Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevplatform/itemrepository] /:

Fix, refactor and cleanup the session locking mechanism.

This is especially needed to break the cyclic dependency between
language and shell which was introduced by the requirement to
call SessionController::tryLockSession from the ItemRepositoryRegistry.

This commit introduces a RAII ISessionLock that is implemented by
shell/sessionlock.{cpp,h}. This lock is passed around as a shared
pointer. All potentially dangerous code paths now take such a
ISessionLock::Ptr argument to verify that the session is properly

Such a little change, yet it had quite an aftermath... The fix made
it neccessary to refactor lots of other code paths, especially the
crude SessionController::LockSessionState is gone and replaced by
three new classes:

SessionRunInfo, which holds the information about whether a session
is running and if so, what the app's PID and name is.

ISessionLock::Ptr which ensures that a session is actually locked.

TryLockSessionResult (bad name, suggestions?) which holds both,
a SessionRunInfo and a ISessionLock::Ptr. If the latter is non-null
it means that the session was locked. Otherwise the SessionRunInfo
can be queried for why this was not the case.

In addition to that we now also have some more readable API in the
SessionController, most notably isSessionRunning and sessionRunInfo.

Oh and did I mention that I introduced some more unit tests? Yay!

Note that I also removed quite some dead code, most notably in what
was formerly SessionController::handleSessionLocked. The information
about stale lock files and such should never be shown as only the
DBUSLock is actually relevant. The KLockFile is only used to find
the PID + app name of whoever is responsible for locking a given
session ID.

Futhermore I have to say that we should decide on whether to use
QUUid or QString in our API as the type for our Session IDs...
Right now we use a mixture of both but actually rely on QUUid in

Finally I also moved the stupid SessionDialog into its own files
but that should be completed and further cleaned up...

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevelop] /cpp/parser:

These are ignored in the semantic analysis for now but at least this
way code completion does not break and no annoying errors are shown.

Luca Beltrame committed changes in [pykde4/KDE/4.10] kpythonpluginfactory/CMakeLists.txt:

Fix unresolved symbols appearing in PyKDE4.

Apparently the CMake policy responsible for this is getting set back

Reporter, please close the bug if the issue is no longer applicable. I
can't reproduce it.

Sebastian Kügler committed changes in [plasmate] /:

plasmoidviewer: respect --containment flag in sizing and scenerect

The normal behavior of plasmoidviewer, which resizes the applet to the
window, is not very useful for testing containments, at it sets the
scenerect and resizes the widget where it is really the containment's
job to take care of the layout.

So, when the --containment flag is set, and a plugin is found:
- do not change the scenerect anymore
- do not resize the widget
- do not wire up applet resize events to our view's scenerect
- set window title to $Applet: $Containment
- change icon to containment's icon

This set of changes makes plasmoidviewer really useful, where it
previously would often flick out of the view and show all kinds of
applet placement madness when used with the --containment flag.

Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps/KDE/4.10] dolphin/src/kitemviews/kstandarditemlistwidget.cpp:

Slightly reduce the tinting for selected icons and previews

The intention of the tinting was to make it more obvious in icons view
which icons are selected. However, some icons and previews look quite
ugly with the current tinting value of 1.0 (i.e., the value passed to
KIconEffect::colorize). A slight reduction of this value to 0.8 makes
this a little less ugly. However, the real fix is to remove the tinting
altogether and find something better to indicate which items are

David Faure committed changes in [kdelibs/KDE/4.10] /:

Rework fix for bug 279675 so that the new mimetype is used by KRun too.

When the mimetype has to be refined from the url-filename or suggested-filename,
it's not enough to show the user, we have to also pass it on to the application
and to KRun. Otherwise clicking "open with KWrite" can end up not doing anything,
due to the service->hasMimeType() check in KRun. It also didn't benefit from
the turning of shellscript into text/plain in BrowserRun::handleNonEmbeddable
since the mimetype fixup was done afterwards.

