Another week, another round of updates. I probably spent most time on making
sure the Pantheon session will work correctly on the upcoming release of fedora
30 – which included me backporting some functionality from GNOME 3.32 to my
compatibility package for
mutter 3.28, because why wouldn’t it …
As always, there was an urgent last-minute change necessary to make sure the
Pantheon session would work on the imminent, next release of fedora. This time,
GNOME 3.32 components (
moved functionality around (into
mutter itself), which made my
compatibility package for Pantheon crash and die - which is, obviously, bad.
gala (the Pantheon window manager) still doesn’t support
versions 3.30 and newer, the only thing I could do was to
effectively backport some of the necessary changes to my package for
3.28. While I was at it, I included all changes from the upstream
branch into the fedora package, as well, to pull in all the latest bug-fixes
that weren’t part of any release yet.
I didn’t find any issues with my updated package since I built it, so I already pushed it to the stable repository for fedora 30, so it will hopefully be available on release day (and I still hope that nothing else blows up in the meantime, and that I didn’t introduce new bugs while backporting the necessary changes).
|mutter328||3.28.3||7.fc31, 7.fc30||port to GNOME 3.32|
I also backported another fix for the elementary LightDM greeter to fix some
visual issues and glitches by hard-coding the
elementary GTK and icon themes.
This change will also be part of the next stable release of
elementary-greeter, which will also feature a big redesign (and a whole lot of
new bugs 😣️).
|elementary-greeter||3.3.1||3.fc31, 3.fc30, 2.fc29||hard-code GTK and icon theme|
I also updated the package for the Display settings plug for Switchboard to the latest version, which features updated translations, and nothing else.
|switchboard-plug-display||2.1.8||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28||2.1.7 → 2.1.8|
The latest version of Wingpanel brings a fix for correctly updating the panel state when windows are moved from one workspace to another. I’ve pushed updated packages to all currently supported releases of fedora.
|wingpanel||2.2.4||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28||2.2.3 → 2.2.4|
I also updated the
pyrsistent python package to the latest version, which
brings improvements for type hints, and drops support for python 3.4. The
updated packages will be available on fedora 30 and newer.
|python-pyrsistent||0.15.1||1.fc31, 1.fc30||0.14.11 → 0.15.1|
I updated my COPR package for the
aesop PDF reader to the latest version,
which contains fixes around file type associations, window sizing issues, and
broken translation support.
|aesop||1.1.1||1||1.1.0 → 1.1.1|
I also updated the
quilter Markdown editor this week – twice. The new versions
bring updated and new translations, and fixes for data loss in some
|quilter||1.8.3||1||1.8.2 → 1.8.3|
|quilter||1.8.4||1||1.8.3 → 1.8.4|
