KRDC, QCA, etc

I've been meaning to blog for a while, and finally managed to get there.

I'd like to start off by pointing out the awesome work done by Urs Wolfer on Krdc (or KRDC, if you prefer) as his Google Summer of Code project. I sometimes wonder if it might not deserve a new name given how much new code has gone into it. If you didn't catch it, I definitely recommend reading last weeks Commit Digest for a description of the changes and some nice screen shots of the new user interface.

Thinking / ranting on the GPL changes

I have been working on providing Microsoft Exchange capability for Akonadi on-and-off for a while. It is coming together - I can suck messages off the server into akonadiconsole. More on that later (or as part of the commit-digest, perhaps).

Back in business

A (another) big thanks to the KDE sysadmin team for getting kdedevelopers.org back in business.

akademy - not attending

I really would have liked to have been in Dublin this weekend, but unfortunately I am much too heavily committed at work. I definitely plan to be at akademy 2007, and also at http://linux.conf.au in January 2007. So I hope to catch up with some of you then.

More XML paper specification stuff

Despite being very tired from my day job, I managed to get it together enough to put together a kfile-plugin (metadata support) for the XML Paper Specification format. It pulls out whatever data is available (sometimes not much, but thumbnails are reasonably common). It is committed into trunk (in kdegraphics/kfile-plugins/xps)

KRDC Roadmap

KDE Remote Desktop Connection now has a roadmap for KDE4 development.

We still have a lot of work to do (well, just about everything on the roadmap :-)), but at least we have a plan for what that work is going to be.

KDE4 porting - getting better

After Laurent suggested it might be dead, I decided to try to resurrect the lost soul known as KDE Remote Desktop Connection (KRDC, a.k.a krdc for the command line junkies), which provides Remote Desktop Protocol and Virtual Network Computer (VNC) support for KDE. I use it a bit to administer a Windows application server we have in the office, and really didn't want to be without it for KDE4.

foo->update()

I'm in Melbourne (Victoria, Australia) this week for work.

I'd hoped to catch up with Hamish Rodda, but he's in Norway. Sounds like the flights (36 hours?) might have been a bit harsh, but there is certainly a lot of interesting stuff coming out of Trysil.

XML Paper Specification (XPS) - initial KDE support

Microsoft have been working on a PDF competitor, call XPS (for [w:XML Paper Specification|XML Paper Specification]). Basically, it gives you a way to represent a printable document (as in a traditional document made up of a number of pages) in XML.

developer.kde.org work

I've been giving some of developer.kde.org a bit of love. In particular, the "Joining Us" page (http://developer.kde.org/joining/) is now hopefully a bit more useful on how to get involved in various aspects of KDE development - not just coding, but all aspects. There is a lot more to do - hoperfully I'll get some more done over this weekend.
