Phone Manager allows you to send and receive text (SMS) messages
from the desktop, connecting to your mobile phone via Bluetooth,
serial or IrDA.
It's finally here! A version of Phone Manager that works with
the latest gnome-bluetooth code. This release is feature-wise
exactly the same as the 0.2 release, but more or less completely
rewritten underneath. The user interface is a bit rough, in
More or less 100% rewritten to use the new gnome-bluetooth
framework, no feature difference from previous release.
Restricted use of C++ to the GSM mobile phone communication
code. Nothing personal against C++, I was just fed up of Debian not
tracking the libgnome*mm libraries well.
Headline news: prettier UI for the OBEX file sharing, and a
couple of changes needed to support the upcoming Phone Manager
gnome-bluetooth is a suite of tools for managing Bluetooth
devices and sending/receiving data under the GNOME desktop.
libbtctl is a GObject-based library for the Bluetooth and OBEX
operations on Linux. It comes with Python and Mono language
These releases are development releases, and should be
considered unstable. They incorporate a large amount rewriting of
underlying libraries for improved reliability and API usability.
Little extra functionality is offered over the previous
gnome-obex-server: Ask user what to do with received files,
displaying nice little box with file details. Also displays proper
name of a connecting device.
libgnomebt: Now includes pkg-config file so libgnomebt can be
used by other packages.
Glom is a GUI that allows you to design database table
definitions and the relationships between them. It also allows you
to edit and search the data in those tables. The design is loosely
based upon FileMaker Pro, with the added advantage of separation
between user interface and data.
Glom uses the PostgresSQL database backend but it can not edit
databases that it did not create, because it uses only a simple
subset of Postgres functionality.
Gamin is a file and directory monitoring system defined to be a
subset of the FAM (File Alteration Monitor) system.
The main goals of the project are:
1/ minimize the security model of FAM
2/ simplify the code base
3/ provide an API and ABI compatible replacement for FAM
The project home page is (temporary) at: http://www.gnome.org/~veillard/gamin/
you should be able to find there the release source, and
prepackaged RPMs for the i386 platform working on Fedora Core 2 and
From an historical point of view, gamin builds from the marmot
project authored by James Willcox and Corey Bowers and then
heavilly modified to turn it into a minimalist FAM replacement
(French litterate will appreciate the filiation from fam to marmot
This library is available under the terms of the GNU LIBRARY
GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE, and a copy of it should be found in the
source under the COPYING file.
This work is sponsored by Red Hat, consider this a first
snapshot of a work-in-progress, there is still a lot to do, but
this should be sufficient to get gnome-vfs and nautilus working
again on SELinux enabled systems. One goal too is to be able to
test and integrate quickly mechanisms at the kernel level providing
better interfaces to file and directory alteration mechanism.
Liferea (Linux Feed Reader) is a fast, easy to use, and easy to
install GNOME news aggregator for online news feeds. It supports a
number of different feed formats including RSS/RDF, CDF, Atom, OCS,
Feed Link Autodiscovery, this means you can subscribe to any
website's and the feed link is determined automatically. (ahmed
Mozilla browser module supports zooming now. (Lars
Scroll down or next unread feature for Mozilla, and is now
triggered by space instead of shift-space.
Improved HTML stylesheet. This will cause current items to be
duplicated the first time that 0.5.0 is run.
Relative links in HTML plugins are now supported.
HTML plugin interface has changed.
Added news reader icon drawn by Jakob Steiner as recommended
application launcher icon.
Added a simple manual page.
The feed downloading now is concurrent to avoid long waiting
times on timeouts or slow feed sources. The default concurrency is
3. The value can be configured by setting the gconf key
Scheduled feed updates are calculated based on the time of the
last poll of the feed, which is saved across restarts of Liferea.
This means that feeds needing updates (based on the update
interval) are automatically updated when Liferea starts.
If the close box is used in the Liferea main window when the
systray icon is active, Liferea will close its main window, but not
quit. Click the systray icon to show the main window
gtkmm provides a C++ interface to GTK+. gtkmm 2.4 wraps
additional API in GTK+ 2.4. gtkmm 2.4 installs in parallel with
gtkmm 2.2, so you can have both installed at the same time. glibmm
is now a separate module, for use in non-GUI software.
