I haven’t blogged on my coding activities in a long while, so I figured I’d do so now. I just finished a patch to GtkLabel that implements an “ellipsize” property, using owen’s great work getting that into PangoLayout. Now all the various “BlahEllipsizingLabel” widgets can go away.
I then used that in the FileChooserButton widget I’ve been working on, after doing some cleanups and a reorganization to match GTK+ coding standards. I sent that code to the gtk-devel mailing list (archives are 2 days behind, for some reason).
Finally, I’ve been working on integrating the icon chooser I’ve been working on into libegg.
