KDE-Forum.org Relaunched, KDE Wiki Back Online

Several weeks ago the KDE Dot News server was compromised. After a prolonged and painful downtime, we're pleased to announce that KDE-Forum.org and KDE Wiki are now back and functioning. KDE-Forum.org is now in the capable hands of Christian Kienle of QtForum.org who gracefully offered to take over after the former admin decided to pursue other interests. I'd like to thank both these two as well as David Legg, Lukas Masek, Bernhard Rosenkraenzer, our sponsor Pierre-Emmanual Muller of CafeWiki, and the KDE Security Team for helping in bringing back these services.

Kate is slowly approaching the lead position. Vim will be bet next year. Rest of the pack isnt interesting for me....

Amarok is now a close second (31 %) of xmms (45 %). No doubt xmms
will be bet next year as more and more people start using it.

It's nice to see a modern editor at last getting the attention, and doing well. Kate/KWrite actually beats EMACS 2:1, way to go:-)


By Morty at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

Yes, and it's still less convenient than good ol' Nedit...


By Anonymous at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

That may be, but according to this poll Nedit finished last. Even beaten by Joe:-)

While Evolution still won last year ahead of KMail, this year it was falling back into 3rd place, letting pass KMail for the first time.

Regards the File-management category at the LQ Awards, if you add KFM to Konqeuror, Konqueror has an even more convincing win over the competition.

Konqueror still won File-management anyway though, and came second in the browser category ;)

Konqueror is an incredible browser. Now if only those few annoying bugs could get fixed..

One that annoys me most by the moment is this:
http://www.tulli.fi/fi/03_Yksityishenkilot/02_Autoverotus/07_Prosenttita...

See the drop-down menus flashing as it constantly reloads the menu entries. This started to happen around the time when 3.1 was released, and it still seems to exist on the cvs head (http bug perhaps?). Same bug comes up constantly with different sites (at least for me), even with internet-banking. And before anyone points out bugs.kde.org - yes this bug was reported roughly two years ago :/

Hello,

can you tell us the bug number? I have saved the source to a local file and opened it (same problem), then I cut out more and more as long as the problem was reproduced. The next thing must be the traitor and the problem lies/is triggered by this code:

I cannot fix it, but I could report it.

I suspect that this onChange event is constantly happened. It may be as easy as to optimize the "changed by init" way.

More interesting is that close by there is

which does not trigger the problem. I can remove it, but it still reloads all the time (and a hell quick on local disk).

When you submit this to the bug (or let me) I guess it will be resolved by 3.4 and I believe everybody can do this to non-working pages. :-)

Hmm, can't seem to find it anymore. May have gotten lost while changing ISP(?) few months ago. Feel free to report it again.

And the bug about gmail ... it still hasn't been fixed ... and i'm using KDE 3.3.92 build of SuSE!

I still get that dreaded "Oops. The operation could not be completed. Please try again in a few seconds" error box!

And Konqui took 1st place in file manager category!


By konqui-fan at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

Yep, congrats to David Faure and everyone else in the Konqi team - a fast, comprehensive file-manager :)


By anon at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

If nobody else cares, I will say it: Great to have both sites back.


By Anonymous at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

Does this mean the Konqi developers will bless us with a KDE wiki search shortcut ala `wp:stirling engine`? hint, hint. :-)

Regards, and Thanks,

Mark


By mark at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

I'm confused. Konqueror already provides a wp: shortcut that points to wikipedia. Is this what you were referring to?


By Zippy at Tue, 2005/02/08 - 6:00am

No, he means he would like to have the same thing for the *KDE* wiki.

There doesn't seem to be a good place to ask KDE API questions outside of #kde-devel. The kde-devel list seems a little inapproriate given that it also serves the purpose of discussing the development of KDE itself.

Navigating through the API docs isn't always easy.

> The kde-devel list seems a little inapproriate

kde-devel is the correct place.

> also serves the purpose of discussing the development of KDE itself

No, that is (mostly) kde-core-devel.


By Chris Howells at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

OK, will do the next time I get stumped :)


By Ian Monroe at Sun, 2005/02/06 - 6:00am

There is a forum for KDE development on QtForum.
