Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps/KDE/4.13] dolphin/src/kitemviews/private/kdirectorycontentscounter.cpp:

KDirectoryContentsCounter: do not delete currently active worker objects

Before this patch, the destructor of KDirectoryContentsCounter might
delete the worker object, which lives in another thread, while one of
its methods was still being executed. This could cause a crash. Only if
the destroyed KDirectoryContentsCounter was the last one, the worker
thread was stopped, and the destructor waited until all workers are
done.

The comment about the error message already having been shown hasn't
been true for around 15 years, as far as I can tell (git commit
7bda6331, svn revision 20718).

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kwin] /:

[scene-xrender] Do not render deco part if it doesn't end on screen

If the deco part doesn't exist or the target rect is empty, KWin should
not try to composite the deco part on the screen. It can be an empty
rect for maximized windows. If the render composite is tried it results
in an error (note - man page says "This request does never generate any
errors.").

To simplify the macro is turned into a lambda.

The root cause for this problem is that PaintRedirector creates an
XRenderPicture for those invalid geometries and this requests arleady
fails. Thus RasterXRenderPaintRedirector is adjusted to not create the
XRenderPicture in that case and set it to nullptr. For a null
XRenderPicture XCB_RENDER_PICTURE_NONE is returned.

Dan Vratil committed changes in [akonadi/1.12] /src:

Fix potential severe data loss during copy and move operations

Move and copy operations on larger sets of items can take some time, because
we need to make sure that all items have full payload stored in Akonadi. This
is necessary especially with local resources, like maildir, which have cache
timeout set to 5 minutes (after that all their payload is removed from Akonadi
and is fetched from HDD on demand, because it's cheap, fast and does not
unnecessarily duplicate emails in maildir and in database). However fetching
large amount of items via ItemRetriever takes a lot of time, sometimes it can
take even more than 5 minutes. And in such case there is a very high chance,
that the CacheCleaner will just remove the newly cached payloads from Akonadi
again and so when ItemRetriever finishes, many items have empty payload in
Akonadi again. ItemRetriever nor handlers are aware of this howerver, so they
will just make copies or moves of empty items, causing data loss.

This patch introduces CacheCleanerInhibitor, a class which when it is created
will pause the timer in CacheCleaner and resume the timer again when it's
destroyed (so usually when it goes out of scope). Also, this patch adds the
inhibitor to all handlers that use ItemRetriever, so that the the situation
described above does not happen.

The current solution is not perfect because it pauses the entire CacheCleaner
while I think it would be better to be able to temporarily 'blacklist' only
specific collections or items. That would however require much more complex
code and changes, which makes it unsuitable for 1.12 release.

I tried moving 78 000 emails from one maildir to another and all emails were
moved correctly. Move itself has many other problems (CPU, IO, memory, KMail
responsivness, etc.) but that's out of scope of this fix.

Ubuntu: Fix password dialog

Password dialog now uses a composer sheet, which also displays any
authentication errors
raised.

When launching app, if an imap account already exists then we skip the
settings page and
go straight to mailbox view where the password dialog will open
requesting password.

If an authentication error is raised we show an additional message that
explains to
either retry entering password or click cancel to return to the settings
page. We do not want the
user to be able to view mailbox without a connection. So this message
tries to make it clear what
clicking Cancel will do

Fixed loading of the EXR files with zero alpha and non-zero colors

EXR works with premultiplied colors, so it suports having zero alpha and
non-zero colors. Krita doesn't support premultiplied colors, so we just
set alpha to HALF_EPSILON on loading and reset it back to zero on saving.

This introduces subtle round-trip bugs, but they happen for alpha < 0.01
values only (which is 1%).

TODO:
Now we also need to reset default projection color of the image to black
to load the EXR properly

Add password checking to screenlocker

A new Authenticator item is introduced and exported to QML. It provides
a slot tryAuthenticate taking the password as a string. If invoked it
creates a KCheckPass object which handles the communication with the
kcheckpass binary to verify the password. If the authentication succeeded
the Authenticator emits a succeeded() signal, on failure a failed()
signal.

The authentication process is bound to a grace timer. While this timer is
active it's not possible to authenticate again. This state is exposed
with a Q_PROPERTY and used by the UI to disable the password field and
unlock button.

