Bodacious Budgie v7 Released with Added Notifications Support

Ikey Doherty has announced the release of Bodacious Budgie v7 Desktop – aka Bodacious Budgie.  This release now has an added notifications support, added initial X11 tray (notification area) which will eventually be superseded by appindicator support, fixed a fair few bugs with session and widgets, and Budgie Popovers now use “native” GtkPopover styling. In short, it allows the sexiness of your theme to continue with Budgie

Budgie Notifications


Bodacious Budgie v7 update

  • New notification daemon support (freedesktop)
  • X11 tray support (temp until new appindicator comes in)
  • Native popover rendering
  • Various popover placement/sizing fixes
  • Volume control via new settings popover (no mute yet.)
  • Hide power applet when no battery is found
  • Various multihead tweaks
  • Scroll with mouse to change volume
  • Integration with GNOME clock settings
  • Split libbudgiewidgets as shared library
  • Initial shadow support (bottom panel only.)
  • Vastly improve session logic (fixes frozen start, multiple instances)
  • Do not ship .c files in make dist
  • Enable changing of menu icon and label via gsettings key (no ui yet)

Budgie is currently known not to start on GDM3.12 on certain distributions. Also remember that the Ubuntu and Fedora repositories are only compiled for GNOME 3.10, not GNOME 3.12, so you may either have unresolvable dependencies (Ubuntu) or undefined behaviour (Fedora)
