After spending the last three months on refactoring Deskbar I found some time to update my modules to the new API. I had to remove the dict.leo.org module, because of Copyright restrictions. Sorry. Secondly, I updated the ekiga module as well. If your query starts with ‘sip:’ you will see a match that, when activated, will call the address you entered with ekiga. Finally, I wrote a new module. It makes use of Google Suggest and just like the live search feature in Firefox the module will contact Google to suggest search terms to you. It requires the simplejson Python module. To install this module you have to put google.png in /usr/share/deskbar-applet/art. To install a module just extract the archive and put the Python file in the ~/.gnome2/deskbar-applet/modules-2.20-compatible directory.
