Issue 148

1st February 2009 by Danny Allen

This Week...

Initial support for adding video and audio previewing (similar to the file dialog) to Dolphin's metadata panel. A new "highlight window" effect for KWin-Composite. Filtering support in the "FileWatcher" Plasmoid, work on the "Welcome" Plasmoid, and initial import of "OpenBrain" and "Translatoid" Plasma widgets. Experiments to make a screensaver using KGLEngine. First approach on integrating an "interactive graphs concept" in KAlgebra. Initial code for an object-oriented KTurtle. Initial work on a 3D view completed in Kolf NG (a rewrite effort). Improvements in ReplayGain and bookmark support in Amarok 2. Major improvements to the Facebook photo download/import KIPI plugin (used in Digikam, Gwenview, etc). Support for LZMA decompression added to Strigi. More work on porting Konversation to KDE 4. Work on KPackageKit and the "DynaDraw" painting mode of Krita. Start of work on a Kexi-ODBC bridge. Fixes of many "release critical" bugs for the "Chart" shape in KOffice. Initial import of LinTV. Restart of development work on automatic language detection and switching for Sonnet. KTorrent 3.2 Release Candidate 1, and KDevelop 3.9.91 (first beta) are tagged for release.
Sebastian Kügler introduces "Lion Mail", a new email information Plasmoid (based on Akonadi):
"Lion Mail" is a new Plasmoid that displays information about emails on the Plasma desktop. The general concept is to display certain selected emails, and to notify about new emails under specific conditions (for example, "Show new emails in my 'Private' and 'Work' folder, but only notify me about new ones in the 'Work' folder"). I want to create a flexible way of dealing with emails that does minimal harm to the workflow by giving quick access to interesting new emails. It should be easy to decide for the current user whether to deal with the email right away, to put it aside for reference, or whatever, without doing a "full task switch". Emails should be first class objects on your desktop. Drag-and-drop support for emails is planned as well: it should be natural to just drag-and-drop an email or a folder onto your desktop if you need it for the current task.

Lion Mail consists of three parts: the Akonadi data engine, an email applet, and the Lion Mail container.

The Akonadi data engine provides access to emails and contacts to Plasma applets. The Lion Mail applet uses the data engine to retrieve header information and collections from Akonadi. The data engine loads everything on demand only. The basic idea is that it provides lists of collections, and (for those collections) lists of emails. The same goes for contacts.

The "Email Message" applet displays the contents of an email (sender, subject, recipient, and so on). It can take various forms. A tiny email applet is just one line high, much like an item in a traditional listview, or a menu. The more space the email applet can use, the more information it will show. In Akonadi there's the distinction between the email's envelope for headers and meta information, and the full payload which also includes body and attachments. The "Email Message" applet loads the full body on demand when it's supposed to show it, as body and attachments can be quite large.

Lion Mail is a container that can hold collections. Collections are implemented as Plasma Extenders, so you can tear a conncetion off of Lion Mail and put it somewhere on the desktop. Collections share a configuration (the one from Lion Mail), but are otherwise fairly independent. A collection is usually a set of emails (a folder for example), or an Akonadi query.

With all that said, only the very basics are in place right now. Lion Mail is in a very early and immature state at the present time. It is missing features itself (notifications, for example), but it also depends on Akonadi in two ways: Akonadi doesn't provide fine-grained access to searches yet. It is planned for the future, but not yet there. Then of course, the user's data needs to get into Akonadi first, that means most users will only see Lion Mail working for them when KMail is ported to Akonadi, which is currently planned for the 4.4 release. Mailody by Tom Albers, however, uses Akonadi already, so Lion Mail will work well with it (at least that's the plan).

I also have some ideas for the future (which maybe just means that I'm a slow coder ;-)). First, the user should be able to check email using Lion Mail. Then, I'd like tighter integration of contacts, so you can get quick access to more information about the person you're emailing with. I've already added basic support for contacts to the Akonadi data engine, though it's still pretty rough. Then, I'd like to make Lion Mail fully NEPOMUK aware. Tagging and rating would be first steps, cross-referencing emails ("related emails") and switching shown collections and enabling or disabling notifications based on the current Activiy would be further steps. That way, when you switch to working on some project, the emails and contacts related to that project automatically become available at your fingertips.

Aside from those wild dreams, Lion Mail should still satisfy the use case of "I just want a notification when someone emails me" perfectly well.

First, I'll need to get the basics working though.

