None! =)

==== Runners ====
 
==== Runners ====
* pull in options from kdesktop/minicli.cpp and merge into shell and app runners
+
* runners, runners and more runners!
* ServiceRunner: better matching (case insensitivity, substring matching, performance, etc)
+
* SessionRunner: connect QActions up, show users and sessions, etc
+
* ShellRunner: parse the command line better so one can enter things like "ls -lR" and it will still know to activate
+
* CalculatorRunner: complete ('''Baris''')
+
* Search Runner: use strigi
+
* listen to async match updates (Interface:updateMatches())
+
* determine how to order runner plugins for searching; categorization?
+
* runners, runners and more runners! e.g. a kalkhi plugin...?
+
  
 
==== Interface ====
 
==== Interface ====
* abstract out the svg background part of Interface and have it subclass QDialog; then make screensaver/lock dialogs subclass that and therefore look a bit more sexy and consistent ('''Baris''')
+
* improve paging
* options slide drawer animation
+
* nicer user switcher
  
 
==== Misc ====
 
==== Misc ====
* install [[Development/Tutorials/D-Bus/Autostart_Services|D-Bus autoactivation service]]
 
* javascript bindings to runner.h

''This is what we are focusing on implementing right now:''
 
* '''RootWidget''' (the "desktop")
 
** Controls box: an expand-on-mouse-over widget that sits on top of the graphicsview and provides discoverable access to zooming, jumping, configuration, adding of elements, locking ...? Perhaps raptor could come into play here? ('''Matt Williams, milliams''')

* '''Documentation'''
 +
** design docs coverage (workspace/plasma/design/)
 +
** Techbase tutorials for:
 +
*** Wallpaper plugins
 +
*** Containments
 +
*** DataEngine
 +
*** Service
 +
*** Theming
 +
** website overhaul
 +
* '''General libplasma'''
 +
** more unit tests.
  
* '''Desktop class''' (QGrahpicsView subclass):
+
* '''Plasma::Applet'''
** Implement configurable background painting. This can in part be ported from kdesktop.
+
** add global settings config page, if it exists in the Package (which means adding a pair of entries in packages.cpp for globalconfigui and globalconfigxml), alongside the per-applet ones
** Add form factor constraint to Desktop and have it pass that on to Plasma::Applets. in lib/plasma.h there is a Plasma::AppletConstraint enumeration; that should be used to denote whether an applet is free to size itself (e.g. it is on the desktop)
+
** a way to access resources for customization (think: clock faces)
** Add support for Plasma::ScreenEdge to Desktop
+
** Implement the zooming of objects.
+
** Implement the grouping of objects in collections (with special containers).
+
** Saving and loading of layouts
+

* '''Widgets''' [[../Widgets|Here is a page describing the nature of these widgets]]. Widgets still needed that aren't implemented yet are:
** A non-editable text label. One comes with Qt, we need a DataVisualization version of it.

** Welcome
currently in kicker
+
*** offer quick access to a few starting points including: documentation, the online community, kde tips, configuration, etc.
 
+
*** each button should show a little help text when clicked along with some links/buttons that the user can click on to go somewhere.

Warning
If you clear a task, please write "Completed" near it. If you are still working on it, please put your name. Percentage of the work done is accepted.

[edit] Tasks

If you want to claim a task, please put your name (or nickname, both is better) in brackets near the task you wish to claim. Please add it when you start working on it, and if you stop, please remove it, so we can know "who is working on what" and what tasks still needs to be started.

And, of course, this will avoid duplication of work. Thanks a lot! =)
