Release Digest: GNOME, July 16, 2002

Jul 17, 2002, 05:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Pan 0.11.4

Pan 0.11.4 "Never discuss religion, politics, or toast" has been
released.
It can be found at http://pan.rebelbase.com/

What is Pan?

    Pan is a newsreader, loosely based on Agent and Gravity, which
    attempts to be pleasant to use for new and advanced users alike.
    It has all the typical features found in newsreaders and also
    supports offline newsreading, article filtering, multiple
    connections, and a number of extra features for power users and
    alt.binaries fans.

    It's also the only Unix newsreader to get a perfect score on the
    Good Net-Keeping Seal of Approval evaluations.  See
    http://pan.rebelbase.com/features.html for the rest of the
    sales pitch.

About 0.11.4

    This is a final courtesy bugfix release on the Gnome 1.4 branch,
    consisting of about a dozen fixes already in the Gnome 2 branch,
    for people who don't have root on their systems and can't upgrade
    to gtk2.  Everyone else is encouraged to use Pan 0.12.1 or higher
    instead.

Changes Since 0.11.3

    BUGFIXES

    * Fixed long-standing bug that could cause Pan to crash if the
      grouplist file was corrupt.  Thanks to Adam M for reporting
      this bug. (#72435)

    * Fixed long-standing bug that would cause Pan to download only a
      subset of bodies, when getting bodies for all headers.
      Thanks to Si for reporting this. (#72555)

    * Fixed 0.11.2 bug that didn't show HTML messages.  We still don't
      parse the HTML -- HTML has no place in Usenet -- but we at least
      show the message now.  Thanks to Himanshu J. Gohel for reporting
      this bug.  (#78723)

    * Fixed long-standing bug that didn't create user-specified
      directories when saving article bodies via "Save As...".
      Thanks to Colin Leroy for reporting this bug and submitting
      a patch. (#80292)

    * Fixed long-standing bug that didn't properly thread articles
      that had the subject header idiom "track (n/M] part (x/y)".
      Thanks to gaw zay for reporting this bug. (#80901)

    * Fixed lond-standing bug that caused Pan to segfault on shutdown
      when it could not write the threads.txt file in the data directory.
      Thanks to Corey Rogers for reporting this bug. (#81080)

    * Fixed 0.11.2 bug that let the article cache grow too large.
      Thanks to Bernard Debreil for reporting this bug. (#81464)

    * Fixed long-standing bug that could cause Pan to crash when adding
      new tasks while the task manager dialog was open.  Thanks to
      Thomas Gamble for reporting this bug. (#82262)

    * Fixed minor bug that could give the wrong error message for
      articles that users tried to post without a Subject header.
(#82828)

    * Fixed long-standing bug that could cause Pan to crash when deleting
      articles which had crossposts in a group that was being unloaded by
      Pan.  Thanks to bickingd for reporting this bug. (#82865)

    * Fixed Quoted-Printable bug.  Thanks to Martin Tomasek for
      reporting this bug. (#84987)

    * Fixed long-standing bug that made it impossible to attach a
      rule to a renamed newsgroup. Thanks to Carl Hudkins for
      reporting this.  (#85725)

gnomemm 1.3.8

*** gnomemm

The libgnome*mm libraries wrap the GNOME2 libraries for C++, for use
with gtkmm2. They are collectively known as gnomemm. This release should work 
with the 'GNOME 2.0 Desktop Release Candidate' releases. You will need the 
latest gtkmm2 release.

libgnomeuimm wraps libgnomeui for C++.
libgnomecanvasmm wraps libgnomecanvas for C++.
libglademm wraps libglade for C++
libgnomemm wraps libgnome for C++.
gconfmm wraps GConf for C++.

We have also provided gnomemm as one umbrella package, gnomemm-all, for your 
convenience. 

*** Changes:

No major changes - mostly just regenerated for the latest gtkmm.
But we have fixed the gnomemm-all build files, so we expect this to work now.

libgnomemm 1.3.6:
libglademm 1.3.3:
libgnomecanvasmm 1.3.8:

* Rebuilt for gtkmm 1.3.18

gconfmm 1.3.6:

* Build and install fixes. (Abel Cheung)

libgnomeuimm 1.3.8:

* Added libglademm dependency.

*** Download 

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1161

You will need the latest unstable gtkmm2, available from the same place.

*** Installation:

The gnomemm libraries should be built and installed in this order:
libgnomemm, gconfmm, libgnomecanvasmm, libglademm, libgnomeuimm.
Or you could use the gnomemm-all umbrella package.
