I think KPhone is the beginning of a great application but in order to become great the following issues need to be addressed:

* Doesn't store addresses in KDE addressbook
* Doesn't store SIP credentials in KDE Wallet
* OSS support needs to be scrapped in favour of ALSA
* Minor issues with sound quality, stability and usability

By reading the reply from the developers it's clear that this is not the direction Kphone is headed - and for them I think they've made the right choice. However this leaves us with a missing piece of software that the KDE needs. Someone either needs to convince the developers to go in our direction or use the existing code and fork our way.

I've written a lot about the flaws in KPhone and I would like to take the time to mention some of the things that KPhone does well. It _works_, unlike any of the alternatives I've tried. If you are looking for a SIP-phone then start with this one. - Oct 31 2004

I asked some questions about where KPhone development was heading a couple of months ago. Here's an excerpt from the reply I received:

Date: Sunday 18 July 2004 19:25
From: Juha Heinanen

Q: Are there any plans for KPhone to use the same addressbook as KAddressBook?

A: kphone is no longer a kde application, since many kphone users are not kde users.

Q: Are there any plans for storing SIP-account credentials (username and password) in KWallet?

A: same answer as above. - Oct 31 2004

Make that a few samples, the same text read aloud by different synthesizers. - Sep 02 2004

I suggest you add an audio sample of some text being read alound by KSayIt to the available downloads. - Sep 02 2004

I've submitted an ebuild to Portage. Hopefully it'll make its' way there in a couple of days.

My wishlist (in order):

A third column containing the referer
Improved stability
Validation of documents
Find published but unlinked documents - Aug 27 2004

A Kasablanca 0.4 ebuild has been added to the portage tree. Get it while it's fresh!

Oh, and a small feature-request: When adding a new bookmark could you move the keyboard focus to the name-field? Thanks.

Also I think Kasablanca 0.4 lost a thread on me last night (it was downloading two files at once even though I could only see that it was downloading one). I have no clue on how to reproduce it.

Keep up the good work!

Now I just have to wait a while longer until the Gentoo ebuild becomes available.

The screenshot looks great - text is much easier to read than the previous version I tried.

Hopefully this version will once and for all replace my current FTP-client lftp. - Jul 14 2004
