API Freeze (finally)
After pushing back API freeze twice (or was it three times…), we finally have a frozen API. This is great and I feel a sense of accomplishment with this release. Murray has done a great job with this release and helped me through my mistakes with some of the new API, but I guess he’s glad I helped. I’m kind of disappointed we couldn’t get the STL API working for Gtk::Toolbar, but I think the new API is better (I hope that’s not a sin to say that).
The other huge thing we accomplished was the move to libsigc++2. The syntax is cleaner and easier to use.
Vfsmm turned out pretty spiffy as well. The Volume, Drive, and VolumeMonitor idea is awesome and I can’t wait to see what the developers have in store for GNOME 2.6.
