Looks like things are getting back to normal with a pretty average week. There’s some updates for elementary packages, and one updated ruby gem. Changes include an update that finally fixes the Geoclue2 agent in Pantheon, and brings updated and extended language support to the rouge code highlighting library.

fedora updates

elementary packages

I’ve updated the package for the elementary GTK theme to the latest version, which includes visual fixes for a lot of corner cases, including some tweaks for the dark variant of the stylesheet.

package version release changes
elementary-theme 5.2.4 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29 5.2.3 → 5.2.4

The latest version of the Geoclue2 agent for Pantheon finally fixes the old problem of the daemon not relaunching on request after it had timed out after 10 seconds of inactivity. I’ve submitted updates for this release to all currently supported releases of fedora.

package version release changes
pantheon-agent-geoclue2 1.0.2 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29 1.0.1 → 1.0.2

Some changes were recently merged into the master branch of Gala, so I decided to update the fedora package to a newer snapshot again. The changes include fixed rendering of some UI elements after switching display scaling factor, and a minor memory corruption issue.

package version release changes
gala 0.3.1 0.28.20190701.git5f1dbf1.fc31, 0.28.20190701.git5f1dbf1.fc30, 0.26.20190701.git5f1dbf1.fc29 1024813 → 5f1dbf1

The biggest update this week was probably the latest version of the Granite GTK library, which brings more functionality for its accelerator utility functions, and deprecates some outdated or obsolete functionality.

Additionally, starting with this release, the controversial change to depend on the Wingpanel Date & Time indicator settings was reverted again – so, my downstream patches on top of both Granite and the Wingpanel Date & Time indicator are no longer necessary.

package version release changes
granite 5.2.4 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29 5.2.3 → 5.2.4

ruby packages

Several small releases were recently published for the rouge code highlighting library (which is used by Jekyll), and I decided to push updated packages to all currently supported fedora releases. The latest releases bring fixes for a lot of language lexers, and add support for a few new languages as well.

package version release changes
rubygem-rouge 3.5.1 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29 3.3.0 → 3.5.1
