Issue 1

9th April 2006 by Danny Allen

This Week...

KFileDialog becomes aware of media:/ and system:/. New icons and other fixes in amaroK. New privacy features and multiple webcam connection support for the MSN protocol in Kopete. kcmwifi removed in /trunk (to be replaced by Solid in KDE 4). Kerry, the KDE Beagle frontend, is imported into KDE SVN.
Welcome to the first issue of the new KDE Commit-Digest! It has been just over six months since the last digest by Derek, and this is the first issue of many from me. Enjoy :)
Inge Wallin announces the release of KOffice 1.5:
The KOffice team is proud to announce KOffice version 1.5. With this release, KOffice starts its ascent into the office suite hall of fame in the company of and MS Office.

Native Support for the OpenDocument File Format

KOffice was the first to support, and now with 1.5 the second office suite to announce full support for OpenDocument as the default file format. It is also the first one not based on the code base, which makes ODF into a true industry standard. KOffice 1.5 is therefore the version that lets enterprises and organizations all over the world choose the office suite that fits their needs best.

The spread of the OASIS OpenDocument File format (ODF) is widely regarded as one of the most important developments in the whole IT industry right now. It will give users world-wide the opportunity to control the future of their own data and also ensure that all documents can always be read at any time in the future.

KOffice 1.5 offers native ODF support for the important productivity applications KWord (.odt), KSpread (.ods), and KPresenter (.odp). In addition to that, the supporting applications KChart (.odc) and KFormula (.odf) also support ODF, although not yet fully.

Great care has been taken to ensure interoperability with other office software that supports OpenDocument, most notably We acknowledge, however, that the ODF support and interoperability is not yet perfect. We hope to be able to quickly identify and fix the incompatibilities that do exist in the upcoming 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 bugfix releases.

The principal improvements over KOffice 1.4 are:More information about this major new release of KOffice is available at:
Philip Rodrigues discusses a proposal for improvements to WhatsThis? context help dialogs in KDE 4:
At the moment, tooltips, whatsthis help and documentation are generally produced and presented to the user quite separately. In the HCI team proposal, they're brought together in a sort of natural progression of increasing detail: single-word or -phrase tooltips -> single paragraph whatsthis -> detailed docs. So, tooltips will present a way of progressing to whatsthis, which will present a way of progressing to the full documentation. This is one element of the proposal...

...The second element is to improve the usability of the whatsthis windows themselves. At the moment, the whatsthis help appears in "bubbles" which disappear as soon as you click anywhere. That's obviously not ideal, so in the HCI team design, they're "upgraded" to full windows, so you can keep them open while following the instructions in them, have multiple whatsthis windows open, move the windows around, and so on.

More detailed information about this proposal can be found in this design document (3.1 MB PDF file).

I'd like to ask to go for another partitial lift of the freeze to add some minor stuff for KDE 3.5.3. I for one would like to seize it to integrate Will's great online status patches to KDE PIM and possibly add new ones for other application in that module where appropriate (knode comes to my mind).

Details on that: SUSE/Novell has undergone a huge effort to make integrate network manager, an effort to control your network connections from the desktop, with KDE. network manager can signal the systems current online status so applications can react properly, i.e. kmail will not try to send or fetch messages.

SUSE 10.1, SLED 10 as well as Kubuntu Dapper are three distributions that will support network manager. Others are likely to follow (I for one am already drawn to it due to its ease of use :). I therefore think it's a good idea to have this technology in KDE 3.5 to let our users benefit from that advantage, since KDE 4.0 is still far away for our users and and this feature enhancement is quite a low hanging fruit, thanks to Will's work.

Will has written a nice set of patches which are currently only applied to SUSE rpms. One patches the networkstatus kded service, which currently still resides in kdelibs, to listen to network manager via DBUS and then inform attached applications via DCOP (the DCOP-API is in place for quite a while IIRC). The other patches kmail and the SLOX-resource to remain to properly communicate with networkstatus.

KMail is technically well prepared for offline handling since 3.5 and it would be easy to add it to other applications in KDE PIM that need it without creating a big GUI string mess. If other application maintainers care, we could also move it to libs, but I think that's quite a drastic change for a minor release. Still, it would be nice to have since Kopete or even Konqueror/khtml could profit from it. Since we're talking about a DCOP service, the move is not strictly needed anyway.

