Google continues CalDav support for everyone, now also adds CardDav

System & Utilities

Android_robotYesterday Google announced that it will not restrict the CalDav access to their calendars to registered partners only, but that they will continue to provide it for everyone. Additionally, Google now offers CardDav support.

A couple of weeks ago Google announced that they would restrict CalDav access to their calendars to registered developers only. That resulted in a huge uproar among developers, users and open standards advocates and made many people wondering if Google will become a closed standards/software company in the future.

However, the pressure (and most likely the bad press and reputation) Google got worked, and they announced that the CalDav API will be continued as an API open for everyone:

In response to those requests, we are keeping the CalDAV API public.

And it becomes even better: CardDav support is added as well, meaning the address data can be accessed via open protocols as well:

And in the spirit of openness, today we’re also making CardDAV – an open standard for accessing contact information across ...read more...

KDE Platform Workspace, and Applications 4.10.4 for openSUSE

System & Utilities

These posts kind of sound like a broken record, right? ;) Anyway, since KDE has released new versions of Platform, Workspaces and Applications as part of the stable release cycle, thanks to the OBS we have packages available for openSUSE 12.2 and 12.3. The 4.10.4 update will also be released as an official update for 12.3 in due time.

Where you can get the packages? Two places, as usual:
  • KDE:Distro:Factory in case you are interested in contributing to packaging for the next openSUSE release;
  • KDE:Release:410 (openSUSE 12.3 or openSUSE 12.2) in case you just want to upgrade to the latest and greatest version
What to look forward to in this release? More than 50 bugs being fixed, including:
  • CSS compliance fixes in KHTML
  • Bug fixes in Gwenview (display after image rotation, duplicate entries in recent folders)
  • Assorted fixes in KMail: polishing of external editor support, CalDAV fixes, UI adjustments…
For more you can always turn to the full list of fixed bugs.

I’m Going to Akademy 2013

System & Utilities
After missed Akademy last year because of my daily work I am happy to say I'm going to Akademy 2013 :-) Today I have bought my flight tickets after two days trying (problem with by credit card). Damn those tickets are expensive and that two days delay made them even more expensive :-( The dollar climbing fast against the Brazilian Real does not help either. Well, now is waiting for the bill to come next month :-/

One of the things I want to do by Akademy date is releasing libnm-qt, libmm-qt and plasma-nm (new applet for network management). Unfortunately, due to personal issues in the past months I could not work on Plasma NM as much as I used to. I am still not pushing many commits to the new Plasma NM repo (git://anongit.kde.org/plasma-nm), just testing, searching for bugs and warning other Plasma NM developers about the problems I find (specially regressions compared to the (now) old (new ...read more...

New Plasma scripting features in 4.11

System & Utilities

Since Martin blogged about the new scripting related features in kwin coming to 4.11 today, I figured that I would do the same for plasma-desktop.

Plasma Desktop Scripting

After having been asked for the ability to read and write from other user config files in Plasma Desktop Scripting for the Nth time, I finally buckled down and implemented it. It is documented on the desktop scripting wiki page and using it looks something like this:

// open the kickoffrc file
var config = ConfigFile('kickoffrc');

// switch to the RecentlyUsed group
config.group = 'RecentlyUsed';

// write an entry into it
config.writeEntry('MaxApplications', 25);


// now put Yes=20 into RecentlyUsed/Test
var config2 = ConfigFile(config, 'Test);
config2.writeEntry('Yes', 20);
This is actually re-using the KConfig bindings written by Sebastian Kügler for QML that we ship in the Plasma Active Settings QML import, so it turned out to be very little work to add it, test it and push it for 4.11.

QML

QML is the way write visual Plasma addons such as plasmoids these days, and so it is the ...read more...

The Luminosity of Free Software Episode 14

System & Utilities


It's that time again: Luminosity! In episode 14 I'll be visiting the following topics as well as taking your questions as we go:

  • Grass roots Free software promotion: A lot of the effort of introducing and generally marketing Free software to the public lands on the shoulders of companies these days. They tend to be able to grab a larger audience than the average individual and they can keep pounding out a message for an extended period of time. Yet .. Free software as a concept and many of the best Free software products are not very well known. Is there an opportunity for effective grass roots promotion?
  • Wesnoth: Looking at my list of possible topics, I realized that I had been covering a fair number of serious topics and very few frivolous and fun ones. So why not .. let's have some fun this week and take a look at Wesnoth, what makes it tick and keeps people not just playing it but still developing it after all these years. We'll try not to get sidetracked into an actual game ...read more...

I going to Akademy 2013!

System & Utilities

It is dangerous as well as exciting to invite more people to your first ever talk in any major conference, and that is what I’ll be doing here. :D

So, yes I’ll be going to Akademy this year (if my visa application doesn’t betray me)! I will be speaking about how I used QtQuick with C++ in my project for KStars during GSoC 2012. Please find more details about my talk here, and if you are planning to attend, do not forget to register yourself here.

