Bernhard Beschow committed changes in [marble/KDE/4.8] /:

instantiate event loops in runner plugins rather than in RunnerTask and instantiate runners in background threads

Instantiating the event loops in the runner plugins rather than in RunnerTask resolves weired usage of QEventLoop: The synchronous runners were finished before QEventLoop::exec() was called. Somehow the finished signal of the runners still managed to quit the loop, such that exec() wouldn't block. Until Qt 4.8 we might just have been lucky...

Instantiating runners in the background thread avoids thread affinity issues wrt. to QEventLoop. In particular, QEventLoop instances would block a background thread forever because calling quit() or exit() wouldn't cause exec() to return.

Peter Penz committed changes in [kde-baseapps] /src/kitemviews:

Do a synchronous layout for dynamic item sizes when changing the geometry

This prevents a delayed update when resizing the window e.g. in the details
view. As no animated item position changes can happen for dynamic item sizes
the synchronous relayout is fine from a performance point of view.


FIXED-IN: 4.8.0

Peter Penz committed changes in [kde-baseapps] /src/kitemviews:

Disable smooth-scrolling dependent on the graphics-effect level

If the graphics-effect-level has been set to NoEffects (systemsettings -> Appearance
-> Style -> Fine Tuning), the smooth scrolling in Dolphin will be disabled.

Additionally the duration for the smooth-scrolling has been decreased from 200 ms
to 100 ms to reduce the lag.

A wrong calculation of the end-value has been fixed that might trigger
a wrong position of the content.

Diffs: 1, 2, 3 Revision 038d7ed...
Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps] /src/kitemviews:

If an item is clicked to trigger it, clear the rest of the selection

Note that the clearing is not done on mouse press, but on mouse release.
The reason is that there are situations when multiple items are selected
and pressing the mouse on one of them should not clear the selection
(e.g., drag and drop of multiple items).

FIXED-IN: 4.8.0
(cherry picked from commit 9f711b5f2e1d1fd856cd6b033e6adb96f9b46d8a)

Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps] dolphin/src/kitemviews/kitemlistview.cpp:

Do not make items invisible when turning off previews

This commit fixes a problem in KItemListView::doLayout(): This function
assumed that firstVisibleIndex is a constant.
However, if the view is scrolled to the bottom with previews enabled,
and then previews are disabled (and the icon size is much smaller
without previews), this function changes the scroll offset, which also
changes the the first visible index. Using the unchanged variable causes
trouble later on (i.e., it makes items which are actually inside the
view area invisible).
lastVisibleIndex is not needed before the scroll offset change and is
const after that, so its calculation is moved a few lines down.

kwin: fixing high cpu usage bugs

In some unfortunate situations it is possible that a window is deleted

especially troublesome for effects that reference the deleted window.

Bug 290050: Ensure that Akonadi resources exist for all alarm types

If no Akonadi resource exists for any alarm type (active, archived,
template) on KAlarm startup, create a default alarm calendar
resource. This ensures that if by error a calendar type is missing,
the user can still operate KAlarm without needing to manuallly
create calendars.

David Faure committed changes in [kdepim-runtime] /imap:

Rework handling of connection failures, to fix crashes.

Testcase: unplugging my network cable, waiting for timeouts, plugging it
back again later, check mail.

* Port from deprecated connectionLost to stateChanged, which has the major
benefit of not confusing "failure to connect" with "we lost our connection"
(due to KIMAP::Session emitting both signals for compat reasons).

* Failure to connect is now handled in the result slot for the LoginJob,
rather than via the connectionFailed signal, since the first one is called
anyway.

* Make sure we emit connectDone on error, even if m_initialConnectDone is true,
so that the resource sets itself to offline (rather than it attempting the
same task over and over again!).

* Don't set the resource status to Broken when it's simply offline
(login failure due to "could not connect" is handled separately now)

* Make sure not to pop up a password dialog when couldn't connect; this
is different from "we could connect but the server refused login".

Requires kdepimlibs commit acdb0f7e50 for ERR_COULD_NOT_CONNECT.

This also makes it possible to undo/redo the changing of anchoring of shape.
It makes sure that all is done inside a command so that it is undoable.

This also fixes a crash that happens when you do the following:

- Type some text
- Insert a rectangle.
- Make it anchored to paragraph
- Undo until the rectange is removed
- Insert a new rectangle.
- Anchor it to the paragraph.

Cristian Oneț committed changes in [kmymoney] kmymoney/dialogs/kbackupdlg.cpp:

- Use KFileDialog::getExistingDirectoryUrl() instead of KDirSelectDialog::selectDirectory() which clearly has some platform issues on
Windows.

This results in the same behaviour on Linux but on Windows it means that the native directory selection dialog will be opened.
I think this solution is better then waiting for a fix in kdelibs on Windows for the following reasons:
1. In the docs of KDirSelectDialog::selectDirectory() it is stated that it's equivalent with KFileDialog::getExistingDirectoryUrl()
2. The native directory selection dialog works on Windows while the KDE dialog needs a patch to avoid an infinite loop (will contact the KDE on
Windows team regarding this)

Ralf Engels committed changes in [amarok] src/context/engines/lyrics/LyricsEngine.cpp:

Fix lyrics autorefresh in some cases.

There were some issues mostly when playing streams. Lyrics would stuck
with empty text and wouldn't autorefresh until the track was changed or
manually refreshed. That's because cachedLyrics() is always empty for
streams. Therefore it makes sense to additionally check if either artist
or track title have changed as well.

