Major improvements in KGet and continued work on Shaman2

Filed under: KDE

Again it’s been a long time since my last blog post. The main reason for this was me being busy with a lot of stuff…

First of all, let’s talk about KGet…
There has been a whole bunch of work on it in the last months, including the merge of Matthias’ great work during SoC, a kget-krunner (thanks to
Tomas Van Verrewegen), a lot of feature development and even more bugfixing…

Get it, test it and, most importantly: report bugs!

The other project I’m currently busy with is Shaman2. Dario wrote a long blog post about it already, so I won’t say too much. Just one thing: It’s awesome…
Expect it to be rockin out quite soon… πŸ™‚

I hope I’ll have some more time to keep you updated in the future…

So far,

Lovely, any work on KGet is really appreciated. Frankly I don’t like to use it, just let it work its magic in the background. Unfortunately it screws up far too often, doing what it’s supposed to do (download things). Eg go to a site, download 5 files, only to find it they all stalled. Delete them, CRASH kget. And end up with this in your systray:

Aaah well I doubt you never run into this as it happens far too often…

Hey Jos…

Well I know this “bug”… the problem of it is the crash of KGet… πŸ˜‰ There is no real way for us to remove the notifications after it crashed.

I have no problems with Stalled transfers in recent versions though…


PS: In KDE 4.4 KGet should be a lot more stable, so I doubt it crashes too often then. If it does for you, please report it! πŸ™‚

Jos, I’m dario, another kget developer.. I can assure you that our team has put lots of efforts in rewriting and fixing all the unstable sides of kget. Now we are at the point where no one has been reporting a single crash (of the development version) in the last months..
Obviously we doubt that no bug is there so we would be very glad if you could try this one again πŸ™‚ Will you? Thanks in advance!

Yup, everything’s in KDE-Svn (except one patch will has to be reviewed first, but that will be pushed quite soon as well…)…
