Had a good irc meeting today with the plasma crew. We spent the bulk of the meeting going through all the code in playground and deciding where it all goes. Moving that code all around will make the next beta a lot more interesting for users.
I think the new krunner, welcome applet and completing the outstanding 4.0 features in the coming weeks in time for the RCs will be a reason to party; and that will be the end of the start for this little project.
As a side note, we need a better gobby, which we used during the meeting today. Gobby is really cool and useful, but lack of features like undo (at least in the version I have access to) and not having more advanced text editor features make it fall far below what is possible. I promise to fall in love with whomever comes up with a proper set of collaborative editing features for katepart and koffice apps. Even if gobby got a proper text editor I'd be happy; I really don't care which toolkit it is written in, though obviously being able to use the apps I already do would be a plus. Now, I know there were SoC projects for these things this year, but I'm not sure what the outcome was for them. I do know that I love collaborative editing, something I had to be convinced of by actually trying it; it added way more to the process than I expected when I first tried it in a group. In fact, it's the only thing I really like about about Writely and the only reason I put up with Gobby's insane lack of usefulness as a text editor. =)
