Kate - LSP Client Status

Filed under
KDE

Unfortunately, for the 19.12.0 release, we still had the issue that the mapping of syntax highlighting modes to LSP language names was more or less hard-coded inside the C++ sources. This made it awkward to add other languages for which there is no 1:1 match of these two things (beside casing).

This is now rectified in master and backported to the 19.12 branch (should be in the next patch releases).

The mapping is now specified as a regular expression inside the JSON config that then is applied case-insensitive to the highlighting mode.

The shipped default config was adjusted to this, the current state in master & 19.12 is something like this...

Today I’d like to talk about the major features and improvements I expect for 2020. Note that this is not an official planning document, it’s just what I anticipate happening and plan to push for and help implement. Without further ado…

KDE's Akademy 2019: Reaching personal and community goals

Filed under

Akademy 2019 was in several aspects significant, both for me and the KDE community. This was my second time attending Akademy, and compared to my first Akademy in 2018, I was now participating as a member of the KDE e.V., a candidate for the Board of Directors and a goal keeper for the Streamlined Onboarding goal, presenting a talk on our progress and being part of a panel discussion with the other goal keepers.

Trinity Desktop Environment R14.0.7 Released!

Filed under
KDE

The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new TDE R14.0.7 release. TDE is a complete software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software.

R14.0.7 is the seventh maintenance release of the R14.0 series, and is built on and improves the previous R14.0.6 version. Maintenance releases are intended to promptly bring bug fixes to users, while preserving overall stability through the avoidance of both major new features and major codebase re-factoring.

Adriaan de Groot on KDE, FreeBSD and His Project Calamares

BSD
  • FreeBSD end-of-year

    Since I wear many hats, there’s multiple end-of-year retrospectives to have.

    Huh, it seems like I’ve been a FreeBSD (ports) committer for a little over two years now. Time flies when you’re having fun and/or doing soul-crushing administrative busywork.

    It depends on how you see packaging and tool support – what does it mean and what is your relationship with upstream.

    The kde@ team maintains a bunch of C++ and toolkit infrastructure – CMake and Qt to name two – and that means that we have a lot of consumers that are not directly maintained by us. Changes in the infrastructure often affect other packages in some way – CMake no longer finds a specific package, or Boost gets away from us again, or changes in default C++ warning flags cause unmaintained code from 2002 to fail to build. All that is par-for-the-course when participating in a giant group project to maintain over 30000 packages.

  • Calamares end-of-year

    As 2019 draws to a close, I’d like to use a blog entry to look back at what happened in Calamares in this year. I’m not doing this on the Calamares website itself, since this is more of a personal-retrospective than anything else.

    In this year, there were 16 Calamares releases. There was at least one release every month except march (that one took a long time, and prompted a switch to “short cycle” later) and september (bracketed by august 30 and october 1 releases). I have tried to switch to “short cycle” releases (starting with Calamares 3.2.6) so that there’s faster turn-around on bugfixes and small features can be delivered more easily.

    The short-cycles are about three weeks, and that’s held up reasonably well. What I do notice is that the number of small things remains constant and a couple of big-ticket items are still languishing. That’s still something I don’t know how to deal with.
