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.

Upcoming releases

LXDM 0.4.0 was just released. Get the file at sourceforge.

But that is not the only thing happening in LXDE land. Next week we will do at least three releases if nothing special happens. PCManFM, libfm and LXDM.

PCManFM and libfm has been in development with no updates since last October and the much sought after feature of a directory tree has returned.

LXDM will “just” be a service release to get more translations into shape; Esperanto makes its first appearance in an LXDE component by this. Happy times. All three components are scheduled for release at the 27th of July.

The best guess by now is that more components will get releases in the coming weeks, some of them has seen no releases for years but has seem interesting features hidden in the git HEAD.

UPDATE!
LXDM 0.4.0 had an error in the release, there has been a new release dubbed LXDM 0.4.1 to fix this issue and include the l10n updates as mentioned above.
