GNOME Sound Recorder Preview Release for 3.12

I've been really busy the past two months with a full time course load at school, thesis work, and working a full time web development job. Since the job requires me to work at the office, I haven't had much time to contribute to GNOME or hang out on irc.

 So...if you have been looking for something to hack on, I am looking for help :) I'm planning to do a preview release of the Sound Recorder I wrote during this past summer's GSoC. The app is in JHBuild gnome-apps-3.12-modulesets and has a brand new Bugzilla product (thanks to Matthias Clasen and Andre Klapper for adding these for me).

Today I started filing bugs with details of what needs to be changed or improved before 3.12. I haven't finished this task yet, so if you see something that needs work please file it :) If you would like to contribute to the app you can choose a task from bugzilla to work on or file a bug with a task you think should be done.

Thanks to everyone who has helped so far, and happy hacking :)



  2. Looks very gnome3-ish .. that's good, but still needs little UI polish. Good work!

  3. It needs lots of polish -- very true :)

  4. Looks great, I would move the renaming inline though.

  5. Thanks for reminding me, I'll file a bug so I remember to implement that. Inline renaming is in the plan though we didn't have time to mock it up at GUADEC. After the recording is finished the name of the new file will be selected to allow for renaming. I'm not sure if I will be able to allow for it after that since it may interfere with selecting the row for the file you want to play, but I'll experiment with it.
