Dolphin Metadata-Information

The Dolphin Information panel has been ported in RC2 to use nepomuk-widgets which is based on Nepomuk 2 (read, should be faster and less buggy). However as it is a change being merged very late into the release cycle we should test it to death. Below is a checklist with everything on the panel, that should be tested. It's mostly moving code, so all should be fine. However it's important to still make sure this is released tested as it has missed some of the testing cycle.

The Information Panel can be used with or without Nepomuk. In both cases its functionality will nearly be the same. Both need to be properly tested. The main developer, Vishesh, has mostly only tested it with Nepomuk running.

When you find something which is broken or not perfect, open a bug report for the product 'nepomuk' and note down the bug number near the test.

Latest Version

As this is a change introduced in RC2 you need to make sure you have the correct version. In Dolphin click Control->Help->About->About KDE and make sure the version is 4.9.97.

If you compile your own KDE, make sure you have the latest version of kde-baseapps.
