Why not merge with JuK?

This seems to come up fairly frequently with people who talk to me about Kiwi and its goals and the seeming redundancy when compared with JuK. At the risk of possibly offending wheels (which is completely not my intention), I do have a few reasons to continue developing Kiwi, and these reasons are all valid to me.

Kopete Jabber Plugin - Do you use it?

Jabber seems to be growing again lately. Yet, Kopete seems to have no real userbase in Jabberland. I always wonder why I don't get any real feedback. There are hardly any bug reports, hardly any wishlist entries. Compared to the other plugins like ICQ or MSN at least, although that might be an unfair comparison.

Would you use the Kopete Jabber plugin? Do you know about Jabber at all? If you are using the Jabber plugin, are you missing any features?

is it Free enough?

We recently had a bit of drama on the kde-edu-devel mailing list. It seems that Debian decided that KStars was not quite Free enough, because some of the images we use are used with permission, and the catalog files are not unambiguously in the public domain. As a result, they were either going to remove KStars altogether, or move it to non-free.

KSpell cont.

I don't like the fact that I have to be coming up with topics for those entries. I think I'll just start putting dates for them. People who want to know what I'm doing will find them anyway.
I haven't done anything too interesting today. Worked on KSpell a little more. Cleaned it up a little and closed two bugs, from which the more interesting is that you can now check HTML/SGML/XML and Tex/LaTeX documents with KSpell and it will automatically skip the tags/commands and it will spell check only the actual contents. It should make spellchecking in such applications as Quanta and KTextMaker/Kile a lot more friendly.

kstars status

For my first post, I thought I would give a short heads up on recent activity in KStars.

Jasem Mutlaq recently added telescope control to KStars, which is just fantastic. Definitely has been one of our most-requested features.

This is a test post from KBlog

This is a test post from KBlog. If it works it will be ready for CVS. Currently there are issues with the post manager. The selection dialogs need some refinement.

There are also some big UI issues, and some missing code, but I think there is enough here that other developers will want to get a start.

More silly bug fixes

Well notices now highlight the nick in their randomly picked colours.

reved the version to 1.3.8 to allow for the per server prefs. That's it for ksirc today, it's too hot out.

KBlog getting ready...

Well i have hacked the greater part of the day on cleaning up the kblog code. The backend is now completely generic and im now switching the main code over to use that code. Once that is done i can throw that in cvs.
