Version 0.9 Released

November 21, 2008 – 12:20 am

Finally! The wait is over. Development has been slow, but it has not stopped. I will likely release smaller maintanence releases to add a number of smaller features and translation updates to this version before the big one point zero. Here is the ChangeLog for this release:

v0.9   Thursday, November 20 2008

New
+ Confirm clear option.
+ Parcellite menu hotkey.
+ Translated .desktop files.
+ Support for managing x-selection (primary).
+ Hungarian and turkish translation (disabled until tr.po is updated).
+ Prevent empty clipboard. Clipboard/Primary contents are backed up and recovered if they ever become NULL.

Changes
+ Fixed/updated daemon mode.
+ Changed preferences dialog.
+ Changed actions preferences to use GtkTreeView’s built in editing mode.
+ Fixed bug with icon showing up in –no-icon mode when you execute an action.
+ Fixed parcellite-startup.desktop to include “Type=Application” to prevent desktop-file-validate from failing.

  5. Hi Xyhthyx,

    Thank you very much for this release. The primary clipboard rocks my world since I’ve switched to Linux. :)

    A very cool feature that I remember from an old Windows clipboard manager, is to be able to use Ctrl+Alt+Down to go the previous item in history, and Ctrl+Alt+Up for the next item. (These keys would be configurable, of course.)

    Just thought I’d suggest this, because it can be very handy at times, eg: when using the Edit|Replace command in a text editor — you can copy both strings (that you want to use for replacing) to the clipboard, then call the Replace command, paste to first text field (”replace what”), then Tab for the next text field (”replace with”), then Ctrl+Alt+Down for the previous clipboard item and paste it there. Cool, eh?
