            Bug ID: 320783
           Summary: Bring back the background mode
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: konsole-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: kubry at gmx.com

I will restrain me from writing about what I think of subtracting software
capabilities that people use,  furthermore without any minimal survey or study
of its use.

So in http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-commits&m=136172706100642 we can see that the
background mode feature has been removed, and in
http://lists.kde.org/?l=konsole-devel&m=135316608321148&w=2 we can see a
"justification" like 'All in all, I feel that option is more like a trick or
demonstration of   "we can also do what yakuake does. well, kind of"'.

Perhaps someone hasn't realised that Konsole has more features than Yakuake, we
just have to look at the features available from the menu, to start with.

The background mode feature isn't perfect, of course that it can be improved...
but having Konsole, and its advanced capabilities, available with a global key
is much better than switching to Yakuake and losing features.

The background mode feature can be brought back now instead of waiting for the
new release for people to complain when they realise that they push the keys
and Konsole doesn't appear.
