At long last, 0.5.0!
April 21, 2006 at 09:09 AM

It's been a long time since the last release, and a lot of work has been done during that time. Finally, after about 9 months, the new 0.5.0 releases of the Galago components are out! There have been a number of API changes made, stability improvements, memory leak fixes, Python bindings, a move to glib for libgalago, and on and on. There are so many changes that I can't list them all in this post. See the release note links below.

There was a casualty in this release. gnome-presence-applet has not been fully upgraded to work with the new releases. It is my intention that this applet will be either scrapped or rewritten to actually be useful to more people. Also, in time, there will be Deskbar support, so there's something to look forward to.

I want to thank Jorn Baayen and Ross Burton for all their contributions in the forms of bug reports, patches, and discussions, and Ricardo Kekki for his documentation contributions. I also want to thank the various people with whom I have bounced ideas around, those who have submitted bug reports, and everyone else for just being patient during this very long development cycle.