Also, thank you so much KDE for supporting my travel and accommodation expenses. This will be my first ever Akademy and my 2nd KDE conference after the awesome conf.KDE.in, 2011 in Bengaluru, India. So, really looking forward to this one! :)

Cheers!

Akademy for everybody

System & Utilities

About six weeks from now the yearly KDE conference 'Akademy' will kick off in Bilbao, Spain! Looking forward to that. I had to ramble a bit on why I think it's worth going there. And a tip for if you still have to book!

Have not booked yet?

Aw, I was late, and I'm paying the price, in terms of money and convenience. There's work and family and in my case a dose of always-lateness with this stuff that got in the way. Probably not different for others. But keep in mind - I never met anybody who who was sorry they went through the trouble of going to Akademy! It's worth it...

Relevant

Akademy is relevant, useful and fun above and beyond just another Free Software event. Seriously. Even in a world of Android, KDE still builds major Free Desktop stuff. Think about Krita going places lately. Think about how KDE PIM still is arguably the only serious Free enterprise-ready mail-calendar-etc solution on the market. There is plenty more at the event: ...read more...

A rich python console and more in Kate editor

System & Utilities

I have done some improvements in the plugins: python_console_ipython, python_autocomplete, python_utils, js_utils, xml_pretty and django_utils. These plugins I added a month and a half ago (except python_console_ipython) to the kate repository. I have done two improvements and a new feature:

  • Now they work with Python2 and Python3 (except python_autocomplete, this only works with Python2, due pysmell dependence)
  • Now they have a configuration page (except python_autocomplete, this should not have configuration parameters)

Page Config Plugins

The new feature is the integration of the python_autocomplete and python_console_ipython plugins with the project plugin. The behaviour of these plugins depends of the loaded project. That is to say, the python_autocomplete plugin autocompletes with our project modules. Currently the kate community is working to add a new python autocomplete  using jedi (this will work with Python2 and Python3).

App stores: the disappointments

System & Utilities

During development of Plasma Active, I resurrected an idea that a couple of us had tinkered with a year or two earlier: creating an open content store. We have ended up creating something fairly different than what is available out there right now and none of these differences are accidental. Before launching into a description of what this system is and how it works, I thought I'd start with a short blog entry describing the things we were not happy with in the state of the art of app stores. Later in the week I'll follow up with a description of our solution. For now, here is a little list of disappointments:


  • Proprietary implementations. For some reason there haven't been significant Free software offerings in this area, even in Free software contexts!
  • Centralized control. Trusting your content delivery to a gatekeeper entity's whims is madness.
  • It's a store. Emphasis on "a": one front end, one catalog of content.
  • App stores are .. well .. app stores. Music and books and art and other things are usually presented separately. 
  • Feedback mechanisms are quite obviously afterthoughts. ...read more...

News from the 2013/05 Gentoo KDE team meeting

System & Utilities

Last week we had our monthly Gentoo KDE team meeting; here are few details that are probably worth sharing.

  • So far we've provided the useflag "semantic-desktop" which in particular controls the nepomuk functionality. Some components of KDE require this functionality unconditionally, and if you try to build without it, bugs and build failures may occur. In addition, by now it is easily and reliably possible to disable e.g. the file indexer at runtime. So, we've decided that starting with KDE 4.11 we will remove the useflag and hard-enable the functionality and the required dependencies in the ebuilds. The changes are being done already in the KDE overlay in the live ebuilds (which build upstream git master and form the templates for the upcoming 4.11 releases).
  • After recent experiences the plan to drop kdepim-4.4 is off the table again. We will keep it in the portage tree as alternative version and try to support it until it finally breaks.
  • In the meantime we (well, mainly Chris Reffett) have started in the KDE overlay to package Plasma Active, ...read more...

More Nepomuk Performance Upgrades

System & Utilities

As you might have read, the 4.11 release of Nepomuk is a lot faster while doing writes and therefore indexing is going to much faster. However, read performance was nearly the same.

This weekend, I decided to optimize the read performance.

Architecture

All application communicate to Nepomuk via the Storage Service which acts like a server. It is responsible for loading the ontologies, managing virtuoso and sending change notifications. The read communications happen over a local socket whereas the writes are sent over dbus.

Original Architecture

The Storage service communicates with virtuoso via odbc, which interally also uses a local socket. This architecture is quite similar to that of Akonadi.

Cutting the middle man

I initially started with many optimizations in Soprano where we use ODBC to communicate with virtuoso. These gave a good 30% increase in performance. However, the largest increase in performance was by removing the local socket communication between applications and the storage service.

New Architecture

All applications now directly communicate via ...read more...

