Deskbar-Applet goes stable

I'm proud to announce the first stable release in the GNOME 2.20 release cycle.

It's a very special release for me, because it includes all of my work done during this year's Google Summer of Code. The most notable features are:

  • New GUI that replaces the old Button and Entry UI
  • New modules/handlers API offering the possibility to add more than one action to a match. Matches with more than one action have a '>' on the right. Activating it will display the list of actions.
  • Complete refactoring of the code
  • Polished preferences dialog

Be aware that old handlers won't work with this version of Deskbar-Applet anymore. If you want to write modules for Deskbar-Applet 2.20 check out Writing new-style modules for Deskbar-Applet.

Thanks to everyone that helped during the 2.20 release cycle on constantly improving Deskbar-Applet.
