Well, they wouldn't be so "detailed", they are
hey-look-at-this-one-or-more-apps too but with a tiny howto, or the
would be talking about a specific feature of some "big" application

Atop of my head now (those I can start writing)

1) Taking and Exchanging Notes With KDE (KNotes, BasKet, ?)
2) Finding Help with KIO Slaves (man:, info:, help:, ?)
3) Simple file encryption with KGPG

are they appropriate? any more suggestions?

First draft of 3.5.4 release?

Ahoy,

I'm off today until Thursday, so can somebody else write a draft of the 3.5.4 
press release over the next few days?

PLEASE read this carefully first:
http://www.spreadkde.org/handbook/release_promotion

Look at previous press releases for a template. The first paragraph should 
very neatly sum up what is NEW. Then there should be a list of the most 
interesting new things, followed by a paragraph explaining a little more and 
perhaps a quote.

Here are the interesting snippets we've put together so far:
- Improved removable device support (can now mount all HAL devices and edit 
how it will be done, using Kulow's merged media:/ kioslave branch)
- Speed optimisations in konsole and kate
- Multiple holidays can now start on the same date
- Lots of fixes in Konqueror's HTML engine, KHTML
- KFind can search for files that are larger than 2GB
- KNetworkconf now supports Fedora Core 5

It would still be really good if somebody could dig out some translation 
statistics, but if not then the above should be a good starting point. They 
may need rewording to make them clearer, more accurate and more 
interesting :)

Anway, I'm off now so tata.

Regards,
(Continue reading)

I hope to be available for committing patches / files / whatever, but don't 
count on it. I'll be on the wrong continent for decent inet access.

The problem with translations is that AFAIK there's no way to know 3.5.3 
numbers so we can not know the change.

So, Luke, you're working on a fancy what-is-kde thing with descriptions of 
lots of funky KDE applications, or what? Is it visible anywhere?

I'm asking this out of interest to prevent duplicate work and duplicate 
writing.

Yes. Yes:

1) something (or many somethings ;-) about konqueror profiles
2) network transparency (fish: vnc:/, rdp:/, smb:/)
3) internet shortcuts
4) interesting dcop scripts (maybe build a collection of contributed scripts 
somewhere too)
5) skillfully using konqueror's identifier string

etc.

* Selecting a URL with the mouse so it is in the selection clipboard and 
middle clicking anywhere on a Konqueror window to go to that URL, or middle 
clicking on the "Location" label to paste it there and edit in one go.

* Selecting a part of a mail and hit reply to quote only the selected part of 
the mail

* Middle clicking on back/forward/up to open the respective page in a new 
window or ctrl-middle click for a new tab.

Re: [kde-promo] What ability do I have to use 'Javascript' for part of a KDE.org site?

Okay, I have being being with working with Nuno on concepts and issues, sometime soon he will be making the mockup, or the Oxygen style to make it look pretty. Here is the address for it. For a note, this is the popup thing that uses the javascript:

http://bsay.co.uk/kde/test2.html

The close button doesn't currently display right in iexplorer, because of the use of "float:right" and therefore this is just a preview of its capabilities. It would be useful if you could comment on it. For instance should it have a set or proportional width?

I hope to tidy it up within the next few days.
