This change has been marked as submitted.

Review request for KDevelop.


This is my suggestion for a new splash screen in kdevelop. Sure, application startup is short anyways, but we've had the current splash screen for ages and it's time for something new. ;)

Click here for what it looks like:
Be careful, it's 3.5MB gif.

It needs a patch to kdevplatform for the progress info, which I'll submit shortly (it works without too, but you'll only see grey squares).

  app/splash.cpp PRE-CREATION 
  app/splash.h PRE-CREATION 
  app/main.cpp 4ad8f05 
  app/CMakeLists.txt c0e10ed 



I verified that even if something goes wrong in QML there's no crashes or strange behavior. You'll just get the splash screen without the colorful squares. Thus I think the risk of breaking something with this is low.
