Unity Bitesize Bug Report for 11 January
Welcome to the Unity report! Greetings from Dallas, Texas, where the the Ubuntu Platform team is gathered to get work finished for Natty.
The Unity team would like to say hello! This week the team would like to welcome Connor Carney to the team:
I’m a biochemist and part-time programmer who has been been using Ubuntu since Jaunty. I decided to contribute because I’m impressed to see real innovation on the desktop in Unity, and I wanted to help that effort. That, and the sound menu bug was *really* bothering me…
Connor busted out Bug 681428 - scrolling does not work on the sound menu — which was an annoting regression introducted with the port to Compiz. Now that that’s sorted the Sound Menu can really come together.
Shout out to Bertrand Lorentz, who has been tirelessly fixing integration details with Conor Curran in upstream Banshee. Mike Terry has fixed quick lists showing up as transparent.
Expect a bunch of things landing in trunk this week and a Unity release on Thursday into Natty.
The Hit List
- 684193 compiz crashed with SIGSEGV in g_source_unref()
