http://blogs.gnome.org – This week… 2106 commits, in 195 projects, by 235 happy hackers (and 348 were translation commits). Behdad Esfahbod added the possibility to save the content of a terminal . (GNOME bug 24457) Vinagre feature to share a desktop over Telepathy has been ported to the latest Telepathy API, removing the requirement on Empathy to dispatch tubes. A new accounts-dialog module has been imported, talking to a new accountsservice service to manage accounts; Matthias Clasen announced it on his weblog: Old Promises. Parallel to those developments Milan Bouchet-Vala continued hacking on the accounts management in system-tools-backend and GNOME system tools, improving both backends and user interface. XChat-GNOME got rid of libgnome and libgnomeui (GNOME bug 584887); the GNOME Panel also got rid of them. gdm has been fixed to not display a different message for user unknown versus a failed password for a valid user, to avoid revealing which user names are valid without authenticating . (GNOME bug 606703) Andrea Cimitan speed up the Murrine engine in RGBA mode, fixing the way webkit windows were handled along the way. Alexander Larsson added support for lazy loading of giomodules to GLib. Thomas Wood worked on the evolution of the control center, moving to a single window approach, in the single-window-shell branch, read his weblog for more info. GNOME Disk Utility got a first cut at LVM2 support, with support for creating Logical Volumes; support for setting up striping and mirroring will come later. Bastien Nocera added cropping capability to the chooser widget of Cheese . (GNOME bug 606730) Toms Baugis improved the hamster applet so it will now adapt automatically to theme colours. Epiphany “find on page” feature has been improved to wait a little bit before searching for one or two character strings, which slowed down things .
