Changelog for 15.3:
- Improved zoom function in image viewer
- Control center redesigned, now uses IconView instead of buttons
- Added options to Control center for changing tint2 and conky themes, as well as notification gravity
- 4 new tint2 themes
- Updated mpv to 0.4.1: it's still from Arch ARM repo, only newer date
- Connman UI patch for services widget height
- Qt5 applications will now use gtk style by default

Next iso will not be released until availability of Gtk 3.14, at least.

Hi Sim,
Thanks for V15.3 :) will download and test soon. Did you use the same date for rollback or a latter one?
Cheers.

Yes still same ARM date like in all 15.x versions.

mpv is newer, or else gmp-video and others would be broken in real rolling Arch after mpv changed a bit slave mode commands

Writing from V15.3 right now :) Looks sleeky with the new tint2 and conky themes. Any way for the user to add more conky themes if so desired?

No problem. Hope the next version will come with a newer ARM date though. ;)
Cheers for a good job done.

Looking at alpha booting up (before Xorg is run) it still says it's r15.2 instead of r15.3.
Not a big issue but it can be misleading for a couple of minutes.
Is it me or did the old tint2 menu had links for text files explaining how to configure tint2 and concky? I'll have to search the internet on how to configure them.
Tint2's and concky's theme chooser looks excellent. As smill99 pointed out, it would be great to have an option in there choose other themes that you can find on the internet.
Last but not least, I had issues building 'firefox-esr-bin' and 'chromium' using makesb with devel_15 loaded.
It complaints about libgtk.

Code: Select all

chromium: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Actually both chromium, firefox-esr-bin and xfce4-power-manager complaint about lack of libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.
Any idea on how to solve this issue?
But thanks a bunch for the new release.

Do you have a roadmap or something that you could share with us?
Also, most developers are slowly moving away from gtk to Qt. Are you planning on doing the same?
Thanks mate :)

I'm starting upload of the new 15.4 iso:

Changes:
- Emendo has tabs support
- Wallpaper setter loads thumbnails asynchronously
- Taeni typing 'exit' closes active tab only, not the whole application
- Added dconf-editor to control center
- Patched SpaceFM to use standard GTK3 bookmarks file

Could you tell us what branch of the arch rollback machine is going to be used in 15.4, please?
Thanks :)

ARM date is the same as in all other 15.x versions. This update is mainly just to put new emendo with tabs in the latest iso on sourceforge.
