[2010-03-23] BasKet 2.0 Beta 1 Released

The BasKet project is proud to announce the release of version 2.0 beta 1. This version serves as a pre-release version for developers and distributors and should not be considered suitable for a production system. BasKet 2.0 will be a new major release which brings Qt4 and KDE 4 compatibility to BasKet and paves the way for future releases which take advantage of KDE 4 technologies such as Akonadi and Nepomuk. Due to the pervasive nature of these changes, there may be inevitable bugs in some features of the new release. However, the new version is in many ways more stable and robust than previous releases (especially when running on the KDE 4 platform) and users are recommended to switch to the new version when it comes out.

We hope to release version 2.0 within a few months.

Previous versions of BasKet, which depended on KDE 3 libraries, are now considered deprecated and will no longer be maintained.

Does 0.6 already feature a kicker applet? That's the one thing that keeps me from using this app, I need it to be always visible and accessible (other than popping the whole app up through a systray icon) to really make use of this, and I'd love to :)

Just a simple applet with drag & drop functionality which shows tha last n additions to a certain basket, that would be awesome!

Hi! Thanks for the nice piece of work :)

Run "basket --start-hidden".

In a future version, there could be a graphical option to that, since lot of people asked it.

This does not works, it starts like without it (0.6.0 beta2).

$ basket --start-hidden

Which translated, means "unknown option. Use --help for a list of available options in command line"

You would not have been able to convince me that you could make an improvement on sticky notes... But boy this is quite an improvemnt!

My only hope is that someday Basket contents will be optionally encrypted...

Report

Sebien

Baskets already can be encrypted with a GPG private/public key, or a simple password.

But it need some libraries like libgpgme.

Run ./configure by hand and at the end, it should warn you if you do not have the needed libraries, and it will tell you where to download them.

If it doesn't complain, it should work.
It's in the "Basket" menu: click "Password..." to set up one.

If ./configure doesn't complain but the feature is not there, then please post a bug report.

Praise the Lord! What an amazing application this is. I can hardly remember I've seen a more well-designed application that this, version 0.6. It's very graphical, it's not the ordinary KDE widget style. It's simply outstanding.

It's great to see kontact integration! I'm just hoping my edgy setup includes this so I won't have to compile from scratch :)

However, "not using the ordinary KDE widget style" would be a negative for me, not a positive. I have a KDE style pre-chosen, and for the sake of familiarity, ease-of-use, and overall desktop integration, I prefer KDE apps that stick to the same style guidelines.

Nice app, especially the dev. version!
One thing that I'm missing (or maybe just haven't found yet?) is the ability to filter using a date or date range, like 'show all items that were added yesterday'. Maybe incorporate a KDE calendar widget...? This would greatly ease searching for me, and allow me to look back at any date to see what I've been doing more or less because when I see the items that I added then, I will remember :-)

Report

Sebien

14 years ago

Very nice idea.

Here is the mockup I came up by thinking to your date filtering use case:

Between the filter text edit and the tag combobox, I will add a calendar icon that, when clicked, popup that menu:

x No date filtering
[ Last Modified... ]
Today
Yesterday
This week
Last week
Before >
After >
[ Added... ]
Today
Yesterday
This week
Last week
Before >
After >

So user can check one option.
"Before" and "After" popup a calendar to choose a date.

I don't know if it's needed to search in a range.

vincentschut

Looks nice!
Maybe also add a 'specific date' option so you can choose any date, maybe even by using a calendar widget?
Date ranges might be handy, but maybe more difficult (gui-wise) to implement? They could turn out handy when not remembering exactly when you added something.

is there an option where you can set which browser to open a URL in basket? i was using this the past few weeks(til my monitor failed) and i can't seem to do that. i want it to open using FF or another browser of my choice...

:D

BTW, great app!

Please use the following instructions to change the Web browser to use:
http://basket.kde.org/configure-links-openning.php

As it seams to be a very requested option, I will add it in the Configuration dialog, so people won't need to install KControl (and the whole kdebase package) just to change the browser, like in Amarok 1.4.

Thank you for the new feature (screenshot), I really love it.
Now I can easy make a screenshot and copy it into openoffice.

There is allready a small bug:
The cross of the Mousepointer is also in the image. Is it possible to hide the cross?

Report

Sebien

14 years ago

You mean the mouse cursor is printed on the screenshot?
That's strange: it's a bug present only on your computer.
I don't have it. And KSnapshot don't have it too on my computer.
In fact, the BasKet Screenshot Feature was copied exactly from KSnapshot.

So, can you start KSnapshot, grab a zone of the screen and tell me if the bug is also present with this software?

Can you send me an image grabbed by BasKet?
So I can look at what the bug is.

Can somebody confirm the bug?
Thanks.

And a little parenthesis:
That's not really the goal of BasKet Note Pads to take screenshots (but it's really handy when taking notes, the main goal).
Could I suggest you to use KSnapshot?
It have more options (take all the screen, or the current window, take a shot after a timer...).
I assigned it to the key [PrintScr] and in KDE 3.5 it have a button "Copy to Clipboard".
Then it will be easier: one key press plus a click on "Copy" and your baskets will not be fulfilled with temporar data :-)
But that's just a suggestion!
