KNetwalk ported to QtQuick

Ashwin Rajeev has just commited his port of KNetwalk to use QtQuick to the master branch of the knetwalk git repository.

Ideally you should not notice any difference, but it would be awesome if you guys could give it a try and report to either Ashwin or to the kde-games-devel mailing list (if you do it here I'll try to pass the info, but I'm going to be off the web for a while so it may get lost when I come back and there's a ton of emails to read :D)

KDE SC 4.12 Release Schedule

After discussions at kde-core-devel, Akademy and release-team you can find the release schedule for KDE SC 4.12 at

The main change agreed by Release Team is that we have more simplified freezes (basically just one) and our betas/RC happen a bit more often (every week) so we have testers trying more up to date code. This also lead to a somewhat shorter cycle with a release mid December 2013.

Fixed: My Z10 automagically shutsdown at a random battery number (mine was around 33%)

Last week I hard a weird issue in which my Z10 was shutting down when the battery was around 33%, I thought the battery had gone wrong, but it seems the problem lies somewhere in the OS that gets confused, in my case i think it was because i pulled/put different batteries in a very short time span.

After some digging I found that helped me make the OS "reset" according to battery handling.

Basically it boilds down to "make sure you really really run out of battery and it'll fix itself"

Adding here in case someone has the same issue.
