the panel
170 configuration change.
f7a4447c
AG
171* Disabled scaling up small icons in the taskbar: scaled up icons look
172 bad due to pixelization (patch from Anton Lobashev).
f7a4447c
AG
173* When adding new panel, now correctly edges of monitor where popup was
174 are tried before any other monitors.
5fcaaec5
AG
175* Correctly open 'netstat' plugin own menu on leftclick since rightclick
176 should open panel context menu instead.
0e614d34
AG
177* System critical temperature level in 'thermal' plugin now is properly
178 ignored if manual levels are active.
77067467 179* Fixed click on 'menu' plugin, only image was clickable, not whole area.
981461f6
AG
180* Added API panel_config_int_button_new() for generic plugin config spin
181 button with custom range, not just generic 0...1000.
7281b10b
AG
182* Fixed wrong behavior with PanelIconGrid constrained width after child
183 was removed: size wasn't always renegotiated correctly.
965980f0
AG
184* Fixed range of space reservation in multi-monitor setup (reservation
185 might cover another monitor).
45879f8d
AG
186* Numeric-only string will be saved now double-quoted to distinguish it
187 from number in config.
814756c1 188* Implemented flashing on task with urgency in grouped task list menu.
a47dfeae
AG
189* Disabled flashing on urgency hint if window has focus, most of window
190 managers do the same on window decorations.
4ebd3285
AG
191* Fixed border of 'batt' plugin, it should correctly use panel settings.
192 Also 'Size' setting of it doesn't include border width.
2bbdeeca 193* Allowed default alarmCommand on 'batt' plugin be translated.
2272be09 194* Implemented sorting plugins in Add plugin window in alphabetic order.
68b588ee 195* Fixed font in the weather plugin to use panel settings.
a3cf67bf 196* Added new API lxpanel_button_compose() for future usage by plugins.
a46b378a
AG
197* Added optional volumealsa plugin volume mapping from alsamixer (patch
198 from Peter).
4a1ab23c
AG
199* Added new API lxpanel_button_set_label() to change label of button that
200 was created using some lxpanel_button_*() API.
ddf489b7
AG
201* Added "panel-font-changed" signal to LXPanel to be able follow settings
202 change in font configuration of panel using lxpanel_button_*() API.
2d3ad209
AG
203* Fixed nasty bug with autohidden panel after unhide appeared for short
204 time somewhere at the screen.
2c4d4abe 205* Fixed calendar and configuration windows blinking on their appearance.
66b88e31 206* Fixed panel update when background image changed in configuration.
d1a4f8ad
AG
207* Changed to use persistent background image for panel and Cairo. This
208 way updating background should be faster, and also fixed background
209 of plugins when image is used, both placement and alpha color.
70e7cc8a
AB
210* Urgent window is now always visible on the taskbar irrelevant of the
211 desktop number on which it appears, because urgent window requires
212 user attention (patch from Andy Balaam).
ab1c56ec 213* Moved bit of code that is used out from src/bg.c and discarded src/bg.c
0234f3a2 214 from code used.
c869ce34
AG
215* Dropped setting members of Panel structure: workarea, wa_len, bg.
216* Replaced GtkComboBoxEntry in netstatus plugin window with GtkComboBox.
217* Simplified plugins background setting - they should never use any own
218 background but either use one from panel or from theme (depending on
219 panel configuration). This should improve performance.
74c0ae5e
AG
220* Don't update a whole panel background anymore after some plugin was
221 resized, only update the plugin itself to improve performance.
53eed543 222
66b35a6e
AG
2230.7.2
224-------------------------------------------------------------------------
9a762e63 225* Fixed unhiding panel if it becomes empty and height_when_hidden is 0.
880d25d2
AG
226* Fixed invalid X protocol word size: despite of stating it 32 bit, the X
227 server uses unsigned long which is 64 bit on 64-bit architectures.
228* Adapted to use libmenu-cache >= 1.0.0 - it could show empty folders in
229 the desktop menu.
f90deeee 230* Fixed crash in taskbar after visible task changed name then gone.
50928868 231* Ensured panel background update after some plugin was resized.
c6cfaae8 232* FileManager statement from old config should never be scanned again.
59c0082e 233* Fixed positioning of new created panel, the edge was not saved.
936b5d2f
AG
234* Eliminated hardcoded "xterm" in 'volumealsa' plugin - LibFM has enough
235 means to call terminal when needed.
aaf3b569 236* Fixed crash if 'volumealsa' plugin initialization failed.
9a762e63
AG
237
2380.7.1
239-------------------------------------------------------------------------
aff777b0
AG
240* Fixed search for the gtkrc file.
