Description:

Yakuake is a drop-down terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology.


--- What's new ---

2.9.9:
Yakuake 2.9.9 is feature, bugfix and general maintenance release. The most significant new features are the introduction of silence/activity monitoring options for terminals and the addition of Get Hot New Stuff support for making it easier to download new Yakuake skins. Various little tweaks to the window behavior have been done, from auto-retracting the Yakuake window when the last session is closed to additional placement fixes in multi-monitoring setups with interesting desktop panel arrangements. Script authors will appreciate the once again expanded D-Bus APIs. Syncing the default shortcuts to changes made in Konsole and a smattering of other little fixes round things out, and finally Yakuake now depends on KDE Platform version 4.7.1 or higher.

Have a look at the changelog for additional details not mentioned here.

Changelog:

Changes in 2.9.9:
* Yakuake now sports a standard KDE "Configure Notifications..." item in its menu. The startup notification popup configuration has moved there, and newly-added notification events covered below are found there.
* It is now possible to monitor sessions (or individual terminals within them) for activity or silence. See the tab context menu or the keyboard shortcuts to toggle monitoring, and the new "Configure Notifications" dialog mentioned above to configure what happens when activity or silence are detected in a monitored session or terminal (by default a desktop notification popup is triggered for each).
Note that repeated activity in a terminal does not result in repeated notifications for that terminal: After the first notification, activity monitoring has to be disabled or reenabled, or the active session switched, or the window closed - only then another activity notification will be shown.
* Support for Get Hot New Stuff for skins has been added. See the new "Get New Skins..." button below the skin list in the Appearance page of the config dialog.
* When the window is set not to show on all virtual desktops and is not residing on the current virtual desktop, but is open (i.e. set to stay open regardless of focus loss), the Open/Retract action normally used to either retract it, or, when the option to also use the action to focus the window is enabled, cause the window manager to switch to the virtual desktop the window resides on. The former case, i.e. when the option to also use the action to focus the window is disabled, has now been changed to move the window to the current virtual desktop and focus it, rather than retract it.
* Yakuake now automatically retracts after the last open tab closes.
* A number of default keyboard shortcuts have been changed to reestablish consistency with Konsole, which introduced changed defaults in KDE Software Compilation v4.6.
* Invoking the window manager maximization feature now results in a Yakuake window with 100% width and height instead of the unresized window getting moved to the top-left corner of the screen. However, restore is not supported as it doesn't easily fit with Yakuake's window size state model.
* Tweaks to the code Yakuake uses to make itself the active window when invoked should improve compatibility with more window managers, particularly xfwm.
* The D-Bus API has been expanded further to cover the new activity and silence monitoring options, as well as with additional methods related to retrieving information about the keyboard input enabled state for sessions and terminals.
* The addSession* and split* D-Bus calls now return the id of the newly-created session or terminal, or -1 if creating a new session or terminal was not possible.
* Made sure that the activeTerminalId D-Bus call always returns something useful after an addSessionTwo*/Quad call, even when the window is closed while the call is made. Previously, activeTerminalId could return -1 in this situation because there technically is no active terminal until the window is opened and a focus event causes one to become active. Now the terminal that will receive focus once the window is opened is immediately declared the active terminal.
* The "Help" button was removed from the configuration dialog since there currently is no handbook included.
* Fixes to the window geometry and placement calculation in multi-screen setups and with panels located on screen edges other than the bottom edge.
* Fixed a bug causing the "Disable Keyboard Input -> For This Session" checkbox in the context menu of a multi-terminal session to become enabled when keyboard input was disabled for any of the individual terminals, rather than only when all terminals have it disabled (i.e. what enabling the checkbox manually actually does).
* Fixed errors in the tab stop order in several pages of the configuration dialog.
* Fixed the message shown on stderr when Yakuake is already running to refer to toggling rather than opening the window, since that is what a repeated execution actually does - if the window is already open, it will be closed at this time.
* Code cleanups, including porting away from recently deprecated KDE Platform APIs for future-compatibility.
* The KDE4FAQ document included in the tarball has been updated.
* Yakuake now depends on KDE Platform 4.7.1 or newer.

