Issue 132

12th October 2008 by Danny Allen

This Week...

More improvements in KBruch as part of a Brazilian student projects initiative. Ability to search by "HD Catalog Number" in KStars. Initial Kross support in the Rocs educational tool. Multiple projection support in the Marble Plasmoid. Preliminary support for editors in Klotz (formerly KLDraw). Ability to change the alignment of the window title in the Oxygen window decoration. Animation is added to the "boxswitch" KWin-Composite effect. More new features in Amarok 2.0. A configurable zoom slider is added to the Dolphin status bar. A simple new table-based "annotation display widget" in NEPOMUK. The "reset search bar when changing feeds" feature returns to Akregator. More progress on the KJots rewrite effort (Akonadi integration and Plasmoid). Improved keyboard navigation usability in KPlato. UI effects configuration options added to the "TweakKDE" utility. Various Plasma applets, including "Previewer", "Web Browser", and the new "System Tray" move to kdereview in time for KDE 4.2. Killbots moves to kdereview/games. The rewritten webarchiver tool for Konqueror is imported into KDE SVN. KDETV starts to be ported to KDE 4. KOffice 2.0 Beta 2 is tagged for release.
Cinephiliac reports on the impending release (after many months of work) of the KDE4 version of the video editing application Kdenlive:
Kdenlive is a GPL project headed by JB and the team of contributors at that aims to use KDE to bring non-linear video editing to Linux and BSD users everywhere. Kdenlive is designed with ease of use as a priority with a clear (and fast) interface. Features have been designed to suit a range of users from beginners (DV camcorder capturing, real-time effects and transitions) to semi-pro users (multi-track editing, clip organization tools and high definition and lossless formats thanks to frameworks like MLT and FFmpeg). This release is especially significant as the code of Kdenlive itself has largely been rewritten from the ground up to be able to take advantage of the many benefits of KDE 4, such as the clean, slick Oxygen visual identity, underlying libraries, and even the beginnings of NEPOMUK integration.

We're working to provide you with a stable, slick, powerful video creation suite for a couple of main reasons. First, we all want to have the best possible system for realizing our own creative ideas and projects. That's pretty obvious itch scratching. Secondly, and more seriously, we all know that free and open source software can do amazing things. We would love for everyone to be able to share the best of that with the outside world. In this day and age, that means sharing video - all kinds of video – from screencasts and films to tutorials and video blogs. We wanted it to be easy. We wanted it to be powerful. And we wanted people to be able to say that they created it free and open source.

There's many great features already from beginning to end. You can record from FireWire cameras, webcams and even your screen directly and when you're done editing, you can save your video using multi-threaded rendering that keeps going in the background as you edit, even if the application crashes. But there's still a lot that we want to improve. Being essentially a "dot zero" release though, just like with KDE 4.0 release, there's still plenty of fixes and features to be made, and stability to be enhanced. We still look into every crash report and do our best to figure out how to improve it. Having said that i've been using it on our own projects and have been very happy with the huge progress made since the the previous releases over a year ago.

That improvement all starts with creating the videos you want and joining the community of enthusiastic users and new contributors. People who make videos and file any bug reports they can along the way. People to add the features they want and people to package the releases (if you know how, we'd love to talk!). We're very lucky that a project like this has all the glamour of a creative, userland application, as well as many technically interesting areas such as improving effects and their keyframing, JACK pro-audio integration, low level multimedia framework interaction and the newest features of the KDE 4 framework. Of course anyone able to help with the fundamentals like documentation, testing, and of course using Kdenlive is always extremely welcome! It doesn't matter if you don't know how to code. Neither do I. We work as a team, and we're fortunate enough to be able to use the skills we have supporting the talented people who can.

Now, with the KDE 4 version of Kdenlive out the door, we all have the opportunity to focus on a variety of potential improvements from the roadmap. Increasing control and flexibility of audio and video effects, the array of timeline editing tools, speed and of course stability are all on the roadmap for potential inclusion on the next release. There's still work to do, but the future of popular video editing on Linux and BSD is looking brighter than ever right now. We look forward to sharing it with you at

Packages, repositories or builds are already available for Debian-based systems such as Kubuntu/Ubuntu (at, Madriva and Gentoo at the time of writing.

