Rhythmbox Applet 0.1.4 Released

Schoolwork has kept me busy for the past couple of months, so it’s only natural that winter break would finally let me push out a much-needed new version of Rhythmbox Applet! This release continues the tradition of fixing build problems on certain platforms; if you’ve had problems compiling or running the applet before, this release ought to have fixed them.

Changes in this release include:

  • Install the applet to ${libexecdir} instead of $PREFIX/lib/gnome-applets/rhythmbox-applet. Moving it there should fix problems running Rhythmbox Applet on systems that use a libexec directory, such as Fedora Core. Let’s hope I don’t need to move it around any more!
  • Check for errors when finding the paths to IDL files, so that problems are reported at configure time instead of compile time.
  • Use Rhythmbox’s icon in the applet menu instead of the generic one.
  • Add internationalization (i18n) support.

Coming soon to a Debian mirror near you!

Wow, that was fast. Within a week of the first public release of Rhythmbox Applet, someone’s already gone and filed an ITP (Intent to Package) for it in the Debian bug tracker. Barring unforeseen complications, this means that within a few weeks Rhythmbox Applet will be included in Debian.

I’ll take this as a sign that I ought to get cracking on that TODO list.

Rhythmbox Applet 0.1.2 Released

Another day, another release of Rhythmbox Applet to let it compile. Now it will compile if the files #included by Rhythmbox.idl aren’t in the same directory as Rhythmbox.idl itself. This is the case on Gentoo, but not Debian (on which 0.1.1 compiled without problems).

Download it from the Rhythmbox Applet project page.

Rhythmbox Applet 0.1.0 Released

Rhythmbox Applet 0.1.0 has just been released. This is the first release from the 0.1.x development branch. Although it’s labelled as a “development” release, it should be functional enough for normal use, with only a few minor rough spots that will be fixed before the 0.2.0 release.

More details can be found at the Rhythmbox Applet project page.