Getting involved in Free Software

System & Utilities

Top of the World
I frequently get the question, by mail or over social networks:

But how do I get involved in $PROJECT?
Now a common answer is 'just do it' while others often point to resources like the KDE Developers Beginners Guide and Contribute to openSUSE, or write a simple how-to for building a package. But I usually don't actually reply with links to any of those. Mostly, people have found these resources by themselves.

What they want to know now is how to, you know, actually do it! And as that question can actually be answered rather project-independent so I thought it would be useful to write it down here.

Step one - Build the Code and get Familiar

After reading the various guides and how-to's, you set up a development environment. Be sure you can run the unstable application(s) or hack on a ...read more...

Plasma Workspaces 4.11: A long term release

System & Utilities

We are nearing the soft feature freeze for the 4.11 release, and that seemed like a good time to share some news. Plasma Workspaces 4.11 is going to significant for two reasons:

  1. It will be the last feature release in the 4.x series of Plasma Workspaces. Feature development will switch fully to the Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5 based Plasma Workspaces 2.
  2. We will be providing stabilization releases (bug fixes, translation improvements, etc.) for two years for the 4.11 release of KDE Plasma Workspaces.
Before going into more details, let me offer a preemptive clarification:
This does not effect, in any way, anything other than the code currently in the kde-workspace repository. Applications are not affected, kdelibs and kderuntime will continue on as they currently are (with kdelibs in a feature freeze of its own already). I fully expect there to be a 4.12 and likely a 4.13 release of the applications, and how long that goes on will be up to the application developers and release team.
With that out of the way, some details!

Long Term Release

Porting Krita to OpenGL 3.1/ES 2.0

System & Utilities

Krita was the first painting application with an OpenGL accelerated canvas. We had that before Photoshop... Which also meant that the code was getting quite old fashioned. These days, life is supposed to be better. More flexible in any case. However, even though a 2D canvas is a simple thing, once you factor in rotation, zooming, panning and so on, the potential for bugs is quite big, and we've been fixing bugs for ages in the old code.

So I didn't want to throw that away, but have as clean and straightforward as possible a port from the old code to start with. The old code mostly looked like this (for painting the transparency checkers background):


KisCoordinatesConverter *converter = coordinatesConverter();

QTransform textureTransform;
QTransform modelTransform;
QRectF textureRect;
QRectF modelRect;

converter->getOpenGLCheckersInfo(&textureTransform, &modelTransform, &textureRect, &modelRect);

KisConfig cfg;
GLfloat checkSizeScale = KisOpenGLImageTextures::BACKGROUND_TEXTURE_CHECK_SIZE / static_cast(cfg.checkSize());

textureTransform *= QTransform::fromScale(checkSizeScale / KisOpenGLImageTextures::BACKGROUND_TEXTURE_SIZE,
checkSizeScale / KisOpenGLImageTextures::BACKGROUND_TEXTURE_SIZE);

glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
glLoadIdentity();
glViewport(0, 0, width(), height());
glOrtho(0, width(), height(), 0, NEAR_VAL, FAR_VAL);

glMatrixMode(GL_TEXTURE);
glLoadIdentity();
loadQTransform(textureTransform);

glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glLoadIdentity();
loadQTransform(modelTransform);

glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, m_d->openGLImageTextures->backgroundTexture());
glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);

Amarok 2.7.1 Released!

System & Utilities

Hi there, while we've been working very hard on the next Amarok feature release, the 2.8, we also haven't forgot the majority of our users using the stable versions.

Welcome Amarok 2.7.1, a very close relative of 2.7.0 with just a couple of very important bug fixes. The 2.7.1 is also an opportunity for Arch Linux to package it correctly. :-)

Don't fear that we've made just 8 commits since 2.7.0. In fact, we've made over 300 by 25 different people! Look forward for better transcoding, ASX playlist and Opus audio format support, improved MusicBrainz tag guessing and improvements of existing features all over the place for Amarok 2.8.0.

4.11 Soft Feature Freeze in 7 days!

System & Utilities

Remember the 4.11 Soft Feature Freeze is in 7 days so try to get your features ready for merging as soon as possible. If you add your features to the Feature Plan you get two weeks more until Hard Feature Freeze. Even if you don't need those two weeks you should add them anyway since it really helps other teams like promo, Q/A, etc. to have the features listed in one place.

Short Tip: egrep – using grep with more than one expression

System & Utilities

920839987_135ba34fff
I stumbled across an old blog post of mine about using grep with more than one expression: in the old days I used -e several times, one for each new expression. But as stressed in the comments that way is neither convenient nor reliable on ll platforms. And I have developed as well, so today I usually use egrep if I need to grep for several expressions. Thus, here are some short notes about using it.