Bug Fixes

Development Tools

Simon Edwards committed changes in /branches/KDE/4.2/kdebindings/python/pykde4/sip/plasma:

* Added a bunch of /TransferThis/ annotations which should fix a heap of memory and object ownership related bugs.
* Added a couple of methods which were added to plasma at the 11th hour w.r.t. the 4.2.0 release cycle.

Diffs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (+ 8 more) Revision 917978


Akarsh Simha committed changes in /branches/KDE/4.2/kdeedu/kstars/kstars/tools/conjunctions.cpp:

Backporting fix for an i18n bug. The original commit log is as follows:

Fixing i18n bug which prevented the Sun and Moon from being selected in the conjunctions tool. The bug was preventing me from calculating today's solar eclipse. Things now work.

I think the amount of obscuration shown by KStars seems to be lesser than observed, and this is yet another thing to investigate.

We should really, really do something about the way translated names are handled.

KDE Base

Luboš Luňák committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/krunner/screensaver/xautolock.cpp:

Do not check whether internal X screensaver is enabled or disabled, since we have disabled it ourselves. Some apps might try to disable it too to prevent screensavers, but then our logic breaks[*]. Those apps need to disable DPMS anyway, or they will still have problems, so the DPMS code above should be enough.

Besides, I doubt other screensaver implementations check this either.

OOo presentation mode still works because of the previous fix.

Sebastian Trueg committed changes in /trunk/kdesupport/soprano:

Isn't it just typical: I just released Soprano 2.2 this morning just to find a stupid problem in the new SparqlModel:
the path is hardcoded to "/sparql" only because Virtuoso exposes a read-only interface on that path.

Well, that is not good. So here is the fix which allows to optionally set the path.

Diffs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Revision 917280
David Faure committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kdeui/widgets:

Fix Ctrl+A not going to the lineedit or textedit that has focus, when a Ctrl+A action exists in the window (and the same for Ctrl+E and Ctrl+U in lineedits, on X11).

The "real fix" would be in QLineEdit and QTextControl, email sent to qt-bugs.

This fix will be in KDE 4.2.1.

David Faure committed changes in /branches/KDE/4.2/kdelibs/khtml/khtml_part.cpp:

Fix Ctrl+U and Ctrl+I being ambiguous in pages with frames, by only setting those shortcuts in the toplevel part.

I spent a few hours trying to make Ctrl+U show the source for the current frame while still seeing the shortcut associated with the "View Document Source" menuitem, but this was a complex shortcut reassignment mess.

Instead I added the [hidden, unfortunately] Ctrl+Shift+U for "View Frame Source".

David Faure committed changes in /branches/KDE/4.2/kdelibs/kinit:

Repair klauncher support for unique-applications like konsole.
(adding org.kde.konsole in konsole.desktop was just a workaround, org.kde is still assumed when not present)

Brown paper bag for me - now expecting tons of new klauncher error reports from 4.2.0... :(

Fix will be in 4.2.1.

Peter Penz committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/apps/dolphin/src/panels/information:

Postpone the creating of the media object until the play- or stop-button has been pressed.
This solves the issue that Dolphin might get blocked during hovering media files.

Dolphin still gets blocked when requesting a media object the first time, but for the user this "just" means that after pressing the play-button the first time, that the playing starts a little bit later.


Thorsten Staerk committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdepim/ktimetracker:

Finally completing the work started with KDE 3.4: ktimetracker's main window now only loads the KPart.

Stop timers before quitting.


Thorsten Zachmann committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kword/part/KWView.cpp:

* Fix BUG 180759 KWord crashes when opening .ODF file.
The probem was that the zoom handler already was connected and was handling events. Fixed by connecting the signals after setting up the status bar.

Thorsten Zachmann committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kpresenter/part/tools/KPrPlaceholderTool.cpp:

* Fix: Bug 181908: File selection dialog is shown two times when adding picture.
Thanks to the bug squad :-)

Thorsten Zachmann committed changes in /trunk/koffice/libs/kopageapp/tools/backgroundTool/KoPABackgroundToolWidget.cpp:

Fix Bug 181866: Background image should fit the slide/page size

I changed the behaviour to the following:
* If a picture is inserted that is smaller than the page size it will be centered to the page.
* If a picture is inserted that is bigger than the page size and the ratio of the image is nearly the same as the page it will be stretched to the page.

If the ratio differs more the image will be scaled to fit onto the page and will be shown centered.

When the featue and string freeze is lifted I would like to add functionality to modify all these parameters.

