KDEPIM report

KDEPIM report

This week I focused my work on Akregator.


  • I fixed some errors on signal/slots
  • I reimplemented TextToSpeech support
  • I replaced QList to QVector where it was possible
  • I added some QStringLiteral
  • I used new Qt5 connect Api
  • I fixed some bugs.
  • I added support for share url (it allows to share url in Facebook/Twitter etc.)

Others work in KDEPIM:

  • I implemented ShareUrl, I use it in kmail/akregator
  • I fixed some bugs in Dav resource (thanks to Bruno Friedmann to provide me an access to an owncloud server). It was mainly GUI bugs.
  • I fixed some crashes in Accountwizard
  • KMail uses KPIM::CompletionConfigureDialog to configure addressline settings (it avoids 3 different dialogbox).
  • I added bookmarks support in Sieveeditor
  • I added spellchecking support in plaintexteditor.
  • I fixed application translations


Next week I will focus on the KAddressbook.

I hope that I will have more bug report about it.

Other Info:

Dan works on akonadi to replace protocol based on text to use a binary protocol directly.

He saw a lot of improvement. He hopes to merge it in master soon.

To conclude:

We are in good way to have a stable version for 15.08.

I was not sure some about it some weeks ago 🙂

    Great! I cannot await to install Plasma 5 with Kf5 KDE PIM on my Produktion Maschine. Keep the good work going ;-).

    Btw: what is the status of Akonadi next? Will KDE PIM use it with the 15.08 release? Will there be PIM integration in the calendar plasmoid (agenda view in the plasmoid)?

    @konrad: Akonadinext no idea. We will not use it for 15.08.
    Calendar plasmoid. no idea too, need to ask to plasma team 🙂

    I switched from akregator to quiterss, because akegrator opened new articles in a scrolled-to-bottom state (for example try to open a http://www.spiegel.de article, scroll down, and then open another one). Perhaps you can fix this on the way? (there already exists a bug report since a few years)
