Hi.

From an hour ago:
#kpdf:
16:22 < isaac> uhm, refresh my memory
16:22 < isaac> will kpdf ever use poppler?
16:22 < isaac> will it be replaced by okular?
16:24 < tsdgeos> maybe
16:24 < tsdgeos> maybe
16:24 < Niedakh> well if poppler's development process becomes more open
16:24 < isaac> I see :)
16:24 < Niedakh> and if someone feels like porting to poppler
16:25 < tsdgeos> i can do both
16:25 < isaac> sounds scary! :P
16:25 < tsdgeos> just need more time
16:25 < tsdgeos> and more karma
16:25 < tsdgeos> :D

#koffice:
16:30 < isaac> it would definitely better to be able to use poppler as a
               external library :)
16:31 < mart> isaac: indeed, I heard talk about it - I _think_ someone was
              planning to do it...
16:31 < isaac> mart: nice to know:)
16:31 < mart> ... but I don't remember who, or if they were just saying "we
              ought to"
16:37 -!- bram85_ is now known as bram85
16:48 < mart> what's with the complete lack of poppler docs online?
16:53 -!- tsdgeos [n=tsdgeos@kde/aacid] has joined #koffice
16:53 < tsdgeos> hi?
16:53 < BCoppens> mart: isaac : tsdgeos was planning on doing that
16:53 < BCoppens> :P
16:53 < tsdgeos> yup i was planning
16:53 < tsdgeos> just did not have time
16:53 < BCoppens> tsdgeos: isaac was complaining that it sucks to update
16:53 < tsdgeos> so i can give some guidance
16:53 < mart> tsdgeos: 'was planning' != 'still planning' ?
16:54 < tsdgeos> well it sucks koffice code is xpdf 2.0 based
16:54 < BCoppens> tsdgeos: biggest issue: 12th is feature freeze (although, 
you
                  might considder it more 'bugfix'
16:54 < tsdgeos> mart: not for koffice 1.5
16:54 < tsdgeos> maybe for 2.0

Best regards
