Latte bug fix release v0.7.1


Latte Dock v0.7.1  has been released containing many important fixes and improvements for which you can find more details in the end of the article.

KDE Project

One more surprise.. :) Latte Dev Team decided that it would be best for the project to become officially a kde project and become part of the fantastic community and infrastrucure that provides. All the infrastructure after this release will be moved under kde umbrella meaning, source code, bug reporting/requests, translations, forum etc... That means that all translations will be part of kde processes and in the future the users will be benefit also with much easier installations and might new exciting features for v0.8. In the back of my head is that we might be able to use the store.kde.org infrastrucure for layouts, so the user can upload/download latte layouts online etc... For now our main focus will be to publish the next bug fix release entirely from kde infrastructure...

Latte Dock v0.6.1

Hello everyone...

Latte Dock v0.6.1 (bug fix release) is out and you can get its source from our release page at github. Those that dont want to build it by themselves should wait their distro's repos/channels to provide it. Many distros are already providing packages for v0.6.0 and we update that list at our main page in github.


Latte Dock v0.6
In this release we fix:

  • three important crashes
  • one important bug fix concerning tasks screen filtering
  • many small bugs here and there...


We have decided that v0.6 will follow the Plasma 5.8 LTS life circle and v0.7 which is already baked in our master branch will keep compatibility with Plasma 5.9 and above...

in our master branch we have already added many new exciting features that we consider important but I will leave this for now as the 0.7 release is scheduled for the mid of summer...


thats all for now...

regards,

Latte Development Team

You may ask, what is Latte and why are you so enthusiast about it?



History

@varlesh work -
As an author of Now Dock it was around late of November that I felt Now Dock to have reached its pontential as an internal plasma panel and plasmoid. At the same time @audoban author of Candil Dock reached me and pinged me to do something rare in the open source communities… and that was, combine our projects. Combine Candil’s fundamental philosophy of a standalone dock living outside plasmashel with Now Dock’s familiar interface for the dock and use only kde and plasma libraries in the process. That was enough for me to decide that the change worthed the effort. Time passed and in every step I am more than happy with that decision.

At this point I would like to thank a lot @audoban for the fantastic achievements, discussions and cooperation we achieved all this time we interact through the project!!! My girlfriend of course for her patience and support during the last development cycle!! :) and a big thank you to the many fantastic users, translators and enthusiasts that use the project through the master branch and are helping us discovering bugs very early, pointing us in new directions and becoming persistent when something is very important from a user point view and not that much from the developer’s one !!! :)

THANK YOU!!

You are the blood of the project without which a body becomes cold….

The new project was called Latte Dock  and the artwork and logo of course were created by the majestic @varlesh!!! :)

"...a plasma dock that provides an elegant and intuitive experience for your tasks and plasmoids..."

I think you had enough of my chattering around the history of the project :), let me outline some of the most important features:

Sorry....

I have just noticed that some old articles concerning Now Dock appeared in planetkde... So sorry for this!! I am preparing the announcement for the new Latte Dock and I touched a bit these Now Dock old articles in order to archive them in the future...

This was  a mistake from my side, please dont give them any attention as Now Dock is considered deprecated...

thanks a lot...

with regards,
