Engage icon file license difficulties

Due to the E code all using the BSD license it is proving difficult to get a nice iconset to use by default in E apps. This is being looked into by the E team and over time we expect to have a nice solution involving user contributions etc, but for now I have uploaded some icons for engage. This is a collection of .eet files to use in mappings and launcher folders. The icons are from Gnome and thus the set is GPL for the time that it exists. Get it here

Engage uses E_App watchers

Well, now engage is using rasters excellent e17_pre5 code for configuring the iconbar aspect it is time to have some fun, so now if you add or remove an icon from the configuration engage will automatically adjust – cool no? 🙂

Engage gets system tray

Finally the long haul of learning the X system tray (or “notification area”) specification has reaped some benefits. The code has pulled together to provide us with the tray you see below – it may not be perfect yet, but it certainly rocks!!!