The multiple arguments you are searching for a passed to egrep separated by pipes. For example, if you want to grep the output of lspci for all audio and video controllers, the correct command is:


$ lspci|egrep -i 'audio|vga'
00:05.0 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] (rev a2)

( Yes, I know, I write my blog post on pretty old hardware right now ;-) )

egrep does understand more than two ...read more...

The Breakouts: UEFI

System & Utilities

KDE Project:

Me and Rohan and Harald spent the day playing with the cheapo Sony Vaio laptop I got with Windows 8 and UEFI firmware.

This laptop has many partitions:
sda1 is fat32 and contains a Boot and a Microsoft EFI boot loaders
sda2 is ntfs and contains Windows Recovery bits
sda3 is efi/fat32 and contains a Boot, a Microsoft, a kubuntu and a ubuntu EFI boot loader
sda4 is a Microsoft reserved parition and won't mount, spooky
sda5 is an ntfs partition and has Windows 8 on it
sda6 is ext4 and I install Ubuntu and Kubuntu to it
sda7 is a linux-swap partition

I've no idea why there are two efi partitions
I've no idea why there's both an ntfs windows recovery partition and a microsoft reserved partition.

We installed Kubuntu but it didn't set up Grub and we couldn't do much useful at the Grub command line.

Visual harmony in Plasma Workspaces 2

System & Utilities

One of the big things we've accomplished on the road to Plasma Workspaces 2 is making all the desktop "chrome" use Qt Quick (nee QML). The log out dialog, the lock screen, the splash screen, the log in screen, the activity manager and widgets explorer .. everything.

(Well, with the exception of KRunner, which I actually have rendering with QML in a branch in kde-workspace, though it is not quite complete yet. You can do searches, results come back, etc. but a few things like configuration are missing.)

We recently defined a new package type, the Look and Feel package, that will hold all of the QML used to render these various components. The idea is simple: by having everything in one package, you will only need to select your preferred look in one place and the entire desktop will conform. This is a natural extension of the ideas behind the SVG theming, bringing consistency to the user interface itself.

I'm very excited about this as it will allow us to put some of the professional, elegant touches ...read more...

Krita 2.8 (prealpha): New "pseudo-infinite" canvas feature

— "Darn it! Again no space on my canvas for the feet! What now?"

Does this sound familiar to you? Does going to the canvas resize dialog break your workflow? Don't be frustrated anymore! Now you can just scroll down, click and... Presto! Add those happy feet to your drawing!

Now if you scroll the image behind the edge a wide button appears which you can use to expand your image up to the size of your screen!

Mataro Sessions II: the breakouts

System & Utilities

KDE Project:

Notes from breakout on Homerun:

  • Needs to move to Extragear
  • no upstream designer in Plasma so hard to change fundementals like app menu
  • KWin would be against it as default, uses full screen blue, no visual consistency between it and dashboard
  • Does not show app generic names
  • netrunner says full screen is distracting for a menu
  • no filters
  • no recent apps

Notes from breakout on High DPI sceens:

  • see the wiki page
  • faking it with large font not really accurate, many more problems, see screenshot
  • needs someone with a high dpi monitor to test and fix

Upcoming Krita 2.7: Updated Drag & Drop and Clipboard functionality

System & Utilities

Recently we spent some time on polishing the Drag & Drop and Copy & Paste functionality in Krita. It turned out that these simple things are very important for users, since they allow integrate Krita into user's workflow better. It's a pity we were not able to pay much attention to them for some time, so as time passed they became a bit buggy. Now the bugs are gone and I can say for sure that there is no bugs in these systems! (at least bugzilla and me don't know any :)

Here is a short list of capabilities you can use to integrate Krita into your workflow (will be publicly available starting from Krita 2.7 Beta 2):

  1. Clipboard. Now the pasted image always gets centered right. And thank to the patch by our new contributor Sahil Nagpal the Custom Image dialog doesn't go insane when finds something in the Clipboard :)
  2. Drag-and-Drop of Image-objects. You can drop any image (from Gimp or Chromium) to Krita canvas and it will be centered in ...read more...

colord-kde 0.3.0 released!

System & Utilities

It’s been a while since I want to do a new colord-kde release, the fact is that there is still some stuff to do and I have to balance the time between a bunch of other stuff I do in parallel, I just found boring stick to one thing at time :)

This release is very recommended as it has lots of fixes compared to 0.2.0, some distros shipped backports to some of those issues but over the last week I have fixed even more stuff. Here is a quick list of changes:

  • Lots of new translations (thanks to KDE tranlation teams)
  • Fix setting an ICC profile while KDE SC is starting
  • Fix setting the ICC_PROFILE X atom that applications like Krita, digikam, gimp use (I was impressed by how long it took to some user actually notice this but I just guess there aren’t many users doing color correction on apps…)
  • Add a mimetype handler to handle ICC profile files, so that when you click on an ICC file a dialog asks you if ...read more...
