Awakened around 2 by the wee lad arriving in our bed. Remained awake due to irregular kicks to various bits of anatomy until the wee lad left to watch Dora the Explora around 6:30.

Have spent the last few days wading through all of the important control-centre bugs. What a depressing mess. Things are getting marginally better, but there is still a huge amount of ugliness. Mime types are just a mess. On a less depressing note the printer working groups are moving quickly. The papi interfaces are pretty nice. The current sample implementation is still a cups wrapper (rather than pure ipp) but at least we could fix some of the more egregious aspects of cups under the covers.

My gnumeric tree compiles again, and we're stripped down to only gconf as the only hard depend above gtk. The text exporter is prettier without GnomeDruid, and seth's input on the switch from GtkClist -> TreeView. As a bonus to those of you interested in the charting engine I've had to replace GnomeAbout with something more portable. That was all the instigation necessary to try an exercise the charting engine with a more convential use case, and put some animated plots into the about box. That should help sand off the rough edges to the api.

SamuraiMike's radar plot implementation will go in shortly too, which leaves us with just a few more plot types (surface and some of the stock types) necessary before we have full coverage.

1.2.6 will get announced shortly, it's hard to be motivated with all the recent medical trouble in the family.
