Palapeli: Visual changelog for today
March 29, 2010
Nothing happened in Palapeli land since the 1.0 release together with KDE SC 4.4. The wishlist was slowly growing, but today I’ve started to implement some smaller items on the todolist. The big ones (GHNS integration, puzzle piles and rotateable pieces) are still left, but now I present you the first new features that will appear in Palapeli 1.1 (KDE SC 4.5):
This screenshot shows two closed wishlist items: Instead of a background texture, one can now also select a solid color. Also, the puzzle name is displayed in the window title. (The code is a one-liner, which I unfortunately forgot to add before the 4.4 feature freeze.)
It is now possible to select multiple pieces at once, either by holding Ctrl and clicking on the pieces, or by dragging a rubberband around the pieces. All pieces will then be moved at once when you drag one of them. The selection state is indicated by a colored shadow (according to the color scheme), which might be hard to recognize in this screenshot because the rubberband has nearly the same color.
