Earlier this year I took over maintainership of Gnome System Monitor. It had been neglected for a couple years which was obvious by taking a look at the bugs piling up in Bugzilla. When I started there were about 255 bugs which I quickly got down to just under 200.
Up until a few weeks ago it had stayed at that level. But a few weeks back Robert Roth appeared out of nowhere and started triaging bugs and submitting new patches and updating old patches. He’s been keeping me busy reviewing and applying patches. With his help the bug count is now at 146. Still high but very good progress. So, thanks Robert!
The big new feature so far this cycle is Control Groups support. Jason Baron from Red Hat has added an option to view the control group information for each process. This is a work in progress. I’ve included an early patch in the 188.8.131.52 release. If you find bugs or just want to follow the progress please visit bug #663644. Also, thanks to Lennart for his input on how best to implement this.
With many bugs squashed and a few new features, the 3.4 release stands to be The best release ever (TM).
