Issue 9

4th June 2006 by Danny Allen

This Week...

Kopete 0.12 is released after 10 months of development. Usability fixes in RSIBreak and experiments in amaroK. Common KOffice color management initiative - "pigment" - started. User interface optimisations in Adept package manager. KDE 4 changes: DCOP is finally removed from trunk/. The KDE 4 icon theme, Oxygen, is imported into KDE SVN.
After 6 years, DCOP is no more in the development branch of KDE 4. DCOP is an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism, which allows separate applications to interact with each other.

With an effective implementation (such as the one KDE has had for the last 6 years), the holy grail of desktop integration is brought much closer. This fact, however, leads directly to the reason for the replacement of DCOP by D-BUS. The free desktop is now complemented by viable applications that are not based on the KDE platform, and the use of DCOP prevented full integration with those programs. Thiago Macieira, a leading driver of the switch, elaborates:
D-BUS brings us better interoperability with many other programs. While DCOP was pretty much restricted to KDE applications (yes, I know there were C bindings, but not many people used it...), D-BUS already comes with bindings for several other major frameworks: glib, Java, Python, Perl, Mono, etc. D-BUS has been designed from the ground up to be an interoperable IPC system and also to replace DCOP when the time came. And so it did.

D-BUS also allows us to better talk to our own system: projects like HAL and Avahi are already being used by many Linux distributions to let normal applications get access to some privileged resources. In time, I also hope the Portland Project to come around and use D-BUS for its IPC needs, thus freeing us from using a special library with its own protocol to do what D-BUS already does.
Apart from himself, Thiago mentions other developers who have been instrumental in the porting of KDE-Libs to D-BUS: Simon Hausmann, Harald Fernengel, Kévin Ottens, Benjamin Meyer and Roberto Raggi. I believe our thanks, rather than our flames, should go towards these individuals for ensuring the words "highly integrated" are added to the other great adjectives surrounding KDE 4.
Preparations for the KDE World Developers Conference 2006, otherwise known as aKademy, have moved up a gear with a "Call For Participation":
You're working on innovative and exciting projects related to the "Free Desktop"? You've got something to say to the KDE community? Then this is for you!

The aKademy 2006 conference team is calling for contributors to present their work and vision to the KDE community. This year's conference takes place at Trinity College, Dublin, Republic of Ireland, from September 23rd to September 30th. All presentations will be held during the "KDE Contributors Conference" event on September 23rd and 24th.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • KDE 4 architecture and vision.
  • Desktop related hardware and software technologies.
  • Innovative human-machine interface design.
  • Cool programming tools, patterns and techniques.
  • Applications written for the K Desktop Environment.
  • Advancements in l10n and i18n.
  • Quality Assurance in Open Source projects.
  • Legal, social, philosophical or promotional matters related to KDE.
  • Desktop software standards, usability and accessibility.
  • Performance analysis and improvements.
This means that developers who would like to make a formal presentation have until June 30th (the end of this month!) to submit a 300 word description of their proposed talk. For everyone else who would like to enjoy these presentations and other activities, actual registration for attendance should open within the next few days.
To complement the fundemental changes shaping the next major version of KOffice - version 2.0, which will be based on Qt4 - such as the Flake graphical object library, Casper Boemann announces the start of his work to bring colour management availability to all applications of the office suite. Historically, colour management has only been available in Krita, but access to these features across the board should bring noticable improvements to all documents created. To best explain why colour management is important, some words from Casper:
Color management is a very important feature in a professional setting like printing and web design. To understand what it is all about think of a webdesigner. She sits at her own computer and creates a page with colors that look stunning on her monitor. Unfortunately no two monitors show colors in the same way, so without color mangement it might look quite different when someone else views it on another monitor.

The way color management ensures that colors look the same on both (and indeed every) monitor is through the use of profiles. It's possible to measure the profile of a monitor. So the color management software just has to tweak the rgb triplets so that the visual effect is the same.
Jos van den Oever writes a brief update on a week of progress with "kitten", his personal indexer project:
  • expanded number of backends to four: hyperestraier, clucene, sqlite and xapian. hyperestraier is recommended because of it's speed and small index.
  • moved in svn to /trunk/playground/base/kitten so check out with:
    svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/base/kitten
  • added support for choosing the backend at runtime.
  • abstracted the Query object to simplify querying over different backends.

Thiago Macieira committed changes in /trunk/kdesupport/qt-dbus:

Here's what happens when you start using code that had never been used
before: it doesn't work.

Don't clear the list of watchers, or we'll never get any messages in
D-BUS.

Also, move the QDBusConnectionPrivate::timerEvent into the
qdbusintegrator.cpp file and make a queued call to doDispatch after
sending a message (we may have got something to read).

