KDE Commit-Digest for 9th November 2008

In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Merge of the KMail Summer of Code project (including a reworked folder tree and a new message list) to trunk (in time for KDE 4.2). The alternative "QuickSand" interface is integrated into KRunner. Option to enable image support in Klipper, with the start of efforts to convert the utility to KConfigXT. Phonon intuitively responds to removal of internal (non-hotpluggable) sound devices. First version of scripted services for browsing content from BBC (with basic search ability) and NPR, and beginnings of a SongKick applet in Amarok 2. Use of Solid in Digikam to identify pictures already downloaded from cameras. RAW image support added to slideshows in kipi-plugins (used by Digikam, etc). Scripted ability to resume paused torrents after a configurable amount of time in KTorrent. Initial support for extraction of EMF files from the Compound File Binary Format (Microsoft OLE file format) in Okular. Practice start dialog with statistics and settings display in Parley. Simple graphs and multiple graphs working in Rocs. A basic GetHotNewStuff implementation in Palapeli. Further work in KDevelop. New converter between KPIM and KABC distribution lists in KDE-PIM. Support for import of KnowIt files into KJots. "Eyes" applet moves to kdeplasma-addons, while "kbstateapplet" moves to kdereview. Python bindings for the Plasma library move to kdebindings. Plasma moves to from kdebase/workspace to kdelibs.Read the rest of the Digest here.

I suspect there wouldn't be such activity on Danny's days off. He seems quite busy.

Danny's turbo is on again :)

I'm still waiting for when he catches up and starts doing digests for future dates. Might even be a nice joke for april fools *hint hint*.

wow, I'd love to see a commit digest for december 2009 already. Must include lots of cool, interesting stuff.

BTW why refer to april fools? You doubt Danny can do this? If the last few days have shown us anything, it's that Danny can do more than we thought was possible ;-)

I personally do not like the new default display for the message list. I wish when new features are added that they wouldn't be set as the default, but would leave the current settings as they are.
