Conglomerate 0.7.11

Application

Conglomerate 0.7.11

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: no (Kjaartan Marass), fr (Alban Browaeys), sq (Laurent Dhima)
  • Updated translations: cs (Miloslav Trmac), es (Francisco Javier F. Serrador), nl (Daniel van Eeden), no (Kjartan Maraas), pt (Duarte Loreto), sr/sr@Latn (Danilo egan),
  • The File->New assistant now has a "Random Document" plugin, which is both great fun, and good for testing. If you select this, you reach a page where you can select a document type from those available (based on the dispspec files loaded). You can also specify a "depth" which is used to give an idea of how deep the document's tree should be. If a DTD is available, Conglomerate will try to ensure that the document is valid against that DTD. It also generates random text, to really push the unicode support (it generates random strings using most of the full range of Unicode). (me)
  • If a DTD if found, the DTD tab of the Properties dialog for a node now has a "content model" view, showing the valid child elements that are allowed by the DTD in a tree form. (me)
  • First attempt at a "Find" dialog; improving this and the "Replace" dialog would make great jobs for programmers wanting to get involved. (me)
  • Big rewrite of the plugin code with the aim of eventually moving over to libgnomeoffice's framework. Plugins contain services of various kinds; everything is now a GObject subclass. (me)
  • The "--enable-printing" configuration option no longer requires libfo; this is now enabled separately with a new "--enable-libfo" option (me)
  • Change template code to use a <cong:template> element (Jeff Martin)
  • Toolbar now has a "New Document" button (Daniel van Eeden)
  • Internal improvements to GUI button sensitivity logic (Paul Smith)

Fixes

  • Fix bug #130820 (me)
  • Fixed crash when loading file without a dispspec with no extension in its filename (me)
  • Fixed a bug in the template code (Daniel Larson)
  • Fixes for C99ism build problems on gcc-2.95.4 (Geert Stappers)
  • Fixed whitespace issues in the README files (David Hoover)
  • Various build fixes, including disabling gtk-doc for now (Geert)
  • Added a couple of DocBook tags to the display specification (Daniel Larsson)
  • Added a template file for display specifications to the examples subfolder (Boris Goldowsky)
