Compiz released

Dmitry Shachnev today released Compiz You can read release announcement here.

The biggest changes are that CCSM (CompizConfig Settings Manager) has been ported to GTK 3 and Python 3. GTK 3 change might be good news to users who still use Compiz and has HiDPI monitor.

One more interesting change is that Compiz now can load configuration from multiple files. This will allow GNOME Flashback to install its own configuration and adjust it as needed without changes in compiz. For example Unity configuration already has been moved from compiz to unity.

My first commit to systemd

Recently Ubuntu got systemd 240, unfortunately it broke logout functionality for GNOME Flashback and also for Unity. After some debugging I found problem and fixed it. For little more info you can check systemd pull request.

Menu module in GNOME Panel

For very long time I am working on new libgnome-panel library. It is still private library, but at some point it will become public replacing old libpanel-applet library. My own requirement to make it public is that all internal objects are ported to new library.

After GNOME Panel 3.30 release I have finished converting menu objects to menu module. To keep existing functionality I had to introduce new functionality that will be available also to 3rd party applet developers once library will be public.