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [plasma-workspace] /screenlocker:

Add logind integration to screenlocker

A new class LogindIntegration is added to the screenlocker. This class
listens to the Lock and Unlock signals emitted by the session object on
the logind service.

This is integrated with the screenlocker application to start or quit the
lock when the signals are emitted. This means a locked screen is unlocked
when the Unlock signal is received from logind. Logind is a higher
authority for the screenlocker and thus follows the requests from logind.

GUI: expand previewable attachments upon first click on the attachment icon

The motivation is to make expanding of previewable attachments smooth, but at
the same time do not interfere with the way how the button has worked so far too
much.

When an attachment cannot be previewed, nothing changes and everything works as
it used to work before.

When a preview can be shown, however, clicking on the icon of the attachment at
the time the preview is collapsed will simply show the preview. When the preview
is shown, however, clicking any part of the icon will still bring up the menu as
it used to work previously.

This is an alternative implementation to review #117068.

v2: Use another approach for determining what action to take based on the actual
state of the preview in order to prevent duplicate connections. Thanks to Thomas
Lübking for pointing out a possible problem here.

Implement a magnet manager

Until now, all added magnets were being started to download immediately.
This is not a problem when the magnet download list is short. But, this
is not the case when the syndication plugin are used to download a big
list of magnets. In this scenario, KTorrent hangs and after after
a short time, fills the avaiable system memory.

This patch implements a magnet manager that will download the magnets
added to it in a sane way. It uses a number of downloading slots to
download the magnets concurrently. If a magnet is not downloaded in
a period of time, it will be pushed back at the end of the queued
magnets. The use of the timer, the maximum time of the timer and the
number of downloading slots are configurable through the advanced
settings tab in the settings dialog.

The old functionality to start, stop and delete magnets is preserved.

Increase maximum number of slots for magnet queue

The magnet queue was implemented to alleviate the network congestion
produced when a big list of magnets are downloaded at the same
time. Also, having so many magnets downloading at the same time was
pointed (prematurely and incorrectly, my fault) as the reason for some
hangs that KTorrent has sometimes when it are downloading such big list
of magnets.

As the number of concurrent downloading magnets are not directly related
with the hangs, this patch increases the number of downloading slots for
the queue manager from 20 to 100. So now, anyone can overload his
network if he want ;).

Juan Palacios committed changes in [ktorrent] /syndication:

Improve performance of several Feed methods

A list of loaded items was being used to track the status of the Feed
items. Lists has O(n) complexity, leading to bad performance in the
methods that were used mainly to check if a item was contained in it.

This patch replaces the list for a set, leading to O(1) complexity. It
also adds a local cache of feed items ids stored in a set, that has the
same performance improvement purpose while checking the validity of the
already loaded items.

Juan Palacios committed changes in [libktorrent] src/peer/peer.cpp:

Check wrong metadata_size values during peer extended handshake

Sometimes, some peers give us a value too large for metadata_size during
the handshake process. Those _extremely high_ values were the root (or
part of) of those random hangs while downloading magnets that some of us
were experiencing lately.

This patch adds a check to close the connection with the peers that send
us those metadata_size values during the handshake process. Now, the
maximum value allowed for the metadata is 4MiB.

Ubuntu: adds an secure connection option selector to Imap Settings

User can select connection type from an expandable option selector,
which updates the imapPort text field to the standard connection port.

User can still override port value in imapPort text field

Also we have to use QT_TR_NOOP for marking strings in list model
elements for translation and call translate on them in the

Qt Linguist but doesn't actually translate anything.

Ubuntu: fix insecure access to CWD when looking up files

The logic wa sapparently to make sure that we can find the QML file when run
straight from the build dir. However, it is important to use the path to the
aplication binary instead of the $CWD because otherwise Trojita would do
extremely dumb thing when called from inside an attacker-controlled directory.

This commit also adds the path to the app's exec file to the list of paths to
perform the lookup in order to preserve the desired functionality.

Disable CONDSTORE when using Gmail

Gmail's implementation of CONDSTORE is weird and breaks changes
synchronization of folders other than INBOX. Until we can figure
it out (or untile a Gmail Resource is written), we better disable
CONDSTORE when using Gmail, so that people can get to their emails.

This means that mail check with Gmail is going to be slow again, but
no other functionality is lost.
