This Week...

KDevelop adds a new tool: RegistersView. In KDE-PIM, KMail gains adblock support. Krita adds an option to hide preset strip and/or scratchpad; improves memory efficiency and conversions. Porting to KDE Frameworks and Plasma2 still in progress, this it includes the icon applet; porting to Qt 5 is also in progress for the KCM modules. Work in progress in on systemtray 2.

Bug Fixes

Development Tools

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevplatform] plugins/projectfilter/filter.cpp:

Use default filter set also when the user has an old Filters config.

We do not convert the old Excludes/Includes rules though, as one would
need to merge the rules with the new defaults which is too much hassle.

Ralf Habacker committed changes in [umbrello] /:

Cleanup of mime type detection when exporting bitmaps.

The usage of KDE4's KFileDialog::currentMimeFilter() is broken,
because it returns a list of the currently selected file type.
In the opposite the code expects a single mime type of the selected file.

Andi Fischer committed changes in [umbrello] /dialogs:

Fix crash when adding entity constraints

The root cause of this crash is not checking for a valid index when retrieving
the item from the QList. We should at least check that value before calling at().

The patch I propose adds this check and also fixes the problem causing the
index to be wrong in the first place (like Arash Abedinzadeh described).


Gilles Caulier committed changes in [digikam] utilities/imageeditor/core/undocache.cpp:

add free space check when Editor action is performed to undo/redo cache mechanism.
We check if at least 1 Gb is avaialble, which can be enough to play with photography

FIXED-IN: 3.5.0

KDE Base

Thomas Lübking committed changes in [kde-workspace/KDE/4.11] kwin/effects/fade/package/contents/code/main.js:

workaround bug #321897 by multiplying fadeout time

with 4 instead of just altering the default value
It seems the value is actually written for some ppl.

Worse: former patch didn't actually work as expected

Valentin Rusu committed changes in [kde-runtime] /:

Add a KDE notification when wallet sync to disk fails

FIXED-IN: 4.12

This does not really fixes the bug, as I'm not able to reproduce it
and never happened on my system. However, KSaveFile's logic may fail
and kwalletd did not took that into account. When such a failure
occurred, kwalletd silently ignored the errors. This fixes that and
adds a system notification to let the user know that something is
wrong with the disk (disk full, r/W error, etc.)

Eike Hein committed changes in [kde-workspace/KDE/4.11] /desktop/applets/tasks:

Fix calculation for "group only when full".

* Fixes potentially miscalculating the threshold with "Force
Rows" enabled.
* Fixes potentially being left with a stale threshold in the
group manager due to a race condition between reacting to
an applet geometry change and recalculating the threshold.
* The calculated threshold was generally off by one thanks to
misinterpreting the libtaskmanager API naming.

Lamarque Souza committed changes in [kdelibs/KDE/4.11] solid/solid/backends/udev/udevnetworkinterface.cpp:

Do not leak sockets in NetworkInterface::isWireless().

Bernd Buschinski committed changes in [kdelibs/KDE/4.11] khtml/ecma/kjs_data.h:

khtml/ecma: Protect the value in DelayedPostMessage, the "gc" might clean it before we use it

I hope this fixes Bug 264526, but the lack of a 100% reproduceable testcase makes it difficult to confirm.

Kurt Hindenburg committed changes in [kdelibs/KDE/4.11] mimetypes/kde.xml:

media type application/x-konsole is unsupported

remove "application/x-konsole"

Laurent Montel committed changes in [kdepim/KDE/4.11] messageviewer/viewer/viewer_p.cpp:

André Wöbbeking committed changes in [kdepim-runtime/KDE/4.11] /imap:

Don't bother IMAP servers with not supported flags

Created a new method ResourceTask::fromAkonadiToSupportedImapFlags() to convert
Akonadi to IMAP flags supported by the server and use it everywhere instead of

fromAkonadiFlags() was made private to make it impossible to call it by accident.

FIXED-IN: 4.11.3

This also reduces the risk to trigger 287356 as the insert on the IMAP server
doesn't fail due to unsupported IMAP flags.

