I am happy to announce that I have finally at long last made a new feature release of Whisker Menu, version 1.6.0! There aren’t a whole lot of new features, but that is because the menu is pretty much complete at this point. Some of the features have been sitting in git for quite a long time now (oops), like the ability to navigate categories using the arrow keys. Another new feature is the option to show tooltips on the application launchers. I also tweaked the search results to put results from favorites and recent before the rest.
I have also released version 2.0.0, which is a like-for-like port to GTK+ 3. There are no new features, just the requisite code changes to support a newer version of GTK+. I have been using the GTK+ 3 port for a while now, and for me it works just fine. It may be a while before users have it, though, because the dependencies are very new. I’m also not going to maintain backported libraries, so I will still be building GTK+ 2 packages for now.
If you have any issues, please report them. I cannot fix bugs that I do not know about. Anyway, enjoy the updated menu!
