General Issues

  • No support for Administrator Mode in modules
  • Hardcoded size and use of QScrollArea to prevent resizing on module load is worse than resizing
  • Hardcoded layout (100px wide items) breaks when larger fonts are used
  • The item model is always sorted alphabetically
  • No menu, not sure if this is intentional, there is some menu code in the program.
  • No application icon!
  • Krush bug reports
