This week, some golang packages were updated to newer snapshots - or newly released stable versions.

Additionally, the gala window manager was updated to a new snapshot for supporting “area” type screenshots, and the slingshot application menu was rebuilt again, because the last build didn’t pick up the updated granite library correctly.

The elementary-nightly COPR repository now exclusively contains packages built from git snapshots, as I’ve migrated all remaining packages from using bzr checkouts to git.

fedora updates

I’ve submitted the following packages to the fedora repositories:

COPR updates

The following packages were adapted to use git sources for building snapshots (including a .99 version bump to ensure a correct upgrade path):

  • cerbere
  • contractor
  • maya-calendar
  • pantheon-files
  • scratch-text-editor
  • switchboard-plug-bluetooth
  • switchboard-plug-security-privacy

Every package built for the elementary-nightly COPR repository now uses git sources for snapshots, and no more bzr is used.
