60.8.1
7-------------------------------------------------------------------------

edd6656c
AG
9* Fixed expand setting on plugins with default_expand when more than one
10 is available on the same panel.
d84a9662 11* Fixed icon for task button that retrieved using WM_HINTS.

26ddbcdf
AG
13* Fixed missing handlers disconnect when destroying Task structure.
14* Removed writing debug messages to file when 'indicator' plugin is in
15 use - it will write all the debug there and that changes the behavior
16 which was not intended really.
714670bf 17* Corrected background for 'indicator' plugin.
a4fdf966 18* Fixed update 'indicator' plugin on configuration changes.
d8a48b39
AG
19* Fixed battery status: if discharge rate is 0 then it's charged.
20* Fixed incorrect cycle in netproc_devicelist_clear() leading to crash on
21 resume (after suspend).
22* Fixed scanning for temperature sensors which failed with some kernels.
35e581ff
AG
23* Changed reconfiguring panel behavior: callbacks to plugins will be sent
24 on idle, not immediately to avoid "stuck" spin button (and eventually
25 even crash was possible).
26* Fixed initial icon on 'volumealsa' to show real state instead of muted.
fa2dfe65
AG
27* Fixed 'dclock' updating that it will show time on start, not just on
28 next second change. It would create impression it's slow otherwise.
486e7e56 29* Fixed wrong task button activation on not processed drag of button.

