Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Conglomerate 0.7.5 - "Now You See It, Now You Don't"
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.
Conglomerate is becoming more usable, and is regularly used by
the author for small documents, including these release notes.
However it is still UNSTABLE, and not yet ready for heavy-duty
In keeping with Gnome tradition, this release of Conglomerate is
codenamed with a phrase that makes no sense to most people reading
the release announcement. Enjoy :-)
- Undo/Redo now works, with an unlimited history. Large amounts
of the program was rewritten to allow this. (me)
- Allow clicking beyond the end of the fragment of text, to make
it easy to select past the end of a line (bug #121066) (me)
- Improvements to the "Required Child" dialog to use Glade and be
more HIG-compliant (David Hoover)
- Parser error dialog now supports syntax highlighting if
GtkSourceView is available (Geert-Jan Van den Bogaerde)
- Display Specifications can now specify if whitespace is
significant within an XML element. It is respected by the Cleanup
XML Source tool, and there is some support in the main editor view.
DocBook's <programlisting> tag is flagged to work this way.
- We now generate API documentation, using gtk-doc (Robert Varga,
Geert Stappers, me)
- New translation: cs - Czech (Miloslav Trmac)
- Updated translations: de (Christian Neumair), sv (Christian
Rose), pl (Artur Flinta), sr, sr@Latn (Danilo Segan), nl (Elros
- Allow going one character beyond the end of text buffers, to
allow for sane cursor movement (bug #121066 again) (me)
- Stopped unnecessary addition of whitespace nodes when adding
new structural elements (me)