Note: There is also a slightly out-of-date Kdenlive screencast at
John-Paul Stanford introduces a new KDE game, Bomber:
My name is John-Paul Stanford. I'm been working on a new game called "Bomber". There were two main aims before starting this project. The first is to have some fun coding a game similar to one I played on my first 8-Bit computer. The second reason was to code a game that was simple, so I could get to grips with coding KDE games.

I'm a professional software engineer, who mostly uses Java in my day job. I've worked on a KDE project Kmud back in the KDE1 and 2 days, so Bomber is the first C++ and KDE work I've done since then. I've had quite a bit of learning to do again, but it's been fun doing it. This has been the perfect project so far.

Bomber is a game where you fly a spaceship and attempt to bomb the buildings below you. Each pass the spaceship makes, it gets lower and lower. If you've not destroyed a building in your path, you will crash into it and lose a life. Once the level is cleared, you start the next level. Each level is harder because of taller buildings and a faster plane.

The game is fully themeable, and I hope that theme creators will be able to have fun styling the game. The default theme "Starwars" was created by Eugene and really brought the game to life.

Currently the game can be found in KDE SVN, in the playground/games area. I'm hoping that it can be moved to kdereview and be reviewed at some point soon for inclusion in a KDE release. Plans for the future of the game involve adding different difficulty settings. Though i'd love to hear users' ideas for additions to the game!

Bomber can be found at

Bug Fixes

Development Tools

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

Fix build failure reported in the kdesvn-build 1.7 release. Someday I'll have the time to do better testing, but this is still a fairly embarrassing bug to make it to a release. :(

Guess I should heed the motto of "Slow is Fast" and stop rushing myself.

The cause of the bug was moving around the definition of $script. Later code in the function (inappropriately) used the value of $script which used to coincidentally be correct.

As a bonus though the debugging for this also uncovered a long-hidden bug in the venerable get_option subroutine which would cause qt-copy's configure to fail if the configure-flags were empty.

Also persistent option reading is given a sane default, which should hopefully fix the other build failures.

KDE Base

Michael Leupold committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/runtime/kwalletd/backend:

Make the wallet work on windows (strip excess '/')
Use the Windows Crypto API for generating good random numbers on windows.


Thomas McGuire committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdepim/libkdepim:

Fix suspicious code, Rambo way: Just remove the class.
It was unused anyway.

Soren Harward committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok:

Major overhaul of the playlist subsystem

== Changes for end users ==
In the playlist view, mouse and keyboard event handling, and the selection system have both been significantly improved. The undo/redo commands now work properly in all cases. Album grouping works consistently. Some of the eye candy (like animations) has been temporarily removed, but will hopefully return in the future.

== Changes in general Amarok code ==
The PlaylistModel has been split into four different classes:
1) PlaylistActions
2) PlaylistController
3) PlaylistModel
4) GroupingProxy

The play, nextTrack, and previousTrack functions are now part of PlaylistActions. Functions that modify the contents of the playlist (insert, remove, and move tracks; undo and redo) are now part of PlaylistController. If you want to find out about the contents of the playlist, you still use PlaylistModel, though you cannot modify it without using the Controller. I encourage you to take a look at the headers for each of these classes to find out what functions are available.

The album grouping functionality that used to be in the PlaylistModel has been moved into GroupingProxy. Both GraphicsView and PrettyListView (described in the next section) use GroupingProxy. It really isn't useful for anything other than playlist views.

The signals and slots for the PlaylistModel have changed substantially; PlaylistModel now behaves much more like a QAbstractItem model when it is modified.

A position-independent accessing system has been added to the model for situations where you care what is in the playlist, but not what order the playlist is in (eg, Random Track mode).

The Model::trackNumberLessThan() function has moved to Meta::Track::lessThan()

== Changes in the playlist subsystem ==
The src/playlist/ directory has been rearranged.

Along with the PlaylistModel changes, there is a new View for the playlist, called PrettyListView. It subclasses QListView and is designed to be a replacement for GraphicsView. The code for GraphicsView still exists in the source tree and has been mostly ported to the new PlaylistModel system, but PrettyListView solves a lot of the selection model and event handling problems of the GraphicsView.

Casey Link committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok:

When you selected Move To Collection in the filebrowser it didn't differentiate between files and directories.
This has been fixed.

If a selected item is a directory, it will recursively descend it and adding all urls it encounters along the way.
This is how it behaved in Amarok 1.4.

