http://blogs.gnome.org – This week… 2060 commits, in 182 projects, by 247 happy hackers (and 2060 were translation commits). In the “content-sniffing” branch, Gustavo Noronha Silva started to implement content sniffing in libsoup, including the HTML5 algorithm that sniffs content served as “text/plain” by web servers. Hubert Figuiere fixed a bug when printing date/tome values with 0 micro-second, making gnote timestamps compatible with tomboy . (GNOME bug 581844) File Roller gained support for lzip and xz compression formats (GNOME bug 579467, GNOME bug 582237). The “Palimpset” Disk Utility now uses the new GtkInfoBar to show job progress, there are two screenshots available ((1) and (2)). Stefan Walter started working on a DBus API to gnome-keyring secrets, it is currently developed in the “dbus-api” branch. Shaun McCance merged Mallard support into both Yelp and gnome-doc-utils. GTK+ gained support for special icons for XDG user dirs, this will allow themes to provide different icons for the Documents, Downloads, Music… folders . (GNOME bug 541276) Paul Cutler applied a serie of patches to GNOME User Docs (both User Guide and Accessibility Guide), fixing typos and updating them to match the current desktop reality. Rhythmbox command line control program (rhythmbox-client) got support for song rating . (GNOME bug 583108) Support for touchpad parameters has been added to gnome-settings-daemon (GNOME bug 578444), it still needs a matching patch to be applied in the control center to have a new Touchpad tab in the Mouse Preferences (GNOME bug 154029) Top projects Project Commits f-spot 123 gnome-bluetooth 66 conduit 62 libchamplain 59 gnumeric 55 empathy 54 gtk+ 53 tracker 47 evolution 45 glib 43 Top authors Author Commits Modules Stephane Delcroix 73 f-spot John Carr 65 conduit, jhbuild Bastien Nocera 59 gnome-bluetooth, totem-pl-parser, nautilus-sendto Morten Welinder 54 gnumeric, gnomeweb-wml, goffice and others Matthias Clasen 50 gtk+, glib, gnome-settings-daemon and others Richard Hughes 47 gnome-power-manager, gnome-packagekit Emmanuel Rodriguez 43 libchamplain Runa Bhattacharjee 38 gtksourceview, gnome-utils, gnome-settings-daemon and others Toms Bauģis 33 hamster-applet Alexander Larsson 32 gvfs, glib, gtk+ and others (Software)
