  • GNUstep Sees New 2020 Releases For This Apple Cocoa/OpenStep Re-Implementation

    It's been a while since last having any news to report on GNUstep, the free software re-implementation of the Apple Cocoa / OpenStep frameworks. But GNUstep is alive and well and today several of its components saw new releases -- among the feature work is improving its multi-monitor handling.

    GNUstep GUI Backend 0.28 is one of the new releases today. The GUI back-end has cursor handling improvements, focus handling improvements, better font handling, and usage of Xrandr for multi-monitor support.

  • GNU gettext 0.20.2 released

    - Shell:
    o The programs 'gettext', 'ngettext', when invoked with option -e, now expand '\\' and octal escape sequences, instead of swallowing them. (Bug present since the beginning.)
    o xgettext now recognizes 'gettext' program invocations with the '-e' option, such as "gettext -e 'some\nstring\n'"
    - Python: xgettext now assumes a Python source file is in UTF-8 encoding by default, as stated in PEP 3120.
    - Desktop Entry: The value of the 'Icon' property is no longer extracted into the POT file by xgettext. The documentation explains how to localize icons.
