This Week...

In KTouch there is an easy way again to train on self-supplied texts. Systemtray makes the grid view more dynamically sized, remove pulse animation when battery is low to save energy even more. KCachegrind adds "cost per function call" column in the call view. Kdeconnect improves package dispatch to the different plugins. Konversation makes it possible to disable notifications for certain highlights. Important optimizations in Kate code completion and Dolphin item sorting.

José Manuel Santamaría Lema committed changes in [parley/KDE/4.11] src/parleydocument.cpp:

Don't crash when downloading .tar.7z files with KNS.

If I just download it manually, uncompress the *.tar.7z file and feed the kvtml
file into parley it doesn't crash.

There are 2 separate problems involved here:
1) KNS doesn't work with *.tar.7z files.
2) Even if the the file format of the file downloaded from KNS isn't recognized
for now, parley shouldn't crash.

The patch in this reviewboard is intended to fix the problem 2) and it was made
with help from Aleix Pol (thanks!).

Just in case you are curious about the problem 1) - the related code from
kdelibs is the following:

* knewstuff/knewstuff3/core/installation.cpp
(function Installation::installDownloadedFileAndUncompress)
Here knewstuff tries to use KTar to deal with the downloaded file.

* files under kdecore/compression/*
Here is kfilterdev, if I'm not mistaken this is what KTar uses to deal with
files compressed gz,bzip,etc. The thing is: there is no filter for *.7z files,
so that's why they can't work in KNS right now.

Ensure neither queue nor thread keep a reference to a previous job.

See comments on JobTests::JobsAreDestroyedAfterFinish:

Verify that neither the queue nor the thread keep a reference to the job
after completing it.

This is necessary because user-allocated objects like queue policies may
be registered with the jobs. If the jobs stick around until the thread
or queue are deleted, the user-allocated objects may have gone out of
scope or been deleted already, causing potential errors. From
ThreadWeaver's point of view, a job seizes to exist once the processing
thread asks for the next job.

[kwin] Do not allow Qt to raise decoration widget above the Client

If the user actions menu is closed Qt looks for a QWidget at the mouse
position. If it finds one it tries to activate and raise it. If the
QWidget at the mouse position is a window decoration, it gets raised
above the Client. This makes the window unfortunately unusable.

To prevent this from happening we listen for the ZOrderChange event
in our event filter on the decoration widget and unconditionally lower
the decoration widget again - we never want the decoration widget to
be above our Client, so we can just always lower it. We have to use
the low level functionality and cannot use QWidget::lower as that would
result in a loop.

Fix crash when removing a notification while we are adding one

Reading you can see that it happens that we are doing a
78 0x00007f4eff8c5ffb in QDeclarativeListModel::insert (this=0x1ebbdb0, index=0, valuemap=...) at util/qdeclarativelistmodel.cpp:436
and then we end up reentring and doing
16 0x00007f4eff8c737f in QDeclarativeListModel::remove (this=0x1ebbdb0, index=6) at util/qdeclarativelistmodel.cpp:402

Some of the stuff that depends on the QDeclarativeListModel doesn't seem to like getting a "remove" while a "insert" is happening and to be honest m in no mood to fix that, so basically I'm protecting against that happening in our QML code. From what i read you have to be extremely unlucky since the timer only triggers each 10 minutes and it has to trigger at the same time a notification is being added, but oh well, the backtrace points to it and two different people in two different systems say it has stopped the crashes so I don't think it hurts to have this in.

Dan Vratil committed changes in [kdepimlibs/KDE/4.11] akonadi/resourcebase.cpp:

Wait for changes from resource to be written to Akonadi before marking change as processed

This fixes a problem with invalid RIDs after inter-resource moves.
When there is an another changeReplay for the just moved item
scheduled in the new parent resource, the item will have invalid RID
(or rather RID assigned to it by the previous parent resource).
It's because the ItemModifyJob dispatched from ResourceBase::changesCommitted()
with the new RID is not finished yet when the next task is dispatched,
and so the item in resource's EntityCache is not invalidated
and the resource will use it instead of the updated one.

By waiting for the ItemModifyJob dispatched from changesCommited()
to finish before marking the change as processed and dispatching
next task we make sure that in case the next task involves the
same item the change will be stored in Akonadi and the item will
be invalidated in local caches, forcing the resource to fetch the
item again from Akonadi before starting the task.

This fixes 'Invalid uidset' error reported by IMAP resources after
the MailDispatcher agent moves the mail from local Outbox to remote
Sent folder and updates it's flags.

MySqlEmbeddedStorage: fix failure to start embedded server because of wrong options

This was because we were passing --myisam-recover-options and this
options does not exist in MySQL 5.1 (and MariaDB). The *command-line*
option (as opposed to system variable name) to set recovery mode is
MySQL <= 5.1: --myisam-recover [1]
MySQL >= 5.5: --myisam-recover-options, should also accept
--myisam-recover [2]
MariaDB: --myisam-recover [3]

*However*, the *system variable name* has always been named
myisam_recover_options, that's why it worked in Amarok <= 2.8.

No need to backport this because of the above.

Simple fix is to rename the option to --myisam-recover

Improved package dispatch to the different plugins

Before this patch, all plugins had to discard received packages that were
not for themselves. This could be a security problem (a plugin could sniff
other plugin's packages) and also adds some complexity and processing.

This patch makes the device instance aware of what services are required
by the different plugins and when a package is received the corresponding
plugins will get the package.

