Weekly Summary

  • Reported bugs on both GTK and Qt print dialogs to add Bonjour browsing, as upstream design of CUPS 1.6.x is the CUPS daemon to do Bonjour broadcasting of shared printers and the print dialog browsing Bonjour broadcasts of printers in the network. GTK dialog upstream maintainer Marek Kasik accepted the bug and raised it to high priority (tkamppeter).
  • Made a good start on implementing touch support in Orca, unfortunately there has been no movement on upstream discussion with unity/GNOME devs with regards to handling assistive technologies and desktops like unity that want to offer gestures. (TheMuso)

  • With help from the geis maintainers, got the python bindings of geis ported to python 3. (TheMuso)
