The Cairo-Dock team (Fabounet, Matttbe, plus all the people who contributed with patches, bug-fixes, ideas and themes) is proud to announce the release of Cairo-Dock 3.2.

Here are the main changes of this version:
  • Multi-screen support has been improved
  • New applet : Screenshot, Indicator-Generic
  • New plug-in: Sound-Effects
  • Added Gnome-Shell support
  • Added GDM support for user switching
  • Added Systemd support for the session management (Fedora, Arch, ...)
  • Added support for all the Unity indicators
  • Countless bug-fixes and improvements
  • If you like the project, please donate



Other changes:
  • Core:
    • Applications:
      • Hide dock if active window overlaps: Also hide the dock if the active window doesn't have any icon in the dock (e.g. search box, properties window, etc.)
    • DBus:
      • Added the possibility to use a smaller timeout: e.g. avoid a freeze of the dock when using musicPlayer applet and the music player is frozen.
    • Desklets:
      • When the screen resolution changes, replace the desklets at their correct position
    • Desktop environment:
      • Added better support of Gnome-Shell (e.g. to show all windows with the same class, etc.)
    • Icons:
      • Should be less blurry
    • Launchers:
      • Launchers visible on a given desktop: handle this ability in every docks and not only the main dock
    • Menu:
      • Added the possibility to change the Sticky mode of windows
      • Improved buttons for windows actions
    • Overlays:
      • Should be less blurry
    • Periodic tasks launched in background:
      • Used less resources by using only one thread per task.
    • Theme:
      • Handle more error when packaging theme.
      • Default theme:
        • Updated the launchers to work with the latest version of KDE
        • Panel: replaced Printers-Menu by Indicator-Generic.
    • Updated translations: thanks to all contributors on Launchpad!
    • X manager:
      • added full support of multi-screens: when can now choose the screen number for each dock (or on all screens)
      • Improve the widget to select the screen in the config panel.
      • Added support of desktop names
      • Dock: Reserve space: we can only reserve space if the dock is on the edge and not on the middle of two screens (X11 limitation)
    • Compilation:
      • CMakeLists.txt: replace a lot of string by boolean (we can now use ON, YES, TRUE)
      • Removed the use of RTLD_DEEPBIND and modify other things, which should make the dock compatible with BSD again. (thanks to Max Power)
      • Removed the need for pangox (deprecated)

  • Plug-ins
    • New applets and plugins:
      • Indicator-Generic: new applet!
        • A plugin to hold all your 'indicators' applets. Simply enable it and it will load all your installed indicators. You can define a blacklist to not load some indicators.
        • It replaces Sync-Menu and Printers-Menu applets
      • Screenshot: new applet!
        • fast, clean, and with no useless effect or sound...
    • Application Menu (GMenu):
      • Support the new version of Gnome-Menu (libgnome-menu-3.0) if available
      • Avoid freeze at startup by preloading the menu and the icons in a separated thread
      • Also support 'menulibre' to edit menus
    • Clock:
      • Update the icon with the correct time when the session has just returned from suspend or hibernate.
      • Resync with the correct second when the previous signal is received.
      • Fixed a few bugs with ICS file support
    • DBus:
      • Remaned cairo-dock-unity-bridge to cairo-dock-launcher-API-daemon: This script is not really a bridge but it replaces the Unity Launcher API daemon. Unity is not required, if an application supports the Unity Launcher API, the dock should act as "Unity's dock".
      • Install python interfaces for both python2 and 3
    • Desklet rendering:
      • Modified the clear and dark themes (smaller corners) and added a few more themes
    • Dock rendering:
      • Views: 3D and Curve: maximize the window size to avoid resizing and jerking of the dock.
    • GVFS integration:
      • Can now mount encrypted volumes that demand password
      • Hidden files were not correctly handled
      • Handle smb share folders and other exotic mount points
      • Removed a few small memory leaks
    • Keyboard Indicator:
      • rewritten xklavier part to improve support of non gnome DE.
    • Logout:

      • Added support for Systemd, for reboot and shutdown
    • Messaging Menu:
      • Used Indicator3 if it's available (should be better)
    • MusicPlayer:
      • Improved the content of the notifications
    • Netspeed:
      • If no interface is set in the config panel (default settings), monitor all interfaces (except loopback)
    • Notes-taking:
      • allow the applet to work without tomboy/gnote
    • Python scripts:
      • should now support both python 2 and 3
    • Quick-Browser:
      • Added a right click menu: Open With / Copy Location / Open the parent folder
    • Recent-Events:
      • Toolbar: use an inline style with transparent borders
      • Open With menu: used the correct size for the image
    • Shortcuts:
      • Handle network bookmarks (like FTP, even with password)
      • Correctly see mounted/unmounted bookmarks
    • ShowDesktop:
      • Gnome-Shell workaround: add a small delay before triggering the desktop Exposé or Gnome-Shell will not respond
    • Sound-effects: new plugin!
      • add sounds to various events in the dock
    • SoundMenu:
      • Used Indicator3 to load the menu if it's available (should be better)
    • Status-Notifier:
      • Force menu to be inside of the current screen
    • Switcher:

I've written an article for the various tech blogs, it's a framapad here: http://lite.framapad.org/p/frj4SOWnyC

Feel free to edit, and propose any blog where we could send it

@Matttbe: I've incorporated your additions in the article (the end was a bit redundant and the paypal link didn't work).

No, I'm not a "Trusted User" down there So it's now another user that will take care of that.
