Metacity: Recent Mutter and Metacity activity

view full story

http://blogs.gnome.org – Here’s a quick roundup of recent happenings with Mutter and Metacity. Sugar Labs want to use Metacity (and not Mutter) in Sugar, and ran into the problem that undecorated maximised windows are necessarily fullscreened.  A patch was provided to turn this off. Two on tabs: Sam H wants to integrate tabs into Mutter; Ivan Denker wants to know whether the browser’s tabs and other controls will compete with the desktop’s controls, now that Firefox is rethinking their tab support. Thomas Thurman asked about changing the theme format. Owen Taylor fixed a crash if Mutter started on the first workspace. Photo © Fernando Ariotti, cc-by-nc-nd. (Software)
