Things you see here are incomplete and totally a work in progress

Who uses KNewStuff2

API Discussion

Classes will (mostly) be:

Generic TODO

  • Rename KNS::Entry, and, consequentially, KNS::CompleteEntry

What still needs to be done (getting rid of the above section)

  • Merge DXS and GHNS download dialogs. Also check with usability guys.
  • Add networking capabilities to Plasmagik.
  • Finish the code for the metadata generation.
  • The Handler, to locally manage packages.
  • Write a cache removal strategy, that should be the last bit of the networking stuff.
  • The CompleteEntry class, used also by the Handler, used to retrive all the availeable informations from an already downloaded package (needs to be written in a more detailed fashion)
  • Anything else?


KNewStuff2 will store all the files in a specific dir. The layout of this dir, and all the related information can be found here.
