Activities

  • New activity chooser needed for 4.5
  • CA: to write up activities design from Tokamak4
  • Sources at trunk/playground/base/nepomuk-kde/libactivities
  • Needs splitting into kded module and nepomuk service

Mobile

  • AS: mobile important because changes here affect the rest of the platform
  • MM concentration on mobile over polish for 4.5
  • AS: 4.5 to include Mobile Shell Tech Preview

Polish

  • How can the polish be coordinated? Wiki?
  • JS: general performance and responsiveness improvements needed - valgrind
    • AS: yes, but target specific components
  • AS has been polishing extenders
    • MM would like to be able to detach extenders to separate view windows, and make extendergroups real parents of their group items.
  • Exec dataengine should become a Service
  • AdS: 4.5 will be compared with 3.5 by everyone. Therefore Plasma needs as much polish as possible for 4.5.
  • JS: solid and dolphin notifications could be moved to the normal framework, for more consistency
  • JS: would like to enable DnD of devices to the desktop
    • AS: could somehow use semantic tagging to route all these notifications
  • FH considering getting rid of the listview popup in folderview, and show the icon view in the popup instead, better with vertical panels
  • FH: when you toggle compositing the margins in all toplevel plasma windows are screwed up afterwards. MM to handle
  • FH: kpixmapcache has a crash when when you change the color scheme, plasma theme, wallpaper, toggle compositing, enable/disable a desktop effect
  • MM: big bug of randomly freezing event loops
  • AS: KRunner hits need paging, Amarok runner may return 40000 hits, creating 40000 ResultItems, very slowly.
  • Quicksand KRunner interface is basically unmaintained
    • AdS: Move it back to playground?
    • AS: leaving it unpolished may encourage someone to contribute
  • AS: Widget Explorer needs polishing
  • Remote Widgets
    • MM: Need a way to migrate configuration of remote widgets

Drag and Drop

  • CA: plasmoid DnD sucks
  • FH: there is an outstanding merge request for adding alpha support in drag & drop pixmaps

Javascript

  • New features for JS
    • DataEngines
    • Runners
    • Animations
    • plasmoid improvements
  • AS: could use help but can manage if none is forthcoming

Pastebin/Sharebin

  • AdS: would like to get Sharebin in 4.5 but may not have time. Uses scripted plugins, like how Comic plasmoid works.

Notifications and Systray

  • MM has been focusing on this for 4.5, the broad features are basically done

Dataengine caching between boots

  • MM would like DataEngines to be able to cache old query results, giving content on reboot when network is down
  • AS: could be a job for Plasma::Storage
