as RC 1 is approaching I would like to discuss an issue here.
There are some problems with the gwenview kpart (used by konqueror, akreagtor
and others for viewing images).
See Bug #161443
They (Konqueror and Akregator) have that issue on at least two major german
websites (one of them in the top 10 of most visited websites) and their feeds.
Also other sites in different languages may be affected.
I looked into the source, but well I do not know enough of the workings of
kparts and so on to fix it.
It affects a lot of users (see the number of bug reports) giving them a really
bad experince with Konqueror and Akreagtor.
A possible "fix" would be to make khtmlimage the default embedded viewer for
images. But I do not know the cons of that. Can gvpart do things that are not
possible with khtmlimage?
What do you think?
