Actions from this meeting

Weekly Summary

  • Ghostscript: Worked out important printing-related bugs with the upstram developers, especially segmentations and wrong color output on HP printers (TillKamppeter)

  • Updated Gutenprint to have "-dNOINTERPOLATE" in the Ghostscript command line (TillKamppeter)

  • Updated HPLIP to version 3.11.7 (TillKamppeter)

  • Updated system-config-printer to version 1.3.5. Now it contains a D-Bus service through which all its algorithmic parts (driver selection, correct listing of detected printers, ...) can be used by other printer setup tools like the tool of GNOME 3, g-c-c upstream is already making use of this, see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=654742 (TillKamppeter)

  • OneConf 0.2 is released. Compatible with current gtk2 software-center, removing desktopcouch and compatible with (to enter beta staging server next week) ubuntu-webcatalog. (didrocks)

  • Removed the recommends between cifsutils and winbind, won 4 MB on the CD (didrocks)

Partner update


  • Nothing before a3


  • shim is being worked on, planned to land in time for feature freeze
  • sounds like they will drop support for rhythmbox in oneiric to preventing support libubuntuone for both gtk2 and gtk3


  • Unity:
    • we get an unity release yesterday late (libunity-misc/nux/unity), giving the needed infrastructure for next week release for latest incoming features.
    • This version broughts some nice contributors fixes as well: https://launchpad.net/unity/4.0/4.6.0

    • There is still known regression or mouse and keyboard events. Not planned to be fixed until feature freeze though
    • A last minute upload in nux, making it crashing on some intel card is in progress. Next respin will take it (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nux/+bug/819739)

  • Compiz:
    • No tested compiz release went out from dx, so no gsettings backend ready for now. We reverted the unity dialog reverting light-themes, removing the unitydialogs plugin and reverted from unity-window-decorator to gtk-window-decorator to workaround the slowliness some people were getting. All of that for alpha3 being more testable. Hoping next release after alpha3 to bring the gsettings backend by default.
  • Unity-2d:

Software Center

  • Software Center version 4.1.11 released, includes:
    • New top-rated panels for category views (Games, Internet, etc.), many thanks to Aaron Peachey
    • Continued progress in the GTK3 version
    • Many bug fixes
  • This week:
    • More 5.0 features for the default branch, GTK3 work continues
