Here is an incomplete list.

Waldo Bastian by Suse

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.

what goes through my mind

Well, i am working on gadu for few weeks now.
But there was not even single bug reported during this time (on bugs.kde.org).
Maybe i should consider entering few bugs my self :->

Introducing myself

Wow, what a great idea! I can only say thanks for such a site - I definitely hope it will start to be a good resource for any user seeking closer contact to the members of the KDE team.

So, for a first post, I'd like to introduce myself. My main focus is Kopete. For well over a year now I've been working on the Jabber plugin, occasionally I also dive into libkopete, the core code behind the UI that ties the protocol plugins together. I must say that it's a very rewarding task, Kopete and KDE in general are the first projects that have fascinated me over a longer period of time and that still feel just as cool as on the very first day.

KStringHandler::tagURLs

Trying to fix http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60522 isn't a problem in kSirc. It's a generic problem in KStringHandler::tagURLs.

URL entries that are of the form http://url/~ or end in any none-word or none-number entry gets poorly highlighted.

kopete-gadu

Well , i am back after i spend one week working on some projects in my company.
I hope someday maybe somebody will pay me just for doing what i like to do :-)
We can dream, always...
Anyway, first change: moving contact import to gaducommands.cpp again.

First Entry, N7y Conference Program

So this is my first blog entry. I will try to add something every now and then if it makes sense. Let's see how useful it becomes. I think it has great potentials. Number two on my wishlist would be a wiki on developers.kde.org. Anyone? :)



I finally got the program out and everyone seems to be happy about it. To all that are wondering: "reserved" really means "reserved" on the slots that are marked as such They will be filled until the conference starts.

KSpell

Geiseri definitely made my day with this site, so I wanted to thank him by fixing kspell. I looked over the logs to see which commits broke it. It was broken twice in revision 1.101 (coolo commit) and then in 1.104 in a commit of Don's patch by Laurent. I fixed it but the code I saw there did not make me happy at all. If Laurent won't want to maintain it, I'll start doing it since it simply begs for a maintainer.

Progress

So, a quick primer for people who aren't familiar with me.

I wrote and maintain the dotNET widget style. A lot of people have given me a bunch of different compliments on it, so I've gotten kind of a big head. dotNET is about to be renamed, although I'm not sure as to what it's going to be renamed to - my own preference at this point is heavily leaning towards calling it 'Bytecode' but we'll see if anybody comes up with something more clever or appropriate.
