Issue 35

3rd December 2006 by Danny Allen

This Week...

Substantial work and improvement in the font installation KControl module. Support for OpenDocument annotations in Okular. New Interface ideas and consistency work in Amarok. KTabEdit gets better support for the 'Guitar Pro' file format. Iceland map added to KGeography. Work starts on a new keyboard rendering engine in KTouch, and on a model/view interface implementation for KVocTrain. Early work on a Phonon backend for KsCD. Speed optimisations in Strigi, with experimental probing for the feasibility of leveraging the inotify daemon. Experimental code sees Akonadi become searchable through Strigi. Kross, the multi-language application scripting framework, loses its dependency on KOffice and moves into kdelibs as the cornerstone of scripting in KDE 4.
Jos van den Oever concludes a recent developmental release of Strigi by writing about the recent developments in the index-and-search powerhouse:
Strigi has seen a lot of work in the last few weeks. Progress was achieved mainly in two areas:

Behind the scenes, the code has been reorganised to make the indexing of data highly configurable. This reorganisation has allowed one of the programs that comes with Strigi to receive a significant increase in speed. The program 'deepfind' is a program that lets you find files within emails, ZIP files, DEB and RPM packages, and a wide variety of other formats. It uses the streaming classes of Strigi to handle these formats. Users of deepfind quickly find that they become dependent on it and cannot live without it anymore! The new configurability of Strigi allows deepfind to be significantly sped up, because Strigi's indexing code will no longer extract all possible information, as it does while indexing, but will recurse into nested files and only extract filenames.

Even though using D-Bus makes it easy to call Strigi from any program, so far, uptake in KDE applications is not what I had hoped it would be. So I have written convenience classes for integrating Strigi into external applications. Developers that want to make calls to Strigi from their application can simply link to a small library that takes care of communication and provides a nice queue which makes querying fast and ensures it does not block the GUI. What is required now is for KDE developers to start playing with Strigi and incorporate it into all programs where they deem it useful. Currently efforts are underway in enhancing Akonadi, KHelpCenter and Kerry in this way. Strategically, the most important application to enhance is Konqueror and I hope someone will pick up this gauntlet soon.
Aaron J. Seigo reinforces the arrival of the integration crossroads within KDE 4 in a recent rallying cry: a side note, what we need now are application developers taking employing things like solid in their apps to be aware of events like network link droppage or phonon for simple multimedia support. these may end up being post-4.0 release features for some (many?) apps, but they need to happen to expose the power of these frameworks in a practical way to users (e.g. us ;) and app developers should start thinking about them sooner rather than later.
With the highly-anticipated movement of the Kross application scripting framework into kdelibs this week, the time is rapidly approaching where all neccessary fundemental technologies - including the pillars of Akonadi, Phonon, Solid, Decibel and Plasma - are finally in place, allowing developers to implement the functionality of the future desktop which KDE 4 has been repeatedly defined as.

The next few months should be an exciting realisation of maturity, functionality and integration.

John Tapsell committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/ksysguard/gui/SensorDisplayLib:

Number of horizontal lines is off by one, plus it no longer tries to 'smart' about showing the top bar, plus fix integer rounding errors ( a*b/c is better than
a*(b/c) when using ints! )

This was fixed in kde 3.5 as well in commit revision 608911 so closing bug.

John Tapsell committed changes in /branches/KDE/3.5/kdebase/ksysguard/gui/SensorDisplayLib/

Mostly fix the selection of processes. It's impossible to fix 100% because of stupid stupid race conditions that I cannot avoid without rewriting the search box.

This is inherently fixed (i,e. fixed by design) in kde4.

Closing bug. It's as good as it's going to get.

Thank you Xtracto for a clear bug report with exact instructions to repeat :-)

Robert Knight committed changes in /branches/KDE/3.5/kdebase/konsole:

Correct calculation of colour values in 256-colour mode. The previous code resulted in colours which were too dim. Patch by Tom Schumm


Allen Winter committed changes in /branches/work/kdepim-3.5.5+/korganizer/printing/calprinthelper.cpp:

more printing fixes:
1. the last commit to determine the timeline fontsize was wrong. the better solution is to use the cell width
2. draw a complete horizontal line in the timeline box under the text when using the pH:MM AMPM time format
3. use an incredibly tiny 6pt helvetica font to display the small month box in the header as necessary dependent on the height of the header.

what's better? a tiny font or a slightly bigger font that's mashed together with other date numbers? neither is especially readable.

Jason Harris committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdeedu/kstars/kstars:

Several changes:

Changed XYZ stuff in SkyPoint and SkyMap to use Quaternions; added quaternion.[h|cpp] as part of this. We still aren't actually using this code, but it's in place for when we are ready to try it.

