* What's changed for Orca v2.26.2?

2.26.2 - 18-May-2009


* Fix for bug #466841 - Orca doesn't announce items when Alt+Tabbing
  if Compiz is enabled. This fix is designed to improve Orca's access
  to the basic window switcher in Compiz. There are still bugs in
  Compiz which make providing compelling access difficult, but this
  should at least make switching windows accessible.

* Fix for bug #577977 - provide speech feedback for "repeat last find"
  in Gedit.

* Fix for bug #580329 - Use show_uri() to display help window.

* Fix for bug #580423 - Remove deprecated libgnomeui dependency.  Use
  DBus org.gnome.SessionManager.Logout instead of

* Fix for bug #582684 - Arrowing left/right across tree tables causes
  whole row to be spoken.

* Where can I get it?
