GHex 2.8.1

"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth!"

A quick follow-up to the still warm 2.8.0: I have fixed a build bug that might have, under very special circumstances, caused an incompatible version of dependencies (like glib or gtk) to be pulled in the build, and a bug in the converter that caused only one byte of hex to be displayed.

In the meantime, Adam, Takeshi, David, Miloslav and Tino have updated en_CA, ja, en_GB, cs and nl translations.

libxklavier 1.10

Hi all

As a start of new libxklavier development series. I announce the version 1.10 of the X keyboard utility library. This version contains improved architecture of the configuration process - not the entire configuration compilation process is performed on the client side, so X server gets absolutely prepared X configuration - this allows to eliminate problems where X server and X client have different configuration bases.

The API and ABI were changed - so users of GNOME 2.8.x are not supposed to use this version - they are recommended to stick to the stable series 1.0x of the library. In contrast, anyone using gnome-control-center and gnome-applets from CVS HEAD (and versions 2.9.x, when they are released) - have to upgrade.

Some minor bugfixes/tweaks were made as well.



Goobox 0.1.0


this is the announcement of the first public version of Goobox.

Goobox is a CD player and ripper for the Gnome Desktop environment, it uses gstreamer to play and rip CDs and cddb-slave2 (distributed with gnome-media) to get and edit CD metadata such as track titles and album name.
