  and other fixes


  Add new method globalShortcut which retrieves the shortcut as defined in global settings.

  New set of classes, called KMoreTools and related. KMoreTools helps to add hints about external tools which are potentially not yet installed. Furthermore, it makes long menus shorter by providing a main and more section which is also user-configurable.


  Fix KNotifications when used with Ubuntu's NotifyOSD (bug 345973)
  Don't trigger notification updates when setting the same properties (bug 345973)

  KDateTimeEdit: Fix so user input actually gets registered. Fix double margins.
  KFontRequester: fix selecting monospaced fonts only

  new method NETWinInfo::xcbConnection() -> xcb_connection_t*

  Consider visualParent rotation in popupPosition (bug 345787)


  Don't try to highlight if there is no spell checker found. This would lead to an infinite loop with rehighlighRequest timer firing constanty.


  Fix native file dialogs from widgets QFileDialog:
 * File dialogs opened with exec() and without parent were opened, but any user-interaction was blocked in a way that no file could be selected nor the dialog closed.
 * File dialogs opened with open() or show() with parent were not opened at all.
