In the past, KTextEditor notified the user about externally modified files with a modal dialog. Many users were annoyed by this behavior.
Starting with KDE Frameworks 5.27, KTextEditor will show an embedded widget for external changes, see:
Dominik and me got the Akademy 2016 Award for our work on Kate and KTextEditor.
I want to pass that on to all other contributors of both the application and the framework: You all rock and people seem to appreciate our work!
Lets keep on improving our stuff and providing people with a very usable editor and editor component for various use cases.
Arrived at Berlin for Akademy/QtCon 2016, too ;=)
Already met some other KDE & Kate people, lets see how the week goes.