Dan Vratil committed changes in [kdepim-runtime/KDE/4.11] /imap:

Fix support for IMAP servers with non-standard path separators

FIXED-IN: 4.12


Harald Sitter committed changes in [phonon-gstreamer] gstreamer/medianode.cpp:

assert when we have no tee in an A/V medianode

theory right now is that gstreamer is kaput and fails to factorize the
tee, outside MN nothing accesses the tee so the only way it could become
0x0 (assuming correct construction) is destruction. however since objects
are destructed through the main thread threading problems ought not be the
issue here.

At the very least we'll have an explicit assert so the casual code reader
knows what is going wrong.

Lamarque Souza committed changes in [networkmanagement/nm09] /:

Fix signalQualityChanged and accessTechnologyChanged signals.


David Edmundson committed changes in [ktp-auth-handler/kde-telepathy-0.7] tls-cert-verifier-op.cpp:

This fixes a crash if packagers don't include qca-ossl a runtime
plugin for QCA needed to load SSL Certs.

Note this introduces a new string inside the feature freeze

Aleix Pol Gonzalez committed changes in [muon/2.1] discover/qml/ApplicationOverview.qml:

Don't show the screenshot if it's not ready

Otherwise there are some painting glitches that aren't that fun. Most
likely influenced by some bug in QtQuick.

Jonathan Marten committed changes in [polkit-kde-kcmodules-1] /:

Show a diagnostic message if reading policies fails.

The settings displayed will not be meaningful in this case, but
at least it avoids a fatal assert within Qt.

Development Tools

Aleix Pol Gonzalez committed changes in [kdevelop] projectmanagers/cmake/parser/cmakeprojectvisitor.cpp:

Make it possible to glob directories

It should have worked as well with directories, not closing the bug since
[.*] is still unsupported.
We'll have to write a wildcard to regular expression conversor eventually
since QRegularExpression (in Qt5) doesn't support wildcards anyway.

Andi Fischer committed changes in [umbrello] /:

Documentation info label added to DocWindow. It shows type, name and
flag whether documentation is modified.
Removed unnecessary includes of docwindow.h to reduce dependency

Casian Andrei committed changes in [kolor-manager/kded] /:

Implement the transfer of the color lookup tables via shared memory

A shared memory pool is created to hold all the known color lookup
tables, in sequence. It is like a vector of the tables, in shared
memory. The color lookup tables are registered in the pool and they
become available for the clients.

The clients just need the key for the shared memory segment, and the
indices for the required color lookup tables.

This method of communication should provide a significant performance
boost, without using resources.

Roney Gomes committed changes in [kbounce/keyboard-integration] /:

Enabled user defined key shortcuts.

The previous updates were reworked so now the game allows a player to
defined a custom set of keys to perfom each mouse action supported.

This commit contains a few modifications done by me, but the core work
has been entirely done by Season of KDE's participant Anuj Pahuja.

My modifications are basically a few refinements done to Anuj's work.
What I did:

1. Moved a #include<KAction> from gamewidget.h to gamewidget.cpp.

2. Renamed bindKeys()'s parameter to keyShortcuts. The previous
name denoted a private local pointer used in KBlocks, where all
this code derived from.

3. moveLeft(), moveRight() etc. were renamed to moveCursorLeft(),
moveCursorRight() and so on -- a more meaningful name in
KBounceGameWidget's context.

4. setCursorPosition() was reworked to include more conditions to
move the cursor, which simplified and reduced a few lines from
all moveCursor methods.

5. The methods needed for rotating the cursor and building the wall
were mixed into a single method. This way code duplication is
avoided and a more elegant sollution applied.

Improve memory efficiency and improve conversions

o use KisRandomAccessorNG instead of read/writePlanarBytes
This improves memory efficiecy and it is also much faster/reliable
o simplify KisGmicSimpleConvertor
o add benchmarks/tests related to gmic:
- conversion between pixel formats (gmic->QImage, gmic->KisPaintDevice)
- conversion between Krita colorspace: rgba 8 bit -> rgba 32 bit float
(takes around 10 seconds for 4096x4096 picture)
o whitelist more filters due to this improvements!

Automatic testing:
Curent status of gmic filters in Krita:
- total filters: 260
- known failings (blacklisted filters): 15
- known success: 245
