- Update to version 3.30.0:
+ A few small improvements.
+ Updated translations.
2018-06-19 -
- Update to version 3.29.3:
+ Finally write a HACKING file.
+ Do not show a GtkInfoBar on error, use the WebKitWebView
default implementation to simplify the code.
+ Code refactorings: from DhWindow extract DhNotebook,
DhSearchBar and bind_sidebar_and_notebook() function, and
delegate more work to DhWebView.
+ Make the following classes re-usable and move them to the
libdevhelp: DhWebView, DhTab, DhTabLabel, DhNotebook and
+ And move dh_window_bind_sidebar_and_notebook() to the
+ Flatpak: run Amtk and Devhelp unit tests after building those
+ Application icons: rename filenames to org.gnome.Devhelp.*, to
simplify the Flatpak manifest.
+ Build system: fix the remaining places where the libdevhelp
API/major version was hardcoded, use the variable instead, to
easily bump it in the future.
+ Other small improvements.
+ Updated translations.
- Drop la files rm'ing, not needed as we are using meson
- Pass flatpak_build=false to meson, ensure we build the features
we want/need, currently following upstream defaults.

+ Add a profile infrastructure in the library, for example to
have a generic profile and a GNOME profile in the future.

+ Use the Amtk library to create the menus and the GtkShortcuts\
Window. It permits to avoid information duplication, and will
permit to provide a higher-level libdevhelp API.
+ A few other small improvements.
+ Updated translations.
- Add:
+ meson BuildRequires and replace configure/make/make_install
macros/command with meson/meson_build/meson_install, following
upstream port to Meson build system.
+ gtk-doc and pass gtk_doc option to meson as true now that
pre-build documentation are not found anymore into the tarball.

2018-03-28 -
- Add Requires: devhelp for vim, emac and gedit plugins as these
plugins, which are supposed to pop up the devhelp window to
search for the selected word/phrase, don't work otherwise.
2018-03-20 -
- Unconditionally enable translation-update-upstream: on
Tumbleweed, this results in a NOP and for Leap in SLE paid
translations being used (boo#1086036).
