Codethink at GUADEC 2010

Ryan, Juerg and myself are all at Den Haag for GUADEC already for the whole week, Rob will be around by Wednesday. We will be giving away Codethink tshirts during the next few days, so come to poke us if you want one (we have a batch for girls btw!)

See ya around!

Marker support in GtkScrollbar

I thought I should share a sneak peak on a small patch I've been working on to add support for markers support in GtkScrollbar, the idea is to add support for hints in things like search matching, or where in the backlog someone named you in a chat dialog. Here's a screenshot of the result in the default theme:


This should bring Google Chrome-like search functionality to gEdit and Epiphany! Now if only I had some time to work on a set of standard inline dialogs to avoid windowed ones 🙂

The patch, against Gtk+ master, is pretty much done, waiting for a reviewer to point out any pending details. If everything goes alright it should land for 3.0, subscribe to the bug if you want to track its progress. 🙂
