SvgWidget testing

To test the new SvgWidget I made a hdd monitoring applet. Bar meters are too big and not very pretty but basic functionality is there :-)

Learning Plasma part II: Widgets

I needed some kind of meter widget. It was good time to learn something about Plasma widgets. SVG widget was born that can act as a meter (analog/bar). Well just watch the video and you know what I'm trying to tell.

Learning plasma

I like to learn things by doing things. Playing with rss and news applet taught me something about engines and applets in plasma. During that I think I also managed to fill panel-devel mailing list with several questions... It's far from perfect but it's at least a start.

KMediaFactory for KDE4

KDE4 version of KMediaFactory is in pretty good shape. I have had lots of incompatibility problems with ImageMagick and ffmpeg in KDE3 version. ImageMagick is not needed anymore (Qt4 replaced it) and I'm only using ffmpeg binary, so I hope those problems don't haunt me anymore (famous last words...). Otherwise it's just a port from KDE3 version. KISS was the main principle when I started this project and I like to keep it that way.
