a) Have some consistency with hotkeys assigned to tabs
b) Allow methods to jump to the next active tab instead of cycling through all tabs
Currently if a section of the chat window other than the text entry is focused it is near impossible to get back there without the mouse. You should be able to tab back there or have some easy way to focus the text entry (isn't chatting the point? :)
As KDE4 is now shipping we should have people coming in from Gnome and more Windows users (both converting to Linux as well as using Kopete on Windows) Pidgin is a popular choice for all these users and a importer for the logs would be appreciated.
When links or files are dragged and hovered over the taskbar they pop up the associated window. For other tabbed applications when there is a drag and hoverover a tab that tab is given focus. Kopete should do the same.
a) Currently Kopete can notify users of all messages or only initial messages however there is no GUI control for it. One should be implemented!
b) Kopete should have a GUI way to manage notifications based on them being single chat or multiuser chat.
