Default Status of startup-notifications

Hi,

I recently found that startup-notification is quite old in fedora and
filed a bug to update to the recent upstream version. [1]
So far I didn't get any feedback and would like to ask if someone of
those [2] who also have commit on this package could update it or
explain what the reason for this "old" version is.

Thanks

Johannes

That's not entirely fair. 0.10 was released in April 2009, and built in
Fedora in July of that year. The first functional change after that was
March 2010. That change was written by Colin Walters as a Gnome 3
enhancement, and has been in the Fedora package ever since.

The major functional change since then has been switching to xcb
internally, which is a minor performance win but nothing to write home
about. That landed in 0.11 (May 2011), but broke ABI in the process.
0.12 later that same month reverted the ABI to be compatible with 0.10.

That said:

% koji buildinfo startup-notification-0.12-1.fc16 | head -5
BUILD: startup-notification-0.12-1.fc16 [245068]

Hi,

alright thanks for clarification. Then again I am wondering why there is
still the fc13 release in the repos even if it was rebuilt for f15.
Just curious.
