Weekly Summary

  • New Unity Greeter with a fix for visual corruption while loading desktop (mterry)
  • Fixed a data corruption issue in duplicity, SRUs pending (mterry)
  • Merged GwibberGtkEntry and related widgets into friends as FriendsGtkEntry (kenvandine)

  • Lots of API updates for libfriends, finalizing API before landing in raring (kenvandine)
  • Created cups-browsed, a daemon which browses the Bonjour broadcasts of shareed CUPS printers on remote machines and creating local CUPS queues pointing to these printers, replacing the former CUPS broadcasting/browsing. So remote CUPS printers are simply available again, without individual configuration. Part of cups-filters 1.0.28, packaged for Raring (tkamppeter).
  • CUPS: Dropped forward-port patch of CUPS broadcastingf/browsing in Raring, not needed any more due to cups-browsed (tkamppeter).
  • CUPS: Split CUPS daemon off into an extra binary package, so for mobile systems one can use a 1-MB printing stack of cups-daemon, libcups2, and cups-browsed, to only get remote CUPS printers automatically and print on them, all the rest of the printing stack is for local printers with drivers (tkamppeter).
  • Updated to latest orca release, and adjusted ubiquity and unity-greeter to not use command-line flags that Orca no longer supports. (TheMuso)

  • Started debugging non-working audio on nexus7, at least via the speaker, am yet to try headphones. (TheMuso)

  • Starting to put all necessary stuff together for the testing of PulseAudio 3.0 by QA/community. (TheMuso)


  • Insert things to discuss at meeting here..

Product strategy integration

  • Continue and hopefully soon finishing merging latest components to have inlined packaging and tests running.


  • Fixed some regressions happening, trying to get a new release ASAP. But need integrations tests to run in the indicator stack without failures before being able to do so.
