This Week...

Device notifier works in Plasma 2, powerdevil ported to KF5/Qt5. Gwenview gains RAW preview. In KIPI, new GoogleDrive and Dropbox export plugins are available. New option in configuration Appearance->Borders->Scrollbars Visibility controls scrollbar visibility in Kate. Work on urlbar in rekonq continues. There are many new optimizations: Akonadi database structure changes, memory usage in Trojita, mail directories accesses in KMail. Akonadi removes Strigi and ODBC/Virtuoso backends support.

declaration builder which we happily live with since years.

So, better than crashing, lets workaround this nasty issue.

Alex Fiestas committed changes in [kde-workspace] kcontrol/keyboard/xkb_rules.cpp:

Add a workaround to avoid a crash produced by a GCC bug

This bug:
in nth_element makes QtConcurrent::blockingFilter crash since underneath
QtConcurrent uses QtConcurrent::Median which uses nth_element.

We need the workaround so we can continue working on
kde-workspace/frameworks without having kded5 crashing.

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kde-workspace] /:

Better handling for making the compositing OpenGL context current

With QtQuick2 it's possible that the scene graph rendering context either
lives in an own thread or uses the main GUI thread. In the latter case
it's the same thread as our compositing OpenGL context lives in. This
means our basic assumption that between two rendering passes the context
stays current does not hold.

The code already ensured that before we start a rendering pass the
context is made current, but there are many more possible cases. If we
use OpenGL in areas not triggered by the rendering loop but in response
to other events the context needs to be made current. This includes the
loading and unloading of effects (some effects use OpenGL in the static
effect check, in the ctor and dtor), background loading of texture data,
lazy loading after first usage invoked by shortcut, etc. etc.

To properly handle these cases new methods are added to EffectsHandler
to make the compositing OpenGL context current. These calls delegate down
into the scene. On non-OpenGL scenes they are noop, but on OpenGL they go
into the backend and make the context current. In addition they ensure
that Qt doesn't think that it's QOpenGLContext is current by calling
doneCurrent() on the QOpenGLContext::currentContext(). This unfortunately
causes an additional call to makeCurrent with a null context, but there
is no other way to tell Qt - it doesn't notice when a different context
is made current with low level API calls. In the multi-threaded
architecture this doesn't matter as ::currentContext() returns null.

A short evaluation showed that a transition to QOpenGLContext doesn't
seem feasible. Qt only supports either GLX or EGL while KWin supports
both and when entering the transition phase for Wayland, it would become
extremely tricky if our native platform is X11, but we want a Wayland
EGL context. A future solution might be to have a "KWin-QPA plugin" which
uses either xcb or Wayland and hides everything from Qt.

The API documentation is extended to describe when the effects-framework
ensures that an OpenGL context is current. The effects are changed to
make the context current in cases where it's not guaranteed. This has
been done by looking for creation or deletion of GLTextures and Shaders.
If there are other OpenGL usages outside the rendering loop, ctor/dtor
this needs to be changed, too.

Ben Cooksley committed changes in [kde-workspace/KDE/4.11] systemsettings/classic/ClassicMode.cpp:

Track the currently active module, and don't try to change module if it is the same module.
This prevents a module from being closed and then immediately reopened.

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

Fallback to XRender if scene-graph uses GUI thread for OpenGL rendering

This is a workaround fo QTBUG-34898 and affects the VirtualBox driver
and SandyBridge Mobile. OpenGL compositing is just not possible and
crashes as soon as there is anything rendered with QtQuick. This change
should be reverted once the Qt bug is fixed.

To nevertheless use OpenGL one can as always use the KWIN_COMPOSE env
variable, though this will result in crashes. An alternative is to set
QT_OPENGL_NO_SANITY_CHECK which forces Qt into using the threaded
rendering. At least for Sandybridge this seems to be a workable solution
as it's only causing flickering in fullscreen and KWin doesn't use any
fullscreen QtQuick elements.

Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps/KDE/4.12] dolphin/src/dolphincontextmenu.cpp:

Make the "Create New..." menu in the "item context menu" work again

Since, the "Create New..."
menu in the context menu that appears when right-clicking a folder was
not a child of the DolphinMainWindow any more, but of the context menu
itself. This is the reason why the dialog that asks for a file name
when choosing one of the "Create New..." options disappeared

This patch makes sure that the main window is the parent of the
"Create New..." menu again.

Boudewijn Rempt committed changes in [calligra] /:

Remove wrong warning about non-rgb resource images

It is perfectly fine, in fact, by design that some resources (notably
brushes) are QImage::Format_Indexed, so we shouldn't warn if the user
selects one of those in the brush editor.

I have reviewed all places where KoResource::image() was used and found
that the only place where there was code expecting an RGB image was
KoResourceItemChooser::updatePreview, and that is in when we convert
an rgb image to grayscale in case the d->grayscalePreview is true.

That is only the case in the brush editor's texture selector.

This also means we can handle non-rgb patterns again -- many are mono
or indexed, and that is fine.

RAW preview in gwenview

It uses KDcraw to extract the embedded jpeg preview (most of the raw formats
contain it for the purposes of quick viewing the photos on the camera display)
or loads half-scaled preview (otherwise) so it is fast, implementing was quite
easy and theoretically it enables gwenview to support everything dcraw supports
(I haven't found a raw file that gwenview doesn't show with this patch). The
patch does not perform full demosaicing nor any tweaks (set white balance or so)
and I don't think it shall - digikam, darktable or rawtherapee are much more
suited for developing the 'digital negatives'.

