    So why does kwallet still not unlock on login?

    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92845

    Another one from 2004?

    Taking that logic to its logical conclusion: How can anyone make the claim their OS is "safer", since bugs that are not caught do not get fixed?

    The 10 year old bug isn't very bad since apparently it went unnoticed for 10 years

    Then I don't understand why the author didn't release it standalone.

    No, it is not. Sorry.
    The widgets part of 4.10 which have been ported to QML are:
    ActivityManager, lcdweather, systemtray, comic, widgetexplorer, pager, weather, battery, konqprofiles, lockout, nowplaying, notifications, printmanager, calculator, konsoleprofiles, notifier

    (located in /usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma/packages/ and /usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma/plasmoids/ under openSUSE)

    Hopefully 4.11 will finally have a complete port of the taskbar: http://techbase.kde.org/Schedules/KD...1_Feature_Plan

    OK, then please show me one *big project* with the similar size to KDE that has better QA, so that I can see&learn how they are doing. Hint, can't be GNOME, since I have shown you the statistics that they are *even worse* in this topic.

    You're the one trolling, I simply pointed out a bug in KDE and you call me troll? If you have nothing constructive to say just go away and shut the fuck up.
    Go into the bug report search "QML" every hit you'll get is regards to rewriting the taskbar into QML

    http://techbase.kde.org/Schedules/KD...0_Feature_Plan search "Task Manager" one of the hits is "Port Task Manager to QML" Marked as in progress

    Michael's article on KDE 4.10 features: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTIwNTQ One of the listed features listed is "Rewritten task manager" (and btw systray)."

    As per arch linux screenshots, because 4.10 has hit kde-unstable, I know that even though its marked as "In progress" it IS in release. Standard KDE procedure is any component that is the in process of being rewritten gets no bugfixes against the "legacy", especially if the new one is ABOUT to be released.

    New Task manager IS about to be released in about 2 weeks, thats not even enough time for a 4.9.x bugfix release to be put out. The bug may not officially be marked as "WONTFIX" but its definitely implied by the situation.

    If a version of the bug is still present in the new QML version then it may be fixed after that, but until the QML version is released and we see if the bug is still present or not that bug-- for all intents and purposes, is stalled.

    I don't use KDE but when I switch from Ubuntu to Mageia, I'll setup automatic donation to this distro.
    Though, crowdfunding and donating isn't the same. Crowdfunding offers more security: your money is used only if there is enough collected to do the job.
