Conglomerate 0.7.12

Application

Conglomerate 0.7.12

Description

Conglomerate is an XML editor for GNOME, aiming to be as user-friendly as possible, to help non-technical people to use DocBook and similar formats.

Enhancements

  • New translations: Croatian (hr) (Robert Sedak), Japanese (ja) (Mitsuru Oka)
  • Updated translations: Albanian (sq) (Laurent Dhima), Serbian (sr.po, sr@Latn.po) (Danilo egan), nl (Daniel van Eeden), Czech (cs) (Miloslav Trmac), Greek (el) ( Kostas Papadimas), German (de) (Christian Neumair), Croatian (hr) (Robert Sedak)
  • Added preliminary support for the TEI Lite format (Roberto Rosselli Del Turco)
  • Big fix of XML namespace handling. Dispspecs now refer to elements using a namespace URI (if any) and the local name within that namespace. Element-matching code now uses namespaces rather than prefixes in various places, including the XSL-FO and RELAX NG plugins, which should lead to more robust handling of arbitrary documents. (me)
  • When determining which dispspec to use, calculate coverage of the document elements and pick the best (above a certain threshold percentage) (me)
  • New dialog for selecting which child element to insert when a DTD requires such a choice. The new dialog lists both the XML names and the translated names with icons where available (me)
  • Added a workaround for bug #124507 which pops up a dialog explaining what the problem is and tells you which elements are causing it. The problem elements will not appear in the editor widget. The dialog repeats every time the document is editor, but this is better behaviour than a silent crash :-) (me)

Fixes

  • Reorganised source tree so that the xds files live in their own "dispspecs" subdirectory, rather than sharing the "examples" folder with the sample instance documents (Geert Stappers)
  • Tidying up of plugin management code to use Service IDs to identify instances and GType to identify classes (me)
  • Big warning fix, should now compile cleanly on "-Wall -Werror" (me)
  • Big cleanup of the insides of the popup context menu, replacing lots of obcure hackery with a more maintainable system. (me)
