This is pretty impressive for a 0.1 release. A couple of points:

- The whole bar flashes from time to time.

- When zooming to 128 sized icons, they become blocky, even though I've got 128 sized icons in my icon theme.

Just some thoughts, but look forward to seeing this once it's got a few point releases under its belt.

I think that he is talking about the pixelation when the icon is zoomed. It is a great job, I love it, but the zoom effect should be more clear (less pixelated).

This happens to every icon or only to those belonging to the taskbar?

For me it happens only for the taskbar icons.

Ok, the problem is that the icons of the running applications are "stolen" from the window, that is, the small icon on the top left corner. Because it is a pixmap when it is rezized, sometimes it gets "blocky" or badly pixelated.
On the other hand, the icons from the launcher menu are loaded from the Kde icon set, so if you request a 128 icon, if it exists, they will not look ugly.

You can't zoom pixmap icons without them getting either "blocky" or blurred. The only formats that can be scaled without those effects are vector formats, like svg.

Hi!

kooldock is looking very nice for this early stage of development. The "blocky" look would be because of some pixmap icons that get scaled to bigger sizes. svg icons are vectors and can be scaled without becoming blocky. So it depends on the application's icon you resize.

Keep up the good work! It looks promising!

 Why?

Why did you have to start your own project?
Now there is a dock with autohide but without the new features of Smoothdock 3.2, because your project is a fork of 2.1...
Wouldn't it be better to work together in one project? More synergies?

 Configuration Boxes

Hi, Kooldock is working fairly well for me.
However, the Configuration Boxes are not laid out correctly, and as a result I can't see half the writing thats on them.
Just a suggestion, try using layout management in your QT Designer file so that the boxes and the textLineEdits can resize and reformat themselves depending on the fonts or languages people use.
Other than that, nice app!

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.
