Hello shared library lovers,

Gnome libs 1.0.2 is now available for download.

The site is the same:


What is new on this release:

  • Improved gnome-bug script
  • libgnome changes:
    • SIGPIPE reset to default value in gnome_exec, this does the proper thing for various GNOME applications that start other programs.

      People have been reporting problems with gzip, this fixes it.

    • Raja improved the gnome_dirrelavtive_file routine.
  • libgnomeui changes:
    • Documentation updates for the Canvas. It should be fully API documented now (with the exceptions of the object arguments, which needs to be done in a different framework) (Federico).
    • IconList passes events for double and tripple clicks to applications (George).
    • We now use mime-type routines for finding out image types instead of the older method (George).
    • IconList should behave properly for people with wheel-mouses.
    • ColorPicker fixed for some corner conditions (Jaka).
  • Zvt changes:
    • Shift-Insert will trigger a paste (for compatibility with Xterm).
    • SIGPIPE will be set to SGI_DFL on the child after fork.
