Bug Fixes

Development Tools

Sven Brauch committed changes in [kdev-python] /:

Fix two bugs with type support

1: foo = 3, 5 would not give a tuple, now does
2: all member functions which should return stuff depending on the content
type of a list or dict didn't work, no those that are supposed to do
(iteritems() for example)

Educational

Nicolas Brisset committed changes in /branches/work/kst/portto4/kst/src/libkstapp/choosecolordialog.cpp:

Make sure the list of datasources has enough vertical space, and make room for the filenames (450 pix width, resizeable).
There is one issue left but it's more difficult to solve: when you add datasources while the dialog is open, it does not get updated. In this case you have to close and reopen it.

Brief explanation of "open files" and crash fix

Added a short text describing the function to open image files. Sanity
check added for the file name to prevent crash on Id mapping if image is
from outside KPA pic root.

KDE Base

Alex Fiestas committed changes in [kde-workspace/KDE/4.8] kcontrol/randr/module/randrmonitor.cpp:

Adding eDP port as "laptop port" just like LVDS

eDP are just like LVDS but more modern, so they should be
considered as a laptop screen and inhibit when only it is
available.

This will fix the inhibition problem probably for the rest
of the affected users.

amichair thanks for the debugging :)

Alex Fiestas committed changes in [kde-workspace] /daemon/backends/upower:

If kernel newer than 2.6.36 use the backlight type instead of whitelist

If the kernel is newer than 2.6.36 it indicates the type of the
backlight wether it is a firmware/platform or raw. We should
attempt to connect to these interfaces in this order.

This should fix any compatibility issue we have right now and make this
code comaptible with drivers that may appear in the future.

FIXED-IN: 4.8.1
(cherry picked from commit f5ecaee9c40c940fe8e1bf4a7d50fe0b18e1932b)

Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps/KDE/4.8] /src:

Replace setExpanded(const QSet<KUrl>&) by expandParentItems(const KUrl&)

The use case of this function (Folders Panel) requires the expansion of
the parent items of a single URL, so it's not needed to handle a full
set of URLs in this function. Moreover, the issue that not only the
parents, but also the URLs themselves were expanded is fixed by this
commit.

Fix crash when trying to save custom equalizer presets.

This also improves the UI a little bit (deactivates unusable buttons).

Also it prohibits saving a 'Manual' profile in non-english versions.
Overwriting default presets still doesn't work in non-english versions, though.

This fixes UmsCollectionLocation to be on par with Amarok standards.
This is the first part of making the USB Mass Storage collection behave
like it should.

* Remove empty folders when deleting tracks from USB Mass Storage collection.
* Don't copy tracks to USB Mass Storage collection in move operation.
* Fix defunct aborting of transfers to USB Mass Storage collection.

Matěj Laitl committed changes in [amarok] /:

Fix failure to rip CD tracks with special characters in their title

Certain characters such as ? have a special meaning in URLs so they have
to be encoded when used in path component, but the AudioCdCollection
fails to do so and just embeds the raw track title into the URL. Thus it
is impossible to rip tracks that contain such characters in their title,
as the URL passed to the KIO subsystem is invalid.


FIXED-IN: 2.6
REVIEW: 103841

Matěj Laitl committed changes in [amarok] /:

Another approach to fix bug 291068, be more permissive

Bart originally solved the bug by enabling track dropping only
precisely on root collection rows. This is IMO too much restrictive
as it prevents you to drag tracks between 2 large expanded collections
without excessive scrolling. (something I would miss) Additionally,
there was no visual indication that the drop will not be performed.

This is my try to rework it in a way that:
* keeps drops onto artists/albums (whatever you first level
entity in collection browser is) allowed. There is a drop indicator
that clearly shows that the drop will go _between_ the entities, not
to them.
* disables drops to read-only collections
* disabled drops are indicated visually using the not-allowed mouse
cursor (the tricky part, but commented well in code)

Some more code comments not present in review request are added.

Allow the page number selector to be added to the toolbar

Ok, this is not really the review Jonathan did, i did rewrite the code partially because i did not really
want to have a new observer, but the code is heavily inspired in his patch.

Also the page number selector is not in the toolbar as the review had, it'd be silly to have it in both places
by default, so if you want to have it you have to go, edit the toolbar and add the "Page Number" action to it.

RSS feed handling

Basic handling of RSS feeds, in KDeclarativeWebView and the QML UI
- KDeclarativeWebView exports a QStringList of RSS feeds
- In the dashboard, there's now an RSS button, which copies the link of
the first feed found to the clipboard

That way, the user can paste it into the RSS reader's add dialog, that
part already works.

Would be nicer to do this through Nepomuk, automatically, but this
already provides a nice base for it

MetaFile::Album: support for embedded album cover reading & writing

FEATURES:
* Support for embedded album covers in non-collection tracks and
in USB Mass Storage collection.

This could potentially slow down performace of album loading, but my
tests show that cover art loading takes 2 - 10ms, which is really okay.
Also, the fact that track has embedded cover is cached, so there is no
penalty for tracks wihout cover.

Establish distinct SoundEffect components for each different "wav" files

Unfortunately as of now, the Qt Mobility Audio stack has a few cumbersome, but
known bugs. It involves the thing if you would like to play, and set the source
beforehand, it crashes with SoundEffect, and misbehavior with the Audio QML
Element, too. The current workaround is establish distinct components for each
sound effect. As for kanagram, it is not a huge problem because we use only
three difference SoundEffect elements.

