gnome-panel 2.10.0
Posted on: 03/07/2005 10:29 AM

gnome-panel 2.10.0 has been released:

GNOME panel is, well, the panel in GNOME. You know, the bar you see at the top and at the bottom of your desktop, with menus and lots of applets on it. That's it. That's the panel.

This is the "Mais où sont passés les bugs ?" release: since the 2.8.0 release, 732 gnome-panel bugs were marked as RESOLVED (including 190 FIXED, 347 DUPLICATE, 82 INCOMPLETE and 74 NOTGNOME) and 321 were marked as CLOSED. Of course, this is just some figures from bugzilla and it doesn't even count a lot of other fixes and improvements. We now have 144 open bugs and 94 open enhancement requests in bugzilla. And we hope to bring these numbers down again in the next development cycle.

Since gnome-panel 2.9.2, the gnome-panel use the /apps/panel gconf directory to store its settings. The settings that were previously stored in /apps/panel/profiles will be automatically migrated. Since gnome-panel 2.9.2 also, the panel depends on gnome-menus and we should finally enjoy the Desktop Menu Specification. If you don't see any items in the menus, then you probably forgot to set $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS to $(sysconfdir)/xdg

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release.
