This week was kind of busy, and the next few weeks will be too, I think -
a lot of elementary projects will see new releases in preparation for the
beta release of elementaryOS 5.0, and I’ll be working on finally getting
jekyll working and up to date again on fedora.
I’ve packaged two new elementary projects for fedora, which had their first stable releases this week - the GeoClue2 agent (which pops up a confirmation dialog when an application asks for the devices’ location), and the new elementary sound theme.
I’ve also updated the session settings to now require both the PolKit and GeoClue2 agents, so requests for location and authorization now work by default in the Pantheon session on fedora.
|pantheon-session-settings||28.1||2.fc29||Added geoclue 2 agent|
|pantheon-session-settings||28.1||2.fc28||Added geoclue 2 agent|
|pantheon-session-settings||27.1||2.fc27||Added geoclue 2 agent|
A stable update for the
vala compiler (version
0.38.10) introduced a new
build error for
noise, which was already fixed on fedora 28 and later, where
this issue occurred earlier. So, I included the upstream patch to fix the build
on fedora 27, too.
|noise||0.4.2||3.fc27||Fix FTBFS issue|
I’ve updated the outdated
packages on rawhide in preparation for updating
jekyll to the latest version.
github.com/sasha-s/go-deadlock golang project received a fix for a
possible deadlock issue upstream, which I backported to the fedora package just
to be on the safe side.

An updated version of the
cerbere watchdog for the
Pantheon session was
released. Additionally, I tagged a related
for rawhide to account for changes in
cerbere. Both packages were updated in
I also updated the
gala window manager to a newer git snapshot, which fixed
building it against the unstable version of mutter present on rawhide (
and should resolve some issues with taking screenshots and HiDPI support.
Due to an soname bump in the
gnome-desktop3 package in fedora 28, I had to
packages in the
elementary-stable COPR repository to fix install conflicts.
As mentioned above, I released version
for fedora rawhide (and what will become fedora 29) to add compatibility with
the latest version of
