|| ||vte-0.19.1 released|
|| ||Mon, 01 Dec 2008 19:45:41 -0500|
vte-0.19.1 is released. This is a major new devel release. We're aiming for
releasing 0.20.0 for GNOME 2.26 and hopefully vte 1.0 for GNOME 2.28. Some
API has been marked as deprecated in this release. These are symbols that
will be removed in 1.0. There has been a bunch of other exciting changes in
this release. Many thanks to ChPe for continuously working on keeping vte 1.0
- New, PangoCairo, rendering backend. This is functionally equivalent to the
previous default backend which was Xft. And just a tad bit faster.
- All other backends are removed.
- Configurable cursor shape (block, underline, I-beam).
- Preliminary object properties added to VteTerminal.
- Vte now depends on glib, pango, gtk+, and nothing else.
- API that will be removed in vte 1.0 has been marked deprecated in this
- gnome-pty-helper does no longer depend on and link to glib
- General code maintenance and cleanup.
- Misc bug fixes.
- Bugs fixed in this release:
