This Week...

Kate adds an extension to Kate Vim: new shortcut ctrl-e in the emulated command bar, that makes refactoring duplicated complex expressions easier; other search and replace improvements include multi-line text searches and upper/lower-casing replacement captures. KDE-PIM supports CONDSTORE IMAP extension for incremental flags change synchronization. Akonadi implements server-side notification filtering, adds support for a globally unique identifier for items. Artikulate adds multiple recordings for the courses. Krita implements anisotropic spacing for the brushes. KDE Frameworks porting continues, for instance in the new i18n semantics.

Bug Fixes

Development Tools

Andreas Pakulat committed changes in [kdevelop/4.5] languages/cpp/cppduchain/templatedeclaration.cpp:

Fix endless recursion in setSpecializedFrom

This could be triggered by having the exactly same specialization occur
twice in a single file. setSpecializedFrom would end up calling itself
with the same TemplateDeclaration over and over again.

Adding another recursion counter in the same way that other places already
have one fixes the problem. Unfortunately I wasn't able to generate a test
that exhibits the recursion problem.


Bernhard Beschow committed changes in [marble] /qt-components/marble-touch:

fix Marble Touch to restore last activity when restarting

Aleix Pol Gonzalez committed changes in [pairs] pairseditor/mainwindow.cpp:

Fix crash

Initialize the view whenever we're creating the view, otherwise most of the
class members would be null and the application crashed.
Also don't ask to save if the view is not initialized yet, it's not useful
and lets us reuse this bit of code.

Gilles Caulier committed changes in [digikam] /:

Maintenance Manager : complete rewrite of maintenance tools handling.
Instead to use signal provided by tool to know if job is done, use progress manager signal.
Store instance of each tools in d private container instead stack to provide a better check of stage under progress.
Patch ScanController to provide a better feedback to NewItemsFinder, in all scan mode. Add a new method to only call core code to perform
scan WITHOUT to show a progress dialog. In fact progress manager as already all in place to give user feedback about progress...
Patch FaceManagement maintenance tool to indicate that face are detected and recognized.
Move status progress bar with ProgresManager code, as this one is fully relevant.

Marcel, I would to drop fully DProgressDialog code, which is only used now to ScanController, with all first run step to collect all information from image
managed by database. I remember that in 2.x serie, you have patched digiKam to only perform first run scan in background when albumgui is show. I'm right ?
At now, this feature sound fonctionnal some time, but it's not fully reproducible.
If you take a look how Google Picasa work, you will see that main DB referencing run in background when main GUI is displayed. A progress indication is show in statusbar.
User can start to work with collected items in real time and don't need to wait a long time that all referencing is done through a small progress dialog...
Look this entry for ex : 320359.
What do you think about?

Andrey Matveyakin committed changes in [kate] /render:

Always draw full selection rect in block mode

Alex Fiestas committed changes in [kdelibs] solid/solid/backends/udev/udevmanager.cpp:

Always return an object if the device was of interest when added

Finally this nasty gets fixed, problem is easy:
-Udev calls deviceAdded
-We emit deviceAdded
-Device becomes invalid (in udev)
-UdevManager::createDevice is called, returns 0
-deviceRemoved is emit
-Q_ASSERT explodes because we returned 0.

This patch basically ensures that if the device was of interest when
deviceAdded was called a UdevDevice object is always returned even if
the device is dummy. That's the best we can do.

Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps] dolphin/src/dolphindockwidget.cpp:

Do not allow that panels are dragged out of the main window

This feature might have been useful in some cases, but it's most likely
not useful enough to justify that we accept the bugs that it causes.
Even though some of these bugs are not Dolphin's fault at all, they
cause serious problems for users in some cases.

I'm pushing this commit to master only because I prefer to not push such
behavior changes to 4.11 at this point of the release cycle.

Make joining lines in Visual Mode with J work when the selection is in a downwards direction, and fix counted-ness of line joins (it was joining one too many) and make cursor positioning match Vim's (should place the cursor before the first non-whitespace char of the last line joined).

Don't crash if there are only empty lines to join.

Also, entirely unrelatedly, fix some annoying warnings in KateViModeBase::switchView(...).

Fix creating items with a single external payload.

This was removing the just inserted part from the db again, but keeping the
external payload file around. This cannot possibly have ever worked...

We probably didn't notice this so far since emails are multi-part and don't
hit this path at all, and everything else is usually too small for the
external storage threshold. This was found by the unit tests for
ItemCreateJob in kdepimlibs.

