KDE Applications 17.08 branches created

Hi all,

the release of KDE Applications 17.08 is closer[1]. The branch
'Applications/17.08' was created in all repositories part of the bundle.

Please commit everything that should land on 17.08 (bug fixes for sure) on
Applications/17.08 (my suggestion is then to forward-merge into master, better
than cherry-pick).

The translations from trunk were copied to the stable branches as well, as usual.

Unless of course some human error, let's see tomorrow what the scripts say.


Ongoing documentation fixes around "KDE" terminology

Hi all,

the documentation (docbook) of various projects still include references to "K
Desktop Environment", "<software> for KDE" and so on. As fixing those strings
is long overdue, instead of going with a review for each of those changes, if
there are no objections, the documentation team will directly push a series of
fixes for those terminology issues in the following days.


Gwenview ui file in 15.08

Hi Ivan,
the change you committed few months ago to Gwenview:
<a href=";a=commit&amp;h=78e4e57af3a5476dd949797c559a3d25d8ce50a1" title=";a=commit&amp;h=78e4e57af3a5476dd949797c559a3d25d8ce50a1">;a=commit&amp;h=78e4e57af3a5476dd949...</a>

broke the loading of the menu, as the ui file still has the old name and there
is no explicit setting of the .ui file name.

There is a bug for this and two review requests:
<a href="" title=""></a>

The older RR reverts your change:
<a href="" title=""></a>

The newer one renames the .ui file on installation and fixes the directory.

Could you please comment on t

Notes from the Phabricator BoF

Hi all,
thanks to Victor Blazquez, here are the notes from the Phabricator BoF.

Review Request 120324: Simplify CMake code for DTD generation (WIN32/non-WIN32)

Review request for Build System, KDE Frameworks and kdewin.

Repository: kdoctools

Unify most of the CMake code which generates the DTD instead of duplicating the functionalities for WIN32 and non-WIN32 execution.

Review Request 119446: Add a simple test for meinproc

Review request for Documentation, KDE Frameworks and kdelibs.

Repository: kdelibs

The summary says it all.

Review Request 116604: Allow directories with . as output for meinproc

Review request for Documentation, KDE Frameworks, kdelibs, and Aleix Pol Gonzalez.

Bugs: 246755
<a href="" title=""></a>

Repository: kdoctools

The outputFile parameter is not used by the stylesheets, so don't pass it.

Review Request 113218: Enable translation functions for js script loaded through Kross

Review request for kdelibs.

Repository: kdelibs

Bit of background: Account Wizard in kmail uses few js/es scripts (QScriptEngine) which are loaded using Kross. They expose one string each (but there could potentially more strings) which are visibile in the user interface but not translated.

Review Request: Fix docs generation with docbook-xslt >= 1.76

Review request for kdelibs, Burkhard Lück, Rex Dieter, and Albert Astals Cid.

Previously, local.l10n.xml was defined to use a build-time generated file containing the a list of languages for which we provides customizations (see kdoctools/customization/xsl).

Review Request: Add missing dependency to xmllint

Review request for kdelibs and Sune Vuorela.

This patch adds the missing checks for xmllint. xmllint is a de facto dependency for kdelibs, a fresh rebuild fails without it (thanks to Sune Vuorela for catching it).
