- Edit tags of multiple files, e.g. the artist, album, year and genre of all files of an album typically have the same values and can be set together.
- Generate tags from filenames
- Generate tags from the contents of tag fields
- Generate filenames from tags
- Rename and create directories from tags
- Generate playlist files
- Automatically convert upper and lower case and replace strings
- Import from, MusicBrainz, Discogs, Amazon and other sources of album data

Older releases:

Changes in 3.0.1:
* Fixed installation and integratin of hicolor application icon.

Changes in 3.0:
* Yakuake was ported to KDE Frameworks 5 and Qt 5.
* A new default skin follows the Plasma 5 Breeze design.
* Terminal focus is now preserved more reliably when closing and reopening Yakuake.
* Config changes made via the title bar menu are now synced to disk immediately, and thus preserved if Yakuake is killed instead of quit gracefully.
* The option to auto-update tab titles with the title bar contents no longer interferes with manually setting a tab title. To return to auto-updating just clear the title.
* Performance improvements in the compositor-unassisted animation code path.
* Fixed bug causing incorrect window height calculation in multi-monitor systems.

KEncFS 1.6.0 (KDE System Tool)

Sun, 2016/02/28 - 2:53pm
ThumbnailKEncFS 1.6.0
(KDE System Tool)
KEncFS is a gui frontend for encfs. With KEncFS you can easily create, mount, umount and delete your encrypted filesystem.

Now it works in KDe4 and in KdePlasma5.

Use of KEncFS is very simple: to create a new encrypted filesystem you must create new or select two existent dirs, one directory to archive encrypted files and another directory to mount on the encrypted filesystem with encfs (a mountpoint). After this, you can select a conventional ID for your encrypted filesystem and then a password.

With KEncFS you can also manage your encrypted filesystem. You can browse, mount, umount, remove from list (not from disk) your encrypted filesystem, in easy way.

Customizable Weather Plasmoid (CWP) 1.12.1 (Plasmoid Binary)

Sat, 2016/02/13 - 12:01pm
ThumbnailCustomizable Weather Plasmoid (CWP) 1.12.1
(Plasmoid Binary)
For >=KDE-4.2 (no plasma 5 support)

NEWS: I currently don't have the time to update the plasmoid or even work on a plasma 5 version. Sorry! But I will be happy to have either someone else take over the project or to publish corrected xml files to at least maintain the kde 4 version of this plasmoid

This is another weather plasmoid.
It aims to be highly customizable, but a little harder to setup than other weather plasmoids.
Nearly any weather forecast provider can be used, as long as the data is provided as html files (no flash).
The information how to extract the information from these html files is stored inside xml files.
Commands like grep, head, tail, sed, awk, ... will do this job.

For now, xml files for the weather providers (°C) (city identifier example: BRXX0043) (°C) (city identifier example: 80331 or UKXX0085) (°C) (city identifier example: Ciudad-de-Mexico-MXDF0132) (°C) (city identifier example: Paris-FRXX0076) (°C) (city identifier example: New-Delhi-INXX0096) (°C) (city identifier example: London-UKXX0085) (°C) (city identifier example: DE0006515) (°C) (city identifier example: 12844) (°F) (city identifier example: 12844) (°C) (city identifier example: 101010100) US (°C) (city identifier example: 85001) US (°F) (city identifier example: 85001) world (°C) (city identifier example: 305448) world (°F) (city identifier example: 305448) (°C) (city identifier example: Roma) (°C) (city identifier example: Warszawa) (°C) (city identifier example: 4944) (°C) (city identifier example: id=2643743 or q=London,UK) (°F) (city identifier example: id=5506956 or q=Las Vegas,US)

are included, but feel free to write your own ones.
Please note, that some of the xml files might not work properly for all locations.
If they don't, try to update your definition files: either install latest cwp release or/and download latest xml definition
file package from
and unpack the xml files into ~/.kde4/share/apps/cwp (the cwp application folder inside your kde directory).

To access extended information about current weather condition, left-click inside the current weather description!
The time, when the provider updated his weather information is shown italic when clicked on update time.

CWP saves current weather data on exit inside $HOME/./share/apps/cwp folder, so after crashes you might want to clean up
this directory, or completely remove it.

Parts of the source code are taken from weather plasmoid 0.4, KDE 4.2, qimageblitz, yaWP.
Thanks to the developers!

If you experience any bugs, please report them here.
plasmoidviewer plasma_applet_cwp
or starting plasma from the console
might give you some debug information.

MathMod 4.0 (KDE Scientific)

Tue, 2016/02/09 - 2:35pm
ThumbnailMathMod 4.0
(KDE Scientific)
MathMod is a powerful yet easy to use software solution that allows you to perform complex 3D and 4D surface modelling. With it you are able to generate models and visualize them in implicit or parametric form.
MathMod is a complete rewrite of K3DSurf with many new features and optimizations.
Isosurfaces and parametric surfaces support
3D and 4D hypersurfaces support
Rotation, scale and morph effect support
Load scripts in Json file format / export the result as OBJ
Pigment/Texture/Noise support
Extensive examples (332) and support forum
Export K3DSurf (.k3ds) scripts to MathMod (.js) scripts

Changelog for MathMod-4.0 (08/02/2016)
1) Add user defined parameters (up to 20) with sliders linked to them for real time mathematical models exploration (see "fhelix1" script video )
The sliders properties (min, max, step and initial position) are defined in the script but can be edited
with a new MathMod module (see "Sliders" tabulation).
2) Add 152 new advanced script examples (for a total of 332) . They are also kept in a separate MathMod file collection
"advancedmodels.js" because it's a separate project that is updated more often than MathMod itself.
Follow updates :
Facebok :
3) Implementation of some PovRay internal functions as MathMod scripts/internal functions.
Implemented functions are : fhelix1,fhelix2,f_hex_y,fmesh
4) Code cleaning and optimization.
All your comments and suggestions are welcome.
