It’s that time again, release time! In this period it seems very easy to round some edges and push up things.
And this because of the great contribution people is giving us via patches, comments (also on this blog), bug reports… I cannot remember a release where I coded myself so little and checked patches and suggestions so much :)
The result is this rekonq 2.2 release!
So, what’s new in rekonq 2.2?
Well, adblock coding is really not fun. But given some nice visible results, everything start to seem better.
So, let’s see the differences:
This easy test can be found here. These guys really had a nice idea about testing their product. I just took advantage from.

Yes, it’s back! I had to fix code due to our internal API change for the 2.x series. But everyone now should have this nice feature back. I know it was one of the most requested feature. You probably may got used to :)
Now you have it!
You may know that rekonq stores info about bookmarks (NOT the bk itself!) in nepomuk. If you have kde 4.10 installed (minimum requirement for this optional feature) you can click on the star urlbar icon and edit them. Unfortunately this costed us nepomuk1 support. We really cannot support 2 nepomuk versions. I’m sorry if you are having problems cause of this.
This is another strong request from rekonq users gone back. You have the same bk menu in the general tools menu and as an action(menu) to append to your urlbar. Maybe you need a screenshot to understand my ramblings :)
We had work and clean ups in various areas. KGet support has been improved letting it decide the destination folder. Lindsay cleaned up our spell checker trying to let it be faster and less intrusive. She, Michael, Pali, Dimitrios provided patches for a lot of small things they would fix and improve.
This resulted in more than 20 real bugs resolved.
So, long story short. Upgrade to 2.2! And enjoy…
PS: Given we have some more “minor” features to code & push in master, I planned a 2.3 for next month. Hope you won’t be disappointed ;)
