KDEPIM KF5 status and test plan
As you know we decided to release kdepim kf5 in 15.08. (We have 2 months yet).
I use kdepim kf5 by default now on my main computer. Of course when I started to use it all apps crashed, or there was some part of code which was not ported to kf5 yet.
I tried to fix all crash that I found, I fixed a lot of bugs, and I finished some features (as Gravatar support, rewrite the kmail composer, reimplement text to speech etc.)
Now all applications work fine (no direct crash when I launch them). But of course it’s not perfect. I can’t use all application all the time. So I need some help to find bugs.
There is a lot of application in kdepim:
- etc. (Some others minor applications)
So I decided to focus each week on an application.
I will not work at 100% on a specific application, but I will use it a lot during this period and I will try to fix each bug that I will find.
As I worked a lot on KMail, I will not focus on it next week.
I will focus on Akregator, so if you can test it and you can report me bugs. I will not fix all bugs about akregator but I will try to for all porting bugs. I don’t have time to debug all akregator bugs 😉
How to test it ?
It’s better to use last version from git because I fix a lot of bugs each week. (I don’t know if distro provides snapshots).
I will increase version of kdepim each week so we will be sure that bug is against last version.
KDEPIM uses a lot of resource as Dav, Openxchange, etc. I don’t have access to them. So I can’t debug so it will good if some people will able to test them.
Thanks for your help.
