Noteworthy Cooker changes Jan 1 – 17

Filed under
MDV

The first two weeks of 2010 have passed, and the first alpha version of Mandriva 2010.1 has been released last week. Here are some of the interesting changes currently available in Cooker:

* GNOME has been upgraded to the new development release 2.29.5. The Cheese webcam application has been split into different libraries, making it easier for other applications to integrate webcam functionality (like avatar choosers in instant messaging applications). Epiphany now uses an infobar to ask the user for saving website username and password and stores them in the GNOME keyring. Thanks to the new Content-Encoding support in Libsoup and Webkitgtk, Epiphany is now capable of correctly rendering web pages which send GZIP compressed pages.

* KDE 4.4 RC 1 is now available in Cooker. Mandriva has patched the kmix volume mixer to support Pulseaudio. Amarok 2.2.2
