Folks 0.9.5 No Longer Supports Multiple IndividualAggregator Instances

This version of libfolks also fixes two annoying bugs

By on August 30th, 2013 09:38 GMT

The GNOME developers released a new development version of the Folks (libfolks) package for the GNOME desktop environment, a library that aggregates people from multiple sources.

Folks 0.9.5 drops support for multiple IndividualAggregator instances. Therefore, in order to retrieve the default aggregator singleton, clients should use the new IndividualAggregator.dup constructor, as the default IndividualAggregator.with_backend_store and IndividualAggregator constructors are now deprecated.

Moreover, among the bugs fixed in Folks 0.9.5, we can mention a crash when removing an individual with two aggregators instantiated, and an issue with folks_small_set_copy(), which doesn't always return a value. For more details, please take a look at the official raw changelog.

Download Folks 0.9.5 right now from Softpedia. Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
