2015-04-07 -
- Disable strict build failing: this is generally enabled for the
developers, not for users.
2014-12-25 -
- Update to version 0.3.0+git20140619
+ No changelog available
- Replace pkgconfig(gstreamer-0.10) and pkgconfig(gstreamer-app-0.10)
with pkgconfig(gstreamer-1.0) and pkgconfig(gstreamer-plugins-base-1.0)
- Replace pkgconfig(x11) with pkgconfig(xdamage)
- BuildRequire perl(XML::Parser) and gettext-devel; new dependencies
- Build unconditionnally against gtk3 and glib2
- Replace %gconf_schemas_prereq with %glib2_gsettings_schema_requires
and remove gconf2-devel dependency; upstream dropped gconf2 dependency
- Remove obsolete patches
+ byzanz-gnome3.patch
+ byzanz-own-datadir.patch
+ byzanz-gnome-3.3.patch
+ byzanz-make-panel-optional.patch
2013-08-21 -
- Add byzanz-make-panel-optional.patch: make building the panel
applet optional.
- Introduce build_applet defines (true for openSUSE < 13.1). If
evaluated to true, this results in:
+ enabled pkgconfig(libpanelapplet-4.0) BuildRequires.
+ conditional addition of panel-applet related files entries.
- Move call to %build section.
- Replace gconf2 BuildRequires with gconf2-devel: it's what we
actually require. When building the panel applet, this was
indirectly pulled in.
2012-01-06 -
- Add byzanz-gnome-3.3.patch: fix use of deprecated APIs in recent
versions of glib and gtk+. We only apply this patch on 12.2 and
later, since it's only needed there and require a recent version
of glib.
- Tweak byzanz-gnome3.patch so that we don't set NANO in
AS_VERSION() to 1: this enables us to avoid using -Werror, and
this fixes the build on Factory.
2011-09-17 -
- Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile
- Use %_smp_mflags for parallel build
2011-07-07 -
- Correctly use "!%favor_gtk2": it has to be "!(0%{?favor_gtk2})",
since %favor_gtk2 will expand to a complex expression.
- Add byzanz-own-datadir.patch to move the menu definition to a non
GNOME 2 directory. This fixes the build on Factory since we will
own this new directory which is byzanz-specific.
2011-06-23 -
- Do not call configure in %prep phase.
2011-05-31 -
- Use favor_gtk2 to switch between gtk2 and gtk3 builds.
- Add byzanz-gnome3.patch: ports the applet to GNOME 3, to fix
build in Factory. Only apply if favor_gtk2 is not set, and call in that case, with a gnome-common BuildRequires.
- For gtk3 build, move to pkgconfig()-style and GNOME 3
+ Old ones: gtk2-devel, gnome-panel-devel,
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base-devel, xorg-x11-devel.
+ New ones: cairo, gio-2.0, gstreamer-0.10, gstreamer-app-0.10,
gtk+-3.0, libpanelapplet-4.0, x11.
2011-03-21 -
- Update to version 0.2.3:
+ Features:
- WebM support
- Updated translations
+ Bugfixes:
- Fix compile on 64bit machines.
2011-02-12 -
- Call relevant macros in %post/%postun:
+ %icon_theme_cache_post/postun because the package ships themed
- Pass %{?no_lang_C} to %find_lang so that english documentation
can be packaged with the program, and not in the lang subpackage.
- Change Requires of lang subpackage to Recommends, since the
english documentation is not there anymore.
