Marcel Wiesweg committed changes in [digikam] /:

Fix a regression introduced by the ability-to-exclude-tags patch, and make some stuff work (again):
- use a special "add exclude" mode only enabled in models that need it. Fixes regression 267421
(partial check state treated as fully checked)
- albumDecorationRole is overridden by derived classes, so there is no sense in doing the overlay
painting in this method in the parent class. Provide a tool method which is called from the children,
now the + or - is visible.

Marcel Wiesweg committed changes in [digikam] libs/widgets/common/dcategorizedview.cpp:

Use improved scroll position hint to preserve scroll position across resize operations.
As we use topmost left, try to position that one on the top again.

KDE Base

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kde-workspace] kwin/scene_opengl_egl.cpp:

Call setupOverlay also from GLES backend

This fixes my issue that mouse events are eaten on R600G.
I am a little bit surprised that it worked at all with nouveau.
Now my issues are fixed and finally, finally my primary system uses
the free driver stack (though only GLES).

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kde-workspace] libs/plasmagenericshell/backgrounddialog.cpp:

This fixes the wrong permissions on the created file, and will make it
possible to fix undo too (not done yet).

Had to deprecate methods that return a CopyJob pointer, but the main
method pasteClipboard is unchanged.

Old QT_NO_MIMECLIPBOARD code removed, unmaintainable and wrong.

Nicolas Lécureuil committed changes in [kdelibs/KDE/4.6] plasma/corona.cpp:
Jacopo De Simoi committed changes in [kde-workspace] krunner/krunnerdialog.cpp:

Delay the call to matchSessionEnded on hiding

The default interface hides the dialog before running
the match; some runners (most notably the activities runner)
need to be prepped in order to successfully run the match.

Therefore we delay the matchSessionEnded call until next event cycle
so that the runner gets down only after running the match.

Fixes bug that doesn't get triggered currently, but new changes coming
does. Was calculating year to use if year not yet parsed, just wasn't
actually using it. Up to now that was fine as the monthName() function
didn't care, but next change does a validity check and it was failing.

KDE-PIM

Thomas McGuire committed changes in [kdepimlibs] /:
Volker Krause committed changes in [kdepim-runtime] /imap:

Try to recover from UIDNEXT mismatch.

In case the IMAP resource ends up with an mismatch in current and last seen
UIDNEXT values, it tries to recover from that with a full re-download. With
online IMAP that's not too bad, but for the offline case this can be a huge
problem. This patch tries to do the recovery in a less drastic way, given
some conditions are met.

The assumption is that this case can happen because of an equal amount of
emails being added and deleted while we were not looking. Then the message
count check passes (we still have the same amount locally and remotely),
but the UIDNEXT check fails. Given UIDs are strictly ascending, the
maximum amount of changed messages is (newUidnext - oldUidnext). So,
instead of downloading everything, we now only download that many messages,
since download is done by sequence number, we are guaranteed to get the
newest ones and thus we cover all new messages. Deletion of the old ones is
done by the subsequent flag fetch step, just as in the normal case.

Thiago's problem shown in bug 259151 is slightly different, there we do the
same modification locally and remotely but fail to obtain the new UID due
to the server not supporting UIDPLUS and the message-id being non-unique.
However, this should work with the above approach as well.


REVIEW: 101142

Volker Krause committed changes in [kdepim-runtime] /imap:

Recover from unknown UID after APPEND or COPY.

Currently, if unable to determine the UID of a message after an APPEND or
COPY command, we abort the task and leave the Akonadi item with an empty
RID. During the next sync, the message we added to the server is discovered
and downloaded, duplicating it locally. Items with empty RIDs are protected
against deletion during a sync, since they are assumed to not be on the
server yet. This is a safety feature, but gets in to the way of automatic
recovery here.

So, this patch fixes this by assigning an arbitrary random RID in this
case. Note that this only happens if all UID detection attempts fail, not
if e.g. the actual APPEND or COPY failed. Assuming that those commands
report errors correctly, this should be safe.

C. Boemann committed changes in [calligra/text-layoutrestructure-boemann] /textlayout:

Fixed crash caused by Qt ending the layout process of one block ehen you start
it on another block.
If yo later come back and try to contine the layout of the first block it is
no longer possible. We needed that in tables where we do columns in parallel.

