Released version 0.34.1. This version represents an important overhaul of glunarclock internals to get it up-to-date with the current Gnome development framework and get rid of deprecated code. It also includes the latest po files from The Translation Project. Big thanks go to our two new project members for getting this release done so quickly!
Glunarclock has a new Chief Developer, Christine Spang, and a new Project Manager & Release Technician, Jon Ciesla. Welcome aboard!
Glunarclock is looking for a new maintainer! If would like to do this, please contact me!
Released version 0.32.4 This version includes the latest translations from the translation project and a small bug fix.
Released version 0.32.3 This version includes the latest translations from the translation project and a small bug fix.
Released version 0.32.2. This version includes the latest translations from the translation project. Now displays number of days until next full moon. There's also a new logo icon.
Andreas Nilsson has designed this cool website for the GNOME Lunar Clock project. Thanks Andreas!
Released version 0.32.1. This version includes the latest translations from the translation project. Moon data now updated per second, and data shown with more decimal places, so you can 'see' how the moon is constantly moving, though the data certainly isn't accurate to the precision shown.
Released version 0.30.3. This version includes the latest translations from the translation project. New translations are included for the ast_ES fi ms nl ro and sr locales and older translations have been updated.
Dag Wieers has packaged glunarclock for redhat 9. You can download his package here. Thanks Dag!
Don't know how long it's been there, but the Debian package of glunarclock finally made it to 'testing' so it looks like we'll be in the next Debian distribution. Huraah.
Released version 0.30.2. This includes a bugfix for southern latitudes in versions 0.30.1 or 0.30.pre2a, so please upgrade.
The official debian package of glunarclock is now in sid on the debian servers. Thanks go to Yoshito Komatsu for doing the packaging!
Released version 0.30.pre2b. glunarclock 0.30.pre2b is bug fix release. During the port to GNOME 2.2, a minus sign was lost and the moon data for southern latitudes was being calculated as if they were northern latitudes. Also, the glunarclock logo in the about box was lost in 0.30.pre2a.
Released version 0.30.pre2a. glunarclock 0.30.pre2a has some minor cosmetic improvements over 0.30.1. I've also included an inofficial debian package in this release.
Note that as of version 0.30.1 glunarclock depends on gtk2.0 version 2.1.0 or higher, so Red Hat 8.0 users must upgrade gtk (and it's dependencies) to use it.
Released version 0.30.1. glunarclock 0.30.1 is a new implementation of glunarclock for the GNOME 2.2 Desktop. There is tarball available for immediate download. A new Debian Package should be available on the Debian servers soon.
glunarclock 0.24.1 was removed from Debian sid today since one of it's dependencies from the old GNOME 1.4 Desktop was removed. There will be a new Debian package for glunarclock soon after the port to the GNOME 2 Desktop is completed.
Well, the official Debian package for glunarclock wasn't in time to be included in the new stable release of Debian, but all it's dependencies are. So whether you're running Woody (stable), Sarge (testing), or Sid (unstable), you can install the official debian package of glunarclock with apt-get; if you're running Woody, you'll just have to change your /etc/apt/sources.list temporarily to include either Sarge or Sid. Note that the official package is available for all architectures which debian supports, not just i386.
There is now an official Debian package of glunarclock. The new deb was compiled on and added to the 'Sid' version of Debian, so if you're running Sid, you can just apt-get glunarclock. Woody users, please continue to use the inofficial Debian package mentioned in `Downloading'. Big Thanks go to Debian Maintainer Yoshito Komatsu for doing the packaging!
Released version 0.24.0. glunarclock version 0.24.0 is scrollkeeper and nautilus compliant. New translations are included for az, da, es, gl, ja, no, vi, and wa. Latest gimmick: the moon image is now highlighted on mouse-over just like panel launchers.
Released version 0.22.3. This is a bug fix release which fixes the pixmap theme problem.
Glunarclock has a bug which makes it crash when you're using a pixmap theme. This was introduced in version 0.20. Version 0.22.3 will be a bug fix for this problem and will be released as soon as possible. Big Thanks go to Goeren Weinholt for discovering the connection between the mysterious crashes (which I had never been able to reproduce) an pixmap themes (which I had never used.)
Released version 0.22.2: This release fixes the incorrect image links in the Gnome Lunar Clock help page in version 0.22.1.
Released version 0.22.1 which includes an improved moon image file that a) better depicts the moon especially at the beginning and end of the cycle; and b) is 100Kb smaller!
Released version 0.22. This includes a bug fix for displaying the local sidereal time correctly. User visible is the selection of north or south for latitude and of east or west for longitude is now done with radio buttons to avoid user confusion over the sign convention. The deb was compiled on potato running Ximian GNOME and the rpm on Red Hat 7.0 also running Ximian, so if you're running a pure Debian potato (i.e. GNOME version 1.01 or so) or an older Red Hat system, you'll probably need to build your own deb, rpm or binary from the source (see the `Installing' section.)
Released version 0.20. There is now detailed documentation included in the form of a GNOME help entry. Access help by right clicking on the applet and selecting `Help.' The applet is now sensitive to different panel background types, including background pixmaps. Image quality has drastically improved due to conversion of the rendering routines from Imlib to GdkPixbuf. Also, on screen sizes with a height less than 768 pixels the moon data box automatically chooses a 4x4 format which fits better on small screens. The deb was compiled against the latest Ximian GNOME version 1.2.11,and the rpm on Red Hat 7.0 also running Ximian, so if you're on a pure Debian potato (i.e. GNOME version 1.01 or so) or an older Red Hat system, you'll need to build your own deb, rpm or binary from the source (see the `Installing' section.)
Released version 0.12. There's a bug fix for the case where the moon doesn't rise or set on a particular day, and the moon image is now automatically rescaled according to panel size. You need a current version (>= 1.2) of GNOME for resizing to work. The deb was compiled against Helix GNOME version 1.2.8, and the rpm on Red Hat 7.0 with Helix, so if you're on a pure Debian potato (i.e. GNOME version 1.01 or so) or an older Red Hat system, you'll need to build your own deb, rpm or binary from the source (see the `Installing' section.)
Released version 0.11 with two important bug fixes. If you've been using the cartoon moon file, you'll need to reset the number of frames to 12 after installing the new version.
Released version 0.1, the initial release.
