{{ Moved To Community | KGet}}
==Introduction==
+
 
+
==Design==
+
 
+
==Roadmap==
+
===KGet 2.5 (in KDE 4.5)===
+
* Implement transfersRemoved/Added signals with a QList as parameter (unhack r1064328)
+
* Better error-handling for transfers, using a setError() method -> discuss this with the whole team
+
* Something like a filesizechecker, which informs/warns the user if there's no space free on the disk
+
 
+
==General ToDo==
+
===Core===
+
* MultiSource Downloading
+
* Add Advanced Details support
+
===User Interface===
+
====Main View====
+
* Add advanced details area (show chunk view, peer view, file view, statistics view etc...). Use tabview to display multiple views.
+
* Add a coloured band over the mainview displaying the currently display items. For example if I select "Downloads" from the sidebar it should display "Downloads". If instead I select a specific group <groupname> it should display "Downloads - <groupname>"
+
* Add valid download time frame, global or individual.
+
* Show average transfer speed when finished
+
====SideBar====
+
* Re-import the sidebar. Might be a tree-view.
+
* Add a "Finished" item. This will point to the downloaded files.
+
* Add a popupmenu to add or delete groups by right-clicking on them.
+
* Implement the selection of a specific group. In this way selecting a group from the sidebar should display only its transfers.
+
* Make the sidebar capable of several sizes for its items (16, 22, 32, ...)
+
====DragBasket====
+
* Show downloading progress, if multiple downloads are going, show each for 1 or 2 senconds.
+
====SysTray====
+
* Implement progressive filling of the icon in the system tray.
+
* Use KPassivePopups to notify when all the transfers have been downloaded.
+
====Plasmoid====
+
===Usability===
+
* Ask the user if he/she wants to delete the transfer (or probably if he/she wants to delete the tmp-file)?
+
* Let the user add new download-sources to a multithreaded transfer manually
+
* Handle the situation when we remove a group which has transfers.
+
* If user resume a download and find the disk space is not enough, implement a option which can move and continue the transfer to another user-specified place.
+
* Add a wizard on the first app execution, where the user can set his download folders and other "vital" settings like the integration with Konqueror. Perhaps we could provide a good default like ~/downloads/.
+
* Check there is enough space left before downloading file
+
* Proxy-support, not global, only for kget (we need to wait for kdelibs)
+
* Right-click menu to change transfer properties (filename, destination directory, url)
+
* Add option to show newtransferdialog on top, using activiateWindow(). (DONE)
+
===Optimization===
+
* Profile kget and look for possible optimizations, done for:
+
** Removing multiple/single transfers
+
** adding (== loading) many transfers
+
** starting/stopping many transfers
+
** ... further improvements there most likely still possible
+
* Make KGets handling of many downloads smarter, (maximum number of open connections per server).
+
* Recursion and other wget features.
+
===Plugins===
+
====KIO====
+
* Save referer page for downloads.
+
* Preserve timestamp of downloaded files (as option)
+
====BitTorrent====
+
* Fix crashes in Advanced-Details
+
====ContentFetch====
+
* Fix thread related issues.
+
* Polish youtube downloader.
+
* Prepare to write megaupload/rapidshare downloader.
+
* Write the baidu mp3 downloader (long term).
+
====MLDonkey====
+
* Write a ML-Donkey-plugin, based on libkmldonkey.
+
