Review request for kdelibs, Andreas Hartmetz and David Faure.


Updated API documentation. More specially the new API addition of KIO::Scheduler is going to be part of stable v4.6.5 release.

Summary (updated)

Currently the internal KIO metdata sent by an ioslave is not passed onto the other ioslaves until the originating ioslave emits its finished signal. Unfortunately, this has a side effect in that if the client application makes another request before the original ioslave is done, the internal meta-data information might not be sent to the new ioslave that would be created to service this new request.

This deficiency in the previous implementation of internal meta-data causes multiple address spoofing warning prompts when you use a kdewebkit based browser, e.g. konqueror + kwebkitpart or reKonq. That is because QtWebKit automatically starts retrieving script and css files in the background before the original site is downloaded completely.
