More progress in gnome-recent, albeit slow. I implemented a semi-non-broken notification mechanism. Previously, it was just monitoring the file with gnome-vfs, but that sucked since I was getting two notifications per single change (truncate, write). Not good if you have a big list. Now, I just use a PropertyChange X event on the root window for notification. It works well, but the bad part is, GnomeRecentModel now requires an X connection, and depends on gdk. Sigh. Maybe it will end up being ok though. Also, I thought about adding some API that allows filtering the list based on URI scheme. This would allow you to see only the recent mails sent, or only the recently used ftp servers, etc. Maybe that would be useful.
