tickr (0.6.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* In pref windows, some setting changes (like 'read n items per feed')
need the stream to be reloaded, so now we use:
instead of:
* Fix 'quick feed picker (selected feeds) closes when pointer leaves
win area' and implement it as a setting.
* In pref window, disabling screen limits updates win_y and win_w
limits on the fly.
* Max options number now set to 128.
* Pref win changes:
- remove 'system' colors buttons
- increase gtk table row spacings
* If gradient bg set, compute text shadow color no longer from
bg_color but from gradient.
* Quick feed picker (selected feeds) closes when pointer leaves win
area. Plus: quick feed picker opened *also* by Ctrl + mouse
* Complete RSS 1.0 support (Closes: #688099) and fix/rewrite a few
things in feed parser code.
* In tickr_feedparser.c: ending '\n' removed when adding string to
XML_DUMP (left when adding string to XML_DUMP_EXTRA).
* Replace update_win_dims() with update_win_dims_and_loc() so that if
ticker location happens to be wrong, it's always and quickly reset.
* Add RSS 1.0 (RDF) support.
* In tickr_main.c / main(), change:
gtk_widget_set_size_request(env->win, 1, 1);
gtk_window_resize(GTK_WINDOW(env->win), 1, 1);
to try to get rid of "ghost" square window at startup (but is this
fully effective ?)
Also change:
gtk_widget_set_size_request(env->win, 0, 0)
gtk_widget_set_size_request(env->win, 1, 1)
in update_win_dims().
* In feed picker - multiple selection mode: start reading selection
with highlighted feed - more exactly url in entry (if any) / first
one otherwise.
* Remove (useless ?) app version number from exported OPML feed list
* Only a little editor issue - some editors get confused (geany colors
get confused) by things like:
so now we put a space in between, like this:
THIS_IS_A_#DEFINE "____string____"
* If win_w = 0, win_w = detected screen width (same as 'full width'
but from command line).
* Fix xml namespaces issue in tickr_feedparser.c, when, for instance,
'media:title' exists along with 'title' and we then get 'title'
twice. Now, we make sure no extra namespace is used before comparing
strings with 'title', 'description', etc.
* Fix stupid bug in format_resource() 'translate html entities' when
'&' alone is detected (ie without a following ';'). Also fix
'translating' numerical entities with leading '0' in value string.
* New option 'disablescreenlimits' which allows win_y and win_w to be
greater than screen dimensions.
* A few default settings changed.
* Gradient bg.
