Hi everyone,

just a quick info in case someone is currently working or plans on working  
on KTouch.

I just hacked around in the KDE 4 trunk version of KTouch and started  
cleaning out/revising the keyboard layouts. Now the old ones, without the  
XML encoding, are stored in a subdirectory old_and_contributed, which also  
contains keyboard layouts I got sent by mail recently.

Also, I added a CMake option KDEEDU_KTOUCH_BUILD_WITH_PHONON that is  
normally only shown in the advanced options and turned off by default.  
Unless you turn this option explicitely on during the CMake configuration,  
the Sound-Preferences page won't be shown and the level change sounds  
won't be used. KTouch will also not be linked against Phonon, which should  
finally make it work under the KDE-Win port. As soon as Phonon has the  
required functionality, we can change the default for this config option  
to "on", or even remove it.

As soon as I'm through with revising the trunk version of KTouch (doing  
all the annoying Quality-Assurance stuff), I'll port the changes over to  
the stable 4.1.2 (or if I need more time) 4.1.3 tag.

Btw, if you plan on doing something with KTouch, I would appreciate a  
mail. Thanks a lot!
