Last week I moved to Skövde in Sweden. It's a middle-sized town (about 50000 inhabitants iirc) in the central of Sweden just between the two big seas. The weather is quite nice still and so far everything looks interesting. I did not see an elk yet, though :)

In order to have internet access I have to go into a shopping mall. This makes KDE development a bit harder for me as I used to be in contact via IRC a lot and use the web as api reference. That's it for now :)

update 2006-08-21: Skövde has about 50000 inhabitants.

Smart End

Since KDE 3.5.4 Kate Part supports "smart end". Right now it behaves like this when pressing "end":
  1. go to last non-space character
  2. go to the last character (i.e. hit end twice)
I'm writing this blog to get feedback about what's the right/expected behaviour. Is it as described above, or should we first go to the very last character, and to the last non-space only when hitting then end-key twice?

Feedback along with why you prefer solution A or B is welcome!

Kate in KDE 3.5.4

Finally, KDE 3.5.4 is out! We were able to fix a lot of issues in Kate and the bug curves went noticeably down. Thanks to all contributors for the nice KDE release :)
