1.2.1 is Released

Nothing for years, then two releases in the same day. I missed some patches on github.

Change Log:

V1.2.1 Monday, Jan 23, 2017
+Implemented patch from Christopher Oliver that fixes a memory access bug on history clear.
+Fixed minor missing fclose bug in save_history credits dcb.
+Fixed bug 144, Clipboard text quoted for action commands.

V1.2.0 Monday, Jan 23, 2017
+Removed -d option.
+Fixed bug 151, history clear not working.
+Fixed bug 150, Command line examples not working. Note: parcellite must be running already.
+Fixed bug 147, resource leak on history file.
+Fixed bug 143, Parcellite fails to start as daemon. Also fixes Debian bug 785472.
+Added TW_zh .po file.

Github is the best place for source. SF was flaky there for a while, so I moved the source code portion to git hub. There is a repo on SF, but it may not be up to date.

1.2.0 is Released

January 24, 2017 – 6:36 am

1.2.0 is Released
It’s been a while, but most bugs are handled, and the ones that aren’t, are not repeatable. I have many feature requests, but features bring more bugs, and there’s not many users asking for those features. If you want one, please comment on the feature request.

Please submit a bug ticket if you see a bug with this release.

This is also at github

There is no appindicator deb for i386.

No news is good news?

December 10, 2016 – 5:46 am

I’ve recently had questions about if this project is still alive.

It is, but it seems to mostly just work. Either that, or it’s broken and nobody is filing reports.

I’ve not had a lot of time to work on feature requests, and all repeatable outstanding bugs should be closed, so until that changes, there’s not a lot of development going on.  But if it’s working, do I really need to fix it?

Parcellite Trim functions and deselection

October 8, 2014 – 3:01 pm

Since I’ve had several bug reports on deselection issues (many of which are valid), I need to clarify the deselection bug regarding any of the trim/ignore functions.

If you are using primary and one of these functions in Parcellite, you will get your text deselected for Gnome applications (and others). It does make some sense if the application is monitoring the clipboard for changes and sees that it changed, it should deselect the text, because whatever is selected is no longer in the clipboard.

If someone knows a way around this, I’d be glad for the input.

Nice work around for Unity

February 13, 2014 – 3:00 am

Wish I had found the link sooner. Here’s a work around for all non-libappindicator systray icons.

Disclaimer: I’ve not tested it myself.

Parcellite was fixed some time ago for Unity, but it serves as a good link to know.
Cheers!
