4.348. xdg-utils

An updated xdg-utils package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xdg-utils package is a set of simple scripts that provide basic desktop integration functions for any Free Desktop.

Bug Fixes

Previously, a trailing comma was passed in the "thunderbird" command. As a result, Thunderbird was unable to open a compose window. With this update, the trailing comma has been stripped so that Thunderbird now works properly.
Previously, there was a typo found in the xdg-utils source code. As a consequence, Thunderbird, after passing in an email address, created a compose window without the "To:" address. With this update, the typo has been fixed so that the "To:" address is now passed in correctly.
All xdg-utils users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
