kvermette added a comment to D6313: Support Icon Scale from Icon naming specification 0.13.

For SVG icons this is fine.

For pixmap icons this is only part of the needed changes.

We don't want to load the 16px image and then resize it, I think that's what this would do? That would be an unacceptable regression.

We would need a folder containing the 16px icons at 2x. This is now part of the FD.O icon spec [1]. But that means updating all of our icon theme parsing and a much much bigger patch.
Or we could just special case SVGs here.

kvermette lowered the priority of T5579: Drupal Theme from High to Low.

We're moving to Wordpress, so this is lower on priority as we'll switch to Drupal 7 later for the few websites we have running on Drupal. I'm also starting a "migration program" for any website willing to switch to Wordpress, where I will dedicate some time to port their content (if reasonable) and write a small amount of customization software to enable the change.

kvermette added a comment to D5245: Desaturate non-responsive windows.

My only concern is that many windows with the Breeze style have very little colour, some (like Kate) might not see the effect be distinguishable at all. Should we perhaps consider using an overlay colour selected from the colour scheme which we know will stand out? E.g. Tint the window contents the "Negative" (usually red) colour?

kvermette added a comment to D4400: Plasma 5.10 "Cascade" Wallpaper.

Did you try my suggestion regarding optimizing the image for a lossy compression algorithm?

Fredrik made a Khronos KTX (compressed texture) reader for plasma wallpapers which could significantly reduce memory consumption for the wallpaper, especially for the 4K variant. I think we should give it a try for 5.10?

Also, please consider adding a 1920x1200 variant. There were complaints that the 5.9 wallpaper didn't come with this size (I also have that resolution for my desktop)

For some reason this completely slipped my mind; can you give me a quick refresher please?

OpenGL 4 and ES 3.1 add support for new high quality texture compression formats, such as BPTC on desktops, and ASTC on mobile. An uncompressed 4K texture consumes 32 MB of video memory, whereas a compressed texture with the same resolution only consumes 8 MB.

These formats are not lossless, so a compressed image is not going to be identical to the original image. Photographic images tend to compress extremely well, to the point where it is difficult to tell the compressed image apart from the original image. Vector images with sharp, precise outlines often do not compress well, since any compression artifacts that appear along an outline are going to be noticeable.

The fredrik/bptc branch in plasma-workspace adds support to the wallpaper plugin for loading compressed textures saved as .ktx files.

I have also ported Microsoft's MIT licensed BPTC encoder to OpenGL:

https://cgit.kde.org/scratch/fredrik/bptcencoder.git

This encoder uses compute shaders to encode the image.

I imagine we'll probably have the old designs hanging around for the next decade unless someone decides to pay for a couple full-time developers to actually overhaul the whole thing... Some people are also still converting things to Neverland. So, yeah, lets put the new stuff in a directory as they'll be co-existing for the foreseeable future.

@kvermette We don't do FTP access to any of our systems. Access is by SFTP (SSH keys only) usually. If you have a developer account I can grab your SSH key from there.

I'll need to double check with @imalchow how we want to architect the changes to cdn.kde.org though with the recent changes to using CDN77 for things.

I'm sure this is said on a regular basis, but at some point we should look at unifying the styling of the KDE websites. In the meantime, this change certainly isn't making them any less unified, and possibly even brings the apidocs slightly closer to the others stylistically.