Johannes Simon committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kchart/shape/Axis.cpp:

Fix first of the eight Release Critical Bugs for the chart shape: "line/area charts must not have an offset on left and right side if not combined with bar chart"

Thomas Zander committed changes in /trunk/koffice/plugins/textshape/TextShape.cpp:

Fixes: kword freeze after click on print preview

Details: The printing framework assumes multi-threading, which allows the printing app to wait for the main thread to finish things like text layout.

After I changed the print-preview to be non-threaded due to the limitation of the print-priview-dialog I introduced the possibility for a deadlock.

Fixing this by only locking if we are called from the non-main thread.

Johannes Simon committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kchart/kdchart/src/KDChartNormalLineDiagram_p.cpp:

Fix second of The Eight Release Critical "lines in area chart must obey z values just as the areas" (Backport from KDChart 2.2.1)

Johannes Simon committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kchart/shape/Axis.cpp:

Fix third of The Eight Release Critical "use 100% and not 50% of the plot area for polar chart"

Johannes Simon committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kchart/shape:

Fix fourth of The Eight Release Critical "Remove axis title when axis is removed"

Johannes Simon committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kchart/shape/ChartConfigWidget.cpp:

Fix fifth of The Eight Release Critical "prevent user from removing first x/y axis for cartesian plots"

Johannes Simon committed changes in /trunk/koffice/kchart/shape:

Fix sixth of The Eight Release Critical "gray out or hide axis editing options when editing polar chart". I decided to gray out the options. Hiding them would make the plot area tab almost completely empty. The disabled axis configuration options could of course be replaced by something more meaningful in the future.

Networking Tools

Urs Wolfer committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdenetwork/krdc/core/remoteview.cpp:

Disable the KRDC window while opening a KWallet dialog. Otherwise the user can close the tab and KRDC would crash. KWallet does dim the window, but cannot disable inputs unfortunately.

Nick Shaforostoff committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdesdk/lokalize/src:

mostly underhood work:
-implement core functionality to support autosave (a KLockFile patch is awaiting)
-implement core functionality to support inline markup insertion and deletion.
currently undoing paired tag insertion with inclusion of other tags doesn't work properly -- due to be solved after I get some sleep.
-draw XLIFF inline markup as buttons -- much like Trados does ;)
-rename tagrange.* to catalogstring.*
-extract some code from jobs.* into newly created tmscanapi.* and tmentry.h
-cleanup headers and comments that ain't needed no more

Niels Slot committed changes in /branches/work/kturtle-objects/src:

Initial code for object oriented KTurtle. The following code should work:

forward 100
$x = turtle
$x.forward 50

This will created a second turtle, and move it 50 steps forward. At the moment only the backward and forward commands are implemented as object aware commands.

KIPI Facebook Plugin now provides also import (download) functionality
- you can download photos from any of your albums (download of albums from other users/friends may be added later)

Note: plugin was renamed from "fbexport" to "fb", and i18n catalog is named "kipiplugin_fb.po". i18n team, sorry for inconvinience.

Mathias Soeken committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdegraphics/kruler:

Changing the offset via the mouse wheel is now possible when holding the left mouse button.

When just using the wheel you can resize the ruler pixel by pixel.

When changing offset or length via wheel the new offset and length are displayed in the label on the ruler, respectively

Luka Renko committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/kipi-plugins/facebook:

Major improvements to Facebook photo download/import. You can now download the following:
- your own albums
- albums of your friends
- photos of you (tagged)
- photos of your friends (tagged)

GUI probably still needs some polish and i18n is still not final.

Luka Renko committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/kipi-plugins/facebook:

Add support for Profile Pictures (special Facebook album)
- only download is supported (upload is not possible via API :-( )

Update all i18n strings, so they should be now frozen, unless I find another feature to implement before RC2. ;-)

Current screenshot of Download dialog looks like this:

Simon Paul St James committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/apps/dolphin/src:

Initial import of Matthias's draft patch for adding video and audio previewing (similar to the file dialog) to Dolphin's metadata panel. Since Phonon is currently in-process only with the memory/ stability issues that come with this, this might have to be disabled by default - we'll see how it goes. Thanks, Matthias!

David Nolden committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kate/completion:

- If the completion was invoked automatically, hide when the completion text exactly matches one of the completions.
- Allow showing/hiding the completion-list and the argument-hints independent of each other.

This needs some usability testing with word-completion etc., but within kdevelop it is very comfortable. You can always force the completion to be shown by using the manual completion shortcut.

Crossing my fingers here but this refactor of the playback code seems to be working well in both phonon-xine and phonon-gst. Crossfade only occurs when a song ends now while the change is abrupt when manually switching tracks because I'm evil (or awesome depending on how you see it).