310.8.0
32-------------------------------------------------------------------------
53eed543 33* Added workaround for crash in gtk-run with old libmenu-cache.
2a971699
AG
34* Core functions are separated into a private library to allow reliable
35 linking of modules using -Wl,-z,defs.
98c7671a 36* Added macro LXPANEL_CHECK_VERSION() for third party pluguns API check.
6f4cf572 37* Added CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL support for lxpanel_generic_config_dlg().
9633d713
AG
38* Implemented property "aspect-width" for PanelIconGrid to allow using
39 non-square tray sockets.
ca4eee75
AG
40* Added support for monitors "All" to span panel over all monitors (i.e.
41 to allow pre-0.6.0 behavior).
51abba48 42* Implemented monitors hotplug support.
8fa1b626 43* Fixed popups positioning in multi-monitor environment.
b4bb3f6f
AG
44* Fixed updating panel size if appropriate monitor changed its size or
45 position.
46* Implemented disabling for "Reserve space" button if another monitor
47 lies beyond the edge so reservation will cover it. Also reservation
48 will not be applied in such cases even if set in config manually.
2d744915
AG
49* Some edge and monitors selections in panel configuration dialog may be
50 insensitive now if appropriate edge and monitor combination is not
51 available, to avoid panels stacking one over another.
12ddb4f8 52* Fixed bug with hidden panel disappearing after resolution change.
8a4622e5
AG
53* Add lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to replace another (obsolete) API
54 _gtk_image_new_from_file_scaled().
55* Added API panel_config_hotkey_button_new() to use as CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL
56 widget to allow configure global hotkeys for plugins functions.
f7a4447c
AG
57* Added API lxpanel_apply_hotkey() as a convenient libkeybinder interface
58 to use in modules that also use panel_config_hotkey_button_new(). Now
59 LXPanel requires libkeybinder too.
75d47917
AG
60* Added API panel_config_click_button_new() to configure mouse gestures
61 and panel_config_click_parse() to parse its output.
bf7645fc
AG
62* Added "icon-size-changed" signal to LXPanel which is emitted when icons
63 size in configuration dialog was changed.
8ec08843 64* Improved lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to follow panel icons size
6febec6d
AG
65 changes, not only theme changes. This way calls on lxpanel_image_*
66 APIs on theme or panel changes may be eliminated, i.e. code becomes
67 simpler.
5272f2d4
AG
68* Added new lxpanel_image_change_icon() API for simplification reasons so
69 other lxpanel_image_* APIs can be replaced completely.
88f6fc06
AG
70* APIs lxpanel_button_set_icon() lxpanel_button_update_icon() now don't
71 require setting icon size since created button already follows size
72 from panel settings. Also it doesn't require refresh after the panel
73 configuration change.
f7a4447c
AG
74* Disabled scaling up small icons in the taskbar: scaled up icons look
75 bad due to pixelization (patch from Anton Lobashev).
f7a4447c
AG
76* When adding new panel, now correctly edges of monitor where popup was
77 are tried before any other monitors.
5fcaaec5
AG
78* Correctly open 'netstat' plugin own menu on leftclick since rightclick
79 should open panel context menu instead.
0e614d34
AG
80* System critical temperature level in 'thermal' plugin now is properly
81 ignored if manual levels are active.
77067467 82* Fixed click on 'menu' plugin, only image was clickable, not whole area.
981461f6
AG
83* Added API panel_config_int_button_new() for generic plugin config spin
84 button with custom range, not just generic 0...1000.
7281b10b
AG
85* Fixed wrong behavior with PanelIconGrid constrained width after child
86 was removed: size wasn't always renegotiated correctly.
965980f0
AG
87* Fixed range of space reservation in multi-monitor setup (reservation
88 might cover another monitor).
45879f8d
AG
89* Numeric-only string will be saved now double-quoted to distinguish it
90 from number in config.
814756c1 91* Implemented flashing on task with urgency in grouped task list menu.
a47dfeae
AG
92* Disabled flashing on urgency hint if window has focus, most of window
93 managers do the same on window decorations.
4ebd3285
AG
94* Fixed border of 'batt' plugin, it should correctly use panel settings.
95 Also 'Size' setting of it doesn't include border width.
2bbdeeca 96* Allowed default alarmCommand on 'batt' plugin be translated.
2272be09 97* Implemented sorting plugins in Add plugin window in alphabetic order.
68b588ee 98* Fixed font in the weather plugin to use panel settings.
a3cf67bf 99* Added new API lxpanel_button_compose() for future usage by plugins.
a46b378a
AG
100* Added optional volumealsa plugin volume mapping from alsamixer (patch
101 from Peter).
4a1ab23c
AG
102* Added new API lxpanel_button_set_label() to change label of button that
103 was created using some lxpanel_button_*() API.
ddf489b7
AG
104* Added "panel-font-changed" signal to LXPanel to be able follow settings
105 change in font configuration of panel using lxpanel_button_*() API.
2d3ad209
AG
106* Fixed nasty bug with autohidden panel after unhide appeared for short
107 time somewhere at the screen.
2c4d4abe 108* Fixed calendar and configuration windows blinking on their appearance.
66b88e31 109* Fixed panel update when background image changed in configuration.
d1a4f8ad
AG
110* Changed to use persistent background image for panel and Cairo. This
111 way updating background should be faster, and also fixed background
112 of plugins when image is used, both placement and alpha color.
70e7cc8a
AB
113* Urgent window is now always visible on the taskbar irrelevant of the
114 desktop number on which it appears, because urgent window requires
115 user attention (patch from Andy Balaam).
ab1c56ec 116* Moved bit of code that is used out from src/bg.c and discarded src/bg.c
0234f3a2 117 from code used.
c869ce34
AG
118* Dropped setting members of Panel structure: workarea, wa_len, bg.
119* Replaced GtkComboBoxEntry in netstatus plugin window with GtkComboBox.
120* Simplified plugins background setting - they should never use any own
121 background but either use one from panel or from theme (depending on
122 panel configuration). This should improve performance.
74c0ae5e
AG
123* Don't update a whole panel background anymore after some plugin was
124 resized, only update the plugin itself to improve performance.
53eed543 125
66b35a6e
AG
1260.7.2
127-------------------------------------------------------------------------
9a762e63 128* Fixed unhiding panel if it becomes empty and height_when_hidden is 0.
880d25d2
AG
129* Fixed invalid X protocol word size: despite of stating it 32 bit, the X
130 server uses unsigned long which is 64 bit on 64-bit architectures.
131* Adapted to use libmenu-cache >= 1.0.0 - it could show empty folders in
132 the desktop menu.
f90deeee 133* Fixed crash in taskbar after visible task changed name then gone.
50928868 134* Ensured panel background update after some plugin was resized.
c6cfaae8 135* FileManager statement from old config should never be scanned again.
59c0082e 136* Fixed positioning of new created panel, the edge was not saved.
936b5d2f
AG
137* Eliminated hardcoded "xterm" in 'volumealsa' plugin - LibFM has enough
138 means to call terminal when needed.
aaf3b569 139* Fixed crash if 'volumealsa' plugin initialization failed.
9a762e63
AG

