Application Menu Status for 19 August
Hear ye, hear ye,
It’s been a while since the last application menu status. Since the last one the app menu developers have had a sprint, a bunch of other work in Unity, including some holidays as well as a new child process in Ted’s case, so now things can settle and be back to “normal”:
Here are the changelogs:
Most of the work is now feature complete, here are the bugs which are currently “hot” on the radar for the team which have the most priority:
As always, if you see an issue that you feel needs extra love please
feel free to ping myself, dbarth, or seb128.
Application Menu Status for 7 July
Another week, another release of the new menu for UNE. This week indicator-appmenu did not have any releases, as the bugs reported have been in appmenu-gtk. Cody Russell has released 0.1.1 of appmenu-gtk, which is in Maverick and currently building for the Lucid PPA. Here are the highlights:
- Bullets should now appear as bullets instead of checkmarks
- Fix errors in GIMP
Note that if you are using Unity that there is a mutter bug that breaks submenus that might be confused for an appmenu bug, please see: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/592949
The menu itself is in pretty good shape right now, unless someone has any objections we’d like to turn the double menus off in the applications for next week’s release. Special thanks to Hernando Torque for his detailed bug reporting for the menus!
Application Menu goings on …
As you may or may not know, we’re working on a global application menu for the Netbook Edition of Maverick. Here’s the latest update from Friday, as well as some new updates on bugs. So far it’s coming along, once we crack those three big bugs this week we should be in fine shape for Alpha 2, thanks to the hard work of Cody Russell and Ted Gould.
I’d also like to personally thank the following people for helping file bugs and/or debug the application menu: Jeremy Bicha, Alexander, Anmar Oueja, David Baucum, saks, Omar Akram, Jono Bacon, David Barth, cariboo907, Kiwinote, Matthew Paul Thomas, Niko Kurtti, Maia Kozheva, black, Tommaso R. Donnarumma, Zygmunt Krynicki, Hernando Torque, Sense Hofstede, Sidnei da Silva, Sergey Klimov, Nikita Vetoshkin, and e-prast.
