Second KOffice Developer Sprint 2009 Kickoff

,----[ Quote ]
| In Oslo, Norway, the second KOffice 
| developer sprint this year has started. The 
| KOffice developers must be getting used to 
| seeing each other regularly - besides the 
| two sprints there were many other meetings 
| and events with a handful of KOffice 
| developers present. However, their 'own' 
| sprints still are special - dedicated to 
| some team building, designing and hard work 
| in a cooperative and positive atmosphere.



Battery Improvements in KDE Plasma 4.4

,----[ Quote ]
| The battery applet in KDE Plasma 4.4 has
| gotten some nice improvements. First of
| all, I wasnât really happy with the layout
| of its popup dialog. It looked messy and
| didnât scale well with bigger fonts. During
| Tokamak3 in September, I started improving
| this. To make it look calmer, I reduced the
| amount of edges widgets are aligned to. The
| previous version used nested layouts, which
| lead to widgets not properly aligned with
| each other. This creates a rather messy
| look. For 4.4, Iâve reworked the layout and
| reduced everything to only one layout and
| attached the battery in the popup off-
| layout in the top-right corner. I thought
| about using an AnchorLayout for this, but a
| simple setGeometry() to position the
| battery top-right would work as well, so I
| went for KISS. I also replaced the text on
| the "Configure Power Management" button
| with a tooltip, reducing visual clutter but
| keeping this handy in-context shortcut to
| easily get at the more advanced power
| managment settings.
