Whisker Menu 2.4.0 Released

I am happy to announce a new Whisker Menu feature release! And this one turned out to be a lot bigger than I was expecting, as the menu has been pretty much done for years. Once I got my hands dirty working with the code, though, I couldn’t stop myself. 😉

What’s New?

Icon View

The most obvious change is the addition of a mode to show the applications as a grid of icons. And a brand-new default layout to go with it! Don’t worry, it won’t override your current settings. This will only be what new instances of the menu look like (assuming your distro hasn’t overridden the defaults). And you can easily change it to a list view or tree view instead of an icon view.

Settings Dialog Tweaks

Not a whole lot has actually changed in the settings dialog, but I did make it easier to find all of the appearance settings. For example, the confusingly named “Show menu hierarchy” has been renamed as the more logical “Show as tree.” I also split the panel button to a new tab again, because otherwise the first tab of settings was too massive. The rest of the tabs are the same as before.

Miscellaneous

There were a lot of other code changes, but mostly it was minor features like the addition of searching the keywords in desktop files, or the ability to hide applications you don’t want showing up in the menu, or making the panel button not be a big square on panels with multiple rows. And if you have enabled switching category by hovering the mouse, it now switches categories when you select them with the keyboard. Beyond that was a lot of code cleanup behind the scenes, including a rewrite of the menu load logic to match the regular Xfce applications menu.

Enjoy! And please report any bugs you find.

FocusWriter 1.7.0 released

I have released a new version of FocusWriter, version 1.7.0. There aren’t a lot of changes, but I bumped the version number for a couple of reasons. First, I did add a few minor features. Second, I have now switched to 64-bit binaries for Windows and I wanted to make that clear with a full version bump. Go forth and enjoy!

Bundle of updates

I was planning on following the new format for the release announcements, but since almost every single app has the same changes, it would be quite repetitive. I updated basically every single program to have better installers on Windows and the Mac, and fixed the compile process to not have extra warnings during release builds.

The important thing is that I updated to Qt 5.11, and this means that FocusWriter should be able to save to Dropbox! I say should because the bug report is closed as fixed, but I don’t use Dropbox so I can’t test for myself. Enjoy!
