A new bug-fix version has been released for the 3.2 series! (v 3.2.1)

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. Our Fedora repository will be updated asap!)

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

Detailed ChangeLog
Core
By Fabounet (Fabrice Rey) & Matttbe (Matthieu Baerts)
  • Dialogues:
    • Fixed a small bug with the default icon
    • Force to take the focus when the dialogue has a user widget, since some WM prevent focus steal
  • Gnome-Shell: the dash was hidden all the time
  • GUI:
    • Docks list: only list main docks and subdocks and not launchers and applications with subdocks (when there are windows with the same class and if these icons are regrouped into a subdock)
    • Menu and GUI: Move to another dock: if it's a container: Do not add subdocks that are contained in this container (to avoid loop: subdock1->subdock2->subdock1)
    • Simple: Plugins: 'Help' applet was not listed
    • Simple: Config: force to display the config widget (the config panel was empty with some older versions of GTK)
  • Help applet: This applet didn't have any preview icon file
  • Icon:
    • Label: If we don't want to show label, keep info about the font: it can be used by other applets (e.g. Clock)
    • Windows thumbnails: fixed a small bug that made the thumbnail unavailable the first time the window is minimized
  • Init & Themes: deactivate the option 'Show Windows Thumbnail' in the current theme.
    • This option can provoke annoying bugs with other applications the desktop (e.g. Gedit or Nautilus displayed corrupted icons when using a smooth scroll)
    • It seems this bug is due to the video drivers and it's fixed with the latest stable version of these drivers (but which is not available with most distributions)
    • Note: It's still possible to re-enable this option from the config panel
  • Taskbar: Fixed a possible crash in a convoluted scenario (if there are a few untitled windows with the same empty class)
  • X11:
    • Fixed a crash when using Xinerama with multi-monitors
  • Translations: Imported translations files from Launchpad: thanks to all contributors

Plugins
By Fabounet (Fabrice Rey) & Matttbe (Matthieu Baerts)
  • DBus:
    • Python interface: Translations: avoid blank dialogues when using special characters from .mo files with Python2.
    • Force the height of the menu, since GTK doesn't update it correctly
  • GMenu: Preload icons at startup: removed this option: it's no longer needed when using libgnome-menu-3 and it can slow down the creation of this menu
  • Indicator-Generic:
    • If no indicator found, stay in the plugin mode to not create an useless icon
    • New indicators was not automatically launched: Monitor the indicator3 dir in order to reload indicators when these files are modified/added/removed
    • Do not insert or detach icons if it's not necessary
  • Translations: Imported translations files from Launchpad: thanks to all contributors

Extras (third-party applets)
By Fabounet (Fabrice Rey) & Matttbe (Matthieu Baerts)
  • Deluge: A menu entry to quit the application was missing
  • Gmail:
    • Make base64 work with python3
    • Handle messages with no subject
    • Updated the config file and removed an unused option
  • Pidgin/Xchat: fixed a wrong option type ('animation type' is an integer)
  • Screensaver Inhibitor: FreeDesktop: support both newer and older object path
  • Transmission:
    • A menu entry to quit the application was missing
    • urllib requires UTF-8 in python3
  • Translations: Imported translations files from Launchpad (added Basque): thanks to all contributors