Fix display alarm deferral limit when KAlarm defaults to UTC.

When time zones are not accessible and KAlarm defaults to the UTC
time zone, deferral limits were calculated as the UTC time, not the
local time. Depending on the local time zone, this resulted in alarms
not being able to be deferred or being able to be deferred past the
next recurrence.

Fixed Speed, Distance and Drawing Angle sensors

This patch makes the following user-visible changes:

1) Speed and Distance sensors are fixed
2) Drawing Angle sensor became much more stable and smooth
3) Drawing Angle sensor works right on the rotated canvas

Technical details:

This patch hugely refactors the distance information part of
our painting system. The two most significant changes:

1) KisPaintInformation doesn't have movement() method, because it
used to get inconsistent *very* fast when the lien was split into
chunks in paintBezierCurve. The access to drawingDistance(),
drawingAngle() and drawingSpeep() parameters is provided only by means
of teh associated KisDistanceInformation.

2) (follows from the point 1) From now on paintAt() function also accepts
KisDistanceInformation object, because otherwise it will not be able
to access the calculated parameters.

Mark Kretschmann committed changes in [amarok] /:

Fix initial sizes, minimum sizes, and resizing of dock widgets.

Something that had annoyed me for a long time is when you resized
Amarok, the relative proportions of the three dock widgets would change.
Maybe I'm a bit OCD about UIs but it can't stand it when something is
almost symmetrical, but not quite. So that won't happen any more.

Also, the widgets now have sane minimum sizes.

MediaDeviceCache: work-around Solid UDisks2 bug by not calling allDevices()

Kudos go to Alex Fiestas for extensive debugging and finding out the
root of the problem.

* Work-around Solid UDisks2 backend bug that caused USB Mass Storage
devices and iPods not being recognized when connected before Amarok
was started. Also fixes a bug where blank devices would appear in
Play Media dialog. (BR 322980)

that was replaced in Amarok 2.6.

Simon Paul St James committed changes in [kate] /:

Add an extension to Kate Vim in the form of a new shortcut ctrl-e for the emulated command bar, which behaves similarly to ctrl-r save that the inserted text is escaped for searching - this enables us to do e.g.


on the text:

( x / y * z * 5.0)

then open up a search and do ctrl-e, 0 and find all occurrences of that formula - in this particular case, the "/", "*" and "." are escaped when we do ctrl-e, 0 i.e. we search for

( x \/ y \* z * 5\.0)

This makes refactoring a duplicated complex expression like the above into a method/ local variable much more convenient.

Simon Paul St James committed changes in [kate] /:

Further work on the "repeat last search" stuff - in Vim's search bar, if we search forward, then an unescaped "/" has a special meaning, which I'm going to call a "search config marker" (not sure if there is any official terminology) (and likewise for "?" when searching backwards). If one is present, the actual pattern to search is everything to the left of this, unless such a pattern is empty, in which case we repeat the last search performed. The stuff to the right of it is also parsed: if there is an 'e' there, then the search will place the cursor at the *end* of the match, rather than the beginning. I've implemented all this stuff, though there is some more to do: in Vim proper, we can also specify an offset to place the cursor; e.g.


would search for bar and place the cursor 3 chars before the end of the match;


would repeat the last search and place the cursor 6 chars after the start of the match; etc.

I haven't implemented this "numeric offset" stuff, though.

Christian Mollekopf committed changes in [kdepimlibs] /:

Added support for GID.

This patch adds support for a globally unique identifier for items.
In particular it allows to set the GID from ItemCreate/ModifyJobs,
to refer to items using the GID in fetch/modify jobs, and to retrieve
the GID in fetch jobs using the itemfetch scope.

The GidExtractorInterface can be implemented by serializer plugins to
extract the GID from the payload of an item.
A typical example is the uid of an ical object.

By using this facility akonadi supports efficient lookups by gid.

This feature requires the server protocol version 34.

Dan Vratil committed changes in [kdepim-runtime] /:

Support CONDSTORE IMAP extension

CONDSTORE extension allows incremental flags change synchronization. That means
we don't have to list all messages in every mailbox to check whether there were
any flags changes, we just ask for messages that have changed since last time.
This saves a lot of bandwidth and massively speeds up synchronization
(especially for large folders).

CONDSTORE is today supported by almost every modern IMAP server, but in case
it's not not supported, the task simply falls back to listing all messages and
comparing flags.

