CommitLineData
ac5ee186
AG
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5* Fixed outdated lxpanel man page.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.
a5a4d42e
AG

700.8.2
71-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4d922895 72* Fixed crash in taskbar plugin after number of desktops was updated.
7129a2f9 73* Fixed incorrect panel geometry initialization.
bd653355 74* Fixed crash with invalid size of icon in _NET_WM_ICON property.
7f7a69a9 75* Fixed memory leak on 'indicator' plugin destruction.
a5a4d42e
AG
76* Replaced old commands:
77 - Use notify send instead of xmessage
78 - Use nm-connection-editor instead of network-admin
4d922895 79
5f289453
AG
800.8.1
81-------------------------------------------------------------------------
17d22719 82* Improved OSS headers detection a bit.
edd6656c
AG
83* Fixed expand setting on plugins with default_expand when more than one
84 is available on the same panel.
d84a9662 85* Fixed icon for task button that retrieved using WM_HINTS.
66f3dd36 86* Fixed wrong PanelIconGrid arrangement in vertical panel orientation.
26ddbcdf
AG
87* Fixed missing handlers disconnect when destroying Task structure.
88* Removed writing debug messages to file when 'indicator' plugin is in
89 use - it will write all the debug there and that changes the behavior
90 which was not intended really.
714670bf 91* Corrected background for 'indicator' plugin.
a4fdf966 92* Fixed update 'indicator' plugin on configuration changes.
d8a48b39
AG
93* Fixed battery status: if discharge rate is 0 then it's charged.
94* Fixed incorrect cycle in netproc_devicelist_clear() leading to crash on
95 resume (after suspend).
96* Fixed scanning for temperature sensors which failed with some kernels.
35e581ff
AG
97* Changed reconfiguring panel behavior: callbacks to plugins will be sent
98 on idle, not immediately to avoid "stuck" spin button (and eventually
99 even crash was possible).
100* Fixed initial icon on 'volumealsa' to show real state instead of muted.
fa2dfe65
AG
101* Fixed 'dclock' updating that it will show time on start, not just on
102 next second change. It would create impression it's slow otherwise.
486e7e56 103* Fixed wrong task button activation on not processed drag of button.
17d22719
AG
104
1050.8.0
106-------------------------------------------------------------------------
53eed543 107* Added workaround for crash in gtk-run with old libmenu-cache.
2a971699
AG
108* Core functions are separated into a private library to allow reliable
109 linking of modules using -Wl,-z,defs.
98c7671a 110* Added macro LXPANEL_CHECK_VERSION() for third party pluguns API check.
6f4cf572 111* Added CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL support for lxpanel_generic_config_dlg().
9633d713
AG
112* Implemented property "aspect-width" for PanelIconGrid to allow using
113 non-square tray sockets.
ca4eee75
AG
114* Added support for monitors "All" to span panel over all monitors (i.e.
115 to allow pre-0.6.0 behavior).
51abba48 116* Implemented monitors hotplug support.
8fa1b626 117* Fixed popups positioning in multi-monitor environment.
b4bb3f6f
AG
118* Fixed updating panel size if appropriate monitor changed its size or
119 position.
120* Implemented disabling for "Reserve space" button if another monitor
121 lies beyond the edge so reservation will cover it. Also reservation
122 will not be applied in such cases even if set in config manually.
2d744915
AG
123* Some edge and monitors selections in panel configuration dialog may be
124 insensitive now if appropriate edge and monitor combination is not
125 available, to avoid panels stacking one over another.
12ddb4f8 126* Fixed bug with hidden panel disappearing after resolution change.
8a4622e5
AG
127* Add lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to replace another (obsolete) API
128 _gtk_image_new_from_file_scaled().
129* Added API panel_config_hotkey_button_new() to use as CONF_TYPE_EXTERNAL
130 widget to allow configure global hotkeys for plugins functions.
f7a4447c
AG
131* Added API lxpanel_apply_hotkey() as a convenient libkeybinder interface
132 to use in modules that also use panel_config_hotkey_button_new(). Now
133 LXPanel requires libkeybinder too.
75d47917
AG
134* Added API panel_config_click_button_new() to configure mouse gestures
135 and panel_config_click_parse() to parse its output.
bf7645fc
AG
136* Added "icon-size-changed" signal to LXPanel which is emitted when icons
137 size in configuration dialog was changed.
8ec08843 138* Improved lxpanel_image_new_for_icon() API to follow panel icons size
6febec6d
AG
139 changes, not only theme changes. This way calls on lxpanel_image_*
140 APIs on theme or panel changes may be eliminated, i.e. code becomes
141 simpler.
5272f2d4
AG
142* Added new lxpanel_image_change_icon() API for simplification reasons so
143 other lxpanel_image_* APIs can be replaced completely.
