This page is meant to display the current state of reloading content on several actions with caching enabled or disabled.


KDE 4.1 trunk r803905

The cache policy was set to sync with a cache cleared before and big enough to fit everything. As to printing I printed everything to PDF as I didn't have that much spare paper. I hope that doesn't actually influence the tests I did.

  • (1) in the caching test, gvpart displayed an image from a previous uncached test even on shift-reload
  • (2) regarding images with cache enabled, the okular part always reloads the image whereas the khtmlimage part only reloads when it's being switched to for the first time. It almost seems as if htmlimage and gvpart were not sharing the same part.
  • (3) contrary to (2) the okular part always reloads images no matter the caching settings and even if switching okular -> gvpart -> okular

Summary

As it seems everything except switching the view does not reload the content you are viewing. Switching the view should behave the same so this might be considered a bug. When having the cache enabled, the gvpart doesn't show any updates but keeps showing the old version which is a bug as well. Also on cachin
