Release Digest: GNOME, January 26, 2004

Jan 27, 2004, 05:30 (0 Talkback[s])

libxklavier 0.97

Application

libxklavier 0.97

Description

Foundation library for XKB-related projects

Enhancements & Fixes

The library is now buildable/compilable without XKB headers (though it does not work in such a miserable environment). This change required some modifications in the API/ABI, so the shared library has new interface id. The library is proven to be buildable on Solaris. Some internal code reorganization is performed.

GNOME War Pad 0.2.9

Application

GNOME War Pad 0.2.9

Description

A 'VGA Planets' client for the GNOME platform

Enhancements

  • Internal data redesign: planets, starbases and ships now are GObjects, part of a object hierarchy that will represent the entire data scheme on GWP. This will make very easy the binding to another languajes to treat this data.
  • This version doesn't add any new feature, the amount of work needed to change the internal data was enough to release a new version, the new features will arrive shortly!

gnome-games 2.5.5

It's that time again: gnome-games "The Ends of Invention" 2.5.5

You can find it at the usual place:

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-games/2.5/

This is the feature-freeze release. This should be what 2.6 looks like minus the bugs.

The major features of this release are:

Aisleriot: Statistics finally work. You saw the UI with the last release, now you can find out just how many games you've played and how often you loose.

Glines: Better versions of the SVG Balls theme from Richard Hoelscher. Also clicking quickly does the expected thing now.

Gnome-stones: The major crash-on-startup bug that I completely mis-diagnosed in 2.3.x has now been fixed. Really, truly, definitely. I'm sure of it this time.

Gnomine: SVG graphics (also by Richard Hoelscher) and better rendering of those same graphics.

Mahjongg: New layouts from Rexford Newbould and Krzysztof Foltman. Be warned that your choice of layout will be reset to Easy, but since you will be wanting to try out the new levels it shouldn't matter :).

Plus the usual long list of translations from the dedicated people in the translation team.