1410.7.1
142-------------------------------------------------------------------------
aff777b0
AG
143* Fixed search for the gtkrc file.
144* Fixed search path for configuration - it should be not compilation time
145 path but paths using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS.
146* Fixed incorrect flag for 'launchbar' plugin which marks him expandable.
147* Fixed dragging of task buttons.
148* Corrected using $XDG_MENU_PREFIX to work the same way as libfm does.
149* Fixed using font description, font in gtkrc file was ignored.
150* Improved search for hw sensors in /sys/class/hwmon/ hierarchy.
151* Improved check for critical temperatures in 'termal' plugin, now each
152 individual hardware setting (if available) is also taken into
153 consideration.
154* Fixed parsing alias name in 'weather' plugin settings.
155* Got rid of all individual plugins/*/Makefile - those rules more easily
156 can be contained in the plugins/Makefile.am. Adding a simple plugin
157 basically would mean to add three lines into that file instead of
158 writing whole Makefile.am.
6b697e41 159* Fixed invalid system config path search ("lxpanel" part was missing).
72312227
AG
160* Fixed incorrect requirements in the lxpanel.pc file.
161* Fixed memory leak in the 'volumealsa' plugin.
162* Now 'volumealsa' checks for 'MixerCommand' setting in the configuration
2e836237 163 before guessing it.
27d1361c 164* Fixed color saving in the configuration.
4b9bf724 165* Fixed incomplete resources deallocation in 'volumealsa' plugin.
8c590216 166* Fixed make uninstall (it left plugins installed).
6cc0426a 167* Fixed monitor number set from GUI.
60531c62
AG
168* Fixed hang on netstatus icon in auto-hidden panel.
169* Fixed icon grid compilation with GTK+ < 2.20.
2e836237 170* Fixed compilation without menu-cache.
e9463f99
AG
171* Now man pages are included in the GIT and tarball, not just xml files.
172* Fixed incorrect printf arguments in 'netstatus' plugin.

1740.7.0
175-------------------------------------------------------------------------
176* New plugin 'launchtaskbar' with combined functionality from 'launchbar'
177 and 'taskbar'. For easy support codebase is merged instead of doing
178 duplicates but appearance is still the same in dependency from mode
179 chosen.
180* Integrated with LibFM, all launching and application selection in the
181 launchbar settings is done by LibFM now.
182* New simpler plugins API implementation, using LibFM plugins loader. In
183 new API some callbacks were simplified and some removed, see all the
184 detailed descriptions in the file plugin.h.
185* New plugins are GtkWidgets now, therefore there is no explicit destroy
186 for them or their data, all will be handled implicitly.
187* Changed config access with simple API similar to libconfig one.
188* Using icon caching from LibFM.
189* Applications properties in the menu are managed by LibFM API, no more
190 calls to lxshortcut application.
191* Setting for file manager is not handled on its own but XDG setting is
192 used now, i.e. default choice for "inode/directory" MIME type.
193* Setting for terminal is handled by LibFM, therefore it is the same as
194 in PCManFM now, no own setting anymore.
195* Replaced configure option --enable-cast-checks with --enable-debug.
196* Replaced 'pager' plugin with former 'wnckpager' one. The 'wnckpager'
197 name is still supported for compatibility but it is the same plugin.
198* Added new plugin 'weather', written by Piotr Sipika.
199* Using drag & drop handling from LibFM in launchbar. It is possible now
200 to use any kind of files as launchbuttons, and folders can receive
201 drops as well.
202* Allowed drag applications from system menu plugin so they now can be
203 dropped somewhere. The obvious example is drop on the desktop.
204* Using human readable sensor names if available (like 'Core 0', etc.).
205* Panel is allowed to hide completely (setting width when hidden to 0).
206* The IconGrid converted into GtkContainer derived class PanelIconGrid.
207* Allowed to use <USER_CONFIG_DIR>/lxpanel/<profile>/gtkrc for the panel
208 custom style setup.
209* The panel itself in not a struct now but a GtkWindow derived class so
210 no special API to destroy it is required.
211* Improved the layout of icons in panel, they will not align to the edge
212 of screen but appropriately to panel height. Some of them did that
213 already but some were aligned to the screen edge without any gap.
214* The button to configure plugin in panel plugins configuration tab is
215 renamed from 'Edit' to 'Properties'.
216* All logging is unified. The option --log is deprecated and isn't used
217 anymore. User can change logs appearance using G_MESSAGES_DEBUG and
218 G_MESSAGES_PREFIXED environment variables (see GLib docs).
219* Old APIs are in place still for backward compatibility with third party
220 plugins but will be dropped later, supposedly on next feature release
221 point. Old APIs are not present in public headers, compatibility is
222 on binary level only.
223* A whole lot of bugfixes.
