A new bug-fix version has been released for the 3.1 series! (v 3.1.1)

How to install it: http://www.glx-dock.org/ww_page.php?p=Accueil&lang=en#0-Installation

e.g. for Ubuntu users: launch these commands from a terminal
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cairo-dock-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade ## if Cairo-Dock is already installed
sudo apt-get install cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins ## if Cairo-Dock is not installed
(our PPA and our repositories for Debian and Ubuntu have been updated)

Feel free to share this news (and screenshots, screencasts, etc.)

Detailed ChangeLog
  • Core: [by Fabrice Rey & Matthieu Baerts]
    • Dialogues Mgr: Rewrite blocking dialogue to avoid bug with 'terminal' applet
    • GUI
      • Simple:
        • Used the right translation for titles of all main categories and description of views
        • With old versions of GTK2 (< 2.22, e.g. on Debian stable or Ubuntu Lucid): this config panel had tabs but without any widget inside
      • Advanced:
        • Widget Items: Invisible modules: displayed the title (which is translated)
    • Icon Mgr:
      • Fixed a crash with the icons theme when it is reloaded
      • Icon was invisible for launchers that are pinned to a given desktop
      • Icons were not correctly sorted (it impacted Shortcuts)
    • Init: Used dbus_g_thread_init before 'gtk_init' in order to be called before the first use of DBus
      • It should fixed a "random" crash when clicking on logout applet.
    • Help: always check the composite on startup, until the user choose not to
    • Theme: Panel:
      • Added Printers-Menu.conf file (needed to place this applet at the right position)
      • Dnd2share: used the new 'busy' animation
    • Misc.:
      • Compilation libdir: some distro (e.g. Gentoo) use LIB_SUFFIX flag: used a specific case for that
      • Updated translations

  • Plug-ins: [by Fabrice Rey & Matthieu Baerts]
    • Application Menu:
      • Recent-Menu was on a wrong section after an update of the menu (e.g. when a program was added/removed)
      • Menu: file name: firstly checked with XDG_MENU_PREFIX env variable (e.g. to use 'xfce-applications.menu' instead of 'applications.menu' in XFCE)
    • Clock: we need to include 'gdk/gdkkeysyms.h' for older versions of Gtk2
    • Dialogues: avoid using blocking dialogues (except if it's needed)
    • Dock-rendering: clean the dock correctly when switching from a 'Panel' view to another one.
    • Keyboard:
      • Forgot to replace the old (and temporally) emblems for CapsLock/NumLock (thanks to Freb )
      • Gtk3: Used GDK functions to get the num/caps lock states because it seems it doesn't work very well with xKlavier functions with recent versions...
      • Clean old code
    • MusicPlayer:
      • Songs dropped on the icon were not enqueued
      • Mpris2: some players are not able to give a 'int64' value for 'mpris:length'
      • If the music player gives us a '.desktop' filename, check first if it's a valid name before doing something more (e.g. Amarok give us a wrong name and then, it was not possible to re-launch Amarok from this applet)
    • Shortcuts:
      • Fixed a possible crash if the removed icon was at the beginning of the list
      • Allowed shortcuts like 'Browse Network', 'Browse recent files', and 'Open Trash' to quickly open the corresponding URI
    • Sound Control:
      • Alsa backend: Handled this case: the default card is not the card that we want to control
      • When setting the volume while the output is mute, un-mute it
    • Status-Notifier:
      • Fixed a typo with the version of its .conf file
      • Don't add an empty icon path to the icons theme
    • Third-party applet: Store the icon name in order to use a new icon if the icon theme changes
    • Misc.:
      • Compilation: Status-Notifier: fixed a compilation error if 'indicator' is not found.
      • Updated translations

  • Third-Party applets: [by Fabrice Rey & Matthieu Baerts]
    • Calendar: used 'ncal' instead of 'cal' because it uses the locale to know if the week has to starts with Monday or Sunday
    • Screensaver_inhibitor: check for xscreensaver before the dbus services
    • Misc.:
      • Uniformed some common labels in the conf files
      • Updated translations