Vishesh Handa committed changes in [nepomuk-widgets/KDE/4.10] /:

MetadataFilter: Do not show editable data for contacts and albums

Though it does make sense for the user to be able to tag/rate contacts
and albums, dolphin is not the place to do it from. Specially since
contacts and albums are not displayed by the nepomuk kioslaves.

That would result in the user tagging the contact/album and it then not
appearing in the tag results.

Effect used the display size which caused windows being larger than

NepomukSearch: Always stat the file before listing it

This removes the optimization that we use the pre-fetch the stat results

have old entries in the search results for files that no longer exist.
The filewatch doesn't always work, also removable media handling doesn't
always save it under filex.

We do not want to show file results that do not exist.

Gilles Caulier committed changes in [digikam] /dimg/filters/lens:

Apply patch #76256 from Roman I Khimov to use crop factor from camera, not from lens data.
Lens crop factor in DB only tells us which crop factor was used for lens
calibration data, but it has nothing to do with shots made on random user's
camera. So the default behaviour should be to use camera's crop factor and only
fallback to lens data if there in no data present for camera. As "this should
not happen" it's appropriate to spit out some debug message in this case.

Apply patch #76255 from Roman I Khimov to don't pass crop factor as scale factor to lensfun.

Sixth parameter to Initialize() is actually a scale factor which has nothing
in common with crop factor. I think it's safe to assume that we want no
scaling from lensfun and thus use the value of one.

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevelop] languages/cpp/tests/cpp-parser.cpp:

Show actual AST size in the debug utility cpp-parser.

This is done by walking the tree and summing the size of the
encountered nodes.

The output is insofar interesting as it shows the discrepancy between
allocated memory and required memory of about 100% - i.e. we need
twice as much memory as the AST is actually needing. This is mostly
due to backtracking in the parser: When we encounter an invalid node
somewhere we might bubble up the parse chain and continue down a
different path. Any allocations in the memory pool are 'lost' this
way and not reclaimed until the whole pool is discarded.

We might want to think about reclaiming such nodes somehow. So far,
I did not come up with an easy, fast API to achieve this result

Disable only needed CRTC, read below for more information

Since the begining we have been doing it wrong to get kscreen working
ASAP, we were disabling all outputs that were being updated, which at the
long run created more problems than it solved.

This commit reverts the hacks needed to make the hack work (LOL) and
makes the code work as follow:

-Disable all outputs that need disabling (not used)
-Update all outputs that need update (mode/rotation/pos changed)
-Disable all outputs that previous RECT doesn't fit the new screen one
for example if a output was extended to the right and now is not, the
X will be at XXXX while the new screenSize is YYY

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevelop] /cpp/parser:

Introduce a thread local memory pool cache and refactor the code.

This optimizes the speed of our allocator, especially for the case
of multiple repeated constructions of memory pools as is being
done in the ExpressionParser. Funnily enough, I also managed to
increase the performance of the 'normal' operation for a single pool
with many allocations as is done in the full file parsing.

The way it works is that we keep a list of free, allocated blocks
around per thread. Right now, we keep up to 32 blocks of 64K around,
i.e. up to a total of 2MB per thread. This memory is only reclaimed
once the thread finishes. In KDevelop's case this means: never until
the app is closed. Still, I think up to 2MB per thread is not a big
deal and we could potentially decrease this.

Furthermore we should try to share these memory blocks between the
different language plugins. Right now most other lang plugins use
KDevelop-PG-Qt's allocator. I'll investigate how to change that.

