 NEWS: gnome-system-tools-1.0.2

GNOME System Tools Version 1.0.2, 2004-09-13

The GNOME System Tools version 1.0.2 "Nothing to put here" have been released.

The GNOME System Tools are a set of cross-platform configuration utilities for
Linux and other Unix systems. Internally they are divided in front ends and 
back ends. The front end knows nothing about the underlying system and provides 
the same user interface across the different types of systems. The backend 
knows how to read and write the configuration information. The GNOME System 
Tools do not impose a new database on the system: they work with the default 
configuration files so that configuration can still be done by hand or by 
other tools.

Right now the GNOME System Tools fully support various distros/OS such as:
Red hat, Mandrake, SuSE, Fedora, Debian, Gentoo, Slackware, FreeBSD, OpenNA,
PLD, Vine and Specifix.

WARNING: By default, only the users, network and time tools will be built,
for compiling the other tools you can do:


at configure time

Changes since last release

  - fixed build issues (Jamesh, Heikki Tauriainen, me)
  - fixed configuration files generation from scratch (me)
  - fixed crash with newer Gtk/Glib

  - Improved debian wireless essid and WEP key parsing (me)

  - Fixed crash when the partitions table can't be found (me)

 NEWS: metacity-2.8.8


This is a stable release for Gnome 2.8.2.

Thanks Rob Adams, Anders Carlsson, Elijah Newren, and Soeren Sandmann,
for fixes in this release.

  * Correct the requested number of keycodes (Rob) [#155247]
  * Make the "showing desktop" mode be per-workspace instead of
    per-screen. (Elijah) [#142198]
  * Don't try to use an ARGB visual at all if the depth isn't
    32-bit. This caused major slowdowns with Composite
    enabled. (Anders)
  * Fix the modifier key breakage introduced by an Xorg
    change. (Soeren) [#151554]
  * Fix the alt-tab order--if the most recently used window is not
    focused, start alt tabbing with that window instead of the one
    after it (Elijah) [#156251]
  * Use only numbers from the Fibonacci sequence for micro version
    numbers at Havoc's request (thus the reason this is 2.8.8 instead
    of 2.8.7--2.8.4 and 2.8.6 were mistakes that didn't comply with
    this requirement)
