menu-cache 0.4.0 released!

The backend library to read freedesktop.org application menu files has been released updating important aspects.

  • The libmenu-cache is made thread-safe. Thread-unsafe APIs are marked as deprecated now and should be never used in any multithreaded application.
  • Added creation of HTML developers documentation. It is triggered by configure script option –enable-gtk-doc.
  • The libmenu-cache is made more responsible by moving some time-critical operations into thread. Also it preloads saved cache file if it exists so it is available near instantly after menu_cache_lookup(). Caller still will get updates by adding notifier to the cache.
  • Added automatic shutdown of menu-cached server after some inactivity timeout (i.e. all clients were unregistered).
  • Fixed few memory problems (referencing errors and memory leaks).
  • Fix for bug #3501347: use g_get_tmp_dir() instead of hardcoded “/tmp”.
  • The libmenu-cache ABI bumped to 2.

menu-cache-0.4.0.tar.gz, sha1sum: f853d195cde1209873cc1f11bc401cce2cbef2f6

UPDATE: The release tar file is missing a file! Do not use it, grab 0.4.1 instead (or rather use the git repository).

PCManFM 1.0 and libfm 1.0!

This is a historic milestone for PCManFM and libfm. For some things you have waited years to get there, for other things it’s only been 10 months (since last release) but we can now bring you a MAJOR (really!) update. Mainly thanks to the work done by Andriy lately but ofc building on top of shoulders of giants who laid the foundation earlier. Just check the changelogs, they keep going on and on and on!
The changes ranges from minor things, nice features (multiple wall papers anyone?) to fixing memory leaks and crashes. And we can already spot the next minor feature upgrade of this bundle. Give 1.0 a good spin and report bugs in the tracker.

Towards PCManFM 1.0

To get PCManFM 1.0 in the best shape possible we just put a release candidate on the sourceforge file archive. Notable changes include external thumbnailer support, new file attribute dialog, support for modifier keys on drag and drop, symbolic link creation, individual wallpapers per desktop and documentation.

You will need libfm 1.0 to use pcmanfm 1.0 so they are released as a pair as usual.

Bug reports and patches should be submitted to the trackers at sourceforge. For bug reports be as specific as you can and try to cooperate with the developers if they ask for further testing. Hanging around the IRC channel #lxde at irc.oftc.net and reading the PCManFM project mailinglist are other good ways to interact with the project.

Get libfm and pcmanfm from the sourceforge file archive:
libfm-1.0rc1.tar.gz, sha1sum: 37528cde92dcbb1663c6c9d3eaf7fee51aacda8e
