Plasma Web Browser and WebKit

Recently I’ve been working on the web browser plasmoid and since yesterday it’s possible to use it like a complete stand alone browser (with advanced rendering capabilities thanks to QtWebKit), moreover Plasma::WebView has been recently ported to KGraphicsWebView so it has KDE integration too.

The summary of recent changes is:

  • Plasma::WebView does the same (and better) with less lines of code.
  • Plasma::WebView uses now a KDE integrated WebKit.
  • Web Browser now supports windows (with overlays).
  • The progress bar has been replaced with a ProgressComboBox (like rekonq).

By the end of the tokamak plasma will provided to users a complete web experience.

Moving things to the right place

Yesterday I’ve moved desktop theme configuration from Desktop Settings to System Settings style module. Now Desktop Settings dialog looks less cluttered.

New system settings/style desktop theme configuration tab

Now I’m still working on Desktop Settings dialog and I will continue to improve it.

Next step is to add categories to wallpaper settings.

Icon Time: High Definition Oxygen and Nuvola

High Definition Oxygen

Without any doubt Tokamak II was a great meeting, as it allowed me to work on several things. Two of these things are High Definition Oxygen icons and Nuvola icons.

High Definition Oxygen is a folder that contains 256×256 icons for mimetypes and places and the really good news is that now Oxygen iconset uses less space on disk than before: we don’t install SVGs anymore (so we can save about 60 mb) and we can use a piece of that free space for the new high definition icons that are incredibly small (they requires only a couple of mb).

Something that I really liked about Oxygen is that it is already ready to render at big sizes (Oxygen artists have done a great work).

I have also great news for Nuvola icon set fans: Nuvola is back and it will be part of KDE 4.3 kdeartwork module 🙂
During tokamak I spent several hours renaming and fixing Nuvola icon names and now it can be used also on KDE 4 🙂
