EventWatcher is a KDE application which notifies you
about various events.
"Events" are pieces of information about, for example,
news ticker or blog updates, new emails, user logons,
system warnings, hardware events etc.
They get collected by EventWatcher plugins and sent
to the main application which lives in the KDE system
tray for most of the time and displays this information.

Available plugins:
- DCOP: Receives "events" via KDE's desktop communication protocol, for example from other KDE applications or scripts.
- Log File Monitor: Reports changes in log files.
- RSS Feed Monitor: Watches RSS feeds provided by many news sites and blogs.


- Event expiring:
- Remove events based on the time they were received
- Configuable behaviour: Expire agetime, Expire only unread events, Auto-expire
- KNotify support (Patch by Paul Eggleton)
- Hide plusminus button when list is empty.

- Added keep button to events
- DCOP plugin registers without a PID
- Log plugin includes log filename in title to help grouping

- The delete button for each event is back - optional, enabled by default.
- Url drag support for event action buttons.
- Option for a more compact event view: "action" buttons can also be placed
alongside the event text in form of a launch icon.
- Slightly improved event view scrolling performance for large event items.
- added EventWatcher 0.4.1 Debian SID package by Sergio Rodriguez.

- Big UI improvement:
� A new event view which makes it much easier to
manage events.
� Similar events (same icon and title) are now grouped together by
default. The old, ungrouped, mode is still supported.
- API addidtion for a short text to be displayed in the popup. Also
affects the DCOP event interface.
- Some work on the popup:
� Now displays the number of new events (since the last popup announcement)
instead of just the number of all "old new" events. ;)
� Remove the close button and make the popup close on clicks on
empty areas.
� Add an optional label which displays a short description of new events.
� Can be disabled in the settings dialog.
- Small change of the event history file format (which will make old
loaded events forget the title...).
- Ported the RSS plugin to use KDE 3.2's dcop rssservice as backend instead
of librss directly.
- Many minor changes...

- Patch by Teemu Rytilahti <teemu.rytilahti@kde-fi.org>:
� Use local8Bit() in the event view. Might solve umlaut problems for
some users...
� Don't quit the entire app by clicking the main window's close
button; minimize to system tray instead.
� Don't create popups if the main window is visible.
- Overlay the number of unread events over the system tray icon.
- plugin API
� Added a (very) basic API documentation.
� Small plugin API addition.
- RSS plugin:
� Changed the way how feed information is stored in the configuration
file. Old Settings will get lost.
� Added some default news feeds.
- Added a plugin for monitoring log files.
- Compile fix.
- (Hopefully) fixed some compiling problems (link to the right qt
library, .ui file fix).
- System tray icon can now indicate if there are new events or not.
- Events are now displayed in the main window (the pop-up now only
shows up to announce that there are new events).
- Initial event history and session management support.

This app is fantastic, great work! a nice addon could be for example changing the dock icon if something weird happens, for example something new in the /var/log/errors.

 Port to DCOPRSS

As I can see you use librss. Have you though about using the RSS DCOP service of KDE 3.2 instead?

Yes, I'm going to do so for the next version. When I initially wrote the rss plugin, I only knew about librss, but I'm very interested in the DCOP service.
I already had a look at your RSS sidebar and the Kontact plugin yesterday. My knowledge about DCOP is rather limited and a few things were confusing for me, so I decided to drop it for 0.3. But I will give it another try soon. ;)

Ah, great! The only thing the RSS DCOP service lacks is the configuration dialog. ATM everyone has to implement his own dialog. It's still on our (geiseri, frerich, myself) TODO list but ...

You see the scheme here: I praise your work and at the same time try to shift you development focus to tasks we were to lazy to do. ;-)

Great work on this application. I really can forsee a lot of uses for it.

One thing that I would to see added is the ability to have the popup notify window give more information than "1 new event". It would be great if the dcop interface gave the ability to send text to that notification window as well.

This would make it a great interface for doing email notification from Evolution, which can pipe to a command as part of a filter.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
