gcalctool 4.2.83

Application
===========

gcalctool


Description
===========

gcalctool is the desktop calculator that has been proposed for GNOME 2.4.
It has Basic, Financial and Scientific modes. Internally it uses multiple
precision arithmetic to produce results to a high degree of accuracy.

We recently asked for testers on the desktop-devel mailing list, and have
fixed the bugs that users have found, and made all the changes that were
suggested.

We now believe that gcalctool is close to being equivalent to the version we
would like to include with GNOME 2.4, so we are looking for more testers to
give it a good workover.


*IMPORTANT NOTE TO TRANSLATORS*

The online help is now completed and has had editorial feedback.
It is now ready to be translated to other locales. Thanks!

gnometab 0.7.4

Application
===========

Gnometab 0.7.4

Description
===========

A WYSIWYG guitar tablature editor for GNOME

Enhancements
============

    *  A default pointer tool has been added. Now it is only possible to
select, move, or delete tab objects with the pointer tool, making it easier
to modify the layout without inadvertently creating new tab objects.

    * Menu accelerators have been added for all tools.

    * Gnometab now maintains a "Recent Files" list in the
"File" menu.

    * The chord builder has been slightly over-hauled, and chord builder
objects now have a right-click popup menu, consistent with regular tab
objects.

    * Gnometab-0.7.4 has been ported to libgnomeprint-2.2, and now uses
fontconfig for both screen and print fonts. Libgnomeprint-2.2 is included
in GNOME-2.2. Users of GNOME-2.0 should stick with version 0.7.3. This is
the only difference between versions 0.7.3 and 0.7.4. Thanks to Joachim
Breitner for the port.

    * Other enhancements and bugfixes; see the ChangeLog for details.
