Epiphany Extensions 1.4.1

Hi,

What is it ?

Epiphany Extensions is a collection of extensions for Epiphany, the GNOME web browser.

Epiphany Extensions 1.4.1 is the latest stable release for use with the stable 1.4.x series of Epiphany with GNOME 2.8.

What's new ?

Starting with version 1.4.1, Epiphany can be compiled against firefox' libraries as well as mozilla's libraries. To do so, pass the --with-mozilla=[mozilla|firefox] argument to configure. Note that you need to use the same setting as the one you compiled Epiphany with. To compile with firefox, you also need to apply the patch from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=256988 to firefox' build process, or fix the firefox-*.pc files manually.

PyGTK 2.3.97

I am pleased to announce version 2.3.97 of the Python bindings for GTK.

This is the final release candidate before 2.4.0 and if nothing serious turns up I'll rename this tarball and upload it as 2.4.0. Please test this thoroughly and report any serious bugs so they can be resolved before the final release.
Our special guest star for this release is Owen Taylor who did his first contribution to PyGTK since the last release.

The new release is available from ftp ftp.gnome.org as and its mirrors as soon as its synced correctly:

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pygtk/2.3/pygtk-2.3.97.tar.gz

It might take a while, so you can use current CVS for now if you can't wait.

What's new since 2.3.96?

  • Threading fixes (Gustavo, Johan, John E)
  • Other Bug fixes (Gustavo, James, Johan, John, Ehresman, John Finaly, Owen Taylor and Xaiver Ordoquy)
  • x86_64 build fixes (Jonathan Blandford)
  • Updated examples (John Finlay)

Blurb:

GTK is a toolkit for developing graphical applications that run on POSIX systems such as Linux, Windows and MacOS X (provided that the X server for MacOS X has been installed). It provides a comprehensive set of GUI widgets, can display Unicode bidi text. It links into the Gnome Accessibility Framework through the ATK library.

PyGTK provides a convenient wrapper for the GTK library for use in Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as managing memory and type casting. When combined with PyORBit and gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.

Like the GTK library itself PyGTK is licensed under the GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both free software and proprietary applications. It is already in use in many applications ranging from small single purpose scripts up to large full features applications.

PyGTK now requires GTK >= 2.4 and Python >= 2.3 to build.

It includes a number of changes since the last pygtk release; We'd really appreciate testing and bug reports on this release; please take the time out to download and test it to ensure it works for your application[s]. Bug reports, as always, should go to Bugzilla; check out http://pygtk.org/developer.html and http://pygtk.org/feedback.html for links to posting and querying bug reports for PyGTK.

Revelation 0.3.4

Revelation is a password manager for the GNOME 2 desktop, released under the GNU GPL license. It stores all your accounts and passwords in a single, secure place, and gives you access to it through a user-friendly graphical interface.

This release fixes a couple of bugs; a crash when editing an entry on Python 2.2 systems, and the name for domain fields was accidentally replaced with the field tooltip. There has also been a couple of minor UI improvements.

Bugfixes:

  • the Domain field had the tooltip set as its name
  • the searchbar follows the detachable toolbar setting in gnome
  • ask to continue running when an unknown error occurs
  • activate searchbar button when hitting return in the entry
  • workaround for crasher bug when editing an entry on some systems
