Changes in SVN

December 20, 2008 – 1:08 pm

The latest since 0.9…

  • Does not truncate new line on contents piped in from a terminal.
  • Deletes duplicate item before appending new item.
  • Fix for control-click on some machines.
  • Simplified chinese, portuguese and polish translations.
  • Updated german translation.

Updating to 0.9

November 23, 2008 – 4:43 pm

There were changes done to the internal workings of the config file generation and parsing since 0.8. What this means is that some of your preferences may turn on or off when you upgrade, this is especially true for the “Use Copy” option. “Use Copy” is turned on by default in 0.9, but because of some variable name changes I did to improve readability in the code, it will turn off when you upgrade. Just remember to turn it back on :)

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

+ 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.

+ 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.

Latest Changes

October 13, 2008 – 12:43 am

X-Selection (also known as mouse selection or PRIMARY) has made its way into subversion. The regular clipboard and x-selection work concurrently, you can enable or disable any at will. The history menu will mark the item currently in x-selection in italics if it is not the same as your clipboard contents.

In addition, Parcellite now checks the history to check if a newly copied item is already in history. I will later make it so if it is already in history it will get bumped up as the newest item and its older copies be deleted.

New Preferences Dialog

October 4, 2008 – 8:55 pm

I’ve just done a comit of the new preferences dialog. The “General” tab was starting to feel to cramped and large so I’ve split into two: Behavior and Display. Also, the actions are editable with double clicks so I removed the edit button.

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.

Back Up

September 18, 2008 – 10:24 pm

The site is back to the way it use to look, thank you google cache. I lost all my posts and the comments though. I still get A LOT of database error messages and the site is sometimes terribly slow. I’ll have to wait and see until Source Forge says everything is back to normal.

More soon.

Lost Database Information

September 17, 2008 – 10:46 pm

I moved the site to Source Forge so this wouldn’t happen, but it happened anyways. The site was lost in the move, and now I have to rebuild it completely because I didn’t have a backup, I shouldn’t have put all my trust in Source Forge. It will be back up in the weekend hopefully.

Too upset at the moment to code, no updates to the code until the site is back to normal.
