Komment is a ruby app for KDE (so, it’s using Korundum). It allows the user to comment books or magazine-articles with which they have to work.
For example if you are writing a elaboration over a specific subject you gonna read lots and lots of books but you can’t remember exactly everything you read in one of them or your thoughts while reading them. So, with Komment you can simply write your thoughts down. Ok, ok, for that a normal Office-Application would do it also, but the great advantage of Komment over those is, that it is designed with the focus on this purpose, to make that easier: You don’t have to bother over the style and if you are in the right position of the list.
You simply write a comment, linking it to a chapter, paragraph or what else of the book and tagging it. You’ve done that you can browse through all what you have ever written to that section of the book or through all of your comments tagged with the same subject.
After quite a long time a new build of Komment is released.
I changed quite some parts of it's internal life and fixed nasty bugs. The major changes:
-> The html-code for displaying the tag-list and the entry in the main-window is now extracted into .html-files which can be customized by the user. they will be installed in the root-KDE-path (e.g. opt/kde3/share/apps/komment/) but will be copied to your home-kde-path (~/.kde/share/apps/komment). In the later position they can be changed. There are some tags, the capital written words in double brackets (e.g. [[DESCRIPTION]]). That should be kept, for this will be changed by Komment and filled with the appropriate values for the entry.
-> The tag-hierarchy is not publication-wide any more but app-wide. So the window for changing the tag-hierarchy is now available in the startup-gui also. This way each and every publication has the same tags.
The tag hierarchy gonna be changed again after this build, for my brother still want it some cooler *roll eyes*
* fixed a bug in the raw-import of sections
* fixed a bug at editing tags
* fixed a bug at saving tag-structure from inside the startup-gui
* fixed an issue in saving tag-hierarchy
* fixed a bug with expanding XML-own chars
* added a missing 'end' that caused ruby to brake at the startup
* fixed for the bug that you cannot create new publications
- extracted HTML-Code from inside ruby-code to be able to customize it in a easy way
- made search case-insensitive
- made the raw-property of publications invisible outside publication-class
- centralized the tag-hierarchy. It's now independent from the publications
-- changed the undo/redo-system so it doesn't bother (atm) about changes on
-- gave the two buttons (save and revert) in the edit->tag page of the startup-gui some function. but yet: USE WITH CARE
- changed about-data
- fixed the KLocale-Error
- started import/export in a plugin-like way (paused till Beta4 released)
- fulltext-search now looks in tags also
- changed some sizes of GUI-Elements, put the tags out of the 'header' at viewing an entry into an seperate (closeable) window
- fixed a issue with the tabs (two where closed not one)
- when closing the last window the app now exit and doesn't show the startup-gui again
- fixed a bug at showing a tag in a library
- cleaned code of tag-manager
- fixed error in wrong ordering of the section-hierarchy
- fixed a bug at move down a section in the edit-hierarchy-gui
- cleaned HTML-Code for displaying an entry
- fixed a bug at creating new entries
- removed some old-code. removed the own-written connect2Block so it uses qtruby-own connect.
- fixed a bug at deleting an entry
- redesigned GUI for editing tag-hierarchy
- now you can add a new tag directly as a subtag of another when naming the tag super:sub
- fixed a bug at opening the edit-library-gui
- fixed a bug with showing an entry that belong to no section
- fixed a bug with the MergedUndoManager (editing something when opened a library)
- You can import now by dragging a kommen own file into the list of the startup-gui and export by dragging from the list into konqueror
- You can edit a publication if you double click it in the startup-gui
- import, export and recover are in a new place now, but not yet implemented
- You can edit an Entry inside the main window by double-click it in the main list
- You get an auto-completion in the edit entry GUI when you add a tag
- if you open a library you get an new column that indicates to which publication an entry belongs
- fixed a lot of bugs that made the Beta3 unstable (but haven't been fixed before since no one ever told me about them)
- added my brother Markus to the "Thanks"-section of the "About Komment" GUI as he does lot of bug-testing and gives much ideas
