I know that experiments in kde >= 4.5 won't break, that is solved in your
But with the patched step from 4.5 you can't use any step file written with an
older step, that is the problem.
All step users can't work with the new step on their old experiments anymore,
opening a step file from kde < 4.5 the get the error message "Item \"%1\" has
no stored property named \"%2\"".
Even if I'd like to see this patch getting committed (because nearly all
translation of inertia are wrong), the backwards compatibility has to be
* Either implement versioning of .step files or
* Give our users some help how to adapt their old step files (improve the error
message and explain how to fix this issue, add that to the handbook
documentation, provide a script to update the step files by changing inertia to
Btw, the step handbook has an empty chapter kdeedu/doc/step/examples.docbook.
It would be great to improve that by describing the examples shipped with
You dont need to write docbook for that, just send plain text and I'll markup
