Upcoming 0.9 Release

October 2, 2008 – 10:19 pm

Some of the changes included in the upcoming 0.9 release that have already be commited to subversion:

+ Confirm clear option.
+ Parcellite menu hotkey.
+ Hungarian and turkish translation.

+ Fixed daemon mode.
+ Changed actions preferences to use GtkTreeView’s built in editing mode.
+ Fixed parcellite-startup.desktop to include “Type=Application” to prevent
desktop-file-validate from failing.

Also in 0.9 will be the option to use x-selection, also known as mouse selection or primary, instead of the regular clipboard.

  2. Will there be possibility to use both clipboards? (In a way that would somehow magically knew which one I want to use:-))

  4. Well, you said that it will be possible to use mouse selection _instead_ of regular clipboard. I understand it that it will be an either or choice - one will not be able to use both clipboards at once.

    I use parcellite mainly as a cache for clipboard so that nothing gets lost and I would love it if I would be able to cache even mouse selection. (when I used to use glipper it happend to me once that I accidentaly deleted a several page long text but it survived in a clipboard because before I deleted it, I selected it)

    But then you need to decide what item in parcellite cache is going to be used when you want to paste something. That is not that hard (what is in regular, gets used when ctrl-c (or if someone uses different shortcut, that shortcut) is hit or when you manually select paste from a menu, what is in mouse selection gets used when using middleclick), but when you select something from parcellite history to be actual, you need to decide, which way it is going to be pasted.

  5. I’m implementing them both concurrently, with options to turn either on or off.

  6. “Confirm clear option”

    do you mean that there will be a dialog box to confirm before clearing the clipboard ?

    Do you think it is necessary since you don’t erase any file or important piece of information

  7. Confirm clear is off by default. The reason I added it is because some people have the notification area in the bottom, you can easily mess up and clear your history by mistake.

    Besides, it’s really simple to implement and some people will actually enable it.

  8. Hi, great job on parcellite. I am testing it on a laptop running Ubuntu. I like the way Klipper works on my KDE Suse desktop and really miss it in Ubuntu.

    Does parcellite not pick up the X-clipboard? I notice that items highlighted, for example, in an X-terminal, do not appear in parcellite, whereas items highlighted in Firefox and OpenOffice which I guess is the Gnome/GTK clipboard do get picked up. Would be great if parcellite could use both clipboards, similarly to klipper. Thanks for any info,

  9. It will be in v0.9 and is now available in the subversion repository.

  10. + Fixed parcellite-startup.desktop to include “Type=Application” to prevent
    desktop-file-validate from failing.

    Please also remove “Application” from the Categories, because according to the [url=http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/apa.html]freedesktop.org menu specification[/url] it’s not a valid category any longer. TIA!

  11. Do you have a similar function to ‘Snippets’ (as in Glipper) in Parcellite yet? (Permanent items stored even after a history clear)

    I use this a lot and has kept me away from Parcellite to date. I’d like to see this feature and use instead of Glipper ideally. Thanks

  12. Not yet Jem, but I had noted it down as feature I will implement.

    By Xyhthyx on Nov 11, 2008

  13. Great. Next release? ;)

  14. Search ! Search ! Search !

    I use Ditto-cp a lot at work. This is a Windows clipboard manager which rocks. With Ditto, I can search for any item in my history. This is a must. Use case : I know I copied this web address some days ago, it may be in my history, just click in the search field and Voilà.

    Another feature is to be able to flag an entry as not deletable. It will be kept forever (not manually cleared, nor removed when history reaches max elements).

  15. I’m going to eventually add a table-view of the history contents where you can edit it in many ways, including sorting, deleting, editing entries and filtering/searching.
