KDE Misfeature

Please look at the above screenshot. Yes, I know, it hurts. No, I did not draw this with The Gimp. This is an actual Amarok screenshot, running under KDE 3.5.5. How the hell did those ugly squares appear all over the screen, is it a virus? No, it's a KDE feature!

Bang, bam, boom

I've been knocking down my to-do list like there's no tomorrow. I posted recently about the VFAT device rewrite; it is now complete and early testing results seem to be positive (it's been renamed to "Generic Audio Player" by the way). In addition, ATF backend support should now be fairly complete. I've been debugging it for a while and everything seems to work well now.

More on the VFAT rewrite

The VFAT rewrite continues apace (it may get renamed for 1.4 final).  Many functions have now been implemented, and far from scaring me, I now feel quite comfortable with the code I've written.  Just goes to show how taking a fresh perspective can really make a difference.  It should be working much better than the previous incarnation of the plugin once it's done, and hopefully folks using 1.4 final will be happy with it.
