Plasma's panel is now resizable, interviewed.
Yesterday, Sebastian Sauer commited some changes to the Plasma panel that make it possible to resize it. This has been a much-wanted feature. Earlier already, Olivier Goffart has made it possible to have two rows of tasks in the taskbar, and also to only show windows from the current virtual desktop in the taskbar. Result is a much better configurable panel now. You guys rock. :-)I sat down and started fixing some applets that didn't behave quite well at small sizes. One victim was the digital clock. The battery now tries a bit harder to squeeze itself in the space it gets, and the panel now actually respects the taskbar font setting from kcontrol. I've also added some animations to the battery, so now if you unplug your AC adapter, you can actually see the AC adapter flash disappear, so the battery applet gives the user a bit more feedback. Also, the label showing the charge percentage on top of the battery now fades in and out nicely. Plasma::Phase goodness all over. :-) On other news, during the last days, I also gave an email interview to Richard Hughes for Linux Tech Daily.