Solution: create a restartLayout method that essentially recreates the layout by
quickly copying the old lines and leaves the layoutprocess so we can continue.

Set directory mode for renamer's "music folder".

Γιώργος Κυλάφας submitted this patch for the JuK file renamer to use the proper
"directory mode" of KFileDialog for the music folder selection in the File
Renamer configuration.

It's *much* appreciated -- this represents the first non-Michael Pyne
contribution to JuK since about 8 months ago (and the one before that was 20
months ago).

I will backport to 4.6.3.

Harald Sitter committed changes in [phonon-vlc] /:

"fix" subtitle control in dragon player

It actually is more of a patch for the problem as the libphonon design is heavily flawed in that it exposes MediaController specific descriptors to the world also via the backend. Now as the Backend is a singleton but the MC is not, there is a bit of a scope problem... The present solution thus introduces a global overlord master subtitle manager where each MC needs to store its subtitles. Additionally libvlc seems broken as it reports completely bogus SPU ids \o/

The code at hand needs refactoring && bugfixing && cleanup && documentation && *whine*

Fix macaddress showing up if not set, introduced with
aae4ef730cdd4314be1a7ac043b1be59868b74aa.
Resizing the QByteArray gives us 6 uninitialized elements, which can be
converted to a string. This results in a completely unrelated mac
address showing up on all connection which are restricted to "Any".
Thanks Ilia Kats for fixing that.

Rewrite the KScanOption/KScanDevice/KScanOptSet classes

This is for a cleaner API and to finally eliminate the global
data of KScanDevice. A KScanOption now remembers the KScanDevice
that it belongs to, so that it can perform SANE operations.

Only the KScanDevice may construct a KScanOption, all other callers
must obtain (and optionally create) one via KScanDevice::getOption().
There is only a single instance of a KScanOption object for a given
scanner parameter.

Since without the global data there can now be more than one
KScanDevice, this is no longer a singleton class and one can be
constructed in the usual way (although Kooka only ever creates
one at a time).

The 'apply' operation is performed by the KScanOption instead of
KScanDevice, so the KScanOption now has 4 orthogonal operations 'set',
'apply', 'reload' and 'get'.

A KScanOptSet stores only the name-value pair of the options, not
the complete KScanOption object. There is therefore no need for
KScanOption to have a copy constructor or assignment operator, which
in turn means that it does not need the hack for maintaining common
gamma table values.

These 3 classes, plus ScanParams, now have complete API documentation.

KCalendarSystem - Narrow Month/Day Name Support

Add support for Narrow Name format for Month and Week Day Names. This
can be obtained either using the standard monthName() and weekDayName()
functions with the new KCalendarSystem enum values, or using the
formatDate variant with the KLocale::NarrowName enum.

Note that the Narrow Name is not unique and so can only be used for
display and not input.

Clean up the month and weekday i18n calls to use a standard context
format, and tweak a few of the names used. Hopefully not too much
work for the translators.

Prefer growisofs to wodim for DVD/BluRay burning.

K3b 2 defaults to cdrecord for all burning tasks, including DVDs and BluRay
discs. Unfortunately, it also does this when cdrecord is actually wodim. This
is a bad idea, because wodim's DVD burning code is not the "ProDVD" code in
Jörg Schilling's current cdrecord releases, but a much older, buggier and
basically unmaintained DVD patch. We cannot ship the ProDVD code in wodim
because of licensing conflicts: That code was never released under the GPL, it
was relicensed directly from its original proprietary license to the CDDL. But
wodim is GPLed, and cannot be relicensed to the CDDL, in fact this was the
whole reason for the fork: Jörg Schilling's cdrecord distributes mixed CDDL and
GPL code linked together. So the DVD code in wodim is based on an ancient
experimental community-contributed DVD support patch for cdrecord (from the
times where ProDVD was entirely proprietary). So it's a bad idea to use wodim
for DVDs. As for BluRay discs, those aren't currently supported by wodim at
all; K3b should detect this, but still, it's better to explicitly default to
growisofs there too, in case wodim grows some experimental BluRay support.

One concrete known issue with wodim's DVD burning code is that it fails to burn
dual-layer DVD+Rs: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=610976 . But
chances are there are many more DVD burning bugs in wodim, which are unlikely
to get fixed promptly.

