I noticed I hadn’t blogged since the Phonon bugday; meh. The bugday was a raging success, with many nice people showing up and helping. Also especially thanks to Mamarok, she was doing an absolutely fantastic job, and is still continuing doing a fantastic job in the bugzilla now sorting and triaging. Many thanks to her and the rest of the people who showed up. I hope to spend some quality time in the bugzilla during this christmas.
The reason I haven’t blogged is that I’ve been pretty busy with the final exams, but they are now behind me. But while reading for exams I did, as is usual here in Trondheim, have several projects to distract me. I started a port of DroidBattles to Qt4 (a game where you program robots in assembly, used to play this quite a bit), continued on my port of Kredentials (a Kerberos ticket handler for KDE), made a patch for Qt 4.6.0 to include a newer Phonon version, and finally continued the work on moving Phonon to Git (I got as far as to get svn2git to crash with my ruleset, the history of some Phonon elements isn’t entirely trivial to keep track of…).
I also fixed the two most annoying bugs for me in Dragon Player, the one where the toolbar isn’t hidden in fullscreen mode, and the one where the mouse isn’t hidden. I also tried to fix the screensaver handling, now only DPMS is left to disable (which shouldn’t be too hard, a couple of lines copied from the `xset` source code should do it). I hope this makes Dragon Player usable for other people again, too.
Lastly, I’m also building KDE 4.3.82 for Chakra now, for all of you impatient Arch Linux users wanting an unstable desktop. They should be finished and uploaded by tomorrow morning, in the kdemod-testing repo. :-)
