phosh v0.13.0

New features

  • Support high contrast mode (David Hamner, Guido Günther)
  • notifications: Look at category for notification feedback
  • lockscreen: Handle incoming phone calls (Guido Günther). Needs calls >= 41.alpha.
  • lockscreen: Display notification summary and handle global "show-in-lock-screen" toggle (Guido Günther)
  • quick settings: Cycle through all feedback settings instead of only full / silent (Pablo Correa Gomez)
  • torch: Use logind for torch brightness. This obsoletes any upower changes.

Maybe noteworthy

  • backrounds: Handle fractional scaling (Guido Günther)
  • panel: Fix power menu close on tap (Mohammed Sadiq)
  • Migrate to GNOME World (Andrea Veri, Guido Günther)

Detailed changes

phosh (0.13.0) experimental; urgency=medium
  [ Arnaud Ferraris ]
  * torch-manager: use logind instead of upower for toggling the torch.
    The previous version relies on a downstream upower extension which was
    rejected by upstream[1].
    In order to avoid having to carry downstream packages, this patch
    provides a new implementation, based on udev for device discovery, and
    logind for enabling/disabling the torch.
  * dbus: remove upower torch protocol.
    This is no longer needed with the new torch manager implementation
  * d/control: add build dependency on libgudev.
    This is required by the new torch manager implementation.
  * gitlab-ci: add missing dependency for alpine-based jobs
  [ Guido Günther ]
  * doap: Add gnome userids
  * shell: Select a different style sheet for HighContrast theme.
    The stylesheet is the same as the default one except that
    it has foreground and background colors swapped. This
    allows us to use a high contrast light theme.
  * css: Drop .phosh-settings-row and .phosh-settings-listboxrow.
    Code using that was removed in
  * css: Drop duplicated properties
  * css: HighContrast: Use a 1px border for panel buttons.
    This makes the shell chrome easy to identify.
  * home: Make keyboard handling a bit more standard.
    Use GDK_EVENT_{PROPAGATE,STOP} and gdk_event_get_keyval and a template
  * overview: Focus search when user starts typing (Closes: #564)
  * gitlab-ci: Drop unused vars
  * gitlab-ci.yml: Drop and adjust tags.
    Adjust tags to GNOME's CI
  * gitlab-ci: Publish docs
  * gitlab-ci: Speed up package build.
    Drop the docs now that we have gitlab pages
  * Change URLs to
    We also adjust the URLs of projects that are bound to move soon like phoc.
  * README: mention API docs
  * Add dockerfile to create image.
    The image has all the build-deps to speed up build and tests. Based
    on what libadwaita does.
     .gitlab-ci/ --base=debian-cross build--version 0.0.<date>
     .gitlab-ci/ --base=debian-cross push --version 0.0.<date>
    to update.
  * gitlab-ci: Use custom docker image for most jobs.
    This also does away with the global `before_script:`
  * gitlab-ci: Use prebuilt image for 32bit build too
  * dbus: Update calls protocol.
    This adds the needed bit to accept calls on the lock screen.
  * Add libcall-ui as submodule.
    This allows us to share the call ui between calls and
    phosh without coupling them further.
    To build we also need libcallaudio-dev since that's a
    dependency of libcall-ui.
  * main: Initialize libcall-ui
  * phosh-call: Add DBus based implementation of the call-ui-call interface.
    This wraps the DBus interface in a PhoshCall's object that implements
    CuiCall so it can be used with CuiCallDisplay.
  * lockscreen: Allow to accept incoming calls.
    Use CuiCallDisplay to handle incoming calls.
    Relevent mockups:
  * call: Handle can-dtmf.
    This makes sure we keep the dialpad disabled until the
    DBus interface handles it. libcall-ui has all the bits
    already and adding DBus support will be backward compatible.
  * schema: Calls moved to org.gnome.
    Adjust the favorite.
  * Move the calls DBus interface to org.gnome.Calls.
    This changed with the move to upstream GNOME.
  * monitor: Allow to get fractional scale.
    This is derived from the logical size as described in
  * background: Scale by fractional output scale.
    Scale the background by logical scale instead of what we get
    from xdg_output->scale. This allows the background to scale
    with fractional scaling. (Closes: #338)
  * tests: Stub phosh_shell_get_locked()
    This will be used by PhoshNotifyFeedback and is hence needed
    in the standalone notification (test) server.
  * Move feedback for notifications to a separat class.
    It was o.k. to have it in settings since that was the only long term
    notification store and we just used a single feedback event with
    - notifications also being on the lock screen
    - sending different event feedback
    we don't want to add more complexity to that single notification
    display. This also stops abusing the ListBox's create_row callback to
    handle feedback events.
  * notify-feedback: Adjust event name based on notification category.
    Adjust the emitted feedback based on the notification category¹. We could
    use the sound-name instead but that has the problem that the application
    sometimes has a hard time to figure out what the appropriate event is.
    E.g. `message-missed-instant` and `message-new-instant` are hard to tell
    apart from an application PoV.
  * panel: Connect to "setting-done" only once.
    No need to connect on every unfold.
  * tests: Add stubs for notify-server-standalone.
    This keeps things compiling
  * notification-content: Allow to show/hide body and actions
  * notification-frame: Add show-body property.
    This allows to show/hide the bodies of contained notifications
  * lockscreen-manager: Allow to scroll to a lock screen page programatically.
    This will be used to scroll to the unlock page when the user activates a
  * lockscreen: Display notification summary
  * lockscreen: Add missing guard to public function
  * notify-manager: Trigger scroll to unlock page if shell is locked.
    If the user activates a notification and the shell is locked scroll
    to the unlock page.
  * lockscreen: Handle "show-in-lock-screen" gsetting
  * gresources: Sort icons alphabetically
  * feedback-manager: Use separate icon for quiet mode.
    This makes the current mode easier to identify
  [ Mohammed Sadiq ]
  * panel: Hide power popover on tapping topbar if open.
    If the user taps on the notification bar/panel,
    hide power popover (if open) instead of hiding the panel.
  * panel: Return GDK_EVENT_PROPAGATE in button-press-event handler.
    GDK_EVENT_PROPAGATE documents the purpose better than FALSE
  [ Pablo Correa Gómez ]
  * feedback-manager: Rotate profiles on touch to quick settings.
    Currently, there exist three different feedback profiles:
    "full", "quiet", "silent", but quick settings touch only
     switches in-between "full" and "silent". Instead, rotate
     from "full" to "quiet" to "silent" and back to "full"
  [ Zander Brown ]
  * notifications: Dim icon.
  * notifications: Use a bit less space between icon and title.
