Colord-KDE 0.3.0 released!

KDE developer Daniel Nicoletti has announced the release of colord-kde 0.3.0. He recommends upgrading to this release as “it has lots of fixes compared to 0.2.0″.

Some of the changes are:

  • Lots of new translations (thanks to KDE tranlation teams)
  • Fix setting an ICC profile while KDE SC is starting
  • Fix setting the ICC_PROFILE X atom that applications like Krita, digikam, gimp use (I was impressed by how long it took to some user actually notice this but I just guess there aren’t many users doing color correction on apps…)
  • Add a mimetype handler to handle ICC profile files, so that when you click on an ICC file a dialog asks you if you want to import it.
  • Handle the talk with colord using auto generated classes from XML interface which simplified the code a lot and probably made some stuff faster and non-blocking
  • Improved support for colord 0.8
  • Improved information about why the calibration button is disabled thanks to Lukáš Tinkl
  • Moved the code that scans and parse ICC profiles to a thread so we don’t block the main KDED process
  • and of course a bunch of other fixes…

Nicoletti says, “For the next release I’ll try to make sure KWin color correction feature works with colord-kde (it should just work but seems it’s not working so I have to dig into this), and also a cool new feature is that we will have a native KDE dialogs for the calibration phase!”
