Empathy Bump to 3.7.2 in Gnome Git

GNOME Shell 3.7.x

In GNOME 3.8 it will be possible to hide a User Name in the Lock Screen as this is a potential Privacy threat (bug #688577)

The change will be  included in GNOME Control Center Privacy Panel which is not yet landed in Master G-C-C Git, but it maintains a separate branch (wip/privacy).

GNOME Videos (aka Totem)

In Totem 3.6 and beyond, there is a new shortcut to save files. You can use <Ctrl+C> which is a bit confusing as <Ctrl+S> makes more sense (bug #688298).

There isn’t a re-designed interface for Totem 3.7 which is going to be evolved in the initial plans for GNOME Videos.

  We can't watch comments unless G+ provides an API or if you send a notification, e.g +World Of Gnome

    haha, poor empathy. Still no meta-contacts support. Its like living in the 00s IM dream.

      There is meta-contact support, but it doesn’t work optimal. You should use Gnome Contacts. I think they are scheduling some further improvements for 3.8 on that.

      • Adonis K (Vαяēмēиøš)

        well, i hope so. Cause i’d rather not use gnome contacts (or any other contacts application for that matter).

    When you have news about more than one compnent (empathy, totem), please don’t use titles with just one of them (empathy release). Use something like various news from gnomeland.

    • alex285

      I see, there were minor news on the other two Apps, but I guess you are right.

    The only thing a ask to Empathy devs : “Give us back the Compact View in the Contacts List” !!! It’s almost impossible to use on screen smallers than 13 inches.

    • alex285

      Didn’t know that Empathy had a compact view ^^
