Ticket #1769: [e]: ‘Window -> Kill’ might kill the wrong window

Whoever wrote the window border menu decided that not passing the target window’s object to the kill_window action was a great idea. Most likely this person was a criminal mastermind bend on destroying the human race, and did this with full knowledge that, under these circumstances, E17 would just take the currently focused border (even if it was not the right one) and kill it. Bravo, you ignoble evil-doer, bravo.

Ticket #1716: video preview not resized to fit

I probably would have caught this much sooner if gstreamer hadn’t decided to eat a big bag of dicks instead of letting VLC play videos.

Other Improvements Today:

  • Themes menu no longer scans theme directories every time it is created
  • Adding/removing/resizing monitors with desktop gadgets enabled should no longer trigger hard-to-debug crashes
  • enlightenment_start works on BSDs again
  • Modifying one clock gadget no longer also modifies other clock gadgets
  • Another alpha release

    I wish e17’s file manager would show partitions and be able to mount them automatically on selecting like Gnome and KDE do. Also in VirtualBox, if I want to load an iso from another partition, I can’t because unlike in other DE, there is no option to load them. Is there a GUI way to mount partitions?

    I think it would be nice to have an integrated chat module like the Gnome Shell people do. That would be a nice feature.

    The Hannes Janetzek PPA hasn’t been updated in weeks.. Is there any other place we can leech a precompiled E17 for Ubuntu from?

    Some of us non-devs are too n00b to compile, even with easy scripts.