Removed SatelliteTrack class; moved its functionality to SatelliteComponent. Added SatelliteComposite to manage the SatelliteComponents. The code is ready to start testing actual satellite tracks in the sky map.

MilkyWayComponent is now derived from LineListComponent. I tried to make this class work properly with the new SkyMap::toScreen(SkyLine) function, but it got too complicated. The problem is that this function truncates lines at the edge of the screen, which messes up the construction of the MW polygons. Rather that try to deal with all the corner cases, I simply added a bool option to SkyMap::toScreen(SkyLine) that allows you to deactivate the truncation of lines at the screen edge. So Milky Way polygons will exist beyond the borders of the SkyMap.

Reinhold Kainhofer committed changes in /branches/work/kdepim-3.5.5+/korganizer:

Add command line options to
- Open the URLs in a separate window (--open, -o)
- Merge the events of the URLs into the standard calendar (--merge, -m)
- Add the URLs as new resources (--import, -i)
If no command line option is given, korganizer will ask which of these actions should be taken for each URL. If no URL is given, the standard resource calendar is displayed.

This commit will probably also remove the need for korganizer-import.desktop (but I don't know the details why that was added at all, so I don't remove it myself).

Unfortunately, this fixes the problems only for standalone KOrganizer, not when the calendarpart of kontact is loaded. In that case, none of the options has any effect (as koapp.cpp is not used in kontact). I don't know kuniqueapplication enough to determine what i have to change to make the calendar part of kontact behave similar to korganizer standalone...

Solve the usability nightmare that has been the "Scan Changes" button in the collection browser. This button is no more. Instead, I created a permanently active entry "Update Collection" in the main menu.

I think this is less confusing than conditionally showing this button or not. And also it's sometimes handy to start a update scan immediately.

Ok, here is a new idea I'm toying with, inspired by KMail: Whenever new items arrive in the playlist, we draw them in a different color (red currently). This is cool because when you merge two playlists, you have a visual cue that tells you where the new playlist begins.

Well so far this is just 10-minute hack to demonstrate the idea. If people like it, we could develop it further.

Sebastian Trueg committed changes in /branches/work/nepomuk-kde/kmetadata:

Introducing libKMetaData:
* As proposed last week libKMetaData is based on the Resource class which represents one piece of information and has a bunch of properties which basicly represent the RDF predicates in the metadata store.
* One simply creates a Resource instance with the resource URI as a parameter and can then modify it however needed.
* loading and storing is not implemented yet, though. So actually it dows not work yet.
* Autosyncing is also not implemented yet. I am not sure yet what the best approach would be here.
* Next step is to create Resource subclasses from the Nepomuk meta data ontology that provide convenience classes to access all kinds of information.

I had some internet trouble the last days (as in: I had none). So I coded this like I thought was right without consulting anyone. Comments are welcome.

The Ontology parser mostly works now and can generate header and soure files of the Resource subclasses representing Ontology classes.

- CMakeLists.txt creation
- cmake integration
- maybe some tweaks to ignore certain predicates

I tested it with the PIMO Ontology which contains a lot of stuff that makes no sense in libKMetaData.

Development Tools

David Nolden committed changes in /branches/kdevelop/3.4:

Implement a powerful caching-mechanism for preprocessing included files. The driver manages a lexer-cache of limited size that stores multiple variants of lexed files including their exact dependency-information that can be used to exactly determine whether the file needs to be lexed again under current driver's state, or whether the results of a previous run can be used.

This makes the header-parsing mode usable for every-day-use, and lightning fast for example while editing a file and the same file needs to be parsed again and again!

Parsing kdevelop-3 still takes more time than without header-preprocessing, but it's another order of magnitude compared to before.

Note: This might also become useful for kdevelop-4.

Ported from kapp to KInstance+QApplication. We need still kdeui for kstartupinfo, but this way we avoid:

- a lot of other gui init done by kapp
- useless kapp command line options (kstart --icon foo ... won't do the expected)
- the startupid env reset by kapp, which we then need to set again before starting the app (cc to Lubos for post-commit validation of that change)

Also turned the KProcess into a pointer to avoid 'QSocketNotifier: Can only be used with threads started with QThread' warning.

KPresenter still depends on QtRT (aka kotext1) which doesn't work anymore due to it depending on Qt3 internals. And now I reused some widget-classes in the libs, and let those widgets be based on the new kotext (scribe) with the result that kpresenter stopped compiling.

So, I'm disabling kpresenter compilation untill the maintainers start to rework it so it starts to use the flake stuff.
