Drop splash screen

Authored by kfunk on Jun 16 2016, 10:10 AM.



KDevelop 5 starts significantly faster with all the changes in the
plugin loading mechanisms. I've also been able to reduce start up time
of the welcome page plugin significantly lately. Still having a splash
screen seems old-fashioned, plus adds even more delay to the startup.

Thus finally want to kill it.

More reasons for removing the splash:

  • Delays startup unnecessarily
  • The splash screen is still broken in some configurations: Bug: ~10 px border on the right for instance (not going to fix it)
  • It's 2016, splash screens are kind of out of fashion.
