Noteworthy changes 21 december â 31 december 2009

| In spite of the holiday season, lots of
| new packages continue to trickle in
| Mandriva Cooker. Amongst the many updates,
| here is an overview of some important
| changes:
|     * GNOME is now updated toversion
|     2.29.4: The most important changes are
|     in Nautilus. In preparation of GNOME
|     3.0, where Nautilus will purely be a
|     file browser and wonât provide the
|     desktop anymore, the file management
|     part has been improved a lot. Upstream
|     is now using browser mode by default
|     (this was already the case in
|     Mandriva) and made several UI
|     improvements for it. The developers
|     have added now an optional split view
|     like Midnight Commander. Another
|     useful change is that itâs now
|     possible in GNOME to configure a
|     background per monitor on a multi-
|     monitor setup in GNOME. Also worth
|     mentioning is the fast progress the
|     Tracker document search engine is
|     making since some time. I would
|     recommend removing Beagle from your
|     Cooker system, and switching to
|     Tracker instead. Then by clicking on
|     the Search button in Nautilusâ
|     toolbar, you can easily search your
|     files.
|     * KDE has been updated to the latest
|     beta, which is version 4.4 beta 2.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