88f6fc06
AG
144* APIs lxpanel_button_set_icon() lxpanel_button_update_icon() now don't
145 require setting icon size since created button already follows size
146 from panel settings. Also it doesn't require refresh after the panel
147 configuration change.
f7a4447c
AG
148* Disabled scaling up small icons in the taskbar: scaled up icons look
149 bad due to pixelization (patch from Anton Lobashev).
f7a4447c
AG
150* When adding new panel, now correctly edges of monitor where popup was
151 are tried before any other monitors.
5fcaaec5
AG
152* Correctly open 'netstat' plugin own menu on leftclick since rightclick
153 should open panel context menu instead.
0e614d34
AG
154* System critical temperature level in 'thermal' plugin now is properly
155 ignored if manual levels are active.
77067467 156* Fixed click on 'menu' plugin, only image was clickable, not whole area.
981461f6
AG
157* Added API panel_config_int_button_new() for generic plugin config spin
158 button with custom range, not just generic 0...1000.
7281b10b
AG
159* Fixed wrong behavior with PanelIconGrid constrained width after child
160 was removed: size wasn't always renegotiated correctly.
965980f0
AG
161* Fixed range of space reservation in multi-monitor setup (reservation
162 might cover another monitor).
45879f8d
AG
163* Numeric-only string will be saved now double-quoted to distinguish it
164 from number in config.
814756c1 165* Implemented flashing on task with urgency in grouped task list menu.
a47dfeae
AG
166* Disabled flashing on urgency hint if window has focus, most of window
167 managers do the same on window decorations.
4ebd3285
AG
168* Fixed border of 'batt' plugin, it should correctly use panel settings.
169 Also 'Size' setting of it doesn't include border width.
2bbdeeca 170* Allowed default alarmCommand on 'batt' plugin be translated.
2272be09 171* Implemented sorting plugins in Add plugin window in alphabetic order.
68b588ee 172* Fixed font in the weather plugin to use panel settings.
a3cf67bf 173* Added new API lxpanel_button_compose() for future usage by plugins.
a46b378a
AG
174* Added optional volumealsa plugin volume mapping from alsamixer (patch
175 from Peter).
4a1ab23c
AG
176* Added new API lxpanel_button_set_label() to change label of button that
177 was created using some lxpanel_button_*() API.
ddf489b7
AG
178* Added "panel-font-changed" signal to LXPanel to be able follow settings
179 change in font configuration of panel using lxpanel_button_*() API.
2d3ad209
AG
180* Fixed nasty bug with autohidden panel after unhide appeared for short
181 time somewhere at the screen.
2c4d4abe 182* Fixed calendar and configuration windows blinking on their appearance.
66b88e31 183* Fixed panel update when background image changed in configuration.
d1a4f8ad
AG
184* Changed to use persistent background image for panel and Cairo. This
185 way updating background should be faster, and also fixed background
186 of plugins when image is used, both placement and alpha color.
70e7cc8a
AB
187* Urgent window is now always visible on the taskbar irrelevant of the
188 desktop number on which it appears, because urgent window requires
189 user attention (patch from Andy Balaam).
ab1c56ec 190* Moved bit of code that is used out from src/bg.c and discarded src/bg.c
0234f3a2 191 from code used.
c869ce34
AG
192* Dropped setting members of Panel structure: workarea, wa_len, bg.
193* Replaced GtkComboBoxEntry in netstatus plugin window with GtkComboBox.
194* Simplified plugins background setting - they should never use any own
195 background but either use one from panel or from theme (depending on
196 panel configuration). This should improve performance.
74c0ae5e
AG
197* Don't update a whole panel background anymore after some plugin was
198 resized, only update the plugin itself to improve performance.
53eed543 199
66b35a6e
AG
2000.7.2
201-------------------------------------------------------------------------
9a762e63 202* Fixed unhiding panel if it becomes empty and height_when_hidden is 0.
880d25d2
AG
203* Fixed invalid X protocol word size: despite of stating it 32 bit, the X
204 server uses unsigned long which is 64 bit on 64-bit architectures.
205* Adapted to use libmenu-cache >= 1.0.0 - it could show empty folders in
206 the desktop menu.
f90deeee 207* Fixed crash in taskbar after visible task changed name then gone.
50928868 208* Ensured panel background update after some plugin was resized.
c6cfaae8 209* FileManager statement from old config should never be scanned again.
59c0082e 210* Fixed positioning of new created panel, the edge was not saved.
936b5d2f
AG
211* Eliminated hardcoded "xterm" in 'volumealsa' plugin - LibFM has enough
212 means to call terminal when needed.
aaf3b569 213* Fixed crash if 'volumealsa' plugin initialization failed.