 Great update

Really good to see this project active again. I've been using it with no problems on kubuntu 7.04 - it's really past a beta release I think.

One thing I would suggest: would it be possible to set x/y positions relative to the left or right of the screen? Something like:

[MinusButton]
relative_to=left
x=20
.. etc..

(For awkward people like me to want the plus and the minus next to each other and still resize the console ;) )

Ha ha. Glad I pushed you a bit to do this at last with my yakuake-split mod! Congrats! You were really quick and resizable splits are better!

I just looked at it. Great!
You really got into it man. My respects!

List of suggestions:
1. I find it counter intuitive to
press "split terminal verticaly" and see
horizontal line. I have to think twice.
Why not to use shorter and more intuitive: "Vertical split"
which will split terminal vertically not horizontally.
Semantically I understand what you mean but it is counter intuitive to press vertical and see horizontal line.
Please correct it! I hope others would agree.

2. Add the last killer quad split option. Often it is needed to get quickly 4 splits instead of doing it manually.

3.Again. Consider changing to turning off of the title bar not the tab bar (who ever turns of the tab bar?).
This is a usability issue. The vertical space is precious!

3a. Chosing plastic theme and turning off tabbar garbles the title bar icons.

4.Numbering issue. Accumulating numbers are annoying. I was close to try to fix it too but I see that it involve some additional code.

5.Any chance to intercept KPart to add option to the context menu? Seems hard though. I have no idea.

> Add the last killer quad split option. Often it is needed to get quickly 4 splits instead of doing it manually.

As written in the change log, a quad split prefab is available from the session menu (press and hold the New Session button) or as a keyboard shortcut.


> Consider changing to turning off of the title bar not the tab bar (who ever turns of the tab bar?).

Adding this option requires extending/augmenting the skin format, and I'd like to think it out carefully to cope up with one that covers both as well as other scenarios. I don't like hacks.


> Chosing plastic theme and turning off tabbar garbles the title bar icons.

If by "garble" you mean "cuts off": Yes, the skin is not designed to work with only a title bar. See above, the skin format needs to be redesigned to be flexible enough for such things. It isn't currently, and I don't intend to break the skin format for 2.8.

I find it very counter-intuitive to press "Split Terminal Vertically" and get two terminals side-by-side (which is why I implemented it the other way around), but your way is consistent with Kate - I'll swap the labels.

I cannot change the strings otherwise, however, as Yakuake 2.8 is presently in string freeze to allow the translators to catch up.

6. Why not to also add spliting icons to the left of tabs as in my yakuake-split mod. This makes splitting and closing frames faster and more convenient rather than menu. You could take icons from my sources.
This will probably become incompatible with current themes. But the gain of convenience is significant. I do not see the reason to stick with the theme standart for this app. More over it is not hard to modify these tiny themes in the end. Think about it.

7.Make use of Ctrl+Shift+left(right) too.

As written above, I intend not to break the skin format for Yakuake 2.8. Extending the skin format to be more flexible is on my agenda for the future, but requires careful thought.


> Make use of Ctrl+Shift+left(right) too.

Ctrl+Shift+Left/Right are pressently used to move session on the tab bar, consistent with the default shortcuts in Konsole. I'd like to remain consistent with the default shortcuts in Konsole to ease switching from Konsole to Yakuake.

Your both points are valid. Now that I see the shortcut is already in use.
Making changes which affect themes is defenitely for next releases.

8. I mix up close terminal and close session. And it is easy to accidentally close the entire session instead of just a frame. May be to make an option in the menu to warn about closing session?

I'll add it in the next version (2.8.1 or somesuch) when I can add strings again.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
