KJSEmbed support for event handling

KJSEmbed can now handle events. At the moment only mouse events, but the rest will come soon. The example below shows how this can be used in practice. Note that I haven't committed this code yet, so it'll be a couple of days before you can use it.

Fixing bug 5241

Today I fixed the oldest KOrganizer bug which was in the bug tracking system. The report was more than three years old. It was about the "awkward implementation of the 'add event' use case" and said that it should be possible to select a time range with the mouse and then create the event by just typing the summary. Ok, now it finally works.

New evil widget style...

Well, I said originally that I wasn't going to release this, but the reactions have just been too funny so far to pass it up.

It's not an official release, yet, of course - I still have to implement the rendering code for the sliders and tabbars and probably a few other widgets too. But the sneak preview is out...

KDE Jabber server

Long time no posts from me, I have been buried in exams work - but that is now over!

A while ago I found a chatlog posted on the web where a few persons obviously close to the Jabber project (or even Jabber Inc.) were discussing ways of promoting Jabber. One of their thoughts was how about setting up a server for the KDE folks?

Regardless if it's Jabber sponsored or not, what do you think about a KDE Jabber server?

How much I don't know about the KDE framework

I've been porting the Kopete config dialogs for the plugins for the last couple of days. Man, I knew that I knew very little of what the KDE framework offers, but I had no clue. :( The stuff in kutils (The KConfigureDialog stuff) that Matthias Kretz has wrote is just plain cool. Sadly, I'm sure I've just barely touched the surface.

from the purgatory of kicker into the hell of kmail

i've been doing waaaay too much screwing around in kicker lately. there's a few more things that need doing, like alphabetizing the Add/Remove menus and possible splitting up the Applets menu now that we ship with a couple dozen applets, but it's generally in not too bad of shape at this point. i even snuck in a change to the default look of kicker. one less icon. one more background. the custom colour option for butons also looks pretty snazzy IMHO and should be friendly to low-resource machines that still want a panel that isn't completely boring.

Fireworks and rain at Nove Hrady

This evening there was a great firework directly in front of the castle in Nove Hrady where we are sitting and hacking. That's a stylish ending for a great week at a stylish location. After having sunshine all the days before it begin raining tonight. Seems like it's time to go home. Many people already have left and I'm going back to Germany with the KDE tour bus tomorrow morning.

This is just sh*t

I'm proud to announce quick and miserable death of my Maxtor 120Gb HDD. "Physical destruction of HDD heads. Unrecoverable." Very well, now I can relax and have my dose of Windows XP (wheww) while the HDD travels to Moscow and back and guess what, nothing kde-related in the meantime. Bad one.

Kopete's Oscar protocol goes KExtendedSocket, Matt tries Unsermake, and more!

I've been converting Kopete's Oscar protocol to KExtendedSocket over the past week or two. Needless to say, it hasn't been without it's headaches, but I have finally conquered it!!! The testing that I've done so far seems to indicate that it still works the way it did before the conversion, although now I can't test it to make sure an issue I had with disconnecting is gone because of the KUtils stuff. I'm not quite sure I know what to think about the KUtils stuff, just basically because I feel like it limits us to using HEAD for kopete now.
