Akademy-es 2013 schedule ready!

As you probably know we are having Akademy-es 2013 just a few days earlier than Akademy in Bilbao, from 11th to 12th of July.

We have just made the schedule available. If you understand Spanish you may want to come to Bilbao a few days earlier to enjoy our talks :-)

Okular welcomes configurable review tools

I have just merged to master a branch by Fabio D'Urso that lets you configure the review tools that appear in the review bar.

This way you can decide that by default you want your highlighter to be green instead of yellow. Or even have two highlighters in the review bar.

Please test and enjoy it :-)

4.11 Soft Feature Freeze in 7 days!

Remember the 4.11 Soft Feature Freeze is in 7 days so try to get your features ready for merging as soon as possible. If you add your features to the Feature Plan you get two weeks more until Hard Feature Freeze. Even if you don't need those two weeks you should add them anyway since it really helps other teams like promo, Q/A, etc. to have the features listed in one place.

gs 9.07 can't render ps files on comma-locales [fixed]

Okular and other libspectre based PostScript viewers can't render some ps files when using a locale that uses , instead of . for decimals.

This happens because of a bug in ghostscript 9.07 that has now been fixed.

I'm not a huge fan of distro-patches myself, but in this case it may make sense to have one, so feel free to ping your distribution if you are a PostScript user.
