Proposed Features for 0.96
These features have been proposed for the Sugar 0.96 Release cycle and await approval.
|Gonzalo Odiard||Global Text to Speech||When the user press Alt+Shift+S the currently selected text should be said by the computer.|
|Walter Bender||Write to Journal anytime||Replacement for the Naming Alert that lets you write to the Journal at any time while working on an activity.|
|Gonzalo Odiard||Journal data tagged private or public||Provide a way to identify Journal entries as private for the owner or public.|
|Walter Bender||Multiple Home Views||Option to have different collections of activities on the Home View for formal (classroom) and informal (home) use.|
|Walter Bender||Thumbs View in Journal||Thumbs view plugin for Journal.|
|Walter Bender||Background image on Home View||Add the ability to set a background image to the Home View.|
|Walter Bender||Journal Volume Toolbar enhancement||The VolumesToolbar class in volumetoolbar.py should be extended so that Sugar activities can "mount" directories containing example projects, e.g., the samples subdirectory in Turtle Art. Thus samples will be available through the Sugar Chooser rather than having to use the GNOME file chooser.|
|Walter Bender||Activity specific metadata in Journal||The idea is to record metadata related to the use of an activity and display it in the detail view of the Journal.|
|Sebastian Silva||Statistics gathering||To gather usage statistics in separate logs from error logs (up to a storage limit). The software improvement process requires usage statistics data to learn from our users.|
|Anish Mangal, Aleksey Lim||Proxy configuration||To add a section in the Control Panel that allows the user to configure network proxy settings.|
