http://blogs.gnome.org – This week… 1776 commits, in 177 projects, by 233 happy hackers (and 279 were translation commits). This was hackfest week for Epiphany, WebKitGTK+ (and other related modules), go and read Xan Lopez and Gustavo Noronha summaries. Or read on for my particular pick… Benjamin Otte added support for favicons the the epiphany tabs-reloaded extension. Content-Encoding support landed in libsoup (GNOME bug 522772) Custom user-agent support has been added. There is a new info bar widget at the top of the web view, used to ask if credentials have to be saved. Maxim Ermilov added command and path completion to the Alt+F2 dialog of GNOME Shell . (GNOME bug 597677) Also in GNOME Shell Colin Walters added an extension system, there is no UI yet, it will come later . (GNOME bug 599661) Johan Dahlin added a Makefile.introspection file to gobject-introspection, to be used by other projects, and modified pango and gtk+ to use it. After some discussion on nautilus-list and gnome-shell-list, Alexander Larsson changed Nautilus to use its browser mode by default. The GNOME Terminal preferences dialog got a new “unlimited scrollback” option (GNOME bug 599443). After a comment in last week digest edition, Paolo Bacchilega changed File Roller to use AES128 instead of AES256 as encryption type. Libgnomekbd got a new GkbdStatus widget implementing a status icon, Sergey Udaltsov wrote about it in kbd stuff going threezero.
