in the last few days we've added the ability to save and restore applet layouts, associating of applets with mimetypes (so you can drag content to the desktop and have it represented by an appropriate applet), layout improvements, the start of layer-based effects for things like shadows/blur, more progress on the scripting front (including the appearance of ruby bindings in addition to the qtscript ones and further integration of libplasma into superkaramba/python), taskbar strides and much more. a whole bunch of interesting if not overly splashy stuff that needs to happen to make it actually usable.
krunner started to get search engine integration using xesam (well, a reasonable facsimile of it given that it isn't a completed spec yet) with strigi as the current reference implementation and the new krunner interface is approaching completion.
the control box, panels, menu, systray are on the hit list of things to kill off the list.
today, some more plasma work at the tt offices until early afternoon and then i head to darmstadt for the board meeting. right now, i need to shower, pack and tidy up the apartment a bit. 90 minutes is plenty of time for that, right?
