Issue 143

28th December 2008 by Danny Allen

This Week...

Continued post-release polishing of Amarok 2.0. Support for conversion between temperature scales in the "Weather" Plasmoid. Initial import of "System Status" Plasma applet, which is renamed "System Load Viewer" (shows CPU, memory, and swap usage). Support for on-the-fly compilation of Plasma data engines with the C# language bindings. Further development of the "BookmarkSync" Konqueror plugin, including additions of autofetch, autosave, and a settings dialog. More refined integration of Wikipedia "place" information in Marble. A QtScript engine to allow creation of games using QtScript in KGLEngine. An experimental "curve brush" added to Krita. Support for the ext4 filesystem added to PartitionManager. More reorganisation of wallpapers in KDE SVN, with a general kdeartwork module cleanup removing IceWM themes, KWorldClock maps, and unmaintained iconsets. PolicyKit-KDE moves to extragear/base. Eigen 2.0 Beta 3 is tagged for release.

Bug Fixes

Educational

Akarsh Simha committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdeedu/kstars/kstars:

Fixing a lot of issues caused by translated planet names.

These are temporary "ugly" fixes, before the KDE 4.2 release that we might want to revert and re-design later.

The trouble is that in the case of Sun, Earth and Moon, the name() method returns the English name whereas on other planets, it returns the translated name (while that's not the way it should be, according to the documentation in skyobject.h).
A quick fix for this is to make sure that we always use the translated name to find the planet.

There will still be (minor) issues with languages that have a translation for Pluto.

Diffs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Revision 901758

KDE Base

Ambroz Bizjak committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/plasma/private:

Rewrite resize and rotate logic.
Fixes inconsistent resize behaviour, e.g. if mouse was moved more than the applet could be shrunk, and then moved back a small amount, the applet would immediately start expanding, instead of starting to expand where it stopped shrinking.

Shawn Starr committed changes in /trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/weather:

Clean up some error handling, now no longer crashes with BBC when typing invalid places

Office

Boudewijn Rempt committed changes in /trunk/koffice/krita/image/kis_paint_layer.cc:

don't create superfluous paint devices & fix the paint in wash mode with opacity < 100% bug, at least, if there are no masks.
If there are, all bets are off

Pierre Stirnweiss committed changes in /trunk/koffice:

fix undo/redo for TextList editing

Diffs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (+ 2 more) Revision 902234

Multimedia

Nikolaj Hald Nielsen committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src/playlist/GroupingProxy.cpp:

Make the grouping in the playlist depend on album pointers instead of relying on artist and album names.
This should fix issues with various artist albums nto being properly grouped.
Because of the new private meta registry, the scripted servies are also ok with this way of grouping now.

Unfortunately, this gloriously breaks grouping of albums loaded with Meta::File or Meta::stream classes (even if loaded from a playlist and having correct album information) as the implementation of these classes does not lend itself to using the registry.

Most notable is storing a playlit with a librivox book (which is loaded from the playlist again as a series of Meta::Streams).

These will no longer get grouped, even though they all have the same album names.

Needs to be polished later on.

Andi Clemens committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/kipi-plugins/removeredeyes:

Urs Wolfer committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdeedu/khangman/src:

=> less code, no annoying copy progress dialogs shows up, no platform specific code required

Graphics

Aurélien Gâteau committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdegraphics/gwenview/app:

Removed autoresize code.
It does not work well and prevents remembering the window size.
I do not think remembering the zoom settings is a good idea because when you start Gwenview with an image, most of the time you want to see the whole image.

The zoom value from the previous session is most likely irrelevant to the current image.
Therefore, I close this bug.

Nikolaj Hald Nielsen committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Lets see if this finally settles the playlist search vs filtering debate.
Replace the "Play only matches" checkbox in the menu with a "Show only matches" one.
Enabling this causes the playlist to only show items matching the current search term and disables the next and hides the previous buttons as these does not make much sense in this mode.

This option is not turned off by default, so users will have to actively switch to filtering.

Diffs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Revision 899709
Mark Kretschmann committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src/scripts/radio_station_service/script.spec:

Enable the "Cool-Streams" service script by default.

I don't see any reason to disable it, as it's especially useful for newbies who don't have many other services configured yet.
This way, they have a good starting point.

Later on, they could still disable the script if they don't need it.

Dan Meltzer committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src/dialogs:

Redo the editfilterdialog using a ui instead of everything in code.
This makes the file sort of understandable.

I hate this class.
Can we please never import code from Kate again?

Christoph Pfister committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/kaffeine/src:

next round of updates
- remove tab bar
replacement: switch-to-xxx-tab actions in the view menu
you should not often need to manually switch the tab (except maybe playlist) --> let the application behave in a more intelligent way

- remove xmlgui stuff
KShortcutsDialog takes care of custom key bindings

- nicer fullscreen mode
we turn the main window into fullscreen instead of showing a secondary window
this is possible now because we have more control over the gui components

- various cleanups
