Weekly Report (December 28 - January 3)

Happy New Year to everyone!

In December we’ve been working on converting documentation from old MediaWiki to modern Sphinx/ReadTheDocs format and now converted pages finally got published in our documentation repository. You can see the result here.

In total now more than 50 pages have been converted - mostly those are pages from “Layers” and “Tools” sections. For details about migration of documentation pages please see this discussion.

Code changes:

  • [Synfig Studio] remove unused headers (#1957). Thanks to Rodolfo Ribeiro Gomes.
  • Removed Win32 mkdir() redefinition (#1960). Thanks to Rodolfo Ribeiro Gomes.
  • [CMake/MSVC] Added required packages (#1962). Thanks to Artem Konoplin.
  • [CMake] Fixed issue with CMake generating file inside source tree when using out-of-source build (#1964). Thanks to Artem Konoplin.

That’s all for today! Thanks to everyone who helps to make Synfig better!

  • [Synfig Studio] Fixed an annoying issue with restoring the main window off-screen. (#1973). For example, if you minimize the Synfig window and then close it (via taskbar) - then the next time you start it, the window simply is not visible. In Microsoft Windows, instead of minimizing window, they simply move it outside the visible area. So you won’t see it when we restore its coordinates on the next start. Also this problem can happen if you use multi-monitor configuration. For example when you attach an external monitor to your notebook. And finally this issue is resolved. Thanks to Rodolfo Ribeiro Gomes.
  • [Autotools] Fix generation of “POTFILES.in” file again and “Makefile.am” file (#1981). Thanks to Rodolfo Ribeiro Gomes.
  • [Synfig Studio] Bumped year in About dialog (#1977). Welcome to 2021 :slight_smile: Thanks to Artem Konoplin.
  • [Synfig Studio] Fix states accelerator shortcut in tooltips (#1959). Previously, it could show the word “asterisk” instead of character * (for Star Tool, for example). Thanks to Rodolfo Ribeiro Gomes.
  • [Autotools] Fixed problem with missing *.glsl files in source tarballs (#1982). Thanks to Artem Konoplin.
  • [Synfig Studio] Make Preview tooltips and titles consistent with other dialogs (#1945). Thanks to Firas Hanife.

That’s all for today! Thanks to everyone who helps to make Synfig better!