New numbers are:

RESULT : TestPool::benchManyPools():
0.0043 msecs per iteration (total: 71, iterations: 16384)
(approx 9x as fast as before)

RESULT : TestPool::benchManyAllocations():
0.000038 msecs per iteration (total: 80, iterations: 2097152)
(approx 1.8x as fast as before)

For the expression parser benchmark the numbers are now:
RESULT : TestExpressionParser::benchEvaluateType():"global-int-number":
- 0.055 msecs per iteration (total: 57, iterations: 1024)
+ 0.017 msecs per iteration (total: 70, iterations: 4096)
RESULT : TestExpressionParser::benchEvaluateType():"global-long-number":
- 0.056 msecs per iteration (total: 58, iterations: 1024)
+ 0.018 msecs per iteration (total: 74, iterations: 4096)
RESULT : TestExpressionParser::benchEvaluateType():"global-long-long-number":
- 0.057 msecs per iteration (total: 59, iterations: 1024)
+ 0.019 msecs per iteration (total: 78, iterations: 4096)
RESULT : TestExpressionParser::benchEvaluateType():"main-a.b":
- 0.074 msecs per iteration (total: 76, iterations: 1024)
+ 0.035 msecs per iteration (total: 72, iterations: 2048)

The other benchmarks stay the same, mostly because they manage to
circumvent the need for a full text parsing and thus the allocator.

Also note: In both callgrind and perf the rxx_allocator::allocator
was a hotspot when looking at "duchainify path/to/kdevelop" and
that mostly due to the repeated calls to ExpressionParser for simple
one-word strings which still allocated a full block of memory. Now
this can be reused and thus operates faster. Saldy, timing the run
of duchainify though does not show any noticeable speedup.

They were for an optimizations in the nepomuksearch query slave where

However, now we no longer pre-fetch them cause we always need to stat
the file in order to check if it exists in the file system.

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kde-workspace] /:

Improved resolving whether a window is on local machine

Most windows use the hostname in WM_CLIENT_MACHINE, but there are windows
using the FQDN (for example libreoffice). So instead of "foo" it is
"" or similar. The logic so far has been unable to properly
determine whether windows with FQDN are on the local system.

In order to solve this problem the handling is split out into an own
class which stores the information of hostname and whether it is a local
machine. This is to not query multiple times. To determine whether the
Client is on the local system getaddrinfo is used for the own hostname
and the FQDN provided in WM_CLIENT_MACHINE. If one of the queried
names matches, we know that it is on the local machine. The old logic to
compare the hostname is still used and getaddrinfo is only a fallback in
case hostname does not match.

The problem with getaddrinfo is, that it accesses the network and by that
could block. To circumvent this problem the calls are moved into threads
by using QtConcurrent::run.

Obviously this brings disadvantages. When trying to resolve whether a
Client is on the local machine and a FQDN is used, the information is
initially wrong. The new ClientMachine class emits a signal when the
information that the system is local becomes available, but for some
things this is just too late:
* window rules are already gathered
* Session Management has already taken place

In both cases this is an acceptable loss. For window rules it just needs
a proper matching of the machine in case of localhost (remote hosts are
not affected). And the case of session management is very academic as it
is unlikely that a restoring session contains remote windows.

Christian Mollekopf committed changes in [kdepim-runtime/KDE/4.10] /nepomukfeeder:

Stay away from nested event-loops.

This was potentially using a lot of memory, as the foreach loop would
result in n jobs which aren't freed until the end of the function (and n
can grow to the amount of items in the akonadi db). Further, collections
were potentially repeatedly fetched.

This patch should therefore not only remove the nested event-loops, but
also improve performance and memory usage.


C. Boemann committed changes in [calligra] /:

Better solution for KoDocumentInfo and content in documents.

When changing the current author we only update the KoDocumentInfo if the document has been
modified or is empty.

On first modification we make sure the KoDocumentInfo reflect what the author profile says

This makes sure we can work as a viewer still, showing the last author, but as soon as the user
starts to edit the document the document info/textvariables are updated.

It may sound simple, but it took some soul searching to convince me this is the right approach.
Well that and thinking of the best way to implement it.

What this patch does NOT do is update the current author selection menu when new author profiles
are created, and document also doesn't reflect changes to current profiles. This is because by
design the author profiles are shared across all calligra applications, so in order to accomplish
this we need to listen to changes to the config, and call KoDocumentInfo::updateParameters().
