270.8.1
28-------------------------------------------------------------------------
17d22719 29* Improved OSS headers detection a bit.
edd6656c
AG
30* Fixed expand setting on plugins with default_expand when more than one
31 is available on the same panel.
d84a9662 32* Fixed icon for task button that retrieved using WM_HINTS.
66f3dd36 33* Fixed wrong PanelIconGrid arrangement in vertical panel orientation.
26ddbcdf
AG
34* Fixed missing handlers disconnect when destroying Task structure.
35* Removed writing debug messages to file when 'indicator' plugin is in
36 use - it will write all the debug there and that changes the behavior
37 which was not intended really.
714670bf 38* Corrected background for 'indicator' plugin.
a4fdf966 39* Fixed update 'indicator' plugin on configuration changes.
d8a48b39
AG
40* Fixed battery status: if discharge rate is 0 then it's charged.
41* Fixed incorrect cycle in netproc_devicelist_clear() leading to crash on
42 resume (after suspend).
43* Fixed scanning for temperature sensors which failed with some kernels.
35e581ff
AG
44* Changed reconfiguring panel behavior: callbacks to plugins will be sent
45 on idle, not immediately to avoid "stuck" spin button (and eventually
46 even crash was possible).
47* Fixed initial icon on 'volumealsa' to show real state instead of muted.
fa2dfe65
AG
48* Fixed 'dclock' updating that it will show time on start, not just on
49 next second change. It would create impression it's slow otherwise.
486e7e56 50* Fixed wrong task button activation on not processed drag of button.
17d22719
AG

520.8.0
53-------------------------------------------------------------------------
53eed543 54* Added workaround for crash in gtk-run with old libmenu-cache.
2a971699
AG
55* Core functions are separated into a private library to allow reliable
56 linking of modules using -Wl,-z,defs.
98c7671a 57* Added macro LXPANEL_CHECK_VERSION() for third party pluguns API check.
6f4cf572 58* Added CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL support for lxpanel_generic_config_dlg().
9633d713
AG
59* Implemented property "aspect-width" for PanelIconGrid to allow using
60 non-square tray sockets.
ca4eee75
AG
61* Added support for monitors "All" to span panel over all monitors (i.e.
62 to allow pre-0.6.0 behavior).
51abba48 63* Implemented monitors hotplug support.
8fa1b626 64* Fixed popups positioning in multi-monitor environment.
b4bb3f6f
AG
65* Fixed updating panel size if appropriate monitor changed its size or
66 position.
67* Implemented disabling for "Reserve space" button if another monitor
68 lies beyond the edge so reservation will cover it. Also reservation
69 will not be applied in such cases even if set in config manually.
2d744915
AG
70* Some edge and monitors selections in panel configuration dialog may be
71 insensitive now if appropriate edge and monitor combination is not
72 available, to avoid panels stacking one over another.
12ddb4f8 73* Fixed bug with hidden panel disappearing after resolution change.
8a4622e5
AG
74* Add lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to replace another (obsolete) API
75 _gtk_image_new_from_file_scaled().
76* Added API panel_config_hotkey_button_new() to use as CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL
77 widget to allow configure global hotkeys for plugins functions.
f7a4447c
AG
78* Added API lxpanel_apply_hotkey() as a convenient libkeybinder interface
79 to use in modules that also use panel_config_hotkey_button_new(). Now
80 LXPanel requires libkeybinder too.
75d47917
AG
81* Added API panel_config_click_button_new() to configure mouse gestures
82 and panel_config_click_parse() to parse its output.
bf7645fc
AG
83* Added "icon-size-changed" signal to LXPanel which is emitted when icons
84 size in configuration dialog was changed.
8ec08843 85* Improved lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to follow panel icons size
6febec6d
AG
86 changes, not only theme changes. This way calls on lxpanel_image_*
87 APIs on theme or panel changes may be eliminated, i.e. code becomes
88 simpler.
5272f2d4
AG
89* Added new lxpanel_image_change_icon() API for simplification reasons so
90 other lxpanel_image_* APIs can be replaced completely.
88f6fc06
AG
91* APIs lxpanel_button_set_icon() lxpanel_button_update_icon() now don't
92 require setting icon size since created button already follows size
93 from panel settings. Also it doesn't require refresh after the panel
94 configuration change.
f7a4447c
AG
95* Disabled scaling up small icons in the taskbar: scaled up icons look
96 bad due to pixelization (patch from Anton Lobashev).
f7a4447c
AG
97* When adding new panel, now correctly edges of monitor where popup was
98 are tried before any other monitors.
