The gladeui autodetection has been improved and the premature expansion of the catalogdir variable is now avoided. Furthermore, it is now possible to explicitely specify the path at configure time, skipping the gladeui autodetection.
The build system gracefully support the --as-needed linker flag and has been improved to support "make distcheck" without errors.
gtk2panel now has a --version argument so automake compatibility level can be raised to gnits.
The panel does not depend anymore on libglade: all the UI has been moved to GtkBuilder and glade-3.6.
All the additional applets, previously hardcoded as custom widgets in libglade, have been rewrote practically from scratch as self-contained widgets. To be able to access them from glade-3, the code has been moved in its own shared library, libgpwidgets. This library can be seen and used outside gtk2panel; it is basically a collection of GtkWidgets.
Glade now supported: this means the panel can be designed by adding and configuring widgets using glade-3.
The build system changed deeply to not hardcode any dependency: only Gtk+2 is required. libwnck related widgets can disabled from configure (and the glade support too).
A minor release with no user visible changes: it has been tagged mainly for its pre-bigjump nature.
The development has been moved from my local repository to sourceforge, hence making it the first public accessible code. A skeleton libgpsystem has been added, still not used though. The code has been refactored and estetically rearranged. Last but not least, jdred joined the project.
The issues of the 0.0.1 release have been solved: now the maximization works as expected and the panel is not overlapped by other windows. The problem was a wrong use of struts: now they are working properly, at least with OroboROX and openbox.
This "release" (a kind of, as also gtk2panel-0.0.2 was never released as tarball) is by far the most tested, as I succesfully used it on a daily basis for more than one year (tested on slackware and slamd64).
This is the first non-release: it was kept in a subversion repository and it has been never released as tarball. It is functionally working but with some issues, most notably does not avoid the overlapping of other windows over the panel and the maximization does not consider the panel height.
