status: week ending 3/5/2008

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

This week was an ok bug-fixing week. I worked on:

  • Bug 9644: implemented a preference allowing you to switch between renderers on GTKX11--it's not great, but it's good enough (probably).

  • Bug 3067: applied a patch for suspending the screensaver when playing video in fullscreen on GTKX11... then I found a couple of problems with it and backed it out today.

  • Fixed a bunch of other bugs related to gstreamer renderer, ff/rew, revver, mefeedia, ...

  • Worked on bug 9214 where if you click on the delete link when viewing a video in fullscreen on GTKX11, then you're stuck in fullscreen. I worked on it for a couple of days and ended up giving up today.

  • Sent out a proposed tentative release schedule for Miro 1.2 to the develop mailing list.

  • Helped with some of the initial GSoC preparation.

Next week I'm going to:

  • Bug 9692. Check out Fabien's patches for Ubuntu that get Miro to work with xulrunner 1.9.

  • Bug 9691. Look into Miro compiling with gcc 4.3. Uwe said something that suggested that gcc 4.3 on Debian is imminent. So... this needs to be figured out.

  • Continue to shepherd Miro 1.2 until it's out the door.

Busy busy busy....
