It seems odd to have all of these special KIO URLs that we don't actually want to use because they're rough and underdeveloped. They're rough and underdeveloped because they're hidden by default, so nobody sees them, and nobody files bugs or submits patches for them. But I do see your point.
Opps, I've corrected the bug number.
I don't think this is "semi-useful". " A Recent Documents feature in the file manager and open/save dialogs is IMHO really important, especially for lesst-technical users who use features like this on other platforms expensively instead of making extensive use of folder hierarchies. "The user can add it" is a problematic response since 99.9% of users don't know this exists, and therefore don't know that this functionality is available in the first place (and if they did, they would find it challenging to add).
Actually, could you edit the Summary as follows?
This works really well in my testing. I like it. Let's implement rename-with-long-press in another patch.
Removing these lines entirely instead of commenting them out
Any more opinions?
I managed to get arc set up. Am I basically going to do this?
Updating diff to try to get it to apply with arc (will use arc for future revisions)
I'll just leave this here: ;-) https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=290747

Yeah. I don't have a Reviewboard account, and it seems a bit silly to create one seeing as how it's going away soon. Anyone wanna nuke it?
Excellent. Let's continue that discussion in a bug report I just filed to avoid losing it once I can commit the patch (hopefully later tonight):
Yes, I think that makes sense, but it wouldn't be quite enough, since Plasma ships with three UI options for the launcher button, and Application Dashboard is only one of them. Each one I think needs to prominently highlight recently-installed applications.
@emmanuelp Ping! It would be great to get your blessing so we can land this.
I quite agree that we should make launching programs more discoverable in other ways--especially launching new programs ("I just installed this thingy; now where is it!?"). I've recently been thinking about that myself, in fact. In Ubuntu Unity, newly-installed programs get added right to the Dock. In Windows, they appears at the top of the Start Menu. GNOME and macOS have sub-optimal UX here.
Fair enough. Thanks for merging the other patch! Abandoning this one.
I strongly believe that having a visible launch button is critical. The launch button may be meaningless fluff for me, and you, and other developers, but developers don't need to use GUI software center apps. We're not the intended audience.
Thanks Henrik! Yes, I have a developer account and should be able to commit now. I haven't had the time to actually set that up yet though. I'll look into it late tonight or tomorrow.
I suspected as much. Abandoning.
Missed one more tiny formatting issue
Removed unnecessary parentheses and cleaned up the summary/commit message

@aacid, does it apply now for you?
Oh I see. Here's how it looks with the Oxygen style:
Mon, Sep 18
I approve, FWIW.
Lovely, much better.

Looks good to me. @anthonyfieroni?

So for the record, I agree with folks that our "are you sure you want to close all these tabs" dialogs could stand for a bit of usability polishing.

Does the SVG version look any better?
Sounds good to me!
@sanjibanb, can you update the new splash screen to use the SVG that Torsten is referring to?
I rather prefer 100x100 since it looks nice and sharp, but would accept 150x150 if other folks think it's okay.
That still looks blurry to me, though it's not your fault. The source 192x192 image itself looks blurry, as if it's been scaled up. Shame we don't have a better icon, or it's not an SVG. If you can change the size of the icon to the point where it doesn't look blurry, I'll approve it.
The size is much better, but now it's rather blurry. Is there a high-res icon we can use instead?
Looks good to me too.
I'm willing to commandeer this patch and with with folks to do the wording change. Do you approve, Albert?
I did test with Oxygen, as that's a built-in theme. It looks fine:

Can you add a screenshot of what this looks like, maybe?
Wed, Sep 13
FWIW, this looks good to me.
@alexeymin No, I don't have commit access. I have applied for a developer account, but am still waiting to hear back. In the meantime, would you mind committing it for me?
Showing the most recently used or most popular tags presents a usability issue since the list will be constantly changing and re-ordering itself, which impedes muscle memory and makes the software seem unstable. I would prefer that it show the tags in the order that they are created, and allow them to be re-ordered as normal--including from the "show more tags" view.

All right, I will do so, and submit my own revision: https://phabricator.kde.org/D7776
Rebased the diff from git master, so hopefully it will apply cleanly now.
I'm willing to take over ownership of the patch. I already had literally this exact diff waiting in the wings anyway in case nobody responded to https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/6y3k45/ever_wanted_to_contribute_to_kde_heres_an_easy/
Colored tags would be ideal. Agreed that it's out of scope for this patch, but good to work towards nonetheless.
FWIW, Apple's Finder already has this exact feature, and shows 7 tags by default, plus an "All Tags" item below them.
Thank you! I don't have commit access, so someone else will need to do it, I'm afraid.
https://phabricator.kde.org/D7700 is definitely better. My patch here was just a quick-and-dirty way to get it quickly. We can close mine if that gets committed.
Agreed. I haven't forgotten about this FYI.
Made sure the bitrate is a float, not an int
Any remaining objections?
@emmanuelp Does this look commitable now?

ADDING VDG. I think it still makes sense to keep them in the toolbar as well, since there are many times when you might not have the Operations panel open but still want to rotate an image (it's one of the most basic operations).
