I figured it might take some time for a new version to get to Debian,
so I repaired the encoding damage and translated all the remaining
strings for Tellico 1.0.3.

I don't suppose it's worth a new revision but you could just swap the
files in the archive that is offered on your site. I would also
appreciate if you could get the Debian packager to use the correct
version of 'cs.po' in his builds.

Thanks,
Robert

Hopefully, I won't have the same issues with 1.1 I had with 1.0, that is a
complete freeze of the distribution, followed by a C++ ABI transition,
which let me waiting for months...

So far, I have no intention of uploading a new version of the package
before 1.1 is released. However, if need to do it before, I will get the
latest subversion snapshot from the 1.0 branch, so your cs.po should be
included.

Thanks,

Regis

OK, I checked in Robert's 1.0.x version of cs.po into that tree.

### filter

Dear Robby,

Tellico is a great piece of software. Especially the 'Filter' section besides
the Group section is extremely useful.
I would suggest one small improvement: Still it is not possible to display the
selected item shown in the filter-item-list in the uper right panel of the
program. This however would be useful, because from this panel one can
generate the collection report. In the Groups section on the left hand side
there already is a popup entry 'Filter by Group'. Something like this I would
like to see when I am clicking on a Filter item.  )

Thanks again for the great work,

All the best,
Andrei Schliwa

### Cdrom device not released ?


Hi,

I'm having issues by using tellico 1.0.3 / SVN rev 327 / KDE 3.5.0.

I'm unable to eject the CD in certain circumstances. I did'nt find the exact
scenario yet but most of the time I can't eject the CD after having done the
following one:
1. import Audio CD Data
2. edit an entry (not necessary the same)
3. save the modified entry.
I repeated these steps once and I couldn't eject the CD from the device.

I checked by using fuser which process was holding the device and I seen it
was tellico. No other processes was listed.

I have to save everything and quit tellico in order to get the cd out of the
device.

I don't know whether it is actually a bug or a my mistake :]

Let me know if you need more info.

Fred.

### Bad refresh when adding a CD in an existing group


Hi,

I probably found another issue in tellico, version 1.0.3 / SVN rev. 327 / KDE
3.5.0.

When you import a new audio cd data of an existing artist (thus append an
audio cd data of an existing artist to the collection), after having modified
and saved the entry of the added album, the group list is not well refreshed;
everything disappear from the group (grouped by artist) except the edited
entry. Data still exists if you look in the main window.

Let me know if you need more info.

### Feature requests and a question

Hi,

I've been playing with Tellico for academic bibliographies - the z39.50 search
facility is *really* useful (and a major advantage over, e.g., JabRef). There
are a couple of minor features, though, that would hugely improve usability
for me.

One is the option to change the font for display and management of entries
(e.g. to cover a wider range of the unicode standard). The other is would be
to strip out latex markup from the representation of bibtex imports in the
main window (so, e.g., an article imported as 'Tragedy and Politics in
Aristophanes' \emph{Acharnians}'  appears without the markup (or with
"Acharnians" translated into italics). At the moment the braces are stripped
out, but not the rest of the markup.

Although very much a C++ novice, I played around with these options in an
earlier generation of Tellico code. I could always revive the code and send
it on if there was any interest.

The other general question was whether there's been any talk with the KOffice
team about using Tellico for managing bibliographies in KWord or KPresenter.
I saw the earlier threads about OpenOffice integration, and KWord would seem
to be a great deal easier to make progress with

Thanks for the app!

Ian

That probably should be the behavior. Selecting a filter item should filter
the list view. So I'll change that for 1.1. Thanks for pointing it out.

Someone else emailed me about this, but I've been unable to reproduce it. If
I import the CD data, and do all sorts of things, I can always eject the
disc. I'm not sure what's going on there. What the two of you seem to have
in common is KDE 3.5 and I've haven't been using 3.5 yet. I guess that's a
possibility, but it would surprise me.

In terms of code, everything Tellico uses is from a KDe library called
libkcddb, and as far as I can see, there's nothing in there that should be
locking the drive. Very puzzling...

Ok. Extra info: I'm using Debian unstable. I will contact the Debian-KDE
mailing list to check if someone encountered the issue.
Probably the maintainer of one of the dependent packages applied a patch that
made libkcddb unusuable... (Just hypothesis).

Which distro the other person who contacted you is using ? Did this person
compile tellico him(her)self ? Against which libraries ?

This issue is a bit annoying because every two CDs you have to restart tellico
in ordre to continue working.. and I have to register more than 200 CDs :s
