tickr (0.6.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Add: 'quick setup' thing (in tickr_quicksetup.c) which is launched
at program startup if config file doesn't exist.
* Little improvements in layout of 'feed picker win' and 'preferences
* Fix a segfault that happens when trying to export params and no
config file exists yet.
* Make several windows that should not be resized by user, unresizable.
* Fix Launchpad bug #1007346: When 'window always-on-top' is disabled,
'visible on all user desktops' stops working.
* If mouse wheel scrolling applies to speed (or feed), then Ctrl +
mouse wheel scrolling applies to feed (or speed.)
* No real code changes in libetm, only in comments, so no need for a
new version number.
* Update tickr_helptext.c and tickr.1 (man page.)
* Add new cli option 'no-ui' (similar to 'instance-id') used by new
IF_UI_ALLOWED macro and remove all #if USE_GUI occurences.
* In tickr_list.c, free listfname before using it. Fixed by swapping 2
warning(FALSE, 4, "Can't save URL list ", listfname, ...);
* Use/add #define
to replace a few 'magic' numeric values.
* Rename: rss_title/description(_delimiter) ->
then add new param: feed_title(_delimiter). Now we have:
feed title / item title / item description.
* Use table in resource properties window.
* Fix a bug in f_list_load_from_file() in tickr_list.c which
uncorrectly retrieves any feed title string containing TITLE_TAG_CHAR
when TITLE_TAG_CHAR has not been removed from string first, for
instance: 'NYT > World' -> ' World'.
* New param: disable left-click.
* Add 'check for updates' feature.
* Launch 'import OPML file' if feed list doesn't exist.
* Remove code changing get_params()->disable_popups value in
macros which prevents this setting to be saved and add
new macros. Which ones to use depends on context.
* Move:
#ifdef G_OS_WIN32
extern FILE	*stdout_fp, *stderr_fp;
from *.c into tickr.h.
* Default always-on-top setting changed to 'n' (so that tickr is not
intrusive by default.)
