kate-editor.org moved

The website is now on a new server, which is a lot faster than the old one and software/hardware is fresh again.
Hope the problems we had in the past few weeks are over now.
No other real downtimes are planned, perhaps some reboots but nothing more than some minutes ;)
Hope I can now finally setup my planned automated unit-tests and build ;)
The DNS transfer seems to be faster than thought, still some people might arrive at the old server, where now only a stupid “Maintainance” page is up. The IP of the new server is 85.214.230.250.

kate-editor.org moving

In the last weeks, the homepage was sometimes down, as the server it is on is slowly dying. I just negotiate the transfer to a new one. That one will allow additional stuff to be run, guess we than even have nightly unit test runs (at least I hope so) ;)

Therefor it may be, that the site is not reachable, as DNS transfer might always take some days.

SmartRanges goodbye

Like told in previous posts here and there, KDE 4.6 won’t have a KatePart that supports the SmartInterface but instead KatePart moves on to the new and shiny (and much simpler) MovingInterface for the handling of automatic moving cursors and ranges.

Now the big cut is done: KatePart in /trunk no longer implements the SmartInterface. KDevelop already adopted the new interface in a development branch, lets see how that all evolves.

SVN commit 1162946 by cullmann:

Smart* handling is purged in kate part now for KDE 4.6.
It seems to work, at least I used it in that state now more than a day.
More stuff needs polishing still, like removing the duplicated edit history, but nice first start.

Featured Articles

Looking back at the last month, migrating our Kate homepage over to WordPress was a vast success. The useful content we had on our old Drupal was copied over. The benefit of WordPress is that we now have a nice blog software as well with which we even aggregate some external blogs related to Kate. The new homepage is also more structured by having a list of featured articles showing useful resources, such as links to user or developer documentation.

The idea behind of the featured articles is to provide links to blog entries explaining in more depth what you can do with Kate. There are lots of useful tricks probably even some KDE developers aren’t aware of. If you have further hints of how to efficiently use Kate, please contact us and write a blog entry on kate-editor.org.

Besides that, thanks to all contributors for our awesome release in 4.5! :)