Also fix a problem with slotTextHint() where the slot was not disconnected correctly, and the text-hint got slower and slower because slotTextHint was called increasingly often for each
hint.

jobs configured (# processors). They used to be "scheduled" by lock
file

cache
grew over limit
- new telnet interface command: internals to output daemon
states
- stricter error handling to avoid suprises
- SIGHUP to daemon and scheduler will reopen the log file to
allow logrotate

Educational

Jason Harris committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdeedu/kstars/kstars:

Implementing multiple map projections!

You now have a choice in how the sky map is projected:

Lambert Azimuthal Equal-area (this is the one we've been using)
Azimuthal Equidistant (similar to Lambert)
Orthographic (like viewing a globe)
Stereographic
Gnomonic (great circles are straight lines)You can choose the projection in the View menu, or with the F5-F10 keys
TO get a feel for the differences, try zooming out to see the whole
projection and then switch between them.

WARNING: I renamed "getXY()" to "toScreen()" and "dXdYToRaDec()" to
"fromScreen()" to better reflect their complementary neature. However,
I haven't yet changed fromScreen() to deal with the multiple map
projections, so things like mouse events won't work properly unless you
are using Lambert.

TODO: the Projection submenu items need to be radio-style items.

I also fixed a bug that caused a crash when opening the Configuration
window. However, there are still problems with that window (after all,
this is the first time we've seen it in 4.x!)

Nicolas Brisset committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/kst/src/plugins/shift:

Adding the shift plugin as discussed on the mailing list today. It can shift forward/to the left (positive shift values) and backwards/to the right (negative shift values), and truncates the extra points so that the resulting vector has the same size as the input vector. Missing values are padded with NaNs, which achieves a nice effect: the curves really look like they are shifted (while padding with zeroes could be confusing in many cases). Finally, as suggested by Barth, the plugin is a filter, which means it can be called directly from a plot via the RMB/Filter menu. Simple, but cool :-)

The Phonon of Search

This patch adds support for two additional storage and query backends.
One is already functional, the other is a placeholder at the moment.
Functional the HyperEstaier backend. This is very fast and low-level,
but remarably easy to add. The query language is different from what
we're currently using and a query translater should be added later.

The second backend is Xapian. It's present in the build system, it
compiles, but that's it for the moment.

Jason Kivlighn committed changes in /trunk/extragear/utils/krecipes/src:

It's about time I implemented this: allow selecting which ingredient properties to
display.

This can be done via Data->Properties and checking/unchecking the tickbox next to a
property.

It is important to note that properties to show are stored in the user configuration
file, and NOT the database. This means users can select which properties without
affecting other users who are potentially sharing the same database (i.e. a remote
database).

Jason Kivlighn committed changes in /trunk/extragear/utils/krecipes:

-Speed up startup by utilizing a cache of the category hierarchy. Loading subcategories is expensive, so at
startup
a cache is initialized and every interface element that loads the category tree transparently takes advantage of
this cache.
-Allow displaying the overall rating of a recipe
-When moving a category, fix memory leak

Thiago Macieira committed changes in /branches/work/kdebase4-dbus/libkonq:

Start porting libkonq to D-BUS and stop.
I cannot port kdebase until the next kdelibs snapshot, because of the
KService changes.

Stopping here for a week.

Thiago Macieira committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs:

Since no objections were raised in kde-core-devel, I am merging the
kdelibs4-dbus branch back into trunk. KDELibs compiles, links and
installs with this, but obviously all other modules will fail to
build. Let the porting commence.

b) replacement of KWFormulaFrameSet and KWTextFrameSet with the flake

c) various commands (move rotate etc) to be replaced with the flake
equivalents

Alter the KWFrame to extend KoShape and adjust (read disable) code that
stops compiling due to that.

Question of the day: how do you know kword dcop interface is not used
very much?
A) because I never received a bugreport about the typo in the
'set*BorderWitdh' methods

Will Stephenson committed changes in /branches/work/knm-make-it-cool/src:

Give a better structure to the network activation/passphrase dialog
code. Reduce coupling, separate the backend from the ui some more, and
stop passing pointers around wildly.

Now the NetworkManagerInfo signals that it needs a passphrase with
passphraseNeeded, which is connected by the applet to the tray. The
tray launches the AcquirePassphraseDialog, which signals back to the
NMInfo when it is accepted or dismissed. The connections are managed by
the tray and the applet. Instead of creating/passing new Networks, the
networks' hal paths are used as handles for signalling, and Networks are
updated directly on the store.

NewWirelessNetwork dialog still passes Network pointers as these are new objects. They will be handled properly in an upcoming commit.

Encryption objects are created on demand by the new widget structure and
should be deleted along with their Network. The new widgets no longer
update Network and Encryption on user input, but only on dialog slotOk,
for simpler code.
