Release Notes

Changes between 0.3.5 and 0.3.6
-------------------------------

 * Documentation updates
 * Support for OpenSuSE/Fedora and other RPM-based systems
 * Splashy now works with Directfb 1.x
 * Splashy runs from initramfs under Init again (Thanks to RPath Linux and Directfb Dev Team) (upstart works just like before)
 * Themes are now in /usr/share/splashy/themes and a symlink from /etc/splashy/themes points to that location (See README for more)

    order of library link was wrong
    
    -lsplashycnf must not be the first to link for splashy_config. This makes it "last" in the list

    do not complaint if tmpfs not mounted
    
    if user exits gdm, do not complaint about umounting the tmpfs we created and umounted during boot

    attempts to make Splashy exit faster
    
    do not check for things that are not necessary. just get out quickly

    use tty6 by default after Splashy exits
    
    tty6 should not have any weird messages and it will also work fine if gdm/kdm/xdm fails to start X

    switch to tty8 by default
    
    since this is a desktop, we default to a tty that has no text on it after Splashy is done. It should allow gdm/kdm/xdm to start and switch to tty7

    create a symlink in /etc/splashy/themes -> /usr/share/splashy/themes
    
    this allows Splashy to work normally during shutdown (i.e. not running from initramfs)

    run from initramfs by default
    
    now that we know what the problem with directfb was, we can set this to a sane default

Date:   Wed Oct 3 08:36:26 2007 -0400

    note on fixing keyboard event issue
    
    this should allow anybody to use init and directfb to start splashy from initramfs

    disable console reading text
    
    the thread that reads messages from the console is buggy and not used. this code actually slows down Splashy and causes SEGV and ABRT signals to be caught when exiting with ESC while in Splashy "test" mode. We need to revisit this feature later. splashy_update "text foo" should still work and allow users to send messages to the text overlay. F2 also works
