While I'm pretty busy working on libplasma2, Plasma Active and related items, I do put aside time to improve other things that exist .. mostly because I'd go nuts if things I use on a daily basis didn't improve over time. ;) For instance, yesterday, a person wandered into the Plasma irc channel and noted that the top area of window thumbnails that show when one hovers on the taskbar didn't respond to clicks .. which I fixed, along with a few other cleanups in and around the area.
Today, I reached my "can't take it, must be fixed" threshhold with some items in KRunner: pressing tab or the down arrow would send focus to the list of results .. but the first item will still be selected. Not overly useful as it means having to press tab or down arrow twice to get any useful effect. Also, when results would come in and the window would automatically open up, if the mouse happened to be positioned over the results entry it would highlight the item beneath it. This was practically never the intended result and just looked a bit sloppy. Well, all that is fixed now. Huzzah.
In other news, I will be attending COSCUP next month a couple weeks after the Desktop Summit in Berlin. COSCUP is the Free Software event in Taiwan and I'm quite excited about going there to speak. I'll be meeting up with the local KDE community in a BoF session at the end of the first day and have a couple extra days after the event for meetings and follow-ups before I start the trek back home. I'm looking forward to meeting as many people and companies as possible while I'm there to discuss KDE, Qt, Free software and devices. Thanks to Armijn Hemel for helping hook this up and KDE e.V. for travel support.
