The gDesklets project provides an advanced architecture for desktop applets. It brings mini programs (desklets), such as weather forecasts, news tickers, system information displays, or music player controls, onto your desktop, where they are sitting there in a symbiotic relationship of eye candy and usefulness.
The possibilities are really endless and they are always there to serve you whenever you need them, just one key-press away. The system is not restricted to one desktop environment, but currently works on most of the modern Unix desktops (including GNOME, KDE, Xfce).
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· When moving from gDesklets 0.36.1 to 0.36.2 the main focus has been set on improving the build process and documentation. Some few features which have been planned to be released with gDesklets 0.40 have been introduced to this release, too. Furthermore there has been some code cleaning, optimization and bug fixing. For a complete list please take a look at the included ChangeLog file.
· Starting with gDesklets 0.36.2 desklets can now be enabled and disabled. A new menu entry has been added to the desklets so you can disable them "on-the-fly". Calling "gdesklets --check-first" - or "gdesklets -c" - in a terminal will enable the desklets again. Opening the gDesklets shell will enable the desklets, too.
· Most of the changes and improvements can be found "under the hood" and are therefore invisible to the user.
