Project Release Information
Various code cleanups and bugfixes have been committed. gtkshell can now make use of the current icon theme for specified icon lookup. gshterm, based on VTE, is now a tabbed terminal. A toolbar providing mnemonics for tab operations has been added to the terminal widget. Command line usage is now generated automatically on invalid options. A new deskbar utility was added to ACE. ACE now looks up a system default value for a configuration key when a key has been marked as undefined before attempting to prompt the user.
This release features undo capabilities for the text editor widget, the addition of improved icons for the ACE Deskbar, a file management panel that is more useful than the iconic file manager, code to verify the presence of new configuration keys introduced as ACE evolves, icon-only toolbars for gtkshell app-mode, a simple calculator (interface to bc), fixed text editor scrolling, an initial xshell-based panel, left alignment of menu labels, and icons for each Deskbar menu item.
gtkshell now builds on Cygwin. The style 3 deskbar
menu has been updated according to freedesktop.org
guidelines. boehm-gc garbage collection is used if
available. VTE presence is determined at configure
time, and gtkshell can be built without it, but
with reduced functionality. The IDE terminal areas
are now resizable. A text editor has been added.
An application mode has been added. Special passed
commands are now used to allow for callback
specification. A clock applet has been added to
reduce fork overhead for the desk bar.
This is a bug fix release which fixes installation
of GUI definition language files and defines a
standard extension for such files.
Redundant relinking has been fixed in project makefile targets. A duplicate entry in the main panel has been fixed.
The GUIShell project is a collection of utilities facilitating the use of the GTK+ toolkit in shell scripts through the gtkshell utility. The ACE configuration environment provides sample scripts utilizing gtkshell for desktop utilities. rootcat provides the ability to display messages to the root window using Xft, allowing one to write status display scripts.