These services will be listed on the plugin's desktop file, so the user
can decide whether to enable a plugin.

Note that this only works for receiving, not sending.

David Faure committed changes in [kcachegrind] /:

Add "cost per call" column in the call view.

This is especially useful when comparing two callgrind runs, if the number
of calls to the methods can vary between runs (e.g. number of widget repaints).

This column is unaffected by the "use percentages" setting, which makes
it even more useful (one can look at overall percentages and at cost-per-call
at the same time).

Paint full splash screen in QML.

This is especially nice since it reduces the maintenance whenever
we increase the version number. Now we simply show the version
of the compiled KDevelop application which is much better than having
to update a pixmap everytime.

And if the QML fails to load for some reason, well its a bug and
should be fixed. Having a pixmap fallback for that does not make
sense in my eyes.

merge branch 'custom-lessons'

And with that, there is an easy way again to train on self-supplied
texts in KTouch. This fills the biggest remaining feature regression
in comparison to KTouch 1.x, only in a much improved way.

Instead of providing a simple file dialog to pick a text and use
that immediately, we organize the custom lessons in a special
course so the user can track his progress on these lessons like
for the built-in courses. Also the custom lessons are kept separately
for each user profile and keyboard layout.

In the editor for custom lessons, a much simplified form of the full
blown course editor, we offer the usual quality checks. This is
important, so the user has a chance to identify characters he can't
type with his keyboard before he actually hits them during training.

can always set the margins to 0 in the dialog

Systemtray: Delegate Sizing

This commit makes the gridview more dynamically sized. I think in a
world of Retina displays, we should move away from pixel-based sizes as
much as possible. From this point on, protocols are simply not allowed
to determine the size of their items. We can still apply tricks in the
possible x11 protocol, and have support for images and movies of fixed
size working well. The input area absolutely has to be client-defined,
we can't have applications tell us "the interactive area for this app is
22x22 pixels" -- that is not going to happen, as it simply breaks on
different dpi *and* input devices.

As such, the item size is now more dynamic, the logic is not complete
yet, but the direction of this gets clearer. This makes the "basic"
itemSize a "recommendation" to the UI for now (it will become an even
more internal detail later).

Otherwise, the system tray is coming along nicely. What works:

- Display of status notifier items (not interactive yet, just icons)
- Embedding of plasmoids such as battery, network
- Status: items are shown and hidden (moved between the models, really)

A few things that I want to improve at a later stage is the messy popup
situation. We can probably embed the popups of the plasmoids and
statusitems into the systemtray popup and streamline this navigational
process a bit, while keeping the same interaction model.

We're obviously not feature-complete yet and it's all very
work-in-progressish, but it's "coming along nicely". :)

Bookkeeping for tasks

This makes migration of task objects between shown and hidden work.
Depending on their status, and the shown property of the task, the task
is moved between the lists when its status updates. This commit also
fixes forwarding the status in the PlasmoidInterface, which wasn't wired
up yet.

Memory management has changed a bit, too, we now keep references to the
declarative lists in the private object.

In order to make shown / hidden preferences for tasks work, we need to
book-keep this information in host, not in the individual tasks (as
these are global objects, and we want to change configuaration per host.

Added an option for High Quality image downsampling for OpenGL canvas

1) This option activates a custom shader, which filters the image
with a variation of trapezoidal filter using "one-but-nearest"
mipmap level. This gives quite decent results, although it might
be not perfect from the maths point of view.

2) The patch also sets the default texture size to 256. Otherwise
activation of mipmap generation will make the painting with smaller
brushes insanely slow. This happens because the mipmap is regenerated
for the whole texture every time we change a small portion of it.

Store the selected items in a more efficient way

Since Dolphin 2.0, we have stored the selected items in a QSet<int>,
which is neither space-efficient nor particularly fast when inserting
many items which are in a consecutive range.

This commit replaces the QSet<int> by a new class "KItemSet", which
stores the items in a sorted list of ranges. For each range, we only
store the first index and the length of the range, so we need a lot
less memory for most common selection patterns, and we also save quite
a few CPU cycles in many situations, because adding an item to the
KItemSet will in many cases not need a memory allocation at all, and
it's particularly easy when inserting sorted items into the KItemSet in
a row.

KItemSet contains a minimal subset of QSet's API which makes it
suitable as a drop-in replacement for our needs. It also has iterators,
such that the items can be iterated through easily, also with foreach.
One advantage of KItemSet compared to QSet<int> is that the items are
always iterated through in ascending order.

Optimize Kate code completion.

a) Don't resort when we narrowed the filter, as then the sorting

b) Don't rematch items whose text did not change. This is mostly
an issue for KDevelop e.g. which has often multiple completion models
per view (word completion, language completion, snippets) and up
until now we would filter all items three times.

Sort in items in two stages to speed up natural sorting

Sort the items in a folder first according to their name, without doing
a natural/locale-aware sorting. This is very fast, but the order of the
items is then already close to the final order in most cases.

The number of expensive natural comparisons required to sort the items
is thus greatly reduced.

In my experiments with a folder with 100,000 items, the time required
to sort the files was reduced by 63% with this patch.

Therefore, it is sufficient to store the position of the top left
corner of the QRectF in a QPointF and construct the QRectF on demand.

It can cause full-screen repaints and causes significant stress to the CPU/GPU and thus to the battery,

Also, the systemtray in Plasma 2 is likely to have its own animation of tray icons when they set the
NeedsAttention status. So just kill it. :-)
