Review request for Dolphin, kdelibs, David Faure, and Hrvoje Senjan.

Repository: kbookmarks


We need to encode KBookmark URL to fix compatibility with KDE4 applications.

For example, KDE4 stores "~/????????" ("Downloads" in Russian) as

bookmark href="file:///home/vuohi/%D0%97%D0%B0%D0%B3%D1%80%D1%83%D0%B7%D0%BA%D0%B8/"

while KF5 stores "~/????????" as

bookmark href="file:///home/vuohi/????????/"

When the bookmark is created with KF5, KDE4 applications cannot open it.


  src/kbookmark.cpp 98ddc99 



Only quick testing is done. I deleted user-places.xbel, added bookmark with kwrite (KF5 version), checked if it's properly stored in new user-places.xbel and if Dolphin (KDE4 build) can open it from Places panel. Seems to work properly.
