Dear all,
Thanks for your comments and supports.

Yeah, you're right that we don't need to resize the widget. I'll fix this soon.

If we update the screenshots frequently, that would take too much CPU I think. One solution would be only taking screenshot when we iconify (minimise) a task.
I'll try to implement this in future version.

Hi,
Please try to remove ./ksmoothdock directory in your home directory and run the program again. Because the configuration file has changed considerably between the two versions.
Hope this helps,

Thanks for your comment.

It's 2.0 because transparency is the technically hardest part for me to implement :)

About the bug, I'll try to fix it soon.

About the flickering, yeah, flicker-free is the most important feature of this kind of program. However, the flicker you mentioned is caused by resizing and moving the widget, so at the moment, I haven't figured out how to solve it yet.

Did you mean using snapshot of windows as icons? - Jun 17 2003

Thanks for your comments.

1) 2) These features will be implemented in future version.
3) As this is graphic-intensive, it will surely take some CPU power. However, it is usable.
Btw I'll try to optimise it further.
4) You can change the border color so it fits your wallpaper better.

In the next few days, I'll put up a new version with several optimisations. Hope it'll run fine on your system by then.

Thanks, I'll try to fix them.

About the transparent background, I don't know how to do it at the moment, but I'll try to figure it out in the next release.

Thanks for your comment. I'll try to clean the code.

About the MacOS features, actually I don't intend to make KSmoothDock a MacOSX clone. However, I'll try to implement features that are useful.

What is your system? In my system (PIII 850MHz) it runs fine, and it doesn't take much CPU power.

Btw, this v1.0 is the initial release. You're right that it should be called v0.1, but I just prefer calling the initial release v1.0. - Jun 12 2003

Sorry about the make errors. In fact this is the first time I use autoconf/automake/KDevelop so I still haven't fully understanded them yet.

Thanks genneth for pointing out the config cache problem. I have updated the source package with the one generated by KDevelop now (no config cache ...)

To illogic-al : Thanks for your offer :) - Jun 11 2003

Thanks a lot for your supports.

And sorry about the large packaging yesterday. I have updated it with a *.tar.gz sources package now.

About your comment on the background bar feature, in fact I intended to implement it. However, at the moment I haven't figured out how to do it technically (after reading KDE API documentation). I'll try to incorporate it into the next version.

Thanks you all, again, - Jun 11 2003
