Latte Dock accepts donations, what is coming...



Hello again...

because there are users that requested a way in order to support Latte even further and donate for the project, we created a donation page at pledgie: https://pledgie.com/campaigns/34116

and we added also a donate button in our main page at: https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/


Click here to lend your support to: Latte Dock and make a donation at pledgie.com !




to cheer you up a bit for the upcoming 0.7 version which is scheduled for the end of August or maybe earlier ;) based on the effort...

some of the features already implemented and some that are going to land:

  • support layouts and change them with one click (we enhanced our export/import configuration mechanism to layouts. We provide already 5 predefined layouts and the user can add as many wants to)
  • provide two layouts for the configuration window (Basic/Advanced)
  • set the dock transparency per dock and enable/disable its panel shadows
  • global shortcuts, Super+No (unity way), Super+Ctrl+No (new instance), Super+` (raise the hidden dock)
  • support from libtaskmanager the libunity interface in order to show progress indicators and item counters such as unread e-mails etc... this needs libunity9 installed. +expose independently our own simpler dbus interface to show counters for tasks if there are programmers out there that dont want to use the libunity way
  • tasks audio streams indicator (increase/decrease volume with scroll whell and mute with clicking it)
  • the new Places exposer for your tasks/launchers that plasma 5.10 offers
  • dynamic dock background (show the background only for maximized windows and choose also if you want the dock shadow to be shown in that case)
  • copy your docks easily with one-click (extremely useful in multi-screen environments that want the same dock between different screens)
  • sync your launchers between all your docks (global launchers, they do not erase your per dock launchers if you disable them)
  • wayland tech preview (there is already code implemented for this and landed in our master)
  • support fillWidth/Height applets like the plasma panel
  • substitute the Latte plasmoid with your favourite plasma taskmanager (having implemented proper fillWidth/Height for the applets we can now provide this)
  • support separators everywhere and work correclty with the parabolic effect
  • various improvements for launchers start up, animations etc....

Latte 0.7 will be compatible with plasma>=5.9 and qt>=5.7


thanks everyone once more for your support...