5fcaaec5
AG
99* Correctly open 'netstat' plugin own menu on leftclick since rightclick
100 should open panel context menu instead.
0e614d34
AG
101* System critical temperature level in 'thermal' plugin now is properly
102 ignored if manual levels are active.
77067467 103* Fixed click on 'menu' plugin, only image was clickable, not whole area.
981461f6
AG
104* Added API panel_config_int_button_new() for generic plugin config spin
105 button with custom range, not just generic 0...1000.
7281b10b
AG
106* Fixed wrong behavior with PanelIconGrid constrained width after child
107 was removed: size wasn't always renegotiated correctly.
965980f0
AG
108* Fixed range of space reservation in multi-monitor setup (reservation
109 might cover another monitor).
45879f8d
AG
110* Numeric-only string will be saved now double-quoted to distinguish it
111 from number in config.
814756c1 112* Implemented flashing on task with urgency in grouped task list menu.
a47dfeae
AG
113* Disabled flashing on urgency hint if window has focus, most of window
114 managers do the same on window decorations.
4ebd3285
AG
115* Fixed border of 'batt' plugin, it should correctly use panel settings.
116 Also 'Size' setting of it doesn't include border width.
2bbdeeca 117* Allowed default alarmCommand on 'batt' plugin be translated.
2272be09 118* Implemented sorting plugins in Add plugin window in alphabetic order.
68b588ee 119* Fixed font in the weather plugin to use panel settings.
a3cf67bf 120* Added new API lxpanel_button_compose() for future usage by plugins.
a46b378a
AG
121* Added optional volumealsa plugin volume mapping from alsamixer (patch
122 from Peter).
4a1ab23c
AG
123* Added new API lxpanel_button_set_label() to change label of button that
124 was created using some lxpanel_button_*() API.
ddf489b7
AG
125* Added "panel-font-changed" signal to LXPanel to be able follow settings
126 change in font configuration of panel using lxpanel_button_*() API.
2d3ad209
AG
127* Fixed nasty bug with autohidden panel after unhide appeared for short
128 time somewhere at the screen.
2c4d4abe 129* Fixed calendar and configuration windows blinking on their appearance.
66b88e31 130* Fixed panel update when background image changed in configuration.
d1a4f8ad
AG
131* Changed to use persistent background image for panel and Cairo. This
132 way updating background should be faster, and also fixed background
133 of plugins when image is used, both placement and alpha color.
70e7cc8a
AB
134* Urgent window is now always visible on the taskbar irrelevant of the
135 desktop number on which it appears, because urgent window requires
136 user attention (patch from Andy Balaam).
ab1c56ec 137* Moved bit of code that is used out from src/bg.c and discarded src/bg.c
0234f3a2 138 from code used.
c869ce34
AG
139* Dropped setting members of Panel structure: workarea, wa_len, bg.
140* Replaced GtkComboBoxEntry in netstatus plugin window with GtkComboBox.
141* Simplified plugins background setting - they should never use any own
142 background but either use one from panel or from theme (depending on
143 panel configuration). This should improve performance.
74c0ae5e
AG
144* Don't update a whole panel background anymore after some plugin was
145 resized, only update the plugin itself to improve performance.
53eed543 146
66b35a6e
AG
1470.7.2
148-------------------------------------------------------------------------
9a762e63 149* Fixed unhiding panel if it becomes empty and height_when_hidden is 0.
880d25d2
AG
150* Fixed invalid X protocol word size: despite of stating it 32 bit, the X
151 server uses unsigned long which is 64 bit on 64-bit architectures.
152* Adapted to use libmenu-cache >= 1.0.0 - it could show empty folders in
153 the desktop menu.
f90deeee 154* Fixed crash in taskbar after visible task changed name then gone.
50928868 155* Ensured panel background update after some plugin was resized.
c6cfaae8 156* FileManager statement from old config should never be scanned again.
59c0082e 157* Fixed positioning of new created panel, the edge was not saved.
936b5d2f
AG
158* Eliminated hardcoded "xterm" in 'volumealsa' plugin - LibFM has enough
159 means to call terminal when needed.
aaf3b569 160* Fixed crash if 'volumealsa' plugin initialization failed.
9a762e63
AG

1620.7.1
163-------------------------------------------------------------------------
aff777b0
AG
164* Fixed search for the gtkrc file.
165* Fixed search path for configuration - it should be not compilation time
166 path but paths using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS.
167* Fixed incorrect flag for 'launchbar' plugin which marks him expandable.