Networking Tools

Joris Guisson committed changes in /trunk/extragear/network/ktorrent/plugins/webinterface/httpserver.cpp:

Make sure users which are not logged in into webinterface cannot post torrents

Giovanni Venturi committed changes in /trunk/playground/network/ksniffer:

removed some debug messages and hopefully removed a very ugly when you change the number of packets to sniff very often ksniffer let in the "pcap handler cache" the old file, so if this bug has been removed with this commit I can go on for 0.3.3 release.

If not I don't know what the hell is happening in the Qt signal because all captured packets (after the first time) can be not really the packets the network was getting.

Bram, Salvatore can you check this issue? Thank you from now. Of course I hope also some other KDE developer can test this issue


Guillaume Martres committed changes in /trunk/playground/utils/kvkbd/src:

Make right Shift works again
Don't assume that shift + [alphabetical character] always equals character.toUpper() (this is not always the case on the French keyboard for example) but always use character.toUpper() for Caps Lock, since that's how it behaves on Linux

Akarsh Simha committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdeedu/kstars/kstars/skycomponents:

Implement searching by HD Catalog Number.
This is still far from ideal (especially when the simulation clock is running), but provides something at least.

This bit will break on Big Endian systems as byte-swapping is not implemented.

The stars are not displayed in the Find Dialog, but can be searched by typing in 'HD<catalog number>' in the find dialog box. Eg: HD142534.

Andi Clemens committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/digikam/utilities/fuzzysearch/findduplicatesview.cpp:

Added a StatusProgressBar to the FindDuplicates view
We need a cancel action for the find duplicates function, since it can take a lot of time on a huge image-collection.
The cancel button of the progressbar widget is disabled by now, since no cancel action isimplemented so far.

Andi Clemens committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/digikam:

First implementation of a cancel action for the find duplicates feature.

Right now KJob::kill() is used to stop the search for duplicate images.Hopefully this is enough and plays well with the database connection.

KDE Base

Jason Stubbs committed changes in /trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/systray-refactor:

Changed icon return type from QPixmap to QIcon to allow an icon to be specified by name and to allow more than a single pixmap for protocols that can support it.

Fixed the dbus notification protocol to report the icon (as it needed to specify by name).

Also renamed appName and appIcon to applicationName and applicationIcon for readability.

Animation is default off.

If turned on the highlight is in the center of the box and the thumbnails are moved on alt+tab so that the currently selected window will be in the center.

Will Stephenson committed changes in /trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/networkmanager:

Add a lightweight applet which is closer to the NetworkManager api (not using profiles yet) and does not use a dataEngine for simplicity.

Will be partly merged with the existing applet.
Still mostly non-functional and very ugly.

Stephen Kelly committed changes in /trunk/playground/pim/kjotsrewrite:

Some progress made on the akonadi model

* Created a CollectionAndItemModel
* Removed dummy books from the akonadi resource.
* Let KJotsPage create a page by reading a file.
* Removed some models that didn't work.

Now the plasmoid displays a model of books and pages, but books can not be nested.

Also, I need to figure out a way to remove the unwanted collections from other resources, and make the Bookshelf the root item.

Probably need to be much smarter about the signals and slots for jobs and model changes to solve these issues.

Nikolaj Hald Nielsen committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Make it possible to add actions of a special PopupDropperAction subclass to a list of global actions that will be applied to all items of a specific meta type in all collections.

This is useful, for instance, for services that can offer special functionality related to some items, like that can provide a simmilar artist stream for any artist.

The service now uses this system which means that the action is available everywhere (even in other services) and that the action is no longer hardcoded anywhere in the core of Amarok.

Soren Harward committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src/playlist:

Add "scroll to active track" feature for playlist view

Because of the current A2 string freeze, this feature can't actually be enabled in the GUI.

But it's there and it works.

Casey Link committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Added a barebones FileCollectionLocation implementation to support the removing of files when Moving to a collection from a non-collection-folder on disk somewhere.

The filebrowser now uses this implementation, so if you "Move" files to a collection it will actually delete the original source files.

Diffs: 1, 2, 3, 4 Revision 869746
Nikolaj Hald Nielsen committed changes in /trunk/extragear/multimedia/amarok/src:

Here comes the initial version of the new statusbar.
It is working but there are a few methods (mainly longMessage) that are still only stubs. Where it really shines compared to the old statusbar, is that it handles multiple concurrent jobs in a sane way.