The patch enables support for Nikon NEF and NRW formats, Canon's CR2 and CRW,
Pentax PEF, Sony ARW, Fuji RAF, Olympus ORF, Minolta MRW, Panasonic RW2, Samsung
SRW and Adobe DNG. If you want to try another format, just adding its MIME type
to the list in lib/mimetypeutils.cpp shall be enough.

The patch is feature-complete (generating proper thumbnails and viewing the raw
images incl. EXIF metadata) and well usable.

Make devicenotifier "mostly" work

This makes the devicenotifier work, including showing removable devices,
changing the config, changing status accordingly, reacting on newly

- plasmoid.configuration seems broken in the systray, hardcode and warn
for now
- add compactRepresentation Component
- use PlasmaCore.IconItem inside that
- wire up setPopupIconByName to this using a property

A few things need to be fixed elsewhere first, but this makes it mostly
functional, and is a nice step forward.

Optimize: Remove obsolete duchain locks and constify statics.

The locks where apparently historically required, but nowadays its
perfectly fine to operate on AbstractTypes which are not part of
the duchain (yet). This is the case for the expr. visitor, which
just creates new types. This pattern is used in other areas as well,
so I'm fairly confident I don't break things that way. I also success-
fully parsed my big session froms cratch with this patch applied.

Still, better safe than sorry, so I put it into master.

The constifying of the statics should be a no-brainer.

When pasting clip2 in the same file, only the diagram gets duplicated and not

Save memory by sharing QStrings in UDSEntry

If many UDSEntries are received from a kioslave, some of the QString
fields will often be the same for many entries in a row (for example,
the user name and the group). In this case, we can save memory by making
use of QString's implicit sharing feature for these strings.

Moreover, this commit adds a unit test that verifies that storing some
UDSEntries to a QDataStream and re-loading them works as expected.

Jan Kundrát committed changes in [trojita] /Imap:

IMAP: speed up the FETCH response parsing

Previously, the code would happily hit the LowLevelParser::parseList even on the
top-level level, which is rather expensive. Instead of that, this change parses
the individual data fields separately and takes into account the knowledge of
the expected data type. Furthermore, the order in which these fields are checked
against is changed so that FLAGS, UID and MODSEQ are checked first because these
are going to be the most widely encountered entities during mass-syncing, which
was traditionally the bottleneck.

A high-level measurement: the whole test suite takes 9.5 seconds instead of
11.5, i.e. this is a 17.5% speedup.

Dan Vratil committed changes in [akonadi] /:

Merge branch 'parttable-optimization'

The 'name' column in PartTable has been removed and it's content is
now stored in PartTypeTable table. Instead PartTable has partTypeId
column that references respective records in PartTypeTable.

This positively improves performance of SQL queries on PartTable
(which is the largest table in Akonadi, >1 million records is not
uncommon), as the database does not have to perform string
comparision against the entire table in WHERE queries, but only does
numerical comparision during JOIN, and the strings are compared against
the PartTypeTable, which is much smaller (~15 rows).

By having numerical, rather than string index and by removing massive
string duplication, size of the PartTable file on disk is reduced by
up to 30%.

To apply this changes a migration of PartTable is necessary. The
migration happens only once - the first time Akonadi is started after
update. Since the migration involves copying /all/ records in PartTable
to another table and reconstructing an index on the entire table, the
migration can take up to 10 minutes (depending on size of the table).
During that time all Akonadi-enabled applications cannot be used and
will show a busy progressbar and a message that Akonadi is being

Internally this merge introduces so called 'complex updates'. Complex
updates are implemented in DbUpdated as a Q_SLOT called
complexUpdate_%targetVersion%() and allows more complicated logic to
be involved during the update. The classical way of updating DB schema
by placing queries into dbupdate.xml file is still supported.

Use QVector for TreeItem child management

This merges a series of commits which try to improve the speed efficiency of
child housekeeping for the in-memory tree which is maintained by the IMAP model.
This is deliberately not squashed into a single commit so that we can later take
a look at which data structure is actually the best one.

Both QVector and std::vector are close contenders; however, in our case QVector
appears to be *slightly* better -- an empty QVector only takes 8 bytes, while an
empty vector takes 24 bytes on my amd64 system. This is a useful optimization on
huge mailboxes as chances are that only a very small subset of messages will be
needed any given time.

std::vector offers slightly better performance, but I'll take the small memeory
saving in this context, I guess.

Jan Kundrát committed changes in [trojita] /:

tree: Use tagged pointers to save memory

This change exploits the fact that the TreeItem structure has to be aligned,
typically to four or 8 bytes. This means that the m_parent cannot ever have the
couple of lowest bits set, so we can merge the m_fetchingState and m_parent into
a single member variable and save memory by that.

tree: only allocate memory for message metadata when actually needed

Previously, all messages in a mailbox would be allocated as soon as a mailbox
was opened. The data was not being loaded from the cache or fro mthe network,
but the memory was still being consumed. This patch move those data which are
not immediately needed into an auxiliary struct which is only allocated upon the
first request.

This cuts the memory usage of the testFlagReSyncBenchmark to 25 MB from 45 MB of
the old version.

What will be interesting to do is implementing periodical freeing of resources,
so that messages which are "not needed" anymore could be reclaimed. However,
that will require tracking the actual usage patterns of the individual items
which is rather hard to do -- the Qt MVC API unfortunately doesn't help here,
not even when using the persistent indexes.

v2: Release the full MessageDataPayload when freeing the per-message memory.
Thanks to Thomas Lübking for his suggestion, and shame on me for not doing this
in the first place. Train coding apparently didn't work this time.
