Yeah! Now I'm using the KDE desktop, but it doesn't mean I have left the GNOME desktop, only I want to know better both desktops so in the last weeks I have been programming with Qt/kdelibs/kparts and I have started two little aplications.

The first one is killo, a little browser. Currently it only supports web pages browsing.

The other one is kchm, a chm viewer. It's in beginning stages, so it only retrieves information from a CHM file and shows the contents.

Enhanced KListView look and feel.

I have reported a wishlist bug about the KListView appearance. Yeah, although I can write my own style with a QListView and QPainter/Arthur, I would like to see the QListView decorated root similar to the GtkTreeView, or at least something like in digikam.

The reported bug is in KDE bug tracker.

Integration between Kmail and Evolution

Both email clients use different formats and ways to store the folder info. Kmail stores the info in ~/Mail and Evolution use ~/.evolution.

I think a good idea would be to propose a standard to store mail between mail applications so you can share the mail data.

I have reported a bug in kde bugzilla about it. A first solution would be to look in kmail the .evolution folder and try to retrieve the mails (independient of the mbox/maildir format). The same can be done by the Evolution mail client. I will try to report it later to Ximian bugzilla.
