Edit the changelog!

Looking at the changelog file it seems that only Pino and me have fixed bugs for the KDE 3.5.6 release, hope that is not true!

So remember, each time you fix a bug, put it on the changelog, that will help us having a good changelog and also will help you, because if you wait before the release it will be a harder work and you may not remember them all!

okular mailing list

Today we inaugurated the okular-devel mailing list. YIPI! :-) Feel free to subscribe, but keep in mind it's a developer mailing list so most topics will be about development. If you have suggestions we are happy to hear them too, but please use to report wishes against the okular product. And again, we have a mailing-list, YIPI! :-)

kdegames survey

During the last aKademy we identified the need to conduct a survey about the current state of applications in the kdegames module, and also to collect suggestions for games in KDE4.

Mauricio did the hard work and thought the questions and created the poll itself. So please, take the poll to demonstrate his work was not in vain and to help kdegames developers decide what to do for KDE 4.

Barcelona 10th KDE Annivesari dinner

So not as big as the official event but at Barcelona some KDE developers, translators and users decided to gather and had a dinner and pub session. Go toè_Aniversari to see how the catalan KDE crew looks like.

Solution for KUbuntu 3.5.5 and USB not automounting

Well, some friends of mine had this problem, after updating to Kubuntu 3.5.5 packages their USB/iPod did not automount like before. At the end we discovered i had a newer libhal (0.5.7-1ubuntu18.1 vs 0.5.7-1ubuntu18) because they did a 3.5.3 -> 3.5.5 update while i did 3.5.3 -> 3.5.4 -> 3.5.5 and the 3.5.4 update adds the newer libhal, so if you are having problems with Kubuntu 3.5.5 and did not do the 3.5.4 update, add
deb dapper main
to your sources and update and you'll see libhal update appear and hopefully fix your problem. Riddell toldme he is going to add libhal update also to the 3.5.5 packages, but meanwhile, try it.
Update 1:Seems that does not work for everybody, sorry for you, it worked for some.
Update 2:Seems that Riddell already added new hal packages to 3.5.5 repository so this is not needed anymore, just update and [dist-]upgrade.

okular features #2

Word processor-like text selection

Okular provides real text selection, that is you can select from half one line to the half of a line below it and get the lines in between completely selected. This fixes the problem kpdf had with the old rectangle based selection.

Extraction of embedded files in PDF documents

We are now able to extract embedded files in PDF documents, you can see here a screenshot showing a document with two embedded files. You can access the embedded files via the menu and also via the yellow bar that appears on the top of the screen when the document you have just opened has an embedded file.
