Bug Description

Binary package hint: cairo-dock-plug-ins

The Karmic release (2.0.9) is no longer maintained. This branch (2.1.x) brings several improvements, removes deprecated plug-ins, and fixes a huge amount of bugs.

It has a much better support of ATI and Intel graphic cards, which was very incomplete before (the dock runs with OpenGL).
It also brings a user-friendly configuration panel.
The code has been cleant and several critical crashes have been fixed.
It also switches from wget to curl, in order to connect to the themes server (a bug in wget prevents the dock from loading any theme in Karmic).
It also brings a brand new DBus API, which makes posible to write plug-ins in any languages (several applets have already been written with this API, they will only work with the 2.1.3 or above)

Many bugs have been fixed, here is a short list of the most important ones :

- fixed an ennoying bug that prevents the dock from hiding anymore
- better crash handler : applets that crash are detected ad don't make the whole dock crash endlessly
- prevent dialogs to appear when a fullscreen window is masking the dock
- fixed a bug that added extra separators
- fixed a bug when changing the resolution
- use threads to prevent the dock from freezing for several seconds
- support for indirect rendering
- fixed a bug in cairo_dock_set_new_dialog_icon_surface() that could make the dock crash when an applicati
- on whose icon is not inside the dock demands attention
- fixed a crash when activating the mix between applis and launchers when some sub-docks are present
- translations update
- removed mesages in x-error-session
- ...

The branch lp:ubuntu/cairo-dock-plug-ins is ready to be uploaded (it has been already reviewed by an Ubuntu packager (Didrocks)).

REM : Please update cairo-dock AND cairo-dock-plug-ins (LP: #521534 )

(just to precise that Cairo-Dock Plug-ins is depended of the same version of 'Cairo-Dock' (core) in order to compile without any error... AND that Cairo-Dock (core) can't work correctly without its plug-ins (with the same version of course))

Thanks for your support !