REVIEW: 102110

Ralf Engels committed changes in [amarok] /playlist/view/listview:

Update playlist selection at appropriate time when text changed in search

When "show only matches" is enabled the listview tries to select the track
and emit a signal about whether or not it matched before the proxy timeout
has triggered the update. This happens to work anyway when additional
keystrokes are narrowing the results but causes problems when I typo. For
example, in my play list, "laz" returns 15 results and "lazz" returns 0.
If I then backspace the second "z", it doesn't select the top track and
the lineedit widget still appears in red.

This is a fairly direct solution: moving the relevant selection code to
the timeout handler with some member vars to store the required arguments.
If there's a better way to go about it please let me know and I'll try to
bring it up to scratch.

MetaFile: guess album artist as in SQL collection scanner, compilations

Call albumArtist = ArtistHelper::bestGuessAlbumArtist( albumArtist,
artist, genre, composer ); afer the data are read from file tags.

This makes album artist field consistent for tracks in Local collection
and tracks in file browser or drag & dropped to Amarok playlist, but it
has some downsides:
* Amarok will essentially lie about what album artist is assigned to a
track, most notably will replace empty album artist by track artist
and will replace "Various Artists" by empty artist.
* Editing album artist will be strange in corner cases: in particular
if user sets album artist to "Various Artists", it will be written
to file tags as-is, but displayed as empty album artist. Other case
would be when user sets album artist to empty string, but this is
currently prevented due to a bug/feature in TagDialog.

(every occurrence of "Various Artists" also accepts localized version
of the string)

Above change is needed for upcoming "MemoryCollection: use also album
artist as identifying key in album map" change for UmsCollection, but
if someone opposes, similar change can be made on UmsCollection level.

Also, implement MetaFile::FileAlbum isCompilation() which is now easy
as it can return albumArtist.isEmpty()

DIGEST: unify album artist handling in Amarok

Matěj Laitl committed changes in [amarok] /:

MemoryCollection: use also album artist as identifying key in album map

This has some far-reaching consequences which I believe are only
positive, most notably Amarok is able to differentiate between 2 albums
with same name but different album artists in USB Mass Storage
collection and in "new" iPod collection. This unifies album artist
handling across MemoryCollection and SqlCollection, 2 major collection
storage implementations in Amarok.

Technically, AlbumMap is changed from:
typedef QMap<QString, Meta::AlbumPtr> AlbumMap;
to:
class AlbumMap : public QMap<Meta::AlbumKey, Meta::AlbumPtr>

with insert(), remove(), value(), contains() QMap methods hidden and
reimplemented for convenience and to prevent coding mistakes. (you no
longer can add album under wrong key)

This change is tested to work with new iPod collection, UMS collection
(depends on previous "MetaFile: guess album artist as in SQL collection
scanner, compilations"), all tests still pass.

Only area that received just very basic testing are online
service collections that are also affected by this change.

Docstrings and comments extended thanks to suggestions by Maximilian
Kossick.

DIGEST: Albums with same name but different album artist are now
correctly separated in USB Mass Storage, iPod and various
online service collections.

Laszlo Papp committed changes in [kdelibs/frameworks] /dialogs:

Use KCoreConfigSkeleton argument type where possible inside the KConfigDialog

Use case: there are applications, like kanagram, which would be nice to have
running on several platforms, as in handsets; for instance Harmattan on N9. It
would be nice to use the same settings code generation in certain cases for all
the platforms. The additions of KConfigSkeleton on the top of
KCoreConfigSkeleton are the font and color settings which are currently not
used in couple of KDE applications. Hence, it should not be mandatory. The
kdeui module is unlikely welcome on mobile platforms, especially in appstores
with its sizes and complexity for no real need.

KConfigDialogManager has apparently already two constructors (ie.: the need
already arised previously for such an approach); one with KConfigSkeleton
argument type, and yet another with KCoreConfigSkeleton. It looks like a
situation where the KCoreConfigSkeleton version was added for good.

The KConfigDialog constructor does not handle KCoreConfigSkeleton argument
type yet; it has probably somehow been missed so far. Changing the current
constructor to KCoreConfigSkeleton usage is a good way because it does not
cause any API break; a simple recompilation is enough in client applications.

Laszlo Papp committed changes in [kanagram] /:

Modularize the whole kanagram tree into engine, desktop and harmattan for now

1) All the relevant CMakeLists.txt files were refactored according to their new
tasks inside the relevant subfolders

2) FindKanagramEngine.cmake was added for find the functionality (library)
easily sinde the frontend codes.

3) There was a kanagramharmattansettings.kcfgc addition because we cannot go
only for KCoreConfigSkeleton usage because the KConfigDialog only accepts
KConfigSkeleton for the time being. It is not even fixable inside the KDE 4.X
series, just only for frameworks.

4) We now use the VISIBILITY option with the KConfig XT technology in order to
get the generated KanagramSettings class exported. Otherwise, it would not be
available for the frontends.

5) Messages.sh was also moved to the desktop frontend because that is now
available only. Nevertheless, it is better to keep a separate Messages.sh file
for each frontend to avoid the complexity in the future.

6) A typical "kanagram_engine_export.h" file was added for defining the export
and import symbols so that they can be used inside the game engine itself.

7) The previous kanagram.desktop file is obviously now being moved to the
desktop frontend folder since the Harmattan and other players are gonna have
such a file with distinct contents.

There are also other minor changes, but the codebase is now feasible for getting
used with other frontends easily. There are still tasks left, like making a
proper versioning for the shared library and so on, but it is better to apply
such patches in different commits since this patch is already very huge itself.