9a762e63
AG
214
2150.7.1
216-------------------------------------------------------------------------
aff777b0
AG
217* Fixed search for the gtkrc file.
218* Fixed search path for configuration - it should be not compilation time
219 path but paths using $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS.
220* Fixed incorrect flag for 'launchbar' plugin which marks him expandable.
221* Fixed dragging of task buttons.
222* Corrected using $XDG_MENU_PREFIX to work the same way as libfm does.
223* Fixed using font description, font in gtkrc file was ignored.
224* Improved search for hw sensors in /sys/class/hwmon/ hierarchy.
225* Improved check for critical temperatures in 'termal' plugin, now each
226 individual hardware setting (if available) is also taken into
227 consideration.
228* Fixed parsing alias name in 'weather' plugin settings.
229* Got rid of all individual plugins/*/Makefile - those rules more easily
230 can be contained in the plugins/Makefile.am. Adding a simple plugin
231 basically would mean to add three lines into that file instead of
232 writing whole Makefile.am.
6b697e41 233* Fixed invalid system config path search ("lxpanel" part was missing).
72312227
AG
234* Fixed incorrect requirements in the lxpanel.pc file.
235* Fixed memory leak in the 'volumealsa' plugin.
236* Now 'volumealsa' checks for 'MixerCommand' setting in the configuration
2e836237 237 before guessing it.
27d1361c 238* Fixed color saving in the configuration.
4b9bf724 239* Fixed incomplete resources deallocation in 'volumealsa' plugin.
8c590216 240* Fixed make uninstall (it left plugins installed).
6cc0426a 241* Fixed monitor number set from GUI.
60531c62
AG
242* Fixed hang on netstatus icon in auto-hidden panel.
243* Fixed icon grid compilation with GTK+ < 2.20.
2e836237 244* Fixed compilation without menu-cache.
e9463f99
AG
245* Now man pages are included in the GIT and tarball, not just xml files.
246* Fixed incorrect printf arguments in 'netstatus' plugin.
aff777b0 247
7a5d57c2
AG
2480.7.0
249-------------------------------------------------------------------------
250* New plugin 'launchtaskbar' with combined functionality from 'launchbar'
251 and 'taskbar'. For easy support codebase is merged instead of doing
252 duplicates but appearance is still the same in dependency from mode
253 chosen.
254* Integrated with LibFM, all launching and application selection in the
255 launchbar settings is done by LibFM now.
256* New simpler plugins API implementation, using LibFM plugins loader. In
257 new API some callbacks were simplified and some removed, see all the
258 detailed descriptions in the file plugin.h.
259* New plugins are GtkWidgets now, therefore there is no explicit destroy
260 for them or their data, all will be handled implicitly.
261* Changed config access with simple API similar to libconfig one.
262* Using icon caching from LibFM.
263* Applications properties in the menu are managed by LibFM API, no more
264 calls to lxshortcut application.
265* Setting for file manager is not handled on its own but XDG setting is
266 used now, i.e. default choice for "inode/directory" MIME type.
267* Setting for terminal is handled by LibFM, therefore it is the same as
268 in PCManFM now, no own setting anymore.
269* Replaced configure option --enable-cast-checks with --enable-debug.
270* Replaced 'pager' plugin with former 'wnckpager' one. The 'wnckpager'
271 name is still supported for compatibility but it is the same plugin.
272* Added new plugin 'weather', written by Piotr Sipika.
273* Using drag & drop handling from LibFM in launchbar. It is possible now
274 to use any kind of files as launchbuttons, and folders can receive
275 drops as well.
276* Allowed drag applications from system menu plugin so they now can be
277 dropped somewhere. The obvious example is drop on the desktop.
278* Using human readable sensor names if available (like 'Core 0', etc.).
279* Panel is allowed to hide completely (setting width when hidden to 0).
280* The IconGrid converted into GtkContainer derived class PanelIconGrid.
281* Allowed to use <USER_CONFIG_DIR>/lxpanel/<profile>/gtkrc for the panel
282 custom style setup.
283* The panel itself in not a struct now but a GtkWindow derived class so
284 no special API to destroy it is required.
285* Improved the layout of icons in panel, they will not align to the edge
286 of screen but appropriately to panel height. Some of them did that
287 already but some were aligned to the screen edge without any gap.
288* The button to configure plugin in panel plugins configuration tab is
289 renamed from 'Edit' to 'Properties'.
290* All logging is unified. The option --log is deprecated and isn't used
291 anymore. User can change logs appearance using G_MESSAGES_DEBUG and
292 G_MESSAGES_PREFIXED environment variables (see GLib docs).
293* Old APIs are in place still for backward compatibility with third party
294 plugins but will be dropped later, supposedly on next feature release
295 point. Old APIs are not present in public headers, compatibility is
296 on binary level only.
297* A whole lot of bugfixes.