What's your opinion

a) on the freeze lift?

b) on the network manager changes?

This week has seen the appearance of several automated source code quality check tools: Krazy and a service provided by Coverity. In the words of Adriaan de Groot:
...automated tools plus careful human filtering is a very effective way to fix (small) bugs. As you can see in the -core-devel thread, this has led to dozens of fixes already. I hope the Coverity checks will bring similar improvements in the quality of KDE code in general.

Make rendering text work by letting render_svg_text layout
it's children - just a _first_ start. Still not perfect.

Though the clipping problem is gone and text can be painted
everywhere now...

Nikolas Zimmermann committed changes in /branches/work/khtml-svg/rendering:

Revert my last commit and "hack around it for real".

As we don't participate in layouting yet, all text is placed at
x/y 0, so in a paint event which is ie. clipped to 0x0-504x128
we need to be able to paint ouside that area. I'm aware this
is a hack, but it works for now, until the real solutions is
discussed with the WebKit guys.


Mark Kretschmann committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok:

Alphabetical separators for the collection browser. Many thanks for the patch go to Christian Hoenig <>.Note: I've removed the part of the patch that added an additional config option, as I thought this was unecessary. IMHO we could also remove the button in the browser toolbar for disabling the separators. Who would do that anyway.

- adapt fake backend and make effects more modular (I'm feeling the urge to
implement a real backend instead of a fake one... have to resist)

wave now which can be processed by a delay effect (with time,feedback and
level controls) and then dumped into /dev/dsp :)

Further work on manual device addition. Getting close. Todo: fix klineedits being clear seeming to not be equal to null,

Jeff Mitchell committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Many changes and improvements. Manual device management is pretty much at completion, except for per-device
mount/unmount/transcode settings.

Current known bugs:

1. Sometimes devices that are configured will be detected as new. This seems to be a bug in KConfig, and
has not yet been reported by anyone else, so will not be looked into unless it is.

2. When clicking Autodetect, it detects both manually-configured devices and HAL/DBUS autodetected devices. This should
be fixed (maybe by checking if a device is in the delete map when detecting?)

Also, a new dcop call that displays the current device list as known to the Device Manager (both autodetected and manual

Michael Pyne committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdesdk/scripts/kdesvn-build:

Try to be more intelligent with modules that have a different kdedir setting.

Now if a module has a different kdedir than kdelibs, the kdelibs kdedir setting will be
appended to the end of KDEDIRS. i.e. if kdebase had kdedir = /usr and kdelibs had kdedir =
/home/kde/kde, the KDEDIRS for building kdebase would be "/usr:/home/kde/kde"

I'm hoping this helps to fix or at least identify the problem going on in bug 122843.

Matthias Kretz committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs:

Prefix generated header files with ui_ for designer4 ui files.
Adjust the includes accordingly (I hope I found all of them, at least kdelibs
compiles here - except for kate/tests/arbitraryhighlighttest.cpp)

Be careful when using foo.ui, foo.h, foo.cpp now, though because uic puts
a very general include guard macro in the generated file: FOO_H
Most people (and kde-devel-vim.vim's ,i) will use the same macro for foo.h.
This will hopefully be fixable when Trolltech extends uic so that we don't
have to postprocess the output anymore. (The -o option of uic creates the
include guard from the name of the output file.)

Frank Osterfeld committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdepim/akregator/src/libsyndication:

improved content type guessing for RSS ("is it HTML, is it plain text? or something in between?").
It does the detection per feed now instead of per item, which is
both faster and more reliable. This needed some changes behind the scenes, so item and document
need private classes now. to be safe, they should be just declared for every class,
regardless of whether they would be currently used in the implementation or not.

Robert Knight committed changes in /branches/koffice/1.5/koffice/kspread:

Fix slow creation of column/row series and slow undo/redo of changing text of many cells. Hackers reading this note that setRegionPaintDirty should be called before any operation which is likely to change the appearence of a large number of cells. Since setRegionPaintDirty scans a linear list of regions to determine whether or not a newly-added cell is already marked for repainting, it becomes very inefficient if cells are added to the list one at a time rather than as a single large region at the start of the operation. In the future perhaps setRegionPaintDirty should use a quad-tree instead of a linear-list of regions.
