My first commit to KDE SVN

Published on Monday September 10, 2007 by Andreas Aardal Hanssen in Qt KDE | Comments

I just submitted a backport of QGraphicsItem::CacheMode to KDE4 SVN. The change is in Plasma::Widget, and gives Plasma the same speed boost that Qt 4.4's QGraphicsItem eventually will have. For those interested, the change is also available in ftp://ftp.trolltech.com/qt/snapshots . Which is all of course completely irrelevant.

The important thing is - it's my first KDE submit! I now qualify as a KDE developer. Right??

[21:05]  aseigo: if I submit, you sync and quickly check that it builds for you ok? I'm using 4.4, and I'm too lazy to recompile everything with 4.3. ;-)
[21:06] _bibr: sure thing
[21:07] aseigo: done!
[21:07] bibr * r710738 workspace/trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/libs/plasma/widgets/ (widget.cpp widget.h):
[21:07] Add CachePaintMode, as a temporary local back-port of
[21:07] QGraphicsItem::CacheMode, which will appear in 4.4. I've chosen names
[21:07] that aren't really good, but they're not misleading, and they don't
[21:07] clash with the API in 4.4.
[21:07] My first KDE submit :-DDD.
[21:07] * _bibr submits his very first change to KDE
[21:08] s/KDE/KDE SVN/
[21:08] * aseigo builds
[21:08] note: I haven't enabled the flag for any existing applets.
[21:08] yep, it builds...
[21:08] yohoo :-)
