this week I've been working mostly on the Vala port of Sezen, and
this is what I did:
* implemented subclass of GtkCellRendererPixbuf, which uses a signal
that is emitted when the pixbuf is rendered for the first time and
therefore allows us to avoid unnecessary loading of thumbnails which
wouldn't be displayed anyway (a generic pixbuf is used the first time -
ie. "gtk-file" / "gtk-missing-image").
* accepted Seif's challenge for gnome-panel applet with sezen inside
- though he suggested to use the standard Sezen window, but I wanted to
go for a more "panely" look and decided to use standard GtkMenu to
implement it and then I've been fighting with Gtk to allow me to stuff
some non-standard widgets into menu (Entry and scrollable IconView), but
in the end I won. (for more info about the panel applet feel free to
* changed the search implementation in the Vala version of Sezen - now
it doesn't treat everything as exact phrase search, instead supports
"quoted phrase search".
* worked on further speeding up of the search
Other than Sezen, I also merged into zeitgeist-dataproviders the vim
plugin, which I've been using for the past couple of days and already
found some issues with it, which I'll try to fix during the next week.
Unfortunately I didn't work on the totem plugin as I planned last week,
as it's currently lower on the priority list.
For the next week I was already tasked with Vala rewrite of
zeitgeist-datahub to lower the system requirements of running ZG, and
once this is done I'll work more on Sezen.