168* Fixed dragging of task buttons.
169* Corrected using $XDG_MENU_PREFIX to work the same way as libfm does.
170* Fixed using font description, font in gtkrc file was ignored.
171* Improved search for hw sensors in /sys/class/hwmon/ hierarchy.
172* Improved check for critical temperatures in 'termal' plugin, now each
173 individual hardware setting (if available) is also taken into
174 consideration.
175* Fixed parsing alias name in 'weather' plugin settings.
176* Got rid of all individual plugins/*/Makefile - those rules more easily
177 can be contained in the plugins/Makefile.am. Adding a simple plugin
178 basically would mean to add three lines into that file instead of
179 writing whole Makefile.am.
6b697e41 180* Fixed invalid system config path search ("lxpanel" part was missing).
72312227
AG
181* Fixed incorrect requirements in the lxpanel.pc file.
182* Fixed memory leak in the 'volumealsa' plugin.
183* Now 'volumealsa' checks for 'MixerCommand' setting in the configuration
2e836237 184 before guessing it.
27d1361c 185* Fixed color saving in the configuration.
4b9bf724 186* Fixed incomplete resources deallocation in 'volumealsa' plugin.
8c590216 187* Fixed make uninstall (it left plugins installed).
6cc0426a 188* Fixed monitor number set from GUI.
60531c62
AG
189* Fixed hang on netstatus icon in auto-hidden panel.
190* Fixed icon grid compilation with GTK+ < 2.20.
2e836237 191* Fixed compilation without menu-cache.
e9463f99
AG
192* Now man pages are included in the GIT and tarball, not just xml files.
193* Fixed incorrect printf arguments in 'netstatus' plugin.

1950.7.0
196-------------------------------------------------------------------------
197* New plugin 'launchtaskbar' with combined functionality from 'launchbar'
198 and 'taskbar'. For easy support codebase is merged instead of doing
199 duplicates but appearance is still the same in dependency from mode
200 chosen.
201* Integrated with LibFM, all launching and application selection in the
202 launchbar settings is done by LibFM now.
203* New simpler plugins API implementation, using LibFM plugins loader. In
204 new API some callbacks were simplified and some removed, see all the
205 detailed descriptions in the file plugin.h.
206* New plugins are GtkWidgets now, therefore there is no explicit destroy
207 for them or their data, all will be handled implicitly.
208* Changed config access with simple API similar to libconfig one.
209* Using icon caching from LibFM.
210* Applications properties in the menu are managed by LibFM API, no more
211 calls to lxshortcut application.
212* Setting for file manager is not handled on its own but XDG setting is
213 used now, i.e. default choice for "inode/directory" MIME type.
214* Setting for terminal is handled by LibFM, therefore it is the same as
215 in PCManFM now, no own setting anymore.
216* Replaced configure option --enable-cast-checks with --enable-debug.
217* Replaced 'pager' plugin with former 'wnckpager' one. The 'wnckpager'
218 name is still supported for compatibility but it is the same plugin.
219* Added new plugin 'weather', written by Piotr Sipika.
220* Using drag & drop handling from LibFM in launchbar. It is possible now
221 to use any kind of files as launchbuttons, and folders can receive
222 drops as well.
223* Allowed drag applications from system menu plugin so they now can be
224 dropped somewhere. The obvious example is drop on the desktop.
225* Using human readable sensor names if available (like 'Core 0', etc.).
226* Panel is allowed to hide completely (setting width when hidden to 0).
227* The IconGrid converted into GtkContainer derived class PanelIconGrid.
228* Allowed to use <USER_CONFIG_DIR>/lxpanel/<profile>/gtkrc for the panel
229 custom style setup.
230* The panel itself in not a struct now but a GtkWindow derived class so
231 no special API to destroy it is required.
232* Improved the layout of icons in panel, they will not align to the edge
233 of screen but appropriately to panel height. Some of them did that
234 already but some were aligned to the screen edge without any gap.
235* The button to configure plugin in panel plugins configuration tab is
236 renamed from 'Edit' to 'Properties'.
237* All logging is unified. The option --log is deprecated and isn't used
238 anymore. User can change logs appearance using G_MESSAGES_DEBUG and
239 G_MESSAGES_PREFIXED environment variables (see GLib docs).
240* Old APIs are in place still for backward compatibility with third party
241 plugins but will be dropped later, supposedly on next feature release
242 point. Old APIs are not present in public headers, compatibility is
243 on binary level only.
244* A whole lot of bugfixes.