Implement server-side notification filtering

Clients can use the new DBus methods in NotificationSource interface to
configure the filter. The server will then emit each notification only
to clients that are actually interested in.

This decreases DBus traffic generated by the server a lot and reduces
CPU use, because clients don't have to do the filtering anymore.

Clients that don't subscribe with new subscribeV2() method will be
delivered all notifications and have to do the filtering themselves
(backward compatibility)

(Merged and squashed from serverside-monitor branch)

Implemented anisotropic spacing for the Krita brushes

Now if you change the 'ratio' option the brush, the horizontal
and vertical spacing will be relative to the width and height of the
brush correspondingly.

This effect is achieved by used equation of a ellipse. When the
cumulative 'distance' value grows out of the ellipse defined by the
spacing values, a new dab is painted.

This is caused by the AdBlockManager::loadSettings function reading
the adblock rules. It is called with a one second delay to make the
startup faster. With this patch, the function is called in a separate
thread using QtConcurrent::run to eliminate the lag.

To make this safe, the adblocker is enabled after the settings are
loaded, which means, that the first site loaded could be partially
with ads. But this is no change in behavior, as the adblocker in
current master is disabled for a whole second.

The only times this blocks now is in situations, where it is necessary
that the settings are loaded (showSettings and addCustomRule), but I
guess that no normal user will use those in under
a second after startup :)

Anton Kreuzkamp committed changes in [qmlweb] /:

Add support for states and transitions.

This change adds the element types "State", "PropertyChanges" and "Transition".
It also adds the properties "states", "transitions" and "state" to Item.
Moreover it makes the properties "targets" and "properties" of PropertyAnimation
work, which is needed for transitions. It also adjusts the parser to understand
the syntax "targets: [rect1, rect2]" correctly. To QMLBinding it adds a way to
set a evauluated binding-function instead of a src, which is needed to be able
to revert properties to their old binding.

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevplatform] /quickopen:

Optimize: Greatly speed up painting of the QuickOpen list of files.

The bottleneck is the QPixmap creation from a KIcon. We now cache
the KIconLoader::Small icon. In my tests this is a difference of
day and night performance wise. Where scrolling in a longish list
easily took 100% CPU and felt sluggish before, it now is very smooth.

This allows us to remove the scrollbar hack, where we disabled it
when too many items where displayed. It's not neccessary anymore.

Thibaut Gridel committed changes in [marble] src/lib/PlacemarkLayout.cpp:

PlacemarkLayout: optimise for label-less placemarks

roomForLabel is indeed the culprit:
- it didn't scale as it wrongly iterated all placemarks
- it isn't needed once we know a placemark doesn't have text

Eike Hein committed changes in [kde-workspace] /desktop/applets/tasks/package/contents:

Sizing threshold tweaks.

This reduces the preferred minimum height of items to barely above
the font's M size, allowing layout to break into additional rows
far sooner. Additionally, the scaling curve for icons is fudged to
allow the icon to overrun a bit into the frame margins at very low
item heights. Together this answers the clamor for supporting very
space-constrained forced multi-row configurations similar to the
old applet's behavior, while still trying to look not quite as bad
in the process.

Not very happy about introducing some fixed pixel values into the
calculations, but between the poor support for font metrics in QML
and tweaking things for scenarios in which single pixels matter,
it's inevitable for now.

Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kde-baseapps/KDE/4.11] dolphin/src/kitemviews/kfileitemmodel.cpp:

Do not convert a KUrl to a QString and back again

This small change saves a lot of CPU cycles when the items are resorted.

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kde-workspace/frameworks-scratch] kwin/main.cpp:

Drop the X11ErrorHandler from KWin

The XLib error handler became a little bit useless and we don't get
access to the XCB errors, which get logged as debug messages by Qt.


Volker Krause committed changes in [kdepim] mailcommon/folder/foldercollectionmonitor.cpp:

Don't retrieve RID/RREV inside KMail.

This saves about 5% transfer volume (for IMAP, possibly more for maildir
with its longer RIDs), and subsequently memory.

Instead of the ugly go back button at the bottom, add a button in the

Additionally, hide the players list while showing the credits, it doesn't
help much and it unclutters the view.

remove nvidiahack lib

1. it apparently is ineffective
2. if it was effective, it's current behavior would be not exactly helpful
(sets __GL_YIELD to NOTHING, causing busy waits on doublebuffer swapping)
3. it does for sure pollute the doublebuffer/usleep detection (setenv is set to override),
ie. the overehad detection code gets a different opinion on __GL_YIELD than libGL
