I get crashes, too. Most notably on exit. That may have been fixed now ;)The
number of crashes have decreased considerably, still.

Verified, noted. The UI in 2.1 must be ported.

I haven't come across that.

That's by design I guess, but it needs to be improved as discussed elsewhere.

Could you elaborate?

The one for qeditor part seems to be working now. What doesn't work for you

I can view some documentation. Where do you see this message?

In which folder?

It works only after gideon is restarted, I think. It should be possible to do
this on the fly, though.

Noted. Have to port UI from 2.1 for that.

Look at HEAD. Fixed. :)

Which ones? That's an important issue.

I believe you with these. :) Noted.

I don't see that now, maybe fixed.

Yes it does.

I know! I generalized the configuration for doctree folder: qt/kde libraries.
There is an "update" button that's not implemented yet!

I think we need to write a script that would do that. It may not be too easy,
though. Some of the things may not be translatable.

Ouch. Who uses Java here? ;)

I've seen those I think.

Well we're past that stage unfortunately. Let's think for upcoming 3.1.

Yes, that's important.

'Build' does switch to messages. Have to make a list of which ones.

That goes to Roberto ;)

It is available. Have you looked at file tree?

Not a priority thing, but yes it ought to be the same way as in 2.1

I'm going to filter these and put them in TODO file.
