Today’s beta update is an extra special one, because we have, a surprise, brand-new feature for you to try.
This is an exceptional situation since the feature skipped developer, landing straight into beta.
In this case, we just couldn’t wait to show it to you, so we’ve shortened our usual development cycle.
Drag and toss your video around the screen, place it wherever you like, and close it immediately should the need arise.
Go to a video page, such as You Tube, and run a video.
You should see an additional button in the middle of the top border: Click the button to pop out your video: The video, of course, has its own controls to use.
You can also re-attach the video or immediately dismiss it with one hit of the quick close button in the upper-right corner: this action will also pause the original video.
This feature is based on HTML5 technology – we provide the functionality for content embedded in the tag.
This means that (hopefully) soon-to-be deprecated plug-in-based technologies, such as Flash or Silverlight, are not supported. The video control is still undergoing intense development, and we would like to use your help to improve this feature.
So, whenever you spot a bug, or simply have an idea for how we could do things better– please let us know in the comments! Keen photographer, avid Pentaxian, occasional oriental dancer and wannabe dramaculous native language wordsmith; currently in the Desktop QA Team.
We know that at least resizing of the video window is tricky.
This manual is designed to be readable by someone with basic UNIX command-line skills, but no previous knowledge of section called “Repositories and Branches” and the section called “Exploring Git history” explain how to fetch and study a project using git—read these chapters to learn how to build and test a particular version of a software project, search for regressions, and so on.
People needing to do actual development will also want to read the section called “Developing with Git” and the section called “Sharing development with others”. Comprehensive reference documentation is available through the man pages, or git-help(1) command.
For example, for the command With the latter, you can use the manual viewer of your choice; see git-help(1) for more information.
