Raphael Kubo da Costa committed changes in [kdevelop/4.3] /:

Look for ext/hash_map and unordered_map instead of checking gcc's version.

Follow-up to commits 9f8e8f662974a1035ea64f0ab9404b8858a02a57 and
5c59bd61b1df1b963959f086c5202689c084e0f3. The decision of whether to
include <ext/hash_map> or <unordered_map> for gcc/clang was based on
whether gcc > 4.3 was installed or whether clang was being used. The
latter implicitly assumed a recent enough libstdc++ version (ie. >=
4.3) was being used, which might not be the case on systems such as
FreeBSD and possibly OS X.

Instead of checking for compiler versions, we now look for these
headers: CMake first detects whether <unordered_map> is present and,
in case it is not, it looks for <ext/hash_map>. The checks in
languages/cpp/parser/parser.h have been updated as well. This should
cover all the cases being previously detected, as well as fix the
checks for FreeBSD and other systems where the build was failing
before with clang.

Aleix Pol Gonzalez committed changes in [pairs] /:

Fix text being cut in some text cards

When we read a element's text, trim the result,
otherwise it contains some whitespaces we're not interested in.
Use the actual size we're going to use instead of the QRectF we're given,
which should be correct but it could be a bit too big.

Fabio D'Urso committed changes in [okular] /:

Fixes against causes of annotation data loss + Improved GUI message logic

1) If the user had previously annotated the document with an old okular
version and the document contains existing annotations and no /Encrypt
(ie the case where annotation changes are no longer saved locally), make
Document::saveDocumentInfo write the original unmodified local
annotations back to XML, so that it seems that the original file was not
changed. If the user makes annotation changes, code from previous
patches already asks him to save them to a different document on close.

2) Ask "Save changes?" if the user has modified annotations in a .okular

3) Turned a "sorry" message in a "information" (with dontshowthisagain),
because now we also have the "Save changes?" prompt to inform the user.

4) Suppressed all annotation-related message boxes on document opening

Samikshan Bairagya committed changes in [kstars/gsoc2012-samxan] /:

Introducing feature "What's Interesting..." A QML based test interface has been designed.
SkyObjListModel is a subclass of QAbstractListModel. Objects of SkyObjListModel can
represent any sky-object(any type). Currently test models for Planets, Stars, Galaxies,
Constellations, Star Clusters and Nebulae are used in class Modelmanager. The QML UI is
maintained by the WIView class.

The models are loaded everytime "What's Interesting..." is opened. It takes a long
time to load all the models. This is because currently the models checks through all
sky-objects. A reduced list will definitely be required.

improve visual feedback when dragging path curve

when changing a path curve directly by dragging it,
there was no real feedback for the user to see if
starting to drag would change the curve or doing a

to reflect if the mouse is onb a path segment. additionally
a status text is shown in the status bar.
i also refactored the corresponding code a little to reuse
the result of the path segment under the mouse cursor.

Eike Hein committed changes in [konversation] /:

Rewrite the Topic tab in the Channel Options dialog and the backing code.

Changelog excerpt:

* The Topic tab in the Channel Options dialog has been redesigned and
rewritten from scratch, featuring a much improved UI and many bug fixes:
- In place of the previous UI with a multi-column topic history list and two
distinct text fields for browsing and editing there is now only the list
and an edit field. The list has been redesigned to show all of the data for
a topic, with visually distinct headers serving to delineate individual
entries and showing the author and timestamp, above the full text for each
- Entries in the history list now sport a context menu allowing to copy the
topic text and querying the topic author.
- A new search field above the history list allows filtering it by looking
for the search string in the text, author name and timestamp of all topics.
- When an encryption key is set for a channel an attempt is now made to
decrypt all of the topics in the history, not just the current topic.
- When editing the topic any text entered past the server's maximum
allowed topic length will now be drawn in the color scheme's negative
text color (i.e. usually red). Further, if Konversation has been built
against KDE Platform v4.7.0 or higher, a warning is shown at the bottom
of the text field explaining the limit and offering the option - via a
button - to delete the excess text.
- The text cursor is now automatically placed at the end of the edit field,
making the common use case of adding to the topic more convenient.
- The location of the splitter handle inbetween the history list and the edit
is now remembered across all Channel Options dialogs and application
- Storing the topic history for each channel now takes up less memory, and
general efficiency in handling with topic data has been improved greatly.
- Fixed a bug causing redundant entries to accumulate in the topic history
across reconnects when the last entry in the history corresponds to the
topic given by the server at rejoin.
- Fixed a bug causing the "Undo" action in the edit field to occassionally
stop working, making it impossible to return the field to the unmodified
state in which its contents sync to the selected history list entry.
- Fixed a bug causing the topic not to return to its encrypted form when the
decryption key for a channel has been deleted.
- Fixed a bug causing the author of a topic to sometimes be shown as the full
user mask instead of consistenty showing only the nickname.
- Fixed a bug causing the "Unknown" placeholder that is used when the author
of a topic is unknown not to be translated.
- Fixed the incorrect tab key order in the Topic tab.
* The size of the Channel Options dialog is now synchronized between the dialogs
for different channels and remembered across application restarts.
* The widths of the columns in the Ban List tab in the Channel Options dialog
is now synchronized across all Channel Options dialogs.
* Fixed a bug causing the topic at the top of channel tabs not to return to its
encrypted form after the decryption key for a channel has been deleted.
