gDesklets is a system for bringing mini programs (desklets), such as weather forecasts, news tickers, system information displays, or music player controls, onto your desktop, where they are sitting there in a symbiotic relationship of eye candy and usefulness. The possibilities are really endless and they are always there to serve you whenever you need them, just one key-press away. The system is not restricted to one desktop environment, but currently works on most of the modern Unix desktops (including GNOME, KDE, Xfce).
sorry, for the delay...but now, you can check out the new beta of v0.36. Please test it intensively and report as many bugs as possible at http://bugs.launchpad.net.
Thanks for your patience, we know that you're waiting for it :-)
P.S. You can download it from http://students.fim.uni-passau.de/~meyerc/gDesklets/ for now. We're having some server problems at the moment.
The next beta release of our 0.3x series will be out in a week. Lots of bugs have been fixed and for the first time there's real (Open)Solaris support. We'd like to thank Sun for their help and support.
A final 0.36 should be out 14 days later. The new shell won't be included but we'll add it later, in 0.36.1 or 0.36.2.
Due to some changed server settings we are experiencing problems with uploading and thus desklet and control submissions don't work for the time being. This issue will be fixed as soon as possible, meaning that it should work by the end of next week. I take it back. Everything works again :) .
Another nice IRC meeting took place at the usual location. This time, we covered the
We basically agreed on just porting the core to the new architecture and add new features later (which will be likely in v0.41 and v0.42). Read more about the meeting here.
Hey gDesklets lovers ;-)
We'll have another IRC meeting next Sunday (8th July) at 21.00 CEST (UTC+2). It will cover The Road to v0.40, since we were really busy last Sunday with the current status of v0.35.
We hope to get as many people on irc as we did on 1st July. So, if you are great gDesklets fan and want to be part of our ongoing efforts to make gDesklets more attractive again, you're welcome at irc://irc.gnome.org#gdesklets.
