Issue 13

2nd July 2006 by Danny Allen

This Week...

PDF hyperlink and file editing support in KViewShell. DVI format support in Okular. Continued progress in "WorKflow", "GMail-style conversation view for KMail" and "KDevelop-teamwork" Summer Of Code projects. BsFilter and DSpam tools are now supported in the KMail anti-spam wizard. LastFM stream support becomes more robust and polished, alongside other notable development work in Amarok. Aesthetic modifications made in Kmplot and Kalzium. KDE 4 changes: Work begins on the "Cokoon" widget style, and KSpell2 is renamed "Sonnet" in preparation for some interesting development work.
This week marks the commencement of the KDE Four Core developer meeting in Norway. Thiago Maceira introduces the event:
In another event in the series of meetings leading to the KDE 4.0 release, the developers of the core libraries will meet in the Norwegian woods from July 1st to July 7th. This meeting, co-sponsored by Trolltech and SuSE, is labelled KDE Four Core, as it is intended to be the direct successor of the KDE Three Beta and KDE Three meetings, that led to the refining of KDE releases 2.0 and 3.0 respectively. But, unlike those, this meeting is only one in a series of "KDE Four" meetings, that started with KDE Four Multimedia.

KDE Four Core has been organised by the Technical Working Group and aims at stabilising kdelibs, kdebase and the new module kdepimlibs and to lay foundation to the porting and development of the KDE 4.0 applications. For this reason and to create a group with coherent focus, the number of developers invited was limited to 24, selected among those who are most active in the porting efforts of the target modules. The meeting has been timed so that most of the new technologies are in the Subversion repository already, but sufficient time is left for other meetings before the final "sprint", which is expected to happen during the aKademy 2006 hacking sessions.
Will Stephenson has a short but to-the-point comment on the meeting:
The team that the Technical Working Group have assembled here are a highly motivated group and we're going to work our socks off for eight days to get kdelibs to a position where the rest of the KDE community can pick it up and start to write KDE 4 apps without the rules changing every week.
And naturally, Aaron Seigo has more insights from deep within the camp:
there are already over 15 of us here with more set to arrive this evening. qt 4.2 is in qt-copy, kdelibs builds against it, there's a copy of kdebase in branches/work/bleedingedge that we will be working on against trunk/kdelibs, icrecream is humming and the meeting is coming to order nicely.

i've already seen some cool qt demos while here, including one that uses the java bindings ... they are amazing. the resulting apps are fast and good looking. other cool stuff are the new docker window animations in qmainwindow which are just gorgeous and smooth.

i get the feeling more than ever that kde4 really takes off here ..... =)
Here is a photo of the partial KDE Four Core group. Look out next week for a full roundup of the meeting - at the end of the week, the participants should be further up the mountain.
The premier development meeting of the year - Akademy 2006, which will be held in Dublin, Ireland at the end of September - has opened for registration. Anybody interested in the future development of KDE is welcome, including "developers, translators, other free software projects, representatives of the software industry and ISVs interested in using free desktops and the KDE application framework". The meeting promises to be an intense and rewarding opportunity to meet fellow KDE participants and define the shape of the KDE 4 offering. See you there!
Stefan Kebekus writes a note regarding new functionality in KViewShell:
Essentially, we have added support for PDF file editing to kviewshell. With kviewshell, the user can now do the following:
  • assemble PDF file (i.e. insert and delete pages)
  • edit metadata (author, keywords, title ...)
  • set background watermarks
This functionality that was constantly asked for by many of our users, and we regqard this as a big step forward. There is also a version of kviewshell for KDE 3 that offers the same functionality available in KDE SVN at

/branches/work/kviewshell-0.7/kviewshell

This version requires the latest developement version of the poppler library. We will come up with a full release for KDE 3 in the near future.
Alexander Neundorf writes a comprehensive article on the migration of the KDE buildsystem to CMake. Alexander makes an interesting observation at the end of his article on the current development status of KDE 4:
Let me say one last word about the current state of KDE4: it compiles, and it runs -- but it crashes very often right now. It does not yet show off many features beyond what KDE3 offers. The compiled kdelibs4 and kdebase4 at this point in time look very much like KDE 3.5 (but made completely unstable). The main difference is that under its hood now ticks Qt4 instead of Qt3. This is the required foundation that now lets us go forward with the "real" development.

Right now, KDE4's code base gets added in code modifications, code refactorizations and new code. But none of the cool new core technologies: (solid, plasma, phonon, oxygen, akonadi, decibel and more) are in a usable state. KDE4 at this moment is completely uninteresting to end-users, they should wait at least for the first technology preview tentatively planned for late autumn of this year. If you are a developer, things are different: come and help us write the code. The fun starts now! :-)

Dominik Haumann committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kate/part/ui/cursorconfigwidget.ui:

Rename "Smart home" to "Smart home and smart end", as smart end uses the same

We could separate the two options and have
* "[ ] Smart home" and
* "[ ] Smart end"
I believe one option for both features is fine, i.e. no need to add yet
another option.

