Trick or Treat!

To celebrate the mass consumption of sugary candy on this Hallowed Eve, I present to you some chocolate coated eye candy:

That's njpatel's Affinity, which hasn't been worked on in a while until the past month or so. Here are some things that I got done on it:
  • a right-click context menu,
  • an about dialog,
  • a recent searches / clear current search button,
  • the option to only hide the window when forced,
  • the option to have the buttons draw as normal Gtk buttons,
  • the option to get the colors from Gtk,
  • the option to draw borders and a gradient around the frames,
  • automatic refresh of colors when changed,
  • and, most notably, plugins!
  • Also a "Run" plugin, like Alt-F2.
Affinity lives in Launchpad and has a wiki with some screenshots. Want to try out Affinity?
bzr co lp:affinity
cd affinity
sudo make install

I'd love to say more, but I have to go hand out candy to ghosts and goblins in costumes, and I can't think of much else to say. :)

Glad to see Affinity getting some attention! Always thought it had a lot of potential...

Any Thoughts ?

Try r142. I'm still a novice to the build system. :)