Optimization

Development Tools

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevplatform/1.3] project/projectmodel.cpp:

drastically improve performance of ProjectFileItem::setUrl

KMimeType::findByUrl was actually not the main culprit, instead it was
iconName with the url passed. This is then checked to see if the url
points to a directory and then it is checked whether that directory
contains a .directory file defining an icon.

Since we are looking at a Project*File*Item, this is of course nothing
we need to do. Just ommitting the URL speeds this procedure up by roughly
one order of magnitude (a big project - Qt in this case - took before
about 0.8s for the iconName call alone, now it's down to about 0.04s
these numbers are accumulated over the whole project loading process)

Make moving animations less obtrusive

Only animate the moving of items if the new position is within the same

This makes the the animations when resizing the window or changing the zoom-level
a lot more pleasant.

Use createGraph in findApplicationResource.

Sebastian Trueg committed changes in [kde-runtime] nepomuk/services/storage/datamanagementmodel.cpp:

Hidden option to disable nao:created handling on graphs.

This results in much less graphs to be created which in turn means
a significant performance increase.

Further animation optimizations

- Assure a proper minimim width in the compact mode.
- Don't calculate the old position of hidden items to animate the
moving. Just show them directly.

A huge refactoring for KisNodeModel

Now the model doesn't depend on the hierarchy of the image. It uses
the hierarchy of the dummies stored in KiShapeController instead.

Some bullet points:
1) KisShapeController connects to the image and forwards the node
addition/removal signals for other recievers
2) KisNodeModel is connected to the KisShapeController and listens
to the forwarded signals. It follows that it doesn't depend on the image
directly, so there are no problems with multithreading.
2.5) KisNodeModel does not depend on sigLayersChanged() anymore.
3) KisShapeController manages when a node should be activated. It emits
the signal sigActivateNode(KisNodeSP) which is processed by the
KisNodeManager. It solved many problems at once. First, we needn't
workaround moving of nodes (KisNodeManager::Private::activeBeforeMove).
Second we are able to deprecate KisNodeManager::activateNode() now. (It'll be
done in one of next commmits).
4) Fixed KisNodeFacade::lowerNode(). Now newly activated node depends on the node
which is added in the end of the operation, so we should move exactly the node
which was requested.
5) A small refactoring for KisLayerBox is done. It was discussed with Boud on irc.


Not yet fixed issues:
1) I had to disable Bumpmap filter temporarily, because it didn't
compile with changed KisNodeModel. It'll be fixed in the following commits.
2) When loading an image with many layers KisLayerBox does not scroll to
the active layer.

Optimize the number-format logic in the Excel 2007/2010 filter.

This greatly decreases the time needed to load Microsoft Excel 2007/2010
document files.

Before loading the www.nsf.gov%2Frecovery* xlsx file took ~32 seconds
on my reference-system while after this patch loading that file takes
now ~24 seconds what equals a ~25% speed-up.

The magic that makes it possible is to fix the logic that before we
re-parsed and translated the MSExcel number-format for each cell again
and again into the ODF number-format. Now we do this rather expensive
conversation only once for every number-format. Since cells sharing
the same number-formats is more the rule then an exception and since
the cell-handling is a hotspot the patch has a huge impact on load of
Microsoft Excel 2007/2010 documents.

Improve anchoringParagraphRect top

For anchoring the top of the rect is supposed to be the point where
potential borders are drawn too.
Previously we used the point where background was filled. Without
borders that was not the correct place, so now always use the
"divider" position.

In user terms it means top is above the letters where the paragraph
spacing is counted from.

PlacemarkLayout: limit the placemark number based on used area ratio

The goal is to keep a sane limit on the number of placemarks displayed,
by design, because one doesn't want to completely fill the screen with
placemark names.

Fixups for the link popup

KDeclarativeWebView:
- delegate all links to us, we decide what goes where
- everything is loaded inside the current page -- we'll need
to check the target here, >> FIXME
- with all links intercepted from QWebPage, we can handle pressAndHold
in out own code, so wire up what we need exported to the QML WebView

FlickableWebView:
- suspendInteractive property: disables flicking temporarily, triggered
when our linkpop up opens -- this unscrews interaction with the
underlying flickable when our popup opens

LinkPopup:
- Make copy work
- Fix labels
- fix anchoring inside popup

Use Column for the timer settings so different rows for better UX

The space is very small especially in Portrait mode for the settings. The slider
might represent a bit more value than available for the relevant step size in
Portrait mode. It is essentially the same concept as for the Brightness slider
and setting. Even the word "Brightness" fills in 30-40% of the actual row, and
that is not even a long word enough in the practice. It must be at least that
font size though to be readable enough.

Initial changes for Windows support.

Here are the problems:
* PerlQt .dlls and Qt dlls use the same name ("QtCore4.dll", "QtGui4.dll").
So the PerlQt one gets loaded, but the Qt one doesn't. The only way to
get around this is to rename the .dll. But I don't want to rename all the
Perl modules, because that would break current code. So you'd end up with
the .pm files having a different name from the .dll files.

* ExtUtils::MakeMaker uses a separate file to list what functions should
be visible to outside code, specifically marking the boot functions as
visible. PerlQt uses CMake, which doesn't appear to support this,
expecting the visibility attributes to be set in the code. But Perl uses
macros to declare the XS functions, so in order to set the visibility in
the code, I have to redefine one of the Perl macros to inject
"__declspec(dllexport)".
