GNOME

Lots of stuff happening lately. I got some great comments about gnome-recent on mailing lists, and it was suggested that we create a standard that all desktops use to store this kind of stuff. I think this is good idea, and I hope we can get the KDE folks and others onboard for this. Not that having a standardized list of recently used files is such a huge priority, but it has kind of fallen in my lap and I want to see it through. I've written a preliminary specification . I'm going to mull it over some more though before sending it to xdg-list. I have also converted gnome-recent to adhere to this spec, as both a proof of concept and "lead by example" sort of thing.

Sadly, I've been neglecting gedit stuff still. Paolo notified me of several bugs that were my fault. I fixed some of them, but others are still left. Sigh. Basically, I need to be a lot more careful about screwing around with text - like converting to/from UTF-8 when needed.
