It's done !

The article here:

The detailled changelog below

@Matttbe: I've reworked the images, so that they are all consistent (same theme and desktop)
The images that were in the folder are in a "old" sub-folder, if you want to reuse them for an article to a blog for instance

The Cairo-Dock team (Fabounet, Matttbe, plus all the people who contributed with patches, bug-fixes, ideas and themes) is proud to announce the release of Cairo-Dock 3.3.

Here are the main changes of this version:
  • Added a search entry in the Applications Menu. It allows to rapidly look for programs from their name or their description
  • Added support of logind in the Logout applet
  • Better integration in the Cinnamon desktop
  • Added support of the StartupNotification protocol. It allows launchers to be animated until the application opens and avoids accidental double launches
  • Added an new third-party applet: Notification History to never miss a notification
  • Upgraded the Dbus API to be even more powerful
  • A huge rewrite of the core using Objects

Other changes:
  • Core:
    • Cairo-Dock Session:
      • Support Gnome Session 3.8
      • When launching it for the first time and if Compiz is running, enable a staticswitcher (Alt+Tab) if no switcher is enabled
    • Default themes: added a few default apps for XFCE
    • Dialogues:
      • Prevent dialogues from going out of the screen if the WM doesn't handle this
      • Close the sub-dock if a dialogue overlaps it
      • Fixed a bug that made the background of the widgets inside the dialogue visible
    • Docks:
      • Fixed a bug that made a sub-dock hide itself when placed in the top left corner of the screen
      • Fixed a bug that prevented sub-docks to hide in specific conditions
    • GUI: settings about images: used the image selector widget instead file selector widget
    • OpenGL:
      • Created a backend for the OpenGL interfaces (can be useful for a future support of other OpenGL interfaces)
      • The Intel 4000HD is now blacklisted (except if 'cairo-dock -o' command is used) due to this annoying bug
    • Tests: Added a test framework, and several tests
    • Theme packager: added the possibility to select another output directory and added a message if there is an error
    • Windows:
      • Isolated a lot of functions linked to X11 (can be useful for a future support of Wayland or Mir)
      • If a window has no type and is not transient (e.g. windows of xterm, lxterm, uxterm, and rxvt), keep it on the taskbar
    • Misc:
  • Plug-ins:
    • Applications Menu:
      • Added support of ezame, a new Menu Editor
      • Added an option to not load settings.menu file (can be useless or it duplicates menu sections on some systems)
      • Set the desktop environment to correctly exclude apps
    • Clipper: In some cases the history was not saved before the end of the session
    • Clock:
      • Support login1 for the 'resuming' signal
      • ICAL: Check if a task a valid before adding it
    • DBus:
      • Interface: Python: fixed a crash if no translation file is found for this domain
      • Installation: Python: support DESTDIR env var
    • Drop to Share:
      • Added Imgur.com support
      • Fixed imageshack.us and uppix.com support
      • Improved error messages
      • Added the possibility to translate some dedicated menus
      • Fixed the title of the Text items in the History menu
    • Indicator-applet3 (Indicator-Generic):
      • Added support of new Indicator Services (Indicator-NG, installed in /usr/share/unity/indicators)
      • Added a workaround to draw the correct image after a short delay if the image is not yet ready.
    • Logout:
      • Lock Screen: added support of cinnamon-screensaver, all [smthg]-screensaver daemons and light-locker
      • Added the possibility to switch user with a custom command
      • Fixed switch user when using GDM
      • Displayed a warning message if it's not possible to reboot/shutdown.
    • Mail: Added the possibility to use a specific icon for each account
    • Note-taking: improve the window to edit notes
    • Notification area: Hide the icon if there is no item (if there is nothing to display)
    • PowerManager:
      • Better handle the case where a device is added/removed
      • Capacity: used the sum and not the average of all batteries
      • Label: used shorter string for the label and start with the percentage (should be better when displaying the dock in a vertical position where labels have a maximum size)
    • Recent-event:
      • Support both Zeitgeist-1.0 and Zeitgeist-2.0
      • Dialogue: used a longer search bar (expanded and filled)
      • Update the result each time a new key is pressed
    • Switcher: listen to more events to correctly update the icon when a window is moved/minimised/created/...
    • Terminal: Added a few more options: scrollback, scroll on output/keystroke, custom font
    • Weather: URL for the detailed weather has changed
    • Wifi:
      • If we don't want the quickinfo: refresh the icon too
      • Used the full path for iwconfig
  • Third Party:
    • Calendar:
      • Used 'cal' if 'ncal' is not available
      • Added a theme selector: default, faenza, custom
    • Deluge & KTorrent: translated torrents info message
    • GMail: reduce the number of update of the icon/quickinfo (do that only if it's needed)
    • Google: Parser: if the URL can changed: with or without '/url' (it depends of the country)
    • Moon: fixed a few bugs:
      • Added the possibility to translate the label (days)
      • When using a subdock for the next 7 days, also change the main icon
      • Added the possibility to use other icons in different formats (only in the directory of the applet)
      • Removed duplicated code
    • Screensaver inhibitor: only list processes of the current user
    • Translator: invert languages when scrolling
    • Transmission:
      • Added the possibility to display the remaining time of the slowest active torrent as quick-info
      • Improved torrents info dialogue
      • Fixed a possible crash if Transmission has never been launched before
    • Twitter: Updating to the API 1.1
    • Websearch:
      • Fixed Google, Flickr and Bing search.
      • Removed Webshots (no longer available) and Twitter (api has changed).
      • List of results now shows the search engine's logo if is not a thumbnailable link icon.
    • Misc:
      • Added the possibility to translate the name of the applet
      • Fixed some compatibilities with Python 3 (some applets still need Python 2 - feel free to help us )