241* Fixed search path for configuration - it should be not compilation time
242 path but paths using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS.
243* Fixed incorrect flag for 'launchbar' plugin which marks him expandable.
244* Fixed dragging of task buttons.
245* Corrected using $XDG_MENU_PREFIX to work the same way as libfm does.
246* Fixed using font description, font in gtkrc file was ignored.
247* Improved search for hw sensors in /sys/class/hwmon/ hierarchy.
248* Improved check for critical temperatures in 'termal' plugin, now each
249 individual hardware setting (if available) is also taken into
250 consideration.
251* Fixed parsing alias name in 'weather' plugin settings.
252* Got rid of all individual plugins/*/Makefile - those rules more easily
253 can be contained in the plugins/Makefile.am. Adding a simple plugin
254 basically would mean to add three lines into that file instead of
255 writing whole Makefile.am.
6b697e41 256* Fixed invalid system config path search ("lxpanel" part was missing).
72312227
AG
257* Fixed incorrect requirements in the lxpanel.pc file.
258* Fixed memory leak in the 'volumealsa' plugin.
259* Now 'volumealsa' checks for 'MixerCommand' setting in the configuration
2e836237 260 before guessing it.
27d1361c 261* Fixed color saving in the configuration.
4b9bf724 262* Fixed incomplete resources deallocation in 'volumealsa' plugin.
8c590216 263* Fixed make uninstall (it left plugins installed).
6cc0426a 264* Fixed monitor number set from GUI.
60531c62
AG
265* Fixed hang on netstatus icon in auto-hidden panel.
266* Fixed icon grid compilation with GTK+ < 2.20.
2e836237 267* Fixed compilation without menu-cache.
e9463f99
AG
268* Now man pages are included in the GIT and tarball, not just xml files.
269* Fixed incorrect printf arguments in 'netstatus' plugin.
aff777b0 270
7a5d57c2
AG
2710.7.0
272-------------------------------------------------------------------------
273* New plugin 'launchtaskbar' with combined functionality from 'launchbar'
274 and 'taskbar'. For easy support codebase is merged instead of doing
275 duplicates but appearance is still the same in dependency from mode
276 chosen.
277* Integrated with LibFM, all launching and application selection in the
278 launchbar settings is done by LibFM now.
279* New simpler plugins API implementation, using LibFM plugins loader. In
280 new API some callbacks were simplified and some removed, see all the
281 detailed descriptions in the file plugin.h.
282* New plugins are GtkWidgets now, therefore there is no explicit destroy
283 for them or their data, all will be handled implicitly.
284* Changed config access with simple API similar to libconfig one.
285* Using icon caching from LibFM.
286* Applications properties in the menu are managed by LibFM API, no more
287 calls to lxshortcut application.
288* Setting for file manager is not handled on its own but XDG setting is
289 used now, i.e. default choice for "inode/directory" MIME type.
290* Setting for terminal is handled by LibFM, therefore it is the same as
291 in PCManFM now, no own setting anymore.
292* Replaced configure option --enable-cast-checks with --enable-debug.
293* Replaced 'pager' plugin with former 'wnckpager' one. The 'wnckpager'
294 name is still supported for compatibility but it is the same plugin.
295* Added new plugin 'weather', written by Piotr Sipika.
296* Using drag & drop handling from LibFM in launchbar. It is possible now
297 to use any kind of files as launchbuttons, and folders can receive
298 drops as well.
299* Allowed drag applications from system menu plugin so they now can be
300 dropped somewhere. The obvious example is drop on the desktop.
301* Using human readable sensor names if available (like 'Core 0', etc.).
302* Panel is allowed to hide completely (setting width when hidden to 0).
303* The IconGrid converted into GtkContainer derived class PanelIconGrid.
304* Allowed to use <USER_CONFIG_DIR>/lxpanel/<profile>/gtkrc for the panel
305 custom style setup.
306* The panel itself in not a struct now but a GtkWindow derived class so
307 no special API to destroy it is required.
308* Improved the layout of icons in panel, they will not align to the edge
309 of screen but appropriately to panel height. Some of them did that
310 already but some were aligned to the screen edge without any gap.
311* The button to configure plugin in panel plugins configuration tab is
312 renamed from 'Edit' to 'Properties'.
313* All logging is unified. The option --log is deprecated and isn't used
314 anymore. User can change logs appearance using G_MESSAGES_DEBUG and
315 G_MESSAGES_PREFIXED environment variables (see GLib docs).
316* Old APIs are in place still for backward compatibility with third party
317 plugins but will be dropped later, supposedly on next feature release
318 point. Old APIs are not present in public headers, compatibility is
319 on binary level only.
320* A whole lot of bugfixes.
