E17’s desk pager, the gadget which shows all the virtual desktops and allows switching and moving windows between the desks, has been mostly unchanged for a long time. Thus, it’s no real surprise that this ticket, which requests inclusion of background wallpapers into the pager, went overlooked for so long. Feature added.
While hacking around in the pager, I discovered that the ‘show pager names’ option didn’t work as expected. LET NO BUG GO UNFIXED!
Some other behind-the-scenes updates took place on pager as well, but they weren’t important enough to list or screenshot for the purposes of this blog. Instead, here’s a link to the new EFL terminal, Terminology. It’s been in development for a whole month and has lots of neat features, like playing movies as the background.