What do you think? :)

Add a splitter to the info pane of the playlist browser. Needs some work regarding sizes
when shown/hidden, though. (Working on it...)

Jocke Andersson committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

There, better size handling with he splitter. I set the maximum size of an open info pane to
2/3 of the window, since I see no reason to hide the playlist browser behind a
non-interactive information pane... Itdoesn't remember its size between Amarok sessions,
though. Should I care about that?

Leo Franchi committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Added lastfm.protocol file for installation. This will make konqueror follow lastfm:// links and pass them on to Amarok. kbuildsycoca must be run after installation for amarok to pick it up. Note: Amarok must be in $PATH for this to work.

Jeff Mitchell committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Make Media Device tab symmetric...now, it will only show itself if you have a configured device, but will also hide itself if you remove all devices/set all to Do Not Handle.

Also, fix Andrew's problem (hopefully for real this time) by fixing a regression and correctly notifying the Media Browser of available devices.

Thomas Kadauke committed changes in /trunk/playground/utils/workflow:

Big Commit (TM):

- made the XML format cool. Now the XML file contains lots of
information about the library, e.g. data types, categories, command
parameters etc. The XML file also contains english user-visible strings,
which can eventually be extracted for translation.
- extended the *Description classes such that they hold all needed
information. Also, XML writing is supported now.
- DatatypeDescription and CategoryDescription are gone now. Datatyps and
categories describe themselves.
- datatypes and categories are now created automatically, as well as
command parameters and results, reducing code size dramatically.
- extended the command API a little.
- all commands are ported to the new API.
- other small fixes and improvements.

An experimental "merge similar categories feature". I'm playing around with this to clean up my categories in my 50000+
database. It uses an algorithm to search for similar names and presents it to the user to merge as one. How close the
similiarity can be is configurable. The same algorithm could be used on other elements such as ingredients.

Colleen, I'm just trying this out... you don't need to document it yet ;-)

first removed feature :) From now on, there can only be one command per
row. This is because no one really needs branched execution anyway, and
it's way too complicated to implement. Also, the "Merge Lists" and "Join
Lists" commands are removed, because they don't make sense anymore.

Again some tweaks to the smooth scrolling.
Fast scrolling trough the document (for example by keeping PageDown pressed)
is now as fast as with smooth scrolling disabled.Also the syncronisation between the PageView and the Thumbnail List is never lost.

KDE Base

Dirk Mueller committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kded/vfolder_menu.cpp:

don't just stat everything for fun. Most file systems
can actually provide the file type without stat(), which
safes syscall overhead and often also a disk access (on
cold caches).
On cold caches I was able to measure a speedup of 3-4%.
Not a lot, but since it can't make things worse, I commit it anyway.

Nice to know that there's actual good use for the copy on write tiles, but alas, it is still not implemented. So de-assume that and speed the adjustment layers up a bit more (less obvious than the previous speedup, though)

Tomas Mecir committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kspread:

Moved Edit->Fill into a manipulator.
Clearing cells (Delete key) now uses Data manipulator, instead of the
formerly used custom one, which was rather ineffective at storing undo
data.
Zoom factor now stored properly.

This is another step towards having KSpread which isn't painfully slow.

Graphics

Wilfried Huss committed changes in /branches/work/kviewshell-0.7/kviewshell/plugins/dvi:

Port the drawing routines of the DVI plugin to the cairo drawing library.
Cairo can draw into memory buffers, so we don't need to lock the programs
event loop anymore, when we do drawing operations.

Altough cairo is slower then QPainter, the GUI feels more responsive, because the
GUI is not blocking anymore seemingly at random. Also there should still be some
optimisation possibilities in our cairo code.

This change is only relevant for the KDE3 branch of kviewshell, since in Qt4 thepainting engine has the needed functionality.

Michael, As you may be aware, we are attempting to move all the libraries we
can from out of the kdepim module and into a new kdepimlibs module. I am
currently attempting to move libkcal into kdepimlibs.However, because libkcal

Here's the problem: all the code in kdepimlibs must be licensed as LGPL, BSD,
or X11. And ktnef is licensed as GPL.The question: would you be willing to
re-license ktnef from GPL to LGPL?This would need to be done in SVN kdepim
trunk only. Then I would do the moveinto kdepimlibs. Please let me know what
you think about this as soon as you get a chance."