The old code has been kept around for now as I am still porting small bits over, but once that is done, we can get rid of the "NG" naming if we want to.

All calls to the old statusbar has been redirected to the new one, so this does affect quite a large number of files, so do keep an eye out for conflics.

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

Implement automatic score computation for tracks, using the same algorithm that Amarok 1 used by default.

Note: I have _deliberately_ implemented the scoring as native code, as opposed to our solution in Amarok 1, where it used to be a script.

This is because the idea of scripting the scoring algorithm turned out to be complete overkill and hardly used by the community.

* Add a LibraryFilter (subclass of QFilterSortProxyModel) to show only removable items on a LibraryView.
* Change the main config file format to allow for easier creation of puzzles.
* Add a Palapeli::Pattern::Mode enum to gain the ability to simulate slicing (necessary to get the piece count).
* Remove cmake/ directory, FindPalapeli.cmake is in lib/ now.
* Fix many issues, and report more issues in "//TODO:" and "//FIXME:" comments.

Marcel Wiesweg committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/digikam/libs/database/collectionscanner.cpp:

Do not use the file name filter that comes with QDir.entryInfoList, which is very slow for larger file counts and filtered suffixes.

Just get all files and use plain simple suffix filtering from a QSet.

Speeds up complete collection scan by approximately factor 20.

KDE Base

David Nolden committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdelibs:

- Speed up the child-handling of smart-ranges by using a binary search in the sorted child-list wherever possible, instead of iterating over all children.
- Use binary search in the renderer to find the next boundary.

This makes the whole smart-range stuff scale up a lot better up when there is many of them.

On my machine this speeds up the rendering in KDevelop-4 by magnitudes, finally it feels nearly like in KDE3.

Peter Penz committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdebase/apps/dolphin/src:

Improve performance of information panel.
Depending on the used backend reading the meta information like rating, tags and comments can be slow (especially when e. g. selecting 1000 files at once having items that are not cached yet).

The reading of the meta information is now forwarded to a separate thread, so that Dolphin never gets blocked.

Improve the smart-ranges so they don't confine child-ranges to each other, without significant performance-overhead in the case of non-overlapping children.

This undocumented behavior was very hard to deal with in complex applications like KDevelop's C++ support, and hard to debug.

Now the child-ranges are sorted by end-cursor, and each range maintains the count of later ranges it is overlapped by. This allows efficient manipulation and efficient rendering.

This includes a lot of #ifdeffed debugging and verification code, that has proven that it works quite well.

Rendering of overlapped child-ranges works too. Whenever overlapped children are encountered, a new KateRenderRange is created for the additional overlapping children.

Jan Kundrát committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/kphotoalbum/Settings/SettingsData.cpp:

Use 120MB for image preloading in the Viewer

The old default was 25MB, which is way too low for recent cameras with 10Mpix resolution.

Unfortunately, there's no cross-platform way in Qt or kdelibs to get amount of total/available RAM.
Perhaps we might introduce a Linux-specific optimization and a "default" value?

Gilles Caulier committed changes in /trunk/extragear/graphics/digikam:

- if provided, use desktop wide default value for pictures directory.

KDE4.2 will have this from KGlobalSettings, Qt4.4's QDesktopService provides the same for KDE4.1.

Fixes: Tab & Backtab should be offered to the active tool.
Details; Use the way that Qt designed this to work. We implement focusNextPrevChild in KoCanvasController.

sidenote; I noted that the event filter solution was not present various apps meaning tools never got the chance to see those events.

This is what happens now; user presses [tab], KoCanvasController says it doesn't use it for focus issues and Qt offers a keyEvent instead.

The apps canvas forwards the event to the tool which decides if he wants to use it. (The text tool does, most others don't).

The app canvas notices the key is ignored by the tool and goes on to try to change the focus.

Create a new playground directory for plugins/applets that should not be available by default when we release packages.

This will hopefully make a nice staging area for people developing new applets/services/collections/whatever.

The stuff in playground is not built by default, but can be built and installed from the amarok/playground directory in exactly the same way that amarok is built.

This is my very first go at this, so let me know if I screwed up something or if anything can be done in a smarter way.
