Okular, KDE’s universal document viewer, has a really cool feature I’m using for years already: “Go > Forward” and “Go > Backward”. These two actions allow to quickly jump to positions in the document where you came from in a chronological order. Consider e.g. reading the phrase “As shown in , …”, and you want to know quickly lookup reference . So you click on it, and okular will jump to the list of references. And “Go > Back” will bring you back to exactly the position where you came from.
In fact, I removed the “Previous” and “Next”-page buttons from the toolbar in favor of the “Back” and “Forward” feature, which is much more useful to me Given that my colleagues were not aware of this feature (all experts in LaTeX and all using Kile and Okular), I thought to praise it here in a dedicated blog. Interestingly, the Okular Handbook is missing this feature. Any takers to fix this? Update: This is also mentioned in the Okular handbook
Now the statistics of the kate.git are online for public viewing.
They will be updated daily, located on: http://kate-editor.org/stats/
Unfortunately, the statistics of the last years are not that “representative”, as the moves of Kate around in SVN and to Git biased the statistics, as I did a lot of the commits for syncing and moving and so on.
Still it is amazing how MANY people did contribute during Kate’s history! (see Kate Authors)
A big THANK YOU to all contributors that appear there (and all the people that provided patches others merged in, did the testing, bug reporting, translations, …).
(And thanks to the authors of git_stats.)
The Projects plugin in Kate just gained a context menu for the tree view that shows several git tools, if available:
Clicking will open the corresponding application in the correct working directory. Currently, only gitk, qgit and git-cola are supported. If you want more git integration, you probably have to use KDevelop or QtCreator