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

Add a BookmarkThisCapability that can be used to make individual meta items bookmarkable from the browsers instead of implicitly assuming that everythig can be bookmarked.
Use this capability to make albums and artists from Jamendo and Magnatune bookmarkable.

The capability also decides whether advanced or simple filtering ("artist:'foo' AND album:'bar'" vs. "foo" ) is used for creating bookmarks, depending on the capabilities of the collection.

Scriptable servces are now bookmarkable only if they have a search bar, and they always use the simple filtering.

This also takes most of the guesswork of of the NavigationUrlGenerator as it no longer has to guess the source of each meta item.

Alex Merry committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok:

Add MP4 replay gain tag support, providing you have libMP4v2.

If you don't have libMP4v2 and want MP4 tag reading support, you either need to install it or extend metadata/m4a to read freeform data (ie: starting with ----).

I personally have no interest in working on metadata/m4a when metadata/mp4 works perfectly well. However, if someone implements freeform data reading in metadata/m4a, I'm happy to do the rest of the work for reading replay gain tags.

Diffs: 1, 2, 3, 4 Revision 918892
Alex Merry committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok:

Read replay gain tags from more file formats.

We now read replay gain tags from every file format we can read tags from, except for RealMedia (unlikely to have replay gain tags), Audible (does anyone even write replay gain tags to Audible?) and Musepack.

The lack of Musepack support is paricularly ironic, as the reason we can't read replay gain data is that Musepack supports replay gain natively (rather than abusing metadata tags for the purpose), but TagLib won't let us at relevant fields.

Trever Fischer committed changes in /trunk/playground/sysadmin/kpackagekit/Updater:

Modified the update UI to become more intuitive.

There is now a one-click method of upgrading all packages. When the updater is first opened, the available updates aren't all selected.

This allows the user to quickly open-close the updater to see if anything interesting is ready to be updated, without being prompted to 'discard changes'.

Clicking the apply-all button applies all available updates. The user is still able to cherry pickupdates then click 'apply' or 'ok' as previously possible.

Trever Fischer committed changes in /trunk/playground/sysadmin/kpackagekit/Updater/KpkUpdate.ui:

Enable sorting in the update UI. Makes for easy cherry-picking.

Pino Toscano committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdegraphics/okular/generators/comicbook:

When loading a comicbook, try to get just the size of the various images without loading them if possible.

Instead of just fully loading the images, make use of QImageReader to query for the size if available, and in case just do the old way (full image loading).

This drastically kills the loading time of comicbook documents of at least 50%, even by 75% (and possibly something more) on the average case.

Sebastian Kügler committed changes in /trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/lionmail:

A lot of useless futzing with the layouting

I'm trying to get the sizechanges from the extenders propagated up to the popup, to no avail.
Seems like I should just put this aside, wait for Qt 4.5 and see if that changes anything.

The surgery needed to get QGraphicsLayout to properly resize when one the contents of a cell changes size looks so icky, and it's so frustrating that I'm close to just giving up for Qt 4.4 and declare it broken beyond reasonable to fix.

The combination of dynamic layout (emailmessage) inside a dynamic layout (lionmail's MailExtender) inside an Extender inside a popup seems too much for either me, Qt, or -- quite likely -- both.

I've not tried 4.5 yet, but I have high hopes for it. (If that doesn't relieve us poor Plasma hackers, I'll probably just jump off a cliff, orequivalent.)

Chani Armitage committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs/plasma:

Detlev Casanova committed changes in /branches/work/kopete/jingle-video/kopete/libkopete/avdevice:

Separate V4L1 from V4L2.

It adds V4l1Device and V4l2Device. They both inherit from VideoDevice.
It now uses enumeration of supported frame sizes for V4L2.
As some driver still don't support that, I wiil add a way to make it work anyway.

The storage of all VideoDevice's uses now pointers to VideoDevice as we want late binding on V4l1Device and V4l2Device instead of early binding on VideoDevice.

The use of pixel_format and standard enum made no sense, it now uses V4L and V4L2 enums which are as good as the old ones in VideoDevice.

Switched pixelformat storage with unsigned int instead of int, it considerably decreases the number of warnings at compile time.

Checking in the (incomplete) foundation for the first integral part of the editor interface, the property view. Unfortunately, there is no standard approach for property models with complex property types such as QRectF. Currently, we have the TypeModel (together with some basic subclasses) which represents a single property. I hope to make the EditorModel tomorrow which glues the single properties into a complete model.