Growisofs, on the other hand, is designed specifically for DVDs and BluRay
disks, doesn't have licensing issues and has been used successfully for DVDs
for years (in fact, K3b 1 always used growisofs for DVDs).

This patch makes K3b default to growisofs for all DVD or BluRay burning tasks
if cdrecord is actually wodim.

bluetooth connection like this:

networkmanagement_configshell create -type bluetooth --specific-args
00:11:22:33:44:55,rfcomm0

This command will block until the org.bluez.Device.Connect method for
00:11:22:33:44:55 is executed. After that, it will detect the modem
device from ModemManager (using rfcomm0) and create the bluetooth connection.

Change 00:11:22:33:44:55 to your cell phone's bluetooth hardware address
and rfcomm0 to the string returned by org.bluez.Device.Connect.

Once the connection is created NetworkManager will detect it and enable
the /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/<device sequence number> path.

The bluetooth connection and
/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/<device sequence number> are not
listed in Plasma NM main window. I will fix that in soon.

The connection is listed in the connection editor, you can change it to
autoconnect or not for instance.

Optimize the calculation of the closest point on the route.

Make use of the bounding box of each route segment as a quick estimate
of the minimum distance to a given point (current location). Cache the
last visited segment as an educated guess for the segment with the
smallest distance. Only calculate the distance to all points of a
segment if its minimal distance is smaller than the guessed minimum
distance. In the average case only one segment has to be fully
evaluated to determine the smallest distance.

Reduces the cpu consumption by about 9% (callgrind, large routes).

PlacemarkLayout: tile level caching of Placemarks

More popular placemarks get to high-level "tile level", less popular go to low-level ones.
For a given BBox, calculating the "Tile pyramid" and getting placemarks from those TileIds provides a small subset of placemarks that should get rendered.

Some figures: we have currently c.a. 22000 placemarks, and most BBox provides an 10ish TileIds Pyramid, leading so c.a. 400 placemarks.
The scalability of filtering placemarks sounds quite obvious.

Tweaking level, placemark popIdx, and radius to level is TODO:
- radius to level table (used to determine at which radius which level should be used),
- popIdx to level (used to seed placemarks to level according to their PopIdx)
- filtering the first 300 placemarks to display (should stay untouched)

Bernhard Beschow committed changes in [marble] src/lib/StackedTileLoader.cpp:

StackedTileLoader: also use expired tiles from cache (rather than throwing them away and loading them from disk again)

When an outdated tile is read from disk, new data is requested from the internet. As long as this data is not available, it does not make sense to re-read the tile from disk. Since the tile is updated in the cache as soon as the new data is available, there is neither a need for erasing expired tiles from the cache, nor to reload the tile from disk.

Parker Coates committed changes in [kdelibs] kfile/kfilewidget.cpp:

Increase intuitiveness of KFileDialog filtering.

This patch attempts to improve the usefulness and usability of
KFileDialog's filter field when in Opening mode.

Firstly, if the filter text isn't:
* the display name of one of the filters passed to the dialog or
* one or more space separated mimetype specifiers (containing a '/') or
* one or more space separated file globs (containing '*', '?' or '['),
we convert the text to a glob by prepending and appending asterisks.
This lets the user enter a piece of text (without having to know any
glob patterns) and see only the files whose names contain that text,
much the same as they would when filtering in Dolphin.

Secondly, the filtering updates on the fly as the filter text is typed.
Previously, the filtering updated only when Return was pressed, which
differs from the behaviour of most of KDE's other filter boxes. The old
behaviour is especially confusing when one clicks the small clear button
embedded in the combobox, because it clears the box, but the filtering
is unchanged until the user goes to the keyboard to press Return.

DIGEST:

Sebastian Kügler committed changes in [plasma-mobile] /:

zero cache misses in my test set

- we need to be more strict about the requested source, otherwise the
nameing of the cached files changes due to re-conversion to QUrl,
which might add slashes, etc. So store the source separately, and thus
make sure one source always corresponds to one cached file.

This implements the second part of the caching, where we're currently
going through a .png file read from disk, so we can reference these
pictures in the QML code.

Needs cleanup, which follows in the next commit.

Hardcoding that much of HTML code in a shell script was very ugly, and
was even more so due to the amount of escaping that needed to be done

the generated inline JavaScript code was also wrong).

The searchbox code now lives in api_searchbox.html, which means it is
