News from KDE PIM in July/August 2019

Following Volker's last blog on this topic, here are some highlights of the recent work that has been done around Kontact / PIM during this summer. First of all, stats: there were around 1200 commits in the past two months, leading to the new 19.08 release.

It seems our team was mostly focused on cleaning, fixing and introducing little UI features during summer:

Memory usage improvements for 4.11

The other day I went to buy a DDR stick but the shop was closed so the only solution was to sit down and fix some memory hungry applications ;).

These will be in 4.11:

* Fixed a bug where maildir resource would use 1 or 2GB when importing large folders.

* Fixed a bug where mixedmaildir resource would also use 1 or 2GB.
(Thanks to Martin Steigerwald for providing a a 77k e-mail folder).

* akonadiserver wasn't clearing uneeded query caches. Saved 65MB here.

Three days in Berlin (or improving the pim user experience)

Last weekend I've met with some of our old timer KDEPIM developers and some of the newer ones who are interested in KDEPIM or related technologies in the KDAB offices in Berlin.
Being a KDAB employee for a few years already (wow, time is passing quickly), the place was familiar, the people looked familiar. The foosball table was slightly familiar, although some players changed their dresses in order to spread confusion inside the visitor's heads. That is the only reason we've lost against locals with 5-0, 5-0.

kdepim-4.4 with kolab (problem and solution)

My wife's assistant uses KMail (obviously) and KOrganizer (for a Kolab shared calendar).
To spare her from akonadi trouble, I installed OpenSuse-11.4 for her, which comes with KDEPIM 4.4.

GSOC: Enhance our workspace experience

Since so many students have already shown interest in working for KDE during this years Google Summer of Code, with some already having started to send in first drafts of their proposals, I thought I'd a bit of advertising for a specific idea. Well "my" idea :)

It has been mostly ignored so far, i.e. not getting a lot of obvious attention, probably because it is "hidden" in the KDE PIM section and not listed in one of the section that guarantee eternal fame.
