Hello guys, I have placed version 1.0.pre10 of gnome-libs on: ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/testing/gnome-libs-1.0.pre10.tar.gz I would appreciate a lot if people could test this version and install this on an existing system where GNOME has been installed and tell me if everything works fine and nothing breaks. I will release 1.0.10 on wednesday if no problems are found on this release. Please test as much as you can. If you are installing in Red Hat 6.0 (or Red Hat 5.2 and you are using the Red Hat RPMS, please read the section at the end). * New in this release * Documentation * Man page for gnome-config program, includes sample usage of it in Makefiles and how to write Conf.sh modules (me). * TODO.sgml included that describes the status of documentation for gnome-libs (Federico) * Includes new version of the FAQ. * gnome-app-helper documented (me). * gnome-mdi documentation updated (Jaka). * gnome-config * Now supports per-module version information: --modversion. * Can scan more than one directory for Conf.sh files. It uses the environment variable GNOME_LIBCONFIG_PATH to pull a list of directories that contain Conf.sh files. (ie, you can finally use gnome-config to install third party libraries on your RH system without requiring root). * CORBA: * GNOME::object renamed to GNOME::obj, given that object is a reserved word in every possible case combination in CORBA (Elliot, me). * Renamed GNOME::Editor and GNOME::File to Desktop::File and Desktop::Editor. * Translations: * Slovak (Bobo Rajec). * British (Robert). * GNORBA: * Added server launching debugging extensions (Elliot). * Zvt * Start support for for 2-byte fonts (Michael Zucchi). * Supports xterm-like extend-select mechanism (Michael Zucchi). * Make the background image drawing work properly with tiled images. * Fixed various bugs from the bug tracking system. * Fixes: * Various bug fixes spotted by David Kaelbling (comparission instead of assignments in a couple of places). * Gnome-moz-remote escapes the "," character now (Owen). * Gnome canvas memory leak fix (Morten, Federico) * Gnome canvas images redraw queuing fixes (Federico) * Gnome calculator does factorials better (Robert Brady). * Notes on deploying on Red Hat 6.0 For Red Hat 6.0 users or other FSSTND users, you will need to configure, compile and install gnome-libs like this: ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/lib make make prefix=/usr sysconfdir=/etc install Happy hacking!
