New addition to awn-core

Just a quick welcome of onox to awn-core. Onox has long been a fixture in extras with many applets and extensive work on awnlib. Onox initially will be applying those skills to Awn Setting, followed, we're sure, by other interesting contributions.

Live previews in awn taskmanager

A WIP. After many months I finally got around to doing some work on this recently.

As an additional note... I'm looking for work - eastern Ontario, western Quebec, Canada - any leads are appreciated.

Context Menus Can be Fun!

Just a quick screencast of the XML based context menus. You can define the menu if you want.

Awn-testing packages and Cairo-menu rewrite

So as you may be aware the awn-testing ppa is now providing packages based on rewrite code. Note that this does not mean that we've merged rewrite into trunk quite yet. We haven't been flooded with bug reports yet, I'm not really sure if that's a good or a bad thing.

I've been doing some work on the cairo-menu rewrite. Just working on getting the gnome menu up and running properly at the moment. Note the startup notification support (which I added in at the same time as I was doing it for Taskmanager) I will also be adding a xfce menu option (it will be possible to switch menu library at runtime). Beyond this, I also intend to have a custom rendering mode for menus that will override the standard gtk menu appearance... I suspect this is going to cause me massive headaches.

Anyway, here's a screencast. For some reason gtk-record-my-desktop has become gtk-record-a-slideshow... so I had to use xvidcap, the results are acceptable, but not great.
